Decades move quickly at Tough Cookie Marketing, it feels like just a few years ago that we opened in 2012 with a goal to specifically support service-led businesses with accessible marketing support and creative, cost-effective solutions for growth in profit and reputation.


Tough Cookie is devoted to championing businesses. We believe in generosity, sharing a great idea, and helping people to have the most successful work and business life they can.

We’re here for you. From ongoing retainers, set contracts or quick tasks, just tell us what you need and we will make it happen. We obsessively seek your point of difference and will help to share it with the world. We believe in independence and are happy to guide you to take control of your own marketing activities for long-term success.

We want you to stand out in the crowd and be proud of your unique story. We’re devoted to our people and encourage you to think big, let’s make it happen together.

Tough Cookie works in partnership with a variety of organisations, varying in size and services across many sectors, including hospitality, tourism, retail, professional services, not-for-profit, community and events. We love to link up good people and creating new opportunities for all. Our team has extensive experience in business operations, marketing, design, words, digital and event management.

Our nine awesome humans share with our clients their artistic, strategic and innovative talents, each bizarrely over-committed to delivering above and beyond results (like attracts like right?).
