Financial technology platform Intuit  today launched its new ‘Business Differently’ brand platform in Australia.

The integrated campaign challenges traditional views of business success in Australia, with the QuickBooks platform offering support to small businesses grappling with admin burdens.  

The QuickBooks campaign showcases Australian business owners triumphing on their own terms. The whimsical tales playfully highlight how the QuickBooks’ mobile app becomes their secret weapon, skillfully navigating the intricacies of business to save them time, while they’re on the go.

The campaign goes live today across TV, radio, social, digital and earned media. It is rolled out by QuickBooks’ integrated agency village comprising creative agency R/GA, media agency Avenue C and PR agency Edelman Australia.

QuickBooks is teaming up with much-loved Australian comedian Matt Okine, to create The Okine Hotline. The fun and engaging hotline will go beyond the surface, providing a platform to share real stories that illustrate the genuine impact of business admin on individuals, and underscoring how QuickBooks is poised to redefine the journey to success for small business owners.

“The challenge for our agency partners was to talk to the real local heroes – Australian SMBs – ensuring that we could clearly articulate QuickBooks’ brand role to this audience in a different way," says Jane Merrick, Marketing Director at Intuit QuickBooks.

"Together with our agency partners R/GA, Avenue C and Edelman, we have created an exciting campaign that supports our global brand platform, ‘Business Differently’, but is designed to resonate locally. By portraying Australian SMB owners using the QuickBooks mobile app while working on the go, we’re showing SMBs a better way to do business admin and gain precious time back in their lives.”

Victoria Curro, managing director, R/GA Australia, says a powerful brand platform that resonates in every market was created by collaborating with teams from FCB US, UK and Canada.

"Rather than just a top-down approach, we worked as a single global creative team," says Curro.

"An innovative way of working which has helped us land a solution that is truly global but can flex to local conditions and needs - we're excited to bring it to market for QuickBooks in Australia.”

Will Chapman, managing partner, Avenue C, says the agency loved being a part of QuickBooks agency village to launch the latest brand campaign.

"Our media strategy focuses on leveraging the highest attention media moments so creative cut-through to an extremely busy business decision maker is maximised," says Chapman. "We look forward to seeing the campaign in-market.”
