David Remmerswaal

Having working as a digital marketer for over 7 years, David has worked with hundreds of Kiwi businesses, from one-man bands, to large organisations and over this time has come to realise that small businesses and service providers, unfortunately, miss out on a huge amount of opportunity online, simply due to not having the time, expertise or budget. His goal at Dimple is to make digital simple and help businesses achieve success online.

David believes that creating an online presence and being found online is just half the battle when it comes to digital marketing. Once you're found, your potential customers also need to want to contact you!
