It's not because I am bored or I think that I am an exceptional writer - because I have never had a bored moment in my life (it's my dream to be bored one day) and as for the writing, I only write well when I put effort in, and this blog is more a rambling of my thoughts, rather than something that I have placed alot of emphasis on.
The ONE reason I write this blog is to CONNECT with my target audience and to communicate with other marketers who have interesting ideas on marketing or who have a point of view.
A new way of looking at things has emerged, and batteries are well and truly charged to maximum capacity. What was the change?
Each day, I will publish ways to improve your small business marketing that are simple, yet effective. By Friday, you will have 100 ways in which to promote your business better. If you have some ideas of your own, please comment and I will be happy to add them in. Thousands of people read Marketing Eye’s marketing blog each week, so any great ideas or experiences is greatly appreciated!
In Australia, for business to business marketing, I still believe that BRW, The Australian and The Australian Financial Review are the best mainstream editorials to receive placement in.
For small businesses, its difficult to find newsworthy stories, so any opportunity to gain exposure is one of these editorials should be considered as part of an overall marketing strategy.
It’s that time of year again where BRW is looking for FAST STARTERS to compile their list for 2010.

I read blogs every day. Some are good, some are terrible. It still amazes me though that the ones that are visited frequently, like Marketing Eye’s blog, tend to have information that is relevant to its target audience.
