Dear Visitor,

Marketing Broker Australia was born out of owner and director Luke Hawley’s marketing journey. Luke spent several years working with a large multi-national corporation (Procter & Gamble – P&G). He specialised in trade marketing for skincare, healthcare and feminine hygiene. Luke worked with small to large distributors and retailers across Australia and New Zealand, including Coles, Woolworths, Metcash, Target and Priceline. He helped his clients (the retailers and distributors) to leverage their marketing assets (in and out of the store) to grow their beauty and healthcare businesses using meaningful data and insight. Using the training and resources of P&G, Luke provided consultation support. He saw the real impact of collaborating with marketing and category managers.

“It is so easy for even the most sophisticated category and marketing managers to get stuck in their bubble. I was able to add real value to their decision-making by sharing what has worked around the world using P&G’s comprehensive, world-leading research. I was able to share real game-changing insights with them.”

Luke returned to the Sunshine Coast and the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2016. He continues to lecture, tutor and help with course content development in a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate marketing courses. Luke has a real passion for developing a new generation of marketers that operate with integrity, creativity and who are always mindful of the impact they’re having – not just on their customers, but their community and environment.

“I enjoy teaching marketing. It keeps me connected to the literature, emerging trends, and aspiring marketing talent. It keeps me on my toes, keeps me honest and mindful of my industry, the good and the bad.”

In 2018, Luke started a digital marketing agency with other aspiring marketing professionals, each bringing their expertise and talent to the mix – a collaboration of four industry experts with over 30 years of shared marketing experience. The agency focused on supporting local service providers with affordable marketing solutions. This provided the team with an opportunity to speak to and work with hundreds of local business owners. Over two years, the team discovered the following:

  1. There is a lot of confusion about marketing. Business owners are overwhelmed by choice.
  2.  There is no ‘one-size fits all’ for marketing a business – no magic formula.
  3. No single agency has the scale or expertise to provide a marketing solution for all types of businesses.
  4.  The fundamentals of marketing were being ignored for quick wins on lead generation.
  5.  The marketing industry lacks oversight. It is difficult for businesses to find trusted and proven marketing professionals.

“All the exceptional talent was hard for businesses to find. They were drowned out by the noise of amateur marketers’ false promises.”

As the agency grew, the team met with various local marketing professionals. The intent was to form collaborative partnerships to better serve our shared customer base. The idea was simple: we are stronger together. In those conversations, the team discovered a wealth of marketing expertise. Also, marketing professionals and agencies don’t always have the time to self-promote. They prioritise their clients. Which means all this exceptional talent was hard for businesses to find. They were drowned out by all the noise of amateur marketers’ false promises.

“It was apparent to all of us that we can offer real value to business owners and marketers by filling this huge gap. We were inspired by the trust and support the mortgage and insurance brokers had during the royal banking commission. Although the market distrusts the big banks, the trust level for local brokers remained high – and they are still one of the most trusted professions in Australia. If a broker can be the trusted adviser for first time home buyers reaching out to banks, then we can do the same for local business owners engaging with marketing professionals.”

Marketing Broker Australia was started in late 2019. In 2020, the team focused on defining what it means to be a marketing broker. What value can be offered to local business owners and marketing professionals? It’s been a year of fantastic innovation. Marketing Broker Australia now provides over 25 different marketing services and is one of Australia’s largest network of independent marketing providers.
