Hello, my name is Jo Martin and I’m a Website Designer, Social Media Business Page Creator and Computer Teacher.
It’s my focus and passion to help small businesses and start-ups get an effective online presence and learn how to use the computer!
I love to help them market their business and gain exposure to prospective customers!
Growing up in Auckland, New Zealand and the daughter of a very successful Stockbroker, I learnt early about business and investments.
Having received relevant qualifications and training, I was working in the Banking Industry at the time, where at aged 19, I had made enough money from various investments to buy a house in Auckland that I paid a mere pittance for, compared to today’s market. (I never should have sold that house, lol).
Jump forward a few years to when I did some computer courses in Microsoft programs, my trainer was so impressed with how I picked up the training, that I was asked if I was interested in becoming a computer trainer myself.
So I did some more training and began my career as a Computer Teacher, contracted to train their clients into the workforce and also teaching privately, which I still do today.
I decided that I needed to promote my business as a Computer Teacher and set about doing further courses online in Website Design and Social Media Marketing and created myself a Website and Facebook business page. I later added Google+ and LinkedIn, as I realised that Social Media Marketing had a bigger impact on marketing my business than what I had at first realised!
As people saw what I had done, they liked it so much and were so impressed by it, that they asked me to create Websites and Social Media Pages such as Facebook Business Pages, for them.
That is how my career in Web Design and Social Media Marketing began and alongside my Computer Lessons, I have loved and enjoyed creating them ever since!
I continue to train, learn and gain more experience, in order to keep up with the ever changing world of marketing via the internet.
I’m working within my passion, and I love what I do!

Warmest Wishes, Jo Martin
