Bigibila is a boutique vineyard that creates wines in harmony with the idyllic Victorian Pyrenees that surrounds it. These full-bodied reds are too good to keep cooped up, so I crafted engaging and SEO-friendly posts to bring connoisseur noses out of their spittoons and towards the Bigibila blog. Articles have included: ~Wine & Food Pairing ~Why we use Afterpay on our wines ~Sustainable Farming at the Bigibila Vineyards ~Sustainable Wine Making at Bigibila ~Why would you join a Wine Club?!

CityHood is a curated city guide app that lets you navigate a city by its unique neighbourhoods. Since cities can’t guide people by themselves, I trekked streets, crunched numbers and carefully crafted a content strategy that encompassed in-app content, blogposts, newsletters, social media, press releases and other marketing materials. Without using paid adverts, I tripled social reach & doubled downloads. London & the Cote Basque are live. Melbourne: coming soon.
Sometimes people pay me money for my opinions, so here’s a selection of them from The Debrief, The Malcontent & university media outlets
Social media automation is a blessing and curse; often requiring setup so arduous it offsets any of the time-saving benefits. SmarterQueue is a visually beautiful social media management platform whose homepage content and drip marketing emails flowed from these fingers of mine.
Student loans are hardly sexy, but my community communication skills made students care about this platform. Squeezing attention out of students is hardly easy, but my tactics tripled our Twitter following. Engaging in guerilla social media marketing, reaching out to students through uni media, Freshers Fairs, an ambassadorship program & a content strategy, I created a reputation without any ad spend. I crafted content that won us Innovate Finance’s People’s Choice at their Diversity Challenge Awards 2015.
I taught a computer to talk like a human in one of the earliest AI chatbots for marketing & finance. Leading research efforts, I’d gain an understanding of the target customer and how they thought, before teaching the system how to best answer their questions. Test projects included a global laundry detergent and an eponymous condiments brand, whilst live projects included BMW i and Panasonic.
