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.

Let’s face it, transformation is messy. Every business is different, with a set of specific challenges based on a mixture of external (the market, competitors, regulation) and internal factors (technology, people and process investments over time).

Building a human-curated brand

If the FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) sector and their measured worth are the final argument for the successful 21st Century model, then they are beyond reproach. Fine-tuning masses of algorithms to reduce human touchpoints and deliver wild returns to investors—all with workforces infinitesimally small compared to the giants of the 20th Century—has been proven out.
