"We appreciate the work. You're doing community. It's great. Thanks all right. We'll be back Lamar. Welcome back to this week in startups really impressive of to see the work you've done here. Jordan Jordan is of course the CEO and Co founder of standard cognition which has been around since two thousand seventeen. I believe this is your your two or three thirty two and a half got it and you've opened. This test store gas in order to show other. I guess investors and retailers and retailers what this is about. How long have you had the store Oakland. What's reaction been so we've had the serpent for about a year and the goal was really. Let's let's make a store. That's as vanilla as possible and then throw the system on top of that show that we can make this work in your store. If you're a retailer coming in and what's what's been great about having the store. Just open open reopen in the afternoons. We just open it. There's no there's no schedule for the demo. 'cause we have been the best thing because we have retailers all the time in this week. Can we come over and get a demo of the technology anytime after three yeah we say like no. You're not going to get a demo. Just show up show up and use it yeah and what's what's great is it brings like a bring some clarity to to the offerings. It's not it's not a demo anymore. It's just whenever you WANNA come and and I think they appreciated because then they'll just come without telling US yeah. They'll mess around. They'll try to fool the system Maybe they'll the next week I'm like. Hey we stopped by the storm. Yeah that's like bold. You're going to try and let me know what you think. We'll bold was when we he opened the store. A year ago to the general public we hadn't Beta tested yet. Oh which was intentional but that's that's kind kind of my my style. Wasn't what happened when you just put it out in. The wild must've been great. Chris just to give people reference. You're in the delightful tenderloin the area of San Francisco which is literally the scariest place I've ever visited in my life and I'm they grew up in Brooklyn Seventies and nineties. Yeah I spent the last six years in New York's. I I appreciate your basically. All of New York looked like the tenderloin underline or most of it was tenderloin s at that time but there's a lot of crime here. There's a lot of vagrants. Homeless people drug use craziness in just random mayhem here. You must have people walking in off the street and we do actually part of our part of our tenant was we. We WanNA help communities as much as possible running a convenience store is one of the top ten most dangerous jobs in the US really so after deep water scuba diving the drilling taxi driver convenience store worker. It's one of the top ten and there's actually liquor store yeah yeah. There's actually communities. That don't have any access because it's too dangerous. These places are known as food deserts. Where you just you can't serve you can't serve the communities so if we can figure out to make the technology work here then we want to put it yeah all right? Let me ask you a question. I in the area where I live in burlingame. There's here on the peninsula. There's an apple store. It's been knocked walked off three times in the last six months. This is a place that has a million cameras is brightly lit is on a main thoroughfare and people are smashing and grabbing to take phones in ipads officer high ticket items in a store with no security in self-checkout or note. I'm sorry self check. It's the wrong word. No check checkout. What do you call it. Is there an industry term yet. We call it. It's on a miss checkout. Autonomous Checkout self serve. You don't have to run it through a scanner yourself. You just grabbing go what's to stop like ten people from coming in clearing off the shelves leaving. I think you bring up a good point which is even at a store like apple where it's not autonomous checkout yeah. There's still stolen theft theft exists because exists. That's changing human nature not changing human nature. There's nothing stopping you from walking into a regular store today. Grabbing something walking out. Our goal is just to improve situation there. You still need to have some human president. If you want to do additional loss prevention but what's great about our system is that we can actually be lost preventative rather than reactionary because we're tracking in real time. We know wherever standing in real time we know that someone's taking something if you haven't paid or if you haven't checked into our APP for for example and we see that you're walking towards the door we can actually proactively notify a clerk and say hey here's a map of the store. Here's the person where they're walking this. This person has not done yet would even better from consumer experience because not everyone is trying to steal. Sometimes you just yet how it works now. You've got somebody engaging a person who didn't check in how brilliant Elliot. That's another reason to have the check in exactly yeah because you can go intervene. Maybe somebody doesn't know they have to download the APP. I it's a way softer touch way better than alarm bells going off because you pass through the gate. I wonder if you I was just thinking you could also lock the door but in the case of somebody who's shoplifting in robbing if they're in that situation in life and they're that desperate to steal body wash or food or whatever it happens to be you probably don't want to confront them. You probably just WANNA. Let them take nine dollars so yes yeah yeah exactly. There's also regulatory issues with locking doors because the fire codes right actually so there's been suggested at some point somebody's like we could lock the doors yeah yeah well so the place where this technology type technology not exactly the way we do it has been most adopted as China. Actually there's been a lot of these sort of smaller basically converted vending machines stores where you walk in uses facial recognition or some form of biometric figures out what you take then you're in this sort of gated period where the doors are locked it confirms firms in the door doors open like a double door system like when you're. I've seen them at some airports now where they have double door systems on the way out instead of putting a TSA agent there to sit for twenty four hours people leave exactly and that that works in China but the regulatory nature here in the US says clear don't lock people in them in a lock them in a box treat them like criminals except they haven't actually done criminal things exactly exactly so. We're trying to make the best dropping experience suitable which is actually why when you walk in. There's no gates you don't you don't Badgen. You don't feel like you're into this machine. It's just a regular store. Walk in right. Now you check in as you as you will but you can do it anywhere in the store. It's the plan to have these open twenty four hours a day for some stores absolutely and again we're not. We're not the retailer where the retailer here but that's that's it. I mean if you've already made the decision that you're going to deal with a certain amount of crime like credit cards credit card companies deal with hotels deal with people stealing pool towels or whatever you're you're. GonNa factor that into the price that seems to be a huge unlock as well. I mean if your store store is only open for twelve hours a day and you could open for another twelve. Even if those twelve hours only incrementally ten or twenty percent to the revenue that could be the difference between Rian profitable profitability and not it also allows you to open more stores because there's places where you'd like to reach but you can't economically justify it got it. Yeah is is the idea here that you'll be able to have smaller stores as well and maybe put these in locations that aren't stores yeah absolutely I think as the technology matures and we're going to see a pretty big Cornucopia of differentiation inside of retail for how we want to really deploy this and how do we want to give the best experience in the best access to variety though it's going to be an exciting five years. How does the Supermarket Industrial Complex Look at you and what you're bringing to them. Are they confused. Are they inspired and how did they look at it. I'm I'm curious not Bodega his and small mom and pop shops talking about like somebody who owns fifty or a hundred of these. Are they all solved by the concept or they love it now so I mean what I've been most surprised by. I'm on a retail guy didn't come from retail so this idea would not come from a retail person to be clear like a retail person is not coming up with the idea for this too hard with fresh eyes but what's what's been amazing is is the desire yeah and it's. It's really been phenomenal to in. We actually we don't do any outbound. We don't reach out to retailers. We just kind of sit here and wait for people to reach out to us because there's a huge insane desire to adopt this technology acknowledging. It's it's for a lot of reasons. It's not just about cost savings. It's also about the shopper experience in staying relevant. There's been a lot of you know I don't WanNa. Let's see thrash but you know this notion of the retail pacalypse. which is it's real? It's Real Rada but actually more stores opening every day than closing so it's not that interested sale. All is having an apocalypse moment. It's just that there's been a lot of tumult and you spend a lot of ups and downs in some retailers are succeeding and others aren't and I think what we've seen over the last few years. Is this this realization in retail that you really have to keep upping your game. You have to keep giving the best in best experience to consumers and retailers see that this is that next step and especially with this forcing function that's happened with Amazon. Were Amazon basically showed up and said Hey. You know what we've been dominating ECOMMERCE decade. Now we're ready to come to the physical world physical retailers ten times the size of ECOMMERCE twenty five trillion dollars and they're ready to tackle that and I think that that really lit a fire liar absolutely yeah they were probably on a decade by decade innovation cycle and Amazon's on a week by week day by day innovation cycle you know now. I think we're seeing a almost like a leapfrog moment where retail has been slowly adopting things like better in store. Experiences nuts taken years to kind of gain momentum when hiccup stuff is pretty impressive to but as they've as they've been revolutionizing the cells with that mentality suddenly. Thomas calms into like Oh well. That's just that's just a better experience that stuff that we're trying to work on this like tenure. Grand Vision Computer Vision Gee whiz stuff. It's like no. This is just what we want consumers. Oh my God Lincoln talent solutions. I love this product. We use it. We got so many great team members using Lincoln talent solutions.

"lincoln talent solutions" Discussed on The Brutal Truth About Sales and Selling

"But I think the other thing was I was looking at us using Lincoln's talent solutions products, and you know, it sounds cliche. But it's so true. Just like I don't ever represent a product that. I'm not really excited about in house using Lincoln recruiter at the time. I was like nana's is so much better than everything else out there. I could sell this no problem. And and I feel the same way about gong which is why join as well. How does as getting into management were what attracted you to that does usually people either immediately go into that? Or they never go into. Yeah. So I did I did people leadership's stuff straight out of school actually went into a nonprofit and was connected to UC Berkeley campus in doing Zuma leadership stuff out through that nonprofit. And it's actually the same thing that I love about sales, which is great leadership is all about the influence of people in a way that you can serve them and. Provide them something that elevates them. So I in identical reason that I love sales. It's just over a longer hall, and you can usually get more personal with leadership where you can really make an incredible impact on somebody's life. And that's what I love about your shift to at. And how was it going from a big company to a small company? It's very different. So riding the journey from Lincoln at three hundred thirteen thousand and then coming back into an environment where they're seventy employees when I joined gone months ago. It you know there. There's so many different dynamics that Klay out about the job. I think a few of them, you know, when you're at a big company, you take a lot longer to make decision, which is obvious. But I think the usually some people love that. Because it's okay. Because when you make that decision than the decisions worth a lot more than it is a small company, but we'd take eighteen months at linked in at the end to make a decision. But the decision was Whitworth a couple of hundred million dollars in year one in probably more you're to three whereas at gong. You take half a day to make a business. Right in the near like off to the races. And you go for it. Like, you know, your overall ours..

"So try to say what I would recommend is to try to stay about six months ahead for each higher. Because it does take about six months for an employee to get acclimated into a role, and you know, settle into what they're going to be doing. I think another way to look at that is on an individual. If you just about individuals like CPU's or GP's, you wouldn't wanna burn them at one hundred or one hundred ten percent of the CPU's capacity at least not for too long because they burn out and quit and one way to make your organization grow is to say I'm going to keep everybody at eighty percent, which is what I like to do here. Which is hey, let's have enough sales people that there's a little bit of extra time for them to not be burnt out to have a little extra capacity. So sometimes you'll fill that capacity. But then other times, you'll have a surplus of that, which thank can be deployed to special projects, etc. And redundancy and better communication. Yeah. Absolutely. Also, be proactive and stay focused so practically reaching out and utilizing tools like Lincoln talent solutions has worked really well for us. So instead of just setting up a job description and being passive about it what I like to do is set some sort of regimen. So every five every day reach out to five different candidates that may look like a good fit for the role. So don't just kind of set it and forget, it if you have the time also, you know, oftentimes, if we get busy sometimes we'll put up job posting up and then kind of forget about it. And so we'll have all these people taking the time applying for this position and not hearing back from us, which is bad. Yeah. That's bad spent for its bad karma. It's also bad form. And it's bad for your brand. If you're hiring people should get a response within a day or two one way or the other. We've used a bunch of different tools for this Lincoln is obviously the low hanging fruit for all of this because everybody's on there, and you could find passive job seekers. People like angel s I think. Yeah. And using your network. Yeah. In another note on that is just keeping your job board updated. Also because it is a waste of time for all these candidates to be applying for role that doesn't exist or has expired another tool that I would recommend is breezy HR. So we have I think we're hiring for like five rolls right now. And we have these pipelines set up, and as you move the candidates along the pipelines, the tool will automatically send certain emails or such on interview. Yeah. And we treat it like a sales process. So basically, you know, keeping the pipelines keeping keeping everyone updated following out being proactive, and that's that's been working really well for us living. I like is for the founders to write the job descriptions themselves, and I think everybody writes their job description, so dry that if you actually write something personal with some enthusiasm about what you're doing and the mission because you really want missionaries not mercenaries, you don't want somebody who's just going onto Craigslist, or whatever and just. Firings. Zillions of resumes out with a generic cover letter. You wanna try to connect with people in that process. I like to write a blog post, you probably see me do that. Or talk about what we're looking for on social media and being opportunistic as well. You may find somebody who doesn't fit in exac role, in fact Sam that's when you came here. We were like didn't have an exact row, but we knew you were talented. We knew you were interested in investing in companies, and we and we created a role. Right. So I think being a little flexible of talent shows up find a role for them, especially in the early days you start it. Also, there's a good example recently of infusing some personality into your job at and talking about your company density, did a really good job of this the CEO of the company wrote a letter to the new employee. So it's there they were hiring for a head of channel partnership or something like that..

Cd Wang is what we like to call a serial side hustler. You manages rental properties. Rinse out cars through the platform. Toronto and flips book items he buys at WalMart for profit. He is basically several of our most popular episodes rolled into one. And that's not all CD is also the inventor of zip seen a DIY gadget that lets you tailor your baggy clothes in a matter of minutes. No sewing experience required for years ago. He was working as a chemical engineer an engineer with eight ridiculously baggy workshirt. He liked the shirt a lot and it fit well in the neck, but in the chest and belly section completely swallowed him up. It wasn't exactly a good look for him when he got home and rifled through his closet. It occurred to CD that his entire wardrobe could use a little tailoring, but shackled by student loan debt, a complete wardrobe makeover was out of the question and his engineering education didn't include many, classes and tailoring so CD grabbed the challenge by the collar. Literally to see if anyone else how this problem he went to do some reading on read it there, he discovered that the struggle was indeed, real baggy shirts were a borderline epidemic. He then considered what an ideal solution would look like first and foremost had to be a temporary reusable solution something that could easily be added to and removed from multiple shirts after all this was the poor man's tailoring hack. And if the look he was going for was tailored it needed to create a clean scene and be invisible. From the exterior of the shirt, it should also be flexible and move easily with the wear and assured itself one day during his evening commute. Cd was struck with visions of a c shaped hollow tube, you could place along a seam and tuck in excess shirt material this might actually work he thought so instead of heading straight home he made a beeline to Menards. The midwest answered a Home Depot and purchase enough fish tank tubing to raise some eyebrows. A true man of industry CD headed down to his parents basement and got to work he made a few prototypes. Using the fish tank too. Being a knife to create strategically placed cutouts increase flexibility and something to give the tubing a small amount of rigidity the first of the ration-. He tried involve thin planks of wood. Ouch. He eventually settled on a more comfortable woodland version. Eating a catchy name. He called it. Zip seem now that he had a product at least almost a product and a name. He turned his thoughts to marketing and with funds being tight CD decided to launch on Kickstarter with a goal of twenty five hundred dollars the first day without any advertising at all. And largely thanks to good videos and photos, he took he was two thousand dollars closer to his goal by the time. The campaign ended zip seem had received attention from the likes of gadget review and a handful of other media outlets the attention drove more than three thousand backers to his campaign leading to over fifty nine thousand dollars worth of funding. It was a smashing success. You might say it had him bursting at the seams. He turned a nice profit because getting everything started and running on Kickstarter cost him less than five hundred dollars. Of course. Now you had to deliver the product and the beginning CD intended to build each zip seen by hand. But after a week or so of continuously cutting into plastic tubing with a knife. He realized there had to be a better way, he response to some manufacturers local to his area in Chicago and found someone who would make the first batch for him for ten thousand dollars. This had the added bonus of improving production speed and freed up his time to create an online store. He knew he had a winner. But he was also concerned he couldn't even count the number of times. He'd see something new on the market and thought man I thought about that years ago. He also knew that common problems lead to come and solutions. So he decided to hire a pet and lawyer to protect sip seeing from competition this cost him another

Well, she believed a plant based whole foods lifestyle would improve health yet. She struggled to stick to it. It wasn't until Carly tried meal. Prepping that she was able to accomplish your goals, if you're not familiar with mil- prepping, it's all about preparing aspects of your meals in advance rather than deciding what's for dinner at the last minute. Throwing something together you create a plan for the week ahead on weekends or whenever you have more free time. You do your grocery shopping and initial prep all at once. This may include chopping, vegetables or cooking or freezing sauces, whatever it is. When those steps are done most of your meals for the week ready to go and take very little time to assemble Carly had been writing about healthy eating on her blog plant you. Dot com for two years. So she was well versed in making meals without oil refined sugars or animal products. She knew from experience that meal prep could really help her audience. So she decided to offer a weekly meal prep plan while she'd already built up a substantial network of a hundred and thirty thousand followers on Facebook and Instagram she had created all of her blog and social media content for free for two years. Her blog income had previously been limited to product sponsorships and was pretty sporadic this meal prep service, essentially a membership program gave her the chance to generate consistent ongoing revenue. So just three months ago, the plant ahead meal prep program took root with his program Carlson's out new vegan meal plan every single week as well as grocery shopping list and nutritional breakdown for each recipe. Members also have access to an exclusive Facebook group she wanted to make sure the program was accessible. So she offered it for just eight dollars a month. Her startup costs included, a website Demane hosting a light photography and a couple of. Subscriptions nothing fancy all of it came to approximately six hundred dollars which he quickly earned back in sales. She also spent a few hundred dollars in advertising costs the first two months to get going. She covered those costs easily as well.

Four thousand dollars to celebrate Carly's. Fiancee plays the song you make my dreams. Come true by Daryl hall, and John Oates, every time someone signs up for a meal plan. This song might be getting old because now she has more than three hundred subscribers interacting with these members on Facebook has also been rewarding people share photos of their meals support each other and their feedback helps Carly note that her work is truly benefiting people on the other hand seeing people quit. The program has been tougher Carly. She had to come to terms with the nature of a subscription model. People will cancel but more will join his well. So she learned to not take it personally as long as more people are joining the cancelling. She's doing all right. She also found that the sudden success came with financial matters. She wasn't prepared for she sought help from attacks expert to gain clarity on topics like claiming expenses, and whether she had to charge tax to international customer base, finding someone to go to with those financial questions. It was a big relief. The plan ahead meal prep program has required. A lot of hard work Carly admits that she's had to sacrifice a lot from her social life to time planning her wedding. But that sacrifices paid off in more ways than one. She says I would not be giving up weekends and hours during my weeknights for this. If it wasn't something I love, and I'm deeply passionate about in fact, I think it would be impossible, otherwise, and I certainly wouldn't have gotten to this point if it was just for the money. Well, that's wonderful. Of course. But I'd also say fortunately, even though it's not just for the money.

"Could you share you broke into leadership and your path to becoming a CMO? Absolutely. And thanks for having me on the podcast as well. So my Pathan leadership is an interesting one t- backup before the marketing experience I've been in in marketing proper for by nine ten years. Now, I actually spent my first five or so years in sales. So I was an account executive, and then I became a sales manager. And I think that's probably why I have tended towards B to B marketing and enrolls since I walked to the other side of the fence at work from there actually spent a couple of years at business school. So I had had some management experience in sales to set it. I wanted to double dine on that and potentially switch careers. So went to business school at tuck Dartmouth came out of that in management consulting, which also teaches you different set of leadership skills and pretty soon. You're you're managing small teams of of analysts and associate consultants as we call them. And so by the time, I got linked tune in early twenty ten I had some leadership slash people management experience, but it was really my first proper marketing job. So I came into Lynton is a the first product marketer for Lincoln talent solutions, which was their largest fastest growing business and kind of jumped on that rocket ship. And when I joined the company was about five hundred employees. He's when I left four and a half years later, it was six and a half thousand and when you're when you have that sort of career opportunity that's rose up all sorts of leadership opportunities for you as well as opportunities to grow within your discipline. And so I stayed in marketing for the four and a half years, but I had a different succession of different roles. Basically that helped me to see more do more around the marketing stack as it were. So by the time, I left linked to move to open table for year and a half in restaurant marketing, I had amassed enough breadth of experience take on senior role, and it's sort of gone from there. It's funny. It's like. We chatted to a lot of Simos or diff- marking Gators strikes me kind of like this sort of diagram of sales experience consulting experience and marketing experience and see him on the middle. It's pretty incredible just to see sorta patterns of the people we talked to definitely, and I think product marketing particular a great entry point for consultants because an MBA as well as that strategic skill set. It's the a lot of what you do in product marketing around messaging and positioning pricing lot of strategy and thinking about competitive competition and so forth. And so I find that the the skillset that was actually tr- directly. Transferable course yet. So today, we specifically want to talk to you kind of customer feedback. And I know you have been talking to everyone saucer bettas on just wondering like a very high level for listeners like why should customer feedback be such priority for for marketers into the nineteen. Well, how they sad statistic share with each so sorry monkey we we're quite fond of research as you can imagine. And we ran some research last year and find that sixty three percent of people think that. Marketers are selling them things that they do not need to. That tells me that we as marketing profession or not doing a good enough job of listening of really understanding the pain points the challenges the opportunities for us to add value to our customers..

"Same thing with Instagram, and that's tried and true practice here. In fact, that's what venture capital is designed for. So the fact that you're asking this question. Why would they fund this? It's just a naive question. No offense. The the reason venture capital exists is to take these kind of crazy swings for the fences. Adam to Angelo is the the founder, he's the former Facebook CTO, I believe he he's probably put in tens of billions of dollars of his own money. So when a founder makes a ton of money, let's say got two hundred million dollars sitting in a Bank account what sitting there. So if they want to spend ten twenty. Thirty million dollars on their you know, passion, project hoorah and then turn on revenue in the Tampier. Oh my God. Feces. Love that stuff. They love that. They'd love somebody who's willing to build up, and we should take a look at what the traffic is. But I think the traffic to core I'm going to take a guess here that Cora has one hundred million visitors a month. I'm just taking a guess, and I'm going to say more than two thirds of that's from America's I'll say fifty to sixty million US and somebody will look up Cora traffic from right now. Traffic in the US for core up. Somebody can take a look and shifting and find that. But I guess at least one hundred million viewers a hundred million users a month, and we could also figure out where they are in terms of Corre US rankings for traffic, and I'm gonna guess they would be in the top two hundred. Maybe anybody see that up there right now. It's take a look cody's typing something I'm taking a quick look on duck. Oh, here we go. Alexa. Says that they are site info. Oh my God. As of September of this year, three hundred million monthly. So that means they probably have a hundred billion in the US there.

Let's say and it's all search engine traffic, by the way, people are just bouncing. That's where they get their traffic from right now. It's a search traffic was as high as sixty five percent Alexis thinking, it's over fifty. So it's a very search driven site. And I would put the value of core with three hundred million. I think they could easily get two percent of those people to pay. So it's three hundred million unique some month six million paid members at ten dollars a month h five dollars a month each would be three hundred to six hundred million subscription revenue. I could see core a having one hundred million in subscription revenue in the first year. So let me make that just very easy. Matthew hundred dollars a year? One million people paying g think there's a million people out there pay for Cora if a hun- over one hundred million people are paying for Netflix. I think there's a million people who would pay for Cora, I would pay I would pay hundred dollars a year for five bucks month. No problem. Easy peasy. So that is a fabulous naive. Outsider question. You obviously do not understand. How the venture business works or how rich people think? But that's fine. That's why core exists is for you to get informed. So congratulations. Hey, everybody.

This is incredible. You're amazing. I couldn't get my partners around it. But we're totally rooting. For you because VC's will lie, and we'll have the VC's up in the next panel.
