Established in 2011, Marcomms Australia is Melbourne’s nimble strategic public relations and marketing communications agency making a big impact.
People’s beliefs and values now drive their choices, decisions and expectations when it comes to working, buying and investing. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to empower leaders to think bigger picture and build a brand on a purpose and not just a promise.
When businesses connect their people to a compelling purpose, strong set of principles and aligned brand promise, they improve strategic alignment and employee engagement, and this ultimately drives better results, relationships and reputation in business.
Our work helps organisations to become an aspirational, purpose-driven brand by resolving problems associated with a lack of brand clarity, connectedness and consistency, such as:
Lack of CLARITY
* Poor marketing and sales performance from an differentiated brand
* It’s unclear what you stand for as a brand
* Lack of a compelling value proposition
Lack of CONNECTION
* Customers are confused about what you do
* Struggling to attract and retain top talent
* Stakeholders don’t trust you
Lack of CONSISTENCY
* You have inconsistent brand touchpoints
* Staff don’t speak with a united when describing your brand’s purpose and promise
* ad hoc communications and marketing wasting time, money and effort

We believe in leading by example, particularly in pursuit of our vision of a world where brands embrace a purpose that moves humanity forward. That’s why we are proud to launch our new corporate giving program Animal Humanity Worldwide (AHW), in 2019/2020.

The foundational members of our Animal Humanity Worldwide network in 2019/2020 are Animals Australia, Animals Asia and Edgar’s Mission.
