Crafting digital strategies for start ups and scale ups through growth hacking.

Hi, I’m Bart. I am an independent growth hacker and digital strategist with 6+ years experience in the field. I translate business propositions into scalable digital strategies to help companies meet their full potential.

Skills I bring to

the table

All my activities focus on creating long term sustainable growth. I use a full funnel focus approach  setting up experiments over different funnel phases  using tracking and data reporting to analyse results. Everything with the goal of identifying your next growth strategy.

Strategy & Consultancy

I help validate your business propositions, execute competitor landscape scans and help define KPI’s together with the North Star Metric. I do this by running Validation Sprints and Growth Sprints.

Marketing Automation

By automating marketing processes and combining the right software and tools, I help nurturing leads by giving them each a personalised experience. This varies from email automations to Messenger and WhatsApp bots.

Tracking & Analytics

Start understanding the impact of your business efforts. I translate data into valuable insights. KPI’s are translated to real-time dashboards and (bi)weekly analytic reports.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

I’ll help identifying quick (technical) wins to raise in search engine rankings with your website. Keyword research will allow me to create a long term SEO strategy including content planning and a backlinking.

Social Advertising

I’ll set up and manage your ad campaigns, identify important customer segments and set set up experiments to discover new channels to scale. Whether it is Instagram, Pinterest or TikTok.

Content Marketing 

Content marketing can be a good way to attract valuable leads. I’ll help you identify content gaps and translate these into an actionable roadmap. I’ll help with your content creation and planning, while keeping an eye on the ROI.
