Tim, tell us about your podcast.Tim Reid

Called The Small Business Big Marketing Show, it’s reason for being is to help demystify marketing for small business owners. To help them embrace this important business-growing discipline to the point that they actually enjoy marketing themselves and their precious business. In fact, my dream is that marketing becomes a hobby for every business-owner listening – when something’s a hobby, you look forward to doing it, and will find the necessary resources to do it properly.

Why did you start this podcast?

I’ve been marketing all my life – but I especially love chatting and supporting the smaller end of town. Whilst they could afford to pay my coaching fees, they can afford the time it takes to listen to my free podcast made directly for them.

How long have you been podcasting?

Eleven years – my show was the first Australian business podcast aimed at small business owners.

What do you look for in a guest?

A successful business owner that has an interesting story of growth and who has used some form of marketing to get them there.

How can listeners find you?
