35 Burst results for "Sixty Dollars"
Tactical Tuesday: Hands From Greatness Village
"Let's start out by breaking down this hand. Thomas played in a live poker streets. So this had it's at five ten twenty live somewhere in. La starts with a fish in the cutoff opening to sixty dollars. Another fish on the button calling and a very strong pro calling the big blind and thomas completing from the straddle with jat nine diamonds So there's two hundred forty dollars going to flop. The flop has ten seven deuce rainbow The flats checked around. I don't know if you wanna have a brief discussion agenda on on on docking swap and whether You know thomas his hand or or this situation you think warrants dunk so yeah. I don't know that. It warrants donkey. But i would say that the details that i would like to have available or add in would be if there's any sort of indication from either of the fish that they've kind of just mentally given up the hand i think if there's some sort of live read that you can cobble together to influence your decision here than i would prefer if say one of those players is it has already mentally checked out. I think that's pretty reasonable spot to dunk there. And then there's gonna be lots of like over cards. I think the fish and position or going to play their value pretty straight forwardly so we can apply lots of pressure on various run outs. Plus we have position on the pro. So yeah. I think that like i wouldn't mind a dunk. If we know that one of the players has mentally checked out. But barring that if we don't have any information then i'm just going to check long and kind of see what happens. Yeah i mean. I don't i don't play very many multi to begin with It's pretty rare where i even have do that. Just that until like another thing. That i would like to kind of know about or see before deciding whether or not i wanted dunk. Slop is whether there's a diamond on the flop vow would go a long ways towards shifting towards like putting me in the category But we don't know. I'm just gonna assume that there isn't a diamond on the flop because i mean coach. Thomas is the type of person to to definitely to put that in there if there was a diamond but it's ten seventies rainbow vodkas. Checked around turn is an off suit nine and the pro and the big widened butts. One seventy five and to forty again thomas. is jack nine of diamonds. So he turns. I compare now has got shot or excuse me got shot. So now has a pair and got shot on the turn I just solved the mystery by the way. So if the turn is an offshoot nine then it must mean that. We have a diamond on the

How to Price Your Product Service or Offer for Profit
"So let's talk about pricing. This is one of the areas that so many entrepreneurs struggle with i know i myself did the first story i want to share with. You is when. I came to southern california and i decided i wanted to be a personal trainer. What i did was ask around to figure out what everyone else was charging. An i determined what my price would be based on going lower than everybody else not the best pricing strategy and. I'll just tell you. Transparently that. The reason why i did that is because i didn't value what it was. I had to offer a classic case of imposter syndrome now. I was a very confident individual. I was even confident in my own knowledge and ability. But when i thought of other people who did the same thing that i was doing i thought about how much more experienced they were. I thought about how much more well known they were. And that made me feel like. I didn't belong there and that i didn't deserve to charge the same rate that some of my competitors charging so i charged forty dollars an hour when i knew there are other trainers charging a minimum of sixty five dollars an hour. Today i pay my own personal trainer. One hundred eighty five dollars an hour and there are still trainers out. There charging forty dollars an hour and here. We are twenty years later. I would bet that there are trainers out there. Maybe even trainers listening to this episode right now who are charging forty fifty sixty dollars an hour and they're far more knowledgeable and perhaps even more experienced than the trainers who were charging hundred seventy five two hundred dollars five hundred dollars an hour and if that higher priced trainer has a full schedule they also are enjoying a lot more freedom

Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside.

Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace.

Why the Internet Is a Luxury
"Hi emily irony. How many people in the us don't have access to the internet so this is actually a surprisingly hard question to answer. The fcc says that they think it's around twenty million people so that's about seven percent of the population you kind of think of the size of the population of new york state or Florida but some groups say that it's much higher maybe even double the amount. It's a lot of people so it might be new york and florida don't have the internet. Might be new york and florida which is big so before we get into politics are involved here. I think it's important talk about some of the bigger factors and internet access and those two biggest ones are geography and income. Can you explain why geography and income affect whether people have internet or not. Yeah so. I think the way that i think about this is sort of that. Broadband internet isn't access problem. But it's also in affordability problem so we talk a lot about the access problem which is sort of the geography part here rate the. Us is a very very big country. And how do you get internet to every right. Which is why they're a gazillion congressional hearings on rural broadband. Right like everybody has heard about this because there are just as you said. Us a big country. There are mountains in the middle all sorts of challenges to getting people. The internet part to here is the one that we don't talk about. Which is the affordability problem. So basically even if an internet line runs by my house. If i don't have sixty dollars to pay for that i don't have access to the internet so it really is a two part problem
Want to Talk About Video Games?
"That everyone who listens to talking tech knows you and i like video games. But there's so many games out there. We can't get to them all let alone do a deep dive on them right. Yes absolutely so. One of our editors josh avera came up with this idea of giving readers forum at usa today to talk about a beloved game or anything else in video games. They're passionate about so you can go to tech dot. Usaa dot com. Go to video games and one of the examples of this is a story about microtransactions written by it professional leaf morganson. If you play video games you've likely come. Across a micro transaction is basically. When you're in the middle of a game and you get a prompt that asks you if you want to pay say dollar or two dollars or more for suffolk virtual money or upgrades to your character. Now as leaf points out you can usually earn virtual credit in the game to pay for those things. But if you're like me or fear like other players you might not be as patient One example he brings up is a sports video game and with a lot of the sports video games. They have a mode where you can create your own player and say do this in the nba. And you can start from rookie season and work your way up in as you play each game you'll build up your skills and you'll get better and better so you might start out like with a sixty rating out of one hundred but in order to have a player that can be competitive. You might want to get it up to eighty five or ninety or something like that so trying to grind that out and get to that level can take a while you have to play a lot of games and it can take depending on how much time. You're spending several weeks a month. How retakes or you can spend money. And that means that you know in on top of the money you may have spent on a console game for example like sixty dollars or seventy. If you're on next gen you're talking about paying way more for video game than you expected so in this story leaf admits that he pays his way sometimes but suggests you get more out of earning your experience and at the same time giving game companies all your money by trying to develop your character naturally instead of using it with your dollars.

How Does Tik Tok Lead Generation Ads Work
"Last year since it really grew. And hey should i be on tiktok that you know as my audience there and so that's what i really wanted to talk to you about recently. Tiktok launched legion as one of the campaign objectives and it really just copies the campaign objectives from google from facebook from linked in twitter. And you'll notice if you're setting if you're setting up in ads account on any of those platforms. One of the first things that are going to do when you're looking at the ads. Creation is choosing the audience right. That's one of the things but the first step is really choosing the objective. And so if you go on tiktok in the ads manager part of tiktok you can see that. They now offer lead generation as one of the objectives right so if you wanna generate leads beat a b. or b. two c. It's there for tiktok whether it's gonna work for your business or your product or service or industry it. You'll need to test. I am testing it right now with a couple different clients. I'm testing it with my podcast. I actually just set up a lead gen campaign on tiktok for fifty dollars to run over the course of actually sixty dollars over the course of. I believe it's three days. So that's the minimum or you can choose the other minimum which is Twenty dollars a day but if we look at the audience the way i see it as this sixty two percent of all tiktokers are in the. Us are between the ages of ten and twenty nine. so that's not my audience. I know my audience the majority of the decision makers that i worked with them daily basis as a b. two b. service provider. My audience is forty five to sixty five years old. That's those are the people that are almost always making the decisions on building account. So you have to figure out if you're a b. two b. is your audience there presumably if they're telling me that sixty two percent or ten twenty nine than the other thirty percent are thirty years to sixty five years. Don't but i don't know a lot of adults who are of a you know even my my age category genetics Spending too much time on tiktok nevertheless even if you can get a small audience and generate some leads. Hey you wanna be creating brand awareness. If your lifestyle brand you sell products and
Deutsche Bank Is Still Hot for Apple Shares
"Deutsche. Bank is still hot for apple. Shares tip ranks has deutsche bank analyst sydney ho issuing a note offering iphone numbers about which i do not care. Okay that's not true. The numbers are interesting and notable. Though the part i find most interesting is his news around apple retail about half of apple store. Customers have come back like physically. According to mr ho wall store traffic bottomed out. In the spring of twenty twenty it has improved sense and is now at about forty percent of fifty percent of the volume seen pre pandemic. It's like the reverse of that. Nature is healing thing as for iphone. Those numbers are relatively consistent. In fact those are his words tip. Rank says since the pandemic's onset the iphone share of the us installed base and length of smartphone ownership has remained in hose words relatively consistent when looking to make a smartphone purchase. The beat goes on to say fifty seven percent of iphone users and tend to get the latest model just below the fifty nine percent. Who plan to do so. In december of twenty nineteen storage wise lesser inclined to get five hundred twelve gigabyte models the highest amount of bailable although sixty four gigabytes appears to be insufficient to most since december twenty nineteen consumers. Buying sixty four gigabyte models have dropped from percent to eight percent while in the same period those purchasing one hundred twenty eight gigabyte models grew from twelve percent to twenty four percent. Sounds like a better asap to me as for the five g super cycle. Ho doesn't seem to think it's here yet. Quoting his note. The launch of five g smartphones does not seem to have significantly change the length of smartphone ownership both iphone and other although we do expect a refresh cycle to accelerate when five g. infrastructure is more built out. Deutsche bank has by reading on apple shares. the firm's price target on the shares is one hundred sixty dollars
Sonos announces it's new Roam speaker
"Let sarah santos events ish. They announced a portable bluetooth speaker. Called the rome hundred sixty dollars. It's pretty cool. Yeah it's a uey boom with sonos logo. Very chris wallace because he likes scooped. The whole thing so like the element of surprise is like compared to the boom. It's got sun tech in it. You can also just like seamlessly move audio if your bluetooth thing it to that speaker you can move it to the rest of your center speakers which is cool. Yeah it seems like is about to dramatically expand this product line. Yeah you know it's funny. This is the first really portable sonos product like they had the move was at twenty thousand or something like that. But that was portable from like your kitchen to your porch. Nobody really is bringing that thing around. 'cause it weighs eleven pounds but this is boom sized thing so we're very familiar with that foreign factor. You throw it in a bag take into the park. You take it to the beach. Take it to a friend's house for whenever we can do that again. And like it's bluetooth speaker and then when you're home it's a wifi speaker in integrates with your wifi so system which is really bad so i think it's pretty cool. I think a lot of sonos customers have been wanting this for a long time. I don't know how many people outside of the sonos world will be interested in it but yeah that's a big question is is this going to be an entree into the living dishonest life or not. I love that. They may basically through every feature that i would ask for right. I'm like oh. What do i want to have bluetooth speaker with everything. Okay i google assistant. I want lexa. I want wi fi to connect to sonos. I want bluetooth. I want wireless charging office standard. She pat i wanted to charge a usb. And i don't want to be too big and i wanted to. You know have good sound like they just checked down the list. Like if i had to complain about the spec i would say that the the handoff feature uses like super super high frequency tones that nobody can hear instead of just using an ultra wide band. Or something like okay. Who cares that's really what's tv but a different kind of frequency. Anyway i mean really for for yeah. That's true so i like this thing. Is it worth seventy like. It will be for me. I think because i will. I have it integrated into my sonos system. I will say this in a question that only virtual would ask. We confirm that you cannot use surrounds versa. That's garbage. i take it all back. The only people who asked people care. But i personally loved the idea of putting my surrounds away. Bring you a so funny battery operated through. I don't think anybody else cares about that. It's true they've packed every feature into it. It's very competitive. I think that the idea that like most most days you don't get any value your bluetooth speaker right like it's just like at home. He put it in a closet. You take it out when you want to travel or like your house because it's part of senators. You might get a lot of value out of it. Might like keep it in your bedroom and use it there most days and then we want to leave up and go especially if you buy the charging dock but like patrick spencer. Good friend of our show give in to the yank protocol. He's like we're expanding. We're going to put this thing in stores. You might not expect like particularly outdoor stores looking towards that camping stores. They're moving to expand the product line out of its normal
A look at the global oil market
"Get ready for it. Here's what's happened to the global oil market in the last twelve months in trader argo removed. From what is called tango to backwardation a backward dated market. That's energy consultants. Stephen shark and to explain. In regular people terms the contain go market happened when crude oil demand and prices plummeted after the pandemic hit then in the fall the global economy came out of covert hibernation and needed more oil and gas demand. Now is beginning to outstrip supply. There's a lot of optimism about a vaccine the economy's globe opening up which has driven prices up. Alex ramos at rice stat. Energy says that's good news for shale oil producers in the permian basin of texas and new mexico one of the most terrific than one of the most affordable sources of oil nowadays globally so with all of the efficiencies that we've seen in drilling and fracking essentially all areas of the permian are commercial and very profitable at sixty dollars but more oil pumping profitably out of the ground. Doesn't necessarily mean and other boom time in rig workers jobs and pay that's because there's been massive consolidation accelerated by the pandemic says analyst. Michael orlando at econ. One research. we saw a record number of bankruptcies in the oil and gas sector in twenty twenty and we were going to see a contraction in employment. The industry cost reduction in the industry. Employment in oil and gas drilling is down about five thousand since before the pandemic and down about seventy thousand since the peak in two thousand
The inventor of the cellphone calls on carriers to focus more on closing broadband gap
"Following. It's the second part of our four part interview with martin cooper inventor the phone. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge or one of the issues. I've talked a lot about on this podcast and seen that in general the issue of the digital divide. I know you talked about that near the tail. Ender near the second part of your books. I'd love to get your perspective on really the deserve holistic impact of the cell phone and whether or not it's been a force for good in how it's been a force for good in closing that broadband gap that digital divide. We'll just think about this routers The whole educational system has been challenged today because the teacher gets up and gives a lecture and he's talking to a bunch of students if they're connected if they have smartphones they have access to all the knowledge the world the shakers not gonna give them information that they can find words so the whole nature of what a teacher is changes. The teacher now teaches people how to reach out for of religion. How to handle it. Taylor's educative process to individuals that having a lecturer to talk a people each different girl every other person. So we discover that what the result of this is that people's minds the challenge borden. They did before and the result of that. Is it their brains. Get bigger thinking smarter. Just think about that. Now that in this country one of the most advanced countries not in the world but in history forty percent of the students in this country do not have access to broadband wireless forty percent. Just imagine what that means over long term when the educational process chain that we end up with forty percent of the population with bigger brains. They're smarter or sixty percent and forty percent are dummies unacceptable with Broadband wireless now as essential to people as water food. So somehow that problems got to get fixed at the moment. The government is not digging right approaches. The only way to do that is through a first of all accept the fact this is essential and go to the carriers people have exclusive use of a spectrum and tell them either. You service all of the public or we're going to allow other people to do it. The technology exists to provide students with robin wireless whereas littlest cyber ten dollars a month. At that level everybody can have access to the but semi were we have to remove moves us exit seventy two big guys t verizon d mobile. They're doing a great job for the dense areas for the city's suburbs. They are not to have good job for the rural areas. They are after a good job for the people that can't afford a sixty dollars a month for a cellphone. The technology exists to do the both of those legs to handle people that can't afford into the rural areas and it's up to the government now to do figure out ways for business to provide those two kinds of services. We have to have one hundred percent accessibility for students and ultimately for everybody. Because i i'm so delighted you read the book because you know that it's not just education it's healthcare we're all going to be ultimately connected have have our bodily characteristics measured continually. There is the potential that we can anticipate diseases in people before they happen. Just because we're measuring things continually so healthcare is going to be a revolution. You can't provide after one segment of the public but public and keep it from other people so between those two issues education healthier and then you get the most important wall in. That's what your profession is is. Collaboration is getting people to talk to each other to generate ideas to people who are always more creative corporate than one person but of you got people talking to each other groups independent of time independent of where they are the potential for improving the productivity of people will be such that the idea of poverty will disappear. There's going to be enough for everybody. There is no reason why everybody can't be wealthy announced. Never worry about food or housing and everybody can't downs. The education served there.
As COVID-19 ravages the world, closing the digital divide is more critical than ever
"The digital divide continues to be. A massive problem made worse by the coronavirus. Pandemic things are especially bad in appalachia. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge sina is once again taking a look at this problem. Our series crossing the broadband divide and story in the latest package. Takes a look at the unique problems in appalachia a region with some of these slowest access speeds and accordingly lows incomes in the country with us to talk about. This is editor. Ray hodge welcome. Ray hey roger how are you so to kick things off. He gives us a sense of how big the broadband gap problem is in this area. I loved do that if we could actually find that information out in an accurate way and see. That's the that's the core problem. Isn't it the the big core problem here is that we don't have a full and complete rendering of the map of this digital divide because for many years. Now our our mapping has focused on deployment and not speed or actual access so while we have information about what census tracts have at least one connected household in them. We don't actually know. How many houses in each one of these census tracts is connected end accessing broadband much less whether or not they're getting the speeds that we normally classified as high speed broadband right and so we are looking at numbers that are probably severely. Undercounted the sec report which came out last month said that the number of folks who don't have access to broadband when down to fourteen point five million from about eighteen million a year ago most broadband experts. I think almost all broadband experts including the federal government and folks on the fcc all agree that that number is probably dramatically low and undercounted And and there's been a lot of issues you pointed out with the data behind these broadband maps that the fcc charge of some changes coming and we'll talk about that later later in the but let's let's get back to your story because you take a look at the appalachian region specifically you grew up in kentucky. You still live near louisville this curious. What broadband access has been like for you your family and how. It's changed over the years so we were based out of eastern kentucky. My family was and we've moved away from there. So i'm i'm what you would call the gas for the appalachian diaspora but i didn't get Internet in central kentucky until the same year. We got city water. Run out to our place somewhere around nine hundred ninety eight something like that and even though of course it was it was screeching -ly slow. Pardon the the the dialup pun. But yeah it's been intermittent right so it's taken that long to get it and where i live now in louisville i've got one gig fibre pay around sixty dollars a month. Which is the national average but there are still people out in the areas. Where i used to live in where you know. It may cost him one hundred dollars a month to get dsl equivalent speeds. It's insane the disparity there but growing up with This sort of Slow crawl towards access. It's remarkable to see what progress has been made because there is some but it's incredibly frustrating to see that after decades. This is still happening. These these problems are still happening. You're still dealing with a basic infrastructure and speeds. That are nearly unusable when it comes to like that so you talked a bit about the map and faulty data behind that but what are some of the other issues that has made broadbent hard to come by in this region so we've got a constant narrative going on where it's always sort of presented as a problem with hilly terrain and were unable to run lines or the the issue is often kind of bought and sold by that narrative. And that's really that's only one small part of the equation right. It's not just about hilly terrain because we've been able to make all kinds of technological advancements in these areas all kinds of construction industries like the mining and coal industry have no problem navigating hilly terrain. So you know. Mountains are not necessarily the thing that is always stopping Companies running out there a lot of the times it has to do with the fact that When it comes to infrastructure it has to do with the fact that it's not as profitable for for companies to run lines out into rural areas right even though they may be picking up subsidies and there was some fraud that had gone on in different rural regions By companies historically who claim to have all these people connected and then didn't so that's one part of it the infrastructure politics behind that the other part of it is that there are two digital heights right. There's one which is i. Don't have the lines. I'm divided from my lines. The other one is. I'm divided from the ability to pay for it which is actually the bigger digital divide across rural and urban areas.
Three Marketing Trends to Look Out For in 2021

Many industries are a surge in online shopping online purchases buying things whether it's products or services or tools online. And here's some data for you. Depending on the industry of various from one industry or the other but the minimum growth of online sales was twenty. Five percent in some industries saw up to five hundred percent growth if there was any apprehension of ever buying things online or being reluctant to put a credit card on a website. Those as are totally over cove it has obliterated those objections or the hesitation. And it's been a year. It's been at least nine months for most people in the world who have had adopt to buying things online with grocery whether it's renewing their insurance with our buying coaching or therapy online. The point here is is that this is now. This was a short thing. At least nine months of this was going on so people are in the habit. They're comfortable with checking out online. Now you might be saying. Hey omar that's great But i've been online for years. What does that have to do with me. Well this means that your checkout process has to be on point acid efficient. It has to be fast. Many industries are really upping their game when it comes to check out. This is one of the focuses. We have in our business whether ninja some of the things that you can do to improve the checkout process. So people are having a more pleasant experience and they come back to buying your products and services is a more options for payment. One of the options Haven't adopted yet but we'll be adopting in two thousand. Twenty one is incorporating apple pay into their checkout process. over sixty percent of the internet's traffic is on mobile. That means people are going to be on your side. They're you buying things with their phone and a smooth transition to check out without pulling a credit card out of their wallet using apple pay is going to put you ahead of the game. It's gonna make it easier faster. Simpler for your customers already been predicted that apple pay is going to see a huge jump in twenty twenty one. Many studies have shown that by the end of twenty twenty one. The ten percent of all transactions around the world will be with apple pay. That's a huge slice of the pie. You can tap into that you can increase your checkouts by offering an easy way to check out if you're using a stripe for example checkout already have apple pay built in. You just need to make sure that your interface or checkout process has apple pay a shop affi- store they have apple. Pay already in there so you can really just this on. It's going to take you a few minutes or maybe an hour to set this up on your site and you're good to go trend. Number two people have been watching videos for a very long time but twenty twenty has saw the most significant jump in video consumption ever in history forbes recently published an article showing that in twenty twenty people watched five online videos a day whether it's to whether their videos on people's websites these platforms are designed to keep them watching again. This is a habit. This is a new normal. the has been established. People are watching more and more online. Video is becoming. The medium of choice for communication on top of that youtube tubes algorithm for search engine optimization has gone bonkers. It's incredibly incredibly sophisticated. If you search a term on youtube not only does it search for you know the titles and the descriptions and the comments for those terms it actually knows when somebody actually says those words on the video and will give you a result of based on that. So if you're asking me you should go bullish on video this year. Two thousand twenty one. You should have a video content strategy whether it's a weekly series whether you're running webinars whether you're doing live or recorded video with youtube channel the players that you wanna tap into what people are already doing instead of force people into something that you like doing her new like consuming you're like producing it's never been cheaper. To produce videos now you can get a you know hd or four k webcam for under one hundred dollars get a ring life for fifty dollars and a decent mike for about sixty dollars and you got a home studio. If you're on a mac you have free editing software with movie. Even if you're not on a mac you can always Go with adobe subscription service which you can get their dobie premier Video editing software for like thirty dollars a month an indispensable tool if you're going to get serious about video and twenty twenty one highly recommend you start thinking about what video content you want to produce. It doesn't have to be talking heavy. It could be interviews. You could be reaction videos. It can be collapse as long as it's entertaining. It's engaging it's informative. People will watch trend number three and this one's a big one and it's gonna affect a lot of businesses and you really should start looking into how you can adjust your business to your website. Accordingly and that is privacy and security. This has been something. That's been percolating in the news for some time. This is particularly important when it comes to the way you are going to be advertising to your customers typically if you want to run facebook ads for example you have to put what's called a tracking pixel on your website this facebook to know when somebody's on your website so they can serve them ads on facebook and also allows them to track conversions. The issue is that data gets an owned by facebook. And a lot of it is some information that a lot of gonna wanna share like we'll computer browser on their location. If they're signed into facebook they know a whole lot more. Even you know who they are their likes are wants. All the interactions. They've had on facebook and basically facebook contract this person as they're moving around the internet and this is becoming more of a problem is becoming more of an issue because feel realizing wow. I'm being tracked We started to see this a couple of years ago with the cookies. Message that you see for gdp are people say. Oh the cy has cookies. And it's a way for us to track and people just ignored it and they're just click. Okay things are going to get a little bit. Hotter apple has already announced that in their next ios update for was fourteen. They're going to have actual pop-ups actual System messages from the operating system telling the user telling the person with the iphone. Hey this site has a tracking pixel. Do you want to be tracked. And it's actually quite a statement. It's actually something you really can't ignore. You have to say yes my movements or no. I'm paraphrasing of course. But the point here is that the privacy issue of tracking people is becoming more and more a- battle and obviously apple is going because their brand is all about privacy and security and boy do they have a market share so a lot of your users a lot of people that use iphone. You know if they're use. Iphone are going to see this message on your site. This means you can't have a tracking pixel and you're gonna have to think of ways to market your business you can. Of course run ads without attracting pixel. But you can't track conversions. Which makes it really hard for you to be able advisor ads. Which then begs the questions. Should you run ads. So this is something you need to keep an eye on and you need to plan ahead already in our business. We're trying to move away from paid advertisement or paid acquisition where customers into long term long tail content marketing whether it's a blog whether it's videos whether it's youtube whether it's partnerships with as their affiliates. The point here is that we want to own the traffic. We ought to be able to rely on our own content to bring us a traffic and not use. Third party apps to advertise. This is a big shift. It's not easy. It's not just facebook. Google or anybody else that has any kind of pixel on your site or requires a pixel so that you can track conversions so if you use paid. Acquisition us paid ads on lincoln on facebook on google. You may want to think of other ways to bring in traffic at least wean yourself off of the a bit because it's not going to be as effective as it used to emmy even get more expensive so there you have a guys three trends to look out for twenty twenty one. Get on top of this and be ahead of the game.
How often should I increase my rates?
"So doug asks on cuny wednesday. How often should i increase my rates. Last time doug increases rates it was all over eighteen months ago. So it's in my opinion time to do so. I actually think the maximum time. You should wait before you increase. Prices is eighteen months actually. I think you're just at the point where you really really really should be increasing prices. Especially if you're doing regular work this whole time the value you're giving your customers day in and day out now project after project is getting better and better every day and therefore you should be charging more for the increased value. I want to address A little bit of doug's of raising his prices he does own a ternary his existing customers. Ona discourage them from working with him again. I want to tell you from a customer's point of view. Who hires a lot of freelancers. That hires a lot of employees. If i work with somebody who delivers who. I come back and work with again and again. My biggest concern is not really them. Increasing the prices. My biggest concern is that they're not gonna be able to do. The work might have to find somebody else. That's really my worry paying a little bit more in order to get the same town. Does he get the consistency to get what i expect. Is a very very small price to pay. Many people. Don't realize that from a company's point of you from our point of view consistency is so important knowing what you're gonna get Having expectations and having them fulfilled this is incredibly valuable them so they don't wanna let that go and if you say hey My prices have gone up by raise. Gone up it's not out of this world. You know this is normal. Anybody who believes the service or create any kind of content. You know musician makes more money today than they did. Three years ago because they've gotten better as a musician or an athlete or any kind of professional. Like i mentioned a doctor lawyer. A service provider plumber and again from my perspective as somebody who's hiring somebody to do a service. I'm okay with paying more. If i'm getting good work done. I actually found that higher rates are not discouraging to actually things. I look out for actually want somebody who charges a bit more for example. Your website developers. Somebody comes to me and says hey you know. I charge eighty dollars an hour. You know that might seem expensive. But that person charges eighty dollars. An hour is experienced. The know what they're doing and they're probably going to be able to complete the project faster more efficiently And more accurately than somebody who's charging maybe half that forty dollars an hour depres is going to take a lot longer is going to have a lot more roadblocks and may not be able to do the project as well as somebody who is charging much more so sometimes you actually save money in the long run and serious buyers who aren't so price sensitive are the kind of customers you want to attract so in the long run increasing. Your prices are really going to help you. Increasing your rates so minimum increase their prices every eighteen months. You can even do it every year. But that's kind of my recommendation chain a year eighteen months now how to do this well. It's very simple the next time you engage with customer you can just mentioned it. Hey by the way last time this was my rate since then i've increased my rate. It's currently this over this project. It's going to cost x. Amount of money and stop talking or stop writing a lot of people that go on and on. Is that okay with you. I hope that's okay once you is that okay with you. Ask a question. Is that okay. That is opening up a negotiation. Because they can say well actually you know if you just say it as a fact. This is my right now. This is how much it cost now. And there's no question at the end of it people gonna be like okay. That's what i gotta do now. Many service providers have done a to type pricing strategy to. I think is really good Actually increase the prices for new customers at one rate and recurring customers or a returning customers than others. So for example they'll take their rate in the increase by twenty percent. That's the new price for new customers so people that don't know any better. You know know your first price. Best the price they know and four returning customers. It's fifteen percent and you can mention this to your returning customer. Because a hey buy. New prices are twenty percent higher. My new rate is such and such but I can give you a return customer discount so it will be so so and so it'll be only fifteen percent more the shows that you respect loyalty and appreciate their business and then hey you're giving them a little something special. How much should you increase. Will it depends on how often you increase your rates. Let's say for example you're increasing. Every year i would say no less than five percent and no more than twenty percent any more than twenty percent. Twenty five thirty It becomes a dramatic jump. This is why it's more Advisable to increase their prices every year rather than waiting every two or three years because then the jumps are going to be quite high but even fifteen or twenty percent increase may not seem too high but will make a big difference for you for all your clients so say for example. You're alary fifty dollars. A twenty percent increase is only going up to sixty dollars but across all your hours across all your customers. It makes a significant difference now. One of the things i recommend is when you're delivering the change of rate to are turning customer. You can offer them to lock in a longer term package for example to have you on retainer so say for example you say hey. My hourly rate is now a hundred dollars. is usually increased my rates every twelve to eighteen months. But if you'd like you can lock in this rate for the next two years if you want to. But you'll need to commit to a certain amount of hours on retainer month so you might say i need to have ten hours on retainer every month. That means a thousand dollars every month. That means a twenty four thousand dollars for thirty two years and this can just be a retainer Four any kind of work that they need to do Maintenance work update work and then anything outside the retaining hours you can charge them early at the current rate and people that like to work with you would like to lock in a great rate that they can have and have predictable pricing for the next couple years. This could be done in a very low pressure just by the way. Here's something that i offer and you'll be surprised. How many of your customers. We'll take you up on it. Because people like to save money. People liked to lock in a discount more on today's cuny wednesday but before that. Let me love to sponsor support for today.

Twelve hundred forty five dollars and it was like oh. I looked to where it was from the hamanaka jason.

It was now to control So you have really really interesting to see how the market has changed much in such a short period of time. Of course what we've now got is last. Wakes cattle is a very big one. It's up twenty two point four seven percent. Now that's that's the biggest bullish candle that we have had Jays for a very long time. I'm enclosing up that far that i think that is the The largest single weekly candle grain a since backing limbs that Since back in one of the twenty twenty two point. Five three yeah. I really think that was the biggest candles since back. I'm trying to find them The twelfth of february two thousand eighteen the biggest closing margin there that was twenty eight point nine percent but this shot is looking something special. Now i'm truly through all time highs. We are well and truly through twenty thousand and we could well and truly go a lot higher and tight. That wrong downside. The that may saying she buy bitcoin. What i take it would. Would you take it as is that. I believe we will move higher in time. I also believe that. We'll get some vicious pullbacks This is up. This is a very very volatile market. So be prepared. It's those pullback settle for opportunity for us it is. of course the trendies up the trendy. Strong and i'm loving it. Twenty three thousand seven hundred and sixty dollars. I want to say that again. Twenty three thousand seven hundred and sixty dollars for bitcoin.

Didn't know what was ally they. Id four dollars thirty two. You could buy which just seems. I mean not i mean you very likely attacks within twelve months old Theory that's a deal so just just amazing to say it is still strong your own the weekly just not having that same gusto as bitcoin. Six hundred and forty three dollars. Rotten now ex up as fifty six point four cents up one point seven percent couple of big guys loss weight twenty percent and what currently. It's a bit of a dead dog machado. Unlock it really. That much loss wakes kennel declaw fight. Sent a pretty wild ryan range on exa play from the heart of the lilama.

"About it Elizabeth Warren her tax plan is a pretty good one you know I I think you were alluding to the fact that it might be crazy but I I don't know really listen to this democratic presidential candid Elizabeth Warren is unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multi millionaires above one hundred percent now is that their fair share if you just say no more than everything they have that's not their fair share now some from other people too and give it to you I think we have to take money from poor people to give to billionaires for them to pay in taxes that's my proposal so potential tax rates over one hundred percent could result from the combination of tax increases cheese proposing she wants to return the top income tax rate to thirty nine point six from thirty seven percent now then she wants to impose a new fifty wells fourteen point eight percent it's almost fifteen percent tax for social security wow a new one now wow amazing and then that's one of those it never and now if you at some point for you know who make over a certain amount of money is that the if they stop taking it from you during the year because they've taken everything they can write if there's an actor a hundred thousand dollars yes axed out and it would be maxed out anymore so just fifteen percent the whole year cool is not wonderful and it would add an annual tax of up to six percent on accumulated wealth and require rich investors to pay capital gains taxes at the same rate as income tax so I'd be another thirty nine point six percent on your capital gains which is a double tax because you've already paid tax on the income right but other than that so if you if you take a billionaire with a thousand dollar investment horns is six percent return or sixty Bucks they receive a capital gain dividend or interest if all of Warren's taxes are implemented he could fifty eight point two percent of that for thirty five dollars in federal tax plus his entire investment would encourage six percent wealth tax that's at least six sixty dollars then the result is a tax is high is nineteen the five dollars on income of sixty dollars for a combined tax rate of a hundred and fifty eight percent now is that it is funny we've tried many times to pin down the left on what the fair share number is yes I don't think I've even ever heard them get to one fifty eight before I feel like once a year here and save their territory yeah fair right everything you earn plus another half of what you learn plus a little more and I'm not sure where that comes from but well I mean you told your it out okay a lot of this comes from to her wealth tax which is plainly unconstitutional was discussed for a very long time there's a reason why they needed the sixteenth amendment to have an income tax in the first place and specifically did not allow for things like the wealth tax when it occurred but whatever we just gonna ignore the constitution or second again I'm Michael Bloomberg I'm setting fire to the constitution and I want to be your president analysts have warned as certainly as already blaze that path so but you know when you start taking money that's already been earned and as you point out already been taxed then it goes into investments gets taxed again and it is sitting in your bank account and then it gets taxed again I would you start taxing the same dollar this too many times you can get over a hundred percent right yeah because now you've taxes three times at least and when they spend it you're taxing it again right unbelievable zinc unbelievable how much they will do and if you die they're gonna tax it again they're gonna take half of what you've accumulated and you've already paid taxes on all that now in some cases triple taxes on all of that it's it's hard to know whether it doesn't feel like to me as a person who's grown up here in the United States that something like this could be possible that right person who knows it was advocating things like this in trying to vilify people for being successful in this country could possibly win the election but we rushed off yeah I don't know especially when it gets to me anything can happen with the media behind the other side anything.

"IRS and private tax prep companies prevents Americans from filing directly online with the IRS? And that rule could become permanent lawmakers on both sides of the aisle trying to pass the so-called tax payer I act which would permanently bar the IRS from creating a free electronic tax filing system. Rachel Martin talked with propublica. Reporter Justin Elliott about why this Bill is needed one of the things this Bill does is it caught. If is an existing agreement between the IRS and the private tax prep industry so companies like the maker of turbo tax and one of things that agreements. Says is that the IRS will never create essentially its own version of turbo tax the IRS won't essentially compete with the industry. So what that means is that many Americans will have to continue paying fifty or sixty dollars to use turbo tax HR block instead of having the central government option to file their taxes. So this has gotten bipartisan agreement. Yeah. I mean, it's it's a longstanding program, and it's also something that the industry has been lobbying for for a long time. So h and R Block and into it had been pushing for this for years, and you know, they do offer a free option if you make below a certain income threshold, but very few people end up actually finding that. And a lot of people end up using the paid version. So essentially this Bill would continue this deal between the industry under which the industry offers this free option, but the IRS agrees to never create its own version of these tax prep services. It's essentially that means Americans have fewer. Choices. Exactly. And you know, one of the remarkable things that happened is after we wrote about this. I people from other countries were sending tweets to me on Twitter saying that in Germany and Finland and other places doing their taxes took like five minutes because the government actually provide their forms pre filled out because taxations the has their salary data. So is it safe to assume that there was just a lot of lobbying on the part of companies that get paid when consumers come in and say, these are too complicated for me to do can you? Yeah. I mean, just our block and to as are the two biggest together they spent over six million dollars lobbying on issues, including this one last year have been pushing for this to make it into law for many years now and the current Bill contains a lot of other provisions, including some that are supported by consumer advocates. And I think that's one of the reasons is now getting partisan support and might might make into law, but consumer advocates. I do support this consumer advocates oppose this provision. But there's other totally unrelated provision in the Bill that, you know, speak to the IRS debt collection practices, for example, that consumer advocates have supported so, you know, that's one of the reasons I'm told that that this bills getting bipartisan support in congress just an with Prokopcuka.
