Background

I am an online marketing & entrepreneurial passionate. Since my first contribution to a Start Up, I knew I wanted to learn more about online marketing to be able to ultimately create my own Start Up. Back then, just graduated, I had many ideas in my head but neither enough money nor knowledge to build a company.

So I started working for other Start Ups, (check my work experience in the sections below for more details) at first I worked as an Email Marketing intern at an Ecommerce Flash Selling Platform , where I was part of the initial team. After this awesome experience I moved into an early stage Marketing Agency, I worked there for more than a year as Head of Online Marketing. After I joined a bigger online marketing agency, that specialised in marketing for independent hotels and small chains. There I managed a team of up to 4 people working on PPC Campaigns, UX, Analytics, SEO & PPC Budgets... 


After 5 years of experience I was ready to start my own company.

Briefing my tasks where:

  • Create campaign messages and claims as well as the package descriptions (html code applying css inline styles, because of the CMS limitation) and the graphics ( Essentially jpg banners using Photoshop)
