Hi, I'm Russell Ventura

I create awesome digital marketing solutions

Old school customer service for our digital world

Hi, I’m Russell Ventura 

I have over 25 years technical and customer service experience. I feel the most important point I could make would be that alot of my skills and experience are SELF TAUGHT.

I have taken courses and passed the relevant exams in order to remain up to date and employable, but the over all fact is that I have continually invested in myself in both training and equipment.

MY HISTORY

I have spent alot of time and money investing in myself and gaining my Microsoft and Digital Marketing certifications over the years.

I have spent even more hours reading, experimenting and training myself to become the person I am today.

I have never forgotten my roots and how I felt before I got really involved in technology.

My working life covered the birth of technology as we know it today from the late 1980’s, so I have seen so many amazing technology leaps, and still find it as interesting today as when I started over 25 years ago.

MY VALUES

I feel that the simple way is always the right way, and usually your first thought or idea was the right one.

Keeping it simple is the key to great designs and connecting with your target market.

I Never oversell, or provide services that you do not need.

IF A JOB IS WORTH DOING, IT’S WORTH DOING RIGHT

I LISTEN

I want to know what you like, and what you see that your business needs. Too many designers come in loaded with assumptions.

They try to impose their own style, or steer you towards for a more expensive site. This is your business, your brand, and your site. I’ll ask the right questions, make suggestions and work up a design with you.

Z

I'M PASSIONATE

I’m really passionate about what I do, and that comes through in my work. I only take on projects where I can see a potential to do great work.

It’s more than just another job. When I’m all in, I’m more creative, and the sites reap the benefits.

Z

I'M GOOD AT WHAT I DO

I’ve spent years building my skills and keeping up with best practices in web design and security.

I continue to study as things change. Other designers will just build a site that looks good on the surface, but leaves you open to being hacked. I’ll build you a site that looks great AND stays secure.

Z

I'M HERE

After your site is built, I won’t run away. I offer ongoing maintenance, to make sure your site stays in good shape.

I offer maintenance packages if you think you’ll need regular help, but I’m also up for a quick phone call.

Experience to help you GROW!

I get a real “buzz” when I have helped someone reach their goal and not just do as I recommend, but understand why they have done it. After all, if you want to replicate goal success, you have to understand why and how you achieved it, otherwise, you cannot grow and achieve real success.

I do not have any agenda, I simply love what I do, and helping individuals and businesses both provide me with a sense of achievement and spread the word that technology can be your friend, if someone has the time to explain the concepts and help you grow, and not just about making money.

Now you have taken a few minutes to read about me, and why I do what I do, why not contact me to see if I can help you with your digital marketing goals. You may finally start receiving some benefits and return on the investment you have already paid for, and better still, understand it and be able to manage it yourself.

You can hire me to review your Digital Marketing position, and bring your business up to date so you can benefit from all the digital platforms.

I can either create a full spread of digital marketing platforms or update your existing set ups to provide a consistent high quality look and feel to your on-line presence.

If your Facebook is in a flop, your Twitter is in a tiz, or people yawn at your YouTube, contact me today and we can make a start on making your digital marketing dazzle.
