You may recognise her as the face of Anna Gilbert Photography est. in 2004 or for her years as an Advertising Account Manager specialising in Tourism Marketing.
With extensive experience as a brand strategist, photographer, content producer and advertising account manager with both traditional and digital marketing experience, Anna was inspired in 2020 to launch her own creative marketing agency with a no-BS approach (something that seemed impossible to find in the industry).

She brings to the table significant Brand Development leadership on projects such as Explore Rockhampton, Experience Charleville, Mooloolaba Weddings (a joint venture with Mooloolaba Chamber of Commerce and Sunshine Coast Council), TFE Hotels and Aussie World which included account management of the launch of The Banana Bender Pub.
Previously a Senior Account Manager for the official Sales and Marketing Agency for Tourism and Events Queensland, this particular role entailed management of co-operatives, ad hoc campaigns and brand development for Queensland Regional and Local Tourism Organisations plus key Tourism Operators in partnership with TEQ for 3 and a half years.
Anna has overseen and co-ordinated projects with many moving parts and multiple stakeholders, notably on production of publications such as Connect Magazine and Mooloolaba Weddings Magazine; her written skill set includes copywriting for social platforms, sales copy, strategic campaign messaging, eDMs (including the curation of weekly mail outs for TEQ to industry), blogs and editorial, digital design and creative direction for major campaigns including print, radio, Spotify, programmatic display ads, cinema, billboards, national TVC’s and in-flight media.
Anna has also designed and managed corporate events and fundraisers including MC’ing, plus taught photography courses to over 300 students and her previous employment roles included the simultaneous management of two Brisbane travel agencies.

We take the time to understand your business, your target audience, goals and objectives and undertake necessary audits and research to gain valuable insights that we use to form the basis of a personalised strategic plan.
We are open and honest and believe in a no-BS approach. We’ll advise you on the most efficient way to reach your target audience – simply and effectively.

We want to take the worry of marketing off of your hands so you can breathe easy knowing your plan has been well-considered and expertly implemented.
WHERE DO WE START?
We start with a strategy session! This is where we review your brand’s current performance to identify any gaps in your marketing plan. Very often we find that we uncover new insights and opportunities during these sessions, so they’re extremely useful to have.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A STRATEGY SESSION?
We undertake research and an audit on your existing marketing channels, review the competitor landscape and prepare a strategy and recommendations based on our findings. We’ll ask you to confirm a budget and timeframe and prepare a marketing plan that’s fit for purpose.
No matter what stage of the marketing journey you’re on we can help you to define or refine your marketing strategy.
