We have been in the accommodation industry for 14 years and were considering a 3rd upgrade to our website. We wanted something fresh, special, and search engine friendly. We had heard about Website Silk so approached Ronel for a meeting to discuss our goals. Wow, such enthusiasm, dedication, and a wealth of knowledge. We were impressed from the outset. Well, what a professional journey it was, always with the focus on what would best suit our business model and explaining her reasoning every step of the way. This was not a case of 'Here's your website let me know if you want any changes.' Even once the site was live, we received informative emails containing suggestions on what to monitor and what we could do from our side to ensure a consistent brand. We would, without hesitation, recommend Website Silk for anyone wanting a professionally and thoughtfully designed website with personal service.

We're really over the moon with our new website! It's exciting to be getting queries and we wouldn't have been able to do without Ronel's amazing knowledge of the tourism industry and her technical wisdom to produce a super-fast and efficient website. We've had so many people comment on what a great site it is. We look forward to working with Website Silk again in the future to help us with our broader digital marketing. Thank you, words cannot express how much this has done for our business and we appreciate all the guidance along the way.

Another happy client - Wehan Fourie, Principal of HSH on the West Coast

Ek is die afgelope 6 maande aan Ronél se passie en entoesiasme blootgestel toe sy betrokke geraak het by Hoërskool Hopefield se digitale bemarking (strategie, nuwe omvattende en tweetalige webwerf, opgradering van sosiale media). Dit was 'n ongelooflike voorreg en inspirasie om met iemand van Ronél se kaliber te werk. Ek lig my hoed vir haar professionaliteit, werkywer, haar fyn oog vir detail, haar besondere aanvoeling vir taal en wat die skool se teikenmark wil hê asook haar bereidwilligheid om ure en ure se ekstra myle tot voordeel van ons skool in te sit. Dit was 'n absolute voorreg om saam met haar te werk!

Wehan Fourie - Principal:
Hopefield High School - West Coast

Thank you Ronel for our wonderful (beautiful AND clever) website. Your advice and knowledge as we start our journey in a whole new business world, were priceless. Your background in the hospitality industry were invaluable in this process. You went above and beyond in helping with the right info and image for my specific market and business. I've learned such a lot about digital marketing - it will give our business the edge it needs. I am looking forward to working with you again.

It is the first time someone has taken the time to LISTEN, really listen to what my desires are and my business-heart wants. Ronel's attention to detail is impeccable and unlike any other consultant or advisor; it's as though she just knows and "gets it". What an absolute pleasure it is working with her! Ronel, thank you deeply for all you do.

Very satisfied client - a pleasure to work with you!

Ronel designed my website from scratch and what an amazing & professional job she has done! Being a senior citizen, I was pretty clueless to most of the terminology used in this field, but with Ronel’s guidance and step by step approach, I was quite comfortably transported along a brief journey of excellent service, extraordinary attention to detail & sheer professionalism and commitment from such a delightful person. I'm truly satisfied with the end product and wouldn't hesitate to make use of her expertise in future.

I worked extensively with Ronel for a month on a hand-over project for my online tourism business. I was super impressed with Ronel's knowledge of digital marketing, including website development, SEO optimization, Google AdWords and Social Media integration. She knows how to align the online strategy with the business strategy and how to make money from it. I would highly recommend Ronel to assist any business owner to develop and implement a winning digital strategy for their business.

I worked with Ronel at DeBeers. I highly recommend Ronel for her attention to detail, her passion, her drive and her objectivity. She is so dedicated to achieving her goals, that she is an inspiration to all who know her.   I am honored to have worked with her.

Sean Liesenberg - Senior Systems Analyst:
De Beers (Now New York, Kimberley then)

Employed by me in 1990 to undertake a significant project at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. During this 18 month project, Ronel provided technical & personal leadership and innovation. The quality of work was such that the new solution was implemented on a Fri 13th with no serious flaws. Ronel has since set herself other challenging goals and has met them with her typical flair and aplomb.

It felt strange to me to have to book Website Silk a couple months in advance... Well, it was so worth it! My online shopping website & YouTube channel were developed smoothly and quickly and they were able to accommodate my unique preferences. I especially like the look, clarity and speed of my website. If you need to queue for Website Silk, rest assured it will be worth the wait.

Many thanks for a superb business plan. You truly have the ability to "see inside our heads" and to word things clearly and professionally. You picked up on our vision and passion - a gift not often found! So much more than linguistic crafting. With you, we can cross the Drakensberg barefoot! Hoping for a long association with you, and to use more of your services.

Hanlie & Fanie Vermaak - Owners-Principal - Pharos School; Jeffreys Bay

It is so nice to work with someone who has 'been there' and not to be confronted by an over-eager IT wizard who is out to try and impress you with big words and bad ideas. Ronel makes it very easy for you to get all your processes going (sy kan nogal kwaai wees ook!). Thanks for all so far - we look forward to working with you further on our project.

Another satisfied client - Wendy Leppard of The Space In Between

Website Silk is the answer to those of us with small businesses. I was so nervous of social media and 'put it out there' that I would love someone to 'hold my hand'. In the first inspiring email I received from Ronel, those were her words and the results have been amazing. They created a beautiful FB page for me, and have continued to inspire and encourage me while I'm easing my way into it. My heartfelt Gratitude to you... I appreciate you and highly recommend your service.

Steps to business success anywhere in the area


To help save our clients money (i.e. travel costs), the majority of our business is done remotely, i.e. via Skype, E-mail etc. This saving applies to remote clients as well as those close to us.

It may also be the only way we can fit you in if we are very booked up, due to time taken up by travel; not to mention that it fits in with our low carbon footprint aim. And... we want to help small businesses everywhere to succeed!


We can meet clients in person anywhere along the West Coast / Garden Route route. Where possible we'll come to you to observe your business set-up. For our first appointment, we can also meet in a coffee shop that will suit both parties if you prefer.

Note: We charge travel costs as an extra to keep our standard services affordable.
