From $0 to Six Figures: Our Client's Journey to a Yearly Passive Income

Peter came to us with a dream, a kernel of potential. Optimus took that dream, strapped it to a rocket of cutting-edge digital marketing and lead generation tactics, and blasted it into the stratosphere. We didn’t just add fuel to the fire – we sparked a whole new blaze.

In record time, Peter’s startup went from a whisper in the wind to a roar in the market, raking in six figures passively. That’s not just growth; that’s Optimus-powered dominance.

10x Business Growth

We don't play the game of hope and wait. We play to win. Peter's success story? That's just one of many. Your business could be next on the launch pad.

The Bottom Line:

We don't just meet goals; we exceed them. We turn aspirations into achievements. The Au Pair Club's journey from a passionate idea to a profit-generating powerhouse is a testament to our commitment to excellence. If you're ready to elevate your vision, we're here to make it happen.

Quitting Corporate - Empowering Dreams, R0 to R250K in 12 Months

The Au Pair Club, a trailblazing online training academy for aspiring au pairs and nannies, arrived at our doorstep with a mission to expand their reach and empower more individuals to achieve their dreams. But they needed the magic touch to turn it into reality. 

Enter Optimus: we didn’t just take on the challenge; we owned it. Our team crafted a lead generation funnel that was more than a strategy – it was a masterstroke.

What happened next wasn’t just success; it was a revolution. The Au Pair Club’s online business transformed from zero to hero, skyrocketing from R0 to over R250K in pure profit in just one year. This wasn’t growth – it was a meteoric rise, a testament to the power of a perfectly executed digital strategy.


Trusted By The Big Guns, The Movers and Shakers, The Market Leaders – That's Us

When brands want to not just play the game but dominate it, they come to Optimus. We’re not just trusted; we’re the secret weapon behind their success.

Dr. Peter Alkema


Optimus01 have been supporting me for at least 10 years with website admin, mailing software, lead generation advice, lead pages, audience building and a range of digital marketing expertise. Through their support, Darryn and the team directly contributed to a 10x growth of my digital information product business during that period to a 6-figure ($) per year, largely passive income business. I also learned a lot about automation and digital marketing principles and channel optimisation from my consultations with Darryn over the years. All this has given me an incredible amount of financial freedom, so I highly recommend Darryn, Cassie and the whole team at Optimus01.
