Marketing Audit & Roadmap Report

£2,500 GBP + VAT

Improve your Shopify focused business with a unique, in–depth, research–focused marketing roadmap that gives you a fresh perspective on your business.

Typically turned around in four weeks this package is ideal for business owners who have a very specific marketing need, for example:

"How do I get more users to install my Shopify app?"

Or a more open ended question, for example:

"Our agency has relied heavily on word–of–mouth so far but know we need to embrace other forms of marketing, where should we start?"

Together we'll assess where you are now, where you'd like to be and devise a strategy to help you get there. Each roadmap is designed to be realistic, achievable, and measurable. I won't recommend tripling your team tomorrow but I will show you how you can start to increase your marketing efforts incrementally and get results.

Additional Services

In addition to the above packages I am also interested in working with Shopify focused businesses who require:

Non-Executive Directorship

I am keen to work with Shopify focused businesses in need of an independent, experienced, and impartial voice on their board and/or leadership team.

With over 20 years experience working in a variety of technology, web, and SaaS focused businesses, (including 6+ at Shopify) I'll bring insight and value to your business strategy, help with your growth and hiring plans, and work with you to propel your business forward.

Event Consultancy

With over a decades experience of conceiving, curating, and hosting technology and business-related events I've learned how to turn an idea into a reality. Whether you have a burning desire to run your first conference or need help curating a line-up and getting the best from your speakers I can help you deliver a successful and impactful event.

Given the varying nature of these engagements prices will vary. Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing any of these opportunities.

Pricing, Billing, VAT, Third–Party Costs, & Travel Expenses

Pricing

I believe in open and honest pricing, it's why I publish my rates publically. Before starting out together we'll agree the package of work, the total or monthly cost, the duration of the project and document it all in an easy to understand contract.

Billing

For on–going retainer based engagments I issue invoices at the beginning of each month and kindly ask you pay within seven days. For project based work I request 50% on signing and 50% on completion.

VAT (Value Added Tax)

I am registered for VAT in the UK (registration number 177672955). If applicable VAT will be charged at 20% and clearly stated on the invoice.

Third–Party Costs

Some projects will require third–party contributions (e.g. content producers, printing, etc). I'll identify these costs well in advance and will only proceed with your written agreement. These can be billed as project expenses or settled directly.

Travel Expenses

I love to travel and am happy to get on a train or plane to meet you in person. All reasonable travel expenses will be agreed in advance and I will pass on copies of all receipts with my invoice.

UK meetings outside of the South–West generally require train fare and a single nights accommodation. For longer trips, I respectfully request flights and a minimum of two nights accommodation (i.e. the night before the meeting and the night of our meeting. This means we can get the most from our time together).

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
