About Us & Our Story

We eat pizza too, believe it or not.. find out our story below

Ad Ignite is a digital marketing company based in Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa. Ad Ignite was formed through a collection of late dorm room nights, office brainstorming sessions, and meetings between business partners. Through a combination of years of practical experience and knowledge Ad Ignite was created for one reason…

To help business owners grow their business with our online marketing services like SEO, PPC (Pay Per Click), Social Media and Content Creation. Our biggest goal is to add value to each and every client and to be a strategic long term partner that increases sales and online visibility.

We understand the value of your marketing budget. Every ZAR spent contributes to a bigger picture, it’s not just about generating handsome profits. But it’s paying the bills at home, looking after your employees, scaling your business and helping the economy grow. 

Because of this, we’ll manage your budget as if it was our own.

A Note From One of Our Founders

I get to work with the most incredible business owners and it’s an absolute pleasure to wake up everyday to help play a strategic role in their business. 

At Ad Ignite we aren’t perfect (we have our flaws just as each person does) but we definitely try to be the best version of ourselves every morning and deliver our finest work, for ourselves and most importantly our clients. This authenticity, transparency and positive attitude is what we live by and what you can expect from our team.

Our clients (and my bulldog’s slobber… aka “Ben”…) gets me out of bed in the morning, and if it wasn’t for the ongoing trust and support of our clients there would be no Ad Ignite to wake up to.

So to everyone I work with everyday, and to everyone I will have the pleasure to work with going forward, thank you… and let’s crush it together
