HI.

I'M WILLIAM.

I'M YOUR MAN.

Over the last five years, I have helped numerous start-ups launch and scale their growth engines. Most recently, I helped to build the growth engines for a B2B startup (millions in pipeline generated) and a B2C startup (1,000% YoY engagement growth). In short, I love helping startups acquire, activate, and retain customers. 

I look forward to applying what I’ve learned to help you drive quantifiable results.

What I Will Bring To Your Company

Company Builder Approach

  • I am not looking for a day job. Heck, if I were, I would have accepted one of the recent job offers I’ve received. Instead, I’m seeking to help really grow a company I believe in. I’m seeking to work hard alongside of people that I know are the best at what they do. I’m looking to make a difference in people’s lives and have fun along the way.

‚ÄčGrowth Hacker Mentality

  • I’m creative—I love figuring out unique and powerful ways to solve tough problems.  

  • I’m data driven—I hypothesize, test, and track everything and use the data from my experiments to drive future decisions in an effort to maximize ROI.

  • I’m scrappy—I pride myself on my ability to figure out how to get things done regardless of the roadblocks before me, such as limited resources.

  • I’m intellectually curious—I am always learning new skills, tactics, and tricks via books, blogs, podcasts, and courses as well as by talking with experts. 

I’d love to chat with you this week to answer any questions you may have. Fill out the form to the right to get the conversation started!

Professional Accomplishments

Don't Take My Word for It

"I had a great time working with William and recommend him to any company looking to add a creative, product-minded marketer to their team. He's very strategic, well-rounded and versatile. He knows at least something about almost every aspect of customer acquisition and product management and is quick to identify smart solutions to challenging problems. William's initiative and cleverness allow him to figure his way through any problem he encounters."

"Not only does William have the business know how, product feel, and creativity to devise powerful strategies to hit any growth goal you may have, he has the follow through and tactical skills to see them through execution and analysis. William also stays in the know about any new development which make him a great team member. In short, he’s really good at what he does and fun person to work with. Some of his Growth ideas are the kind of stuff you will not hear anywhere else."

More About William 

Talk Is Cheap

Instead of telling you what I can do, I wanted to begin to show you...

  • A/B Testing—I’m A/B testing this very landing page. I have a lot of experience devising hypotheses and executing A/B tests. Typically, I use tools such as Optimizely to decrease the time and development resources necessary for launching each test.

  • Manage Paid Spend—You likely landed on this page because you or someone you know saw an ad on Twitter. In addition to managing spend on Twitter, I have extensive experience with AdWords, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Retargeting (Display, Facebook, and Twitter).

  • Copywriting—I wrote every word you see here—minus the testimonials, of course. :)

  • HTML, CSS, and JS—I leveraged all three technologies to create the landing page you are looking at now.

  • Google Analytics—It’s installed on this page, and I will be reviewing the data later to inform future tests. 

 

In addition to everything tech start-ups, William loves breakfast tacos, dogs, short e-mails, and Amazon Prime. He currently resides in Austin, Texas, with his beautiful wife, Elizabeth.

 

Two Truths and a Lie

  • William almost died at Disney World.

  • William taught Chamillionaire how he should use Twitter.
