Years ago I travelled to Adelaide with my partner, Josh. We stopped in a town called Kaniva.
There was a shop called The Purple Starfish and that's where I first heard the starfish story.
That story resonated with me so much, that years later I named our company after it.
Today I have offices in Albury Wodonga, and Rutherglen. And clients located across NSW and Victoria.

The starfish story is the reason Starfish Marketing exists. It reflects and drives my Why!
It's a story of an old man walking along a beach as the tide is going out. The beach is covered with starfish stranded on the sand.
As he walks along, he sees a young child picking up starfish one at a time; thowing them into the ocean.
The man says to the child,
“why are you doing that. There are hundreds of starfish stranded. You're not going to make a difference.”.
The child picks up a single starfish, throws it back into the ocean and says,
“It made a difference for that one.”.
I believe marketing can make a real difference to business; that we have a responsibility to make a difference in our communities; and that we can have fun along the way.
When businesses are successful and growing, communities are successful and growing.
So my Why is to make a difference – even if it's only through little actions, one starfish at a time.
Oh, and to have fun doing it. Because life is too short not to have fun.
Like the starfish story, let's make a real difference together.
To make a difference by helping business owners make their marketing happen, because when business is successful our community is more successful.
To help businesses achieve their goals through marketing services that deliver results
To create a positive impact for the broader community by being connected and involved
To have fun in everything we do and make sure our clients have fun too
