On-page Content Optimisation
Google or the other search engines are all about how to give the users the most relevant information they are looking for. Hence, how to optimise your content to match the searcher’s intent is highly important in my job.

What is your proudest professional achievement?
What has been the highlight of working at Digilari?
It’s easy to achieve a working-life balance at Digilari as we don’t have to work on Wednesday. Instead, we work two hours more per the other workdays. The working form at Digilari is also very flexible. As a full timer, I used to work at the office 3 times a week and remotely for one day. But if you have any emergency coming through, it would be totally cool to just work from home sometimes. Lastly, I really enjoy the Cultulari events, where the team get to hang around, have nice food and have some fun time during our off-work times quarterly or semi-annually.
Why did you apply for a role with Digilari? What attracted you to working with our team?
I joined Digilari as an intern and was almost immediately in love with the diversity of the team. We got people from different backgrounds and due to the pirate spirit in our company culture, we get the chance to communicate and express our opinions freely. The company structure is pretty flat so you find it easy to communicate with the business owner about the direction of the company. Most but not last, I like the idea that you can take 2 days of annual leave and get a 5-days holiday (cuz we don’t work on Wednesday!).
Who inspires you?
Lady Gaga. She will always be my biggest inspiration as she always promotes kindness and treats everyone equally regardless of their gender, race, sexuality, and religion. My other inspiration would be Steve Jobs, the best marketer in history. He introduced several technologies to the world that changed society ever since. Moreover, the passion he showed in the presentation of the new products really makes you believe this man’s put everything he got into the products.
Do you have any advice for someone looking to get into marketing?
Just be open-minded and eager for learning as there is new information emerging every day in this industry. Also, it is great to figure out what you are really interested in this field. Even just for digital marketing, it has so much to digest and master including SEO, PPC, SMM, etc. Take some time to find the one you are passionate about.
Do you have any advice for small to medium businesses who are just getting started in their marketing journey?
Build a website. I understand that now a lot of small businesses gain new customers from social media, but do realise that it’s really hard to increase brand awareness just by posting organic content. With a website and proper optimisation, you can gain long-term results without investing in ads constantly. A website is the foundation of most of the digital marketing strategies.
