"That's that's where stock agencies come in and there's a lot of specific need so it's really like the long tail if you're familiar like the head head yet. Terms of like what you're looking for a generic beautiful landscape image versus the long tail. You need a little girl playing baseball with her dad on a blue sky background right like it's so district defeat your need. The people are willing to pay a lot of money to get that photo so it becomes a big data game a A search game like we're essentially a search engine for images and are you good now at predicting what people pay for. No not at all. We're terrible but we're getting better and we're working with us to try to guess at it or try to get good at it so we've got We've got two guys. We call them like our bi team that you just sift through the data right so basically we. We've spent the past. Year hooking up those data pipelines hooking up. We call the plumbing. And then you get these data scientists in there and they just start going through the data and finding opportunities search which so The the reason. I lost you is. I've been experimenting with a now in austin and i'm working out of an airbnb and i thought how do i make this work. Well i want to be challenged by the new environment. You know and i i put my computer far away from me but i really wanted to have something that allows me to hit mute. Close to my phone and there is What is that thing called a stream dak. But i didn't want to have another device. That's a streamed at stream decades this thing that gives you buttons that you can move anywhere you want you hit a button and it basically runs a macro or does it an action on software. I get that so there's an just didn't want to have another thing here. And i didn't know if it would work. So i put stream deck stream dex. I phone app on my phone. And i could control zoom from my phone which is now right next to my hand. My computer's anyway further away. It's not a hundred percent but it's still so fun to experiment so fun to say you know what everything is perfect but i wanna try different way. Let's let's try this new stuff. And i really believe that's how you identify the next opportunity right like at the end of the day. You're never gonna find something new and interesting different unless you're sitting there rapidly testing and iterating over time so you know. That's that's one kind of thing in our company to work it's really. How fast can we rapidly. Test this new idea and get it out there and you talked to ra disarm our producers said. That's one of the challenge is how do i experiment enough that it's meaningful but in an organized way so that it doesn't throw chaos into the company and imagine you wanna think new not just make constant marginal improvements on what you're doing right. Yeah and it gets out because a lot of times do a lot of work to get these tiny marginal wins And then you kind of have of did we really increase conversion or one percent or was it noise. it's very hard right And so then. When you start doing his you'll be for big swings right. Big wins Where you're not just testing the copy on a page or the color of button. You're literally redesigning the entire thing. And then you're asking bigger change and then you find one that wins and then you try to understand okay. Why did this win was it. The copy was it design. And i don't want to be split testing experts But it's just one of those things that you to be successful you've got to have the right framework setup to to do that over and over and over again so you get a million failures and then you end up finding the winds before you figure this out. What was what. What's an example of how you doing. You know what. Let's take a moment and pause. Right sponsor is rush. You and i've talked about how traffic is important to you. You do a lot of good search engine optimization your customer exam rush why do you rush. What's a good use for. sam rush. Love some rush so we're constantly looking at key pages qe-categories on our website understanding what happens to those pages when we make changes organically so we do a lot of ranked tracking with some rush and help us understand. Okay where we Where we showing up in google search results and we made this change last month year. And look at here. They're tracking our progress. Sometimes it goes the right way. Sometimes it goes the wrong way biting you might say. It's important for us to rank high for water photos because a lot of people are looking for photos of water. You'll you'll check them rushed to see where you're ranking now make changes to the site and if you're ranking goes down realize the changes made is wrong if it goes up it's improved and that's what you do yes and that's very hard It's it's kind of a general like directional change. It's very hard to split. Test google organic. Seo traffic the feedback loop is just so slow okay home so samaranch kind of gives you a directional idea of howard doing and then we're constantly you know with competitor analysis and things like that. Are industries very competitive. We wanna make sure we're tracking and watching all these other webs. Can you see through search engine optimization tools like some rushed it.
