whywalkwhen

why walk when is me, Rob Donkersloot. I provide digital marketing consultancy, management and development services to organisations that have decided that why walk, when they can dance, fly and run! With over 20 years of direct experience in maximising online marketing results for leading Australian organisations, I know I can make a massive contribution to the success of your business.

If you are thinking of building or improving a website, maximising Google Adwords performance, building social media communities or getting the best out of online search, talk to me first. You’ll get no bullshit advice that is almost certain to save you many thousands.

And if what you are promoting is running related, feel free to tap into my specialist running related experience and knowledge. As an event race director, ultra runner and founder of three popular running portal websites, I know better than most what it takes to attract and build running brands and communities online.

ARE YOU SPENDING TOO MUCH ON ADWORDS?

whywalkwhen

The chances are that you are spending too much on Adwords, and that you could achieve similar results spending less. The trick is knowing what is working and what is not. That’s where I come in; I set up systems that fully track offline purchases back to the Adwords ad and target what drives them. Then depending on this data we modify and optimise your Adwords campaigns and  test.

Let’s chat and save you some money.

Mobile Phone Apps are a great way to provide additional resources and services to people you want to get close to. Here’s a good example of an App I developed that features unique functionality providing for the tracking of progress over time, plus reviews of progress by third parties.

After conceptualising the app and defining the requirements, I worked with a large team of developers in Eastern Europe to complete the build. Working with an off shore dev team meant the project budget was around a third the price it would have been if it had been built in Australia. I have worked with many development teams off shore on various projects and am well experienced in selecting the right people to engage.

LET’S BE REALISTIC ABOUT SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION

whywalkwhen I have personally optimised websites so they appear high on page one of Google search results for competitive keywords. This work drives hundreds of thousands of visitors to each of these websites every year. So yes it’s possible to improve website rankings that have a positive effect on your business. The thing to understand is these results take time, sometimes years of work to see a return on the investment involved.

If you’re entertaining engaging someone for SEO, lets have a chat. Be warned though, I’ll be totally frank in regards to setting realistic expectations. One thing not to do is to believe any of the claims made by SEO companies who direct market via email, or on websites like Fiverr. These people can do some terrible damage to your search engine standings that is extremely difficult to recover from.

I have worked for long enough to know I don’t need to work with people I don’t like, so at why walk when, I only deal with good people. Many years ago I asked my good running mate Greg why all runners were nice. He summed it up brilliantly when he said that running takes hard work, and pricks don’t like hard work. So if you want to run with me, you must be nice; if not, keep walking.

In return I promise to be nice also. I won’t make promises or set expectations I can’t keep, and I’ll charge a fair price for my services.

If you want to chat about your business and what it can do online, there is no cost for our first meeting. Shoot me a message by filling in this form, or better still, give me a call on +61 457 149 169.
