The trump administration appears to have a plan later. Today it's expected to announce that it will loan about six hundred million dollars to accompany in connecticut. Makes an injection device that can be mass produced. Here's dina ten of npr's investigations team. That's the sound of a covid nineteen vaccine backup plan. It's a production line in columbia south carolina. That's turning out a novel injection device that the trump administration is counting on to help deliver the covid nineteen vaccine as early as this spring. Npr's learn that later today the administration will add to its already hefty investment in a company called apogee systems america and extend more than half a billion dollars to its effort to backstop the country's covid nineteen vaccine program. I'm jay walker. And i am the chairman of abject systems and you founded another company. We've heard of right. yes i am. Best known as the founder of priceline dot com the founder priceline. The man who put william shatner back on the map is now producing a single use self contained injection device. That's designed to be an alternative to glass vials and syringes. We called a seret. It's a little bigger than your thumb and it looks a little like the single doses of eyedrops that you get from the eye doctor. It has a hypodermic needle. That you screw into the end like you do when you screw in a nozzle on a tiny bottle of crazy glue. Only in this case it would carry any number of approved. Covert vaccines walker said. It's that effort that the us international development finance corp. is funding with a five hundred and ninety million dollar loan.

The vaccine being produced by moderna for example needs to be kept it. Arctic temperatures walker says the epa jet devices can handle that but the fda has yet to certified that that's true but then you can say that about a lot of the projects funded by the trump administration to try to combat the virus.

Mark Irvine on the State of Marketing

"Good Morning. Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall today. Our guest is Mark Irvine. He's the director of strategic partnerships. At Word Stream. GonNa talk to us about what's going on in the advertising space and we are going to focus a lot on cove nineteen in what's going on. He's done a bunch of research on how this has affected searches. And what's going on with all the ad networks so we're excited to have him with us here today. Mark thanks for joining US John. Thanks for having me. This really exciting. Let's take a step back. Talk to us about Word Stream. What do you do and how did you get there? So Word Stream is an online advertising software that agencies and advertisers alike use to manage their advertising across Google search display Microsoft Bing facebook and instagram and so effectively. A lot of what people do online is a lot of repetitive tasks. In terms of how you go about managing ad campaigns what we do is we try to supply. Yeah that's really the big thing for me when finding out about you guys and talking about what you do is just that as a marketing department gets bigger. You reach that point where you've reached the first milestone where you have one person that you're just kinda like okay you become the ads guru and they're the ones that are doing the testing and learning what's working and not working but then they hit a point where they have to roll them across all the different networks the different channels and it reaches this point where it's completely unmanageable you know. They're spending like an hour of each day in each of the tools and you guys are an alternative to that. Did you see a specific point when somebody finally just cries uncle and comes to talk to you? Is there any specific place where you tend to see people give you a call? Yeah you know. It's really interesting. Because a lot of the businesses we primarily work small businesses and a lot of the people who are working with. They're not just in charge of that one ad campaign but they're also doing email and they're also doing seo and quite frankly a lot of these small businesses they're oftentimes the owner or someone who's out in the field at the same moment in time what you can't do as you operate business what. I've learned I can't do effectively. I can't manage. People manage business manager ad campaigns and do a task all at the same time. If you're just learning paid search or if you're just learning online advertising we specifically focus on okay. Here are the seven things that you need you every single week to be successful on Google Bing facebook and as you go about adding to that yes of course google and being or Google and facebook. They all share similar concepts online. But how you go about making sure. That your touching all of your advertising equally in effectively is a learned task. Yeah I do love that idea of. It's not just. It's not a system for experts where it's a power tool that someone would go in and do all of this kind of stuff but it's really an expert system in that it's reaching out proactively using okay. Here's the things you gotta get wrapped up this week if you want this to work and and it kind of puts people on the right track. That's interesting to me though that it does go all the way down to kind of smaller businesses and people who that's not their whole job so I actually Kinda come in a lot earlier in the cycle that I thought was the case. Are there any guidelines as far as spend or like how much of the marketing mix is coming from advertising? Are there any stats there? As far as when somebody can reach this point you know we often see. We do have people who've never advertised before we have agencies who are just beginning to offer paid search to their Seo clients or what have you. They're just beginning to get in the paid search space. Broadly across the board. When I talk about thirty thousand accounts we see an average spend of about a thousand dollars a month so it's still relatively small across all of their networks but beyond that we take small businesses and we also have some some larger guys as well who use the platform for for time management just for honesty and credibility. It's one of those things that paid searches so simple to get started at so simple to feel like you know what you're doing and in that same process just dangerous enough to be bad at one of my favorite hobbies to do a google search for hotels and in your local city and then go and do the same search on bing and you'll see like expedia or priceline or these large brands off have very different ads across those two networks oftentimes inaccurate ads between the two. So it's very easy to have a large budget and still be unsuccessful on a network. Yeah Yeah I can understand that you are kind of all over the place and it's interesting to me to that it's great. That is all the way down at that thousand dollar a month price point. Because that's definitely doable for for small businesses. Especially if they're able to get a return it only a thousand dollars then. Yeah it seems like you WanNa get up and running as quickly as you can and get to the point where you're not worried about the logistics. But you're actually you know testing ads and getting some useful tweaking exactly. Logistics isn't the thing that gets anyone who has a bed in the morning. So whatever you can do to make sure that you're going in and making changes that are effective in your ad copy rather than just pressing a series of buttons and Google ads or facebook. How can you go about making change? That's GonNa Affect Your Roi. Okay now another interesting thing with your background that I wanted to touch upon love to hear about just kind of how you got to where you are but a big part of it. Is You know your data scientist for a number of years. So you have the background that that we love to talk about people kind of getting in playing with the number so tell us a bit more about your role as data scientists and how you got over there. Yeah it's really interesting. I at ridgely had no interest in marketing when I first started my career. I actually majored in math because my mother told me that. If you'd be willing to do people's math you'll always have a job. And so lo and behold I found my holden in marketing a world where traditionally people were not mathematically your data and I joined word stream about seven years ago and at the time word stream had a still a whole lot of thousands of individual clients. We had a lot of data. But what were we doing with? That data was unique to the individual account. My role as it is. Scientists was really investigating not just the role with an individual accounts. But what was going on across thousands of accounts win at change happened when the Google Surp- changed when new ad copy was tested. When they google start running out with new tests or started watching new ad formats. There are changes that people see in terms of the numbers and anecdotally. Everyone has some sense of what's going on their own account but what's going on at large. We suddenly became the largest data repository outside of Google to begin to run those numbers so I spent six seven years at word stream really just running the numbers under saying the trends in terms of what made someone successful with their online advertising our own client set and as a had all that data as I understood all of that started working closely with the individual ad networks with our partners at Google with partners Microsoft with their partners that facebook. And so now. I'm having Lengthy conversations about the changes that they're having and how I think it's going to impact our SNB's sweet

"Because Expedia does a great survey of all the car rental companies. Okay. And so you can see the prevailing rate that everybody has. And that'll give me what I need to know to then go to Priceline dot com and bid on a car rental. Okay. Most of the really cheap car rentals. I get from Priceline bids. I've never used Priceline cars, but I have used them several times hotels. I've never really followed that so that is a good idea. In addition to doing that. I have information it Clark dot com about how not to get taken at the car rental counter. Because I get so many complaints about people getting taken advantage of on the car rentals. Yeah. Heard some of your advice that you were talking about surcharges that might be added in when you turn a Korean or even in the contract, sometimes as you sign it, exactly. So you're up to date on that one other thing is that you would be wise to book car rental early, and then re shop it, and he wants you to a Priceline bid if they accept it. You can't do this step, but he won't haven't book price. I've just booked a regular car rental from wherever the week before you go re shop your car rental. And I'd say at least eighty percent of the time car rental rates have dropped from when I booked early on to very late and car rentals. There's no fee for cancelling a rental except again Priceline, which is completely non-refundable. Okay. Well, that helps a lot and it certainly does. We'll check out the. The mouse savers dot com, and I hope you have a great time. And you know, I was smiling thinking about something that you being a postal worker is that everybody assumed that the internet was going to destroy the postal service. And instead, it's given the postal service a whole new lease on life, and a whole new reason to exist with all the massive package volume. The postal service now has. Yeah. It is quite massive. And we did quite of the other couriers business to they send mail to us to work, actually. But I did fall victim of some of the internet impacts. We were consolidated from home office until another have to drive now fifty miles to work, but that's life. You know that that's something that we have to deal with. Fifty miles each way. And then you have to drive all day. No. I don't drive I work inside. Okay. Good. Yeah. So I'm I'm out of the elements, and I work during the day and all that all that works out. Good. But I do want to say before.

"Sessions resigned praise. The why now why would you say that spy would say praise because Mr. sessions was pretty anti marijuana is used to call it, but cannabis anti anything about it would not open like the government, they need to open their eyes and see the benefits and the enjoyment and all the other elements cannabis certainly invested vehicle and in whether you whether you whether you imbibing cannabis in a medical way through through western or eastern medicine. Or you're just a roller Pringles story short. It's a common just like prohibition didn't work. The marijuana makes millions of otherwise law abiding citizens of criminals, and we're not you know, how that prohibition thing workforce. How how how is the drug war working for us? It's not and the interesting part of this thing is as approaches as an investment vehicle. What's you're seeing is an opportunity here to take a look at some of these companies, and because it's really a new frontier we're able to talk to a couple of CEO's a public companies here and there one one one group of audience members. I can't remember if it was a bunch of radio guys or TV guys that emailed us about this company leaf buyer technologies. Put Rosner is the CEO. He's the chairman of the board of a company called leap are you going to leave buyer dot com. But he's right dead center in the middle of this of this cannabis vertical, and he joins us right now, Kurt taste. How are you, sir? Hi, how are you guys? Nice to meet you. So so you're the guy that people emailing us about this. This is the guy behind the league. We don't cover. Your mom called and said, she should get him on the can you tell us overall. I have to ask this question the very beginning because the tax benefits that you're seeing in Colorado, the tax benefits that you're sitting in Oregon and the tax is you're seeing in Canada are outweighing almost every argument against the legalization of not only medicinal cannabis but recreational cannabis. Why are they doing it? So right up in Canada. And we can't get it figured out down here. Well, I think overall I mean, if you look at the states, I think Colorado, and I'm a little prejudice because I live here, and we have our business here. But there are some states that I think are doing it. Right. I think California where you guys are has had a couple they've they've stumbled a couple of times. Well, we don't have it infrastructure here. Number one. You guys put it infrastructure in place before you legalize it. We just legalize it and said, oh, yeah, we packaging and testing. Yeah. And then they changed the rules, and it's gotten into I think you guys set yourself up much better than California did. Absolutely. And I think that's there's some politics two, right? I mean, you have Denver, which is a very left city, Colorado Springs, right city. It's kind of a mix here. Obviously. It's going more left. You know, as as the elections are going by. But I think that has something to do with it. You know, a lot of a lot of the business people had a voice versus, you know, more government having more regulation in this thing. So it's a good mix of both. Before we get to talking about leaf buyer. I also wanna talk about as a whole, do you think you think the wave is going to start in because it seemed like this thing was moving in the right direction that we sort of stalled a little bit during all what's going on the last eighteen months. I'm not talking about as an industry. I'm just talking about is the legalisation side of it goes, do you think that's going to ramp back up to see more and more states? What do we have twenty six right now or twenty one states got my fingers crossed a few more than that. I think they will continue. I'm very bullish obviously in this industry. I think that it goes in waves, right? We had a very large Porsche there's not as much. News coming out right now about everything the elections. There was some wins. I think overall there was some big wins in the cannabis space. But I think we'll see some elections in two years that'll keep adding to that I'm going to get a lot of these markets. You know, you're looking at Michigan on the map there that's gonna be a very very big market, very influential in that area in the rust belt. And I think obviously the west coast where you guys are obviously it has it has done it right Colorado in the middle there. I think we're going to see this really expand over the next few years. The the name of the company, by the way is leaf by technologies Karasu who are talking to here via Skype is the chairman of the CEO, and he we had some listeners viewers Senate saying this guy in the air to talk about this. So we decided to grab him here. He is talking about your company. What's the handy website? I'll tell you that. So what do you do there talking about Lifa? I think the easiest way to look at what what we do. We're a technology platform that connects cannabis consumers and cannabis dispensaries or product companies much like Priceline or orbits. You and the travel industry. That's what we do in this space. So we're are picks and shovels relative in the gold rush. So we are an answer. Larry technology company that can scale everywhere, right? We don't have as many boundaries as the dispensaries do and people come to our platform our network of platforms to connect with what they're looking for in the industry, flower, medicinal, etc. They can come to leave Barron.

"It's just a process that i go through this methodical for me that i get the really great rates on hotels now i have a big bias towards priceline i use hot wire for maybe ten fifteen percent of my bookings but almost everything else is on priceline the reason is that most people are afraid of not knowing where you're going to stay till after you paid non refundable because with priceline to get a real deal you have to be willing to book a place without knowing where you're actually going to be but it's not that big a deal once you follow some simple rules what i do is i book four star hotels are higher that have a approval rating from people who've stayed there of eighty percent or higher you're a four star hotel they has approval rating of forty percent i'm never going to grace at stores i'm never gonna see it i'd much rather be in a three star that has an eighty percent or above approval rating from people then a four star has a low approval rating so with the price line process you're able in a big city to pick well even a mid size you're able to pick what part of town you're in and sometimes you'll be able to suss out when you look at listings in a neighborhood you'll be able to see oh well there's only two four star hotels in that neighborhood and then go read on tripadvisor what people say about him and both of them are great you're fine buying the express deal from priceline were you don't know which hotel you're gonna be at in that area town but you know it's going to be one of those two that got really great ratings i mean it's it's not that complicated if you can cross that psychological threshold now why four stars are higher because who's coming up with the star ratings anyway and there's been an inflation in the stars that people say a hotel is a four star that ten years ago probably would have been considered to be a three three and a half and a hotel today that's rated three would have been probably a two not that.

"Various things involved with your life is to dig deep in areas that really matter to you and that just answering a question from someone you might not get the depth of information you're looking for in this edition talking about travel i'd say i confuse people more trying to explain how i get my ultimate cheap hotel rooms than anything else no earlier i talked about how my brother in his wife flew to ireland on an ultra cheap fare from newark to dublin well my brother called me and said the day before he was going gave me lots of notice he was having trouble finding any deal in a hotel and what was going on the hotels in dublin were in the hundreds of euros a night what should he do so i talked him through and walk them through how i book hotels on priceline and we got him a four star that had great reviews for eighty two us dollars which i guess is sixty nine sixty eight euro and it's just a process that i go through this methodical for me that i get the really great rates on hotels now i have a big bias towards priceline i use hot wire for maybe ten fifteen percent of my bookings but almost everything else is on priceline the reason is that most people are afraid of not knowing where you're going to stay till after you paid non refundable because with priceline to get a real deal you have to be willing to book a place without knowing where you're actually going to be but it's not that big a deal once you follow some simple rules what i do is i book four star hotels are higher.

"So they're still says we automatically slash your rental rates they need to change that 'cause i know on the page where it's still for people that are price sensitive and want to chase savings the fact that they at least a weren't you is helpful but not like before and what i wasn't clear about is like a i keep saying make sure it doesn't say victory you're allowed to cancel and you know sometimes that wasn't easy to find but i've already had to do it four times and then i thought do i have to call and cancel these other reservations and that's actually what i did i have a chart cancel one it's like what day i did it you know and then what the new booking is right so there's there's this cat and mouse game going on with customers and car rental companies and the problem the car rental companies have faced is that anything else you book with travel you own it when you buy it right because tell room let's you cancel it with a hotel room you buy an airline ticket unless it's on south west second you buy it you own it and so the thing with the car rental companies is they're trying to guess how many people are gonna know show so more and more the car rental companies are saying hey if you'll commit to us and go ahead and pay us we'll give you a lower price than if you just make a reservation you know the one where you prepaid but after i got burnt with the company they're fine meet you i didn't want to do that anymore i'm curious just just to know was that hot wire priceline that you've got burned with the bad hot wire.
