Gemma Renton

Owner & Founder

I‘ve been a Pay Per Click marketer for several years and when I started Vine Street Digital, my goal was to make it the best PPC agency to work with, and the best PPC agency to work for. I’m extremely proud of the calibre of our specialists, the service we provide, and how we operate with transparency and integrity.

PPC is a passion for me! I’ve been doing it a long time and I love that no two campaigns are the same and that it’s constantly evolving. I enjoy doing PPC campaigns for large brands – they’re usually more complex and it’s a great opportunity to integrate multiple PPC platforms. That being said, I also love to work with small and medium businesses as it allows me to build long-term relationships with the owners.

I’m also proud of the agency we’ve all created here. I used to work for large agencies where high turnover, employee burnout, and over-promising was very common. I started Vine Street Digital to change all that. Here, we don’t overload ourselves with clients, so we can give the best possible service and attention to each one of them. Employees also choose when and where they work. As long as their clients are happy and the results are good, they’re welcome to find the work/life balance to suit them. I believe Vine Street Digital is the best agency to work with, and I also believe it’s the best to work for. Whether you’ve come here as a client or as a future team member, I look forward to showing you what we can offer.

PPC Specialist & Team Manager

Before starting PPC Marketing, I was studying my Bachelor of Business, working in hospitality, and travelling the world in-between. I love to learn new things, so it’s exciting to work with clients in a wide range of industries around the world.

I started my marketing career in a larger agency, however client loads were heavy and I wanted to be able to dedicate more time to each business to produce the best work possible.

Working at Vine Street Digital allows me more time to be analytical with my client’s accounts and implement stronger strategies, as well as the ability to keep up to date with the dynamic digital marketing environment.

Although experienced across all Google Ads & Bing Ads platforms, I have a large interest for interpreting data via Google Analytics, and understanding how users engage on websites. I also enjoy the creative aspect of writing ad copy and creating display ads.

PPC Specialist & Team 2IC

Hi! I started in the world of digital marketing after completing my Bachelor of Business at UQ. I love working agency-side so I can apply different digital strategies to a range of industries and clients.

Initially working for large agencies and managing high client numbers, it was important for me to invest time into developing viable strategies for each client – rather than a one fit campaign approach to all. Vine Street Digital gives me the opportunity to do just that!

PPC advertising gives the right balance of technical data analysis and creativity with my personal favourite channel – Google Ads. I love the measurability of digital advertising and the ability to optimise (almost) instantly to drive long term results. Working remotely has also given me the opportunity to travel more and hire two personal assistants – my dogs.

PPC Specialist

Hi! I’m one of the PPC Specialists here at Vine Street Digital. I specialize in Google Ads, Facebook, LinkedIn, Display, Remarketing & more.

After working in the hustle and bustle of a larger agency, I wanted to move into a position where I could be more dedicated and personalised to each and every client without being overloaded. Vine Street Digital achieves that wonderfully.

I have worked with larger to enterprise size clients as well as smaller businesses. I have always found it more satisfying to work with smaller to medium size businesses. There was always so much red tape with larger sized clients that it became quite frustrating.

I believe communication is the key to understanding, so if you have any questions about how to advertise your business or you just need a fresh perspective – don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself or one of the other Vine Street Digital staff. We’re here to help.

PPC Specialist

Hi! I fell into digital marketing after returning to Australia from overseas travels. I knew I wanted to be a part of this industry and have always had a passion for implementing strategies and watching campaigns grow!

I started my PPC career at a larger agency. After some time, I found that I wasn’t being given enough time on each account to develop consistent and personalised strategies, due to the high volume of clients. Vine Street Digital has given me the opportunity to spend an in-depth amount of time on each client, which has enabled me to grow my PPC skills tenfold.

Working with Google has given me a passion for strategising, processes, and implementation which allows me to manipulate how brands interact with their customers in all-new ways. Vine Street Digital gives me the ability to be creative and flexible within my work environment which makes for a fantastic place to work. I am consistently motivated every day to achieve the best results for my clients.

Working remotely has given me the opportunity to spend more time with family, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and spend more time with my dog. Can’t get any better than that!

PPC Specialist

I have been working in the PPC industry for several years now after graduating from UQ with a degree in Business and Psychology. I love this industry and being a Digital Marketer as it allows me to bring my passion for creativity and data together!

I have worked with hundreds of businesses and have been exposed to many industries through my previous role in a fast-paced, high volume agency. Although it gave me a lot of exposure, I found myself wanting to take my passion to another level.

I love nothing more than connecting with people and working together to formulate effective and meaningful marketing strategies. My speciality is Google Ads, I love whipping up fun and compelling ad copies, designing display ads and getting stuck into all the rich insights.

To top it all off I get to work at this amazing job right in the comfort of my own home, or a beach house, or another city! The flexibility and work-life balance here is so refreshing.

Accounts and Admin Officer

Hi! I’ve been working as an administration assistant for over 10 years. I went to QUT Business School to study accounting. I enjoy the challenges that accounts and administration provides me daily.

I have worked with small and medium sized businesses most of my life whether as a retail assistant or in an administrative roll. The ability to use my education is something I’ve always sought to do, and I’ve found that now with Vine Street Digital.
I love to travel, having gone to Japan several times as well as the US, New Zealand, and Cambodia. I plan to travel more in the future, hoping to go back to Japan a few more times and then expand further across the globe.
Working remotely has allowed me to dedicate more time to things I love; annoying my cat, creating new pieces of art, painting, jewellery making, playing videogames, and re-enactment.

Before embarking on my digital marketing journey, I travelled around the world as an English teacher. I love thinking of creative ways to engage audiences, whether in the classroom or on the internet.

Being passionate about different cultures, I studied a Masters of International Business and started my digital marketing career at an international trade consultancy firm. Working at Vine Street Digital gives me the opportunity to both market to a global audience and work anywhere I want.

Fun fact: I’ve lived in 7 different countries!

Brand & Design Specialist

I worked in customer service roles before studying writing/editing & graphic/web design. I enjoy making things look good and work well!

I love exploring and experiencing different cultures and landscapes. I’ve had the occasional trip overseas and also lived in England and Japan. I studied Japanese at university, just because I loved it and found it to be such an amazing language. I enjoy the ocean, reading, crafts, and playing board/video games.
