Within South Africa, WSI has a very strong presence, with independently owned offices in Gauteng, Cape Town and Durban. We take special pride in assisting small- to medium-sized enterprises with “taking the next step” in their Internet Marketing Strategy. But we don’t just stop there. WSI has also helped many corporates find their right strategy, meet their goals and more. We’re ready to earn your trust and get you the results you’ve been looking for. It’s not about technical terms or lingo, its about achieving your business goals.

We take pride in helping businesses make the most of the Rands they spend on Digital Marketing, by making sure that we focus not only on the Digital Marketing results, but on the education we give our clients and the overall consultancy we give to each and every client to make sure they understand, value and get the ROI they need to help move their company forward.

We’ve been in business since 1995. A lot’s happened since then. Here’s a timeline of some major events that have occurred along the way:

  • WSI was founded in 1995 in Toronto, Canada as a basic web design company. Back then, the Internet was in its infancy and having a website was a big deal. Things have changed, but we’ve been around for it all: the explosion of the Internet, the advent of Google, the rise of Social Media and the rapid increase of smartphones and tablets. We know and understand the digital landscape because we live in it every day.
  • Mel and Nicholas Gard joined the WSI family in 2009, and we have been operating their office in Kloof as a valued arm of the WSI World. Specialising in SEO, Google Adwords, Marketing Automation and Social Media Management, we pride ourselves on our experience, expertise and focused customer service. We only succeed if our customers succeed.

As the Internet continues to evolve, so does WSI and the digital solutions we offer. What works today might not work a few months down the road, and we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the leading Digital Marketing strategies, solutions and technologies. We started with web design but now offer a full digital marketing suite including site, search, social and mobile solutions.

You may be familiar with the brilliant futurist and big brain behind many of Google’s game-changing ideas – Ray Kurzweil.
