“Adversity”: A difficult or unpleasant situation.
Chris’ definition of Adversity:
A Collingwood supporter living in Brisbane.
The above has given Chris a strong ability to develop long lasting relationships (even in the case of AFL related abuse), and perhaps this is the reason that Chris has been appointed as Excite Media’s Production Team Manager.
- Chris is part of the Excite Media team that broke the Guinness World Record for the longest ever game of darts.
- Chris is the founder of the office saying: “a splash of flash”

You’ll probably hear him talking about The Mighty Hawks, his skills as a local Social Netball legend or the latest music he is listening to (ask him about his “5 listen guarantee”).

How did you feel about working with the team at Excite Media?
Excite Media gave a professional front to my small business. They are the only organisation I know that actually deliver when they say they will.
Is there anything that Excite Media could have improved during your project?

Case StudyPetra Data Science
Your homepage is your biggest marketing asset. It’s the first thing customers see and can potentially win (or lose) you new business in a matter of 30 seconds. The problem many businesses have is they put too much information on their homepage. Read the full article…
When designing or upgrading a website it’s important to embed the core aspects of your ‘brand personality’ into your online presence. Branding isn’t just confined to your logo, but is essentially the ‘character’ of your business represented in a visual way. When we talk about your brand story we want to represent your business heart to prospective customers.
Many factors go into deciding where your website ranks in the major search engines, but one that most SEO experts can agree on is that proving your ‘authority’ within a topic is crucial to achieving great rankings. To larger search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, what other people say about you is much more important than what you say about yourself, so having a healthy amount of incoming links pointing to your site gives the search engines a clear picture of authority and relevancy amongst your peers.
