Yes, we aren’t your typical digital marketing… and yes, we want to propel your brand into the limelight, but those things are obvious… What is it about Arrive Online that makes us so different that you’re going to want to jump into bed with us after our first date? (metaphorically of course 😉)

We are a bunch of visionaries who love digital so much that if you put your brand in our hands, your little black book is going to be so full you’re not going to know whether you’re coming or going. We loved digital before it was born and it truly had us from Hello. Before there was an industry full of buzzwords and connections, we were playing in the digital landscape, and playing hard. It all started with speed dating, and how to effectively market the phenomena of online dating to a very shy market who hadn’t even fully bought into the beauty of online. By pioneering different ways to market online, and using the unheard-of tactics of marketing across the budding social media platforms, we built a database, and boy was it a good one! It was so good in fact, that other companies started coming to us for advice and the rest is history… Arrive Online was born.

We are all rebels by nature, we don’t play by the rules and we definitely don’t do things the way we are expected to do them. We think on the fly and we make decisions based on feelings… We let our hearts lead the way and we are driven by lust… So naturally we apply all of this to our marketing thinking.

Is your brand looking for love? Then let us market it for you the only way we know how… From our hearts.


Unlike some online dating profiles, we aren’t all talk… You’re not going to be disappointed when you meet us and here are some reasons why…

We achieved a top trending video on Youtube on its first weekend for a South African RnB single, it featured right below a Calvin Harris song that was released the same weekend and it remained in the top 50 trending music videos for 12 weeks.

We have created multiple trending videos on YouTube which include music videos, brand videos and vlogs.

We handle multiple influencer campaigns with trending hashtags across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Our event marketing via social media has led to many fully booked events and created a demand for more events like that.

We have created pre-announcement campaigns for event launches that have led to trending hashtags that have left people talking long after the event is over.

What can we say, we unashamedly love the limelight…


Once we are in a relationship, we are loyal to the end… We are like love sick puppies and nothing is too much to ask of us. We know that each relationship is different and requires attention in different areas. This is how we manage to keep the love alive:

Public & Political figures

The celebrities and political figures we represent are number one and increasing awareness of their current projects is non negotiable.

We figure out who loves them and why, and then we keep them engaged. Top influencers are key, we will find and identify them.

Privacy is king! We are secret keepers to the end. We always protect their information and our crisis management skills are finely tuned.

We immerse ourselves in them – their tone, character, voice… we become our clients and we interact as them. Authentic engagement in real time.

We can do the same for your business with a firm focus on driving brand awareness, product sales, service contracts and more!


Love don’t come cheap… we all know this, but when Serena Constance Grobler bought South Africa’s very first online dating agency in 2007, she wanted to market it as widely and as cheaply as possible. As a digital trailblazer Serena really believed in the power of online marketing and threw herself completely into making sure that FastDate dominated the online landscape.

Within 6 months her tenacity paid off – big time. Her online presence was so strong that she dropped all traditional marketing platforms such as radio ads, street pole ads, and adverts in high end magazines, and relied solely on social media platforms and website optimisation – an unheard-of tactic in South Africa.

From there the rest is history, the golden couple – Serena and online marketing – grew from strength to strength, and eventually Serena started working with celebrities, musicians and political figures. Her objective was not only to run their social media, but to create awareness for their specific campaigns, sell their products and create direct engagement from their followers. From there it was only natural that Serena move from the owner of FastDate, after 8 record breaking years, to the owner of Arrive Online in 2014 – A company born from passion and a solid understanding of digital, grounded in the creation of extremely visible marketing strategies and forever propelled forward by the need to achieve more in this ever-changing digital landscape.



Is your brand a social butterfly? You have to get out there if you want to make connections – Let’s face it, nobody ever fell in love by hiding away. We take your brand, give it a personality and dress it up for the prom. We aren’t shy, we engage and when we get a response, we start a conversation. Your brand has a voice and we want it to be heard. Let us start those conversations for you and convert your audiences’ feelings of love for your brand into a full-blown relationship.


As much as we all try and pretend that personality is more important than looks, we all know that attraction starts with what the eye can see. Your website is your brands’ chance to turn heads and make web traffic stop, wolf whistle and ask for your number. Website design is one of the most essential tools in today’s new market place and if a connection is not made instantly your chance of conversion drops dramatically. Our website design team has extraordinary talent and is passionate about your vision and getting results.


You wouldn’t go out on a date in your tracksuit, now would you? Graphic design, to us, means making your brand look hot, to create a connection with your audience and grab some attention. You need to visually stand out and creative thinking and design is at the forefront of everything we do. We constantly adapt to changing trends to make sure we stay ahead of the curve and tell your visual story, unforgettably.


Although attraction starts with what the eye can see, the right words can also woo even the toughest audience. Make sure you don’t send mixed messages and let us handle your website content, blogs, social profiles and social community management. We entrench ourselves in your brand personality and make sure that all communication reflects your unique style and tone. We can also handle your more corporate content needs such as proposal writing, proofreading and company profiles.



We know that sometimes the actual person is nothing like their dating profile, so instead of being all big talk, we want to show you who we are and what we do. Take a look at some of our work here and if you still want to take us out to dinner let us know.
