I'll help you add the ingredients your startup needs to gain traction & grow.

You have a

... but it's not enough.

If you want to nail that funding round, reach profitability, or simply stay afloat, you'll need to grow.

And while your product is important, it won’t get you there alone. You need to add the essential ingredients that
will help you:
  • – Target the right audience with a compelling message
  • – Guide people towards your product’s value
  • – Convert them into paying customers
  • – Turn those customers into loyal, profitable advocates
You could try to figure this out on your own, consuming every book, blog, and podcast on growth that you can find.

But that's likely to leave you frustrated, with jumbled lists of ideas & tactics that just don't connect.

You could hire a full-time CMO or Head of Growth, but that’s a big commitment, especially in these early stages.

And agencies? They'll pass your project over to junior team members, when what you really need is experience and expertise.

There is another option.

Hi, I'm David Turnbull.

I’ve spent the past decade helping early-stage startups add the ingredients they need to gain traction and grow.

I understand the challenges you’re facing, and how we need to be creative to succeed when we have limited resources.

Copying the strategies & tactics of larger startups won't work – that’s like watching a video of Usain Bolt sprinting to teach yourself how to walk. 
Oliver Stevens
Founder, Oliver James Group
"Our growth was stalling until David arrived. He sparked a swift turnaround, and within a few weeks our sales were increasing and continued to grow until we were acquired."

How I can

As a growth specialist, I can provide you with:
and more.

Startups need flexibility, so a range of on-demand, interim, advisory & project-based options are available.
Tre Wee

“I don’t think I’ve met anyone else with David’s enthusiasm and capacity for knowledge and learning new skills.” 

A little more

I was the first marketing hire at a venture-backed B2B SaaS startup, then went on to become co-owner of an e-commerce business that scaled to acquisition.

I primarily work with early-stage startups, so I understand the problems you're facing and have the tools to help you solve them. 

I’m solution agnostic. I only recommend tools, tactics or channels if I believe they are the best option.

With my help you'll have a clear roadmap to traction & growth, tailored specifically to the needs of your business.
