Shift ONE is a Cape Town based digital and online media marketing agency

Welcome to Shift ONE, where Shift Happens


Who are We?

Shift ONE is a through-the-line marketing agency based out of Cape Town South Africa that delivers world class service, creative strategies and marketing campaigns to our clients, both big and small.

One of our specialities is digital marketing or online marketing. We are able to deliver a digital service that has a tangible, measurable effect on your marketing ROI. We are passionate about creating the optimal user experience, which always improves the bottom line.

We are a one-stop-shop so you don’t have to deal with 5 different companies – only one key account manager who will move heaven and earth for you.

Why you will Love us: The Soft Stuff

We are great at the soft stuff, so if you’re into having a great relationship with your agency and working with people who are honest, have integrity, put you first, offer great personal service, who are reasonable, accommodating and make things happen, then you will love working with us!

Plus all the convenience of a one-stop-shop, saving you time and money and more cliché’s of the sort.


Why you will Love us: The Hard Stuff

But we are also all about the hard stuff, so we really focus on work that drives growth through sales, increases your customer loyalty and engagement, builds you brand and differentiates you, converts visitors into customers, and is really nice and easy to use so your customers come back for more.

What we Won’t Do

We won’t promise you something we can’t deliver on. We won’t pretend to be something we’re not.

What we Will Do

We will deliver on our promises, and manage your expectations each step of the way. If we think you’re about to make a mistake, we’ll be honest with you, even if it costs us the job.
