Hi, my name is Heike Miller and I have been involved in online marketing since 2008. I am passionate about helping small businesses with their online presence, communications, reputation management, ecommerce, and of course, social media.
I was born in Germany and started my professional life with a three year business training as an Industriekauffrau (loosely translated as Industrial Business Management Assistant).
Twenty years ago I moved to New Zealand and settled first in the Waikato and three years ago I went to Christchurch to join my partner here.
I am passionate about all things small business marketing and with the help of my postgraduate Business and Communication Management and dedicated Internet marketing training with mainly US providers I became specialised in online/digital marketing. Social Media was, of course, a part of online communications and I began offering online marketing services to clients from my home office. In 2009 I got certified as an Online Business Manager, a certification developed by Tina Forsyth and Andrea J. Lee.
I am trained in the full suite of online marketing, from business planning, list building, social media plus the technical bits from shopping cart installation to WordPress web design.
I greatly enjoy helping people with their passion and how to successfully turn it into their online dream business. I also help existing small businesses to add digital marketing into their marketing mix and attract customers from all over the world.
Personally, I love animals in all shape or form. I am the one “responsible” for introducing the German Riding Pony to Australasia by introducing Davidoff by Dressman and Mona by Merafic to New Zealand in 1995. Quickly a “German Riding Pony bug” developed from there and nowadays many dedicated horse studs base their breeding on this type of sport pony as it is versatile in all performance disciplines, fun to ride for many children and teenagers and even big enough for many adult women riders.
I live with my dog, a rescue cat, my partner and his 10 year old son in Christchurch (New Zealand). Clayton is the owner of Electric Motor Repair (EMR), a successful motor repair workshop.
I work with small business owners all over the world virtually (online) with their online marketing and don’t need to be present at the place of their business to help them successfully. The Internet has connected us all beautifully and the world has become a global market place.
