After a 15 year international career in data driven direct marketing, I have started my own consultancy business and now offer my extensive online and offline marketing knowledge and skills to a wide range of B2B and B2C companies, as well as charities. With a strong passion for technology, I possess the rare ability to both define and execute complex digital marketing strategies. As a marketing consultant, I am now available for anyone looking for a new marketing strategy, to get the most out of their campaigns or add a valuable and flexible asset to their marketing team.
I created my first blog in 1996 and have never been offline since. With a solid background in data driven Direct Marketing, I am able to not just make your campaigns look good, but make them work too. My recent work includes setting up and managing complex websites and CMS, running large Social Media Campaigns and creating and curating Youtube channels.
Having worked in Direct Marketing for 15 years, I know the entire industry inside out and have all the tools required to make any data driven acquisition and retention campaign a success (DM, eDM, TM, DRTV, CRM, eCRM). Over the years I have been able to translate the traditional science of DM and CRM and apply them successfully to digital media.
During my international marketing career, I held many different senior management positions and was involved in projects ranging from setting up a national cross-platform magazine, to creating a continuity book series with Sesame Workshop in NY. More recently I have managed many digital projects like setting up complex marketing automation sequences and managing large digital fundraising projects.
Martijn is a true marketing professional - smart, clever, experienced and hands on. Martijn recently worked with us helping on creating CRM plans for clients and was a real asset to our team. It's wonderful to work with someone who can think linearly and logically but also stretch to creative "outside the box" planning. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.
Martijn is a rare beast. He has a wide range of digital marketing skills, and an appetite for more. He will turn his hand to many things and is as happy updating websites and generating keyword lists as he is cutting graphics or editing video. The point is, in fact, he's happy; so not only smart, skilled and co-operative but cheerful, easy-going and hilarious - a joy to work with.
An experienced marketing professional, Martijn has a track record for building solid marketing programmes that produce superb results. A keen advocate of test and learn, he never rests on his laurels and is always looking to improve on whatever the current status is. Add to this, a rare charm and integrity and it's easy to see why I hope we continue to work with Martijn for many years to come.
I have worked with Martijn over a number of years. He is a very accomplished and professional marketer with core direct marketing skills and a fan of measurable marketing and testing. He is also charming, creative and great to work with. I look forward to working with him in the future.
Martijn's work was characterised by his hard work and dedication. He was an inspirational leader for his team and a strong voice in the management team. Personally, he was great to work with and very positive influence on the business at all times. He achieved a lot and also drove the success through a determined focus and ability to influence people along the way to achieve our aims.
Martijn is a great marketing consultant. I engaged him to work on several concurrent projects in the first quarter of 2014, and he delivered exactly what I needed, even when I didn't know exactly what I needed! His skills in direct marketing were exemplary. He setup smart project management systems, managed lead generation campaigns, liaised with third party suppliers, and he did a fantastic job in running complicated marketing campaigns. I will hire Martijn again.
