Helping businesses to profitably scale their paid digital channels

James Nellany Profile

I’m James Nellany, Founder and Lead Consultant at Amplifyze Marketing.

I‘m a highly experienced digital growth marketer with a proven track record in profitably scaling paid digital marketing investments from zero to eight figures annually, as well as making significant improvements in the efficiency of existing paid digital channels.

To date I have directly managed or overseen more than £50M ($65M) in profitable digital marketing spend for clients and former employers.

Amplifyze Marketing is a digital growth marketing consultancy that I set up to help businesses to profitably scale their paid digital marketing channels. I offer a range of services including auditing, PPC account management, conversion rate optimisation, analytics, tracking & reporting, coaching, in-housing and advisory work.

I am the lead consultant on all projects, so when you work with Amplifyze you are primarily buying into my experience and expertise.

However, I also have access to a trusted network of experts in key areas (such as front end development and video production) to subcontract elements of work to, depending on specific project needs.

Some businesses I’ve worked with…

Naked Wines
Beauty Pie
onefinestay
Laylo
Ivy Pay
Majestic Wine
Pharmacy Prime
Lay & Wheeler

Services

Strategic / Technical Audits

Getting a third party expert to audit your existing digital marketing activity can be one of the highest ROI projects that you can invest in. I will deep dive into your existing paid digital activities and offer a fresh perspective to help you uncover untapped opportunities to take your growth to the next level.

PPC Account Management

I can manage your PPC accounts more strategically and more cost effectively than you will typically experience at a traditional digital marketing agency. I manage accounts across all main paid digital platforms covering Paid Search, Paid Social, Display, Native and Video.

Analytics, Tracking & Reporting

Analytics, tracking and reporting are the cornerstone of any successful paid digital marketing strategy. I can help you to define and implement best-in-class analytics, tracking and reporting functionality so that both your team and the channel algorithms have the accurate, timely and relevant data needed to turbocharge your growth.

Conversion Rate Optimisation

Increasing conversion rates by optimising your post-click customer journey is essential to achieving profitable scale in paid digital channels. I can help you define, prioritise, implement and measure effective conversion rate optimisation tests that will boost your conversion rates and dramatically increase your ability to scale paid channels profitably.

Coaching & Training

I am an experienced people developer and can help members of your team to accelerate their careers and maximise their effectiveness by developing their analytical, creative, technical and/or platform-specific skills.

In-housing

In-housing your digital marketing activity can provide greater control, flexibility, agility and cost efficiency. I have experience helping clients to successfully in-house their digital marketing as well as building in-house digital marketing teams from scratch.

Advisory

I am available for a range of one-time or ongoing paid advisory roles including strategy development, NED positions and due diligence.

I am confident that I can help your business exceed its growth goals, but don’t just take my word for it….

James’s critical thinking is unparalleled – he learns the ins and outs of every channel, and elegantly finds workarounds and technical hacks to get things done in an effective way without costly 3rd parties.

His ability to think on his feet in strategic terms is backed by his excellent capability in handling complex and ambiguous data with commercial intelligence rather than following rigid rules.”

FAQs

How much do you charge?2023-07-14T10:24:50+00:00

Every project is unique and so the short answer is it depends.

Broadly speaking, I work on either a retainer basis or an hourly/ day rate depending on the project type. This is based on expected time commitment required, plus any additional costs we need to add on (e.g. for subcontracting specific elements of projects to domain experts where needed). We can flesh out the specific details during our initial conversations and then I can provide you with a quote.

To de-risk the cost of projects, I offer zero tie-ins or notice periods as standard. I do not want you to continue to pay me for further work if you don’t think I’m adding value.

Where are you based?2023-06-20T15:01:04+00:00

I am based in London, UK, and am available for regular face-to-face meetings in London and the surrounding area if required.

However, I generally work on 100% remote projects and am available to serve clients based anywhere globally. I have managed campaigns targeting all parts of the world and I have specific and extensive experience targeting the US, UK and Australian markets in particular.

I am extremely flexible in terms of meeting times, so I can work with you regardless of which timezone you are in.

So please get in touch if you think I can help you regardless of your location!

I can’t find what I’m looking for in your services list – can you still help?2023-09-28T15:12:12+00:00

If my list of services doesn’t cover the specific digital/ growth marketing support you are looking for, please do still feel free to get in touch with more details regarding your needs.

The listed services are the typical types of project I currently provide to clients, but every situation is unique.

At the very least, I may be able to point you to someone who is better placed than myself to help out!

Do you have experience in my industry?2023-06-20T15:00:05+00:00

I’ve worked across many different industries and business models in my career, spanning both B2C and B2B, online and offline, as well as different company sizes (from small startups to global businesses).

I do not personally believe that specific industry experience is necessary to successfully scale paid digital campaigns, and have a track record of success when working in industries that are professionally new to me.

If I haven’t worked in your industry before, I will take the time to understand your business model, competitive landscape and target audience and I have the commercial acumen to adapt to specific industry nuances.
