Marina Garbuio Digital Marketing Strategist

Hi, I’m Marina Garbuio – fearless leader of Motivating Marketing. Being a Digital and Social Media Marketing Strategist,  I help ambitious business owners and marketing managers take control of their digital and social media marketing, in order grow their customer base and increase conversions.  

Whether it is smart marketing strategy creation, easy-to-understand training or hands on marketing management, you have access to leading-edge expertise. My team and I help you implement the latest marketing practices to your unique business to elevate your brand identity, create more personal business relationships while generating honourable revenue.

Because let’s get real here – successful marketing requires lots of different moving parts, working in unison to deliver both short-term and long-term results, to create a business that can scale and be sustainable. 

Many business owners make the mistake of leaving their marketing to chance or treat it as an afterthought.  Some try to tackle the individual moving parts one random piece at a time.   Some implement a social media strategy here, an email campaign over there or post 55 Instagram graphics with ground-breaking quotes.  However, this is rarely effective and sucks up valuable time and resources.

My team and I understand you need a professional digital and social media marketing strategy that underpins and guides every single marketing activity you invest in.

Creating a solid foundation for your business and your marketing is what will set you up to succeed, for the long haul

about marina garbuio

I’ve been a Digital and Social Media Strategist 1for the last 5 years (soon to be 16 years). Prior to this, I dealt with offline marketing (TV, radio, catalogues, press etc…) for another 10 years.

25 + years all up.

I’ve watched the internet go from dial-up frustration to 5G fast.

I became a mum when Facebook was a mere baby. Now, Facebook has developed into a turbulent teen and all the angst that comes with it (I know – I have a teen son and a daughter quickly following in his huge footsteps).

I’ve seen TV advertising evolve into YouTube sensations and marketing re-inventing itself over and over to appeal and remain relevant.

I’m based in Melbourne (Australia), with a focus on the Australian target audience.

Crazy how time flies.


So, what value can I share with you?

My portfolio includes over two decades of business and marketing, experience including 15 years expertise in social media

I teach Digital Marketing and Marketing Principles at tertiary level – including University and hands-on TAFE

I consult micro, small, medium and large sized businesses on both a local and global scale, across a diverse number of industries

I conduct regular workshops and short courses on Digital and Social Media Strategy,  Facebook/Instagram Advertising and Email Marketing & Funnels

I educate and mentor CEO’s, in-house digital and marketing managers, entrepreneurs and agency staff members

 And it doesn’t stop there.

I’ve also been a keynote speaker at the Department of Education (DET) presenting digital marketing insights and have been invited into various businesses to conduct digital workshops and training.

By the time business owners and people working in the marketing field come to me, they are despondent and overwhelmed. I enlighten them with knowledge, understanding and digestible plans of marketing action that they can implement (or we can manage for them).

Knowledge is power. The power to gain brand awareness, increase conversion and sales as well as build a solid community network.
