City of Whittlesea

“Effie and the team at Small Chilli assisted in all aspects of the Northern Multicultural Small Business Awards, from the planning right through to the execution of the awards event.  Small Chilli worked in collaboration with the Brotherhood of St Laurence and Whittlesea City Council to formulate the award program and Small Chilli Marketing was specifically responsible for the marketing of this event, including the development of logos, websites, flyers, social media presence, presentation slides, and the promotional videos. This was even more important that it was done professionally as this was the inaugural event and all aspects were for the first time.They also helped to support the judging process that I was leading by organising all the appointments for the judges and providing management support.”

“Their attention to detail and commitment to the project produced a stand out event that was sold out.  I commend them on their professional and personal approach and have no hesitation in recommending their services.”

The team at Small Chilli really listen to your business needs – not just from a marketing perspective but from a holistic viewpoint. They have assisted us to build our website, customer video portal and executed a number of Facebook Advertising campaigns for us and we’ve seen a  significant increase in our enrolments as a result. In fact Small Chilli achieved a fantastic 1,500% ROI on our Facebook Advertising campaign and we are so pleased with the results.

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.”

  • Increase client engagement,
  • Improve customer service,
  • Encourage more bookings and increase sales.

I have found Effie to be easy to deal with, professional and able to guide me through a field of expertise that does not come naturally to me. I would not hesitate recommending the services of Small Chilli Marketing to other business owners looking for ways to attract more customers, retain existing customers or improve their marketing and communication efforts”.

Brotherhood of St. Laurence

“Here at the Brotherhood of St Laurence we run the program ‘Stepping Stones to Small Business’. This program is for women from refugee, migrant and asylum seeker backgrounds. As part of our marketing workshops series we were fortunate enough to have Small Chilli Marketing come to our courses in Brimbank, Whittlesea and Hume to run a ‘Crafting your Elevator Pitch’ workshop.

Effie made incredible connections with the participants and delivered the workshops in a professional yet friendly manner. Women who attended the workshops all have English as their second language so can find it confronting to pitch their businesses in both formal and informal settings. With this in mind, Small Chilli Marketing tailored a workshop to ensure the participants learnt the basics of marketing but also had a chance to role play their ‘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 its been great working with you!”
