Where did we come from?
Although the name Clickstarter didn’t come about until late 2016 on the Gold Coast, the work of Clickstarter was being done as far back as 1996 when Dante St James built his first website using Netscape Composer on a Packard Bell 386 computer.
Dante took the concept to the place where he’d spend the largest chunk of his adult life; Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory. It’s where he’d carved our his media career, fallen in love, fallen out of love, changed careers and eaten a few too many laksas.
What exactly is Clickstarter about?
You know how you can buy radio advertising from a radio station and TV advertising from a TV station, but when it comes to buying digital marketing, no one quite knows where to go?
Clickstarter solves this by giving the small businesses of regional Australia up-front pricing, fair deals and a plain English explanation of what this digital marketing thing is all about.
Our idea clients are small and growing businesses in regional, rural and remote parts of Australia – because that’s where we are, and it’s what we know best.
What’s our mission?
Everyday Clickstarter strives to be the first choice for regional Australian small business when it comes to websites, social media management and digital marketing, but cutting through the tech talk, proving upfront pricing and finally making it simple to get business online, marketing online and growing sustainably without spending a fortune.
We will grow towards making Clickstarter as easy to approach for digital marketing as the local newspaper, radio or TV station is today.
What’s our vision?
Through sustainable business growth and staying true to our regional roots, we want to transform regional, rural and remote communities into the new micro hubs of innovation and digital business. We aim to achieve this by:
+ being active in markets that others usually wouldn’t consider
+ actively working with competitors to legitimise and standardise the digital marketing industry which is currently a mess of fragmentation, over-the-top margins and “charge whatever we like” attitudes driven by the unsustainable practices pushed by business and marketing “gurus” who have no skin in our game and no heart for our communities.
+ freely sharing our knowledge, processes, trade secrets and methods with any freelancers, competitors or digital agencies that are like-minded
+ bringing digital skills and workforce-ready micro-credentialing to remote Indigenous youth, the elderly, the disadvantaged and other groups that are under-represented in the digital economy today.
