ABOUT ME AND MY BUSINESS
My name is Luke Strochnetter and I started 360 Degrees Marketing in 2018 because I really wanted to help business owners grow their businesses through Social Media. Our mission statement is “Let us do what we do best, so you can do what you do best. Run your business!” This is at the forefront of everything we do. Business owners wear so many hats and unfortunately, in most cases, Social Media is often left last in the priority list or often an afterthought. That’s why 360 Degrees Marketing was started.
I have lived on the Fraser Coast for 14 years and have been actively involved in the community throughout that time. I have extensive knowledge of social media platforms, marketing, and event management. Although mostly self-taught, I am currently studying Diploma courses to continue to upskill. I have successfully managed multiple major and minor events held across the region and have managed countless Social Media platforms in both Paid and Voluntary positions. Luke has also assisted clients located in Brisbane, Melbourne and London.
I have had a passion for small businesses and people since I was a young teenager. I have been organizing events in Hervey Bay since I was 12 and what started as a hobby has now become my livelihood and business. I now own and run two successful businesses. 360 Degrees Marketing is a Social Media Agency helping businesses elevate their social media presence and Occasions by the Bay is a pop-up picnic business offering luxe picnic & party setups on the Fraser Coast.
Like I said earlier one of my main passions is event management. In 2020, I was able to organize the Rockathon: Bushfire Relief Concert in Hervey Bay which saw over three thousand people attend and much-needed funds raised for those affected by the Bushfires in January/February 2020 (one of the last events in Hervey Bay pre-covid!). I have been very lucky and honored to have worked on some awesome projects. I have coordinated and managed some highly successful events including Afterglow: Youth Week Event in Hervey Bay in 2019, Rockathon Bushfire Relief Concert in 2020, Bush and Beats in 2019, Hervey Bay Family Fun Day in 2018, and the Country Campout Weekend in 2017 & 2018. I have also assisted with the Hervey Bay Carols By Candlelight and Hervey Bay Relay for Life. I am also the Co- Event Coordinator for the 2021 Hervey Bay RSL Carols by Candlelight.
Luke has worked alongside great companies and helped them build their brands or design business cards, website, content and/or graphics including Albatross Boat Licencing, Foodworks Hervey Bay Airport, Aircon and Solar Clean, Revive Therapies and Psychology, Binneys Tornado Potatoes, Hervey Bay Allround Property Maintenance, What's On Hervey Bay, Haircorp Pialba Place, Bay City Mini Mix, The Fortnightly Live, Cheap As Movers, Pie & Pastry Paradise, Hervey Bay Food On The Run, Positive Changes Hypnotherapy, True Blue Aussie Water Filters, Occasions by the Bay, Colonial Village Resort and many others. Luke also established the Fraser Coast Delivery and Takeaway Services page on Facebook which has over 8500 members.
