JUL 2013 – PRESENT | Barcelona, Spain | Founder

A boutique online marketing agency born in the Amsterdam startup scene, developed in Barcelona. Where there are problems, we come up with solutions. We propose, we don’t wait for you to ask. For us, you would never be just another client. We choose our clients and we have a partnership approach.

Work with digital rockstars who love and understand the online world. Work with data-driven professionals who apply startup ways and help businesses become more dynamic and thrive.

Achievements

  • From tech startups to traditional mid-size businesses, from Travel, Sport, Education, HR, Fintech & SaaS businesses to Insurance, from short term projects to long term partners, we’ve continuously over-delivered, never stopped learning & experimenting with new ways to help our clients grow.
  • Through high-end content & thought leadership, we’ve built online reputations & presented our partners as the solution to their clients’ needs, while increasing website traffic, shortening sales cycles & expanding their businesses.
  • Laser targeted Google Ads campaigns enabled us to accelerate our clients’ growth which resulted in their teams tripling in size.
  • Highly engaging & to the point, Facebook & Instagram advertising helped us achieve record-breaking event attendances to all-time high program applications for different clients & sectors.

Testimonials.

  • Effective keyword research, clear & concise goal-oriented storytelling resulted in up to 300% increase in traffic after a website relaunch for a number of clients.
  • With engaging, organic social media marketing, we had the privilege to be a part of a local success story. We helped Trip4real overachieve traffic & sales targets before successfully getting acquired by Airbnb.
  • Through ongoing optimization & experiments with marketing automation, email sequences that successfully nurture leads, we saved time to sales teams & allowed them to focus on closing the deal.
  • All of this, and more, was achieved with a great team of young professionals I hired, mentor & help develop into ambitious marketing professionals. At the same time, they help me grow as a leader and improve my management skills every day.

Testimonials.

“It was a pleasure working with Andrea and her team – they helped us a ton! No onboarding process was needed, from day one they understood our value proposition, the problems startup founders face, how to reach them, get them to take action & apply for our incubation program. As a result, we got a record number of applications!”
