01/2021 - Present

Anticipated launch in fall 2021.

  • Setup of all relevant marketing channels (Instagram, Facebook, newsletter)

More to be disclosed soon.

08/2020 - Present
Performance Marketing
Cena Food Concept GmbH (< 10 employees)
Consumer goods and retail
The company has been operating a webshop (online butchery) since 2016. Until summer 2020, sales stagnated or hardly developed. Therefore, the sale or closure of the business was considered.

In August 2020, I was called in to the project and my task was increase sales through Google Ads and move the business towards break-even as quickly as possible.

Original To Dos:
  •     Keyword research
  •     Set up Google Tag Manager
  •     Set up Google Ads
  •     Set up and link Google Shopping
  •     Create Ad Texts
  •     Configure Google Analytics correctly
  •     Monitoring
  •     Optimization
  •     Reporting

To Dos in the further course:
  •     Strategy development
  •     Reactivation of the newsletter (now published weekly)
  •     Reactivation of the blog (1 article per month)
  •     Setup of Microsoft Ads
  •     Training & Coaching for SEO
  •     Correction of SEO-relevant weaknesses in cooperation with a developer
  •     First tests in the direction of influencer marketing
  •     Creation of a postcard campaign to reactivate previous customers
  •     Setup on Ebay
  •     Setup of Facebook Ads
  •     Target group planning
  •     Campaign creation for Facebook Ads

Interim conclusion:
  •     Sales have steadily increased from month to month. In fall last year by up to 350% and between 10 and 220% in the months thereafter.
  •     The Cost-Per-Acquisition could be reduced from 18 - 20 Euro to 8 - 12 Euro.
  •     The Click-Through-Rate increased from an average of 1% to 1.5%.
  •     Conversion tracking was not set up before my time - but is at a very good level with an average of 2.6%
  •     For the year 2021, a solid six-figure turnover and a growth of 500% compared to the previous year is expected.

03/2021 - 05/2021
Performance-Marketing
Vertraulich (< 10 employees)
Consumer goods and retail
The newly founded, unofficial B2C subsidiary of a well-known, B2B dealer for flooring urgently needed competent support in customer acquisition. Already in the pitch phase, I created two different marketing strategies (brand marketing vs performance marketing) and a detailed marketing concept for the client.

The client was completely inexperienced in marketing, which is why a great deal of clarification work and expectation management was necessary with regard to the possibilities of the planned marketing budget. The client's company operates in an extremely competitive market dominated by home improvement retailers (DIY stores) and large online stores. Some of the latter have a head start of more than 10 years - and have built up a strong presence accordingly.

Original To Dos:
  •     Keyword research
  •     Competitive analysis
  •     Setup of Google Tag Manager
  •     Setup of Google Search Console
  •     Setup of Google Ads
  •     Setup of the Google Merchant Center
  •     Campaign creation
  •     Setup of Google Analytics
  •     Setup of Google My Business
  •     Onpage analysis (SEO)
  •     Reporting

Additional To Dos:
  •     Setup of a second Google Ads account ....
  •     Liaison with Google ...
  •     Setup of Microsoft Ads
  •     Creation of campaigns on Microsoft Ads
  •     Setup of Facebook Business Manager
  •     Creation of campaigns on Facebook
  •     Support on Instagram
  •     Support on Paypal

Challenges:
  •     New, unknown brand
  •     High competition with strong, established competitors
  •     Very high click prices
  •     Expensive peak times
  •     Small budget
  •     Customer wants to grow fast and be profitable
  •     Comparatively small product range
  •     No existing advertising material
  •     No in-house marketing resources

Achievements:
Despite the chaotic start, KPIs looked good. The client achieved a high five-figure result for the second consecutive month and the Ad Spend was inline with the budget.

Annotation:
Unfortunately, the client has not paid any of my invoices to date, so I stopped working with them in May.

Challenges
  • In medical and medical technology marketing, there are special hurdles that do not exist in other industries.

02/2018 - 06/2019
Marketing Team Lead
resmio (10-50 employees)
Internet and Information Technology
resmio is a popular online reservation system (SaaS) for restaurants founded in 2012. The company grew rapidly in northern Germany and managed to secure a good market share in the DACH-region. In 2016 the company went through a rather difficult period and had to scale down its operations. A year later, the founders left the company and a new CEO joined instead. He decided to relocate everything from Berlin to Nuremberg and offered the statt to come along. An offer all of them declined.

The CEO therefore embarked on a search for a new management team. I was the first new hire, together with the Head of Sales. The relocation was an open-heart surgery. There was no hand-over in my department. However, there was an ongoing, revenue-critical system and a lot of legacy issues.

Objective
  •     Survive
  •     Establish a new marketing department
  •     Generate at least 50 leads per sales person per month via Google Ads and / or Facebook Ads (registrations)

To Dos:
  •     Creation of new campaigns
  •     Creation of landing pages
  •     Creation of a newsletter
  •     Creation of an Instagram channel
  •     New development and relaunch of the website
  •     Development of a blog
  •     Recruitment of new marketing staff
  •     Oboarding of new marketing staff
  •     Recruitment and management of new agencies
  •     Exploration of new advertising channels
  •     Establishment of an affiliate marketing program

Team size:
  •     Two student workers
  •     One marketing manager
  •     Later also one online marketing manager

Achievement:
  • Ads conversion of up to 15%.
  • Landing page conversion of up to 22%.
  • A very successful postcard campaign with 13% conversion and much lower cost-per-acquisition

02/2013 - 12/2017
Marketing Manager
Blue Cell Networks / Safectory (10-50 employees)
Internet and Information Technology
The company specializes in tracking solutions and mostly develops the necessary hardware for sister or parent companies. Originally, large real estate companies, e.g. operators of shopping centers, as well as companies from the transport sector were among the most important customers.

I was originally employed by the company as a working student for sales tasks. Due to a lack of human resources, the position increasingly transformed into a marketing position.

To Dos:
  •     Creation of multiple pitch decks
  •     Creation of product presentations
  •     Creation of advertising copy, claims and key messages
  •     Development of a marketing plan as part of a new business plan
  •     Design and development of multiple websites using WordPress
  •     Creation of promotional materials
  •     Creation of textual content for further use, e.g. in business letters
  •     Creation of press releases
  •     Creation of a newsletter with Mailchimp
  •     Coordination of assistants (working students, media designers, etc.)
  •     Presentation of the company at events (trade fairs, congresses, pitch nights, etc)
  •     Lectures at universities
Achievements:
  • Through my work, I managed to open several important "doors". Two of these led to larger contracts
