Fire TV 4-Series Announced

"And today I want to tell you about another new product in the new line of TVs that Amazon has put out. If you listened yesterday to the flash briefing, you know that I talked about the fire TV Omni series, which has hands free voice control. Meaning you actually don't even need a remote. You just talk to the TV. The difference is, of course, with those TVs that require remote. And that is where the Amazon fire TV four series comes in. So what is this? It is a four K ultra high def resolution TV. It's got support for HDR ten and HLG. So that's got great picture quality. And it includes a 43 inch, a 50 inch and a 55 inch model size in that lineup. Of course, it's got a lot of the same Lexi features that you have come to expect. But the difference between the fire TV four series and the fire TV Omni series, again, is that the fire TV four requires the remote, which you can speak to and control XE. And of course, it comes with that. Whereas the Omni one does not even require the remote. You just simply speak to the TV. Now, again, as I mentioned, I am an affiliate for Amazon, and if you choose to use my link then, thank you so much. If you want to check out these TVs, the fire TV four series, you just go to voice in Canada dot CA slash fire TV four. The number four, fire TV four. If you want to check out the Omni series, you go to voice in Canada, dot CA slash fire TV Omni. And that will take you to those TVs. Now, the other thing I just want to mention briefly is the pricing of these. Yesterday I talked about the Omni pricing. But the fire TV four series pricing, the 43 inch is $470. The 50 inch is normally 600, but there is an introductory price right now, which is reflected if you're checking out, which is 460 or 23% off. And then the 55 inch TV is 660. The other thing I forgot to mention is with regards to the fire TV Omni series, the 50 inch also has an introductory sale price. And so normally that one is 650, but the introductory price is 510 or 23% off again reflected at

So for example, you could say Lexi kick off my day and the TV and smart lights can turn on. Lexi can share the weather, for example, can maybe read you your calendar, and then it can just tune in to the news on your buyer TV Omni series TV. The other thing that it does, it allows you to easily connect with other echo devices in your room if you want to do that.

How Many Marketing Channels Is Too Many At A Time?

"We're gonna talk about how many marketing channels is too many at a time. So it's funny. Everyone's like oh. Yeah you need omni channel. And eric and i are big on omni channel. Some people you know ask us like. Aw is it too many ongoing after all these channels on it's like nascar and the answer is it really varies. If you're established business you have tons of people. You have a big team. You ideally want to go after all of them and if you're a small business in the short run you can't go after all the channels you need to go after all the ones that are producing the best results have the potential once. You're getting enough results in revenue than you can expand it add more channels than event. You can get to all about at the beginning. Union folks on the ones that are going to drive the biggest r. y. Yeah let's just use a case study here. So let's compare neal's his social audiences versus mine right so let's start with me. I right so thinking about where. I put my focus right now in this podcast. I spent a lot of time on the siegel brain blog over the years. And you know it's a couple hundred thousand visits a month right now which is great and then the other thing i would say to is for a period of time. I focused on youtube and growing pretty well right every video. Put out relatively speaking for my channel. Maybe a couple of thousand and go to a couple of hundred thousand views right for video and that's really good for the channel size because right now my subscribers about sixty thousand or so. It's like huge rights and so at the time a couple years ago. When i focused on youtube. I was getting those at least a couple of thousand per video now when i post on youtube. I'm lucky i get a couple hundred if even breaks thousand rights. It's because i haven't put as much time to focus on it nor have i built up a really big core audience right. This podcast has night's audience. What i would say. Is you get whatever you focus on at the end of the day right so i focused on single blog for a long four or five years before it broke one hundred thousand visits and now it started to compound and so if you go back and now you think about neil where. He's been doing this for a very long time. She started with the creek sprout blog. First and then he started buildings audiences ob and then from there he built his email list up and he started diversify over to youtube and then the other channels well why he has he kind of started made one really big and then everything they kind of spread out the attention right so there's different ways of doing it but what i've said for most people starting out is which is actually this is what neil that you focus on one first and then you branch out.

Three Signs You Shouldn't Buy Whatever Someone is Selling

"Three signs. You shouldn't buy whatever someone is selling number one when they have king of the puddle syndrome. I'm basically an omni channel marketing ninja. Lucas told us. Once i optimize your seo you'll increase your sales by a thousand percent. I'm the best at what i do. You mean the best within a two mile radius. My intern muttered under her breath. Sending me an i role the marketing ninjas self-confidence was sky high but his pitch read on how do your metric compared to competitors i ask him other digital marketers had shown us track records of two to three point conversion rate increases. But lucas was baffled. It seems he didn't consider that there were others like him out there. But with more data driven sales pitches he stammered. Yep but What i do can't be summed up in a single number. It's complex because i look at the whole picture that's a little vague lucas and we hard lucas. The marketing ninja our investment would probably have vaporized thankfully his pitch fit a pattern that made it quick and easy to rule out. Still people often get fooled by others. Self-confidence it's hard to be the only person in the room thinking. I'll be the judge of that and if you're not a subject matter expert it can be even harder to spot baloney but when you're about to be bamboozled. There are a few ways to tell that self confidence is just camouflage for a lack of substance one. They exhibit king of the puddle syndrome. The only way to be the best at something when you are in fact not the best is to shrink your reference circle until you are the best in the circle. That's how millions of people can claim to be the most sought. After life coaches health experts marketing gurus or ad agencies they could be sought after by millions of clients or merely sought after in their own neighborhood

Do At-Home LED Masks Really Work?

"Led which stands for light emitting. Diode is one of my all time fave treatments to have done. And i know you probably feel like i say that all the time but this one really is. It was about five years ago. That i i started getting only locks which is a type of professional in salon light treatment and it helped clear up my acne more effectively than anything. I'd tried over the decade prior. Now we've done an hoskin expert episode on light therapy and what it does so we will link that in the show notes fee to get more data if you missed it but i'll do a summary for you. Led therapy is noninvasive. It's a treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to visibly improve in rejuvenate the skin. So it's actually nasa technology which is like spice in shish. That's the scientific way to explain. Nassar that was adopted by the skin. Care community thanks to its ability to heal wounds and tame inflammation and actually my lady. That does my omni omni literally said. Look if you've got a really bad injury. Oh cuddle. Something she's like pulpit onto the omni lock slide and it's really good at like healing and timing that inflammation so the different wavelengths target different areas within the skin by sending energy into the cells to stimulate natural cellular responses so the most common lights used the blue light frequencies which is typically used to treat acne. So that's what. I started with all those years ago while red is used for anti aging concerns. So let's chat about the at harm. La mosques that make us a look and feel like power ranges. obviously the ad harm devices a less powerful than the treatments. You'd get at a salon which means it'll take longer and more used to see visible results swear professional. Led treatment would have me looking. Glory town healthy. After a single session. It would take about three to four weeks of daily at home. led mosque to see the similar result. And trust me. i have done that

"Yeah exactly right. And we have seen pretty dramatic wage growth in the leisure and hospitality sectors. Employers are jackie up wages to bring people back but it seems like the effect has only been marginal so far. And you know. We hear from a lot of economists that they have their charts and say well does the you you know. Here's the effect of you. I and here's the effective childcare and so forth but sometimes it's also really good to actually talk to someone in the hiring process and get away from all of the theory that economists like to talk about. I think we preferred here. It's more interesting to talk to people who are involved in shipping or trading lumber or anything that someone with a lot of charts on theories. We've definitely gone very granular. this year. On the other thing. I was thinking like it. Kind of gets into the overall topic of whether or not behavior has changed after the pandemic. Is this a fundamental shift in how people are approaching. Work like going forward. Are there just going to be fewer people who want to work in hospitality. For whatever reason or is this actually a temporary bottleneck or supply shortage. That is going to eventually work itself out. Yeah and just to your point There are like signs everywhere like not only does every place up up has assigned but like you go to a grocery store and it says an advance. Sorry for the slow service and the line where every place has a warning about the. It's really wild. Anyway let's get into it because i'm very excited. We're going to be speaking with someone who's like right in the heart of all this going on. We're going to be speaking with kurt. Alexander here's the cfo at omni hotels which is a big hotel chain that has about fifty locations in north america. All very high end and we're going to get into the nitty gritty of hiring and operations at a hotel in this environment. So kurt thank you very much for joining us. Ed morning joe. Thanks for having me. Yeah thank you so much for coming on before we get into the sort of like environment right now you know. Let's say like go back to say August of twenty nine thousand nine or february twenty twenty before cova. What are you just sort of like. Describe a little bit about labor turnover and the sort of like the labor needs and the general needs of Hotel chain like omni. Yeah absolutely so pre cove it was. It was really a tough operating environment than encoded. Really magnified in accentuated. A lot of things that were going on which i think has been common across all sectors every pocket of life. That covered has just kind of accentuated. Transfer were already in place and so pre covet. We had about twenty two thousand employees work for us. Unfortunately over the next sixty days from february to april we got down to about eighteen hundred people so it was pretty quick shift but but you know pre covet just to touch on some of the trends kind of things that we're seeing we're seeing mid-single-digit wage growth in the hourly workforce consistently turnover about thirty percent a year again kind of in the hourly workforce ranks and a particular need for culinary talent and so cooks sous chefs etc even even kinda waiters waitresses than like But but mainly back a house culinary and it was really not even a function of wages. It was more functional skills and so we had a lot of conversations pre covert about. How can we kind of build our own workforce so to speak in you know we have a lot of destination resorts and we thought about..

"So tracy obviously one of our big themes so far for the podcast and i guess for the economy overall has been the sort of like shortages and bottlenecks that People have experienced across across business across supply chains in the wake of the crisis bottlenecks everywhere in everything feels like sometimes and of course one of those bottlenecks is in the labor market. Yeah exactly right like this. Is i would say the one other sort of like big thing that we we've yet to really talk about. Which is that numerous businesses largely in leisure and hospitality. But not just that area have voiced. I i don't know. Frustration is the word but have certainly found hiring to be much more difficult to be expected especially coming out of a downturn and even much more difficult than it was pre crisis at economists of all kinds of theories for why of but it's clearly a phenomenon of this environment that makes this moment Distinct and is posing challenges to various managers bosses and companies. Yes so. I'm obviously not in the state so i've sort of been watching this issue from afar. It's not such a big thing in hong kong. As far as i can tell. But i've seen some of the anecdotes about this like you know signs on the front of fast food restaurants saying that you can't open today because they don't have enough employees or some of their employees didn't show up i also know it's a very heated issue at the moment with you know it's sort of like a classic labor versus capital kind of issue at this point with a lot of the companies blaming workers and saying they don't wanna come back to work because they're afraid of getting cove it or because maybe they're getting unemployment benefits through the government and so they don't feel compelled to go to work and then the workers saying wow if you really want us to come back. Why don't you actually do something to encourage us and raise wages. I mean that's the obvious thing for them to do

"While we are thrilled to have you here. Thank you so much for joining us. Re as hey sir. Great to be here so happy to have you and excited to hop into our topic today now. A lotta times when we talk about a i. We're talking about okay. How are we going to serve the customers. How are we going to use it to execute. But what. I'd like to start off with today. Is how do we use to better understand customers. So that's a that's a great question adam and you know the way. Ai helps is. It helps us with the problem of scale for example. If you're a small business and you have ten customers you don't need a i. Do you need to talk to them. And you know what they feel. And they'll give you feedback the challenges when you have ten million customers and you'll tell me million customers coming at you in different ways. We call it omni channels. You've got customers coming through a website. Maybe calling call center. Maybe doing transactions and retail stores that you might have and interacting with your brand in multiple different ways. That's when you have what we call multiple signals so now you have complexity because you've got all these customers potentially in different parts of the country different parts of the world different languages different channels. What i can help it is. It can help understand the voice of the customer over time and what that means is being able to really pick out the signal from the noise understand a customer's preferences overtime and keep track on. How the customers evolving in their relationship with you. Ai solves that problem at

I might've said basically focuses on baton minding on this action and this isn't support systems. I think a lot of people have a vague conception of what anomaly detection is. You're welcome to give a formal definition or an informal one but to you. What is anomaly detection. A nominee addiction is typically. I'll give you a former left. Nation or infamous sense of what an effective is an omni is defined as anything which dates from the normal. So as against the definition of normal is again dependent on the application or the domain better. You are applying tim. Bontemps insolence example. If you're meeting at a classroom right. So it's you're looking under classroom. And if you're dusted regarding ages of the people present in the classroom on the students typically would have age range between say eighteen and twenty one and maybe professor has in asia injured in party fight. Bless or something. I'm just making this up right. So in that sense. The normal is defined because we are under guarding h defined by maybe the ages Drain so in that sense. The deter would be an anomaly in that sense because teachers age his on her age is like different from the nominal. It's in that sense. That would be anomaly in this case. Essentially a number is a field with strives to unusual activity or unusual observations in a given domain. And that's not a nominalization with and since it's about finding unusual things you typically find applications of anomaly detection intrusion detection save. Fraud detection are even in medical domains. Light say epileptic seizure detection on salon.

Boston Dynamics has a new robot

"It might remember that. Robots spot the one. That kind of looks like a dog. Yeah pretty freaky looking contraption and blew up the internet a little bit too. Yeah definitely so the company behind it. Boston dynamics just announced their latest robot. It's likely not as creepy in his weirdest spot. It's called stretch. And it was designed to work. In warehouses and fulfillment centers stretch features a small omni directional mobile base. A custom designed lightweight arm in a gripper with advanced sensing and controls to handle a variety of packages. There's a video of this in action which you can watch on tech dot usa today dot com and you can actually see how it works. It picks up. Different boxes of varying sizes moves them different places. It actually opens up a box. There's one part which is kind of weird where they the stretch actually grabs one of those spot- robots the dog looking one and picks it up out of a box and then the legs popout which kind of scary. But anyway. But anyway mike it gets to this though it points to a future where we're gonna see a lot more tasks in the workplace and beyond that are automated thanks to robots. Yeah i watched that video and it's really cool. It puts an another point that actually puts in place a conveyor belt. That isn't there and then moves it to the right spot and empties. What looks like a boxcar boxes on that conveyor belt shootout wherever. It's go next. And like you said. I could see where the development of robots stretch you know. Make sense Robots can work any shift. And they don't get injured with a sore back from listen to me box right but the possible downside is this means more jobs possibly dispirit for people so there's some give and take there you know i mean i can see there's almost always got to be a human element but it could be done remotely watching a bunch of cameras because you've got. I saw. It picks up a box if someone didn't pie. Pack that bucks properly and it comes undone you've got stuff flying everywhere so somebody's gotta be prepared to take care of that. But very futuristic. I can see couples like amazon and walmart. You know costco's and places like that definitely in the market for stretch.

Payment trends making noise: What we learned at MPE 2021

"Today's episode we will be recapping. Our thoughts on merchant payment ecosystem n. p. is the event for those in the payments world. Historically it's taken place in berlin but in line with all other events With the majority of twenty twenty and twenty twenty one m p. e. was a virtual event this year So like to kick off the podcast with talking about what was the thoughts on kind of the the virtual or event. How did it compare to previous years. Did you miss the the nice berlin vibe. I'm i'm i'm i'm happy to start off. Think it's a it's a bit of a is also pros and cons with its. I think ultimately all of us and sounds especially to myself who are more sales focused commercially focus in the business. Were we're looking forward to the next face to face events that's for sure for us Socializing berlin going for drinks at the end of the day is certainly something that we look forward. But in saying that it's been it's been an interesting Pasta months especially in trade around. Because there's been a few pros to some of these shows actually quite a few It's already has been been back. The overall we're looking forward to going back to to the shows But it's been it's been a lot of learnings. I think we've experienced from the virtual. Try to just one last thing to add. I think you raise a good point that the platforms of kotok. Certainly there weren't there in pre pandemic world so that's pretty huge pro because we can start using that and other shows and i think we might start seeing a lot on its micro shrimps popping up signs big face to face shows that that might happen on an annual basis but it makes it a little bit tricky for for for us who Eventually presenting these shows because the type of content that you have to present in virtual environments the type of discussions that you're having in a virtual environment a very different to the discussion that you'll be having face to face environment. It's you have to be tayla What you're doing in women's comp- residents who have fifteen minutes slots and that's that's all you got. That's the The idea attention span that you get from your audience in the day. Battling everything from e mails to call to putting a little station in between a whole bunch of meetings that happened. The day competed in the old days where they're mocking a whole day. Because they're face to face gray. And i mean i guess in in general are historically what's been the format of m. p. es at similar to you know a bunny twenty twenty or what makes it such a an important in big event in the world of payments. I think i think from from n. P. e. standpoint one of the big One of the big attractions for russes of business to attendance is is the fact that it's actually a That's on a smaller scale. Compared to money twenty twenty minute reading twenty covers a variety of vote of payments gang Again to t- who risk for example whereas whereas m. p. e. is focus showed from that perspective is one is the attendees. That's ten show us. And our our direct contacts you ultimately were wanting to engage with and speak to a long time those margins good much good new shows that are being sold at Whereas a long time there's a law content allow really useful stuff can take on board. Take back to that headquarters. Whatever is an actually utilize information and not get the noise of game Solutions insulted abso-. I think actually that this this much broadening physical better than someone like us exactly. I mean i think you've you've raised a good point. That's also an opportunity for some of these shows going forward in that a lot of great content is being generated. But it's not being reused a lot of the time you go to a show if you can't attend to toll oxygen ten wine and you miss out on the second tool called the second topic whereas because it's virtual it's being recorded it's on the right platform. They're almost creating payments netflix. Could you can just station will be watchful. The talks to rewatch the ones that into you. If accents which is which is a big opportunity on on the one side so from the merchants attending shows it was proved to be great successor. Difficult for us to tell because we're on the other side. Yeah i mean. I think it from my perspective speaking on these virtual events. It's really hard not to be able to see the audience. And i think you know every one of us who attends the has been attending these events. Mrs being able to really see people and engage in that aspect. It's been difficult. Some some positives negatives but he i mean hopefully perhaps next year we can go back to the physical events and who knows maybe though tak- hybrid approach. But i mean getting into kind of mpe this year so took place between the twenty second to the twenty fifth of february. What were some of the key takeaways for you. Both i mean there were quite a few key takeaways but for me one of those important ones and we might sound like a bit of a broken record because it's been one of the topics But it's definitely being the just the overall rise of digital payments ecosystem and it's not not digital payments in that Online in a digital environment. It's it's the stepping away from a traditional omni channel approach and embiid digital payments in face to face type environments introducing. Qr codes into at based payments for micronutrients for example are becoming very popular and having these solutions available to everyone. They've been available for years and other parts of the world but europe in the us other a wasting economies. Just never they never took them on. There was never a priority. And i think because of what's happened over the last year We were now really starting to see the impact of digital. I approached payments can't versus nominee channel. Approach where you have digital on the one side you have face to face appoint the other. It's actually everything's digital advocates it to that from a first Was the consensus that this was primarily driven by cova and in the past twelve months this push towards truly digital almost like a digital omni experience. So what types. Yeah yeah. I think i think it was a it was quite impressive because everything happened. Lost year everybody. Wins with virtual loss. Jared lockdown and there was a lot of talk about digitally native and there was a lot of toll cabal it's a digital first approach online payments this huge shift towards ecommerce and what we saw was a massive shift to ecommerce Ness of shift to the merchants and the pavement plays. Who were in the right position at the right time to capitalize on it so i think they saw me spike in volume. This'll great traction. But this year. I think what we've seen is is more of a liberal divide in. That's a lot of other players out. There have adapted their solution to take advantage of not only the rise in traditional e calms but also the point to sail payments bringing them online bringing other plays into the realm and it was a it was showed that actually look done in the industry within a year and there was really a huge transportation in how payments businesses bow their product.

So the question at the other side. Yeah we've talked around do genres games. I think i think you can have a primary genre that you want the game to fall into the category that you want the game to fall into brought thing that you shouldn't be limited by the genre many things Don't think for an similize. Rpg mechanics is radia evolving. What you can be no. I agree with you on that as one ninety. Ma you got ninety nine. This is one of the reasons. Why i want a proper rpg game videogames get dramas.

That's how it goes some of the recipes that come within the tally games. Make no sense whatsoever. Some of them can get others.

"Okay kwong here's how this is gonna work all right. Sebastian gets roughly ten minutes facts to prove that his critter of choice. Spiders are the coolest critters. Okay got it now. These are general spider facts. So sebastian gets to call on any spider. He wants which gives him a lot to choose from. There are like roughly forty five thousand species of spiders and to give you a sense of context. Think about an animal that we see all the time or type of animal mammals right there are only about six thousand or so species of mammals that covers literally everything from shrews to wales to rhinos compared to the forty five thousand as of spiders nest so many spy seen mammals. Like it's just where it's at. Now where's that okay. So here's the thing it's not just. How many of them there. It's also where they live. Spiders are out here. Along in here is pretty much everywhere. See this is one of my favorite things about Planet earth is basically. Wherever i go. I can find a spider because they are spiders living everywhere from the inter titles on right at the ocean's edge to forests to dryest desert's where they build sand tunnels under the sand up on mountains not as regular mountains all the way up to the slopes of mount everest and everything in between a hold on he just said there are spiders that live on mount everest. Oh yeah clung. There's a famous one up. There called the himalayan jumping spider. They live up to twenty two thousand feet or sixty seven hundred meters above sea level. They are the spider the animal that is arguably the highest permanent resident on earth. They're living in the penthouse on our planet incredible. I wouldn't have thought i wouldn't have thought spider. I would've thought something else. Yeah i know me neither. But i love this because even its species name omni superstars is kind of perfect for talking smack. The omni superstar means stands above everything because it is literally above us at all points of the day of the night of the year. Watching down a bunks. All be lower animals. Identify lower animal. You know about that spider. Maybe your soul mate. All right what else do you got supplier okay. So the one that sent me over the spider edge wong. Did you know that there are multiple types of spiders who live at least part-time underwater. Like i'm talking seawater freshwater. They're out there. I mean you must find that amazing because you can barely swim. Wow wow wow. Wow emily everyone else was getting to talk. Smack didn't turn honestly fair but her full fare but herve okay. Okay so anyways. There's this spider that lives underwater called the diving bell spider and they basically make a sifi like underwater dome of air. That's their air pocket. Go there when they need to breathe and the rest of the time they just go out and they bring a little like bubble of air around their lungs which on a spider on the bottom of the abdomen. Bring a bubble of air around with that and they're just walking around underwater. They are catching food under their catching fish catching small insects and their entire life every part of their lifespan from birth to reproduction to death. Okay even i. A person who doesn't think about spiders will admit this incredibly cool that spiders are really living all over. The place got range qualm. They got rained. I don't mean like as a group of species. Some spiders legit have ranged. in fact many spiders can fly. I mean technically it's called ballooning but they're flying get out what they'll do is they. Basically will just release silk into the wind and it goes up and basically turns into like a kite. But when you're a light enough to be a spider something that's like a kite is basically like an air balloon out of here and okay. Here's the thing though. It's not just them catching the wind. There's evidence that spiders can sense earth's electric fields and take advantage of that to shoot up into the sky

"We have information about our products that we've got a whole resources section so the white paper that dealer impact study is there as well as a lot of other white papers that we've done in best practices we also really try to aggregate case studies for a lot of the stores that we work with. And you know we always say. We don't think people want to hear from us. They want to hear from each other. So we try our best to surface the voices of other dealers so they can kind of see how they embraced it. What they did you know through the process of on boarding with with platform and so on. So there's really great information In addition to the product if people are just looking to learn like what does it take to actually implement something like this. What are some of the best practices And then finally you know. I we keep it real. Roads were very approachable. So if somebody really does have questions there they can email me. My email address is just michelle at register dot com. They're more than happy to do that as well. They have questions fantastic. Well thanks for shelter. This has been a terrific. Did the lots of insights what we've come favorite fitbit tonight now highly Enough of miss anything. He but just came to summarize the points of tonight and It's it's been alive enough The transit you already saying in the us with still a lot of loved to dealerships knitting big close because covid with very fortunate Rodney outweigh in the situation. Way all sights now are open to try. It's interesting background. At amazing you talked about the real estate the the the dieting and automotive industry being simla is ultimately connecting people. Something that i really need to. Which is a fundamental life whether somebody to leave someone to be with all summer had some had around so you gotta similarities with people connecting. I think that was one thing that released early in the in the conversation but one thing that are ugly took away was the sales process and the digitization of that prices and having the customer pace feet in that so that there is a disconnect between what is the physical experience and the online experience and is that multiple in different variations old. So it talked about him embracing in call omni channel way. The showroom and the online is one but not not transactions. If you like other sign potentially his is gonna be there's gonna be different connections. Why but making sure that you people in your charen Respect that and the customer is actually the full everything that you do so modernizing that customer experience is. What you're saying is a kate change and one of the benefits that you can actually do multiple customers at one time. 'cause the eld stall is linear so multiple customers and you actually put the customer to work and it's a bit like i think back to the they all dies plan Service stations used to serve you for fuel where conditions to put fuel in your car and pay in the store down. We didn't boy chocolates etcetera sexy. Spent more money through that business To do that she feeling comfortable zone. Sieves is because done touch cow but what does it actually brings back the fun stuff in south process because all the manual stuff can be done law and can digitize that gets the fishing back because the fun stuff becomes the ending over the top. The the final negotiations of the charon the and the draw the test drive of the cast really put more energy into the good things about the price they send manual stuff is actually done a flawed in at their own pace and then we looked at Changed is the the world actually wants to do the stuff remotely and you can actually do more with less so you can get more sows. Get more information out. You can build more trust with liz paypal and really in a shorter time director with those customers. So they officiency And heading a major success is a using the system with all been guilty of buying a gym membership or a Some sort of software package where we can do all that stuff.

"Of the things that i saw personally and talking to a lot of our partners in the beginning of the pandemic was scaled back so much that the leadership team was actually selling cars and so they learned firsthand what it took and what it meant and what kind of process changes they needed to put in place so as they brought back people they were thinking about who would be best suited to follow this process. And i think that it was a very different thought process for dealerships than who is my best selling salesperson. There's a lot of people with with pretty significant. Portfolios of clients just didn't follow the rules in the process. They just sold a lot of cars themselves and when push came to shove they were looking at okay. We want to create a repeatable process. So maybe we should look for the people that are process driven a little bit about the technology. Technology savviness is important but really process driven. Was the key that we saw sort of rise to the top as it relates to what they needed and frankly customer service driven as well. Are they here to support the customer. They have that mentality. are they technologically. Savvy are they process-oriented. Those characteristics rose above the ability to be a strong negotiator. Sound to say that's not important. But i think that's where we saw the tilt happened because the customers researching as little information now. They've educated to be online if you're not accustomed is not focusing on that. Customer experience They've got the information right. So if you feel that the all wise of a strong the guy shed it because you've got information that the customer does not have a stronger position is now. that's not the case. And then you've got to drill back into what is the actual problem for the customer. You're solving with your products and service that you selling with us. I that makes the take seven as because if you reject the fact that not understand the fact that they've actually gone to undertake jeremy and you're not speaking the same language as them Ray the take the using than the trust is a big i would say. Don't don't confuse the need for technology with age. We have some of our best sales. People are the tenured salespeople once they get it they love the technology so i. I know that we tend to do that in our brains like. Oh we need the millennials or whatever generation or the generation is they're going to be more technologically savvy but it is less about bad in. It's more about mindset in adaptation in your study units herself console in in this country and a lot of the industry. Benchmarks is ten units Monks we didn't think of how long it takes to silica and then get a paid. Then do the handover deliver experience. Ten ten units provides a reasonable income for ice house. Consult opposite wall is good but then as usually tipping way. If it's too many than the customer service big drops alive because the closeness The intimacies not Mukasa but in your patriots have doubted that. With the technology the cells poed units also person has significantly increased. Now i chain is correct. That's correct. I think what's what's interesting is. We've assumed for actually turns out over thirty five years. At least i. I have not yet. I need to ask actually my friends at nada. If that's when they started tracking that or when that became the benchmark but for thirty five years the average units for salesperson has been his ten point one to be exact and so it's been consistent until now and i think really the driver is the technology is allowing them to do that more efficiently. But to your point about you know is there. Is there a tipping point where the relationship turns i think that removed that also because now that they can handle so much of digitally. The relationship is really. What's what's left to to shine right so they can't have that engagement and candle that relationship because they're pushing so much of the transactional elements into a digital format. But yeah. i think one of the big i've had is. It's almost like the way that we've planned as an industry is stopped us from being more productive because that ten units isn't every staffing model with every dealership that i've talked to write. This is how we plan if each person on average could sell ten. I need this many salespeople and so that in that limits how much each salesperson can sell see so it's sort of like a self fulfilling prophecy one of the big things that we've learned during this timeframe is to reset the bar and say my expectation for each of my sales people is more and then you're staffing model is quite different so make sure you've you collect a huge amount of data from your platform. Heavy seen any trains of a covid lockdown that you picked up from that data. Yeah i think that couple For sure so. The percentage of consumers that are Engaging in online transactions from our own data when we looked at this sort of pre hoven when you looked at how many what percentage of the transactions at any given dealership were happening online it was more like fifteen percent and as we got to the peak of a lot of

"We're so used to self service and doing a lot of the stuff ourselves. So i think there's a lot to be said in. How do you work with multiple customers at one time in. That's what's driving the efficiency though the self service bit mike sold makes the big difference because the customers filling out. They personal day tile. They getting the driver's license. They doing all the work that someone in the dealership nola have to manually enter. And that's puppet that linear process are like after a customer guys often in between doing zoom meetings etcetera feels out the forums that south Could have three or four customers on the guy at that time and the customers would not be feeling that they getting bit Getting lists service in the post next to them which would be getting a shower. That's right and i think they appreciate it more because it's on their time right one of the data points that we've been watching for a while this is not related necessarily to the pandemic in what's happening now but we've always seen that thirty percent of the dealmaking activity is happening when the stores are closed. If you think about that just by itself you know. They can't physically walk into your sherman. But they're doing that behavior at eleven o'clock at night in their vaginas. So it's it's on your and if you think about your your own shopping experience than anything else you buy. A guy was last night shopping for holiday presents for my children at about eleven o'clock at night. So that's when. I had time to do that right so i think people really appreciate it being on their time and a lot of that stuff is much more transactional in nature and let the fun. Stuff is really driving the car and taking delivery and building relationships. It's not okay. Fill out your credit applic- that's not fun. So let's get that out of the way ahead of time so that we can leave room for that relationship to shine. Even in the hand of prices getting product information understanding simple things how to work your radio in that that can be done online. You can send videos the customer experience that incident having this housman that they're trying to expand into the custom it'd be number welcomed with so much information that he can't remember anyway right the nasa lawn anyway to learn it. Yeah i definitely get. That was true during my last purchase. I was not listening to half of what they were telling me about my car. I just wanted to get home and experience it but you know two or three days later. You're like shoot. How does the radio worker phone. So i yeah. Hundred percent agree. See john show in terms of the main problems that you solve or that rise salsa what would you say the real problems assaults for the both of data and the customer. Yeah in a great question. I think it really comes down to three main areas. One would be engagement with the customer. Like i said you know thirty percents. That activity is happening after hours. And so you know so. Much of our industry is dependent on auto responders. And just you know trying to make the appointments maybe not being as transparent as we should be about the price. So we're really what's happening is that we really aren't always answering the question that the customer actually has when they submit a lead into our dealership to begin with so regardless of the source wherever that customer came from so i definitely think with digital retailing. What you are able to do is really respond to all the questions. Because you're you're basically putting the levers in the hands of the customer so they wanna know pricing. They can go look at the price they can pull the levers See what the payment is. And what works for them if they want a trade valuation. They can do that. So there's so much capability for them to self service and answer the questions that i think whereas maybe consumers would stop the engagement or be shy to submit a lead in in get contacted by the dealership. They now have this all available for them. You can get

" backwards always and customers are both sides of that equation right? So whether it's the consumer or in our space the the retailer deeply understanding where they come from is, I always say, the fastest way to successful positioning of of your company, and successful business in general. Because if you don't understand them, like you said, it's the fastest way out of business. I like that, hadn't heard that before. Y ou have to be able to walk in their shoes. if you don't know what their pain point sare that solving, you if are you are not solving problems, their become you ir relevant. Irre;avent of is extremely good. That is such a powerful word of the comes through and john. How many podcasts. We hear that would resonate. Trust comes through you'll be relevant and complexity is is bad. Our industries is full of complexity. Which i think is why a lot of the newer technologies aiming to solve. I have i have another. I have another saying that Which is that. You can't really modernize the customer experience until you modernize the selling experience. I think that's a big piece of that. Omni channel park mark that we were talking about to just to start off michelle. Can you tell us a bit about rights to the top of services you offer just to get background of. We come from and your approach to the market. Yeah absolutely so so. Roadster is What we like to call it. A digital sales platform that sits in the digital retailing category. That has been the big buzzword of the last many years especially this year but but we the reason we call it a platform is because we think beyond what i think most people deem as digital retailing. Which is the ability to sell. Cars online into our platform goes deep into the dealership sales process in figuring out how to digitize a lot of what they do inside the store for a salesperson perspective that it's really creating a seamless and consistent experience for the consumer from the time they start online to the time they might finish that transaction in the showroom so our tools and functionality are all built with the consumer in mind that also the salesperson in mind and how they interact through technology with the customer to navigate them through the process. Sober show deals. Do you also do the transactional law we do. So that's that's that's why. I think people talk to you. Know digital retailing is more like ecommerce. So the end to end transaction to us. That's like table stakes. Like you have to be able to do that and do that. Well and then the next layer is okay. Well how do you connect with the showroom experience and give the team in store tools to navigate that process because today even today with covid. There's only a certain percentage of consumers will buy the car sight unseen one hundred percent online. The rest of the emmer going to have an omni channel experience where they come into the showroom to take over from wherever they started and so our goal and our mission is to be able to enable dealers to use our our software with every customer. You omni channel of came to get the the real definition of omni channel for ella's There can you wind owner. The channel in has a look so from from my perspective. Omni channel is connecting the online experience with the in store experience in having it. Be a seamless in in continuous process. So i like to say it's how you avoid the groundhogs day of buying a car. Where i always. I always talk about it. Like the Marketing one one right. You never want to promote something that you can't deliver on so if you put out there this whole concept of you can buy a car online for me. And they start the process new bunch staff and then you come into the showroom. And there's the salespeople act like. You never did any of that in ask you to do all of that stuff again. That's really really frustrating. All right that's that's worse than not giving them the opportunity star online because now you've wasted their time figures. See a lot of companies doing that way. You have to verify yourself like some government departments and that you verify your identity and then when you actually start to speak to so you start from the beginning again so let's actually quadros writing right now that you mention it. That's a good example calling the phone company. That's my that's my go-to example. You've ever had to call an hour now. If it's it's this way out where you are but if you ever call the phone company you get daisy chained in the different departments and every time you get transferred to somebody else and you explain your whole situation in what happened and why you're frustrated you have to then go and start again in explain all of that again and that's a really really frustrating experience in unfortunately it happens quite a bit in our industry where people do as much as they can online and then they get into the showroom in the dealership just has no idea that they did those things so connecting. That together is what i think. Omni channel really is about another good example. Is you'll laugh. Chat of comes on and has some discussions with the dealer. Go away

"Especially with the surgeon online orders and worries over delivery and things like that. So whereas Omni Channel used to be Oh, you know we have our store and we also have our website and we're bringing the two together. Now it's really how can we use our store base to fulfill orders from online and yes, customers might come in, but not in the numbers that they used to. Yeah, I listen. I got to say to you I have done a lot of shopping around on the packages us. I've warned our team today that I've gotta listen for the door when packages airdrop because we've some porch pirates in the neighborhood, so I've got to be careful and get them. But what's interesting to me? I know your neighborhood. It's a good neighborhood. It's just they know the packages that are delivered a really good to, um, but what's interesting is when I order I think about What's the exchange policy? How easy it How much is going to cost for shipping back and forth because I love shopping online, but often ordering multiple sizes and doing things like that. But I look at the store policies and that really determines where I shop a lot now. No, that's that's a very good point. And I think consumers are going to become more and more wary and informed about those types of things, and also the key crunch point is The delivery times. And, you know, I think predictions are now that pretty much December 11th is going to be the cut off. I keep hearing different opinions. On the one hand, A lot of people say, Oh, consumers are much more forgiving. They recognized the crunch on retailers on so if packages don't arrive on time, they're much more forgiving, and I keep thinking myself. They're forgiving until December 24th when they're waiting for that one kiss for their last one That's not arrived. And then, um, so I think it's going to be a lot of pressure on retailers this year, particularly the logistics systems. And again, the benefit is how quickly they can leverage their store basis to fulfill those orders and drive the consumer to the store to pick up the product because again that gives the retailer bigger margin. Um, you know, the key to the question of this holiday is going to be yes, growth of online. But one of the march is gonna look like yes, wondered gym. You know, we're seeing boxes pile up outside of much everybody's door up and down the street here, talk to us about luxury. I mean, if I'm going to spend a lot of money on a luxury watch Is that also work in an detail, e commerce type of environment or I want to order you finding consumers want to go to the store. Look at it, Hold it, feeling all that kind of stuff. Surprisingly, the luxury players are saying that more and more consumers are shopping online for those very high priced items. It's also forced those luxury players offer those items online, because luxury very much to your point was kind of snobbish about a lot of things but very much snobbish about the online experience. They thought the consumer wanted that personal. Touch. Personal service had to be in the store cetera now because consumers haven't been, you know stores were closed. They didn't have access to this consumers, so they were setting up a lot of online shopping. A lot of videoconferencing type shopping on Do you know the retailers? I've spoken to have said they've sold Jewelry worth hundreds of thousands of dollars by videoconference and just then drove it up to the woman's house and dropped it off. So this is what I think. I think this is something that's really dramatically different. We caught up with the CEO of watches of Switzerland, and they talked about how you know the whole idea of online shopping shifted to we were, you know, Thank you Zoom and all these other platforms that we were setting up. You know, sales personnel with customers online and doing, you know, like we would be at a counter right? Like the shifting, you know that we moved to that, you know, changing kind of how we shop and that that is something that will probably stay with us. On. I think about that How important it could be for especially luxury goods very much so And as I said, I don't think it makes slipped back a little bit when hopefully the vaccines take effect, and people are protected against the virus and so forth. But this behavior is a fundamental shift in the way everybody's going to shop, and I think it's the combination of convenience. If you can get that personal service, even via zoom or whatever. Then you might not travel to a store and, you know, in a sense, traveling to a store. Versus getting the one on one zoom experience. You might get better attention, actually, via zoom by one. So what are some of the items that are hot this year? And what are some of the items that maybe are not? I think you know you're going to see the normal electronic seems to be taking off a lot of TV discounts today, um, apparel, the sweaters that you know the things like that jewelry may do well because again, it's one of the few things that you women particularly will be able to show off when their on their conference calls on the computer at home. Um guys like to show off like that new watches? Well, I'm just getting that out there. That's true. That's true. Very much, um And so you know very much cops because none of us were bottoms when we're on the computers, All right. Full disclosure. I have a bottom on right there. Um, but I want to go. You are seeing some growth and shoes and things like that. What The consumers at all price points are beginning to under beginning to do is They want to treat themselves. They're not eating out in restaurants. They're not going on vacation. So there's been this spending boom because, like I have this liquidity as you mentioned earlier in the program I want to do something with it. I need a treat. And so they're spending money on things that they might not wear.
