Meet Debbie

I was born and grew up in Victoria, BC. In my 20's I moved to Vancouver as a single person to experience fun and the nightlife. I began my path to marketing, starting in the hospitality industry, Hotel & Restaurants, Nightclub management. Catering Director for various establishments. I enjoyed all aspects of processing inventory management and computerizing spreadsheets in the early '80s.

After several years in the hospitality industry, I moved into Retail POS Computer technology. Experienced in training staff, it was an easy transition to training retail store employees on Point-of-Sale and Inventory Software for various retailers.

At the start of 2000, I formed DE Consulting. As an independent contractor, I offered technical & customer service support and data services to multiple businesses: Web site developers, Direct Marketing List Brokers, internet job boards, and POS clients.  

I started noticing the trend towards Internet Marketing and educated myself by taking SEO courses and studies. I began providing Online Organic SEO Marketing Strategies to help customers get found on the internet. I offered my services to clients with websites and a core group of contractors and specialists in Custom web design development, Marketing, Social Media, Branding and Graphic artists.

In 2015 I moved back to Vancouver Island to be closer to family and our shared Shawnigan lakeside cabins. My husband and I both work from our Shawnigan Lake home offices. My husband, Michael Battler, is a Store and fixture designer and owns a Retail Design firm, CDM Retail.

As for my photo, I am more of a Dog person, but our little Ginger came to us as a birthday gift for my mother's 100th birthday, and after she passed this year, Ginger became ours.

SEO and Internet Marketing

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the key to obtaining cost-effective visitors for your website, which is an integral part of any digital marketing strategy.

Does your website appear when people search for your products or services on Google? It is not easy achieving visibility and rankings on search engines, but you can do it. We help our client's sites earn rankings, traffic, and proven results.

At DE Consulting, we are passionate about helping our clients build their businesses through exposure on the internet.

I wrote my book, " A Beginner's Guide to SEO," to help my clients understand the aspects of Search Engine Optimization and how it helps get more customers.

Download it for free or you can buy the paper back online at Amazon.ca
