About Us

Welcome to BlueFish!

Build momentum around your marketing projects with our unique blend of big brand experience & small business know-how.

I established BlueFish Marketing in 2009 to continue to do the work I’ve always found so rewarding – managing big brands like Continental, Rexona and Dove – and to be able to work around my much awaited baby (who’s now 8!). Its work I thoroughly enjoy and continue to do today, but a funny thing happened along the way… in the process of building BlueFish and helping friends with their own ventures, I became even more passionate about Marketing for small & medium businesses and start-ups. It’s hugely rewarding being able to help someone bring their dream to life & to build businesses and brands that really connect with people.

 So, now I do both! With the support of my trusty office dog Bailey, I support business big and small, developing and implementing impactful, effective marketing plans that drive results – and over the past ten years BlueFish has provided Marketing Expertise to 37 businesses across 50 brands. With a team of highly experienced specialists, and by keeping our overheads low, our clients receive world-class marketing support without the price tag.

Whether you’re an FMCG, B2B, SME, or NFP, give us a call today on 0413 486 833 and experience the BlueFish difference!
