204 – How and why to make your brand beautiful, with creator of online accounting software, Saasu.

This week’s episode delivers hard proof that absolutely every business niche can deliver their product or service with passion. Marc Lehmann, a former investment banker, identified that the accountancy software in the marketplace was not designed with small business owners in mind. And so he went back to basics and created a list of the things that small business owners would really want from accounting software – leaving all the accountancy jargon at the door. Now, that same online accountancy software, Saasu, has attracted around 100,000 users.

199 199 – How to benefit from a business setback.

When you fail in business you have two choices. Get back on your horse, or give up. The good ones get right back on.

My guest today, Chris Taylor of Actionable Books, has had the odd business failure. And each time he’s been thankful for it and kept on riding. In fact, his latest business venture is a direct result of a business failing. To get back on his horse, Chris committed to reading 52 business books in 52 weeks, applying one lesson from each.

Alas, Actionable Books was founded. And is now a thriving online business, that up until three months ago, was being run out of a cave in Spain! Press play for some marketing gold about content creation, content curation, embracing failure and living the location independent lifestyle.

In this week’s episode, I chat with Martin about his incredible business success, as well as customer psychology, brand extension, and patience in small business – so listen up to Episode 198 of Australia’s biggest marketing podcast!

In this week’s episode, I ask the age old question – Does sex sell? And you will probably be unsurprised to know that the answer is a resounding YES – at least, if your brand is relevant to the occasional flash of flesh. And one brand that certainly is relevant is frank coffee scrub. I speak with Jess and Erica from frank, and they talk through their astounding growth to 350,000 Instagram followers, why a little bit of cheekiness never hurt anyone, how they commit to such a strong identity throughout all their branding, and the benefits of having a low price point. Let’s get started!
