From Thought Leader to Success: A Journey with Andy Buyting

This episode of Business Growth Hacks features Andy Buyting, a serial entrepreneur, strategic advisor, and two-time international best-selling author who got into content marketing in the early 90s by creating a newsletter for his family’s home and garden business. He later turned the newsletter into a full glossy magazine sponsored by suppliers and distributed it to 30,000 clients four times a year. 

Andy shares valuable insights on building an online presence, the importance of research in B2B industries like insurance, and the benefits of outsourcing content creation. He also emphasizes the importance of knowing your strengths and weaknesses and hiring experts to fill in the gaps, as well as being confident and bold enough to make significant changes in the pursuit of business success.
