Building a team

I have built teams from ground-up from 0 to 10+ team members in growth marketing and operations. I understand what might be needed at the beginning that might not be very useful later, and viceversa.


Growth marketing

I've worked 7+ years in very early-stage startups and helped build teams, campaigns, and strategies to hack the way out, learn quickly, iterate fast and use learnings for longer-term strategies


Mindset coaching

I've been a manager for 7+ years and currently in the process to become a certified coach so, happy to chat about mindset, coaching and how to get better at what you are doing


Marketing automation

Having used both Marketo and Hubspot, for pre-sale and post-sale strategies, I can help you piece together a strategy on what to use when, and how to have a strong marketing automation strategy.


Sales

With experience in SEM (push social ads), OOH, internet ads, and so on, I can help you devise push/outbound strategies for your startup. Working on an omnichannel strategy is a key aspect of it.


PPC strategies

With 7+ years of PPC and user acquisition experience and having managed more than $10M/yr, I can help you with your strategies/challenges. I can help you put together a strategy, set up tracking, think about customer journeys and so on


Mentor Toolkit
Hotjar
over 5 years of experience

HotJar is great. I've been using it since 2016. I love their recordings options and the heatmaps. I generally use it for quick analysis and to decide which tests to run then on VWO-

VWO
over 3 years of experience

This is a great tool for testing and running experiments. Currently using it and running at least 5-10 test at the same time. Very intuitive to use and great for CRO

Unbounce
over 4 years of experience

Unbounce is just great. I've worked with unbounce + Zapier + Marketo (and/or Hubspot) and created more than 100 pages for different tests and campaigns

LinkedIn
over 6 years of experience

LinkedIn Ads is a great platform if you know how to use it and for what. In the last 5 years, I've learned what works and what doesn't, and having managed $1M/yr on LinkedIn can help you come up with the right strategy for your company.

Facebook
over 9 years of experience

I've managed more than $5M/yr budgets on Facebook and run all type of campaigns (lead gen, awareness, purchase, remarketing, etc.). I'm more into the strategy than implementation now so, if you want to bounce ideas off with someone, let's connect!

Adwords
over 9 years of experience

I've been using Adwords for a while now, and managed more than $10M/yr in budget here alone. I'm more into the strategy than implementation as of now so, if help with strategy is what you need, let's connect!

Asana
over 4 years of experience

Asana is a great tool for project management and even personal management! I have all my personal tasks on Asana and also use it for my team (and the entire org)

Zapier
over 3 years of experience

I have been using zapier for the last 3 years and I love it! Connected almost anything with it! LinkedIn ads, spreadsheets, marketo, hubspot and so on. GREAT tool!

Marketo
over 4 years of experience

I've been using for the last 4 years and managed at least 40 campaigns at a time, with triggered, batch, and other-type of campaigns. Have connected it with Zapier and other tools too.

Google Webmaster Tools
over 5 years of experience

I have a good understanding on how to use GBT along with other Google suite tools, and how to leverage it for the product you are offering. Whether you just started with this or not, it's important to have the basics right

Google Analytics
over 7 years of experience

Been working with Google Analytics for several years now. Can help you review not only the basics, but also cohorts, channel groupings, attribution and more.

Heap
over 4 years of experience

I've been using Heap to analyze funnels for different products/services and pin-point which stages of the funnel need review + optimization. Great tool to see performance by channel, by funnel stage

Hubspot
over 3 years of experience

I've been working in Hubspot for the last 3 years, setting flows, automation campaigns, nurturing, and more. Piping live audiences from HS to ad platforms is something that works especially well for me

Rodrigo gave me priceless advice on growing my copywriting business, especially with regards to targeting tech clients, and charging them different rates based on their location, industry, level of seed funding, and what channels they are in. Initially, I'd booked the call for advice in finding a writing job in tech, but my call with Rodrigo helped me realize that I should pursue building my copywriting business, and interviewing for jobs in the meantime. Such a good call :) I look forward to checking in with Rodrigo in a month!!

Absolutely amazing - sometimes the answer lies right before you and you just need to take a step back to the basics to solve a complex and highly relevant challenge. Thank you Rodrigo for listening well and providing me with great ideas to solve our challenge.

Rodrigo has a background in education, and it shows when he is speaking with you. He can break concepts down to the point where they are easy to understand AND apply to your current situation. Highly recommended!

Great talk with Rodrigo, again a great example of someone who is here for simply sharing his knowledge and passion. Being a teacher in his earlier career he merged his passion with growth. And myself being a social entrepreneur values that highly. His advice was spot on and really helped me in refining my education proposition.
