What we're about

Welcome to PIRATE SKILLS!

We are purpose-driven creators on the journey to master the art and science of growth marketing.

As founders and marketers, we know how hard it can be to reach a bigger audience for our products and clients. We all want to make a big impact in the world, but its tough to figure out the right channels, technologies and habits that will get us there, right?

That’s why I’m creating this series of events, courses and a community of up and coming growth marketers at PIRATE SKILLS. I want you to have better fighting chance in this competitive world and to have a bigger impact than you are already having.

I believe there is only one way to achieve the level of freedom and impact we want and that’s by improving our entrepreneurial and marketing skills well beyond the average. That is what Pirate Skills is all about.

That's why I want to invite you today to join the founding crew for free. You will get early access and discounts to all the courses we are creating right now.

You can come on board by going to pirateskills.com and letting me know that you want to “Join the crew”.

I would love to see you on board today!

Facebook Data Analytics | PIRATE SKILLS

STARTPLATZ

Facebook Data Analytics | Meetup Get your free ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/facebook-data-analytics-meetup-tickets-64419055128 "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don't know which half." - John Wanamaker [masked]) I bet you know what this feels like as well. You have built your funnel and are trying Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You even pay for promotions, because you are frustrated by the lack of organic engagement on your profiles. You are writing tons of content, but it's unclear which articles result in measurable success. You spend two weeks implementing that new feature, and you are not sure whether or not it was worth it. Let's discuss solutions to this 100-year-old problem for your business in this meetup with the help of analytics tools from Google and Facebook. I want you to leave the room .. slightly shocked because of how much Google and Facebook knows about your users .. and with the know-how about how to track your most important KPIs (key performance indicators): 1. Traffic - Where do users come from and how much did it cost? 2. Engagement - What are users doing on your website/app? 3. Conversions - What's the return-of-investment of your efforts? Some of the talking points of the meetup will be: - Analytics & Growth - Google VS Facebook Analytics - Learning about your audience - Seeing where traffic comes from - Reading user behavior - Setting up goals - Resources for further studying - Q&A If that sounds as exciting to you as to me, join the meetup on October 2nd at Startplatz in Cologne, Germany or via the Facebook Live stream. Agenda: 19:00 - Welcome 19:10 - Keynote by Ben Sufiani 20:10 - Q&A and cases 20:30 - Networking & good drinks See you there, Ben ______________________________________________ Ben Sufiani Captain Pirate Skills m: [masked] a: Im Mediapark 5, 50670 Cologne, Germany w: pirateskills.com e: [masked]

More Traffic with Native Ads | PIRATE SKILLS

STARTPLATZ

More Traffic with Native Ads | Meetup Get your free ticket here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/more-traffic-with-native-ads-meetup-tickets-64422967831 Who doesn't need more qualified traffic? The question is rather where to get it and what you need to give in return. A 1000 visitors to your website can cost you a week worth of social media posts or 1000€ on ads. The choice is ours and we have to learn to be the judge of what brings us the best ROI (return on investment). "All" we have to do is to find traffic channels that attract customers for less than they give us back in revenue .. minus the cost of goods delivered .. minus returns .. minus people .. minus you get the point. If that sounds interesting to you, join us (for free) live in Cologne or through the live stream. I'm astonished how few people have tried this easy to use way of advertising your stories through (paid) recommended articles on high (and low) quality websites like Handelsblatt, Forbes, Wired, etc. I often get a million impressions for about 200€ (yes, CTRs are shitty) and easily fill my retargeting audiences for the more expensive platforms like Google and Facebook. Native advertising platforms like Outbrain and Taboola have become the goto traffic source for many big affiliate marketers since Facebook and Google have become so expensive. Agenda: 19:00 - Welcome 19:10 - Keynote by Ben Sufiani 20:10 - Q&A 20:30 - Networking & good drinks Cheers, Ben ______________________________________________ Ben Sufiani Captain Pirate Skills m: [masked] a: Im Mediapark 5, 50670 Cologne, Germany w: pirateskills.com e: [masked]

How much growth is enough? | PIRATE SKILLS

STARTPLATZ

How much Growth is enough? "Growth for Growth sake" is not the way we role at Pirate Skills. Instead we believe in giving entrepeneurs like you the skills to grow as much as you need to become independent and do what you love. Making growth your only goal is a sure way to become the slave of you business. I want you to become the master of your own growth. For that we need to discuss: How much is enough? Where are you at this moment? How do you get from where you are to where you want to be? In other words: Let's discuss your Growth Roadmap! If that sounds as exciting to you as to me, join the meetup on July 3rd at Startplatz in Cologne, Germany or via the Facebook Live stream. Agenda: 19:00 - Welcome 19:10 - Keynote by Ben Sufiani 20:10 - Q&A and cases 20:30 - Networking & good drinks See you there, Ben ______________________________________________ Ben Sufiani Captain Pirate Skills m: [masked] a: Im Mediapark 5, 50670 Cologne, Germany w: pirateskills.com e: [masked]
