Engineers Australia partners with Mahlab on content marketing strategy

Australia’s largest engineering organisation scraps their in-house communications strategy in favour of a content marketing agency

After almost 40 years of running its communications in-house, Engineers Australia (EA) has put its content marketing strategy into the hands of content agency, Mahlab Media.

Joining the ever-increasing trend of organisations upping the ante and outsourcing their content marketing needs, Mahlab Media is set to develop an integrated content strategy for EA that includes the re-launch of Engineers Australia’s monthly member magazine and significant investment in new digital channels and content.

“At a time of ever-increasing challenge for all professional associations to demonstrate their continuing relevance to members, we have adopted a new set of strategic priorities and a fresh vision for our professional association,” said Engineers Australia CEO, Stephen Durkin.

“With Mahlab Media as our new content partner, we are confident of achieving that vision.”

Mahlab Media won the contract after a competitive pitch process, including a full review of Engineers Australia’s current structure to identify opportunities for growth and efficiency.

The agency claimed the new partnership is set to build the world's largest engineering-focused content marketing program, which will cater for the organisation's 100,000+ members.

“Our ambition for Engineers Australia is to produce outstanding content that delivers on Engineers Australia’s strategic objectives and helps them grow,” said Mahlab Media managing director, Bobbi Mahlab.

They want to discover, research, evaluate, and purchase on their preferred channel. Give them that option, and they’re more likely to choose you. That’s the whole point behind the multi-channel approach.

People in vegan houses shouldn't throw bacon

Picture this. You’re at a Gourmerican burger joint chomping a cheeseburger, when an outspoken vegan friend starts preaching that you’re killing the planet. Last week, that same vegan downed a pricey glass of pinot before their flight to a far-flung destination, armed with their strongest mossie repellant and first aid kit. Anything amiss?
