Welcome to the world’s best, certainly most practical, marketing show. Tim Reid here (you can call me Timbo) - I’m the founder and host. In its 7th year, The Small Business Big Marketing Show is laser-focussed on helping you, the motivated business owner, implement clever, effective marketing ideas that you can use to grow your business into the empire it deserves to be. Or maybe you’re a startup looking for mind-blowingly good marketing ideas that don’t cost a fortune. Well, you’re in the right place. 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!!
