Podcast: Travelsim CEO talks partnerships

Tim Reid chats with Jamien Zimmerman, CEO of Travelsim, who took a simple problem many travellers have and solved it with a SIM card you put in your phone when you go overseas. The result? No bill shock!


This is a fascinating and honest interview, with a focused business owner.

Tim Reid loves Jamien’s business model and brand and how clear he is with his message. We are sure you will agree there is so much marketing gold in this episode and the topics delved into are:

  • How Jamien has leveraged his business through partnerships with large, national brands. This should get you thinking who you can partner with that is going to give you leverage you couldn’t get doing it by yourself.

  • The power of taking the time to talk with and listen to your customers.

  • Why setting up an office and where you locate it should be a strategic move. You’ll find yourself considering what lateral solutions you can look for in everyday problems that you experience in your business.

  • Plus Jamien talks about a moment on the beach with his wife that changed everything.
