This is another travel episode, this time featuring Australia and Fiji.  I was doing some speaking engagements in Australia so Luci and I decided to explore a little while we were there.  Admittedly, there’s not a lot of marketing
lessons in this episode, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.  My aim is to show some insights into Australia and Fiji
that you wouldn’t normally see.

On this trip, we visited Sydney, Cairns, Adelaide, The Great Ocean Road, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Fiji.

    Andrews presentation is interesting. The intro video and song are high quality and get the viewer pumped up for the info about Australia. Andrew makes it seem like he is a foreigner visiting but his accent tells me otherwise.

    Absolutely brilliant video. highly informative and entertaining. brilliant explanation.

  • Sue

    What a fun show! Love it, I totally agree about the business class flights too. I fly to England regularly and a comfy flight makes a huge difference. I like the music on the webcast, but why didn’t it play all the way through? Like English English and American English, there also seems to be an Australian English. Three nations divided by a common language.

    After viewing Andrew Lock’s trip I must say that I am energized to work twice as hard in my small business. The fact that Andrew’s methods work all over the globe, and they allow him to travel to such neat places, is a big inspiration. I am definitely adding the website to my list of favorites.

    I’ve always strived to tailor my business according to world trends, my own area being somewhat passive in that regard. Such direction proved useful on more then one occasion. It’s nice to find a video like this, that explores it in a more detailed way. Cheers.

    Great Job with the video Andrew. Well presented. Tied it well to your ‘marketing theme’ and lots of good quality content. This was very close to home to me as I live in Australia and my wife is Fijian so I know and love both countries very well. Thanks for your efforts!

  • manirathina

    Your presentation is good. I like the places in australia. But i can’t visit that places because of my economy conditions. But i got an live experience in your presentation like i am in australia. The places you showed in the video and the details about their ages and important informations are so good. I like it very much. Thank you for that experience.

  • Daniel

    Not sure if this was a video about business or if it was a virtual tour of Australia. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable video!

    Hi Andrew,
    Great show. I always enjoy what you have to offer, even a travelog. But why wear the hat on the show? You have too nice a head to hide it, unless you had a terrible sunburn from Fiji or something like that. That’s my only negative comment, other than I’d like to see more of your shows with all the wonderful content that’s normally in them. They were the most helpful shows available to my knowledge. thanks again. Ted

  • Andrew Lock

    Thanks Ted,

    My head was looking a little shiny, that was the reason for the cap.

    I’ve been traveling a lot, hence the travel episodes – I figured it would be better to have those rather than no episodes.



  • Jessie M.

    Planes, Snakes, and Reefs OH MY!
    I was expecting a dry marketing lesson, but I was pleasantly surprised by the travel episode. Andrew is right, marketing is everything and everywhere so “thinking outside of the box” to look beyond the obvious is crucial to coming up with great ideas. Thanks for showing us the local culture (in both locations)!

  • http://www.aflairforwords.com Rusty L

    Nice travelogue. You entice us to want to go to Australia even more than we already do!!

  • http://audiovideoevents.com Greg Plotkin


    Great episode! Looks like you had a blast. If you had any daughters you would already be familiar with Uggs. My daughter had to have a pair when she was 8, because all her friends had them. And they’re over $100 per pair! No wonder they make a billion dollars a year.

    If you need a good cameraman for next year, I’ll can make myself available :)


    P.S. – Maybe the urinal advertising company is pronounced ‘gone ads’ and not Gonads since they were obviously gone.

  • http://www.videotime.com.au Tony

    G’day Locky, I am glad you by liked our island (Australia). We like it too!

    Apparently MacDonald’s trademarked the name Burger King in Australia to block them entering the market, that’s why they go by the name Hungry Jack’s down here.

    Keep up the good work.

    Great video Andrew.
    With regards to the sign, NO POKIES IN PORT FAIRY, it means the town of Port Fairy (lovely spot) does not want any slot machines (pokies). There could have been a local club trying to bring them in.
    Looking forward to watching many more episodes.
