About Us

Business Assist was founded in 1995 by current Managing Director Steve Foura. Business Assist is a boutique digital marketing agency that specialises in delivering fully customised digital marketing solutions that deliver a great Return on Investment.

As a small team with over 25 years of experience, we have a transparent and pro-active approach in working with each of our clients to ensure their needs and requirements are met every step of the way. Our experience is vast across almost all business verticals, spanning across Australia and the United Kingdom to provide our clients the best ROI and online growth for their business.

Our positioning statement “Digital Marketing Results” reflects one of the core values of Business Assist. We don’t focus our SEO efforts on ranking improvements – we focus on increasing organic traffic and increasing leads/sales. We don’t focus our Google Ads efforts on high click through rates and a low cost per click – we focus our efforts on reducing the cost per lead/cost per sale. Our Facebook Ads campaigns are focused and optimised based on driving down the cost per conversion. And when we are designing and developing a new website, we always ensure that we are focused on user experience and customer journey to maximise conversions.
