Businesses that have successfully raised funds with Crowdcube include BrewDog, Camden Town Brewery, carwow, JustPark, eCar Club , Feedr, Freetrade , Grind, Innis & Gunn, Mindful Chef , Monzo, Parcel2Go, Pod Point , Revolut, and Nutmeg .
Crowdcube briefed Traktion to find a Facebook ads expert that could support them with their campaigns. These campaigns are tight, fast turnaround and require extraordinary agility to optimise in campaign and drive performance faster than the FB algorithm is used to. This assignment would require someone with specific knowledge of funding campaigns as well as Facebook Ads knowledge.
Traktion matched joe to this brief because not only is he only a verified Facebook ads expert but he previously ran the Facebook ads for one of Kickstarter’s top 20 campaigns eve - so he understands how funding campaigns work: the speed, campaign and platform considerations.
Joe has worked on multiple Crowdcube campaigns - each one has been fast turnaround (often just a few hours) with multiple creatives and unique set ups.
“As a fast, growing company we need flexible, expert resource that we can rely on to help us achieve our objectives and Traktion has made the whole process of finding the right fit much easier.”
