Design / UX

Design/UX can be the bottleneck or the accelerant. I derived my experience from running small optimisations when doing CRO and by making big bets right now as a Growth PO. In order to speed up our teams velocity I'm doing a portion of the shaping up of designs myself. So I can really help you out here ;-)


Product Management

The future of your product is in you and your teams hands. How do you deal with your team, company goals and balance everything. I'm currently living this as a Growth PO and I'm more than willing to help you anywhere I can. How to come up and prioritise your improvements? How to bet big? How to deliver fast?


Conversion Rate Optimisation

If you're looking to refine your customer journey by running A/B tests then this is where I can help you with. I've used both Google Optimize as Dynamic Yield to set up experiments. These experiments and my perspective on CRO have been featured multiple times by Google on their Google Optimize Hub. AMA on CRO, from ideation to setting up or analyzing the experiment. Also if you're stuck in the CRO process or lack one, I can help you with a default setup that will get you in action mode.


Mindset Coaching

You made it this far, but how the hell do you continue. Questions like: How do I coach my team? How do I make sure they are as motivated as me? How do I stay optimistic amidst the challenges my company faces? How do I manage my stakeholders? How do I start as a freelancer or land a job within growth marketing? AMA and let me guide you through the noise. It's not rocket science, it's rocket execution.


Mentor Toolkit
Mixpanel
4 years of experience

I've been using Mixpanel for a while and although I can help you by using the tool, I rather challenge you on asking the right business questions. This is what will set you apart, not your Mixpanel skills.

Hotjar
6 years of experience

A simple tool but essential into gather slightly more qualitative data. Used this tool on all my 40+ freelance assignments as a freelancer and also at every dayjob in the past four years.

Google Tag Manager
4 years of experience

Your best friend, whether you can code or not. Link all your tools to your GTM container and solely link your GTM to all the individual tools. I've used it for anything from setting up events to linking tools and setting up outlier triggers and variables.

Instapages
3 years of experience

I've built Instapage LP's for more than 30 companies over the past two years, mainly to land job applicants and leads. I know a thing or two on how to get most out of it and some of its pitfalls.

Adwords
4 years of experience

Single Keyword Ad Groups (SKAGs) are my best friend. If you are running a temporary campaign/project and think you can get away by a non-scalable way to get a +90% impression share and compete with the big guys - SKAGs are what you're looking for. I can help you out here.

Google Analytics
5 years of experience

Although fancy tools will help you get a grip on your analytics, having GA as a backup for all these tools is super helpful. Either to double check data that you don't trust or to play around with reporting.

Mailchimp
4 years of experience

Set up automations to confirm subscriptions, drip campaigns and more with help MailChimp. I've used MailChimp to set up automated messages, based on triggers by the user. Triggers based on activity, inactivity and email behavior.

Gino was fantastic and had a ton of information for me. We chatted for well over the time limit! He helped me with my pricing page design, UX issues, website issues, and also chatting about my product and how I could better position it. I left with a page of notes and some key takeaways to think about! Highly recommend getting on a call with Gino.

I had my first ever GrowthMentors call with Gino and didn't really know what to expect. Luckily, Gino led the conversation and made some great suggestions. We mostly talked about getting a better picture of who my current customers are and what the visitors coming to my site are looking for. I left the call with clear steps on what to do next.

Gino has tremendous passion for this work. I was fortunate that he had worked as a Growth Hacker in the same space I'm in so his insights proved useful in multiple ways. Key takeaway: double down on the focus of product-market fit.

I did have a problem with finding the right messaging for a new marketing campaign. Gino helped with bringing some interesting perspectives. And he helped me to get clear what my next actions should be. Besides helping me I really enjoyed the call with Gino! The first thing he thinks about is helping people. Gino is friendly, patient and takes the time to listen. Don't hesitate to contact him if you have any questions about things he has experience with. I am grateful for this call.
