Founder and Managing Director – Mark Tull
Mark Tull found search online as a result of managing a tropical oasis (Island Palms Resort) on Magnetic Island. He and his family got the job in 1999 and took up residency in 2000. Island Palms needed a website and Mark Tull quickly built one and got it found on search.
After Mark Tull and the family moved back home to care for a sick family member in 2003 he became the online publisher for CVC, a world wide, multi language travel and resort group and started on the path to all things Google, Yahoo and Bing.
It was Mark Tull’s job to co-ordinate content in Mandarin, English, Spanish over the groups websites and as a result, Mark Tull found Google ads in 2004. Following massive and rapid success for the companies sites, he partitioned his employers to become shareholders in a new company, which he founded with Andrew Coates. Hot Goanna was born. Mark Tull quickly amassed all of the available Google and Yahoo qualifications and awards, including being the second Google Adwords Company in Australia, the 7th Google Adwords Professional in Australia and the first Yahoo Marketing Ambassador in Australia.
Google came knocking on Mark Tull’s door in 2007 and the coveted Google Adwords Reseller contract was granted to Hot Goanna, the first company in Australia outside a capital city to achieve this status.
Mark Tull sold 50% of the company to TPP internet, paying out his old shareholders with a profit. TPP Was then bought by Net Registry, and Mark Tull decided to sell out of Hot Goanna before the takeover. Mark then went to work for Keith Paulin at SEO Works, the eminent leader in Search Engine Optimisation in Australia, before deciding that a wholistic approach was needed to website and search in Australia.
Website Essentials was born and Mark Tull quickly built the business on performance to be recoginzed again by Google and Yahoo, each including the new company in their Agency programs in Australia.
Of course, not every business is going to succeed online, but with Website Essentials methodology and applications, most of our clients do. Our team consists of client focused experts in their disciplines. Hosting, Design, Database, Backups, Hack prevention, conversions, SEO and of course Adwords. We are a mainly work from home team, and we pride ourselves on service delivery that is “outside of 9 to 5”.
In recent years, we have dedicated ourselves to help those that cannot or do not have the resources to do what they do for their communities. We have a one in ten rule. For each 10 sites we build we open up another not for profit or charitable to assist. Many we charge just a dollar year to. Its all about putting back. There are a great dearth of opportunity in our vertical to assist and mentor non commercials to do the very best they can with with their worthy causes. Very recently, I rejoined the Queensland Rural Fire Brigade and saw again, first hand, how important exposure and fund raising really is, and, preservation of available funds to share the message. This is vital, otherwise, you are just making money to spend money on trying to make money. As long as I am at the helm we will continue to aspire to community service as part of our corporate survival plan.
Word of Mouth – What REAL People Say About Website Essentials & Mark Tull
The great thing about working with Mark Tull of Website Essentials is that he makes the technical aspect of Search Engine Optimization about as understandable as it can possibly be made. After working on our sites www.australianbedandbreakfast.com.au and www.hostedaccommodationaustralia.com.au , their ranking just kept increasing and now they are in the top position on the front page of Google under a series of very competitive search terms. We would recommend Mark and his team to other companies for a professional approach and following ethical SEO practices.

“Mark and the team at Website Essentials took our drab, poorly performing website and created something fresh, interactive and most importantly, a lead generator. I found all the team at Web Essentials great to work with especially Mark, who came out to our office and very patiently taught us how to get the most out of our site. We are very happy, and now very busy, customers”
