#98 Crazy product demos, a publicity conundrum and some Bullshi* Bingo!

#98 Crazy product demos, a publicity conundrum and some Bullshi* Bingo!

In this special episode (it’s spesh ’cause it’s the first of many), I monkey around (oops, I mean talk seriously) with Andrew Griffiths (Australia’s #1 small business author) to have a good old fashioned yarn about business and marketing issues, developments and current affairs that are on our collective mind. In this inaugural chat:

  • Andrew suggests that someone has to be the most expensive, so why not make it you?
  • Timbo is inspired by a bed store in New York that lets customers take a nap for free!
  • Andrew identifies a new consumer trend called Newism (and Timbo questions it!).
  • We both tackle a listener question about publicity from Sonya at Born Country Baby.
  • Timbo talks about that honourable game lovingly called Bullshit Bingo!

  1. I am not sure what episode it was – I think it was this one – you suggested accountants could provide a 30 minute Q&A available to anyone to demonstrate there style – I thought this was a great idea – I always seem to find myself being asked for free advice which I juggle between are you a potential client and free expert advice & then they go to office works instead of buying from me! At least if I did this they could see me…not sure what to call it – as soon as someone sees accountant they think TAX advice – & I don’t do TAX….but am brainstorming – thanks guys

  3. Hey this is my update 21 hours later. I set up a schedule in GoToWebinar for 8*30 minute sessions. Sent it to my email database. Within an hour had a phone call about them…to thank me for offering them. He booked a full day training, including the purchase of 10 books http://www.LearnMYOBin7Days.com and another lady who said she could not afford me…I sent her an invite and I said come along to these sessions…and she turned around and booked 2 hours one on one consultation…plus my first registrant has signed up for the webinars…and I have barely done anything yet. thanks Tim great idea!!
