236 – The simplest, most effective referral marketing idea I’ve heard, with Steve Sims of LA-based concierge business, Bluefish

Steve Sims of LA-based concierge business, Bluefish, has a wonderfully unconventional approach to his marketing. You’d think that a bloke who organises outrageously expensive fantasies and adventures for his 4,000 well-healed clients would spend a fortune promoting his business. Anything but!

Listen is as Steve explains an unbelievably simple referral marketing idea, another one that guarantees an almost 100% open rate, and another one that ensures you get past the dobermans to the decision-maker every time.

I also answer a listener question about generating back-links through guest blogging.

Yep, it’s another big show. Let’s get stuck right into Australia’s #1 marketing podcast.

233 – How to start a cool little business and clean up, with Joe Drew of myBins.

“Hey Mum, I’m gunna become a garbo!” That’s the start of a phone call today’s guest, Joe Drew of myBins, had to make when he decided to escape the corporate cubicle with his best mate Amos. History now has it that these two young blokes are now cleaning up (#DadJoke) around Sydney’s Northern Beaches. They’ve got plenty of work, have extended their service offering and are even looking to franchise. This is a wonderful of two young blokes having a crack, and making some very smart business and marketing decisions along the way.
