The ReachLocal blog is written by a team of online marketing experts, including voices from the ReachLocal team as well as other industry experts.
Lisa-Marie is a resident Jane-of-all-trades with an avid interest in Content and Services Marketing. She currently works as a Sales & Marketing Specialist and Office Manager for ReachLocal Australia and New Zealand, newly heading up blog content. When Lisa-Marie is off the clock, she's still a very busy bee, spending her time performing in musical theatre (*jazz hands*) and teaching English.
Dhwani is a Public Relations and Marketing enthusiast who has a natural knack for creating strong content and strategies. Currently she works as a Marketing and Communications Specialist for ReachLocal Australia and New Zealand, looking after both internal and external communications. When she's not busy promoting our brand, she's actively promoting life on Instagram, making short singing videos, enjoying yum cha, planning getaways and exploring the city's best cafes.
Matt has a strong interest in data and the customer journey, working out a way to tell a story and to build better experiences as a result. He currently works as a Regional Operations Specialist in ReachLocal's Sydney office after moving over from Auckland, NZ (Yes, another Kiwi in Australia...). You'll either find Matt out and about exploring Sydney, or trying to improve his pull-ups in the gym.
Stewart is the Regional Operations Specialist for ReachLocal New Zealand and has been with the company since Oct 2014. He looks after the day to day operation of the business with more spreadsheets and reports than you can shake a stick at. Stewart is the go-to guy for questions about products, processes and systems, and is also the product ambassador for the ReachSEO product suite, creating and defining processes. Originally from London, he lived and worked in Sydney for 5 years and has been happily living in Auckland with his family for the last 9 years.
Damien is the product champion for the Client Centre and ReachEdge products at ReachLocal and has been involved in numerous projects in the APAC region.

Bernadette is the Regional Operations Specialist for ReachLocal Queensland. With her background in Ad Operations, she is the Product Ambassador for the Digital Display suite. When she isn't busy ensuring operations are running smoothly, she spends her time with her nieces and nephews, learning electric guitar or working on her novel.
Isabell is a passionate Marketing Strategist who is driven by helping small and medium businesses succeed online. In her role as Head of Marketing at ReachLocal she is currently leading a dynamic team of digital marketers and graphic designers. Developing integrated strategies and incorporating content and social tactics to deliver online marketing is what Isabell loves and does best. When she's not fearlessly leading the marketing team, you can find her running along Manly Beach, swimming in the ocean and getting excited by spotting sharks.

With over 10 years experience in digital marketing, Aron sees the importance for small businesses to understand the best practice when it comes to marketing and digital strategies. He has a wealth of experience working with SMEs throughout Australia guiding them to business growth as well as improving their digital web presence.

Emma is a talented Graphic Designer and Marketer who designs all internal and external communications for ReachLocal Australia and New Zealand. She also updates and manages our websites, in addition to assisting with other marketing activities. Emma is a passionate volunteer with Orange Sky Laundry. When she's not pulling her hair out over HTML (just kidding!) she's wearing odd socks, bleeding coffee, playing dodgeball and doodling letters.
