I’m Kirsty Sharman,

Lead Growth Hacker

at Rainmakers.

Business Strategy

Experience helping companies find innovative ways to break into new markets. In 2016 I was awarded the title of Top Female Technology Entrepreneur in South Africa, by Microsoft and the Israeli Embassy.

Growth Marketing

I’m hugely passionate about technology and the start-up ecosystem. I spend most of my day building lean growth strategies for our clients, helping them increase user acquisition on average by 70%.

Paid Media

Having co-founded one of the first online media buying agencies in Africa, I have over six years experience guiding clients on how to achieve growth by leveraging Google, Instagram, Facebook and more.

Content Marketing

I have experience running an Influencer Marketing platform, and hundreds of Influencer campaigns for brands across the globe. I also contribute to Socialmedia2Day and HuffingtonPost.

About me

Partner at Rainmakers, with a background in Product Marketing and SaaS. Founded one of the first online media buying agencies in SA, merged with Webfluential in 2015 where I lead growth and operations as the company scaled to over 20 000 users. Passionate about helping other companies do the same!

My Interests

Currently completing a MEAN stack certification through The University Of Hong Kong. Very proud owner of two fat English Bulldogs. Obsessed with collecting action figures from all over the world – which means travelling as much as possible :-)

You have this great product that’s working but how will you 10X it?
