We’re a technology company that has some talented individuals; each plays a huge role in bringing our tech, service, brand and vision to life. Our regular monthly feature aims to introduce you to some of the great people at Webfluential.
Today we’re featuring our master designer, who produces all the incredible imagery and graphics here at #TeamWebfluential. Meet Marnus!
Hi Marnus, tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, I like to think of myself as an ‘inspiration hunter’. A true believer that creativity sparks an experience, I try to experience as much as possible out of life. I do that simply by making sure I put the right foot out the front door and by not being scared of what waits for me on the other side.
What inspired you to work with #TeamWebfluential?
From a general point of view, what inspired me to become a designer was being surrounded by other creatives and seeing their different stories bloom. To use a Webfluential-related analogy, being influential on a level much bigger than yourself and seeing the reach it has on a global spectrum just shows you how creative ideas can change people’s way of thinking.
What’s the one thing you want to tick off your achievements list in the next five years?
I want to inspire the next generation with what I do, which in turn could hopefully see more creative influence being pumped back into the world.
If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be and what would you order?
Three people… I would definitely have a great time getting to know Magnus Walker, Steve Jobs and perhaps Robin Sharma. Mixing it up with a visionary, a creative and not being scared to go with my gut around a glass of whiskey and a braai would be great.

10,000 hours to master a subject. 10,000 steps per day to maintain a healthy life. 10,000 influencers to illustrate credibility in the influencer marketing industry.
When we started Webfluential, we wanted to build a data driven business, built for influencers to help them market and monetize their passion for content. To have the best data on hand to inform the statistical models that run over every bit of content our influencers create, we needed to build the trust and credibility with them to sign up, link their channels, and allow us to set the wheels of brand and influencer engagement in motion.
Today we celebrate 10,000 authenticated influencers on Webfluential. 10,000 people that trust us as their partners to work with them in growing their commercial capabilities by working effectively and transparently with brands to engage with audiences across the world. A big thank you must go out to the four principal drivers of our business – our staff, our influencers, our clients and our shareholders, without you, we’d never have grown the innovative and exciting business we have over the past three years.
We can certainly commit to our network of influencers, who now reach a combined audience of 380 million people globally, that we’ll continue to offer you the products, education and support required to establish your talent for content creation into an exciting new business.
Thank you for the road you’ve all walked with us. We look forward to the coming chapters with you!

Today we’re featuring one of our sales rockstars here on #TeamWebfluential. Meet our Junior Sales Rep, Ayanda!
Hi Ayanda! Tell us a little about yourself.
First and foremost, I am a child of God. I’m also a bit of a drama queen, a newborn health freak and gym junkie, a family-over-everything kind of person, and a traveller at heart who has a massive phobia for cats. Overall, I’m a lover of life!
What inspired you to come work with #TeamWebfluential?
I’m a brand fanatic. I enjoy building and moulding brands to make them top of mind for consumers. Webfluential stood out for me because it’s a fun environment and an appealing business model. What makes Webfluential unique is how it tells different stories through real people. For me, that’s a brilliant concept. I also wanted to learn more about influencer marketing and how it contributes to the marketing mix as a whole.
What’s the one thing you want to tick off your achievements list in the next 5 years?
*Moment of silence* I never think that far! Plans have a way of reformatting every now and then. I rather think short-term. I will have my Masters Degree in Brand Intelligence in 5 years, that’s for sure.
If you could have dinner with any three people in the world, who would they be and what would you order?
I’d first want to know who’s making dinner and what their speciality is. Otherwise, if it’s a regular menu, then mixed seafood pasta or a prawn curry makes my belly happy.
