John is a talented, genuine businessman with a wealth of varied experience at all levels; who deserves respect from those likeminded people who are keen to get on in life through hard work, purpose and persistence.

His sole focus is to build long term business relationships; instead of a quick sell and gone. I was struggling with my small business after 18 months, wading through PR, back office requirements, cleaning, building the business, training staff etc…

John took the time to quantify the chaos, provide a reality check, and re-ignite the pilot light before I burnt out, by providing direction, guidance and purpose to our business. His perception and astute judgement of people was certainly beneficial with regard to staff development and training. Perhaps the most productive advice he provided, was to be single minded with your time wherever possible – stay on task. Achieve small goals, towards your target. With multiple questions and conversation, he provides clarity and vision with ongoing support via phone, email and text. His IT knowledge in generating tools for cash flow, budgeting etc… Is excellent and easy to work with. John is very selective with his client base. His support is reassuring; his timing impeccable. You have no option but to rise to the challenges he sets, knowing it can only assist the development of your business towards growth and potentially a position of Super profits to on sell, or franchise out. Take the challenge.

John was referred to me by an industry colleague, and I have to say, I have certainly achieved an amazing amount of growth in a short space of time, thanks to John. John has been an amazing sounding board for my thoughts and ideas, and is always available with a cheery outlook at the end of the phone or email. His skills and knowledge with regard to running a business and creating growth is outstanding. He is great with numbers and also has a very personable, warm approach, with a positive outlook towards business and life. My confidence in business has soared to new levels thanks to John. I trust him implicitly and expect he will be a part of my business for many years to come. All small to medium business owners wanting to have an outstanding business must take the time to speak with John.

I would like to thank Craig from Bright Owl Marketing for all his help over the last year. When we look at where we were a year ago, and look out how our marketing department has developed under the guidance of Craig it is great to see how much has been improved! 

When we first started working with Craig he really took the time to get to know our product and industry and feel that all the advice he gives is tailor made and specific to the needs of our business and the industry that we work in. 

Not only has he come up with some really innovative ideas, but he has followed up on a weekly basis and offered training where necessary to ensure that we are getting the most out of his services and products. This has worked really well with regular telephone catch ups and visits to our offices for brainstorming sessions. It is great to know that I have Craigs support and can always shoot him an email if I need some marketing advice and will hear back the same day.

I feel personally that I have a much broader understanding of marketing now and how it can benefit our company thanks to Craig sharing his knowledge and expertise. He has helped implement multiple new initiatives and brought us up to speed with modern strategies for increasing customer touch points, and really getting ourselves known in the market. We have updated a lot of our collateral and when Craig helped us launch our new rewards program his designer did a fantastic job on the brochure, really eye catching and in keeping with the branding that Craig helped us develop. 

Really great to see such tangible results from our work together! Thanks Craig!

As part of the team at Boronia Travel Centre, I have been using the Marketing Consulting services of Craig Pethebridge and the team at Bright Owl Marketing in Melbourne for the last 7 years.

Craig is always only a phone call away and easy to get hold of at any time. If he is unable to assist us on the spot he gets back to us within a few hours with a solution.

Craig has used both traditional marketing as well as strong online campaigns to boost our business significantly. We have had traffic to our website triple and bookings for our Battlefield Tours have increased year on year since we began using Bright Owl Marketing.

For all the service and success we have had with Bright Owl Marketing the monthly cost is very affordable and their knowledge of the travel industry leaves the others in the dust!

Bright Owl has help tailor their marketing solutions to suit our needs and if you are considering a company then look no further as they are extremely flexible and reliable.

I would not hesitate to recommend Craig and Bright Owl Marketing to any business.

I’ve worked with Craig over the past 6 months now and have seen the growth in my business already. He’s listened to my ideas and the brand I’m trying to create for my agency and worked with me to create the marketing around that. His ideas are fresh and fun but more importantly they show me the results. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bright Owl Marketing to anyone who wants to see growth to their business through marketing.

“IPP has worked with Jodie on numerous projects over the past 3 years, more recently on a major web development project. Jodie was engaged to spearhead a refresh of our brand then develop a website strategy for our new corporate website. She was also responsible for the project management aspect of the site design and build. Jodie’s knowledge of web strategy, development and SEO is impressive, as is her ability to work seamlessly with all levels of an organisation and associated agencies/vendors. She is professional, calm under pressure and has the ability to think both strategically and logically as the situation dictates. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jodie.”

Hi Craig, a special thank you coming your way from me too! Your presentation was spot on! 

I honestly believe that the messages you were re-enforcing regarding all the marketing initiatives that we’ve been trying to push from our side, did have a greater impact on our managers than we can actually achieve ourselves. So thank you for taking the time and showing such interest in our Company Agencies team and what we’re trying to achieve with our own marketing activities. 

Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future.

Thank you Craig for your email follow up from our meeting last week. It was a joy to meet you in person and I really valued the time you provided and the generous sharing of your ideas. Of course, I was buzzing afterwards thinking about possibilities and trying to digest your comments. I feel like I have calmed down now and see my vision more clearly. I have also calmed about my competition and am so pleased I have found you to collaborate with to bring my vision to light, rather than trying to pit myself against the competition that beat me to it – this includes my review of the member fee and dropping the more formal aspects of advertising that I thought would be necessary.
