Social Media Marketing

Having a website that looks great is one thing but having one that WORKS for your business is the big one. Millions of lines of code are written everyday, this is the DNA of websites and if one space is in the wrong place, your website might not perform its best or worst crash entirely. This is where it pays to have a professional managing your website. Not only can we improve your website and bring you to the forefront of internet sales but we know what those millions of lines of gobblygook (code) mean.

Warren Acutt Manager

Marketing has been my field now for 29 years. A decision to do Marketing in my Business Degree led me away from a career in accounting to a field that creates the cash accountants get to count. Feeling limited in what I could offer clients as an employee I started Advertising Planning & Promotions in 1994. The objective to be a one stop shop for effective marketing solutions. Events - sport, community, cultural, retail; is our speciality. Talk to us about yours.

Why Choose APAP Events

At APAP Events we CAN help you

We are not a johnny came lately marketing consultancy riding the latest trend or fad. In fact we have seen a few trends emerge since starting in 1994 in Rockhampton, Central Queensland and adapted with them. We have also seen tremendous change in media and how people use it.

We were the consultancy behind the Silly Solly's phenomenon that swamped the television stations in Rockhampton, Central Queensland. Blowing apart the then current thinking on what constituted sufficient exposure. Before viral marketing became a legitimate form of marketing we brought the world's No.1 hockey player Jamie Dwyer "Stick Tricks" to the internet to promote the hugely successful international test series between the Australian Kookaburras and South Korea. Still arguably the city of Rockhampton's most successful international sporting event. An event we managed, gaining state wide recognition as finalists in Queensland Sporting Event of the Year. When Red Rooster wanted a grass roots way of engaging with Queenslanders we arranged a sponsorship that branded every piece of training equipment used by Queensland Football (Soccer) players with the Red Rooster logo.

  • When looking for an advertising agency to promote The Rock Building Society (The Rock), I explored several options from both local and Brisbane areas. After an extensive evaluation period we found apap was by far the most impressive, their team has a diverse knowledge base and they presented us with the most original ideas. Their knowledge of the local area and local market trends well exceeds the vast needs of The Rock and I would not hesitate in recommending the apap team.
