The humble beginnings of Viewpoint Digital Media…
Viewpoint Digital Media is a digital marketing agency and the brainchild of husband-and-wife team, Greg, and Dominique, based in the beautiful Ocean Grove in Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula. (Ocean Grove is about 30min from Geelong if you’re not from around here.)
We offer digital media services including search engine optimisation (SEO), pay per click (also known as Google Ads), social media ads, social media management, content writing as well as videography, photography, website design and development plus graphic design.
Greg and Dominique discovered early on that many businesses needed more than just basic digital marketing. So, they built a team of experts to support every client in this ever-growing digital landscape space.
So how did we get here?
The love story…
It all started in a beer-soaked St Kilda bar, managed by Greg and frequented by Dominique and her workmates as their post-shift watering hole of choice. Greg’s poor attempts at bottle flaring caught Dominique’s eye and it was game over for their bachelor/ette lifestyles.
Fast-forward a dozen years, a wedding, a home, a beautiful daughter, an energetic dog, a few (questionable) hairstyles and our happy little family was now living in Melbourne’s West. Dominique was running a successful digital marketing, web development and hosting business with her brother. Her focus being on getting businesses noticed and attracting attention using her skills in “black magic” – AKA Search Engine Optimisation, Pay Per Click advertising and Social Media management – for clients in various fields and services across the country.
Meanwhile, Greg was working as a videographer, photographer and writer for a sports travel company in Melbourne. His work taking him across Australia and the globe to film and photograph amazing events ranging from the Rugby World Cup to the Australian Open to the Isle of Man TT. On top of this, Greg was working to further hone his craft, moonlighting as a camera operator for Handmade Films Australia under the mentorship of award-winning filmmaker, Peter Lamont.
But it was time for a change, a new start. Greg and Dominique had dreamt about living the coastal lifestyle for about as long as they had been together. But it was a long-term plan, maybe something they could achieve in the next 10 years. Then one day, they asked themselves, “What’s stopping us from doing it now? Neither of us have to be in Melbourne to continue our careers. In fact, we could each work just about anywhere!”. So, in what felt like the space of a couple of weeks, they sold their first home, packed up their lives and moved to Ocean Grove, their favourite seaside town.
Over the following months, Greg and Dominique slowly started to put their plans in motion to create their own business, combining their crafts into a single digital marketing and media service. Kicking it off from their Ocean Grove kitchen table in November 2017 to renting an office with 9 staff members in tow now, Dominique and Greg’s infectious enthusiasm for helping local Geelong and Bellarine businesses achieve online success is spreading.
