Auckland based
small business?

I can digitally upgrade your small business way cheaper than a standard marketing agency can! Get unparalleled industry-specific, creative, and personalised marketing that doesn't break the bank.

My social enterprise Little Blue Marketing recruits over 70 local professionals to work on small businesses. I have freelancers from graphic designers to web developers, opening the doors for tertiary students to gain learning opportunities and international professionals to get their first kiwi work experience, because, how else are they to get experience?

They are highly skilled university students and internationals looking for work.
Don't have time for interviews, money for new employment, or know what to look for?
I have assessed, vetted, and benchmarked their abilities for you.

The Gig Economy is here.

Can you afford another salary worker?

I provide your business with freelancers as opposed to permanent hires – giving you the flexibility to scale as needed. I have 100’s of highly skilled freelancers, university students, and international professionals: Front-end Web Developers, Google Ads specialists, Retail Inventory, Graphic Designers, Animation, CRM, to UX… Whatever you need.

What’s in it for me?

  • Save time and skip the interviewing process
  • Guided selection so the professional you’re connected with is best suited for your specific business needs
  • Save money by not paying agency fees or full-time staff
  • Zero Commitment – no contracts, cancel any time (haven’t had any yet!)

What do you do exactly?

MJP Digital Marketing is a 1-to-1 network of freelancers who, with some community support, assess, vet, and benchmark each freelancer’s abilities for you. Each member (professionals and students alike!) have varied strengths, weaknesses, aspirations, and challenges – but to support their growth (and yours!) I’m taking out the guesswork, so you can get on with your job while someone else sorts out the niggly parts of business growth. I do the phone screening, performance evaluation, knowledge gathering, and portfolio assessments to find a freelancer who suits you – and businesses whom suit them.

Kate Jones, Marketing Professor, AUT University

As one of the most critical thinking students I have taught in the Bachelor of Business (Marketing) I can recommend Mark as a business person who will ask the really hard questions. This is a difficult skill to develop and is not to be under-appreciated.

Mark has a critical approach to the typical “ways of doing business” and in my view, this approach is one of the stand-out ways of thinking that business needs, especially for businesses faced with twenty-first-century changes.

If you as a business want a person who is unafraid of challenging the status quo, who can see how to improve business processes for better customer experiences, and who brings an intelligent approach to work – you need to contact Mark.
