Mobile advertising is a fast growing industry. Gone are the days when mobile phones were simply used for making phone calls and sending text messages. Mobile phones are now similar to mini-computers and today’s savvy businesses are benefiting from embracing the communications tools available.

Marketing Eye has always been at the forefront of companies that adopt effective marketing innovations, which is why it recently signed a reseller agreement with SpidaNet, the first and only proximity marketing platform in Australia.

Australian owned SpidaNet has quickly established itself as the leading platform for directly connecting customers to brands, all in real time. The company provides an engaging interactive proximity marketing service which, combined with Marketing Eye’s creative expertise, is designed to deliver innovative and highly targeted advertising campaigns.

It needn’t take a huge budget to market a business. All it takes is time and little forethought. Report: Georgina Dent

Many years ago a manager commented off the cut that Marketing Eye Chief executive Mellissah Smith “worked in sales”. Smith was irritated by the description until she decided he’d made a valid point. “I was quite annoyed about him saying marketing was the same as sales but they actually do go hand in hand,” she says. “Marketing creates the forum for sales to occur.”
Forget sales - if you don't have a lead to begin with, there won't be a sale in sight. So why do small businesses fail to ignite a frequently flowing stream of leads that they can nurture and turn into a sales?

According to small business marketing expert Mellissah Smith, "Small businesses just don't get into a sales cycle rhythm like their larger counterparts, largely because they don't identify that there is actually the problem with not having a sales cycle."
 

Whenever I see businesspeople claiming to be operating businesses that save the environment the sceptic in me says I should turn away and turn away quickly.

As if in confirmation of my suspicions, when I mentioned the renewable fuels sector to fund managers around town in the wake of the federal government's proposed green investment bank with its $10 billion five year budget, the response was lukewarm, to put it mildly.
