Humble Beginnings

Our first video was created back in 2012, hosted on YouTube in 2013 and turned a small two man underperforming lighting business into a multi-million dollar scalable and saleable company that later became the inception for Staples Media Australia.

We started with a marketing strategy, a list of activities that we carefully planned and executed over a number of years… INDIVIDUALLY NONE OF IT WORKED WELL.

We began to realise that for our marketing to work effectively we needed highly targeted and engaging content that wasn’t about selling but educating and creating a relationship, and that’s why video works as well as it does, because it’s personal and engaging.

Eventually everything was scrapped from that list except the three things that worked consistently. ONLINE PRESENCE, FACE TO FACE INTERACTION and TARGETED ADS. We delivered our content as if our customer was in our store getting everything they needed.

This wasn’t some magical formula but it’s what worked for us, the game has changed completed now but the basics of an effective marketing strategy are still there. It’s just a lot more work now as we are completely soaked in content every day through social media channels!
