Chris VanDirector
Starting the company as a budding entrepreneur at the age of 21 in 2011. Chris started with over 6 years experience in the IT industry and started to see an ‘online’ trend in the types of questions his clients would ask him. His IT role covered everything from support, networking, servers and software development. This technical understanding and required attention to detail has allowed him to get a much deeper grasp on the online marketing world than your typical marketer.

Getting to know Social How To Media

In 2011, Terry Ronan and Chris Van launched an Online Marketing Consultancy firm; Social How To Media. When they met each other, Chris was working for an IT firm that looked after the IT infrastructure in Terry’s sales office.

They saw an opportunity and were one of the first in the local market to jump on it. With a combination of over 25 years of IT, sales and marketing experience between them it was only natural to launch a Social Media Marketing (SMM) company, bringing their separate skill-sets to one world. Over time with hard work and endless training with local and international business leaders, our experience, knowledge and team grew to support Web Design, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Online Advertising, Video Campaigns, Email Campaigns and Business Automation.

The business has moved its head office from Coffs Harbour to the Sunshine Coast, but thanks to technology distance is never an issue for our customers. We’ve worked with clients all over Australia and even a few speckled overseas, across a wide variety of industries; such as Real Estate, Recruitment, Fast Food, Online Business, Health and Fitness, Medical Practices, Professional Services, Pubs, Cafés, Theme Parks, Hotels, Tradies, Internet Service Providers, Clothing Manufactures and many more.

Through consultancy services we help our clients to generate more leads and increase business exposure through website design, social media marketing, paid advertising, improved Google search engine rankings, Youtube video campaigns, automated email and business solutions and much more.

Over the years we’ve culminated our experience and personal training into a number of online educational packages and mentor services to help teach other business owners and entrepreneurs how they can implement and take advantage of online marketing, automate and streamline business operations and ultimately free up time while increasing cash flow.

In late 2014 after sharing his knowledge and experience with the team, Terry moved on to chase a more personally fulfilling path and left Chris at the wheel.
