If the idea of surrounding yourself with a deeply engaged community who love what you do, buy everything you offer and provide a great sounding board for future ideas is of interest then you’re in for an absolute treat. It’s a nurturing episode 558 of The (12 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast.
Presenting from stage, on video, or in an interview situation is a marketing strategy too many business owners ignore. And as a result, leave plenty of money on the table.
Join Andrew Griffiths, Australia’s leading small business author and myself as we talk about exactly how to do it.
Knowing how to stay productive in business during a crisis can be tough. Join Griffo and I in this episode of ‘Funny Business’ (poorly named, I’d have to say!) where we talk about how to cope when business is anything but funny.
I also tackle a question from a listener about my social media links, I share an amazing result a marketing coaching client of mine has achieved by placing a greater focus his marketing, I give you an update on what’s happening with all things outsourcing and there’s an inspiring marketing quote from none other than Martin Luther King.
Ready? Me too. Let’s do this.
Generous businesses win. Period. Now whilst greed may have been good way back in the heady 1980’s (geez I loved the 80s!), these days it’s businesses that give, that are generous, that are building a tribe of loyal, long time customers. And as a result, they’re booming.
So in today’s episode of Australia’s favourite marketing podcast, Andrew Griffiths and I get together for another instalment of Funny Business, in which we take a deep dive in to how generous businesses are rewriting the rules of marketing for this decade and beyond. Enjoy!
“I love the marketing ideas you’ve shared, Timbo, but of the 250 people in this room, how many do you think will action them?”
I got asked this great question at the end of a keynote I gave recently. You’ll need to listen in to hear my answer, but what I can tell you (and you probably already know) is this… there is no shortage of marketing ideas in this world, but the magic is in the implementation of them.
And that’s where many (most?) business owners fall down. They hear a great idea, take a note of it, and then for whatever reason (there are many) they forget or don’t get around to taking action. They get sucked back in to the busy-ness of business.
Sound familiar? Cool. Well you’re not alone. So listen up!

Dear listener … How the hell are you? No seriously, how are you? I sincerely want to know. You see, I’m of the opinion that we’re all answering this frequently asked question way too off-handedly with the casual throw-away line “Yeah, good thanks.” When, in actual fact, everything may not be that way.
