Press play on your passion
Small business marketing and digital solutions to help you chase your dreams sooner
You need a different approach
– give you advice that won’t benefit your business
– sell you services you don’t need
– speak to you in complicated ‘tech’ language designed to confuse you
– dress in uncomfortably fitted suits to impress you
– look at the big picture
– charge what we are worth
– charge prices that reflect the budgets of small businesses
– care about the customer, the process and the outcome
– celebrate in all our client’s successes
Inside the Factory
We are blessed to call COLAB 4010 our home.
With people who are just as warm and inviting as the surroundings,
we count ourselves very lucky.
Our super-charged powers
We will spare you the traditional boring resume style bios and let you know the important basics:
We are experts in building small businesses from the ground up, which means we get what it’s like to be you. We have a collective experience working with over 200 businesses.
We did not learn our skills watching YouTube videos, we learnt them in the real world – with clients like you. We are flexible, adaptive and deep-down we’re just crazy-awesome problem solvers.
Because we are honest in our approach to life, work and everything in-between, we won’t lie to you about what we can do either. If you come to us because Google said you need ads – we’ll let you know Google is just trying to take your money.
We love to create kick-ass brands which stand out in the crowd. We build functional, beautiful, and Google-friendly websites which are made to sell your products and services. Once the foundations are in place, we are on the journey with you, giving free advise when it’s needed to ensure you continue to grow.
Why small business matters
Did you know that small businesses in Australia represent 33% of the Australian GDP. Not impressed? That is equivalent to $343 billion a year. Add to that that 33% of those businesses are women led and BOOM! By starting a business you just joined one of the fastest growing sectors in the country. Now that is something to be proud of.
The word on the
Don’t just take it from us. Here’s some well-deserved words from people who have put their business image in our hands and been impressed. If you’d like to check out our equally bad reviews (hint: there are none), Google and Facebook are a great place to start.
“I love working with the Start Factory Crew. They are our number one go to for all our website and marketing needs for our businesses. And have been for last three years. The service is personable, reliable and professional.
“We engaged Start Factory to complete some maintenance and renew our SSL certificate which had expired. Our experience has been fantastic and not only did they fix up the issues, they also identified more errors we weren’t aware of and fixed those as well. The website is also running faster and has more effects and is visually more appealing than it was previously. We will continue to use Start Factory to complete more improvements to the website, an upgrade in months to come and ongoing maintenance. We are happy with the great communication, thoroughness and responsiveness and look forward to an ongoing business relationship.”
“I’m so pleased that I found Start Factory, not only did they talk to me in a language that I could understand their ideas and feedback was great too. I now consider Start Factory an important partner in my business journey and will definitely be using them again.”
Just cos we’re a factory doesn’t mean you’ll encounter robots
We’d like to invite you to enjoy a coffee or tea (or cold-pressed-green-juice if that’s your thing) and get to know us. We want to know about your business, or business idea and we will happily run you through the next steps you need. Go ahead and contact others who offer our services, we’ll see you in a month when you realised you should have gone with us all along.
