about us

Microhire is the largest Australian owned corporate event staging company specialising in audiovisual and event staging. For nearly 30 years they have fostered a culture of innovation that’s present in everything they do from their customer service to the inspiring results they achieve with their amazing events.


Our Approach

Bright Owl Marketing were delighted to assist Microhire by creating a marketing plan with a 12 month action plan which included various digital marketing, print, event and offline initiatives. The key focus area was to link business development and marketing so they could work hand in hand with each other.

Bright Owl Marketing first organised an interactive workshop with senior stakeholders in the business to understand their customer segments, their pain points, and why they engage Microhire over and above their competitors. We also undertook a detailed brand positioning analysis and were able to clearly clarify and define Microhire’s key capabilities and positioning as the industry experts in Audio Vidual event delivery.

Our focus was also to help grow the warm lead pre-sale customer database and help grow the Microhire business targeting bigger and more repeat business clients.

To help achieve this Bright Owl Marketing delivered multiple marketing strategies and activities, which included:

  • 12 Month Marketing Plan Development
  • Key Message Development and Copywriting
  • Trade Show Marketing Strategy
  • Graphic Design of 40+ Page Sales Pitch Proposals
  • Marketing Coaching & Mentoring
  • PowerPoint Presentations
  • Social Media Strategy

The Challenge

Microhire originally got in touch with our Marketing Agency because they were lacking an overall vision and a strategic approach to marketing. There was no dedicated marketing resource for the sizeable business and with so many different business units, the quality of marketing outputs were not aligning with the sales funnels process or service capabilities. There was also no understanding of it key point of different/unique selling proposition and no unified key message that could be applied across all touch points. They also had difficulty translating their technical information into benefit driven packages that resonate and compels customers to find out more.


The Results

Bright Owl Marketing was effective at simplifying and clarifying how the business offer is communicated and align to the sales funnel.  

Microhire was effectively positioned as the industry expert, best in category, and industry benchmark across all communications touch points & become the events that you deliver: Innovative, service focused, exciting and seamless.

We also helped Microhire become more integrated with the events industry, building professional partnerships and relationships to raise the business’s profile and drive business recommendations.

With our focus being to attract bigger clients, Bright Owl Marketing helped the sales team overhaul their Sales Pitch Proposals, with a focus on layout and structure, key message development, high converting sales copywriting and professional graphic design. We worked on four major proposals, often over 40 pages in length, which converted in two major clients for the Microhire team, each worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. This was supporting with engagement PowerPoint Presentations and sound marketing advice to help support the sales team in future client pitches.

Our Raving Fans

Marketing Workshops – Travel Industry

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.

Marketing Consultants and Brand Strategy – Professional Associations

Dear Tess and Craig, thank you for your assistance with bringing MPA “up-to-date’ and for the time and energy you have both put into taking our organisation to the next level. We look forward to working with you again in the new year.

Marketing Workshop & Plan – Healthcare

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.
