(With background music) Hello and welcome to Fiit professional podcast, the number one podcast for fitness professionals looking to build its fitness business. If you have low clients, more income and more free time, then you have come to the right place. Visit podcast.fiitprofessional.com today.

Brad Campbell: Hello Fiit Professionals, Brad Campbell here today, and I am back with another fantastic episode for you. I have a very good friend of mine. His name is Jeff Moore. We actually have never met in person actually. But with the relationship that we have wired around social medium Facebook it almost feels like we’re good mates already. Umm, so that’s really exciting to have Jeff on-board now. This is little bit of a different episode today. Now, Jeff is actually not even involved in the fitness industry, umm, other than his personal fitness of course. Umm, but, Jeff actually owns a rather unique business which I am gonna be probing Jeff today on some, some really good techniques, marketing strategies, those type of things that you could sit there and listen to, and find out how you can incorporate that into your own fitness business. So Jeff, a good friend from Facebook, how you doing my buddy? And thanks for coming along today.

Jeff Moore: Thank you very much it’s an honour to be here. I feel the same way and I think we’ve interacted for over a year now on Facebook and you know social media and big respect for you and what you do and actually was talking to my wife about you earlier tonight because it’s a business model that we really respect and something we are working our way into with her business, so

Brad Campbell: Yeah excellent. Really appreciate and I guess Jeff to give our listeners abit of an overview on who you are. So to tell us a little bit about Jeff Moore, what does he do, and why are you so cool?

Jeff Moore: (Laughs) Well, I guess it depends on who you’re talking to. But, yeah, I am a lifetime food guy. My family and fourth generation food and food service out here in California in the United States. And have really been in, pretty much, every position in the supply chain for food on the food service side of the business and that is the restaurants and the hotels, resorts, distributors, suppliers, sales agencies, the whole, the whole gamut. And I am presently president of two companies – International Pacific Sea Foods, is a company that sells primarily to food service in the sea food obviously but we sell to distributors and we also contract with major restaurant chain across the country. Your folks might have heard of cheesecake factory. The Cheese cake factory out here, VJs restaurants, it’s all in the states, is where we operate, I do have the coolest job in the world and that means I get to travel around the world sourcing sea foods and then come back and tell stories about. And that’s umm, I am a big story teller, and then I am also a president of another company called Lie Out Things sea food which is a direct to consumer clay, where we sell online and then we also have warehouse sales in our building. Once, about once a quarter used to be once a month and now once a quarter. Got a list of couple thousand rating fans and continuing to grow that business and absolutely love it. And then I am also the founder of a mastermind group that you are involved in, called the Thursday night boardroom. Started with four people in August of 2010. Just watching some videos of some seminars that I went to. And it has grown now to I think just at three hundred and forty members in twenty three countries. So I am a husband a proud father of four great children. Three girls and a boy. And just really feel blessed to have tremendous network of friends and you know people such as yourself that I interact with on a daily basis.

Brad Campbell: Excellent. And who would have thought, you know, probably yourself a few years ago thinking you may have such a rich and with people in so many different countries really is. I need to pinch myself quite frequently actually to be able to realize the opportunities that we all have as individuals to be able to make a larger impact on such a fast scale as well. Well, let’s just put it into context little bit here for our listeners. I know the scale of your business is quite large we are not just talking average fish and chip shop hunter here, we are talking quite a large establishment. So give our listeners just a little bit of overview of, you know, the size of the corporation that you actually do run so we can gain a bit more perspective on that.

Jeff Moore: Yeah, umm, the International Pacific Sea Foods which is the parent company, the mother ship if you will, is 35 million dollars in a year in sales. And we are on a trajectory to, by end of this calendar year, to be almost 45 million dollars in sales. So, pretty big trajectory. It’s kind of scary to get to that volume. But we started off, we bought the company back in 1999 from a gentleman who founded it back in 1975 and, excuse me, it was 10 million dollars in sales, so we have almost tripled business, in, well, we have tripled the business in about 11, well, now 15 years I guess.

Brad Campbell: Excellent. So in regards to that and I know you said it can be quite scary and most people go what’s another 10 million a year but that’s exactly it’s another 10 million a year. So let’s look at this from where I am gonna go. You bought the business back 15 years ago. What are the, what would you say are some of the key concepts that has helped you grow it from where it was when you first purchased it to now almost reaching 45 million a year.

Jeff Moore: I would say that the biggest factor for us as a company has been that regardless of whether are in our B2B or business to business space, or we’re in the B2C space, the business to consumer space, everything is P2P. We treat everything as person to person. We don’t spend a lot of time fortifying our brand in the traditional sense of trying to, you know, fix our logos, or make prettier fliers, or plan a sale pieces, or fancier videos, it’s really about optimizing and maximizing our relationships with those key individuals, that we end up being business friends and partners. And we have really been great at the type of partner, the partner is so overused, but the type of partner where if somebody, if one our customers is a distributor customers looking to go out and blitz the market and really make an impact in sea food. We ride along their side and you know where other companies will say Oh yeah we’ll go out and we’ll support you and they send them some fliers or a plan of sale pieces or maybe some samples and they go here you go, go out and sell it yourself. For me, you know, we get an opportunity like that just and they go what do you need from us and I go just get me tube sock and a roll of quarters because I am gonna be kicking your competitor’s ass with ya. You know, so we’re aggressive. But we’re, I don’t know, we’re just that type of guy you know. That type of company that they can always count on to be at their side. And the same thing with restaurant customers. They really look to us as trusted advisors. So they’ll call me and they’ll ask me about a piece of sea food that isn’t mine, that I am not selling. And they will, they’ll say, you know, hey tell me about swhypinkKC (this word wasn’t clear) and all and explain it to them like OK well how could we get a sample well it’s not mine but can certainly have their process, the customers not using the best available option and over the last six years since we have started doing this we saved the restaurant operator three and half million dollars in annual food cost. So I guess, that’s a, that’s probably our biggest USP is these five questions that we go through. And by the way, those are all on the back of our card, the business card. (Yeah). So everybody knows exactly what we’re looking to do. And we get there and it’s not about necessarily just trying to sell him something. It’s about trying to create, find and reveal the best available option for them.

Brad Campbell: Excellent. So I guess if were to recap on that is what you’re doing in essence you’re coaching your clients or your prospects into making the right choices and also on that if your company can’t deliver on that you send them to the right place, you know, leaving a good taste in their mouth time to time. So let’s look at those five questions. I have heard you talk about the five questions before but I think it’d be good for the listeners out there to look at and while, Jeff, going through these questions, look at how you can relate this to your own business model.

Jeff Moore: Yeah, it’s really important to realize that none of these questions had anything to do with sea food. Okay? They have everything to do with the customer. So when I was showing my business card, I gave my business card to David Bock who was New York Times best seller for 11 or 12 books now that he’s put out that are New York Times bestsellers. He looks at my card, he turns the card over and he goes what are these? And I go those are the five questions we ask every customer to turn them to best available option and make sure they’re using them. And he’s like Whoa! He’s like I have seven questions that I ask every prospective client. Can I put those at the back of my card? I am like Yeah, I guess you can, you know, and so these questions are simple, people are expecting these wonderful, you know, symphony to come out. I call it the blinding flash of the obvious. And so , umm, the first thing is What do you using now, you know, kind of get to the point of foundation where the person is right now, put this customer and we’re going out to see him what are you using now, what is the brand of sea food you’re using, the origin of the sea food, the label, we even take a picture of the labels, you know, we’re not fair, we have somebody else take the pictures and send them to us so at least we know we’re doing, umm, what are you doing with it. And it’s probably the most important question we can ask. In sea food, if we’re cutting portions or customers taking and buying a portion and then doing extra work with that is their particular portion that they can be using that fits their needs the best and so what are you doing with it, how are you preparing it, how are you menuing it, how do you pricing it, we’re really kind of identifying not just where they are now and what they’re using now, but what they’re actually doing the physical act of doing it what is that process and so we get to uncover that and discover that, what is their, for us, what their potential weekly or monthly volume that they use and that’s not really kind of to ask for our purposes, you know, if we care or not, you know, is this big enough for his team to continue the conversation. For us, sea food is the last hunt of food of man. And so  if all of a sudden there is scarcity, like right now there’s a world-wide scarcity of mokhi mokhi, frozen mokhi mokhi whether it’s out of South America or Taiwan or wherever. And so all of a sudden we’re talking to testimonies like yeah I goes I want to use 20,000 pounds a week at this particular kind of mokhi mokhi. Chances are that that’s probably not gonna happen. So, you know, we need to be able to help them recognize options before they get to a point where they run out and they fall short of a customer’s expectations coming in for something in particular like that. And then where are you getting the product now, you know, we know who the suppliers are, we know who the distributors are, and we know their threshold for quality, we know, you know, how they do their business, so that’s very important for us knowing who they’re working with now. What are you paying for, and that’s kind of an obvious like oh gosh you know maybe they’re not gonna tell you, they’re gonna lie or whatever, that’s fine. But in fact now they are talking about a certain species of sea food and let’s say  they’re talking about a pacific rockfish, and that pacific rockfish they say, but I am paying you know a dollar ten a pound for it. Since we know there is some adulteration or there’s some specie substitution or something that’s going on because those things don’t match so we have an angel to look at that and make that determination is what are they really selling, what are they really doing because we’ll ask these questions and we’ll go through these five questions and we’ll go back to the freezer or the refrigerator and look at that product again, and lot of times it’s not the product they think it is. So that’s a big reveal for us and that helps us understand and by the way we do this with our customer it’s not with our particular item or any particular agenda or particular item that we wanna sell them that day. And I think that’s where a lot of suppliers or providers of the service or product or even the deliverer of the message. They’re so hooked on their own agenda when they’re going into this that they forget that meeting the customer where they are is gonna help you guide the customer to a decision that them to their better self, to their better business and you’re going to be their guy, you’re going to be their trusted advisor, if you help them understand that they are the primary agenda when it comes to this particular interaction.

Brad Campbell: Yeah, and I guess, you know, the key takeaway point that I certainly get that to reiterate the fact is the questions, the better you questions the better the answers you’re gonna get and it all comes down to investigating, like you said, you’re gonna meet the client or the prospect where they are currently out on their journey, so change gear little bit there and let’s talk about marketing a little bit and let’s look at how do you go about getting client, what are your best strategies or best practices that you’ve used in regards to generating new business?

Jeff Moore: You know, that’s a good question and it’s always evolving for us. And I would say that our best avenue for us has always been word of mouth. It’s you know whether it’s a distributor or a restaurant operator. Just move from place to place and they evolve and they grow in their career and first thing managers and those people they move around and we build our business that way, but we’ve also built our business penetrating at our distributor so a distributor isn’t just a distributor they’re actually a sales and marketing agency and we have helped them pull through business, go out and paid new business and working through the distributor and using our sales agencies across the country but mostly it is really really truly been our relationship with the distributor and the large chain accounts. And you know to say all what we ran or add or we did anything like that we did something about 12 years ago. That brought people to food show and it was we had I mean it was a direct mail piece that had surplus response I have to tell you that story because that was amazing. And the most amazing is that we never did it again but the stupidest part I should say we brought, you know, several hundred people to the food show and you know kicked ourselves off and things which we were doing but for us it’s been the long relationships that have and the word of mouth that has carried us forward. There are some things that we’re doing now that are gonna develop some greater pre-eminence on a more broad scale. Market reporting, certain marketing reporting that I am doing, but beyond that it’s been good old fashion word of mouth orchestrating referrals.

Brad Campbell: So let’s talk about that and let’s talk about the word of mouth you know in the fitness industry what a lot of people will say is well, is majority of their business is bought on by providing your clients with good results and in your case, obviously delivering good sea food. So let’s talk about how you can orchestrate referrals, how do you go about in your businesses.

Jeff Moore: I think that what we’ve done we’ve got better at it and we are able to be so helpful when we get to, you know, we work with the customer that people are always looking to us to do more of that with them whether it’s a distributor sales rep, or a chain account. They’re always bringing opportunity to us. And when it’s when they’re talking about a lead or when they’re talking about a customer that they want us to go see we tell them this is what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna go through this five-step process or gonna reveal this process and reveal the great, the best available options for them. And we help the sales reps that are working with us to give us these leads, we help them understand the ultimate strategic position in your relationships is to be the go-to guy for education of the information and Czech Home said that couple of years ago but Czech Home is a master salesmen, the ultimate strategic position is to be the go-to guy for education of the information. And in the sales world, if you’re selling a product like sea food, or any type of food or anything, your customer is looking to you to be the, and you’re the go-to guy for any education of the information for them you’re in control of that count 24 hours a day 7 days a week whether you’re in the account or not. Because anybody if comes and says hey I’ve got a better widget, I’ve got a better piece of sea food or I got something cheaper or I got this I got that. You’re the go-to guy, then the next phone call’s to be to you. And they’ll say what do I, you know, somebody just showed me this and it’s a dollar a pound cheaper than yours, what am I not seeing? And now all of a sudden you could put back to power position whether you’re in the account or not. The customer’s calling you saying hey I am looking at this, what is this, what is different in your product versus what I am doing.

Brad Campbell: Hmm, excellent, and let’s look at that a little bit deeper there and go into how do you become that person, how do you become that person that your current customer actually rings you up to let you know that someone else has offered them something of cheaper value and you get that call, how do you become that guy?

Jeff Moore: I think it is from the very beginning, Brad. I think that it’s when you establish that initial contact you make such great impact when you’re able to articulate the needs, desires, challenges, fears and aspirations of your customer better than they can do themselves. As you look and see what they’re challenges are, for me whether it has to do with sea food or not I am so learned in the industry that I can see and hear the challenges that they’re facing right now and have a conversation, so from the very beginning, we establish a relationship with people that they look at us and even you know how this goes when somebody is talking to you and you’re talking to them and they start articulate it back and you’re like yes you get me you understand me and that to me is really where we started. I think we’ve been that powerful presence. But we’re also not doing it the same way. That we walk in and even with our competitors. My competitors are looking and saying this is I am doing how can we do it better. And, you know, they’re asking us questions like that because we’ve established ourselves as an authority and a trusted advisors. My good friend Jay Abraham says pre-eminence, you know, so when we’re able to establish that from the very beginning, and be able to articulate that and there’s an exercise, there a process to that. And we do that in the boardroom, we really need to identify that one customer, you know, the ideal client that you really understand better than anybody on the world, in the world and that’s what we’ve done we’ve been able to articulate the needs, desires, challenges, fears and aspirations of our customers better than they can do themselves, which sounds like a hard thing to do, it’s really not if you focus that way.

Brad Campbell: And the power in that is, you know, unbelievable, as you can imagine, so our tragic transformation franchise we have an avatar, a target market,a particular one client. We’ve got a list of questions, comments, a list of information about this person. So a name Sara, she is mid-20a, brown hair, etc etc etc, until you can really know and narrow down to the psychological side of things as well like what do they do at night, where do they hang out, who are their friends, those type of things, so I’ve seen the similarities and it’s you know a real big eye opener to everyone listening there that the same fundamentals whether you are a fitness business or on a multi-million dollar, you know, mothership, of sea food, like you put Jeff is. You know the fundaments are the same and you know business rules apply. So let’s look at, I always like to, to try and learn some lessons and get people around the world, listeners the opportunity to take away something, lesson of sorts that they don’t need to go through the hardships. Now, I know for example that you talked about, couple of minutes ago, that story about your best and probably worst ever marketing campaign, so tell us that story because I know there’s a good lesson behind that.

Jeff Moore: Yeah, there is, and I worked through the professional marketing agency, that was a directory marketing agency, that I don’t know if they’re well known I mean I did know directories spots from hallo peens when we were working with them. But we started out invite, we identified who were gonna invite for this particular show and we had mailers, series of mailers, that was going out to this group of people and there was 200 and there was 200 decision makers at major restaurants chains and distributors in the western United States. 200 is all it was. But they were major players, I mean the collective decision for sea food with these 200 is in the hundreds of millions of dollars, and so we figured hey you know not a bad deal so we sent out the 1st mailer, the mailer was like a tube that when you opened it up, it had that kind of sensor that played the sounds of a crashing waves and seagulls and things and it was tied to a border that was you know had this note in there it was letter that cam e a fishing boat captain and talking about how it’s morning and sun’s just coming up, the fog is thick. But you know we’re catching sea food maybe glovagla for the restaurant. And it was really well written but because it was the only thing it made it so special and beyond that letter, was the fact that when you opened that up, it made noise, made a sound, and people were really impressed by this right, this was by in, you know, 2000. It was back like 1990 does. And so maybe more than 12 years ago but thefunny thing was as we sent out 200 of those set, we got 300 responses. (Laughs). And we’re like 298 responses, and so the next letter that went out, now we’re inviting people to come to this show because we are giving away 3 days of 3 days show, each day we’re giving away a shark fishing trip. So the next mailer goes out and it’s in this kind of Manila on blow account wannabe male thing and it’s a little plastic box with a pad on it, and inside this plastic box was a bleached chicken bone that had an evidence tag tied to it and the story goes that our friend was fishing off the coast of California and a great whale came and tumbled out his boat and took him down and we’ve been dragging the ocean for days and all we could find was this bone and now we’d want your help, we want the hunter to become the hunted and now we’re feeling this picture about this fishing trip and the shark fishing trips that we’re giving away we got like over 400 responses to that and then the final one we sent out and we’re almost, we sent out 200 and we got total 500 sign-ups to attend the show and we’re giving them free passes to the show, on the whole deal. We had almost 500 sign-ups for the free passes from this mailing sequence. And it was extraordinary and we never did it again.

Brad Campbell: Let’s speak to that so, what was the one results from it that you found and secondly, the second part to this question is why haven’t you done it again?

Jeff Moore: Well, I’ll tell you what were the results. The results were that we were starting our own sales agency at that time as well as being an importer, a processor and a trader of sea food. We ended up building a sales agency was generating about 50,000$ a month in commissions, we generated an additional or probably nine million dollars in annual business from this, from this event and from what we did. And we never did it again because the show was so impressed with the quality and it just brought the show back out, it was a skull of the sea fair, they just brought it back to Los Angeles. And they were so impressed with themselves on all these high value customers that showed up, that we brought (laughs).They doubled the rate of the show next year and so we did it the next year and that was the year that we attacked Afghanistan. And so nobody is at the show and they said no, we’re not gonna, we’re not gonna give you any kind of refund, credit, you know, you’re in tough luck type thing. So we never did the show again, but we have list of people we interacting with and in the sea food business it’s not like a digital product, you know, if all of a sudden, Brad, you have your business and as a trainer and not you because you are the you show trainers and you’re obviously are the expert in creating the training business a part of it as well as being a trainer. But all of a sudden you got 50 new clients, you know, in a course of few days, that’s a totally different business. You know, you can’t do 50 more clients, add 50 more clients to your business or a 100 more clients. And just be the same person that you were before that 100 clients and so we really for several years were chasing our own infrastructure, were building our own infrastructure, to be able to support adding 9 million worth of new business and a 50,000 dollar a month agency. The business was coming in faster than we could really you know conceptualize it or scale it and so we were always chasing it and so (laughs), doing another part of those mailers! Now you’re gonna hear same kind of response, hear the crap part of us. And so it just and we’re still you know growing like we gotta grow right now like we are growing right now. It’s like where is putting together another direct mail and something that’s gonna explode you know like that. You’re afraid it’s like it was a great, it was great. But you don’t wanna, you never get a second chance to make a first impression and so all of sudden your marketing exceeds your capacity to serve. I can’t think of anything in business that’s more anxiety people working, because if you can’t, your capacity is served, is not up with your marketing capacity, then you’re kind of a little bit fraudulent in what you’re doing, you kind of hit the grabber, you’re making promises that you can’t keep, and how word of mouth goes the other way.

Brad Campbell:You bring up really valuable points there, Jeff, and first of all there’s that 9 million dollar lesson but I mean it’s that question right you got to flip the coin and go it’s not a bad problem to have I suggest but you hit the nail on the head there right the invite saying  that’s where the word of mouth can go the opposite way if people are trying to relate to that to the fitness industry what can happen is that there are, you would have heard of Group On, and all of those type of daily deal sites. Now, what happened is a lot, I guess I should say untrained business people so personal trainers who want extra clients who don’t about the business side of it, they don’t how to set up the backend technology side. You know, they go to a Group On place and get 150 people willing to join their boot camp for 1$ and then all of a sudden they don’t know how to funnel the clients through. And then, like you said, ends up in a big mess. At this day and age, with social media, you do one thing wrong, and the whole world knows about it. So let’s go back to that for a moment, Jeff, I know you touched upon there and coz what’s happening to me right now is I am going well, there was a 9 million dollar addition to your total revenue. What have you put in place since then and when do you plan to run it again or something similar?

Jeff Moore: Right now and I just have this conversation, I caught up little bit with Dean Jackson and Jaw Kwalish on marketing about, you know, the opportunity of exceeding our capacity. I don’t know what I am gonna do, something like that, that is so just significant and almost over-whelming, I don’t know if am gonna do that like that but I am going to do and I am publishing something called as the deep dive report and it is talking about the top 30 species of sea food. It’s literally though instead of these reports that come out from the sea food companies, and nobody can really make heads or tails what the hell they’re even talking about and the perspective or the context which they’re talking about, like if somebody says we’re having a strong year, that means what? That means hey business is good for us, right. But the person that’s reading it, so if the sea food supplier that in particular specie is having a strong year, that means that they’re I guess that’s a good year. It’s been a good year for Salmon, let’s say. So it’s a good year for Salmon, Salmon suppliers, does that mean it’s a bad year for the guy that’s actually got to buy it? Does that mean he’s paying more this year? So there is a lot of confusion when these reports come out. So what I did is I am able to repurpose these reports in what we call the deep dive report, story beneath the surface. And to be able to bring these reports to the actual user, the person that needs to know what’s going on in the industry the most and that’s the end user of the product or the restaurant owner of the chef, the buyer, and be able to provide a report that says what is going on, what does this mean to you and what should you do right now, soon or eventually, using absolutely no jargon totally unspoken and being able to explain what is going on, why is all this stuff happening, what does that mean to you as a restaurant owner and what should you do right now, soon or eventually. And it’s gonna, that will drive a ton of business our way. It will drive pre-eminence, it will well establish ourselves, continue to establish ourselves, is that kinda if you will celebrity trusted advisor and that will be a tool that we use going forward. But as far as the big demonstrative play of bringing 500 people to a show, buying them tickets, doing shark fishing trips, I think that literally filled the funnel way too fast

Brad Campbell:And I think if we look at that for a moment and we go, and there’s no shortage I am sure you’d agree with me there’s no shortage on strategies on how to generate business. But there are shortage of clever strategies that require less work from the business side, so for example, you talk about, going to set up the trade show, you know, all of those type of things and we’ve set up a trade show before we’ve done it, spent three days at a fitness convention you know we paid for the boat we paid for the flights, a combination all of those type of things and was quite a stressful exercise in itself and so now the results were great what we discovered was hey no matter what we can actually get similar or if not the same or ever a better at times results for doing a easier strategy and what you’re guess out of prospect out there is, when I use the word easier, guess is probably the wrong word. I am looking for more of a tactful strategy where now you’re goingback to the relationship building perspective where you’re gonna implement education-based marketing to get them onto your list and then once I receive what’s the next steps, what do you do, do you just pitch them some products or do you put them in a funnel is there any follow-ups to this, what’s your process around that

Jeff Moore: Yeah, well, at that point, there will be phone call. There is a funnel by the way, the funnel is such that this report comes out it’s like, it’s, you know Gary Harbor, it’s Steve like the Gary Harbor letter. So it’s not just a gorgeous saying but it’s always supporting by a website called the deep dive report on the website. And so there’s updates, there’s going to be offers, there’s stories that we’re telling and you were talking earlier about branding. That for me is going to be our greatest purport to be able to share stories of other people’s successes. And in that, as we build our list and we start to tell our stories about how restaurants were successful about our product, because that’s what I believe branding is anyway. Brand is a stories starring our customer using your product or a service. And the brand identity is the more about the story where the two – you and the customer/client live happily ever after by then consuming, continuing to consume your product or service.

Brad Campbell:Excellent, so I guess for everyone listening there, you know, Jeff just just struck some bombs in regards to not just having a basic and online talk in a newsletter. You’re talking about sending out a, an actual, something in the mails, is that correct?

Jeff Moore: Yes

Brad Campbell:Yeah, so what’s happening there is that your customer is gonna receive something tangible and if we’ll understand that whenever we receive anything in the mail that is isn’t a bill or a speeding ticket. Then you feel like being given something of quality. Now, like you said, it’s not gonna be a beautifully printed kind of glossy newsletter, but what it is gonna be is, it’s gonna be quality that is going to be able help the end consumer who’s gonna be reading it. So, I guess Jeff, we’re looking here and I know time’s ticking out little bit. I just want to finish off with a couple of, I guess you should say quick five questions. Just want to put you to the test.

Jeff Moore: All right.

Brad Campbell: In case, whatever comes to you first here, ok?

Jeff Moore: Okay

Brad Campbell: Alright, so. Who is the best marketer of all time? Come on I hear you thinking, I hear your brain thinking.

Jeff Moore: Jesus Christ

Brad Campbell: Okay, what is the best business of all time?

Jeff Moore: The food business

Brad Campbell: The food business?

Jeff Moore: Everybody’s gotta eat, everybody’s gotta eat

Brad Campbell: So what’s in store for wealth in sea food and Jeff Moore over the coming 12 months?

Jeff Moore: While I think sea food is going to continue to expand in the healthy tracy arena and start to work with a lot of, dieticians and people in the fitness world, connecting with them, nutritionists, and we’re gonna develop a lot of fitness centres, and work with them, but do more on the healthy aspects of why sea food as well as grass-fed beef, I got a lunch tomorrow with the New York Times best-selling author and just a wonderful person, guru. That is in on TVC and PBS and everything so we’re gonna talk about developing a market place of organic and wild and grass-fed products. So that’s where lot of things is going continuing to evolve as a local go-to place for them. For me, Jeff Moore, I am gonna also, I am working with my wife and that’s something but a different conversation I’d like to have with you is my wife is a high-school counsellor, and she has a business where she helps kids get into college and she believes her mission is pure. Her mission is – anybody that supplied any student, any student that supplied them enough in high school to be able to get into college, deserves expert guidance regardless of their financial position. And right now if you wanna hire a private high-school counsellor, college counsellor, you’re gonna pay anywhere on the low end of 4000 dollars to 14,000 dollars a year to have a private counsellor help you through and be your guidance counsellor and we’re gonna, she’s doing that, my wife’s doing that for far less and it’s had such a tremendous success I couldn’t be more proud of anybody on this planet. And so I am gonna commit all my network and all my marketing acumen towards really helping her and that’s gonna be a business that will definitely yield a significant resources for us moving forward.

Brad Campbell: Excellent. Also exciting and look definitely open to helping you guys out. So, last question, Jeff. What is the best fish species around, what’s the best tasting fish species you’ve ever had?

Jeff Moore: Well, you’re asking Jeff Moore what his favourite type of sea food is? I am gonna tell you it’s the sea food that makes me the most amount of money. (Both laugh). But you know I have so many favorites. I am gonna tell you a little story though. You’re familiar with Cosco. Is Cosco in Australia?
Brad Campbell:No, I don’t think it is but I am familiar.

Jeff Moore: Ok, cool. So Cosco big box warehouse type store. And they did a, they conducted a study and they took all the wild salmon, fresh wild salmon, foreign salmon from around the world, king salmon, all the different species of salmon. And they did a test. A taste test with these global panel of experts. And the test revealed that the frozen Atlantic salmon from Norway, with a 4% salt solution, was the most flavourful salmon in the world. And it’s it’s as the taste goes and I would tell you that some of my favourite sea food I love is a good wild salmon. I really really love salmon. I like Chilean sea bass if it’s gone properly or padygony and two fishes people know around the world. And those, those are probably my two favorites. And I really can’t steer away, or shy away the stakes and big toolads and falaeds, and while I think we sell stakes and sea food and all sorts of fun stuff and have a good time and there’s a last one you know people will show up to a party and they’ll have cocktail strip and there’s like hey it’s a great cocktail strip, it’s my favourite, I don’t show up with cocktail strip. I show with a laskin snowcrab cocktail claws. And there are literally snowcrab claws that are fringed, so the meat’s coming up, still have the claw on one side and then I serve it with a worm drawn certified organic butter, churned with a fresh sea salt. And I think that one is probably. That’s the one that’s people remember.

Brad Campbell: You’ve got my mouth watering right now and I am gonna have to work out how we get you over for Barbeque (both laugh).

Jeff Moore: Yeah, great. Yeah.

Brad Campbell: Lot of nice sea food around the world but look Jeff, once again really appreciate you taking your time out in your evening now to get on the call and share your wisdom and your thoughts with our listeners.
