How to stay productive in business during a crisis

256 – How to stay productive in business during a crisis

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.

245 – How generous businesses are winning more customers

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!

productivity tips for business

209 – How to get more stuff done. AKA productivity tips for your business. Go!

“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!
