What I’m all about

My Background

Hi, I’m Les Blythe, Founder and Owner of Les Blythe Digital Marketing.

I provide a range of writing and digital marketing services to tech companies and startups.

Briefly, here’s how I came to be in this business:

I come from an IT background and worked for IBM, Fujitsu, and Xerox in the UK. I spent my time in Sales & Marketing roles as a customer-facing Account Manager/Director.

I was still employed by IBM (UK) when I visited South Africa on vacation. I liked the place so much I decided to stay – the rest, as they say, is history.

Philosophy and Mission

I founded Les Blythe Digital Marketing in 2011 and, with my IT background and experience, it was natural for me to focus on helping IT and tech companies market themselves effectively.

I’d noticed most marketing companies were generalists and lacked specific IT and tech skills – a huge gap in the market.

My mission is straightforward.

To deliver an exceptional service, with a genuine commitment to the success of your business, and a positive “can do” attitude that ensures I become your trusted, go-to digital partner.

Faultless communication, transparent reporting of results, and a real interest in helping you reach your business goals underpin everything I do.

I always set your expectations realistically, without hype, and never make promises I can’t keep.
