I advise companies on how to make the best use of inbound marketing and content marketing techniques.

They may engage me in marketing and sales strategy development, project and process management, as well as training their staff.

Tactical support may include website and social media channel development, content creation

and measurement of reach and impact.

Time-based or results-based consulting can be arranged directly or through my firm, Cluetail Ltd.

What comes with the package

For what it’s worth, here’s my attempt at characterizing what comes with the package in case we were to work together:

Professional. Committed. Transparent. Customer-focused. Results-driven. Inspired by people. Lean, not mean. Networked. International. Clutter and cost conscious. Analytical. Creative. A storyteller.

I’ve worked with small and big companies in the Netherlands and in Finland, including AP Dow Jones News Service and Wegener Arcade in Amsterdam, two years at Talentum in Helsinki and six years at Nokia HQ’s corporate communications team before founding Cluetail in 2009.

The teams that I’ve been part of have received several media innovation awards.

I’m fluent in Dutch, English and German with conversational command of Finnish. I have a strong business network in the Netherlands as well as in Finland and I have been immersed in both markets and cultures.

There is a science and an art to developing a compelling online presence or a successful inbound content marketing and sales practice.

Quantification and data analysis keep us focused on results. On what works and what doesn’t. On doing the right things.

But without thinking out of the box, without experimentation and creativity, nothing will make a brand stand out. Those are the hard-to-quantify ingredients of doing things right.

Finding the balance is a fascinating journey.

With inbound, I feel that everything I’ve done in my 25 years of journalism (intra- and internet concept development, project management, corporate communications and online marketing) is coming together.

Now ain’t that somethin’?


“Jos gets me out of my fads. Gently but tenaciously he forces me to think broadly, set priorities and communicate effectively. As he coaches me in using socal media and digital tools, he always puts quality first: better one good small step than many haphazard ones. That suits me and my craft, making me a better and more influential professional.”
