Marketing Diploma

Boston City Campus

I started with my diploma to then eventually get my Degree in Marketing but our daughter died in a car accident and so I stopped studying due to a lack of funds, because we had to use those funds to pay for the funeral.

I would like to apply again this year to complete my diploma and then move onto my Degree in marketing, I believe education is the strongest tool one can use in this world and is something that can never be taken away from you.

Sales Training

I've given Sales Training to all external sales and classifieds reps working for all our 16 publications at Lowveld Media. I've given training at the Standerton Advertiser and I've given national sales training to Caxton sales cadets at Aloe Ridge, which was a huge success.

eMarketing

I was solely responsible for creating the Looklocal marketing plan for the Lowveld. We officially launched 1 July 2011 obtaining the highest ranking within the Looklocal stable (Our stats beating Benoni's stats during the same timeline). I anticipate a rise in stats of more than 250% within the first month of the launch.   The competition aspect of the campaign was also launched where I exclusively obtained sponsorship deals with Vodacom, Jacaranda RM/FM, Damelin Campus, Riverside Mall Nelspruit, Be Visible Creative Studio, Vision 2000 and Puzey Motorcycles all to the value of over R20,000.   I initiated a Viral Marketing Campaign with Damelin students which will be published and uploaded onto You Tube, Facebook and Looklocal and opened to the public for voting from 31 November 2011.   I created an SEO and content management strategy for our websites and PPC campaign during the launch of our Looklocal brand.

Social Media

I managed the Lowvelder Facebook page, Get It Facebook page and the Lowveld Media Twitter account. I have created a You Tube account for when Lowveld Media will start to cover stories live (which should be about mid September 2013).   I managed the sales aspect of WOMF - the blogging platform for a short period before it was taken over on a national basis, where I was able to increase advertising revenue by more than 400% while the advertising budget was under my control.   I managed the Looklocal Lowveld website and the digital billboard in the Lowveld.   I  created and manage the Geanker in Christus Facebook Page since February this year and I have various other clients that contacted me to manage their Facebook pages like Ilanga Mall and Riverside Mall while assisting our congregation with their online presence. I've also been approached by Mad Brand who run the My Players Facebook Marketing (the top rugby players like More Steyn, Bryan Habana etc) to assist with my knowledge and skills
