Danielle - VP Marketing
BA - Okanagan College / UBC-O
Danielle has grown up with the Internet, technology and GetOn.com Marketing. She has been officially working at the Company as an Internet Marketing Consultant and Project Manager since 2008 and is fantastic at ensuring all ends are tied, no steps are missed and clients are fully satisfied. She knows where everyone is at, where everything is and can help you find what you are looking for in seconds.
She knows the answers to "What the heck is SEO?" and "So, how much is this going to cost me?" because she gets asked those questions on a daily basis. Her answer is simple. The rewards from an awesome website, the growth in traffic and conversions, and the increases that come as website ranking and traffic increases is well worth the cost. In other words, "what will it cost you if you don't do it?". She loves educating clients on SEO, Social Marketing and general Internet Marketing and enjoys helping to demystify the Industry and translate the technical jargon into English.
She's a good multitasker. She can do a lot of everything (at the same time!) but still manages to do it all really, really well. Ask her to stand on one foot, pat her head and rub her belly, and you will see what we mean!
Danielle enjoys supporting her two favourite organizations, Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan and Little Women for Little Women in Afghanistan, where she sits on the board of directors. She recently made the big switch from Blackberry to iPhone and is now a happy iPhone user for life. Catch her on her offtime and you will find her playing games on her phone, doing Yoga or planning her travels. Her favorite websites are WhoWhatWear.com and Searchenginenews.com.
Don't tell her we're telling you this but her 'real/guilty pleasure' favorite website is PerezHilton.com!
Internet Marketing Division
Anita - Senior Internet Marketing Consultant
Business Diploma Majoring in Marketing - Too many years of experience!
Anita is an SEO-purist. She's been providing Search Engine Optimization and Internet Marketing services since 2000 and knows what works and what doesn't. She ensures that every Internet Marketing Plan incorporates good-old-fashioned SEO. But she's not afraid of new technology either. In fact, she keeps her Internet-savvy team on their toes because she's constantly reading (and sharing) industry-specific articles so that everyone stays up-to-date in this ever-changing industry.
Anita likes to dig. She'll dig through statistics, logs, sitemaps, code, content, search results, her garden, you name it. And it is all in an effort to help clients reach their Internet Marketing goals.
Anita understands that Internet Marketing is ever-changing and requires many complex tasks. The industry is plagued by misinformation, exaggerations and statistics based on USA markets, which is widely different from Canadian Internet Marketing. She finds it so rewarding to work with loyal clients as they patiently wait for our methods and recommendations to take their full effect, and then realizing monthly increases in qualified website traffic and conversions.
Anita loves making something out of nothing. She enjoys restoring old furniture and working on home improvements both inside and out. She loves plants and flowers, especially wild flowers. She has a great appreciation for the beauty of nature and experiences the healing affects of nature during her daily walks through her neighbourhood. She enjoys spending time with her daughter, Kaitlyn and loves to watch her play soccer and to support her in her education and daily activities.
Michelle - Internet Marketing Consultant / Website Copywriter
B.A. / Advanced SEO Certification / Journalism Certificate
The first time Michelle went online was in 1996. She was helping a company write content for their website before she even really knew what a website was. Oh how the Internet has changed!
She fully embraces the growth of the Internet, loves new technology and believes in the power of social media. But she hasn't forgotten her roots. She firmly believes in good content that is regularly updated. And good keywords. And well-written TDKs. And good headings. And good taglines. And good calls to action. She encourages clients to take advantage of new technology applications that will help their business generate qualified traffic, leads and conversions but makes sure that the tried-and-true standards of good SEO are not lost along the way.
Michelle has been working in the Internet industry since 2000 and has been a part of the GetOn.com team since 2005. Her favorite part of the job is brainstorming with her co-workers and then watching as our methods, plans and actions result in improved traffic and conversions for our clients.
When Michelle's not working she's likely driving her kids to various activities, reading, writing, catching up on television, spending time with her family, walking the dog and traveling to sunny destinations. She's an iPhone user and plays Angry Birds, Shazams songs on the radio, and searches for local businesses on her phone at least once a day.
Her dirty little secret is that for all the technology at her fingertips (computer, laptop, netbook, iPhone, iPad, Kindle) she still loves the feeling of pen on paper ...

Ken - Systems Administrator
Ken keeps our family of computers, networks and websites up and running. He has 15 years of Advanced Networking experience and is basically, well ... he's our office Hero or God if you will. He's a pinch hitter. In other words, he's the one we/you call when you need help in a pinch. It goes without saying that the questions he's asked most are "What's my password?" and "Help! My email isn't working. Can you fix it?"
Ken enjoys staying up to date with all the latest and greatest computer systems and applications. While Ken is more than fluent in Windows and PCs, he's a Mac-guy at heart.
