I’m Nath J
When it comes to marketing in the Whitsundays, I have 12+ years of experience, plus a self-taught web designer who studied SEO for the last five years; I’m now the go-to search engine ranking specialist in the area for local services and tourism companies looking to break travel agent chains. From tourism marketing to social media advertising, OTA API connections and more – you name it, I do it. Plus, I’m even learning to publish ebooks and podcasts now!
But here’s the kicker: if you want me to take you as a client, there’s no room for any local politics, bullshit or negative marketing tactics that hinder our success. I’m a straight talker and have zero tolerance for people that try to manipulate other businesses in the region.
A tourism owner once taught me this important lesson: “If you’re too busy worrying about what others are saying, then you’re not focusing hard enough on our business.” Words to live by!
