Blogs that touch the sides : Mellissah Smith

Yesterday I had a meeting with a prospect that is about to list a company on the Australian Stock Exchange.

We discussed his plans, then I went through an overview of Marketing Eye and what we do. In my overview, I discuss four different areas of our business; outsourced marketing department, technology, media and education.

When I go through media, I always discuss our publication Marketing Eye Magazine and the company's significant social media presence. In particular, I talk about the number one reason people arrive at our website, our blog.

He said, "I know about your blog. I saved one of them to my iphone in 2013 that resonated with me".

"Same bed, but it feels a bit bigger now" is the lyrics in the famous Bruno Mars song "When I was your man". An apt description of Marketing Eye's business expansion into the US market. It's the same company, but it's a bit bigger now. 

What started out as a step to expand the international footprint of our brand, has taken on a whole new dimension. Australia and America have long been tied and now more so than ever. The ebbs of the economy has led to an opportunity for Australian companies that are geared for expansion to leverage the strength of the Australian dollar, and affordable set up costs in the US market without breaking the bank. The downside, is US dollars are not worth as much, as the dollar loses its grip on parity.

Historically, Australian companies that have expanded into the US have benefited immensely from foreign exchange rates. After the initial shock of start up costs, companies see the silver lining of building businesses in the US and bringing US dollars back to Australian shores.
