About Us

This isn't about us - it's about you

Before we talk about us, let's talk a little about you.
You want to be a successful marketer.
You might be a business owner. Or you might be working in a marketing department.
You've Googled 'marketing strategy' or 'marketing strategy examples'. Maybe even 'what is it or how do I do it?'
You've probably downloaded a template, or have one developed by head office.
You started to fill in all the boxes, but it seems endless, and it certainly doesn't seem like fun.
But let's say you stick with it and complete the template.

Now what?

Well, no matter how well you filled in those boxes, nothing happens until you bring it to life.
For most marketers, even experienced ones, this is the most challenging part. But please don't give up because can also be (and should be) the most fun and rewarding part of the process.

It's about you

Getting beyond the template

We've got nothing against templates, we use them all the time.
But we like simplicity, and we like emotional engagement, and most of the templates we see are lengthy, dry and rational.
Most importantly, they seem to be more focused on inputs instead of outputs.


If you're looking to make a difference with your product or service, then you also have to act differently to the bland brands. And that starts with going beyond the template.

This is about bringing those words on a page to life in the most inspiring way.

And that's where we can help.

What we do

Marketing strategy - simplified and demystified

In case it wasn't obvious by now, we help brands and businesses develop their  strategies and bring them to life.

We simplify and demystify the process - even digital marketing.
We help turn the rational into the emotional. And we help clients find a position in their customer's mind and a place in their heart - because you can only be successful if you deliver on both.

We bridge the gap between marketing strategy and creative execution.

We help you develop messages that matter for those that care.

How we do it

We could talk about a proprietary multi-step process, or a marketing strategy development modelling tool - we do have lots at our disposal.

But to be honest, every client and the challenge they face is different. We find the most useful tool is to listen. 

Only then will we immerse ourselves in the market or problem and help you develop simple, effective strategic solutions.

We listen

Our story - who we are

Doug Robb, Director

Doug Robb, Director

Don’t give them what they want. Give them what they never dreamed possible.
Orson Welles

Communovate was established in January 2002. The name is simply a 'mash up' of Communicate and Innovate. 

Innovation is a word that can be interpreted in many ways. For us, it simply means  delivering our clients' messages in a new, interesting and more impactful way - whether that be harnessing traditional or digital communication methods. There was (and still is) a 'sea of sameness' surrounding marketing strategies and messaging.

You've got a story to tell, a brand or service to sell or a worthy cause that needs greater awareness.

We believe that story deserves to be told in the most effective way, to the people that matter most to your business of organisation.

We seek clients who want to make a greater impact. Just like Orson Welles suggested...
