B1G1 | Feb 2016 – Apr 2018
Creating a World Full of Giving: B1G1 is a business giving community with over 3000 members worldwide.
Through persistent testing, I optimized a marketing funnel that brought in 100+ leads a month, increasing the percentage of digital leads from <5% to ~50%. This involved created a host of digital assets such as webinars, e-books, online quizzes, videos, blogposts, checklists, CTA banners, referral and trial programmes, before we found the winning formula that effectively converted new members at scale – in the form of a Giving Plan.
Apart from building funnels, I pioneered the Joy of Giving Week Campaign, Giving Tuesday campaign, and Christmas Giving campaign, as well as kickstarted the now-thriving Business for Good Community group to increase member engagement. I organized the annual Study Tour to Cambodia, global Business for Good Conferences, and the Charity Impact Awards.
Programmatic Campaign Specialist

I handled the programmatic media buys for Samsung, Mcdonalds, NEA, BPI, and Swarovski, amongst other brands. Within 1 month, I was managing over 40 campaigns across a variety of DSPs and exchanges such as Doubleclick Bid Manager and The Trade Desk. It was through this stint that I learnt the complex optimization strategies involved in performance marketing.
