We are a digital marketing company that offers solutions designed to create a real impact in your digital marketing strategy. Our company is based in Durbanville, in the Western Cape and we service businesses across South Africa. While our advertising solutions are targeted at the audience of the Western Cape, our web design and SEO offerings are suitable for any business, in any location. Our product portfolio offers solutions that suit any budget and have the flexibility to be tailored into packages designed for maximum impact.

Cape Business Online (Pty) Ltd owes its existence and inception to Rob Haupt, who developed the idea in response to a gap in the market at the time for online advertising. The company is operated under the watchful eyes of business partners and co-owners Rob and Lynn Haupt, supported by creative design teams. The team of designers includes the creative talents of Simoné Werth and Chelsea Woods. Jana Neethling is our copywriter.

Enthusiastic, driven, and innovative, Rob and Lynn have achieved success with Cape Business Online thanks to the culture of “we get it done” and functioning effectively as a team that brings enormous energy to the table. We have a proud reputation for delivery on time and within budget.

The relationships that we cultivate with our clients are professional, yet personal. By being approachable and engaging, the close relationship that develops ensures we have your best interests at heart, continually placing your interests first, ensuring we deliver digital marketing solutions that grow your business and success.

Honesty and Integrity

We are not a digital marketing agency that promises magic or guarantees number 1 placement on Google, purely because with our expert knowledge of search engine technologies, we have come to learn that their algorithms are continually updated without warning to us as web developers. What you will find in us is a team that is commercially astute, driven by customer service and the success of our customers. We remain up to date with search engine developments and make it our goal to aim for the coveted #1 ranking on the keywords offering traffic on the Internet to place your brand before a wider audience.
