Helped increase monthly revenue from email automation by 115% for one of the undisclosed companies I've worked for.
ROI & Innovation
Initiated one of the first implementations of two-way SMS with Marketo for News Corp Australia's classifieds and event departments.
Summary of results:
SMS proved to be 7x more effective than emails
Reduced SMS campaigns deployment time from 4 to 6 hours to 10 to 30 minutes
GDPR-proof with an automated data and subscription management via an SMS Centre
Saved the business up to 40% of SMS costs due to the flexibility of switching gateway providers
Leveraged two-way SMS to fast-track the Event check-in process, which saw over 60% of attendees confirm their check-in before arriving to the venue. This meant event organisers could time the start of the event more effectively.
Conceptualised the creation of a Vodafone Business Collateral iPad Application for Sales Reps (in 2011) to showcase brochure content to customers and act as a lead generation tool. This not only increased leads for the business, but also reduced print costs by more than $55K.
Managed the complete overhaul and relaunch of vodafone.com.au/business, resulting in a 279% increase in leads generated and 103% increase in online sales within just 6 months from launch.

Developed a Case Study that assessed the impact of the Surfers In A Dress campaign and derived valuable insights for other One Girl campaigners looking to optimise their charitable events.
Over the 5 years of running the event, Surfers In A Dress had been featured on Channel 7 Sunrise (twice), SBS News, News.com.au, Herald Sun, the Daily Telegraph, Melbourne Radio, and we made it onto the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald. The event helped build a supportive community of likeminded surfers and friends in the Bondi Beach area.
