In this episode, I’m joined by Tyson Franklin, Telstra Business Award winner, author and business mentor. Marketing is the life blood of small business. But it’s often a business owner’s greatest weakness. So, I’m delighted to have Tyson Franklin on the show sharing his simple approach to marketing. He breaks down the 6 pillars of marketing into easy to digest, bite-sized chunks and gives you a plan to master all of them without burning out.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why bigger isn’t always better and the power of remembering why you started your business
  • 6 pillars of marketing
  • 1. Professional referrers – e.g. professionals in similar or adjacent industries who serve a similar client base
  • 2. Non-professional referrers – e.g. people who aren’t in a similar industry but who might share some overlap in clients e.g. coffee shops, hairdressers etc.
  • 3. Internal marketing – e.g. database, office-based marketing and more. Reconnecting with existing clients
  • 4. External marketing – e.g. sponsorships, pr, media releases
  • 5. Verbal Marketing – e.g. networking, speaking gigs, podcast guesting
  • 6. Online marketing – e.g. website, social media etc.
  • And how to master all 6 (without burning out)
