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.

Our Team

Montaque "Monty" Swanepoel

Managing Director | Co- Founder

Elzaan Nel

Marketing & Admin Assistant

Elzaan is our digital marketing assistant and recent graduate from Red and Yellow creative school of business where she successfully completed a course in Digital Marketing.

She is passionate about helping people smash their marketing ideals and help their businesses grow. Her goals and aspirations are to become an expert in the digital marketing arena.

She is crazy about animals, adores her family – who she can’t live without… (O and coffee!). Her favourite comfort food is pizza and if she could have any superpower it would be a photographic memory (I mean who wants to take notes and study hard if you could just be super intelligent, right?).

Pyxe Tlhowe

Associate Digital Marketer

Pyxe is a BCom Management Marketing graduate who believes in methodical, strategic work and will always ‘Stick to the Plan and Stay Focused’… but is open to exploring new, interesting and creative ways of doing things. 

She is a lover of literature with a passion for writing and is an avid reader. Her ideal day involves a good book, a great view and a strong cup of flavoured tea (…did someone say cranberry?😝)

If travelling was free she’d explore all corners of the globe but for now, her spare time is spent customising clothes or elbows deep in a DIY project while Archer or a true-crime podcast plays in the background.

Corne Aldridge

Associate Digital Marketer

He is a team player that is motivated and goal-driven to achieve their common goal. He believes that you can always learn a valuable lesson from every person you meet. His goal is to continue learning and developing his skill set to be better than yesterday.

He is a sports fanatic when it is playing a quick round of darts with his family or watching rugby with his friends, you will always find him making the most out of any sporting event.

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
