Who we are

VMG was founded in 2012. VMG was created to offer brands an alternative to the ‘big guys’, a consultancy that has over 25 years experience working inside some of the world’s largest consumer brands but with the flexibility to scale up or down based on the client requirements. There is no need to pay for extra headcount or overheads that you don’t need.

The core passion of VMG remains marketing ethically and successfully to the kids, youth and parents market. In 2015, Meagan began building a virtual team across Australia of the most senior marketing professionals and now has expertise across all marketing and business disciplines.

At VMG we have created a flexible and innovative business model that gives you the best people for your project. We match you with pre-vetted marketing professionals with the right skills to ensure the best fit for your project. This makes the project more cost effective and flexible than a traditional agency but still gives you access to the heavy weight marketing and business experience. When you work with VMG, you are working directly with the expert.
