"Yeah. I've hit my buns several times. Now that i'm thinking about it. Several times on the doorway is not before head but is the doorway. And honestly i wouldn't say as painful but i understand the pain but it's like a science doing that okay. There are honestly so many calculations that you have to do to determine whether or not you can actually fit through the doorway and then by the time you get close as like. Oh my gosh. What do i do like from faraway. It looks like you can fit through the door without hitting your forehead but as you get closer it looks like the doorway is like getting lower and lower if that makes sense it somehow shrinking getting lower and lower seat. It wants you to hit your forehead. You know a wants you to hit your forehead but it may look like you can fit through it even though it is getting shorter and shorter closer. You're getting to it but it is getting shorter and shorter. And then by the time you get there like oh my gosh what do i do like. I wanna try to just walk normally and hopefully not hit my forehead. But i also don't want to embarrass myself in front of all of these people and actually hit my forehead but then to duck is kind of awkward because you just awkwardly tall. You think that everybody's looking at you and it's like oh my gosh. She's so tall that she has to duck through the doorway. But it's like. I only hit my forehead but then by the time we get there you just awkwardly hit your head to the doorway. And that's just terrible and things like that really. Make me wish that. I paid attention in calculus and geometry like i would be calculating angles signed cosigns all of that so from far back i would be able to know whether or not i'll be able to fit that doorway. Yeah so if you're tall just become a mathematician and you'll know you'll understand but yeah that's honestly that's genuinely talk or problem i'm rambling on okay. We're gonna we're gonna make this. The last one last one is always looking under addressed because if you wear heels you'll look like a giant okay. If you have listened to my previous episodes you guys know that. This is something that i really struggled with. When i was younger whenever i used to dress up because i play an instrument Yeah not that long. But i still play an instrument to this day but i started playing. When i was in high school i would always wear flats to the concerts because yeah i was awkwardly tall compared to my peers and wearing flats. You have to be careful. Because you can't oh eek hit where everything that you wanna wear when you're wearing flats because there's just gonna look so weird so if you're already limiting yourself to what you can wear new wearing flats thin. That's honestly dressing down at this point because you don't want the outfit to look nasty. 'cause you're wearing. Oh that dress but then the flats just don't make it look right then is like okay. I can wear something that works with the flats but then at this point and not really dressing up like that and then you feel under dressed and a really a hated it. I really really hated it. And it wasn't until recently that i became confident enough to wear heels and public. I actually did an episode on that on me by my first pair of heels and being judged for it so if you wanna hear that story time i definitely suggest that you should check it out after this one but yeah heels can definitely bring out some insecurities in us tall women and this is. This is definitely something i can say. That tall girls go through. But i don't know if it should be called a problem. I don't think it should be called a problem. Because if if you're tall if you're tall woman or tall man even if you're tall in general and you want to wear heels go ahead and wear those heels because i guarantee you everybody will be turning heads and looking at you in awe not even discussed in awe so definitely wear those. He'll sell honestly. I'm gonna call this one out and say a short person proudly did come up with this because yes it does bring out insecurities and stuff like that but you should definitely wear heels. If you're tall is made for is the whole point of wearing heels just so you could be taller. Go ahead and be taller. So i'm gonna end it here. Actually i might make this into serious because going through the or problems. There's just so many of them. And i wasn't aware that there were so many them. This is added up over the years. And how many just now finding these even though it's adding up over the years but is definitely a lot to go through. I mean thousands upon thousands upon thousands. So i'm definitely going to make this series. I'm gonna do this again and we're going to talk about more about taller problems so definitely stay tuned for that and yeah himmy up on my socials at a tall girls podcast on instagram. Pinter's antic talk. They will be linked below. So make sure you click on that link and follow me me up.

"If you're into it. I don't know it doesn't work for everybody. I guess not. Everyone will give a chance but of the brands. I know that have used. Sms you end up with a smaller list. That is highly engaged. So i still like sms. So if you're already doing it see if you can grow those lists again. I think it's with its pop-up offers. Probably what's going to drive most of your your sms and email but figuring out the right pop up with the right offer to the right person at the right time. That's the thing you want to experiment with But all right so facebook. we're we're disillusioned with it. There are other channels out there. And if you're going to start experimenting with new channels you know. Maybe take fifteen percent of that facebook ad budget and Shift that to let's experiment with some other channels. Obviously you wanna do that right now. Not i'll figure this out in november. I again the the main thing we ask of you doing. A sub optimal thing in september is way better than trying to do anything in november. Yes absolutely So there was a great post. Our facebook group in which someone asked any marketing experts drive meaningful revenue with platforms outside of google and facebook. Oh i'd love to know the answer my friend but there are a whole bunch of comments where people said. Yeah and here's what's working. Everyone's saying snapchat. Everyone's saying tic tac seven seven to eight x. Roy is on tic tac ads. Which in the grand perfect world of. When facebook ads were banging is would be a terrible facebook ad row as but in our brand new world of no one knows what works anymore maybe seven eight x is really good. No seventy x is good for anything any channel. Okay yeah i don't know no seven x take it. I put in a dollar out seven. I'm in. I mean suppose it depends on what your margins are what yourself but yeah that will pro that. That dog will hunt for most folks. Pinter's putt well. I'm surprised to see snapchat. Get mentioned in here because obviously like we chase the shiny toy and tick tock is the new hotness doctors cool now snapchat is not cool anymore but i i so many people have told me. Hey.

"So now I'm GONNA use that as my plus one that you said that ever because you're a fucking liar but number two. It's just not realistic man it's not realistic. We're not computers Shit's going to happen. I don't know about her thing, but I'm seeing it with like all kinds of stars you know like just different in even We've seen it a couple of times like youtubers like going to events in somebody's like well, that person you know they didn't say hi to me or they didn't sign my you know my shirt or whatever. You're just like well seriously where were they going? Like, do you know because that person probably won't remember the one experience they had with their one millionth fan but you're going to remember the one experience you had with the one person that you wanted to shirt signed from. But guess what those are not actually equal experiences there, and what I mean is yours is does in a way matter more than theirs but only when it comes to what their memories can hold their memories going to hold probably a a real interaction far higher than them saying, you know I, gotTa go I'm busy I've got a fucking meaning to can't sign your shirt i. don't know crazy stuff man it's crazy stuff. It's weird that were. It's it's weird. Even know that people are holding that kind of stuff accountable I know a lot of people who have separated from facebook twitter everything. They're literally going dark in fact. I. Have One friend is just dark like I don't think they're on any social media. Maybe they're on facebook but that might just be a family thing for like getting get togethers together but they're just gone they're like, no not where that I'm completely out can't deal with any and they're not, and by the way they're not a person that any of these complaints would be lodged against they just can't. It just makes no sense to them. They're just like you know people are people and. Like why are we wiry burning these people over the coals for? Everything verses the things that really should matter because things do matter. You know like I said I'm not debasing. The real complaints? I'm talking more along the lines of the add on complaints sometimes doesn't it feel to you guys like sometimes somebody just wants to cause an issue Like between like like that where they just want to sort of get their word into and be like, yeah, this happened to me to. Not, really that's not. It's not really the same thing like what you're complaining about. Not, really of the level that the other people complaining about not even in the same stratosphere actually, but you still get. I just hope that all of you guys out there listening on social media and that kind of stuff spread the word of me more I. Want more people to be mad at my podcast and I'm just joking if you get a chance spread the word about it also follow me at German pinter also check out the shirts T. spring a c g just type in like go to Google type in. T spring plus a CG and I should show up. But take care of yourself. It's hard last couple of weeks. Hopefully, we all get through you guys should see us pop up here this Friday with podcast. You also see a review coming out next week on a couple of next week probably two games we'll have to see Got A lot of stuff to cover probably going to do more of the post patch notes of really enjoyed doing that with horizon zero done you gotta really catch it right after because otherwise, it's like, why is this really a thing but I think with horizon because people were having issues with technically it made more sense to do that video but I'm going to try to. Keep those going because a did fairly well people and I don't mean numbers wise I mean people's response to it as in like commenting and saying Oh you know it's good to know this or here's my experience I think that matters more than views actually is sort of the re-. The grass roots comment in re commenting that people get on it that usually shows that there's I don't WANNA say engagement but there's well. Yeah engagement. Anyway yeah that's it for me. That's it for me. So if you've got this far say how much I absolutely appreciate it. Maybe check out the patron a C G on patron would love to come in join the discord.

So how did you build your team? So I I divided the business really into three parts is there's marketing. Which is getting leads, there's acquisitions or sales conversion, which is getting the deals under contract, and then there is dispositions which means selling the property or wholesaling property I. Really Do not like doing dispositions I I liked it, but it was too time consuming. I didn't want to deal with buyers so I. A disposition manager, who works for me so I was looking for someone I think advertised on wise higher which I think is a great great great product and found someone who's great can work. He's amazing, so not after the deal is locked up. He really deals with finding the buyers. We're GONNA wholesale it or or funding retail buyers, if we if we were the leads management component, I also realized that it was something where Coles had to be taken liable time, and I'm running out looking at properties or managing a project, so my heart lease manager.

"And hundreds of properties that were. Scheduled to go on auction on Tuesday, and by the time Monday came around a vast majority of them would be cancelled already. So you already doing work beforehand on on properties? They weren't gonNA end up an auction. Then you do a lot of work on properties that were still scheduled to be auctioned, but then the bank has an upset price minimum price they will take. You can't find it out in advance, so you'd spend time on properties were the bank was in much more than you could ever bid? And then even if the banks upset price was lower than. THAN! You wanted to bid, and you bid on it. You can get out get so I was spending forty percent of my week doing work on things where I didn't know if I could buy anything very often. I would, but nothing so I switched from auctions to going direct to seller so now market direct to sell it, so auctions are interesting. I think everybody in an area that's looking to buy real estate seat. What how it works and what goes on there, but it's it's a very hard way to to buy properties with any kind of certainty. Thank you very much. Michael deals without markets in what marketing tools. Generate the highest settle I. Do a lot of marketing director seller so I buy lists of prospects people that. Are Likely to sell either abroad because they they're older, and they own the property for long time or more niche list, so it's a big big property owners or Absentee? Landlords or tax lists, and then I i. Try and market to them in multiple ways so I have colours coal them. I skipped trades list to get their phone number to call them or text them rbm them which means dropping voicemail into their into their Sell voicemail and I'll build him also all those tools in with the highest. Probably, the highest arnold is running was voicemail because it's extremely cheap, but it's gets the most the prospect. It gets more angry prospects than anything else than you have to sort through those, so there's pros and cons of all the marketing, but whenever I get a list. I believe in marketing to it in every way that I can. Thank you very much. So what are the benefits? All Star game direct market too much of the centers, so the main benefit is combined property at a at a deep discount. You're dealing with the seller directly you dealing with the decision maker. Your job is to first qualify that prospect and see if it's a lead of someone who wants the south. They do want to sell them. The job is to meet with them. I need them. Some people do it virtually. And then figure out what I can pay and then find out. They have a problem that I can solve so if they are. They need to close quickly. I may be the only solution if there sometimes there. They just don't WanNa list the property for whatever reason. They had a bad experience with a realtor. The properties in terrible condition there barest by the can be all kinds of reasons why there's something illegal in the property that WanNa deal with with the retail. So, my job is really just a solve a sellers..

"Anything was more fraud being perpetrated on reverse mortgages on the water on regular mortgages during those years. Okay, thank you, Michael based in Enor- system markets especially New York. What is different from other markets now? That's a huge question I can talk to on that. Let me tell you. Northeast is not different, but New York state is dramatically different than the other forty nine states. The reason why I invest in is because where I live, and that's what I learned how to do, but there are so many differences both some good, some bad investing in New, York so the most obvious differences in what makes it difficult is that in New York is the only state where there is a seller's attorney prepares the contract so when I go buy property I'm in the other forty nine states, and I go to seller and he wants to sell property. We agree on the price I can just flip a contract across the kitchen table. Table and give him the positive for fifty dollars hillside. It also will be in contract in New York, after the seller says yes, almost everything changes his then go a higher attorney to prepare the contract who then sends it to my attorney and there's a whole negotiation process process takes much longer and processes much more difficult. That's one of the negatives one of the positives in New York is that during much less competition much less than people shocked when when they hear it, but in New York state very.

Africa's I started writing reverse mortgages for four people. The practice changed recently over the last year has very different, but the way reverse mortgage works. Is that a bank lends money to somebody over certain age, and they lend them in a variety of ways. Sometimes, it's a lump sum. Sometimes it's a line of credit, and then.

"So I sort of. I know where I start. I know where I wanna end up and everything else in the interim I sort of I want. The characteristic guide me So you know. Generally at the end of the day I finish when I'm finished Often either exhaustion or just to get some sleep. And then I'll I'll pick up the next day but you know in between all of that all often. Just you know. Brainstorming idea will come to be and even if. I'm lying in bed. I'll text it to myself so that I have a record of it and I keep sort of a running document of all. The ideas talk twisted character developments. That just occurred to me when I'm not actually writing the book. So even if I say I don't have an actual outline By the end of hideaway for example like a twenty five page single spaced document all just sort of ideas and thoughts and brainstorms. That came into my head during the writing when I wasn't actually at the court and so Y three offended the January before you started running them. I was very much. So you know I sort of grew up There's a lot of kids. Did you know in the Hardy Boys Encyclopedia Brown kid investigators? So I I love those Then it's like a little old right really had a love for sort of epic fantasy. I grew up as a big fan of Terry Brooks and Brian. Shock and Pierce Anthony on and then I moved onto Stephen King. I think everybody does but then I think it was probably in my teen years. I started to love crime fiction. I started love shoot thrillers and more specifically the ones that had real characters as much as I sort of love twisty turny plots to me. It's always the character that you want to follow so it was important to me to write mysteries and thrillers that had characters that were more interesting and not as one dimensional as they could be so with all your busy schedule. Do you still find time to read for pleasure? I do not as much as I would like to say before kids. I would read two books a week and now it's you know. I have twenty to thirty minutes the end of the night before I pass out so you know it. He'll plus I read a lot for work so non not as much as I would like my. I tend to buy books faster than I can. I can read them so my my shelves at home are very overstuffed. So what inspired you to write your first book? I mean did you always listen growing up? I always wanted to be a writer. I don't know if I always wanted to be a writer. I think when I was a I it came from being a reader. I read all these stories as a kid and then I would occasionally sort of like ten these little short stories. That will never very good. And they're always sort of You know carbon copies or replicas of what I was reading oppose really Stephen King is probably right about you. Know terrible stories about demonic clowns and things like that and it really. I think it was in college when I thought to myself like I kind of want to give this a shot and I wrote a terrible coming of age was in college and I think every writer has a terrible coming of age novel stuck in a drawer somewhere And even though the book itself probably wasn't very good at told me I can do this. I can start from nothing and end up with an eighty thousand word manuscript and then it was just a matter of sort of honing my craft so I think I always loved reading and I loved writing. It was just a question of what I was going to do with that and I think thankfully. I've found my found my role. Let's say for you to Continue under the series. Yes so the I actually just finished. I turned in the final Edits for the next Rachel Marron novel to my editor a couple of weeks ago And that'll be out an early twenty twenty one and it's called a stranger at the door so Hopefully people read the book and like get It's actually I think it's already up for preorder But they'll have the next book in the series available And not too long time. Yeah you'd be getting some amazing. A blurbs from David Balducci in my favorites. That's a pretty cool. Yeah I yeah I I. It's unbelievable these authors. That grew up loving the fact that they're now willing to you. Know essentially put their name to my book and endorse it. It's it's stunning and before I let you go Advice for aspiring writers. At listening I would say read. Read everything you can You know I think Stephen King said if you if you don't have the time to read you don't have the tools to write You know I know a lot of authors who wanted to be writers and I say Oh what have you read recently. And they either don't read recently or they've only read the can and You know they want to write up contemporary thriller the last book that read was to kill a mockingbird and I think to raise to write something contemporary you need to read contemporary. Needs READING THERE SEAN. Where that you want to publish in Lead the greats in the zone read books that are fantastic and also read books. That aren't very good. I think to me reading books that I didn't care for all that much showed me okay. I can do this this book like I can do. Better than this You know you don't WanNa look down on these people at the same time. I think it gives a bit of an inspiration to say. Listen this person successful. They wrote a book that I think I can do better. Then and then go go prove that you can But at the same time. Read Everything. You can work on your writing.

"pinter" Discussed on Meet the Thriller Author: Interviews with Writers of Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense Books

"Entre pleasure thank me. Can you tell the we just a little bit about yourself please? Yes so I am the internationally. Bestselling author of seven novels for adults and children My most recent book is hideaway which just came out on March first from Thomas and Mercer. I'm also the founder and publisher of Polish books and Independent Publishing Company that I founded in twenty thirteen and our new imprint agora which is dedicated towards underrepresented voices and stories in crime fiction. So how would you describe your your books as someone who hasn't read any of your appearance novels? Oh I would say definitely mystery thriller if you like Harlan Cobaine or lead child or Laura Lippman. I'd say it's definitely in the up that alley So mystery suspense thriller and so highly. Away is the first book in year. The Rachel Marron series and I got an advanced copy. So thank you for. That really enjoyed it Such an interesting character vigilant a hero in a single mom. What made you decide to feature single mother as the protagonist of this book so I started writing the book Fairly shortly after my first daughter was for two and a half years ago and I'd been wanting to start a series by quite hit on the right idea or the right character yet and There was something about my daughter's bond with my wife or mother that just it really resonated with me then notion of how much protector she was. how much it changed her life and I thought it'd be really interesting to take a three character because thriller characters are mystery characteristics. They tend to be Kinda Loners. They tend to be You Know Lone Wolves They they want to go out and drink four. Am or get into fights at the bar. That's not a problem you know. Nobody else is worried about them. But take a character who could be essentially a crimefighter but have two small children dependent on her I thought that'd be really interesting. You know she's a single mother Your there's a terrible traumatic event that happens at the beginning of the book that causes her become a single mother And how so? I thought it'd be great to look into how. How does she balance having skills and talent and she gives me a fighter criminal but having two children? That's just to come home and take care of an cook for and make sure they get the school bus on time and I thought that was set up an inherent conflict within the character. That'd be really interesting to explore throughout the book as it. Were there any real people or fictional characters that aspired the creation of Rachel Marron? I sort of looked at her as a bit of a combination of Sherlock Holmes and Sarah Connor Terminator Two. I thought she I wanted to sort of be sort of you. Know a brilliant criminal. Investigator like homes With Sarah Connor is sort of a fighter. Somebody really honed herself to a knife's edge point but at the same time both Sherlock Sircana are very much broken. People in a Lotta ways and so is Sara sorcery. So's Rachel. She underwent something terrible. That changed her. Life enforcer to Look at the world and a completely different way. And she's struggling to adapt to it. She's struggling to protect her children and protect ourselves In a Lotta ways. She has sort of a avoided dealing with her own torn emotions. I thought that that was really the inspiration. Somebody WHO'S SMART? Who's a fighter who is capable but at the same time very much a broken a lot of ways is this? The first time that you've written a female protagonist and I wonder what was the challenges that as a male writer of definitely female. I have another female characters before. But this is the first Briton. Female as my my main character book You know to me. It was really important to create a female character. Who you know. Obviously she's strong and she's smart You know she's a little. Bit of heightened knows ways but at the same time. She's a single mother so wanted that to be very realistic and relatable so you know I'm a parent myself so I can understand some of the emotions there. I talked to single mothers. Understand the emotions that they went through both DB challenges and the The high points of being a single parent. You know the struggle to both you know provide for them but also find it a time in the day to be your own person but then the the sort of joys in being able to provide for them despite a lack of health So that that was very much at sue I you know. I didn't want a female character. Who was sort of you know? I didn't want her to come from the male gaze at that makes sense. I didn't want to just be another stock email written by a guy. She sort of like hot ten running around ten cop like that's not Rachel Rachel Does Gee I want her to be so more of a real person than sort of character and do you. WanNa research for your books. I do yes So aside from talking to people to understand wait till You know there's a great piece I live in Hoboken. New Jersey is a great police department here so I talked to the chief of Police. Here and a couple of sergeants over there About the light because there are two detectives and who feature in the book John Toronto. Leslie tally to understand the job. Understand what it's like to be a cop but to be a family person to both the cops I spoke to the F. Families. They go home at the end of the day and they have wives they have children. And how do you balance that so to me? A lot of the book is sort of balancing the crimefighting aspect of it with also being a family member to and so you've written other books Before those were different series though so this is the first in this ritual meredith series correct absolutely essay. I wrote. I wrote one other series on the Henry. Parker's Ya thriller series. That was five books and then I wrote a standalone called the castle and I noticed that you mentioned also in the beginning that you've written children's book curious about that compared to writing these of adult thriller and Mystery Series. What's the difference? There is one of the other you know. I don't WanNa say easier because I do think you have to take care and writing for children. Because they're they're very very smart. I have I have a daughter WHO's Thirty two months and I voted for fifteen months. And they're both incredibly smart But it's a very different muscle. I wrote as sort of an adventure novel for kids. Zeke Bartholomew Super Spy And it was just. It was a you know by thrillers. They tend up. What a darkness in them and some violence in them. This was just a chance to do something that was totally fun And really exciting and adventurous. That didn't take itself too seriously Obviously you don't WANNA upset sacrifice quality so I wanNA say easier but it was more lighthearted and then the other children's book called Miracle which was a a children's picture book that was actually inspired by the journey. My wife and I went to have our first daughter. We went through the painful struggle of infertility so it was a picture book that was really dedicated to our journey into any other parents went from similar journeys of which there are many many many thousands and thankfully the response to both have been terrific. Interesting background because he actually come from the publishing industry side of things So you have your own of a little bit of a police books. Is that still going on used to work in that? Yes it's still going on Yeah thankfully I hope we'll go on for very long time so I before I started Right before I for Hardwick and I wrote I worked for Several different publishers. Three the big five companies one of the larger independent presses and launch police in two thousand thirteen. I really wanted to run my own. Press have a say over what we publish and how was published So I I always sort of wanted to work on both sides of the desk. I Love Books. My vocation I'm written word And I'm thankful that I have a chance to both published other people's books and also Publish my own You know my my own are not published through Polish. I wouldn't I would never do that but at the same time it it. I do. Think working both editor writer sort of each one helps me work. I on the other aspect of my career. That's a fascinating. I think a couple of other authors that I've interviewed also have their publishing companies but they're very adamant about not publishing their own companies to keep it independent or Y- I mean I I think once you start publishing your own books through your own company simply Vanity Press You're using you're using company resources for your own benefit you know any any revenue that we bring it from other authors. I think that'd be disingenuous. Petric their revenue directly put towards publishing and promoting my own book. So it was. It was never even a consideration. I would never publish my own books through company That also published other books So it was. It was very important to keep those separate cool interesting. So how do you balance running you got the publishing company? You write your books. You've parents is small children. And how do you how you do that? Let Ninety thankfully I very understanding wife kids and authors on. But you know. There's I wish sometimes we could extend the data thirty six hours The truth is as the old saying goes. If you want something done give it to a busy person. And that's that's that's really how it is you know in any given day. I am Writing one of my own bookstore. Editing one of my own books or promoting one of my own books or talking to my agent or talking to my editor or marketing people and then also working on police book's title's designing them marketing them editing them and then you know I have two small children and I like to be home every night to be able to be there. Have dinner with them or put them to bed. We've been story. Spent some time with them spending time with my wife before we put pass out And it's it's a daily battle. I'm time to do all that. So you know there are certainly some days. I don't get to do all of it perfectly but hopefully in the end of the evens out. Let's ready process when you're working on a book. Do you like do right in the same spot. Every every day or I I tend to be more of a Pantr- than a plotter and by that I mean. I don't tend to write detailed outlines. I know there's some opposite right. Incredible you know. Eighty page single spaced outlines. And essentially you have the entire skeleton of the book mapped before. They've written a real word of pros. I don't tend to do that. I tend to I tend jailing know-how book starts. There's a midpoint Around the center. Where maybe the plot turns or there's something where there's often a different direction and I generally have an idea of how it ends.

I play Roberts a publisher whose wife is Emma a gallerist and Robert's best friend Jerry who's a literary agent but at this point in the play the audience knows that Jerry I'm Emma had been having an affair and the conceit is it is genius is that in this scene the audience knows that Robert knows and that Jerry doesn't know the Robert nice and Jerry has come to visit Roberts and I'm at the house

the world I suppose leaving the womb all that what about go babies they leave that wouldn't it that's true it's also true no one talks much about girl babies leaving the womb today I'll provide that is and I see well what if you got to say I was asking you a question what was it why do you set that boy babies find leaving the room more of a problem they go bad I made such an assertion you went on to make a further research into the effect that boy babies I'm all anxious about facing the world then go you yourself believe that to be the case I do yes why do you think it is I have no answer do you think it might have something to do with the difference between the sexes good gawd yall right that must be S. hello surprise I was having tea with Casey where just from the corner I thought he lived in Hampstead someone you're out of date he's left Susanna he's living alone around the corner and writing a novel about a man who leaves his wife and three children and goes to live alone on the other side of London to write a novel about a man who leaves his wife and three children it's better than the lowest one the last one the last one was not a man about a man who lives in a big house in Hampstead with his wife and three children riding a bike and you like it I tells ya he's the best thing he's written it may be the best thing he's written but it's still bloody dishonesty sonics in what way dishonest I've told you actually have you yes he has one zero having dinner I remember you me Emma I'm Judith when was it am I gave a dissertation over the putting about dishonesty in KC with

squash okay books or even women with your friends and be able to warm to your theme without fear of improper interrupts and that's what it's all about what do you think Jerry I haven't played squash

Metrics and Mindsets for Retention & Engagement

"The conversation that follows is one of our more popular episodes from a couple years ago featuring general partners Andrew Chen and Jeff Jordan. In conversation with me on how after you acquire users which we covered in another episode than how do you keep them engaged retain them and even resurrect or re engage them and what are the key metrics but first we begin with what happens after the initial acquisition as different kinds of users? Join a product or platform over time. What does that mean for engagement? And where do cohort analyses? Come in one of the things that you see. Is that people end up using these products very differently because the kinds of users that you're getting are changing over time you know when you look at something like rideshare. All the early cohorts are basically people in urban areas. And then these days all of rideshare is more like suburban or rural folks. Because you know you've saturated all of the center and so what you tend to see is as you acquire your folks you know your core demographic out that actually ends up showing up in the engagement and so you know going back to the natural like kind of gravity to the whole thing this gravity also hits the engagement side of things as well and then ultimately the LTV because your users are typically getting you know kind of less valuable. It may take years to see this kind of play out. But that's kind of the natural law and there is a progression these and particularly the ones that are really successful early on it's all about getting users users. If you're wildly successful at doing that you run out of users. Are you start running low on users and you have to go to engagement? So pitchers has a very high quality problem right now. Most women in America have downloaded the PINCHER staff for years. So some growth can come through. Okay there's some number of women new nerd pinter somewhere in the country but much more so they need to engage and reengage the existing audience. I mean we love engagement from an investor standpoint. Because it's just that stickiness some you can often hack your way into new users. It's really hard to hack your way into true. Engage someone spending twenty minutes a day on your site offer up pinchers and offer. The major investment thesis was. Oh my God look at that engagement kind of thing and you know if they can scale the user base. It's it's a beautiful right. What we mean by engagement is actually interacting with them and seeing their activity because two Andrew's three points of acquisition engagement retention. The third piece is keeping them. The way that will often analyze this as looking at cohort analyses. We'll look at kind of each batch of users that's joining in each week and really start to dissect like well. How active are they really and to compare all these cohorts over time your basically putting the users that come in from a particular timeframe. Let's say it's a week right and you're putting them into a bucket right and what you're doing. Is You want to compare all of these different buckets against each other. And so what you typically do you look in a bucket of cohort of users and you say okay while once. They've signed up the week after. How active are they? And what about the week after that and the week after that and you can build out a curve and it just turns out that these curves once you've looked at enough of them surprisingly human nature. They all look kind of the same Ivanko. They kind of all kind of curve down. And for the good ones they start to flatten out and Plateau and then for the really good ones. They'll actually swing back up and people will come back to the service to what you WANNA do. You WanNa compare the various cohorts against each other in time to see if you can spot any trends on how the usage patterns are increasing or decreasing when you add a new layer two layer cake. You know you might unlock a bunch of new behavior. Reminding unlock a bunch of new frequency. That didn't exist before or alternatively over long thresholds of time people tend to become less active as you move out of your graduates whether or not a specific organizers. Flattens out is really important. Because if you're in a world where they kind of slowly degrades and then all of a sudden it will actually go to zero. That means that you're naturally always kind of filling up the bucket. You know you kind the leaky bucket. You're constantly and what happens. Is that gets progressively harder as you because if you want to keep your overall growth rate because that means you have to double triple quadruple your acquisition in order to counteract for that one growth accounting equation. That's often thrown around is that you're use of your net. Monthly active users equals all the new people that you're acquiring right minus all the people that are churned. Right and plus all the people that you're resurrecting you know engaging reengaging executives that are coming back after they've turned and so what happens is for a new startup. You are completely focused on new users. Because you don't really have that many users to turn and overtime as you get bigger and bigger and bigger what you find. Is that your your turn. Rates starts to you know. It's a percentage of your actives and so the evolution of most of these companies as getting bigger tends to start with acquisition then focused much more on churn retention and then ultimately also Laron resurrection as well in the CO occurs a couple of other features that I love what usually in marketplace businesses the best models are built off of the cohort curves. You have to understand that degradation and where it goes using. Cohorts really give you a sense of are there network effects and network effect is the business gets more valuable than more users that use it if it gets more valuable. You're newer cohorts should behave better than your early. Because the service is more valuable given how many there there's ten times more restaurants you're going to get a whole lot more reservations per diner because you were serving more on the need. So the open table courts would climb up and get more attractive over time versus we. Oh we talked about typically they tend to degrade over time if you've reversed polarity and they're growing overtime. It means you made the business more valuable and then you start projecting forward okay. What way to know. The business is actually more valuable than thinking is valuable bleed over on. May in a network business. We always ask. Show us the cohorts everyone asserts. I'm a network effect. I'm a network effect. But when you say show me. The data cohort curves show at the other. Really interesting part is segmenting it to actually ask you. What are the buckets of cohort? All demographic data for a bunch of hyper local type businesses. The reason why segmenting based on market geography why. That's so valuable is because then you can compare markets against each other. You can say well you know this market which has much more density in terms of the number of scooters behave like this and you can start to draw conclusions sort of a natural ab test in order to do that. And I think the similar kind of analysis you can do for B. Two B. Companies is for products that have different sized teams using it. If you have a really large team that are all using a product. Well are they all using the product more as a result? And let's compare that to something right. And so this way you can start to disassemble the structure of these networks and do they actually lead to higher engagement. Slack would be a perfect example of that. You know if you have five people in the organization using slack you get one use curve if you have you know the organization it's the operating system for the organization. You have a very different curve. It's not just an accident you have to sort of architect it not just expect. Barron deputy to volunteer place so after you get the new users the way that you have to think about it is around quality right. You have to make sure that the news turn into engaged users. One of the things people often talk about is just sort of this idea of an Aha moment or a magic moment where the user really understands the true value of the product but often that involves a bunch of setups so for example for all the different social products whether that's twitter facebook or pinterest etc. You have to make sure that when you first bring a new user they have to follow all the right people they have to get the on boarding experience which by the way isn't just signing up but it's actually doing all the things to get to this like a Ha- where you're like I get this product for me and once you get that. Then they're kind of didn't have the opportunity to keep them in this engage state overtime. Is that really such a thing that there is a a Ha moment or is it? Sort of like accumulated a lot of the later users on facebook came because everyone else was already there is this only tied to new users. Mukisa facebook actually the fact that everyone was already there makes the Aha moment that much more powerful because all your friends and family. They're already there. You're feeds already full of content. And the first time that you see photos that may be someone that you went to high school with that. Thank you so excited when I saw an old friend right right. Yeah exactly and so what that means like you get the product and then afterwards when you actually are getting these push notifications or emails. That are like hey someone's birthday or whatever you've internalized what that product is and this moment is different for all sorts of different companies. I've always heard this referred to as the magic number when you show up and it's a blank slate. It's like what is this about. But they would drive you maniacally to follow people because when you got to their magic number where they'd statistically correlated the number of followers with long term engagement and retention. They would kill you to get you there. Doing what felt like a natural acts of lake. Yeah you log on to follow and you say no and yes but what got you there it kicked in and the service then quote work for you the Entrepreneur I work with. They're trying to figure out. What is my magic moment that then creates the awareness of the value prop so take the example PINTER's pinchers when it goes to a new market first of all. They figured out. They need a lot of local content to make a compelling the local users the US Corpus of image is doesn't necessarily is helpful in international markets but isn't sufficient and I don't only want like skirts. Wear your exactly. I haven't worn in North America. Then once you have the content set then you have to get compelling information to that individual in front of them which you know. You don't know the individual when they walk in the door. The faster they do that the more quickly the better the business performs engagement goes up retention goes up and at work so different entrepreneurs had to figure out what is that. What experience do they want to deliver? Where people get it and then. How do you engineer your way into delivering

On Wall Street is the Wall Street Journal's Maureen Farrell joining us in the podcast duty. Oh comporting. Thanks for having me. So how does Thursday's big debut? How does it set the stage for the IPO market going forward? Because I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot of excitement in the tech IPO's phys. I think it sets it up. Very well. I think a lot of other companies are looking at the performance of zoom of a Pinterest. And I think it's going to. People who are considering it maybe would probably want to go. If you see how well these two companies at least on their first day. And of course, who knows what happens from here, but these were solid two huge debuts. I mean, the pops of zoom in particular more than seventy percent, we rarely seen that that was kind of do a double take at that figure. I was like what does that normal? It's not definitely sort of this darker horse, and the running it seems how did it shape up other than the big jump there that we saw and how do you see it shaping of? I mean, the jump was crazy not only the first day pop. But when you look at it twenty seventeen January raised capital, it was you'd at a billion dollars. So even when it went public before the jump. It was went to ten billion dollars, which is crazy to see in just a little over a year from private to public. And then, you know, an ended the day up even higher so it's a an incredible debut. I think a lot of people in Silicon Valley know, the company they used. Videoconferencing software. But I think a lot of other, you know, the broader public didn't know it as well as Pinterest, but there's excitement and its revenue and financial profiles. Incredible. The growth is really fast. There's a substantial revenue already, and it has profits and Pinterest as well very attractive to investors during its roadshow. What in particular pop for Pinterest? I think and potential investors really liked the growth story. It's still growing a lot. It's losses or not as steep as a lot of other tech companies. They're narrowing they don't necessarily need the cash as much they're getting a much closer. I mean, they're still not profitable. But they're not burning a ton of cash is this unusual for two companies with multibillion dollar valuations to go public like this on the same day. What do we make of it? We've seen it before. But not a ton. And there they were on each exchange. Zoom was on NASDAQ Pinterest on the NYSE. I think it just shows how hot the market is. Runs kind of racing to get out there. So they're only so many days and having said that up next is Uber. What else do we have to look forward to? It's still early issue in the year mover. Other names, we hear about it around or slack post meets the delivery service, those alone, and they'll be tons more. But those are three of the big names like the buzzy est as of late Maureen Farrell, it's a busy day. Like, we said, and we appreciate the time. Thanks.

I'm gonna say video conference call and you're gonna say oh from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Livio conference software company is doom goes public on Thursday, promising to make customers happier with their meetings hope springs eternal, right? Most video calls are still full of pauses delays garbled audio and unusable interfaces. Even though we really need this tech right now a Gallup poll last year found that seventy percent of people all over the world work remotely at least once a week. And globalization means a lot more remote offices and bureaus Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. He said videoconferencing tech is still pretty hard in terms of reliable bandwidth and video compression, and then there's just the human factor. People just aren't sure it's worth the trouble. Most people regardless of generation are a bit hesitant in terms of doing a call over video. So it's getting people interested comfortable with the technology and also showing value. So. If you're just doing it to be face to face, that's one thing. But if you leverage the ability to share the screen collaborate in real time, those are all additional benefits that you can bring with videoconferencing that that drives up the value of that video experience. Yeah, it's so interesting because we've been swimming upstream with this technology for so long is it possible that it is actually not the right solution? I think there certainly is a need for this. Because we know that depending on what studies you look at anywhere between about forty and sixty percent of communication is nonverbal. We as humans can both recognize and create almost a quarter of a million facial expressions without that video piece, you're missing out on a huge portion of the conversation by just having audio how much money is there. Do you think for the company that actually gets this technology, right? The whole thing with employee collaboration and putting a dollar amount on it is. Squishy when we'd use video in collaboration way. It's sort of like, well, you know, we saved this money on travel, and maybe we got to market a little bit faster too. And we had fewer meetings and things like that. But it's really hard to put a dollar sign on that, sir. But do we have a sense of how much companies spend just in kind of annual dollars on WebEx and solutions like that? It varies on the size of the organization. I will say that companies today because of this fragmented nature of the collaboration space, particularly related to video a relatively large companies losing about a million dollars a year in lost productivity because of this challenging video conferencing environment in terms of getting the call started on time getting the people into the call. That's very challenging in fact, some companies spend upwards of eight to ten minutes fiddling with buttons and getting people onto calls and that trans. Late into real money. Nick barber is an analyst at Forrester research. I should say there are high hopes resume in terms of its modern cloud based tech an interface, and as an investment, unlike just about every other tech company going public this year zoom is profitable and has had user growth over one hundred percent each year. And now for some related links zoom full name zoom video communications is planning to raise six hundred twenty six million dollars in its peo-. It's valued at eight point seven billion dollars currently and despite its actual profitability and user growth that's still less than the weeks. Other big IPO Pinterest expected to file on Thursday proposed valuation of ten point six billion dollars Pinter's hopes to raise one point two billion in its public outing. Although it has not yet turned a profit Pinterest. Did recently start showing more of an interest in making money trying to appeal more to advertisers. And adding features like buy button that let you actually shop for the pretty things that you like to stick on your virtual cork board courts has an interesting read this week on Pinterest, quote, frumpy midwestern charm, which is a little condescending. But it writes that the companies skipped the whole move fast. And break things attitude of companies like Facebook or Uber or Google all of whom have of course, been hauled before various authorities as a result Pinterest audience is mostly growing overseas. And is also two-thirds women who find Pinterest. Unlike most of the rest of social media to be a pretty nice place to hang out and dream of living your best life. I actually hadn't been to Pinterest in a while to be honest, but I went and peaked at it today. And apparently, my vision of my best life involves a very elaborate Halloween party.

Oh, no. He's not the killer. It's mitch's or I'm sorry. It's Mickey's data's dad. Yeah. I guess the reveal is fun enough that it's fine yet. And I'm fine with it. Yeah. But it wasn't like there's no. And especially like because foxy is like such a bizarre nickname. It is it is. Because also it seems like never get stocked about Riva just goes. Oh, I guess she calls him foxy knows it.

And the cashier is called the cops already. She's like, hey, mister, that's not right. He didn't steal and still. You can't just accuse him of things. He didn't do except we know instantly that he absolutely has stuff in his pockets. He's like empty your pockets. And he's like, hey, man. How 'bout FOCA kill you? Like showcase him.
