My goodness what a time! So much marketing love!


Grill The Marketer VII - The Last Crusade went off like a frog in a sock.

Best question of the night

So many great questions were asked, choosing a winner was super tough.


This one really got our marbles rattling though and got the choccies. (Choccies being a SUP voucher from the champs at WhatSUP Paddleboards)

"I work in marketing for a national healthcare company, with three boutique businesses in WA, and one business we market nationally. At the moment, I've been asked to market our three WA based businesses, while not pissing off our national business market.
Our national marketing model is very established, and has been around for twenty years. Our two latest additions to the business are quite new, since 2017.
A lot of the business that refer to us already offer some of the services we are now looking to advertise.
So I need to put together a marketing strategy that will improve leads nationally, and then locally focus on building leads in specific niche markets without hurting the national business."

What a doozey.

To hear our answers to the aforementioned Best Question ever and all other questions, super excited to announce we'll be putting up the full audio (soon) of the event as an episode of our podcast. You can listen to on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or stream direct on our website here.
