College of Law - Building a Community for Queensland

To launch 2013, College of Law Queensland invited our Principal Consultant and Managing Director, Rebecca Wilson, to inspire their alumni to engage in nontraditional, creative endeavours that will bring value to their important relationships.

Rebecca Wilson speaking Stretch Marketing
To do this, we told the story of Flood Discounts, a community Rebecca co-founded in the aftermath of the 2011 Queensland Floods in response to the early post-flood expectation that nearly 50% of victims would be denied the ability to claim on their insurance. The community rallied around the free web listing where businesses could post discounts on a wide range of products and services needed to help victims to rebuild their lives, homes and businesses. Through the Flood Discounts site, Rebecca built a community to help the community, which is an extraordinarily powerful thing to do and something from which incredibly valuable marketing and business development lessons were learned.

The awards are to be held as a part of the Queensland Week celebrations in Brisbane.  Similar awards ceremonies are being held throughout the state to celebrate the efforts of flood volunteers and heroes.  

"We've loved being able to use our marketing and web skills to make a difference to some of the people affected in the floods, and we're pleased to see people making good use of the discounts on offer," said Rebecca.  

"But the real thanks should go to those offering significant discounts to Flooded Residents to help them get back on their feet - they are the ones really helping people on a tangible level, especially when so little financial support has been made available to flood victims" she said.

Referrals Talk Volumes

Charter_Mag_Mar_2011_p1Read our article, Referrals Talk Volumes:  Building referrals is the most affordable marketing strategy for Accountants.  As published in the March 2011 edition of national Institute of Chartered Accountants' magazine Charter.  

We are taught early in our business degrees that we can build a business by being a technical expert, hanging a shingle and waiting for clients to walk through the door.  Many Professional Service providers all throughout Australia diligently fulfil their qualifications, maintain their professional development and serve the customers that trip over their businesses.   They do OK.  But with well-targeted marketing, you can do better.    You can in fact build your business around the market that you want to work for, and have them drive your customers to you by referral.
