NB: Season three of the show is now in production. First episodes due for release mid February 2018.
This is the favourite part of the show for host Steven Cavallo because he gets to directly help real people with an actual problem they are having in the areas of business development, marketing, sales or fundraising. Steven features one of the recorded questions sent in by listeners, and plays back that recording on air, along with his commentary. To submit a question, please record your question as an mp3 (maximum file size 7Mb) that is no longer than 60 seconds and email it to: email@example.com
While we can address your issue and provide some valuable insight for questions featured; of course, we can only go into brief detail in the minutes available in the podcast. so we encourage listeners who want more formal advice (regardless of whether their question is featured) to outline their specific problem/opportunity and email it directly to our marketing consultants and you will get a reply within 24 hours.

Steven concludes every show, warning of the dangers of business owners and executives following the 'advice' of non-qualified, supposed 'marketing gurus' that is strewed about the internet and that can cause severe financial and branding damage to a business. That’s why we make this podcast for you, to help protect you and millions of others from being lead astray. So you can safely share this podcast with your contacts knowing you will thanked; and the content appreciated.
So how do you know what’s good information and bad information in the risky realm of business advice? Well, you could do what your host Steven Cavallo did and spend a decade intensively studying marketing science at University, and run businesses, give lectures and train people and do lots of high level consulting work across different industries…OR you can simply get the true fundamentals in an easily understood form…for free.
You are welcome to a free seat in the next Webinar (online seminar) where Steven will be presenting vital aspects of marketing science and business development. Topics covered include: how advertising REALLY works and how to only spend money on what ACTUALLY gives returns. Learn how to sell 20% more without any extra customers; and we reveal the truth about consumer behaviour and HOW buyers actually choose between your brand and your competitors’. Plus, you'll learn the three biggest pieces of misinformation that wastes money and leads to nothing – things that nearly everyone has already been sucked into doing! This information is totally unknown by your competitors (and the false 'gurus'); so knowing it is a lucrative advantage you can easily get over your competitors.
Do yourself a favour and attend the next 45-minute webinar. It will end your vulnerability to misinformation and can finally stem the flow of so many unnecessary expenses you are probably already incurring. There’s no cost, no obligation and you’ll make stacks of money from the information.

Take a look at some of our work.
The Business Firm has the ability to help your industry better manage the biggest challenges it faces. For example, your industry may suffer a situation that stems from an unfair market power advantage imposed on you because there are very few big buyers that continually drive your price down (e.g. 3 supermarkets to 5,000 farmers, or insurers to crash repairers etc.). Often, these few buyers use thier enormous relative market power to dictate terms to the businesses that supply that market. This almost always translates to severe strain in your business' ability to make money and subsequently, strain on the family that owns the business. Talk to us today about possible solutions. to overcoming this situation.
We are experienced in helping industry associations, guilds, employer groups and other bodies overcome or minimise these issues. Book a free, no obligation consult with one of our advisors to get some answers quickly on how to improve the market position of your industry.
A full business strategy including integrated marketing plan was created for a high-profile automotive industry body in Australia. The bold ambition of the plan lead to seismic change for that organisation in their industry. It addressed the top five concerns all businesses in that industry were facing, that resulted in a shift in the power struggle endured against an oppressive supply oligopoly. The outcome was a spectacular turn-around for those industry members (i.e. the individual business).
As part of our suite of services, we also provide lobbying, pubic relations, bids preparation and tender management.
We help charities, sporting clubs, industry associations, schools, professional bodies, unions, membership organisations and political parties. We can help with fundraising, brand building, media publicity, social media, online donations, sponsorships, governance, annual reports and commercialisation of intellectual property.
We also give presentations to Board members on strategic marketing and business development. These presentations are particularly useful to Boards prior to undertaking strategic planning as the information we share at these presentations help expand enormously the success that organisation can enjoy thereafter. Board presentations can be tailored to a specific industry or sector (e.g. health, sports, welfare, education etc.) and to any combination of topics (e.g. fundraising, public relations, sponsorships, online strategy etc.).
