Lauren Tanfield, Manager, Communications, Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect)
Refreshing a brand is never easy; when the brand is synonymous with the delivery of trusted, critical support services, there is added pressure. We were delighted when a local agency, Make It Happen, undertook our brand refresh as a pro-bono project, while still taking the time to fully understand our rationale for change – to both reflect a new vision, mission and values statement, and to equip us with a new logo device that would work across print, digital, signage and apparel. Read more…
The newly designed logo ticked all our boxes, showcasing a fresh, modern and more ‘human’ image for our brand. Applied across a wide range of assets – from corporate stationery to signage and apparel – our new identity was projected on a variety of print-based platforms. Equipping our team with templates, Make It Happen ensured we were able to maintain consistency and have greater control of our brand internally – allowing us to benefit from professional design, with the ability to use this independently.Close
Sarah Husbands, Marketing Director, Avaya
Avaya engaged Make it Happen to support a 6 city road-show around Australia and New Zealand.

Engaging Make it Happen allowed me to focus on delivering the best possible show for our customers knowing that the invitation process and registration handling were being expertly covered.
Make it Happen were professional, timely and accurate and the road-show was a resounding success.Close

Christopher Bertram, Sales Manager, Iocane Pty Ltd
Iocane designs, integrates and supports mission critical information systems, often working in partnership with IBM. Iocane and IBM recently undertook two direct marketing campaigns focused on providing solutions that enable customers to run their information systems more efficiently in tougher economic conditions, whilst addressing the transition to more environmentally sound technology. Read more…
These campaigns were Iocane’s first foray into direct marketing. Make It Happen was chosen to manage both campaigns and we were delighted with our choice. We found Make It Happen’s professional staff highly knowledgeable and willing to share that knowledge, offering us valuable advice as “first timers”.
During the campaigns, we were consistently updated with progress on the many opportunities that were created and followed up, giving Iocane new markets filled with additional business opportunities.
Make It Happen surpassed all our expectations; I highly recommend them to run your marketing campaigns.
Following several introductory interviews with a selection of agencies – all of which were of a high calibre – Make It Happen set themselves apart with their creative yet grounded approach to our requirements. Our business lends itself to a more conservative approach and it was important that we found a partner who understood our business framework and values – Make It Happen just gets it!
I have had the pleasure of working closely with MIH on several projects since our first meeting – I find the success lies in MIHs’ ability to draw on their extensive knowledge and experience whilst being committed to understanding our objectives – not only delivering in line with requirements but adding creativity, value and expertise to the solution.
MIH have a customer-driven focus and are dedicated and committed to the overall success of the project – even when we have requested very tight deadlines! Attentive and personable in every respect – I look forward to a continued partnership with MIH.Close
Lynn Card, CEO, Xavier Children’s Support Network
With our website and corporate identity both in need of a contemporary update – but not knowing how to get started or what to expect – Make It Happen were able to come on board and step us through the entire process.A complete refresh of our online and offline identity – including website and social media, service flyers, staff name badges, signage, and corporate stationery– helped us modernise our brand image, while the employment section on our website transformed the way we manage recruitment.

Ian Thomas, Marketing Manager, Tardis Services
Tardis Services wasn’t always a marketing-focussed organisation, but our first engagements with Make It Happen, back in 2005, were so successful and generated so many leads that we were converted. Read more…
Since then Make It Happen has taken on the role of our virtual marketing department – where we have the ability to choose our marketing agency, we choose Make It Happen. External forces sometimes require us to work with other marketing partners; we always come back to Make It Happen.
They don’t just provide marketing services; their strategy and guidance around all matters marketing have been invaluable in building pipeline for us as a sales-driven organisation. They understand us, they understand our market and they understand that we come to them whenever we need their services – they never force themselves or their ideas onto us.
As a result of working with Make It Happen, we now have a structured communications process with our customers and prospects, we have outstanding material to work with and we know that Make It Happen will nurture our contacts who are not yet ready to buy so that we can focus our sales efforts where they bring us the best returns.
I look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Make It Happen indefinitely.Close

Nick Thomas, Chief Executive Officer, Wunan Foundation
Knowing where to start – and what needs to be done to get started – can be a real road block when it comes to updating your website. So when the agency takes the initiative and has the willingness to drive you to action, the positives for change far outweigh the negatives. Read more…
Rachel McCusker, Project Coordinator, Innogence Ltd
Having worked with Make It Happen in the past, I had no hesitation in recently briefing them to refresh the Innogence website and corporate communications. I have been consistently impressed by MIH’s innovative dedication to the project and the high standard of work they deliver. Read more…
Steve Roddick, AV Cranes Australia Pty Ltd
We have engaged Make It Happen’s services across a wide range of projects, including corporate identity, website design and development, SEO, and print collateral; I can say without reservation that MIH have exceeded my expectations in every aspect of these projects.
Following our new website, MIH conducted a lead generation campaign in which over 400 potential crane users were contacted. Our first order from this campaign is already underway – with a value of around $60,000 and GP of 25% – and I expect the campaign will have paid for itself within six months.
If you are a business owner and want to make the absolute maximum out of your marketing budget I can wholeheartedly recommend you talk to Gail and then test her team. I will be using MIH for many years to follow.
