There is one thing that our clients constantly remind us is important to their business, that is a deal-breaker when engaging with a marketing agency. It isn't as tangible as many areas of marketing, but it does require the marketing agency to be on the same page.
Coming into our Melbourne marketing agency today, I was faced with a huge dilemma - how are we going to adapt to wearing a facemask in the office? This might sound trivial but it is not. We talk all day long, on the phone, in person, during workshops and Zoom calls. How are we going to do this with a facemask on?
With an influx of inbound leads to our marketing agency in Melbourne, we have been inundated with questions related to the best digital marketing strategies that are most relevant to today's environment.

Digital marketing is currently the hottest component of the marketing strategy because most of our customers may not go into our stores, restaurants, businesses and entertainment venues for quite some time so their only connection to your brand is via a digital medium.

With so many marketers now spending their days working from home, the role of marketing consultant services has been significantly changed.
When a company chooses to engage a marketing agency or marketing consultant to run their marketing campaigns, it's important to ask a few marketing questions that will help you make a better decision on who is the right choice for marketing your company.
The way technology and software companies are approaching the 'new marketing' era is evolving rapidly with nimble companies flexing their stronghold in delivering customers and prospects with communications that reinforce why they should be chosen over their competitors.

Interestingly enough, technology companies are still marketing, while many of their other discipline counterparts have pressed pause. The reason for this is the reliance on technology to power through any uncertainty and secure companies with better efficiencies, long-term cost savings and outcomes.
In truth, I have no risk management solution in place. My glass is half full, I am the eternal optimist and there is this underlying belief that 'everything will be alright'. 

So, when COVID hit, I thought it would pass. A few weeks of hysteria and then we would be back to normal. A small bump in the road.

The magic pivot or play

We're almost six months into the year and from all accounts, it's been the most challenging, disruptive year in many of our lives. For business owners, it's been a time that has led to much reflection; cutting costs, closing doors, pivoting. Who would have thought that we would all be in this position together?
The day I landed in Aspen at the start of March I realized that something was different. It was eerie. The streets were quieter than they normally are that time of year, and there was this sense of not getting too close to anyone or else something terrible might happen.
