Muhammad Isap - Digital Marketing Manager
Tell us what do you do at FM:Systems?
I’m the Digital Marketing Manager for FM:Systems and I currently look after all things digital marketing globally. This includes tasks such as managing and optimizing our website, SEO improvements, help our site organically rank higher, digital ads etc.
Tell us a little bit about your educational and professional background.
So, I have a degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications Management, and my education didn’t stop there. I continually do research on different tools and certifications. I’ve also been fortunate enough to work in different industries and sectors, covering B2C and B2B marketing over my career.
Tell us something people might not know about FM:Systems.
It’s a difficult one, as we’ve got an awesome company culture at FM:Systems, and everything is pretty transparent. However, the one thing that comes to mind, is that the FM:Systems corporate website received the highest number of visitors (ever) for nearly three months straight this year – this is data going back since FM:Systems website was first launched many years back.
Sum up your FM:Systems career to date in one word.
What is your proudest moment at FM:Systems?
The launch of our revamped corporate website! We really tried to focus on the user experience when designing it, and at the same time, allowed us to make some great changes, helping our ranking in search engines. We see the website as a ‘living thing’, so there’ll be continual improvements and updates. The website is our ‘shop front window’ to the world after all!

Toilet paper is more important than milk (during quarantine times!)
