Drummoyne business saved
Feed A Starving Crowd is a new Hollywood-bound reality TV show created by Robert Coorey, author of a marketing book by the same title, with the help of The Apprentice Australia winner Andrew Morello, and Gary Ng, a well-known E-Web marketer. The idea is to give a struggling small business a marketing makeover valued at $100,000 and the chosen business for their inaugural season is Mad On Hair and Beauty in Drummoyne. Over a period of 30 days, these three marketing wizards have taken Mad On through a maze of methods and challenges to show them how they can double the size of their business – and their relaunch will be held on July 21st. It’s great to hear that a local business is getting some much-needed support!
