The Challenge

Expedia had acquired a collection of brands in the vacation retal industry to compete against AirBnb, including VRBO, HomeAway, Homelidays, TopRural, among others.

Traditionally these brands had operated independently in different markets.

Expedia wanted to bring consistency, efficiency and scale to all their online media efforts

I joined the global marketing strategy team supporting them develop the infraestructura, processes and scale up their marketing efforts globally from this centralised team.

The Process

Led the global marketing acquisition strategy, roadmap campaign and testing plan across EMEA, Americas and APAC. Built the system, frameworks, best practices and scaling up of activities. 

  • Global acquisition strategy and roadmap.  Identifying segments, mapping customer acquisition journey (Media, CRM and Sales) and campaign planning and management. 
  • Media and programmatic team coordination: (Display/YouTube/Paid social, SEM, email, and Affiliates): Agreement on media budget distribution, mix of channel and testing/optimisation campaign roadmap. Partnering with product to develop the technology for advanced audience targeting, smart bidding, programmatic/ messaging and personalisation enablement.

More Case Study


GetAgent is a UK-based real estate agent comparison website that uses data to showcase the best performing real estate agents in every local area. They generate revenue by charging for introduced home sellers to the estate agents.

We were driving a lot of traffic to our pages but only a low double digit percentage of traffic were converting into leads. Given our acquisition strategy of pursuing a target audience in high intent channels, we knew we could perform better.




The client created a comfy face mask and wanted to quickly bring it to the mass market via Amazon. Even though they were quite familiar with how Amazon works, they wanted to be sure to give their product the BEST possible chance at success – especially in such high competition and a high volume market! So they decided that investing in a team of Amazon marketing Pro’s was the way to go. (great choice;)
