About Me

Your company has a story to tell. But before your business can tell a story you must first research it. You must define the image, identify the audience, create engaging content and then share it with your community through social media. Ultimately you want to engage and influence the audience so that they, and their friends, become part of your story and brand.

I am the storyteller to reach that audience for you.

Cole Burmester

 I am a digital content specialist, founder of Four Jandals Adventure Travel Blog and extremely passionate triathlete.

My passion for storytelling and tourism collided when I began travelling and wearing out my jandals (Kiwi slang for flip-flops) in 2009 to North America. In 2010, I began building the Four Jandals travel blog to highlight all my travels. Since then, Four Jandals has become New Zealand’s leading adventure travel blog with over 20,000 unique readers every month. It has also been recognised as one of the world’s leading travel blogs by Lonely Planet, Huffington Post, National Geographic and the World Travel Market.

Professional Experience and Skills:

  • Content creation through high quality SEO copy for digital marketing.

Web Analytics

To the uninitiated, web analytics can be a confusing mess of numbers, graphs and percentage symbols. But when you know what you are looking at, it can be a very powerful tool.

It can be used to understand and then optimise your website to target a particular audience to increase sales and visitors. I can help you with both off-site and on-site web analytics using Google Analytics. This includes:

  • Google Analytics set up and trouble-shooting.
  • Setting up custom reports.
