What’s In It For You?

Who’s Behind all this
marketing nonsense anyway?

Me! Timbo Reid!

I’ve been in marketing all my working life. 35+ years (just quietly). I studied it at uni. Spent 10 years at Clemengers, Australia’s largest ad agency, creating award-winning advertising for global brands like Gillette, Dulux & AXA. I was the marketing manager for Flight Centre. I even spent time at Reach, helping grow a small not-for-profit into a powerhouse.

Those first 3.5 decades were simply a training ground for where I am today. You see, what really excites me is helping the smaller end of town (from start-ups to businesses turning over up to $5M annually) create marketing that works. Marketing that builds strong brands, that generates warm leads and importantly … that is fun.

I want the marketing of your business to become a hobby.
