Wendy helps small business owners succeed to market their brands online. Originally from the Netherlands, she came to Australia in 1991 to set up the subsidiary of a Japanese technology company and soon decided to make Australia home. She set her first steps into the online marketing world in 2002 when she created an eCommerce site that quickly built a global clientele. She says that “getting that up and running was a steep learning curve with lots of trial and error”. These days things are much easier and online marketing success is within everyone’s reach. Wendy believes that getting the fundamentals right is the key to online marketing success. Through her business, The Inbound Marketing Coach, she works with small businesses and independent professionals.
