About Savemi Digital Marketing

Over 20 years experience with big brands

Hi there, I’m Jon – nice to emeet you! I have 20+ years experience in marketing and web development. At the height of my corporate career, I was running the US$250M WWE licensed video game globally – based in Los Angeles. I’ve had some amazing experiences that 12 yr old me could only dream of – and for that I am grateful.

I have been working on websites since the late 90’s, with more of a focus since 2010 – with my own ecommerce site. I enjoyed developing the site and learning about ecommerce so much that I decided to upskill in many facets of web and app development:

  • WordPress. We specialise in building and maintaining WordPress sites.
  • Web dev – the nuts and bolts like CSS, HTML, PHP, Javascript
  • Ecommerce – Woocommerce (and its extensive array of plug ins), Shopify, Ebay and Amazon stores
  • Web hosting – we now offer a lightning fast service from Australian servers.
  • Site Security – site hardening, antifaud, DDoS protection (extremely important in the business of selling video game codes!)
  • App development – PWA, Mobile responsiveness – CSS, AMP
  • SEO – Site audit, White hat tactics, link building, long tail keywords. Using tools such as SE Ranking, Keyword planner, Yoast, Market Samurai
  • SEM – Google ad buying
  • Sitespeed – using tools such as GT Metrix, Pagespeed Insights

My background in marketing started in the DIY industry with Orica/Dulux. I then moved into my passion – video games, with THQ. Following success in the Australian office (Winning the inaugural IGEA Marketing Award) I was transferred to the US (LA) office to become the Senior Global Brand Manager for the licensed WWE product. I have a Bachelor of Commerce (Marketing) and Bachelor of Arts (Mandarin) from Deakin University. I also completed further education in Business Administration with Mt Eliza Business School

Social Media Management

Social media was not my forte. So I have brought in Rose Zarucky, who also works with the Carlton Football Club. Rose is a social media guru that has attended the Carlton College of Sport. After completion, Carlton were so impressed with Rose that they gave her a job in the social media department.  Rose helps to look after all of Carlton’s social media channels including match day live updates.

What makes Savemi different?

Our preference is for building upon WordPress and Woocommerce (e-commerce) simply because they have had the world developing for them ever since they have been introduced – and there is a solution for just about everything.

Moreover, when we hand the site over – it is easy for the client to use.

We are Australian (thus English native speaking) and have the work ethic to get the job done and not just leave the client stranded. You get what you pay for.

Save time, Save headaches, Savemi!

I look forward to working with you. Best Regards, Jon.
