Allan Dib on Delivering Thoughtful Marketing

by | Wed 28 Oct 2020

I first discovered Allan Dib when I read his book, ‘The One Page Marketing Plan‘. It was refreshing: there weren’t the glitzy, sensationalist, unrealistic techniques that some of the marketing gurus use – it was simple, effective, practical advice.

As such, I knew I wanted to have Allan come on Conversations With Bacon, and I was thrilled when he agreed to it.

Unsurprisingly, we get into a frank, realistic, focused discussion and cut through much of the nonsense ravaging the marketing world.

This includes:

  • Allan’s IT background and how he got into marketing.
  • His struggles with learning marketing, and how he conquered them.
  • The role of data in marketing and how you can learn from it.
  • His views on sensationalist marketing gurus and their techniques.
  • The risks of short term vs. long term gains.
  • The cultural impact of Allan’s Australian heritage on his approach.
  • The role of copywriting in great marketing.
  • …and much more…
