Dane has over four years’ experience in Search Engine Marketing before joining the SiteVisibility Team. Dane grew up in Zimbabwe, before moving to the United Kingdom for university where he studied Sports and Exercise Science BSc (Hons) at the University of Chichester while working part time in digital marketing.
After graduation he moved to Hove and worked at iCrossing in Brighton in the Digital Promotion team within Natural Search. At iCrossing Dane worked on online strategies for well-known brands such as Value Retail, Virgin Atlantic, Barclays, Compare The Market, Speedo and LA Fitness. The job itself covered creating content and events, campaign management all within clients budget control. Planning & communicating bespoke strategies and solutions while building, maintaining client and third party online relationships. This was done through leveraging PR tactics and ideas for the benefit of natural search by analysing SEO related metrics and back link profiles.
Dane chose SiteVisibility for many reasons. The main reason was our 2014 strategy we will be offering clients. Dane felt the need to move to a smaller and personable boutique agency while still being based down by the sea. His favourite thing about digital marketing is the nature of the industry. This dynamic industry lends itself to creative thinking and finding cutting edge approaches which are scalable for campaigns.
In his free time, Dane attends the gym regularly and often partakes in outdoor activities like charity skydiving. In addition, he has combined his passion for sport with the digital world by creating his own Fitness Blog (Fitness Fan.co.uk).
