Marketing - What Top Gun Can Teach Us About Marketing Stay Hungry - Marketing Podcast

    • Marketing

In this episode, Joel, and Andy explain what Top Gun can teach us about marketing. It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but once you have listened to the episode you will see that a film about an elite training centre for US Navy pilots is indeed a font of knowledge for any business owner.

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

 


You are never going to succeed on your own. You can only do so much.
It is no good putting all of your eggs into one marketing basket.
Don´t go too broad. Focus in on the person that will actually buy from you.
Be careful that your default mindset is not negative.
Get comfortable with the idea that some things are going to be hard.
Sometimes going back to things that worked in the past is a good idea.

 

BEST MOMENTS

‘With marketing, you cannot rely on one component alone. ´

‘You need to be laser-targeted.’

ABOUT THE HOSTS

 

Joel Stone

Joel Stone is a marketer and disciple of business strategy. After seeing the impact of the 2008 recession, he decided to take control and leave employment to set up in business for himself. He quickly built an award-winning design agency, partnering with Andy on numerous projects until they formed Codebreak in 2019.   

Having previously helped brands including GlaxoSmithKline, Diageo, Beta Tools, and Channel 4, Joel’s work has been seen all over the world. He takes pride in applying techniques normally reserved for huge corporations to SMEs throughout the UK. Case studies of Joel’s work have featured in Design Week, The Drum, and Social Media Today.

 

Andy Rao

Andy studied Psychology at university, which was his springboard into the world of marketing. He realised that to sell successfully you have to put yourself into the shoes of your customer and understand their why. Andy started his marketing career working closely with dozens of Shropshire businesses, all of whom had something different to sell. During that time, Andy picked up the skills he uses today to tailor each marketing solution to his client´s businesses, the industries they work in, and the different types of customers they need to reach.
