I’ve been in the marketing game (and it is a game :) for 30 years. I also speak at business conferences globally and I know just how many business owners find marketing a dark art. So listen in as I ask successful business owners and entrepreneurs the questions we all want the answers to - How do I get more customers? What’s the best marketing to do? Where do I start with my marketing? How do I create a viral video? How do I use social media effectively? How do I scale my business? How do I make a million dollars!!

Are you ready forsome content marketing strategy genius? Well, how’s this for anidea … Create some unique, quality content that your prospects will love. Then bypass the Internet, and instead, print it on paper and mail it to those who may one day buy from you.How old school is that! Well, it may be old school, but my guest today, Brian Hight of the Rural News Group, has been doing exactly that for the past forty years with his free farming newspapers in New Zealand. In fact, he's even been awarded the Queen's Honours for his contribution to publishing. He founded Farm Equipment News in 1974 after leaving the family dairy farm, sold it some years later and established the Rural News Group which now covers the newspapers Rural News, Dairy News and NZ Winegrower. This is not the usual interview as we barley mention the Internet, but instead explore a way of marketing that has by-passed many small business owners on the ay to Facebook, websites, PPC and SEO!
