Tonight’s blog post is one I know will come at just the right time for a lot of you! The world of digital marketing is not just about social media. SEO is one of those things that I know a lot of small business owners are aware they need help with, yet most are really unsure of where to start! What I love about Reeva’s business is that her service offering absolutely makes sense – the combination of SEO, Google Adwords, copywriting and social media advertising is going to make a HUGE difference to your businesses’ online presence and will have a tangible impact on your bottom line. Whilst I haven’t met Reeva personally, I have been really impressed with her professionalism and knowledge and just LOVE her blogs – she offers some really simple yet powerful pieces of advice that on their own will make a big difference to your business.

Can you share the story of why you started your business?
I started my digital marketing agency in Perth in 2016 after working in online marketing for over 3 years. I had previously made the jump from being a business analyst to online marketing so combining my love or order and process with the excitement that digital marketing offers is fantastic.
I always wanted to be able to ultimately work for myself and had built up the skills and the knowledge to be able to do so and be successful. I also did it so I could spend more time with my family – I’m loving not having to use vacation care every holiday!
Thanks must be given to my awesome husband who graced me with the Cutting surname – I always knew that if I ever started my own business it would have to be ‘Cutting Edge’ something – I’m just glad it didn’t end up being a hairdresser!
I had also started a blog a couple of years ago, Proudly South African In Perth, which aims to help people looking to migrate to Australia. In the last few months it’s moved towards being another stream of income so it’s great to be able to balance my time between my business and my blog.
Tell us more about the services you offer.
I offer a suite of affordable digital marketing services, including SEO, Google AdWords, content marketing, blogging, social media management and advertising. When it comes to SEO, I love doing SEO for local businesses. Small businesses are my speciality and I make sure that I offer affordable SEO options for small businesses who probably don’t have thousands to spend on optimising their website.
Writing is another passion and with so many businesses knowing they need to have a regularly updated blog, I offer affordable blogging and content marketing.
I’m also looking into offering short workshops on different aspects of digital marketing and the systems that are so crucial like Google Analytics – so many people install it and then never have a clue what they should actually be doing with it!
What’s your favourite part of your job?
I love the fact that every day is different and I get to set my own schedule and hours. If I want to wake up early and get some work done before school drop off, I can.
I also love seeing a client’s website start appearing on the first page of the Google search results, or watching conversions rolling in on AdWords. The buzz you get when that first conversion comes in or their site jumps from not in the top 100 results up to page one is awesome! When my clients are happy, I’m happy!
What’s your #1 tip for those just launching their business?
Just do it! There’ll never be the perfect time and you’ll never have the right amount of money in the bank. You just need to step off the cliff and know that you’ll fly. Also surround yourself with a support network that understands what you do and wants to see you succeed. Having the right people around you is crucial to achieving success.
