This was the inaugural event and all aspects were developed for the very first time. Small Chilli Marketing also helped to support the judging process that I was leading by organising all the appointments for the judges and providing management support.”

Marketing Child care centre

Dewdrops Early Learning Centre

“We worked with Small Chilli Marketing to implement our new email marketing system.  Our aim was to better communicate with parents and staff across all of our 3 childcare centres.  We wanted our brand to be used consistently across our communications with our clients.  We found Small Chilli Marketing to be very knowledgable and easy to deal with.  They were so responsive and we had our system up and running in no time.  Small Chilli also ran a training session so that our staff could get up to speed quickly with using the new tools and software.  The staff feedback was great, they found the session to be very clear, easy to understand, informative and easy to follow and they felt supported throughout the learning process.  I have no hesitation in recommending Small Chilli Marketing to any other small business looking to improve how they communicate with their clients. The outcome has been that we now have an easy to use system to send out e-newsletters and important announcement bulletins that look great and are consistently branded.  This gives us the professional look we wanted for our business.”

Brotherhood of St. Laurence

“Effie made incredible connections with the participants and delivered tailored marketing workshops across Brimbank, Whittlesea and Hume in a professional and friendly manner. The women who attended the workshops all have English as their second language so can find it confronting to pitch their businesses ideas in both formal and informal settings. With this in mind, Small Chilli Marketing tailored a culturally appropriate, engaging workshops to ensure the participants learnt the basics of marketing but also had a chance to role play their individual ‘elevator pitches’ in a number of mock settings. It was lots of fun and the feedback from the participants has been incredible. This has been our most interactive and practical workshop this year. Thank you to Effie and Small Chilli Marketing it’s been fantastic working with you!”
