About Me

I'm Chris Corbet a Garden Route based digital marketing specialist, video creator & photographer.

I'm Chris Corbet

Providing a content creation and digital marketing service, including Google Ads, YouTube advertising, SEO (search engine optimisation), website design and social media management, mostly in the tourism, tech and real estate spaces. You won't find me in a city centre office with massive overheads, but it's not a one-man show, working remotely with a network of experts I can handle projects of any size, efficiently and at a lower cost.

By being directly involved with every process and drawing on trusted specialists as needed, rather than employing expensive full-time staff, I can keep costs down and maintain personal contact.

Background

I've enjoyed a rewarding digital career spanning over 20 years, initially as founder & CEO of Synergize Digital, one of Africa's most respected digital marketing agencies. Acquired by the Publicis Group in 2013, Synergize was merged with Saatchi & Saatchi, becoming the hub of their global digital marketing offering, with offices in London, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Budapest. I served there as a director until 2016.

In 2018 I launched a boutique digital marketing & design consultancy, Kangela Marketing, geared towards meeting the demands of the mobile age. These days the focus has shifted towards video marketing. With massive growth in video over the past few years, it's my firm belief that it's the future of online marketing.

I also do property & commercial photography, and create professional quality videos. While I'm based in the Garden Route, South Africa, I'm available to travel all over Southern Africa and internationally.

Blog & Video Channel

My other love is to explore off the beaten track places, I run a popular adventure blog which you can see here, and a YouTube channel where I share my adventures in video. Please do head on over and tell me what you think: youtube.com/@Kangela.
