Cyril Sansano

Senior SEO Strategist & Marketing Operator

SEO is part of a bigger picture and not just about the technicalities or great content. It requires implementing the “extra 10%” that no one else will do. It’s about thinking long term whilst honing a strategic, systematic, and scientific approach. It’s about properly identifying priorities and understanding the importance of deep focus.


About Cyril

Cyril Sansano has helped grow multiple marketing teams for small businesses, e.commerce stores, and various enterprises.

It was a decade ago that Cyril had his first taste of marketing by selling tickets through Facebook ads for his own workshop on confidence building.

From there, business owners started asking for his help with their own marketing efforts — in particular around Facebook. As a result, Cyril ended up hiring, training, and leading small marketing teams for various clients.

This led Cyril to partner up with a business called Big Brand Speaking that was selling a 3 Day Speaker Training Workshop and a 1 year Big Brand University Program – tailored to coaches and consultants.

Cyril’s main responsibility was to run the marketing department for the company and for a few selected clients. He also facilitated over 200 marketing workshops. Cyril then helped a fast-growing property group to move their marketing team in-house, developed successful marketing campaigns, and built a solid marketing foundation and automation.

From there, Cyril has developed an SEO department for a large and fast-growing digital currency enterprise along with some of their strategic partners – working in a super-fast-paced environment.

Most recently, Cyril scaled SEO and link building campaigns for US-based eCommerce stores and various high-traffic sites.

Professional Stories
Before Australia

Cyril was born in Monaco and, before moving to Australia, worked in Paris – starting out in store management and then shifting his leadership skills into the real estate world.

Patisserie Sansano

My first job was in my family business, where the hardest part was to not eat all the chocolate cakes or lemon pies and sell them instead.

Nature & Découvertes

My first managerial role was with Nature & Découvertes, which had over 100 employees generating over $20 Million

I chose to work with them for their values and focus on building a sustainable business.


I then worked in real estate, starting as a sales executive until two of my team members asked the CEO to promote me to manager – leading me to run the #1 agency in the network back then.
