Strategy Sessions Podcast Episode 6: Can You Splitit? Yes You Can!

Ep 6 ‐ Can You Splitit? Yes You Can! Featuring Brad Paterson, Sam Taylor and Andi Jarvis.

Splitit is the new kid on the block in the Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) industry. It recently had an IPO, is listed on the Australian Exchange and is going through a period of incredible growth.

The CEO, Brad Paterson, is the main guest on Episode 6 of the Strategy Sessions and talks about his journey from marketing to the top job.

Before joining Splitit, Brad accumulated a wealth of knowledge over nearly two decades working with some of the world’s most successful payment companies, including Intuit, PayPal, and Visa. He also ran a successful sports blog, Round Eight and we discuss all of this and more in the show.

We’ve got a T.O.P.T.I.P from Sam Taylor, Technical SEO Consultant with Evolved Search in Newcastle. Evolved have a stack of clients in the financial services sector and are a seriously impressive agency.

You also get 10 minutes from me, talking about the 7 Questions framework I use with clients. It’s a follow on from the last episode (which you should listen to, but this will work as a standalone anyway!) and gives you some guidance in how to ask better questions to make you a better marketer.
