Who we are

At Blaze Marketing, we are a passionate creative team of smart, switched-on operators with fresh ideas, a can-do attitude and a talent for making things happen.

As senior award-winning marketers that have worked as directors and senior managers across a variety of industries, we bring to the table a strong technical knowledge base and ability to quickly understand your business at a deeper level. This translates into cut-through, technically accurate marketing rather than surface level fluff pieces to deliver smarter messaging and drive better results.

Because we’ve sat on your side of the desk, we understand business pressures and how to navigate different systems, people and processes to hit the ground running, get the job done and meet your objectives.

You’ll always get an extra 10% or more from us as we take pride in our work, so we go above and beyond to make your marketing successful.

We don’t work as another supplier, we work as part of your team – Your Marketing Department.
