Any approach claiming to be for everyone is either broadly general to the point of obviousness, or will lack even close to the necessary nuance needed to adequately provide direction.

Story
Tagline
I am the CEO of Fluence, a marketing agency with a sharp digital edge.
Introduction

I had my first taste of digital marketing in 1995 when I strung together my first few lines of HTML code whilst studying at UWC. In 1998 I was part of a team that pioneered call centre assistance via Instant Messaging and in 2001 I created Yelloworld, the globally deployed custom in-house information platform of MTN.

In 2011 I launched Fluence, a digital marketing agency, with the altruistic agenda of helping businesses use technology better in their sales and marketing endeavours. This includes:

✔ Digital Lead Generation

✔ Digital Brand Management

✔ Social Selling

✔ Online Reputation

✔ Social Media & Websites

✔ Search Engine Marketing


Since inception our agency was able to:

✔ Launch a global mobile handset brand in South Africa using digital marketing only 

✔ Sell millions of rands worth of tickets to events using only social media

✔ Promote and sell out multiple new store openings using only digital tools

✔ Build hundreds of engaged online communities

✔ Teach hundreds of entrepreneurs social media marketing via our Social Media Starter Pack

✔ Develop digital business strategies for mainly brick and mortar businesses

I wrote extensively on social media and digital marketing for Apsogram, Airport Magazine, the 2013 State of Social Media Report and Practical Sign & Digital Graphics magazine. 

I have been invited to speak on social media and digital marketing at AdXpo, Sign Africa, Digital Edge Live, Social Media World Forum and Durban Digital Day.

My family has been supporting Brickfield Food Market since 2002, and I remember that in that year we had two incidents where we found weavels in the cake flour. The supermarket replaced the flour on both ocassions and afer bringing this to the attention of Premier Milling they even sent a rep to my wife to apologise and gave her free samples of their muffin mix. Today, 28 July 2013, was the second time I set foot in their new premises and all I wanted was something baked to have with my afternoon tea. I got to the bakery and there were four people working. An African gentleman that was carting stuff into a big fridge, two African girls working behind a screen and a Muslim lady putting labels on loaves of packaged naan bread. They all ignored me completely. I then went away from the bakery and grabbed 2 big bags and a small packet of Lays off the shelf. I returned to the bakery and stood right in front of the milk tart I wanted, looked at their black forest cake.. and still all 4 of them ignored me. I then though "to hell with this I can spend my money elsewhere" and went to the till with my chips. As I got to the till - about 10 second later - I was positioned directly opposite an aisle through which you could see the bakery counter and there was the same Muslim lady that just ignored me handing a milktart to another Muslim lady. So this makes me wonder.. Does Brickfield Food Market want me to make a noise at their bakery when i get there before their people help me?? Becos 5 minutes later I walked into Le Bake down the road and before I even looked at anything the African lady behind the counter said: "Sawubona.. Celi Ukusiza" (or something that sounded like that). I ended up buying a milktart and some Cape Malay koeksisters.. money that could have been spent at Brickfield Food Market. Not fair.
