LOYAKK SUMMARY

• Whilst I was studying for my Marketing Masters and doing some travelling, I marketed part-time for LoYakk, a Silicon Valley start-up community building app.

• For my first project, gaining a following at Universities, I took Surrey to the most commented and liked world location, ahead of Yale, NYU and Stanford. This was achieved by the sponsorship of 5 key societies on campus to gain credibility and a big promotional event.

• I was then promoted to the commercial team where I created an e-mail campaign targeting app developers to embed the community within their mobile apps. The campaign received click through and open rates up to 2x the industry and list averages.

• Finally, I am working on a campaign targeting top four and five star hotels in London. The landing page web site I created received commendation from the CEO. (www.loyakkhotelapp.com).

OTHER PROJECTS SUMMARY

• Also whilst studying for my Masters, I marketed part-time for a charity, who provide free educational resources across the world online. The charity is chaired by a former Senior IBM Executive who was my Manager and Mentor.

• Since a site re-launch the site has averaged +14.9% month on month growth. The download figure, the number 1 metric, was 5x that of the previous year from, 2013 vs 2012 and in the first 6 months of 2014 is double that of 2013. A promotional article I wrote was published on page 2 of an online national magazine.

• I conducted and SEO and social media audit and a re-design to the home page, resulting in the bounce rate dropping by 4.2%and social sharing increasing by 50%.

• This helped the charity win a \'People\'s Choice New Media Award\' and took it to the Top 12k web sites in the UK (Alexa ranking).

• I also launched a Pay per Click campaign for this site and another to drive site visits and learn key insights.
