Growth Hacking

Need creative ways to grow your startup? I have first hand experience working in many startups employing various growth tactics over the full AARRR funnel: Acquisition, Activation, Revenue, Referral, Retention.


PPC Strategies

I have managed and led multi-million ad budgets for different companies in different verticals investing in different areas such as Paid Search (Google & Bing), Paid Social (FB, LinkedIn, etc), Native (Taboola/Outbrain) and other programmatic/display channels (GDN, YouTube, Quora, BuySellAds etc). I can help you dig into what isn't working, find opportunities and formulate strategies and tactics to seriously make a big dent in your paid marketing growth.


SEO

I self-taught myself SEO back in 2009. Since then I have grown SEO channels of brands such as Typeform from 0 visits per month to generating millions in revenue per year. I have experience with both large and small websites: international SEO, technical SEO, content marketing strategies, off-page & on-page SEO tactics, etc. I will help you take your SEO to the next level of growth.


Conversion Rate Optimisation

I have analysed dozens of website funnels and ran hundreds of experiments to improve the conversion rates at different parts of the funnel: from landing pages to increase lead gen or sign up rates ... to email subject line A/B testing ... to in-product CRO to boost activation rates ... and checkout page funnel flow optimisations to increase revenue.


Technology and Tools

I built my own ed-tech SaaS company from scratch and have built several tools to automate processes ... as well as productivity - I founded www.gopomodoro.com to scratch my own itch. I also have experience with many tools and technologies (see below)


Link Building

Link building is not only essential for increasing rankings, it carries many other benefits such as building critical relationships. I have experience doing link building myself and also working with freelance link builders to scale it operationally. I can teach you not only how to effectively build links, but of how to get more than just links (the other "hidden" benefits)


Bootstrapping

I bootstrapped my own startup growing it to 150,000+ users. How did I do it? It all started with my obsession with creating websites .... and a single Google Ads voucher for $75 worth of advertising credit. Book a call and I'll tell you how I did it :-)


Venting Frustration

Do you feel like you're not able to move the needle, and no matter what you try things just don't seem to be working out the way you planned them? Failing is learning and I have failed more than I'd like to admit! And if you're stuck in the same place, I can give you advice to get things moving.


Product Management

I built my own product from scratch and scaled it to 150,000+, and that didn't happen by chance. I've also worked with dev teams in startups using Scrum and I can show you how to get close to your customers creating continuous feedback loops to inform your product strategy.


Mindset Coaching

The difference between yourself and someone successful could simply be your mindset and the way you think and approach problems. Let's chat and I can coach you on how to think in order to grow a successful startup.

Jake's got an incredible working experience in virtually all the most popular PPC channels yet is still super chilled about it. He truly just wants to help. We went over the Facebook and Adwords strategy for GrowthMentor and through talking to him I realized that I had a high-performing campaign I had totally forgot about a year ago that I could clone and use as a base. Oops!

The biggest gains from mentor calls come from actionable advice to a specific scenario, and Jake is definitely no stranger home runs on those points. I came into this call looking to 1) validate an approach to building out a software marketing interface 2) identify how to build out a list of initial users. Jake provided very insightful advice on both. He provided a thorough overview of the pros and cons of various interfaces I was considering which can save me a lot of time, and additionally, he provided really great suggestions for how to effectively build out that initial list with some tips that will certainly increase conversions. Highly, highly recommend!

My session with Jake was an incredible one. He took time to understand my business, and gave advice and ideas of things that I can focus on that will help my company grow while in the early stages. His advice is actionable, and that matters a lot to me. His experience and skills in marketing/growth are very apparent when he's talking about ways to grow your business online. I really appreciated this session, and I know I will be booking more. 10/10!

A good mentor can assess where you are at and just provide enough to get you to the next level without overwhelm. This is exactly what I needed when I reached out to Jake. With his knowledge of PPC and marketing strategy could have easily left me in overwhelm but instead he gave me the few key nuggets that I can immediately take action on, test some things, and review my strategy based on the initial results. He helped provide me a framework for how to ease my way into the PPC space. I feel I've just scratched the surface. I highly recommend working with him.
