Marketing Blog

For the past week I have been in Sydney with two of my colleagues. It is an away trip for all of us, as we embark on working in one of our most central offices. Travelling with colleagues can be testing, just like any relationship. There is no truer saying than "it can make or break you".

At 7am this morning I was on a conference call to Dallas, discussing Marketing Eye's services with a prospect in the real estate industry. As we ran through our services, without even realising it, I discussed the things that we do that no-one else in the market does.

For instance:

Everyone is busy doing budgets for the next financial year, and setting sales forecasts, while marketers are frantically trying to ensure that marketing strategies are in line with the results that management are looking for. What is most important is the ability for companies to read the market, understand what customer want, and easily communicate why they should choose a particular company over another.

Marketing Eye is fine-tuning our 2018/19 marketing strategy for Australia, ensuring that we don't just focus on Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Townsville, but also other States in Australia with a firm goal of opening offices in Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and New Zealand.

A fresh set of 'Marketing Eye's'

For the past five months I have been incredibly picky about who would be the right person to spearhead the business in Sydney, a very important market to the Marketing Eye organisation.

While many have felt that I have sat on my hands, I have been quite deliberate. I needed the right person to be in the position that had the skills and passion to take the business forward.

It's that time of year when many Australian companies are reviewing their staffing needs.

I'm embarassed to say that I have let down my readers because I have been so busy working on innovation and developing the Marketing Eye business, that I haven't had a minute to scratch myself. I don't think that I have ever taken so long to write a marketing blog in the entire history of Marketing Eye, and I've missed it as much as you may have.

Everyone is on the lookout for top-notch team members that will help their businesses accelerate their growth.

Finding the right people for the right job can sometimes be quite difficult. There is so much competition in the market for high performing talent with strong credentials, and even the fact that they often change jobs as quickly as they change their underpants – this does not waiver.

Marketing Eye Sydney is seeking to find a high performing, self-starting, Inside Sales Executive to join the team.

The best day, the worse day

I woke up this morning and hopped in my car with a colleague and my niece, and headed for the beach. I felt good. In fact, I felt great. The sun was already blistering hot and after a cold winter in Melbourne, I was soaking up every bit of warmth that Sydney has to offer.

With so much to do today, I decided that I would spend the morning changing things up. That meant the Bondi to Bronte walk, followed by breakfast at Indigo Double Bay and then a trip to the office. I wanted to pinch myself. A healthy start to the day, sunshine and my favourite city in the world, was making me deliriously happy.

Replacing the conventional agency model

There was once a real reason why big agencies had such a stronghold on anyone serious about marketing their company - but somehow that has fast become something of the past.

When I started out in agency world, it was the big brand agencies who every company wanted looking after their brands. Fast track 20 odd years, and now it's the small agencies and startups that are completely disrupting the market.

There is no place I would rather work

When you wake up and race to the office each day, not out of necessity but because you are can't wait to turn on your laptop and hang with your team - you know you are doing something right.

My job isn't what you think. Yes, I own a marketing company, but given that we have a true flat organisational structure, I don't manage anyone, or anything for that matter. Instead, my days are full of creativity, writing, celebrating, brainstorming and general engagement with the people that work at Marketing Eye.
