about us

If you’re new to Australia then Settle Inn is the perfect place to start. Settle Inn is located in the heart of St Kilda, Melbourne and provides International Students, Freelancers, Travellers and New Residents all the help they need with starting out in a new country. Just for starters they can help with accommodation, employment, language skills, mentoring and even networking. 

Members have the ability to rent an affordable space to work from. They can also attend seminars and have loads of business promotion opportunities. There is also an amazing social scene for newbies and even wellness programs to ensure you stay fit and healthy on your new adventure. Settle Inn truly is the best place for you to make your grand entry into Australia, and it’s only costs $20 month. You can’t beat that!

Our Approach

During the Pandemic all our meetings where successfully conducted via Zoom and regular catch ups over the phone. One of our digital marketing consultants organised an initial workshop to better understand what Wilson wanted to achieve with the site, to map out his target market and why customers would use his services, and the level of functionality required.

Bright Owl Marketing then created customised wire frames that outlined each page of the site before getting the site fully designed by our professional graphic designer. Once this was approved our developer then custom-coded the site into WordPress using WooCommerce as the preferred eCommerce solution.

The Challenge

Wilson Bauguil is the mastermind of Settle Inn, having first hand experience of what it’s like to move to Australia trying to make new connections and establishing themselves in a brave new world. Wilson was referred by an existing client and new that our digital marketing agency had the experience and the know how to create a custom build website that had absolutely everything to help new international travellers coming to Australia.

The staff are absolutely amazing at Settle Inn and have every bit of experience when it comes to migration, finding new accommodation and anything else you could imagine. With their assistance you will find yourself in a safe environment surrounded by people that are just like you to make you feel welcome.

The Results

What sets Settle Inn apart from other shared workspace offices and hubs is that it is a fully customised eCommerce solution. With other hubs you have to send an enquiry before someone gets back to you with pricing and booking availability. Whereas with Settle Inn, all you have to do is sign up to become a member, then use the intuitive booking portal to find and secure your time at Settle Inn. Whether you need some extra room to do computer work, or book out the entire space to run a workshop, Settle Inn caters for every opportunity.

Bright Owl Marketing also created different packages for customers depending on where they are at in their customer journey, plus we introduced a number of services such as Visa consultations, Yoga and Mediation, Resume Writing and eBikes, which can be purchased separately by users. We also introduced a Community page to showcase all the businesses that are helping to grow the Settle Inn community, which is coming along in leaps and bounds. 


Wow what an amazing service, from initial contact to the final website, Craig from Bright Owl has been helpful, responsive and creative. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful website that has received heaps of compliments from my business community. My business has already benefited enormously from this dynamic website thanks to Craig. He has created a little bit of magic for me and I can’t recommend his services highly enough. Plus his fees are incredibly reasonable for the level for work involved and the number of changes I made. Thanks again for putting up with me.

Our Raving Fans

Website Design – Retail Marketing

Craig is tremendously knowledgeable, creative and personable and all three qualities are very important to me in choosing people I do business with. He strikes a perfect balance of professionalism and personal attention. I have enjoyed working with him on my new website and I am always impressed with the work he does for me.

Website Design & Development

Our website needed improvements in both look and functionality. We appointed Craig to manage the website development and were impressed by his level of commitment to the project, his high standards, and his thoughtful collaborative approach.

Craig’s expertise was crucial to building a website that reflects an understanding of our market and competitors, and gives us a distinct advantage.

I would confidently recommend Craig to anyone as he delivered above and beyond what I was expecting – at an affordable price too.

Website Design – SEO – Copywriting

My current website was looking tired and I knew it needed a revamp. But it was difficult finding a person who could tackle all of my marketing requirements and understood the battlefield tour market, a very niche and involved area of the travel industry.

Craig very confidently project managed the entire website development, from the design through to the copywriting, optimising the content for search engines and implementing suitable Google Adword strategies. In fact, within the first month of operation I was driving more traffic to my new website compared to my old website.

As an experienced marketing consultant, Craig has been able to take the bull-by-the-horns with all of my marketing requirements and incorporating them into one cohesive marketing plan. This involved writing and distributing press releases, advertising and brochure development, and seamlessly integrating them with our online marketing strategy. We’ve been so happy that we’ve been using his services for over three years now.

Craig is a very conscientious and determined marketing professional who is clearly passionate about his business. My only regret is that I didn’t find him sooner.
