MYOB Launches Fun Over-the-Top Campaign via Howatson+Company

“Believing turned my small business into… a medium business.”





Exit Films


MYOB has launched a new integrated communications and creative platform, led by Howatson+Company, highlighting how MYOB can help businesses reach their full potential… to the power of infinity.

That’s quite a pitch, and Howatson+Company has created a fun, at times over-the-top ad to get the point across.

Directed by Stefan Hunt, the spots follow a business owner as she loses herself in an inspirational business presentation. In another, she learns how running all her business in one places and how the benefits are infiniteeeeeee.


Gavin Chimes, executive creative director at Howatson+Company: “MYOBelieve is a long-tail platform that smashes preconceptions of MYOB as your mum and dad’s accounting software, and relaunches the brand as a modern, innovative, slightly outrageous business management solution. One that can’t be ignored.”

Holly Rollo, chief marketing officer, MYOB said: “MYOB is Australia’s original tech unicorn. We’ve been part of the fabric of doing business in Australia and New Zealand for more than 30 years, which means we have exceptional local expertise and knowledge of local businesses, inside and out.

“But over the last several years, MYOB gone through an enormous transformation. We have invested in the development of a next-generation technology platform and created a highly curated cloud-based experience wrapped around the most critical business workflows. We know how important it is for business owners and operators to have these workflows connected and working seamlessly together – and, without this, the impacts can be costly, time consuming and performance limiting.”
