About Alex

Looking for a talented marketer/business developer to join www.DontSendMeACard.com

DontSendMeACard is an online alternative to the £1.4 bn greeting card market in the UK. The site utilises a crowdfunding business model. Users create a page for their special occasion and request that friends and family contribute the cost equivalent of a card and postage, to go to a good cause.

This is built in collaboration with a web development firm. The site is fully functional, and is attracting charity partners and press attention. I'm looking for someone who buys into the vision and potential that can work with me to find the right product/market fit and scale the business. This will ideally cover digital marketing, content marketing, finding the right channels to refine the target audience, and overall converting people to the idea of an online alternative to a very traditional industry.

My background is in graphic design and creative. I also operate Future Imaging www.futureimaging.co.uk where specialist design services for tech companies are provided. I have 14 years experience, 5 of which running Future Imaging.
