Our story

The Gorilla tribe was formed way back in 2011. Nathan and Scott both quit their marketing management jobs and stopped working the corporate 9-5.

Specifically, Gorilla started out as a digital web design agency. The guys worked with a bunch of businesses in the Newcastle area, before specialising in SEO and Google advertising. Google was really starting to take over the online world, and Gorilla became one of Australia’s most trusted agencies as businesses started to understand the need to build traffic to their websites with search engine marketing.

Over the years, the tribe has continued to expand and evolve along with the industry and Google’s ever-changing algorithm. In 2015, Gorilla SEO became Gorilla 360. Our focus is still 100% helping our clients get more customers and sales via their website - but we’ve added some extra weapons to our armoury to help achieve it. We now help clients dominate their online niche with a more holistic digital marketing strategy.

'Why Gorilla 360?'

First, the 360

Well, this is what happens when digital marketing nerds try to do symbolism. And no, we’re not another one of those agencies pretending to be a one-stop-360-degree-shop. It’s the cyclical thing. We’re all about the long term you see.

We don't do ad hoc jobs. We do strategic, continuous programs.  We build audiences and turn them into repeat, loyal customers. Our gorillas make sure your marketing investment turns into valuable business assets that keep on delivering a compounding customer return.

You see what we did? 

The flywheel, the snowball effect, pushing a large spherical item down a hill… Whatever metaphor you like, lots of strategic effort at the start brings you constantly increasing momentum.

Next, why Gorilla?

Well, because gorillas are awesome… Yup, that’s pretty much it.
