On Brand Marketing Communications  In The Right Order, Through The Right Channel = Increased Revenue.

Hello! My Name is Julie Comber

I have been in Marketing my entire career, including managing some of New Zealand’s iconic and well known brands: Freshup Fruit Juice, Wattie’s, Pumpkin Patch, Shiseido, Life Pharmacy & Instant Kiwi.

It’s a broad variety across corporate FMCG, Retail, Beauty & the Government Regulated Gaming Industry.

When our second child was born, I chose not to return to the pressure of corporate, and started my own Retail facing Beauty Business.

Actually, without intending to, I disrupted the industry. I think outside of the square. I can’t help it – it’s just how my brain works. 

I’d love to introduce you to Essential Media. 

In creating Essential Media in 2015, I wanted to bring together the classic marketing strategy skills learned in years of corporate marketing management, where I grew my career – with nimble digital skills I learned while on the ground running a local business. Creating a digital footprint is easy once you know how to do it, and I love helping business owners hit the lightbulb moments when it all makes sense (and it does).

My global connections are many – what I am not familiar with or expert in myself, I can quickly gain access to, at a high level of expertise.

You’re probably closer than you think to the success you want. 

Space in my calendar is limited. I no longer offer ‘done for you’ services, but I do love to work with proactive business owners who want to learn the skills and have back-up if they get stuck. Digital Marketing shifts and changes all the time!

I’d love for you to connect and see if we are a good fit.

 You are welcome to join my free Facebook Group From Zero to Digital Superhero.

The honest truth is that I went into Marketing at the beginning of my career because I wanted a company car. I’m not going to lie, it’s fun! Understanding and predicting human behaviour is key, and I am good at that.

Over the years, and the invention of ‘Digital Marketing’ I have worked alongside some of the most talented ‘Sales Funnel’ experts in the world – created campaigns for Travel, HR & Recruitment, various E-Comm businesses. I learned Facebook Ads (now Meta), Pinterest, Google Search & Google Shopping with my own brands & my own sites. I have my own E-Commerce sites, trading in 6 figures, and unlike many service providers, I walk the talk.

Jackie Procter – Jackie Procter Copywriter

“I recently had a one on one session with Julie for help with my Facebook ads. Her help was fantastic and I am so pleased I made the investment with her because now I can stop wasting money on ads that do not work in the best possible way for my business.
The information she gave me has given me a much better chance of spending my money to find a more targeted audience who are far more likely to buy from me. Thank you very much for your help!”

“My one-hour session with Julie covering my Facebook ads and Google Adwords set up was invaluable! It was great to hear I was on the right track, and she provided a number of tips and tricks to help me get my ads running better and more cost-effectively. Julie also had some great advice around landing pages and advertising strategies. The session was definitely well worth the money!”
