Why we exist

Every brand has an origin story and Marketing to Families was born by necessity, as clients who trust us and our experience in the family market started requesting more and more marketing advice and services using our specialist team.

We started out as a parenting magazine in 2007. PakMag is a monthly parents and kids magazine, and the number one influencer of the family market in North Queensland. From that original product we have grown to include other publications including the NQ Baby and Toddler Guide, the Family Fun Guide as well as many custom publications for our clients.

As our own brand grew, so did our team and so did the need to expand and hire specialists who could address our client’s marketing needs – leading to the natural creation of Marketing to Families.

Now, we’re mostly referred to as M2F, still paying homage to our roots, but acknowledging we do more than market to families. Don’t get us wrong… that is a huge specialty of ours, but no matter what your business is, or who you’d like to target – we can help.

We are a full service marketing agency, where you and your business are our priority.

We know how hard you have worked to build your business and we want that hard work to pay off with strategic and comprehensive marketing to help people see you, to become familiar with your brand and to choose you over your competitors.
Our team includes market researchers, digital experts, content creators, copywriters, podcasters, graphic designers and event coordinators.

We have worked with hundreds of brands and effectively connected them to their target market. We understand that every business is unique.

Schedule a free 15 minute discovery conversation with us so we can get an outline of what your business needs to engage with your audience. We work with clients all over the globe, and are only a call or zoom chat away to help you solidify your marketing strategy. Your business is literally our business and we’d love to help you achieve your marketing goals.

Remember – it’s not the best product that wins, it’s the best marketing.
