How to do Marketing

Jane Hillsdon

These days, successful small business marketing requires us to be brave.  If your small business is based in a regional area, you compete with your local competition as well as the rest of the world. Small business has the power to drive and sustain regional development in Australia. We employ local people, we support local charities, we contribute to building sustainable local economies that help our nation thrive. We are ambitious and capable and together we can collaborate to achieve a common goal that is bigger than us.     

This may be stating the obvious but operating a business in a regional town is very different to running one in a metro city. And for this reason, your approach to marketing needs to be different as well. So how can your business compete?   

Taking a brave approach to your marketing strategy and execution will help position your small business for success. It will differentiate your business in competitive markets. It will help build and create a strong and sustainable brand. It will drive the right customers in your direction and keep them coming back.   

Jane Hillsdon, Founder and Managing Director of boutique regional marketing agency; Dragonfly Marketing has worked with hundreds of small businesses to help them navigate the ever-changing world of marketing.

Jane shows that creative and effective marketing doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.
