Welcome to Talked About Marketing

Being a founder or a leader in business is demanding and rewarding, even though sometimes it can take over your life. We get it. We’ve seen the story repeated thousands of times over the past 20+ years. Our Adelaide-based marketing consultancy is here to be your fresh set of eyes, your sounding board, your trusted advisor, as you get clarity once again so you and your enterprise can thrive.

Steve Davis, the founder of Talked About Marketing, has a passion for supporting South Australia through his marketing workshops and consulting, through providing strategic and entertaining MC duties at events, co-presenting educational planning days with David Olney, and also through podcasting. His passion project, The Adelaide Show Podcast, has been running since 2013, picking up Silver for Best Interview Podcast in Australia, and with colleague, David Olney, he creates Talking About Marketing, a short, fortnightly podcast created precisely for you. No gimmicks, no selling, just helpful content because marketing should always make the world a better place!

There's only one thing worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about - Oscar Wilde. This quote is what our marketing consultancy is named after, Talked About Marketing Adelaide

The importance of branding

Has your small business got an easy to understand branding strategy? Have you captured your brand values and “style” in one place, to guide you as you and your team interact with clients, customers, and the community? While some people think only big firms need to have a strong brand, it’s small businesses that benefit most. Take a look at our approach to see if it works for you.

Small business websites and SEO

Every business, organisation, or enterprise needs to grow sales. And we believe the foundation for this exercise is a professional website. And we have the experience and technology to craft a website for almost any budget, while focussing on your specific site goals such as making bookings, setting appointments, buying tickets, to attracting new members or donations. 

Do you need a marketing agency?

Many small business owners successfully work with marketing agencies but the trick is finding a firm that’s the right fit. Take Talked About Marketing for example (seeing you’re on our website). Our chief consultants, Steve Davis and David Olney, both of years of experience in consulting; from solopreneurs to corporations. We’re flexible. Click through to learn more about our approach.

We're your partners, not vendors

We believe that business IS personal. That means when you work with us, we care. We care about your business goals and we care about you as a fellow human. 

In short, we’re on your side to help you make the right decisions for your business as your trusted advisors. We’re not here to just sell stuff to you.

And as you’ll see when you meet us in workshops, we’ll listen to your questions, ask some more, and then tailor our answers and advice to meet your needs as best as we can.

Oh, you’ll probably have some laughs too. There’s a robust sense of humour folded into the Talked About Marketing DNA.
