How do you define a great marketer? Is it from the assets he’s acquired? From the websites he’s built? Or do you have to be well-known in the industry to be considered one? If those are the criteria, then we have just the right person to talk to you about marketing today.

In today’s episode of Marketing From The Trenches, I’ll be talking to a really good friend of mine, Stephen Esketzis, the Founder of Digital Marketers Australia.
