Stay Relevant With An Annual Logo Remix Calendar
"I've always been a fan following. The be boys do especially when it comes to things like marketing and branding because let's face it. These guys have got the money and the resource to generally do it pretty right. When it comes to the logo remix Google is probably the best known company out there. That doesn't anytime that there's a special event, it say Valentine's Day or Christmas. Patrick's Day or Earth Day. Google mix up they logo will change it so that it's relevant to whatever that theme or that event is for that day or those couple of days. Now, you could do something similar mean. Nike?

Now, the best place to start is probably with local holidays and you'll particular region because they events that everybody will recognize. It's easy to build packages and promotions around.

You could even ever a drawing competition or design competition amongst your your fans and your friends and your followers go to the local school, get them to design logos, and that could be part of your story. Try Not to make it too gimmicky. You WanNa, make it relevant to the day. You don't want to change it all the time, but I do think it is an intelligent way that you can help stay relevant in terms of what's going on around you in your country in your region in your locality by simply mixing up your logo, still want to stay true to the logo thing you want to make it not make people know and make them aware that it is still your logo. But, mix it up a little bit. Do a little bit of a Google doodle.

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and Neil Patel, and today we are going to talk about something really interesting. That's happening right now while we're GonNa talk about the pure one import transaction and what we can learn from it but we. A little context here as to when recording this. This is July twenty, second twenty twenty where still in the midst of Covid, and so what's going on as a lot of these companies retailers are going bankrupt. They were already shaky, and this was basically nail in the coffin for them. So they've had to basically liquidate. Neil. I'm sure you've looked into this deal a little bit. What do you know about it? Can you kind of pay some white as to WHO's kind of spearheading this as well? Sure. So there's a guy named Alex, ooh Zeus Anti Lopez. Many guys know about the guy has a. Car. Garage union, it's at. Times really smart. So ty ended up techno was but a lot of people look at Thai Guy who's pushing Lamborghini, and there's not much more to. What ty analysis decided to do was leverage on leverage. Our audience gets a ton of investors in go out there in go leverage their audience and going by these struggling e-commerce. First one they did was dressed farm about her pennies on the dollar. Now, the buying pure one, and then from there, they turn around the company's make him grow at the fat. And you got a really solid business in part, audience built brand lowliest do the bat and off. Yeah I mean, if you think about it, it's it was initially, they agreed on a twenty one, million dollar deal in the pure one came back and said, we want thirty million. So I think it's a thirty million dollar deal now, but to Neal's point, it's pennies on the dollar, the work de Sweat equity that's been put in over the years and years. They don't necessarily need all the retail shops anywhere. You take the brand, make everything. Go Onto ECOMMERCE. You'RE GONNA go. So, you're going to print money what turns action. It's super simple. It's effective and I wish more people thought about things that way a lot of people want to build businesses from scratch. The hardest part is building easier. Part is growing muscle were marketers cutting back in grown company has already a billion dollars revenue. They're not fall role while. Is it okay by for pennies on the dollar, you cut the fat and made two billion anymore, but they slew one, hundred, million. So that really amazing business, right? I was listening to that yesterday. So Nike originally, they were slated for their online revenue to be about thirty percent for twenty, twenty three. I at the target now is fifty percent. So the already shot past that. So a lot of stuff is accelerated. Yes. We know that they're not getting a lot of offline transactions, but would this basically means if you look at shop advice stock a lot of stuff ECOMMERCE which is accelerating. Yet, and before this year roughly percent of online transact commerce transaction rebound online that. And sure after cheers Emmy going down a little bit, but it's still gonNA. Be Way higher than where started. Yeah I think at least one of the lessons from me here is you have to look at the Times what are people used to right now, and is it just a business model? tweak where you remove the retail component? The you know the in store component and you just switch it to online and boom. You're you're good to go. 'cause people are tied to the original kind of appear one management team might be tied to hey, we should keep the stores people stuck with doing things the old way by once you remove the emotion from it wants you just be used a objective and you think about it from a business perspective everything changes anything else. Let's it in the last thing you should take away from pure wants to Techn- idea something as donor to book by its cover. A lot of people a judge tyler. This guy is in smart steam

Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

When you have clinicians who you are well into their careers, and they never heard of this thing and the only context in which they have heard about.

She has her full-time people who are on salary or their day in and day out, and then she has any number level of prevents assistance that are coming in on a needed basis in all the way down through interns who are also there for a short period of time, but day in and day out, and so it depends on where you are in. That tree is a freelance assistant I got to Canada's coming in come out of a couple of shoots and. You know for me. It was A. It was a fantastic experience. I think that. I was the best photo system I was going to be by the time I got to work with Anne which was very good for me, because I was one of six assistance on on set, and I was the. Fourth or third on the hierarchy, so I was getting asked do stuff that was not super complicated like setting up stands like setting up lights. Things that were very easy to me because I had done them thousands of times before so I was able to do that job very well without putting a ton of my brain power into a per. Se So I was able to at the time. Really kind of visualize taken everything that was happening on set. An. That was a that was awesome for me. I really enjoyed my experience You know I think it's different. It's different. Bene- first assistant as well as not to any and I. Set of experience because experiences because there's so much more. Weight on your shoulders and so much more responsibility on your shoulders to your part of the team on a day to day. Basis on, and you learn a ton doing matt to. I mean if I ever was the for going to become the first assistant Liebowitz. I probably would still be there now. I would be here so I would have a different path. so I'm really happy with what I ended up doing. There I ended up learning so much. I learned what it takes to. Have the quality that she has and the quantity of output that she has which is unrivalled in industry. I mean people. People have their qualms about her work on some people love it. Some people dislike it. I, consistently say no one else in the world is putting out the cover of vogue. The cut the cover of Vanity Fair and a Nike campaign all in a three week period it just she's the only person that can do it on because of the because of the infrastructure that she's built, and that was the biggest thing. I walked away with I I when I stopped to six Randy I said to myself right then and there. I'm not any LIEBOWITZ right now, but I'm GONNA I'M GONNA make my operation. Move as if I were and it might it might be only a tenth of the size, but I'm going to operate using the same structures and the same kind of
Inside Washington's Name Change
"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.
Comets, Night Sky, and More
"So this comic comment Neil wise really has been a delight I mean I. Don't think people really knew about it until March and then suddenly. Now, they're saying. This is a very visible comment. In fact, in some instances, you can see it with the naked eye, and certainly can see it with Nike and our cameras will have no problem seen at all. If we have good conditions, and so I'm pretty excited about this now. Up until this point up until really today where I live in California. You had to get up in the wee hours of the morning. to photograph which I don't mind I I. Mean I'm an Early Guy, I get up pretty early, but when I read that when we get to you know the thirteenth and the fourteenth. And the fifteenth, of July then we can start to see it above the northern horizon not too far above five to ten degrees depending on where you are above the northern horizon. In the evening. The evening which I really like because you know I, get up in the morning I I tend to do my work and do all that sort of stuff and I can do all of that I can do a full day's work. Have everything ready to go and then celebrate in the evening? Maybe get out there a little early do a little twilight photography, which is always fun right? Maybe shoot the comet if I can get a good anglong and get a good view of it, and then just keep hanging out and see what else I find. You can get a good shot of the Milky Way. So I'm pretty jazzed about this because I have to tell you. I can't be the only person thinking Oh. My God I can't take another picture of the cat or the walk. I do every day or you know. This routine that I mean the Rut. That I am in during shelter in place in terms of the physical out, there is about six feet deep right now, walking into so much I'm getting a lot done inside and being productive and doing all that stuff. That's great work. You know I I've been disciplined and focused and productive. Yeah, but in terms of the stuff that I really like in terms of getting out there and mixing it up in the city, doing some street, photography, or traveling or even going out to eat. You know all that kind of stuff. No. Hasn't been any of it and I really want to take a picture of something different than what I see every day and I think this. This is a good opportunity I don't even have to go very far. I'm scanning out some locations tomorrow. Night's GonNa. Be My first night. Actually tonight is going to be my first night. Because as you're listening to this, it's Tuesday yes. So I mean right now. It's Monday for me. That's you know there's my head right there. Tomorrow, Night's GonNa be my first night, and then if it doesn't go as well as I want, or if I learned some things that I wanted to apply again I'm GONNA. Go Out Wednesday night to supposed to have clear skies both nights up here in northern California for this type of photography the comments going to be about five to ten degrees above the horizon, so I need to find a good spot. I'm working on that right now. And I'm just going to get out and do some shots I'm GonNa do some shots now. My view of the comet shot for me anyway, and and I have shot comments before Hale Bopp I shot Haley's comet out in the desert out of Joshua Tree. Way Back when with film with CODA color like something, crazy cutter via our four hundred or something like that. It's a very grainy shot, but it's sharp in. It's actually quite beautiful I. Still Look At. It sometimes got Joshua Trees in the foreground all that. I'm not going to go out to the desert for this, but i. do have some good locations around here scouting them out right now for tomorrow night. And? Go out and just see if I'm really lucky if I have a great night when I go out. I have a great night I have the possibility of getting like two or three or four different shots in one photo shoot I love that especially after the drought that I've been in just in recent weeks. So I thought okay, let's talk about this. Is Talk about you know how to prepare talk about you know what to look for? Because a lot of you I'm sure in the same boat as me. This might sound appealing is a different kind of assignment begun. If we could even compare shots, you know if I get a shot and you get a shot and all that maybe I'll do a facebook post where we can compare shots well. Listen how goes first. And then we'll, we'll take it from there. So I've got five things that I have learned from doing these sort of shoots that I. Want to share with you right now. Really I mean a lot of this stuff. You're GONNA probably already. Know more what I'm trying to do today. Is this get you excited about going out and doing this and hoping that you will go out and do it if you have the opportunity to do so?

Washington Football Team shedding name after 87 years
"Not confuses the Washington NFL team is not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They go to change their name a long time ago. Instead, they waited until they lost sponsor money and support and in the end, they're still going to make money on this name change. I think when you look at the current climate that we're in, you know people are standing up for what they believe is right. And, uh, you know, you see a lot of protests going on, not just here domestically but internationally as well. Also, this was the ideal time to put pressure on Sundays, neither to change the nickname and because of the pressure he's receiving from prominent sponsors. You know prominent shareholders, the bottom line was starting to be affected. Washington's NFL team retires. That name long condemned is an anti indigenous slur team hasn't said what the name will be yet sounds like we'll find out this week. Took years of efforts from Native American groups. And it's on ly happening because FedEx, which on the stadium naming rights, and Nike and tons of other sponsors were pulling their ad revenue. Nike pulled the merchandise off their website. So did Amazon. Washington owner Daniel Snyder that doing this because he's a good guy, and he knows it's the right thing to do in 2013 remember, he said he would never in all caps, never change the name. No money talks.
Washington Redskins shedding name after 87 years
"Is changing its name. In a statement today, the Redskins confirmed they're retiring that name and their logo NPR sports correspondent Tom Goldman is following this story time. Good morning. Morning, Steve. I've paid attention to the city where I lives football team for some years and I remembered a quote went looked it up and it was accurate in 2013. Dan Snyder, the owner, said quote We will never change the name of the team. So what changed? Yeah, And he also said all caps. You can write that in all caps. So Steve in all caps were were saying today that Washington Redskins are retiring that name. As you said a very brief statement. The team released the name The logo are will be gone. So after 87 years of having this name and decades of protest against it, it is gone. Don't know the new name. We don't know yet, You know in this brief statement, It also said that Washington owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design an approach that will enhance the standing of our proud tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years. The delay right now reportedly is having to work out trademark issues. Some of the most popular names, though, that have been mentioned the red wolves, the Warriors, the red tails in honor of the Tuskegee Airman, the African American fighter squadron that flew in World War two. Their planes had crimson tails, so those could be possibilities. Well, let's remember what the argument was about here. For many, many years, the team had been accused of having a racist name and a racist logo. They had resisted and said they were honoring Native Americans and In various ways and clear the clearly There was a lot of money at stake on that would be one reason that Dan Snyder had said We're not going anywhere with this name. What made this moment? Different? Well, as you well know, there have been, you know, as you say, protests reaching back to the 19 seventies, but obviously the pressure really mounted since the police killing of George Floyd in late May. You know, we have seen a number of symbols, flags and statues change and come down and the Washington team wasn't immune to that pressure, but But, you know, I hate to be cynical here, Steve. But what really got them thinking hard was when sponsors made it clear there needed to be a change FedEx whose name is on the stadium. In Maryland, Pepsi, Nike to name a few All said they wanted changed another important factor The team has wanted to relocate to Washington, D. C. It's original home. FedEx Field is in Maryland. The team practices in Virginia, DC politicians say we'd love to have you back, but you've got to change the name of your team. So that that factored in as well. Our other teams facing similar pressure. Yes, they are, whether they will respond the same way. We don't know. The Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball report earlier discussing a change the Atlanta Braves of Majorly of Major League Baseball say they won't change their name, but reportedly, they're mulling whether or not to prohibit the Tomahawk chop. The chant and the chopping motion that fans used during games. You know, lots of college teams over the years of jettison controversial names with not a lot of pushback. There will be a long time. Washington fans upset about this because it is changing a long held tradition, but the team will go forward. Tom. Thanks very much.
The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading
"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.

"Aren't fakes. They're real nike products. It's just Nike. Doesn't have control over them. When if Nike is biggest concerns concerns was this whole gray market of products that are sold on Amazon by that I mean random people going out and buying legitimate nike products and selling I'm on the platforms and they could have bought them from an off? Price chain sale from Nike and then go sell it on Amazon. Why is it such a bad thing for Nike that there are these gray market sellers on Amazon because they don't have control of the brand in the way that it's shown they want to be the seller of Nike products? They they want to dictate what shoes are available. Essentially what prices. And if they're all these third party vendors that are buying shoes and selling them then it's sort have it messes up with Nike's strategy in terms of how they interact with consumers. Is that kind of. That's true and also it kind of floods the market. So there's all these thousands of Nike products available on Amazon. There's less incentive for somebody to go to a store and purchase Nike or go to Nike Store and purchase Nike. You WanNA maintain some level of exclusivity inclusivity for your brand that. You're dictating the terms in which those products are being sold. Nike's lack of control over how these third parties is priced and sold Nike gear on Amazon posed. A business risk. It wasn't illegal but it wasn't how Nike would prefer to have it's good sold. That was is made even worse by another problem. That Nike had with Amazon counterfeits were popping up on the site and that could further undermine the brand then in twenty any seventeen Amazon and Nike hatched a possible solution for years before this Amazon had been trying to win over Nike. Aki Amazon's courtship of Nike dated back several years. The company had flown to its headquarters in Beaverton Oregon several times at one of the meetings. Jeff Wilkie flew there himself and he's a Jeff bezos. Deputy Severi top senior Amazon executive going to Oregon to do Nike. Would you send a top up executives. That's usually a signal that you really want to create a strong partnership Amazon. One of the credibility of big brands selling directly on its is platform but Nike had consistently refused. Nike is already one of the biggest apparel companies in the world and they're distributed in lots of stores including including their own so finding new customers wasn't much of a draw and Nike was reluctant to join Amazon to begin with because it had problems with the away. It's brand would be presented on the site. The thing that really gives a lot of brands pause is the fact. That Amazon is kind of the everything store. It's like where you buy toilet paper and really cheap items and so they don't want to be seen in that environment. Where every product you just flip through and two shirts hurts our next to each other? If Nike joined Amazon it wouldn't just be losing control of the brand rand presentation. It also be losing control of the customer. So Nike doesn't want to sell you a sneaker. It wants you to sell you. Everything like a sturt a bag to go with at some pants if they can bring you into their store and into their experience they can get you to buy a second item or third item whereas if you go and buy on Amazon you buy your sneaker and then you turn around and you look at the next branch could be a competitor Nike. They don't get to keep the customer the same way that they can win. They're using the sneakers APP or their own Nike Anky shopping APP. All of these factors lead Nike to resist Amazon's overtures to join but when Nike and Amazon were talking in twenty seventeen Amazon offered offered something to try and get Nike on board. It had to do with that gray market Amazon did was they used that as a bargaining chip If you come on our platform crackdown on these random people. That are selling your products. You'll have so much more control. You create a brand page and let's do a test. And why wasn't this something. That Amazon was willing to clamp down on without Nike joining. The platform itself Amazon wants as many sellers as possible to join the platform. They want people to be buying goods and selling them and it's very easy to sign up for an Amazon account and become an Amazon seller for Amazon Getting Nike itself on board could compensate forgetting those third parties off the side and so they started negotiating over a plan. If Nike officially joined Amazon the Journal reported at the time Amazon would block third parties from selling the same items that Nike whistling. And it would do that. By tracking the unique item number that every product has then. Something happened the gave the negotiation some urgency in good morning topping America's money trouble for major retailers points authorities filed for bankruptcy and announced plans to close or sell about one hundred and forty of its stores. That's nearly nearly one third of its location. Sports Authority was one of the biggest sellers of Nike products and when it went into bankruptcy it had an estimated. Four hundred million dollars is worth of Nike inventory. All of it was sold off at rock bottom prices. This was great news for some of those third party sellers. Suddenly they could buy. I A bunch of cheap Nike Merchandise and put it on Amazon but it was bad news for Nike. Not only were there more products outside. Its control it but it also just lost one of its biggest distributors under this new pressure in twenty seventeen Nike accepted. Amazon's offer at the time Nike. He said it was quote looking to improve Nike consumer experience on Amazon. But it didn't work out exactly as planned bats after the break..

"And so it fell I think in the in the phrase that I use the pieces like it really felt like the shoe was grafted onto my foot. Like, I was stepping on the court and had that field kind of barefoot contact despite the fact that I was clad in kind of three hundred fifty dollars worth of weird synthetic fabrics parachute cord and all the other. Things that go into this shoot the tech at any weight shoe, so the shoe size nine which is kind of the the way people communicate the weight of shoe is right on the nose a pound. And so it's heavier than some is lighter than others. Lebron's tend to be a little bit heavier. Kyrie's KD's tend to be lighter. So it's kind of right down the middle. It's not going to be the lightest basketball shoe you've ever worn. But it's also going to be something that you don't really notice weight wise, why isn't Nike offering these in women's sizes. They are. I mean, WNBA players have definitely put the shoe through its paces. They haven't announced specific WNBA players who are going to wear it on the court. And again, I think that that's a reflection of the fact that this is a shoe that's catered to actual professional athletes who've WNBA players are going to have bigger feet. Then kind of civilian women just like NBA players are coming in its size fifteen through eighteen and you're right. That Nike is making nine and tens and shoes for the rest of men who don't have NBA sized fee. I don't know why they're not doing it for women's feet. Yeah. There was a report that said that the women could technically wear think the equivalent of Nate and a half if they go with the men's sizes, but. It doesn't size lower than that women. Professional w w player who has seven. You're out of luck times. People are buying these by the team, right? Young teams by them for the whole team. I think college is on the thing seems by them for the whole came. In the associate in the NBA. I actually don't know how the end WNBA does this with kind of endorsements and what people get is players, obviously players have signature models players have endorsement deals to where other people's shoes as long as there with the company, and then shoe companies will provide athletes with basically cases of shoes. Like, there's some shoes that are like the standard issue from be players like the, hyper Dunkin, hyper zoom, it's just like if you don't have a signature shoe, you're probably gonna be wearing one of those two sneakers unless you're a sneaker head, and you just wanna flex out on the court and you wear like retro Kobe's, which happens all the time. Especially in my house. There's so there's this completely other story, which is an in the Nike piece. But like there's this kind of flexible that's going on in the NBA the rules got changed. The you can wear shoes that are outside of your team's color palette. So there are certain players who just wear different pair every game. And they were shoes have been around in fifteen years. They were Jordan's. They were these crazy custom designed. So there's the sneaker culture in the NBA is a crazy thing that rivals sneaker culture in the world at large how that intersects with this particular shoe is I think players will probably be furnished with them by Nike, even if there's not a solid endorsement deal. Like, Jason Tatum orthodontic. But they invited a bunch of young up and coming stars to campus last year and had them scrimmage in the shoe. So it's not like a guarantee and nothing has been announced. But I would guess that. You're gonna see a ton of rookies and promising second year players in the NBA and the WNBA wearing these Kelsey Plum was in that NBA in the basketball scrimmage that Nike had on campus. I'm sure she's going to be wearing them on court. I'm sure we're going to see people like Aaron FOX from Sacramento Kings and Jordan bell on the warriors wearing them. And so I think Nike's idea is you see this with young players. They're comfortable if you can get their behavior changed early. Maybe they can avoid some of the damage to their feet over over years time. Yeah. And if that starts to change the culture Nike stand to have kind of an entirely different layer of infiltration into a leaguer leagues. They're already at kind of critical mass..

"I think the the tricky question of cabinet is that he really he sacrificed career and Nike has stepped in as this sort of corporate benefactor. Yeah, it's uncomfortable. I definitely don't blame him for taking money from Nike because he is effectively blacklisted from his chosen profession. I see it from his perspective as this is an opportunity to have a really powerful backer help spread his message on. I definitely wish that the Nike commercial had like touched on police brutality against black people like it didn't really. It just sort of year advertisement is very, you know, I should say kapernick. He narrates the the main commercial. Yeah, but it's all like if very good people say you can't do something, you should do it. You know, it's like it's like all of these vignettes about, we'll say, you're bad at basketball, just play basketball, some more in the ABI, Ron j you know what I mean? If that the commercial is that kind of sentiment. And so it's like you take believe in something even if it means sacrificing everything as a tagline and you look at cabernet, can you understand what the. Stakes of that art and his innocence, but then the just do it campaign universalize is that sentiment to be about athletic commitment. It, you know, it's very hard kids way to where it's like you should. You should try our hardest than do your best so that you can excel. Yeah, and that's a again, it's it's like an appropriate message, but it also feels like a reductive again, it's like a child if occasion of wit happening, specific usage of that sort of messaging. Yeah, it's definitely turning very pointed activism into advertising for shoes. Right. What do you think like he bought into this? Because I think Nike knew that this would result in sales bump, or I mean, they couldn't know for certain. Obviously, it was a gamble. In terms of like how this campaign would be received, but like Nike is Nike, Michael Bowman, who like are very smart sportswriter colleague wrote about this and one one thing that he wrote that really stuck with me was he said, you can't build a multibillion dollar company from scratch and fifty four years of social Justice as anything approaching a primary concern. Companies like Nike are by nature aggressively amoral when I think he's spot on, and I think that Nike assess the situation and determined that more people would buy Nike shit because of this ad. And that was the bottom line. If they assess the situation and thought that more people would buy Nike shit if they're ad was like stand for the. Yeah. Why would like I don't think that someone at Nike is like actually invested in this 'cause or maybe they are, but they're not invested in this caused above selling actually is an interesting word in that case is I mean they are actually invested in so much as investment is paying governor that is an actual investment, but it's more like, are they spiritually or they politically invested and if anything, I think there there are two ways look at it, right? It's like at best you can say there may be not politically invested in the same way or in the same spirit that happening is, but they're visited like passively financially invested in. And at worst, you can look at Nike and say in the long term, does this actually undermined the messaging? Is this undermine caps outlook on his protests as a way to get more people talking. About police brutality, if the Maki advertisements are going to come along and reconnect showlights his words as being about like encouraging kids to play tennis or whatever..

"Your truly thoughts. Nike is the only person here. Who's intent on business and getting paid. That's where your social issues sit today in two thousand eighteen, but it's still an important issue whether Nike decides to commercialize it or not. It can still be an important issue. Even as a sneaker campaign might feel like it cheapens it, but let's get more will Cain here. You can hear him everyday after our show. I don't work up the level of outrage of the people out there, obviously burning their Nikes on social media or even those that are upset about it. I'm not upset about it. Not said about Nike Knopp said about capital. The only thing I would say is this day DEA the cabinet sacrificed. Everything. That to me was a misstep that's a message that could upset people and that a message understandably like really becoming the spokesman for Nike getting multimillion dollar endorsement campaign with Nike giving a pro football career that sacrificing everything I understand people that go, please put that in context. Even on these issues. Look at guys, you don't have to do the military thing. You don't have to talk about the people have given up. In your life. You can even talk about the people who gave up in the fight for civil rights much more than the everything. It's insinuated. Colin cabinet gave up. It's just a little much to say Colin Kaepernick, sacrificed everything after Stephen as show. That's a fun. What we'll hear from Stephen a. on this issue because of kapernick is being discussed somewhere. He sometimes will arrive as well by bumper car or by rocket ship, or by by the transportation out of Syracuse from the Syracuse football locker room. Stephen, a Smith can also be heard after our show and he had opinions on Colin Kaepernick. We're not aware to capitol knew it would sacrifice everything because he didn't announce to the world what he was doing. He just took a knee and the local and national media ignored it for weeks. And then after he was asked, he told them why he was taking the knee, but even after that, he was still on a roster, he was still playing. And when he left the opted out of his own contract cabinet wasn't aware, it would cost them everything. There was no plan. He. Here. Why do you think the players coalition got they own plan but cap, Nick every day was another terms of teammates have the own vision. There's no orchestrated devised plan here. This never been. He meant Eric Reid. Yeah, you can't hear both after our show. That's impossible. They don't do a show together. It's Stephen a. after us will Cain does three eight, six. We're done on a radio station. We're no radio network, but they they do do a show together though, and that show is for stay. Right. But he Dan, it said both those guys shows were on after our show here on the radio station. They are both after our ES but not directly after hours. I mean, we'll k. and you gotta sit through two hours of Stephen, a Smith until you get before you get to will Cain. That's why I just, I'm not certain if you knew the lineup, that's all directly after us. Right. And then the the other ones directly after that, that is correct. Yes. Yup. Stephen, a. first and then we'll Kane is second, right? Let's hear some more from Stephen, a Smith on how Nike has hijacked this story. Everybody sitting up there and they saying Nike, Nike ahead of the curb Nike on the right side of history, Nike, Nike, Nike. Well, Bravo, Nike. Congratulations for being so damn OB. Obvious. Here's my question, the Nike where the hell have you been two years for the list? Two years. You have been paying Colin captaining. Where would he advertisements? Where was the marketing? Where would it t shirts and shoes? Where was that at those merchandise? What was going on you bit late to the party and so that Nike has jumped on a bandwagon essentially hijacking, the issue of selves.

We'll find out, you know, obviously in a few months with the bottom line numbers are when a stock report. Yeah, live too far. Anyone boycotted that line could be good. Short, same with Chick-fil-A.

I was very, very fortunate because cap sent this to me yesterday to give me a heads up that they were going to be releasing it. So I'm happy for him. There's two sides of this for me. I'm happy that he's able to get some support by someone who's been doing it for a long, long time, and someone. Who I respect. I was a Nike athlete for at least twenty five years. Nike athlete went to Nike school at Ohio State and sign with Nike and word Nike throughout my career, and Nike is provided me with merchandise for a long, long, long, long time. So I must say that before my my comments, I'm happy to have someone like Nike because Nike does get behind edgy campaigning, and that is real support people out to say, hey, you know something, I got your, I got your back. I got your support, but with Nike gets behind you, especially in something in athletic field, you really have some strong support, but the other side of it, I still see a kid, not a man is trying to make people more aware, but I still see a kid who's not going to be able to play the National Football League. We're getting star ninety nine season and you still got you. Got quarterbacks, Blake Bortles there in Jacksonville, is he to answer you got a quarterback situation in buffalo. They just got. Traded a quarterback, put in a guy, threw five interceptions in the first half and the guy to drafted in the first round not going to play him. So for me, I'm saying that he's not playing in the league because to me, that's the end game. All right. The best players playing in the league cap, sit steel be playing, but he has tremendous support from Nike. I'm happy he's able to move forward because I don't think you'll ever put on NFL uniform again, and I'm going to take some slight issue. One of the things you said in the lead up, which is Nike betting that it's not going to alienate customers. I disagree Nike knows it's going to Elliott certain people with this. I think they're making a twofold one that there are other people that will redouble their support for Nike or maybe folks that used to be Adidas or Under Armour fantasy. You know what? I'm gonna go support Nike in support of cap, but also Nike is looking to me that you're looking at this on a much longer time horizon than the less next. Quarterly balance sheet and the next stock market open. They are saying, what have we represented this? Our thirtieth anniversary? What have we represented for thirty years?.

People wanna make it something different. It's about the flag. It's about disrespecting veterans. You've heard those arguments that's big lesson. Number one people are going to miss understand your message. You can be crystal clear about it. You can spell it out. You can put it in writing. You can say, this is what I'm trying to do. People are gonna put their own spin on it. Knowing this you've got three options. You can put the message out anyway, speak your truth. You can soften the message, try to make it a little bit more palatable, so it doesn't have that kind of backlash, three don't say anything. That's what most people do. Everybody's got an opinion. They lived a spouted on social media. They love to remain anonymous, talk about it in their homes. But when it comes to a podcast, how many people are actually saying anything, not many. Big, listen, number two do not. She's in that first option. Speak your truth. What's the point? What's the point? Let's say you've got a religious broadcast a Christian podcast. You're Christian, you believe in Jesus. Are you going to say you believe in Jesus? Are you gonna talk about a higher power, soften that message, make it a little bit more palatable. Bring people in who may be are offended by Jesus. What are you going to do? Higher power is not going to connect Christians and if you're Christian, that's not your belief anyway. Now I could give you a million examples of this, but I'm not here to give you examples. I'm here to have you think about your message. What is your message? I'm here to let you know that it is okay for you to repel people. That's big lesson number three here just as many people love Nike today as eight them maybe more. When some people saw that ad. This man, Nike gets me, Nike gets what this guy's trying to do. He gets how I feel and they love Nike even more. Was it risky? Hell? Yeah, it was risky. Anything worth doing is risky. You're gonna put your voice to a podcast, put it out into the world. Once it's out, it's out. You don't know who's going to hear it. Maybe some people going to hear it that you don't want to hear. That's a risk. Some people are going to disagree with you. Some people are going to leave you bad reviews. Some people are going to send you a non emails. It happens even at a small level, your podcast go into podcasting, Facebook group, people get into arguments over the dumbest things. Now that Mike sucks. Don't use that. Mike. It sucks. Who cares? The right? Mike is the one that you got in front of you the right Mike is the one that enables you get your podcast out, who cares about microphones you people get into arguments about them. So imagine when he gets into something important, something that really matters, big social issue, something like injustice, police brutality, health care war people are opinionated about those things. And if you talk about any of those things, you're going to get backlash that Christian podcast that I mentioned. I see this happen all the time with Christian authors. They are in a hard place. You think you got a bad magin being a Christian author get Christians on top of Christians. Now it's not Jesus enough. He didn't praise God in the way I wanna praise God. You got the eighth yeast in there. This is to Christian too much Jesus. You can't please anybody. You got to please yourself. You fly your flag. That's what Nike's doing. We'll pay off. We'll see too early to tell today, their stock dropped a little bit, but now he's been around for a long time. Thirty years of the just do a campaign that's his call and cabinet campaign is about. He's not the only athlete involved in this new campaign. Just the guy getting the most press right now from a business standpoint, I think it was brilliant. What did indeed is due today? It's too late for them to make a bold move like this. They look like followers same thing for your podcast or you're going to lead or are you going to follow? We all want listeners. We all want the people to love what we have to say before people want to lead do you. You need to act like it. That means taking. Stand. Are you gonna repel some people? Yes. Hell, yes, you're going to repel some people, but some people are going to love you even more the Nike Swoosh it means something different today. And while there are few people that are burning their Nike stuff, making a big deal about it. There are other people that are going out to the mall to stores like Amazon by Nike stuff, and they're going to wear it in a totally different way. This is a long game just like your long game. We're not going to be thinking about the stock dropping for a couple of days if you years from. Now, we're going to be thinking about who took a stand on this issue and maybe they lost money, but it's a big company they can afford to lose money. You can afford to lose a few listeners by speaking your truth and keeping the listeners that are really into you and making them true fans speak your truth and focus on those people.

"You like that dingy Devon as you just playing the loop back, I thought we're going to. I created everyone just waits that is that's like one of the youth, the match light, and then you get the first verse of guess who's back and it goes right back to it. That is absolutely gonna mess with me. Podcast, audience, joy, this one. It's been a morning around here. Man, I, there are a lot of very serious things that happened in the world of sports and a lot of things that I think we need to enjoy. And that's one of my favorite things about the Dan lebatardshow that you can hear from ten to one AM eastern every Monday through Friday here on ESPN radio is that they managed to somehow address those serious issues while still enjoying something that is particularly humorous. And while we all didn't like to see Nick Sabin act like jerkin post game, press conference with someone that we all know in like around here in Rio Taylor who's just doing her job, this sound bite. So in conjunction with Nick Sabin that we heard yesterday just to be clear on something is I love all of our players on that side by side to me is funny, and I hope we can all sit here and admit that. So we've got that going on this morning. We've got Nike rolling out a new ad campaign with Colin capper, Nick yesterday, shocking lot of The people. people that he'd been on the payroll for so long and Nike is right now, I think four between Nike, the just do it campaign that is thirty years old that they made Colin apart of and cabinet himself. It is about four of the top trending topics in the United States right now, which lets me know that Nike is at least to some extent accomplish what they were seeking out to do. And we heard from one of the Nike executives of this was an ad campaign targeted at fifteen to seventeen year old kids. And we saw strong reaction from people that were not fifteen to seventeen that were little bit unhappy and took to Twitter to do things like burn shoes and cut off the Swoosh logos of their socks, which I didn't really understand. It was like the sound guy for big and rich has. Is there anything you hate enough to cut off the top portion of your socks? I'm talking the socks, go past the ankles because you are really inconveniencing yourself after already handing over your money into them. Also does Nike care enough about socks sales to really be affected by that? I think it's probably not the best. Form of protest in all these things because you're just walking around with that awful feeling of your socks sliding down your feet. And no one wants that I last year on ESPN radio and the ESPN app waiting awhile for this one guys..
