#83 Big Richard Condom’s Lloyd Perry Talks Marketing.

#83 Big Richard Condom’s Lloyd Perry Talks Marketing.

Well, I could summarise this interview as being all about how to market condoms. HOWEVER, it’s so much more than that.

In fact, Lloyd Perry from Big Richard Condoms actually set out to create a clothing brand, but, thanks to a Venture Capitalist with a sense of humour (what?!) he ended up starting and running a condom business.

So, in this revealing interview (BTW, it’s not one for the kids’ ears) we go under the covers (pun intended) and get some fantastic insights in to very smart marketing strategies around:

  1. Product Development – It can be much easier than you think.
  2. Pricing – Lloyd introduces us to a S-Commerce (very, very interesting).
  3. Packaging – Hear how Lloyd figured out where to position the product using clever packaging.
  4. Distribution – If he can have a condom delivery truck, then imagine what your business could have!
  5. Promotion – Lloyd is a big proponent of video marketing for small business, and has had broadcast quality ads produced for less than $300 (see below). He even reveals a strategy for having your video content go viral.

PLUS we hear from Professor Mike Ewing who provides us some insights in to online retailing versus traditional bricks and mortar approach, PLUS I tackle a listener question (issue!) from Claire Balmer from Container Creative about outsourcing.

Yes … a jam-packed episode of Australi’s #1 small business marketing podcast if ever there was one!

  3. Tim, I truly believe that in the nanoseconds after you said that word, you were wanting to add something else (like you normally do), but decided not to at the last second.

    I think condom was the trigger word and your mind went off faster than your mouth could talk!

    hehehe

    Big Richard is no slouch at marketing. I like the subscription plan idea. It tells young people that it isn’t only applicable for mobile phones but for condoms, too. Funny approach as well!

    Good marketing indeed. I like Lloyd’s “bring the cheeky Australian spirit to safe sex”. His going online strategy really works as young people are awkward to buy over the counter. Great interview.

  8. Another incredible find Timbo. So much to learn from Lloyd. I love his playfulness with a ‘taboo’ topic. It started with the memorable business name, and just continues to grow from there … no pun intended. I’ve loved this show so much, I’ve just shared it with my community. Some really interesting discussions are taking place. Another ripper show! Laynie

  10. Thanks for the kind words, Laynie. And for sharing such naughtiness with your community. Keep it up! (Boom, boom).

  11. Unfortunately Big Richard’s number is disconnected, they don’t reply to emails and none of their products have arrived that were paid for. Great businessman!
