About Us
Intrinsic Marketing - About Maria

Hello there, Welcome

I'm Maria

I really appreciate you being here to learn more about me and Intrinsic Marketing. In 2010, I founded Intrinsic Marketing after starting my family and the corporate world no longer aligned with my values.

I was already supporting many people in my network with branding and marketing in my own time and decided to take the plunge into business. Little did I know what I was in for! However, the one thing I loved to do was make marketing accessible to small businesses. It’s still my passion today.

The first thing you should know is that when you work with Intrinsic Marketing, you work directly with me. If there is something that falls outside my area of expertise, I partner with a hand selected team of professionals, in a very transparent way, to achieve the best results for your business.

What I love most, is to work alongside people who inspire me and are passionate about what they do and have to offer. Most of my work comes from referrals (people who have worked with me or connections from my professional network) which I find incredibly humbling and the ultimate compliment.

I hope to work with you and see your business grow! If you feel overwhelmed by marketing your business or just don’t know where to begin, let’s connect. Book a 30 minute marketing chat with me to explore how we could work together to achieve your marketing goals.

I’m here to help you – marketing made easy!

Intrinsic Marketing - Things I Love

Things I love...

On a more personal note, these are the things I adore; the things I cannot live without.

My Inner Circle:
Connection is very important to me. My inner circle is made up of my nearest and dearest people – my hubby, kids, family, special friends and my little pooch Milo!
Coffee:
I cannot start my day without a coffee and am known to have a coffee addiction. After all, I live in Melbourne – the coffee capital of the world!
Nature:
It calms and inspires me. I look at the tiniest of details (colours, textures, patterns) and am completely in awe of what mother nature creates.
How Clients Describe Me...

Like so many other business owners, I find it uncomfortable writing about myself. So, I asked some of my clients how they would describe me. Here’s what they shared…

  • 110% reliable. Maria has never let me down.
  • Maria is supportive, always open to listening.
  • Helpful without being intrusive. She is intuitive and accessible.
  • Maria is genuine, proactive, transparent, punctual and understands marketing in today’s world.
  • Friendly, honest, never says it cannot be done.
  • We find Maria to be very easy to work with, excellent communication skills.
  • Professionally – reliable, fast, value. Personally – approachable, helpful and innovative.
  • Maria is very in tune in what I needed. She was able to communicate the information in ways that was accessible to me and allowed the task to feel manageable.

Professional Experience

Prior to founding Intrinsic Marketing in 2010, I worked in marketing roles in the corporate sector. I have always had a natural affinity for marketing and a creative flair so intuitively fell into marketing roles early in my career. The task of developing engaging and creative marketing communications for internal and external stakeholders always found their way to my desk.

My corporate career included all aspects of marketing, design, advertising, internal and external communications, launches, local and interstate events, sponsorships, international conferences and exhibitions, promotional material, liaising and coordinating suppliers for photography, video, voice overs, stand design and lots more.

More recently, I have enjoyed being a Guest Lecturer and Tutor at Swinburne University (Search, Social Media Marketing) and working with the students who will lead us into the future!

  • Diploma of Marketing
  • Diploma of Business
  • Over 20 years of hands-on marketing and design experience.
