We’re not normal.
We think listening is more important than talking.
Actions speak louder than words (except on the internet).
We love strategy and big ideas, but we’re also practical.
Data is sexy.
To bore is to die.
Perfection is elusive, but worth striving for every day.
Bad communication is our enemy. Poor service, our poison.
Everything is a learning opportunity.
There is only one shortcut: the wisdom of experience.
We never forget the value of a customer.
We’re curious. We’re restless.
And we won’t stop until we get results.
We are WebBuzz, the growth marketing agency.
How we do it
We reject the traditional digital agency/client mindset. Instead, we aim to foster an environment of genuine collaboration with businesses seeking a trusted partner for online growth.
Unlike many other digital agencies, we enjoy educating clients on how online marketing works. We’ll mentor clients and share online marketing knowledge as part of the journey together.
Creativity is in our DNA – literally. The directors share a creative partnership stretching back 20 years (be sure to ask them about songs they got played on the radio and their U.K tour).
We use data for pretty much everything. Our spouses hate it, but you’ll love it! From monitoring campaigns, A/B testing, to validating ideas and assessing results, data informs all key decision-making.
We love a good ‘white paper’. Research of industry verticals is the key to effective ‘customer profiling’. We develop strategies based on facts, not guesswork.
Our clients enjoy detailed, transparent analytics and reporting delivered in accessible language.
We believe in ‘accountable account managers’. You’ll find us to be responsive and relatable people who know their stuff, and who really care about your business.
At Webbuzz, we only hire awesome people. We also have access to a deep pool of highly talented contractors who can get even the most challenging job done.
Webbuzz people have endless curiousity and a nagging drive to always seek a better way to do things. We’re all over it when it comes to the latest tech, trends & digital tools!
We don’t take on jobs just for the hell of it. We only work on projects that we’re genuinely excited about – it’s part of our ‘secret sauce’ that drives us to go the extra mile for clients.

Say hello to your 'growth marketing' team
His career began with corporate roles in Westpac, Challenger and Royal & Sun Alliance before launching his first business, Seniors First, in 2006. Darren got into digital marketing early, and quickly grew the Seniors First business online to such an extent that the site out-ranked the big banks on Google for target keywords. Since then, Seniors First has enjoyed thousands of ‘free’ internet leads and today remains one of the leading equity release finance brokers in Australia.
In 2012, with co-founder and friend of 20 years Ben Carew, Darren built and launched a tech start-up called Housenet. In 2013 the project was awarded as one of the top 100 Innovations in Australia in the Smart 100 Index.
By 2013, business associates were increasingly approaching Darren to help grow their business online too. This led to the formation of Webbuzz, The Growth Marketing Agency, with director Ben.
In recent years the reputation of Webbuzz as a leading digital agency has grown, as Darren's focus on digital strategy and content marketing continues to increase sales and profits for clients from a diverse range of industries.
Ben graduated from UWS in 1997 with Bachelor of Communication and a few years later founded Illegal Design, a boutique Sydney-based graphic design and web development business. Ben’s work has attracted prominent clients from government, private enterprise and academia and Illegal continue to work with select clients to this day.
Ben later completed post-graduate studies in design at the University of Technology, and in 2012 he co-founded Housenet with Darren Moffatt. This award-winning social networking site challenged Ben to develop new capabilities in user experience (UX) and conversion which are now central to the success WebBuzz clients enjoy.
