What makes the Cockatoo House approach

so, well... unique?

For starters, I've channelled the brass and brash of the Cockatoo. But it's not just me and a team of galahs here. Working in both commercial and non-for-profit sectors has taught me that most businesses and organisations struggle to explain what they do in a way that attracts their ideal customers. Being an unashamed story-teller myself, I've long realised the power of a good story, with a clear message. So I've used this combination of skills, to develop a bullet-proof system to create your Unique Brand Story, so you can connect directly with your market, and grow your business.

Tamara has done a mountain of work for us in the digital marketing space, especially in the area of Facebook ads, video and written content and Messenger advertising.


She has helped our franchises achieve extraordinary sales figures and has grown our base revenue by over 140% in the past 12 months alone.


Not only is she great at her craft but she is a pleasure to deal with and I cannot recommend her services highly enough. Thanks for everything to date Tamara.

Tamara Hogan has been invaluable in managing the marketing of our brands in consultation with us, coordinating all of our digital marketing campaigns. She has a strong emphasis on measuring results, keeping a close eye on the data and “the numbers,” to see what is working. We have used this information to find a daily /weekly /monthly spend that suits our budget and delivers results. We have no hesitation to recommend Tamara’s services, in any capacity, which is evidenced by the fact that she continues work with us to advance our business.

We went through two separate brand strategists to launch a new product, before finally turning to Tamara. She got our brief, pulled the numerous elements together, and created a wholly unique brand story in record time. We've used this branding ever since.

I engaged a branding strategist to develop a promotional campaign for our development. In short, I was left frustrated and unimpressed. Next stop? Tamara. She whipped our promotion into shape, in record time. Seriously, you want her in your corner.

Hi, I'm Tamara, and I'm not going to lie, I think Cockatoos are cool. Yes, they're noisy little suckers, but who can resist their conviction, their panache, and their oh-so-showy head-piece? Cockatoos are storytellers of old, doing their 'thang' with a singular uniqueness. In short, they are a perfect source of inspiration for any Creative, Business or Marketer worth their salt. When it comes to creating the ultimate brand platform for you business, I make-like-a-Cockatoo. I interweave your past and present skills and performance, truly 'hear' your brief, and create your Unique Brand Story. Because let's put our feathers on the table here; in this world of online smoke and noisy traffic, it's your story that sells.

Stories ARE the organisation

Storytelling is considered a ‘hot trend’ for modern-day marketers, and yet, storytelling is as old as the hills and has LONG been used in advertising. (No doubt homo sapiens used ‘story’ to sell woolly-mammoth biltong and sabre tooth cat furs waaay back when. “I’m telling you Uud, it was THIIIIS BIG!”) But I digress. Stories. […]
