We're Screwed!

We're Screwed!

May 06, 2016 Written by
We are taught to do so many things in business; how to hire people, how to inspire teams, how to make money, how to get sales in the door, how to increase your profits. The list is endless, and somewhat exhausting. How, as an entrepreneur, can we get it all right?
What does Apple’s stock drop mean for marketers?
Last week Apple's stock dropped more than 7% - equivalent to $40billion worth of value. The reasons why are multiple, but it seems the key reason is falling iPhone sales. Whilst this news impacts the tech world directly, it also holds significance for marketers and business owners. What you need to know about iPhone sales is that it has the potential to impact how you communicate with audiences on a day-to-day basis.

Will consumers accept mobile adverts for a cheaper phone bill?
Are consumers receptive to mobile adverts for a cheaper phone bill?

Unlockd, a Melbourne-based mobile tech startup just raised an additional $15million, backed by big names including Lachlan Murdoch. This mobile based platform combines the telco and digital advertising worlds to offer mobile users data and discounts in exchange for their attention.
Why we need to stop the bickering about Digital versus Traditional marketing
As digital marketing continues to grow, we've seen far too much politics in the marketing landscape.

Big names in advertising agencies are proclaiming that digital marketers don't know what they're doing. Digital agencies and platforms are claiming that advertising and PR are dead.

These headlines keep popping up and frankly, they're unhelpful for businesses trying to get their marketing right and they aren't helping marketing professionals to be the best they can be. The reality is that digital and traditional need to work together to solve today's marketing problems.

3 Google Analytics Stats You Need To Care About
Data has played a vital role in turning marketing from an art into a science and now there’s more than ever. It can be difficult to know what statistics you should be paying attention to and how to use them. So how do you know your website is performing? What can you do to improve it? Here is Marketing Eye’s quick guide to Google Analytics statistics and how to use them to improve your online marketing. 

The most important thing you need to understand about Google Analytics Stats is that no singular statistic will tell you everything. The key to making informed decisions is looking at several statistics to form a more complete picture of your online marketing, and compare this to your strategy to see if you are on the right path. If you’re getting all your traffic from Twitter, but no one is buying your products, maybe you need to rethink your social media strategy.


The licensing contract that has 100% success rate in Australia
Knowing when to jump from corporate and when not to is a scary prospect for most marketers. Many have reasonably safe and secure jobs unless of course you work for the agencies consolidating and they need to get rid of a few, or Fairfax, and they decide that they can get rid of a few in the marketing departement as well.
As I drive around, I constantly see aged care related marketing and it astounds me how old-fashion it is. You many think that the target audience is old, but what is old today?

Isn't 60 the new 40? Aren't the people past retirement age now more active, fit and looking a lot more fantastic?
Why your personal brand is so important
For years I have advised on personal branding of key influencers in the business world. It's an interesting area, because sometimes when you give advice, it may be confronting, as many of us have an opinion of how people see us and when someone says something to the contrary, it makes us sit back.

Business for some, like myself, is important. How people see me in business is imperative to the success of the company and for that reason alone, I am mindful of what I do and who I am seen with.
The difficulties with scaling your business
I can't pretend to have too much experience in scaling up a business, as I am still in the early stages of doing this with Marketing Eye, and there have been some challenges, but largely it's all about hard work, determination, and finishing a job that you start.
Designing the future of your company
Touch down! Atlanta here I am. I've conquered the first leg of this international trip and now I am ready and able to look at what is really going on in the world of Marketing Eye.

Everything has been such a cloud of recent, and for reasons out of my control. Now, we are taking the necessary steps to reach new levels in the business, and there has been a bit of a business turnaround.

Instead of focusing just on sales of Marketing Eye contracts, we are focusing on creating better career opportunities for marketers around the globe that want to own their own business.
Is Marketing to Employees Really a Marketer's Job or HR's, For That Matter?
Marketing Eye is a fairly interesting place to work. We are disruptive by design, and have a flat organisational structure. This means that employees are empowered to make decisions, work with clients they love and choose their own colleagues.
We haven't had a CEO for almost 3 years - and have tripled our business
I'm the person who is always at the office at 7am. 

My office in Sydney is all the more special at that time of day as I look at the harbour, soak in the constant flow of trains going through and watch the cars flow to a point where they stop, as traffic becomes jammed as everyone rushes to work at the same time.
Crazy days in the office always produce the best results
I'm in Sydney and the weather is phenomenal, the harbour is drawing me in, and the team is so busy that I think that they are going to burst at some stage today - but somehow, they never do.

Instead, they step it up, take control, become better organised and push boundaries.

How does that happen?
Expansion into Europe: The Next Logical Step
What a great start to the year! We have a team that is totally pumped and excited about what the future holds for the company, and I have just come back from a few days looking into the operations of the Vanad Group of companies in the Netherlands.

It's amazing what some companies can do in 10 short years, but more importantly, how they empower their people to produce outstanding results year-on-year, completely on-track to the company's overall mission.
Marketing Executive's in 2016 - how their jobs have changed
There has been so many changes in marketing over the past 12 months, that not too many marketers can honestly say that they are totally 100% up to speed.

We try in ernst to be up-to-date and continually upskill our people, but it doesn't always work out to plan, particularly when they are busy doing their day jobs.

That's why it's so important for marketers at all levels to take time out of their day to work on themselves and their capabilities in marketing each and every week as part of their routine.

We are presently looking for a talented marketing executive in Sydney. Someone with one to two years' experience, with a passion for being the best marketer possible.

As a company we have so much to offer our young team, and we know that they will learn more at Marketing Eye than possibly any other position in marketing elsewhere.
