Consultation sessions are held as online video meetings.  Various dates and times during business hours are available. Session dates and times are available to book via eventbrite.


Book a session and receive an objective audit of your website or ask questions about domains, hosting, different website platforms or analytics.

Alternatively book a session to talk about Google and social media advertising, email marketing or Search Engine Optimisation.

Whether it’s being able to better understand the language and delivery of services provided by professionals or attempting to do-it-yourself, digital marketing is an essential part of being in business today.

The consultation is available to ask those curly questions and help you navigate the plethora of digital marketing options for your business.


Bookings for the one-on-one, one hour consultations with business advisors is via Eventbrite.

Sessions are held using zoom meetings. This allows us to see and hear each other using zoom’s online video meeting technology. We are also able to share screens.
