Established in January 2016, Afriwebs Marketing Agency (Pty) Ltd started with humble beginnings, a great idea & very hard work. This young student established a fully-pledged marketing agency, offering 6 major different services to date, marketing it nationally throughout South Africa & recently receiving requests from abroad.
The essence and core of this quality based company is that all its services that are offered , from web design to the printing of the designing services offered at Afriwebs, the staff do what they must to leave you more then satisfied. The success of Afriwebs Marketing Agency is directly the result of finding a niche market amongst companies in all fields of business.
History – Working 2 jobs for a web design company as a sales consultant by day, aluminium manufacturer by night in Durban, South Africa, Süleyman Ismail Kajee found it difficult to survive on his salary and was on the outlook for an alternative. Being asked to design a flyer for his then employers, a brilliant idea evolved. His employers complimented his designing and some even suggested he designs a few flyers, market it and then sell his designs. Süleyman then asked his former to boss to teach him web design and he refused with comments such as, ” you stammer, stutter and you short, no one will ever take you seriously” ,thereafter Süleyman went back to his desk, got his book, pen and took down every little detail the web designer at the time was doing. The notes took very long to compile and the salary from 2 jobs left Süleyman with R100 spending after all of his expenses.
With an initial outlay of just R75, Süleyman registered his first domain from his bed room on a 2002 computer that had 1998 windows, that same name night within hours the company website was up and running and this was the birth of his company. He believed it was odd for him to do web designing but he loves and to this day, is still very passionate about web design. With no motor vehicle, modern computer or laptop, no financial backing, the challenge to build Afriwebs Marketing Agency (Pty) Ltd began. Süleyman began using his tea and lunch breaks to market and represent his company to owners and workers of surrounding shops. Due to the demand for his services, he decided to quit both of his jobs. It was only at the end of December 2017 that the real vision for Afriwebs Marketing Agency evolved.
A printing division, Africa Printers were established for their first two customers, Joosabs Catering Supplies and Tasck Glass and Aluminium Projects and “printing” started in earnest at his single bedroom . By March 2018 Afriwebs Marketing Agency (Pty) Ltd established agents in Cape Town and Johannesburg and soon after large firms called to outsource Africa Printers . This increased the numbers in production and 2 workers were then employed. The bedroom grew small and a move to a 3 bedroom flat was warranted.
A few months later graphic design services was introduced and companies were crazy to go with Afriwebs Marketing Agency resulting a back log of orders. The year 2018 was earmarked with great increases of services to Cape Town, Johannesburg, Kimberly, Port Elizabeth, Nimibia with Botswana also joining in that year. Afriwebs Marketing Agency now become a household name and any service with this label meant satisfaction, value for money and an innovation in designing.
In mid 2018 also saw Afriwebs Marketing Agency represented at an International Shopify Unite Expo in London which drew a great response and demand for our services in the international market. Since then our services is being used in Botswana and Zambia.
In 2018, Afriwebs Marketing Agency won the FNB Small Business Award.
The company has also embarked on a mission for a new new office that will occupy 4 web designers, 10 sales consultants, 2 reps and 5 additional staff that will meet the requirements of WDSOSA and Google accredited so as to compete and adhere to the international standards. These are our immediate goals and may the Al-Mighty assist us in fulfilling these.
Afriwebs Marketing Agency has now become a house-hold name and any service with this label means quality,value for money and an innovation in designing ensuring a ” unique design.”
