Hi, I'm Tim.

Hi, I'm Tim.

I create content for SaaS businesses. Especially for E-commerce tools.

But I don’t stop when the content is finished. 

It’s called content-marketing for a reason.

I also create content-marketing strategies and execute them.

If you’re looking for:

  • Evergreen content that will work now and in 5+ years,
  • Content that your users share and talk about,
  • A Faster-than-SEO-Traffic-Approach,
  • A Lead-Generation machine,
 

you’re in the right place.


Yep, I’m good at the things above. But I’m semi-good at marketing myself. So I let others do the talk now…

Nice words from people I've worked with:

Andrew Roach, Creator Marketing Manager at TikTok saying Tim Kock's content is super informative and super valuable.

Talking about things I did in the past…

A selection of my work:

Here’s some of the content I created:

 

Case Study for Oberlo

 

Another Case Study for Oberlo

 

Ebook for Shopify

 

Behind the Scenes Story for Sumo

 

4K-Webinar for Shopify 

 

Ebook for Oberlo

 

I often work as a ghostwriter so I can’t share everything.

 

I’m also one of worldwide only 30 official Shopify Education Partners.

 

^ My official Education Partner course is one of the best-rated German Shopify courses on Udemy.

Why I focus so heavily on Shopify apps:

I use to be a Shopify store owner myself.

 

It started as a side-hustle in 2016 (I had a usual 9-5 back then).

 

I sold matcha tea.

 

I didn’t have any marketing budget for ads and – to be honest – was afraid of the complex Facebook ad machine.

 

So I started to learn content marketing to drive traffic to my store.

 

It worked.

 

My first YouTube video (uploaded in 2016) is still #3 on YouTube for major keywords (with buying intent).

Years later, I had several online stores running at the same time. The #1 traffic method was always content marketing.

 

It took me a little bit to realize that I wasn’t THAT passionate about running my own e-commerce stores anymore.

 

It was the process of creating content that kept me up at 4 am.

 

I sold some stores and threw others in the trash. 

 

It was very, very clear for me what I wanted to do next: use my own experience and create content for other store owners.

 

To find some potential clients, I joined Shopify’s official Facebook group.

 

I did a post… and another, and another… and boy, semi-handsome Tim became a rockstar!

To my surprise, people actually loved what I was doing.

Funny enough, my first client wasn’t one of the people who liked my content.

It was Shopify. They liked my work even more.

The result was a little ebook that Shopify used in their email funnel to prove that Shopify is the real deal and it’s possible to build a profitable business without spending money on ads.

It was at the time when Oberlo was acquired by Shopify, when I was invited to Oberlo’s office in Berlin to meet with the Co-founder of Oberlo Tomas and the (at that time) Director of Communications Mark.

The result of this meeting was an in-depth case study about starting a Shopify store with the help of Oberlo.

 

It also set the foundation of my whole content career and I will be forever grateful for this opportunity given by Tomas and Mark.

Whats next?

More content.

 

In my humble opinion, the world lacks great content.

 

And I give my absolute best trying to contribute content that’s not just written for search engines (this won’t work though).

 

But let’s be honest.

 

Content needs tech.

 

I don’t write novels, poems, or motivational blog posts.

 

I only cover topics that teach people how to properly use cool software (that’s your app!) so they can achieve their goals.

 

Don’t get me wrong: I don’t create boring documentation or tutorials.

 

I tell a story that people can relate to.

 

I was a Shopify store owner myself. I felt the same fears and had the same dreams as your desired audience.

 

People say “try to put yourself in the shoes of your target audience”. 

 

Well, I don’t need to try that. It comes naturally to me.

 

If you have a cool app and want to talk about content marketing, you can reach out to me here or simply book a call here.

 

If you want to see how I work, read this article. I explain how I come up with content ideas, how I write content, and – most and foremost – how I promote my content without spending any penny. This article might make jobless soon.

 

Have a blast,

Tim
