Bashia Galt holds a Masters Degree in Marketing and Management from University of Commerce in Poland. She is a specialist in Online Marketing, SEO, Marketing Strategy, Social Media and WordPress Web Design. Bashia arrived in South Africa in 2009 following Malcolm Galt, her husband and business partner. Bashia’s professional journey within the Helderberg started from opening and running the 5 star Oceana Palms guesthouse in Gordon’s Bay. The establishment achieved a occupancy rate of 30% and R1.2mln in turnover within its first year of operation. Her marketing strategy and internal systems she implemented worked very well and when it came down to everyday running of the guesthouse and cooking breakfasts, Bashia had moved onto working with The Exporter and ExSolar.
Bashia joined her husband again in 2014 when he started i-Check Data Solutions. She managed to get most of the keywords to show on the first page on Google within 4 weeks. Since then, she was approached by friends and many others to do SEO and web design for them. Now BMG Marketing is a full online marketing service provider.
