Stéphanie Claudel, Marketing Strategist 🇫🇷🇬🇧

She’s a "Fat T" Marketer with 15 years of experience, and a strong background in areas such as SEO, Content Strategy and Conversion Marketing.
  • She first started in Paid Ads at Yahoo!, then worked for the Search Team on new features and algorithm updates, and projects related to the User Search Experience (SXO) and the Search Journey.
  • She was a popular SEO public figure in another life. She still performs killer SEO and Content audits — you’ll need the stomach for it.
  • She ran a network of online magazines under Search Box for many years, all monetised. Among other things, she can grow a website from 0 to 100K monthly UV in less than 1 year with SEO-driven Content Strategies and no artificial link building. She’s done it many times.
  • She can double your sales and optimise your ROAS with a full-funnel and multi-channel approach, and foolproof techniques to delivering conversions (Paid, CRO).
  • She can grow a new venture into a 500K ARR business in record time with integrated Marketing Strategies built from scratch. She hasn’t saved lives yet, but she certainly did save jobs and businesses on the brink more than once.
  • She has extensive experience with omnichannel marketing tactics (Social, Advertising, Website, Email Marketing, Content Marketing, Branding, Events.)
  •  Avid learner, she’s completely self-taught. She built her first website in 2000. Her latest interests lie in Social Advertising and building Engagement through Content and Communities.
  • Gifted with a very analytical yet creative mind, all her decisions are based on actual observations, data and results. You’ll have to know your key metrics for a fruitful collaboration.
She’s also a programme Director at The Founder Institute in Berlin, the world’s first pre-seed Startup Accelerator. Berlin is the best performing chapter amongst 200+ cities across the globe, and where she’s already mentored 60+ young founders in the art of Marketing and building a strong, sustainable business. She also designed and currently leads the Marketing & Branding strategy for the local chapter, with the ambition to expand its influence to a European scale and become the no-brainer programme of choice for early-stage founders.

Stéphane Renaud, Search Marketing Expert 🇫🇷🇪🇸🇬🇧

He's the relentless practitioner. With a background in Business Administration and close to 10 years doing SEO, first, then specialising in Paid Advertising, Stéphane is a very data-driven and no-nonsense type of Marketer — the perfect mindset for skyrocketing ROAS.
  • Also proficient in Display, Google Shopping, YouTube Ads and Universal App Campaigns (UAC), omnichannel marketing tactics and automation.
  • He develops and executes high-performing, best-in-class multi-channel programmes with real-time monitoring and adjustments to leverage multi-touch attribution and optimise the customer journey. As well as longer-term reviews to gauge how leads are maturing through the funnel.
  • He gets 20% CTR on the regular.
  • He can double your sales with just a 15% increase in Ads budget. Did he generate a 95% increase and half-a-million in revenue for a large eCommerce brand this way? Yes, he did.
  • Cursed yet blessed with a very practical mind, all his decisions are evidence-based: your numbers don’t lie! You’ll have to know your key metrics, and be willing to do on-page optimisation if necessary, to rip all the benefits from his long practice of PPC.
  • He makes easy-to-read-and-understand types of reports.
  • Fun fact, he wrote his master’s thesis on the topic of online Advertising 20+ years ago.
He’s also been teaching SEO, Google Ads and Google Analytics since 2012, to hundreds of students, and shows no signs of tiring.
He’s living the dream life in-between Barcelona & Montpellier, in the South of France.

Marketing Plan

Your Marketing plan

We create an "especially-for-you" marketing strategy with a clear roadmap and the KPIs to measure against and then...
This is month 1.

Action, reaction

... We get the ball rolling: we set up all processes and tools, and put our plan into action by doing the actual work.
We report back on our results on a monthly basis, assess our results and revise the strategy on a quarterly basis (according to new business priorities and OKRs, resource levels, etc.)
This is month 2, 3 and 4. By the end of that timeline, the execution of the plan is delegated to your in-house team or external consultants. From there, we only do reporting and adjustments to the strategy.
