282 – Boobs. Yeah, Big Boobs. They’re Why This Business Exists.

“Our business is big boobs!” That’s the opening line from the interview pitch I received from today’s guest. Maxine Windram of Brava Woman. And yes, she got my attention. And yes, the interview contains Dad jokes. But it also is busting with marketing G O L D! See what I did there ;0)

When Maxine and her mum (both full-busted women) launched Brava, a lingerie store for women D cup & up 9 years ago, they had never had a business, never worked in retail or even fitted a bra, but they knew fuller busted women needed a better deal. Today, they have three retail outlets in prominent shopping areas across Melbourne plus a bustling online store.

Yep, this episode of Australia’s best marketing podcast is busting at the seams – so let’s get stuck … right in!

281 – Disruptive marketing ideas rock. And Ben Walker, a 26-year old CPA, is nailing some.

Hey, what kind of business do you reckon this is? It’s got a cafe that’s not open to everyone. The cafe’s got beer taps. It has weekly gatherings of up to 30 people. And you can’t be a client if you can’t use an iPad. No idea? It’s an accounting firm. And a very disruptive one at that! (I do love disruptive marketing ideas!)

CPA Ben Walker opened the doors at Inspire CA three years ago, and from the very start he was determined not to make this any old accounting firm. He wanted it to stand out from the pack, to challenge the conventions of an industry that (some would argue) is trapped back in the 80s.

Listen in to find out what he’s done and how it’s impacted his business.
