360-degree email marketing expertise
There are so many moving parts and skills needed to do email marketing well. When you work with us, you’ll benefit from an entire team of experienced email marketing specialists, including strategists, campaign managers, designers and developers. We’ve been helping organisations create email campaigns that resonate with audiences and build connection since 2006. Whether your campaigns are internal or external, we’ll advise on best practices and use our blend of creative and technical skill to help you create emails that drive action.
High levels of accuracy, efficiency and creativity allow us to work at a very fast pace. This is important in an industry where tight deadlines and last-minute changes are the norm! We want our clients to feel a sense of certainty when working with us, so our approach is process driven. We’ve established a campaign creation process for our clients that makes the entire experience more organised and transparent. It also enables our team to be on top of their game.
Meet the team
We’re a virtual collective of experienced email marketing specialists. We love working as a team and our culture of communication is one of the key ingredients in our secret sauce.
Melaina is the founder of Cantaloupe Digital and the glue that keeps all the moving parts together. She’s sometimes referred to as the boss (but really doesn’t like it when you call her that). Her enthusiasm for all the things (and people) that make remote working possible led her to establish an email agency whose team members are encouraged to work from anywhere. She enjoys baking, reading and a spot of gardening. She also loves the outdoors; if she isn’t volunteering with her family at her local surf lifesaving club, you might see her jogging through the streets of Mossel Bay. Nothing like running to get the blood and creative energies flowing.
Senior Email Designer and Campaign Manager
Thys joined our team in February 2018 and we call him our email sensei as he’s the master of everything HTML, data and email related. When he isn’t sweating to find a solution for the latest Outlook quirk, he can be found in a card or boardgame battle with his wife and kids, or reading the latest fantasy novel.
Tessa’s been creating beautiful designs – out of what seems nothing at times – and coding emails for Cantaloupe Digital almost since before there was a world wide web. Sometimes, when she takes a break from digital wizardry, she lets her fingers do the magic in her garden. At the end of a long day, you’ll find her relaxing at the beach with her family.
Rob entered the Cantaloupe cyber office at the end of 2018. Like all the other team members, he has some technical clout with code and digital authoring, but his passion lies in design. On weekends you’ll find him on mountain trails in and around Cape Town, or at home preparing something delicious to eat.
Kristie joined the team in April 2015 and shares an office with Tessa (when not in lockdown). Kristie enjoys yoga to kickstart her day. She’s sometimes referred to as the female Flash Gordon as she can get a job out so quickly, it almost doesn’t seem that her fingers touch the keyboard. When she isn’t imitating superheroes, she likes to slow down and spend quality time with her family.
In August 2019, Robyn’s entry into the Cantaloupe team started with a request for assistance with a monthly report. She’s fondly known as ‘The Analyst’, which says it all. Her love of graphs, data, order and visualisation inevitably led to her becoming the go-to person for Q&A and email testing. When she isn’t fiddling around with numbers, she volunteers on the body corporate of the complex she lives in and then snuggles with a good book. As George R.R. Martin said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . . The man who never reads lives only one.”
New Business Coordinator
Nolwandle joined Cantaloupe in 2016 as an email marketer and also helped in quality assurance and testing roles. She knows Cantaloupe’s services and email best practices inside out, so she’s perfectly positioned to identify prospective clients and help solve their pain points.
When she isn’t working, Nolwandle loves taking walks and listening to music (she appreciates many classics including Paul Simon). She’s also an aspiring French Bulldog owner and hopes to be joined by a little friend on these walks soon!
