Steve Miller on making your business Uncopyable - MAF185

On the show this week, I talk to author and speaker Steve Miller about his book Uncopyable.

We talk about how to make your business stand out. Being better is not a competitive advantage. You must be different.

Welcome to episode 185 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

  • Why trying to be better than the competition doesn’t work
  • Why bench-marking helps businesses to stand out - but you must do it right
  • The 4th element of competitive advantage
  • How to create that 4th element to stand out
  • How to think outside the box and to define your box
  • What Steve would like people to take from his book

Who is Steve Miller?

Steve’s father was the co-inventor of the 8-track tape player and he learned a lot about business from his father and his business partners. His early ambition was to be a PGA golfer and he played in a couple of tours. A friend then got him work in Hollywood doing stunts.

He moved into sales and then marketing, which he found he had a talent for. He helped the largest remote-controlled toy manufacturer in Japan to expand. At a trade show, he was approached by Apple to grow their sales. He is now an independent consultant, author and speaker.
