The WebSavvy Story
Thanks for stopping by. We’re digital specialists focussed on your growth and passionate about helping small and medium businesses achieve more with their digital ads.
So we built an agency to do that.
Established in Melbourne in 2006, WebSavvy was founded by Mike Rhodes, a pioneer in the PPC industry and co-author of The Ultimate Guide to Google Ads.
Our team of digital marketing strategists is headed up by Trevor Henselwood (Head of Growth) and Trent Lyons (Head of Client Services) and is made up of creative thinkers and platform experts who have helped hundreds of businesses reach their goals, time after time.
We’re really proud to partner with a range of amazing Aussie and international businesses, including Swimwear Galore, NOBULL, Sheet Society and Kip&Co to name a few.
The digital marketing industry may have changed since we first began (heck – it changes every week, that’s why we love it!), but our values have not. WebSavvy remains an independent agency and every decision we make is based on our values – from how we work, who joins our team and who we work with.
We’re a Google Premier Partner, and recognised among the top 3% of Google Partner agencies in Australia.

The WebSavvy Values
Everything starts with our values. These are what WebSavvy has been built upon, and is the filter that we run all of our decisions through – from who we work with, to who joins our team.

Have fun along the way
We believe a healthy work/life balance is essential – whether you are studying, raising a family or have a side hustle as a budding entrepreneur – we give all our team the flexibility to choose work hours that suit them (as long as it works for our clients too). So if you’re an early bird you may choose to start earlier and finish earlier, or if your mornings are a little bit slower to get started then you can start later and finish later.
We also split our time between working from home, and joining together as a team in our South Yarra office. We love collaborating and connecting as a team and it makes sharing celebratory morning teas and donuts a lot easier when you are in the office together!
No Room for Zoom
Over the past few years we have got a lot more familiar with Zoom meetings than we ever thought we would. So, to provide a little bit of breathing space in everyone’s working week, we encourage a ‘No Room to Zoom’ block on Wednesday afternoons.
Fun & Games
We love any excuse to get the team together and celebrate! We’ve got a rotation of celebrations, along with fun team events where we get a bit too competitive over lawn bowls, axe throwing or trivia…
We introduced ‘Summer Fridays’, to encourage our team to enjoy the sunshine and use that time to do something that makes them feel good. So from Dec-Feb our team generally logs off from around 2pm on Fridays, after client work has been looked after.
Learning & Wellbeing
WebSavvy thrives as a learning hub, and we actively help our team develop their own professional and personal development. In addition to the overflowing ‘WebSavvy Library’ packed with books for anyone to borrow, each WebSavvian receives a generous annual fund to use towards developing their career at WebSavvy.
And learning doesn’t stop at your professional aspirations. Developing and nurturing personal wellbeing is paramount to our team’s happiness. So in addition to the Learning Fund, each WebSavvian also receives an annual Wellbeing Fund to spend on something that contributes positively to their own personal wellbeing.
We aim to make a big impact on our clients, not the environment. As of 2022, we are carbon net-neutral, and have partnered with the Tree Project to off-set our business’ carbon emissions for the last 13 years. We are actively looking at ways we can do more as a team and a business.
Inside our office, our WebSavvy frank green coffee cups encourage the team to go out and experience all the great cafes of South Yarra, without the need for disposable cups. And inside our kitchen you’ll find our recycling hub.
