QuickBooks Campaign Urges You to do ‘Business Differently’

“Rather than just a top-down approach, we worked as a single global creative team.”


Intuit, the global financial technology platform that makes Intuit TurboTax, Credit Karma, QuickBooks, and Mailchimp, has launched a campaign for its new ‘Business Differently’ brand platform in Australia. According to the brand, the campaign aims to challenge the traditional views of business success in Australia, with the QuickBooks platform offering support to small businesses dealing with admin burdens.

The campaign is set to go live across TV, radio, social, digital and earned media from Monday, 4 March and will be rolled out by QuickBooks’ integrated agency village comprising creative agency R/GA, media agency Avenue C, and PR agency Edelman Australia.

The ‘Business Differently’ campaign is teaming up with Australian comedian Matt Okine, to create ‘The Okine Hotline’. The hotline will go beyond the surface, providing a platform to share real stories that illustrate the genuine impact of business admin on individuals.


Jane Merrick, Marketing Director at Intuit QuickBooks, said: “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.”

Victoria Curro, Managing Director, R/GA Australia says: “Collaborating with teams from FCB US, UK and Canada, we were able to create a powerful brand platform that resonates in every market.

Rather than just a top-down approach, we worked as a single global creative team. 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 comments: “We’ve loved being a part of QuickBooks agency village to launch their latest brand campaign, which is a huge reflection of the collective efforts of genuine collaboration between client and agency village. Our media strategy focuses on leveraging the highest attention media moments so creative cut-through to an extremely busy business decision maker is maximised. We look forward to seeing the campaign in-market.”

Tom Robinson, CEO, Edelman Australia, adds: “We are proud to have partnered on this multi-agency campaign with Intuit QuickBooks. Each agency brings its unique strengths across the creative, strategic and digital space to deliver a campaign that through real life story telling truly delivers an exceptional brand experience. We are excited to see the campaign launch.”
