Too Many Screens (MM #3893)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason, I realized that sometimes I live in kind of a parallel universe to most people, because I'm on multiple screens almost all the time. In front of me right now, in my main computer set up two monitors, I've got my iPad and my iPhone and we'll always have a spare computer on the side just in case I need to pop it up and do something else with it. But every now and again, you run into having too many screens in front of you. Last night for me an example we were watching the ball state football game on the big screen. Plus, I had a Google chat going on on one computer. I was referencing some music files on another computer and of course my phone going off having to do some text messages there. And well, I think I actually left the iPad upstairs for a change. If I had a way to be able to have kind of like a circular monitor system, where I could always be surrounded by monitors, and that way I just go for monitored monitor. I could do multiple things on one computer, and besides, can one computer handle all that I needed to do? The answer is really no, because sometimes you can't do everything all at once, even though I try. First world problems I know, but I'll tell you what, every now and again, too many screens. And I've got friends who say, two screens is one too many.

Why Is Kyle Rittenhouse Charged With First-Degree Murder?

"Let me ask you, I never understood this and quite honestly, we did a Kyle rittenhouse story 6 months ago talking about how I don't understand how these charges can be. What is he charged with first degree murder? That's right, two counts. How is that possible? It's an altercation. I mean, first degree murder is where you're like, I'm going to murder this person and go to their home with, you know, not some sort of bar fight going wrong. Yeah, so you're right, actually, that would be what you're talking about would potentially be either voluntary manslaughter. Yeah, that's what I never understood about this. War second degree murder because it was more indiscriminate. What they're saying is that the prosecution's argument is, is that Kyle rittenhouse brought his gun because he intended to murder these VLM protesters and that he had a vengeful intent. Now, what's interesting to me is that the prosecution just a few minutes ago before I came on the show, just rested in this case after about a week and a half of testimony. They did not present a single shred of evidence. The Kyle rittenhouse showed up with intend to hurt anyone. But this is what I can understand is that the judge, the pretrial arguments because this is just you have months to submit, you know, motions to dismiss. You're trying to tell me no one looked at this and say, wait a second. You're charging a guy who got in an altercation was, by the way, the guy that Kyle rittenhouse killed in self defense was like a child rapist or something, right? He was like a child pedophile or something? Is that right? Multiple count child rapists and honestly the I'm not saying he deserves to die because of it, but let's just details of those Kate that case if anyone wants to see it, it's absolutely. This is not Gandhi, okay? What is actually relevant? What's actually relevant to this is that he had just been released from a hospital where he was being held on a psychiatric hold, and we're told that he's been on and off anti psychotic medication, including seroquel. If anybody knows anyone who's been on that spectrum or takes that type of medication, this is very, very powerful medication. I think he killed him, right? He's dead? Is that right? He's dead, yes. Okay. But throughout this whole process, I failed to understand how this could possibly be presented in premeditated terms. And I thought to myself, maybe they have text messages of Kyle saying something with intent, maybe they have there's no such evidence,

Change Your Voicemail (MM #3872)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason, if you've been online anytime in the last few days, you've probably seen the stories on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, even TikTok, telling you that if you're lost somewhere out on a hike, you should change your voicemail to give your coordinates just in case your battery goes dead and it'll help you be found. Of course, that's misinformation. A Colorado search and rescue team has responded to this viral social media post and says, don't do that at all. If you're lost somewhere in the back country, you're probably not going to have cell phone service anyway. So you're not going to be able to change your voicemail message. What you should do is try to text 9-1-1, texting uses less battery life as well as a better chance of getting that to go through via the cell when you're in a non service area. If you're out and about and you are doing some hiking and somewhere and get lost or get stranded or something happens, use text messages, turn off all your other apps and keep your cell phone warm to conserve battery life. It's kind of scary to think about these things, but with what's been going on in our world over the course of the last few years. It's always good to be safe better than sorry.

Is Biden Secretly Flying Undocumented Border Migrants to Other Areas of the U.S.?

"Got a text message on the my pillow text line, several months ago, I came into SDF. I think that's Louisville about 1130 p.m.. I went over to the general aviation side to get my car. There were two tour buses. One of the guys who worked there told me there was a charted chartered 7 37 coming in just after midnight with resettlement undocumented people from the border to be bused out to undisclosed locations. He said it was the second or third such flight in the past two weeks. I called a prominent local TV news station reported what I'd seen and heard, they politely said thanks and hung up. No action, no interest, in any action, or exposing these flights. I suspect they already knew and knew to be quiet. These illegals have to be gone somewhere. And the country is changing.

Minister Jeremy Story Was Arrested for Disorderly Conduct at a School Board Meeting

"Welcome. I have an important story to share with you very important. A number of years ago, I got to meet a friend, Jeremy story here in New York City. He's now a minister in the Austin, Texas area. He wrote me about something that's going on there with regard to school boards. As you know, this stuff lights me up infuriates me sickens me as an American, what is happening. And so I thought, let's get Jeremy on to talk about it. So Jeremy welcome. Thank you for having me today Eric. I appreciate it. Well, I'm glad that you wrote to me. So tell us the story. I mean, the short version is is that I was arrested by a school board unlawfully in order to silence me from speaking. Today, nationally, we hear stories about violent parents and the Biden administration coming against them. But in actuality, there's also another side of that story. And I am that story, as well as another gentleman in our district who was an army captain who was arrested as well. Basically what we were speaking out against Eric was, and what I was speaking out against was I'd been I'd seen how our superintendent was hired in June by a violation of the Texas open meetings act, which means that the several of the board members coordinated behind the scenes to hire the superintendent, which is a fence that carries prison time. And because I spoke out on that, then I was contacted by a lady who explained to me that she had been assaulted by the superintendent. She had been she was pregnant with his child, and he had tried to assault her when she refused to have an abortion. Because he was wanting her to cover up his illicit affair with this woman. And so when she wouldn't do that, he went over to her house and according to her assaulted her. He threatened her via text message prior that he was going to take care of the child if she wouldn't take care of it. And then when she tried to go to the school board to get some help, two school board members tried to help her, the other 5 who had voted for the superintendent ignored her in a couple of them actually notified the superintendent, which then precipitated the assault the

Governor DeSantis Floats Florida Law Against Vaccine-Related Firings

"I got a text message today on the MyPillow text line. Saying that a dear friend of the texture is about to lose his job as an airline pilot. He's worked as an airline pilot for this company for 24 years. And he's devastated. For whatever reason, his reason, his choice, not to get vaccinated. He's out. He's got to sell his house. They got to pull their kids out of the school. The kids love, and they got to move out of state. They're devastated. You take away a man's livelihood. You take away everything. Governor desantis, one of the great American governors stood up and said, this coercive tactic forcing people to make these kinds of choices, whether they get to work in their occupation and get vaccinated and prove it or get fired as governor desantis put it this coercion is wrong. Totally wrong. I think it's destroying trust in public health to the extent that there was still trust leftover after all the stuff that's been done. But I think it's really, really negative. And I think you're gonna end up driving people away, sure are the more the government says and private entity say you must be vaccinated. You can't make the distinguishing you can't try to draw that line in the Senate and say, well, the government shouldn't do it, but businesses can. We're either gonna fire people over a personal medical decision or we're not.

But of course, the bad news, you're going to start getting more and more spam, text messages. I mentioned this like a year ago where I noticed an uptick in them and now they're just getting crazy. On average one or two a day I'm getting in these spam text messages, and sure there are some ways to hide them on my iPhone, but of course I've got all my calls coming into not only my iPhone, but my iPads, and it just becomes a hassle in the text message world. I understand why these scammers are doing it because it's harder to track them down through a text message than is necessarily. There are so many ways you can text people. I get texts from email addresses, not from phone numbers. It's a problem that I don't know will ever go away. I think it's only going to get worse. It just transfers from whether it be a phone call to a text message to whatever the next thing is. Yes, it's annoying, and I wish they'd go away, but at least I'm not gullible.

"text messages" Discussed on Behind The Numbers

"Out to me. You'll find me on linked in facebook and twitter. Love to hear from you. So have you ever wondered when you're working with your bank for example and they send you a text message to authenticate your identification. What's going on behind the scenes of that text message today. We're gonna find out. And i'm pleased to welcome paul rupert. Who's the ceo of global point. View paul welcome to behind. The numbers did great to be here. Thanks very much for the invitation. The opportunity to have a conversation with you and your years this. Yeah my pleasure. Why don't you tell the audience a little bit about who you are. And then we'll dive in sure so i've been involved in the telecommunications business the mobile telecommunications business for a little over two decades i was able to get involved in it early on and helped launch one of the first. Gsm operator is in north. America which is now known as. At and t. And held a number of multidisciplinary roles including sea level roles. Both in fortune one hundred companies like. At but also private equity owned enterprises and even ranked cuckold startups building. Them out to building one out. Two billion dollar valuation all in the context of moving text messages so sms. As you just talked about in terms of how all this works can be kintu. Who builds the roads and who delivers the packages. And i've been involved in companies. That do both gotcha and one of the terms that i know. We're probably going to touch on. We probably should just define it. Right now is as a concept called. Cps communication platform as a service. What else do we need to know about that. Acronym soc- past is essentially a blending of the different types of platforms in which human beings all utilize to communicate digitally electronically via telecommunications and that includes Obviously the most prevalent is voice that we all have been using for century. Plus but now emerging relative to sms or text messaging and those recently obviously in the context of what we're doing right now is the use of video but also the use of direct connections with messaging applications such as whatsapp or line. Orca cal or wishing or fiber etc apple business. Chattan other one As well as email and now in emerging technology relative to artificial intelligence and machine learning being applied to what are called chat bots so see past essentially blends in all these different functionalities and platforms in which people choose to communicate with customers. they're friends etc As as they wish if you will yeah thank you for that. So companies are always trying to find ways to communicate with their audience and their their customers. Right ball where does the text message fit into that whole realm of communicating with customers. I'm a little bias. But i would say that a text messaging is past present and future relative to the engagement of n consumers or customers both on a consumer basis as well as on an enterprise base. And it's just going to become more prevalent now even have machine to machine tut messaging that occurs. So it's essentially the means in which as i say a customer. The company can retail to their consumers and give an amazing amount of flexibility as to how that consumer wants to engage with the customer. It all depends on the use case. But let's say for example. If you've got a warranty issue relative to your mac you might want to send them an email or you might want to send them a or mega telephone call or you can also use a text messaging to be glued gauge and by utilizing text messaging. It frees up the conversation and the resolution of you as a trouble. Ticket in the sensitive becomes a synchronous meeting. It's not me waiting for somebody to be freed up on the customer care side and then being able to present a problem that then gets addressed by a customer care representative who then may pass you on to technical representative which could last hours and instead you can send that text message in the same context of i've got a problem with and computers can actually the artificial intelligence of can actually determine your sentiment why you might actually be sending that text message and then it also will be addressed by customer. Care rep In the time allotted so you might send that text at six in the morning and he might get an answer six in the evening to be able to address that instead of you burning up your time and wasting your time for that interaction in eight. More synchronous motors. I call it yeah interesting. So there's there's the trade off there of the potential of reaching somebody immediately but we all know how that usually works when you get involved in any kind of a customer service loop but if you're dealing with the problem that you as the consumer feel is more urgent. Does that lag in time. The timeliness of the respond patchy determine again not only in the context of the criticality of the message and the type of use case so specifically in your example if you are engaging eight banking transaction and there is a a a charge allocated to your count and you want to be able to get that result immediately that would have a higher priority of engagement by the customer. Care rep or the customer care call center then if you were just making it inquiring about your ipod your ear pots and having an issue relative to after you throw them in the washer inadvertently in relative to your warranty. So there's a hierarchy in terms of the types of engagements. But as i mentioned earlier the other side of this the back end of it is the additional digitalization and automation of how to be able to address. Innocent customer care setting and they're even knock on effects for the customer care call center because call centers have about one hundred percent turnover about every three to four months according to those who are active in space. I've consulted to a couple of call center providers and so this kind of a synchronous activity alleviate some of the pressure on the call center representatives and they feel more satisfied in their job and they have a higher degree of performance in their job and they tend to stay on longer so there are a lot of secondary or knock on effects that are benefiting from the use of text messaging as an engagement tool. That's good stuff. So let's address that question that i alluded to in the opening if you don't mind paul. So when we're working. When i'm working with the bank and it sends me that text message asking me to enter. You know five or six digits to authenticate that. I'm really legit. What's going.

"When he is the platform. Anyone amazing by way. Thank you but i mean part of the beauty. I think in what it is we do. Is we take something. That's very complicated. In terms of sending broadcasts sms In megan elegance in simple in very approachable for users. I mean our on boarding typically takes about five minutes writer ten minutes to show somebody how to use the platform to the best of their ability. And you know there's always logistical things that we deal with but i think You know one of the one of the most encouraging things we've seen most recently that the telecom carriers notably t mobile and at t. have asked the entire messaging ecosystem to move to a system more aligned with what it is that we do at subtext which is sending a registered traffic via ten deals as opposed to say sending spammy unregistered on opted traffic the shady short codes or toll free numbers or something like that. So there's a big shift in the industry right now to clean up messaging operate. More like subtexts does Which is you know. Certainly great thing for us and what about the filters like seemed like it seemed clear that one of my text messages didn't go through to everyone are they like are they scanning like looking for stamina words or anything like that yeah. It's it's usually. it's typically not even spammy words. I mean there there are certain phrases. I mean these are. These are big neural networks. That any of the any of the carriers typically used to determine you know what is a spam message. I think in the instance of you sending your message. That would have gotten filtered. The highest likelihood is because it's a really small audience. We don't preregister that traffic right. So you know we have a larger client. If we have someone who's going to be sending a hundred thousand plus messages given month we actually take all that traffic directly to the carriers ahead of time we say. Hey look this is. One hundred percent opted in traffic. Here's the businesses that are associated with sending this messaging. Give us the green light to make sure that we don't have any of this filtered so while we don't control it one hundred percent because you know it's up to the individual cell carriers to determine what messages get delivered. I can tell you that we deliver messaging in over ninety nine point nine nine nine percent..

"Only log on for one hour a day and maybe you send out like one or two text messages that are broadcast all and then you spend the rest of that. Our just responding to individual Text messages until that our runs up. And then you just stop and then don't log into the next day right like it's not like you're having to it's not like super highly polished content or anything like that and that's like selling absolutely. I mean we try make we try. Make the barrier to communication really really loud vite an end. I think that's one of the interesting. Things is because people are coming to a platform like this to create a more personal intimate connection with a host ride. You know you're not you're not coming ear for a two thousand word. Think peas or something like that. I mean you wanna be have this conversation you wanna be able to get information delivered to you like a really Sort of palatable. Shorts easily consumed way So you're absolutely right. I mean it really really simple log in. It's simple to be able to draft individual tax in that text is going to be a prompt. And you're getting a lot of responses. It's really easy to just spend thirty minutes in the platform. Getting back to people on one event to move on with your day needed doesn't require a tremendous amount of research. It doesn't require a tremendous amount of art. There's no coding or anything like that. It's really you putting your personality in your voice and your knowledge on display in a way that is really simple for people to consume. And i think if you look at we look at all the time right in terms of like time spent and the percentage of people that are seeing your message in the open rate on our platform is ninety two percents right so if it takes ten minutes to draft send attacks to all of your subscribers in ninety two percent of subscribers. Open it via sms hottest that our ally compared to spending hours and hours and hours to create a email newsletter to send your subscriber base to only have maybe thirty forty forty five percent of those subscribers. Read it especially if they don't have the ability to respond to what it is that they strike up a conversation with you. So i i think there's i think there's some really interesting. Roi metrics Well and so you built it on. Sms text messages which is great because it's a decentralized distribution that works every on every single mobile phone so it's great in the same way that email is great that is decentralized so nobody controls it I know like bad..

"You have some inroads with like these newspaper reporters and stuff like that. What's your strategy for getting in the door and getting people test out this this product. Yeah i mean for us. We've really i think one of the big differences between the approach taken and maybe the approach sub stack has taken that. We've been working a lot. More at sort of the enterprise media company level In order to create partnerships with the parent company and a new explorer like various different use cases of that umbrella. So you know we might work with somebody like buzzfeed on the commerce side. We might work with some of their journalists at buzzfeed news and and we have to do some really compelling audience engagement campaigns on the platform. We might do event based campaigns with a different team at the organization. So that's sort of that's kind of the tax that we take it. Although we certainly work with you know a several individual journalists who have paid campaigns on the platform that really similar to sub stack. But yeah i mean we try we try and go out and find people that we think really interesting that our passionate and engaging in a university different voice that are covering in area that hasn't really passionate fanbase in. We hope they decide to join us on the platform. 'cause it's really telling us about a lot of fun. What are some of your favorite use cases. Both from kind of larger enterprise accounts and individual craters. What are some of the things you love the site when you're going to a or some other thing where you have to present in front of people. This is how people are using subjects. That a really cool way. Yeah i mean. There's a time. I always tend to this me but i i always tend to love the use cases that draw the audience into to use one that draws the audience into the experience allows them to participate. So i think of some of the work that we've done recently with vanity fair associated with their little goldman podcast. Which is you know in amazing podcasts. They do is related to lady to award season and everything else that comes along with it. But i mean they have this hugely passionate dedicated listener base in. They're constantly reaching out there constantly taking questions or constantly engage with people in the platform. And it's just it's so encouraging to see because the the health of these conversations that candor of these conversations tenor of them. I mean they're using the platform and really exemplary way to both humanize the media company and the individuals that hosts the podcasts But also to make the content and comfortable life for listeners. In a way that you know it would be really difficult for for that to come to life any other way and then what are they. What are they doing. They're asking like who should win. Best picture and then reading those text messages on the podcast. Or like yeah. I mean. they're they're they're pulling users. They're doing a live. Qna when award season is coming up there even giving sort of snippets and insights into what's going to be on the next episode. They're asking for feedback related to the latest episode. That they just put out there. So they've created this. Really interesting participatory. Loop above audience feedback participation engagements interim point earlier. I mean it's it's helping them sort of evolve the product that they have the audio product that So what about the creator. Side of interest in any like individual raters were using it and cool ways. Yeah i mean we gave a ton. So i'm thinking through in artist that we work with from sony. Such a band Really really well like band. Billy engaging just an interesting folks and they're sharing out Photos from their everyday lives and sort of the behind the scenes for them..

It's ryan and really passionate fanbase that given the opportunity with love to be able to strike up a one on one conversation with any of these artists. But we always tell people that you know. It's important to give the audience the understanding that you are in fact listening to them that you're reading the responses that are coming in even if you're not getting backed each person individually if you're getting a lot of the same question if you you're getting some really insightful. Questions we find that it's really effective a use case to santa broadcasts after the audience and say i'm hearing from a ton of you that you have questions around. Abc let me go ahead and address us right and you know. It's an effective way to address the group and scale while still indicating that you know you're listening and you're engaging with people but you know you you can do it both ways.

It's it's matthew texting me about this topic that ease exceedingly knowledgeable on and he's answering my questions. That personal touch can go really really long way and we always tell we tell her if you respond to individuals subscriber one on one. You've probably got us driver for less. I mean people appreciate why think like you may disagree with me but i think the one of the best applications of this is crowd sourcing for some kind of broadcast medium. Like podcast or youtube like youtubers already do regular what they call. Qna's where they blast out there. Their twitter followers am shooting acuna video. What questions do you have for me. These are super popular videos. I've definitely sat through them. And then they'll just basically answer questions one by one.

"And you're going to go so for us. It should remove every conceivable barrier to entry to get people up to and the all the other version is a revenue share where creators like. This is how i want to actually monetize. My content is offer the ability to text message with my paying subscribers. What's the kind of on boarding. Processes is the creator saying texas phone number and then the text then it will send them an automatic prompt where they can click on a link and then entered their payment information. Or what's that kind of onboard lee process of like yet. Now you you nailed the you nailed it. So it's as simple as sharing the phone number so each one of our hosts is a given an individual at local phone. Number people can tax that number And if you text into it and you're not a subscriber we bounce you back you are l. You gotta the url you in her all the requisite information so a credit card zip code phone number name everything that we need to collect in order to be able to process the payment and then you know assuming everything goes through your opted in to see those messages and we just bill on sort of a subscription base so i kind of akin to two sub stack in that sense except with bilateral communication Probably lower barrier to entry in terms of content creation And really i think interesting unique Engagement in in terms of in terms of the media. So let's talk about the practical application. Because i think a lot of people when they hear about this day -ssume that the content creator has to be constantly responding the people's tax. And so they think it's it's not a fair value exchange like if someone's paying four dollars a month should i have to respond to every text. Message say cindy you could see where that that could add up to a lot of time. That's worth a hell of a lot more than four dollars a month but based on my actually had a previous podcast interview for this podcast with someone who is using this platform really successfully. It's not like that kind of one to one communication even though it is protected. You're you're exactly right. I mean it certainly doesn't have to be. I mean it can be. It can be his intimate reconvened as scalable as you like to be able to make it And you know. Certainly i mean we outfit Any of our hosts with tools to be able to respond to people. Wanna wanna really quick. And seamless way and so if that's refunding templates that's sharing media if that's creating addressable audiences within the platform based on what people have identified as their affinities so you can send better tailored messaging to larger groups. Those are all things you can do. But the truth of the matter is that there's no expectation at every single individual message. Be responded to one on one with us in.

"We really kind of took stock of the products that we have in the portfolio You know we. We looked at it sort of where we had the most traction in if we were going to focus our efforts on one where we have the best chance of hitting a home run. It was pretty clear that subtext was going to be that product so me in a co-founders of the original members of the group became the senior leadership team for subtexts That's where we've been spending the you know all of our time for the best It's a two years almost so they're two different versions of subtexts. There's one that's free to the end user and the content creator is shouldering the cost and then there's another that's like a that costs money to the end user and there's a revenue share. What's the difference between those two options. Yes i mean. The difference is really predicated on what the what the goal of the of the hostess here so our our creator of the media companies with the artist so we work with So for the free option. Typically the goal is either to facilitate broad engagement with the general public right so anybody can sign out to the tax messages. You want to be the strike of a dialogue with your biggest fans and sort of. Give them inside her access to use creator And you know that's a very straightforward implementation in a lot of instances though we have especially in the media's face we have clients using this as sort of a supplement to their existing digital subscription products as a means of activating subscribers Hopefully doing away with the sort of zombie subscribers status in having a value evaluated right. I mean it's really compelling way to be able to engage with your readers in also to be able to generate feedback. Right i mean to to be able to open up a dial folks think we'd seen we've been doing this for a long time. I mean we sent over three billion messages. We've got you know almost nine thousand subscribers on the platform at this point and you're one of the things that we've seen on the macro level especially in terms of business kpi's inside we've been able to reduce subscriber. Churn by thirty five or forty percents When someone is subtext subscriber associated with an existing digital subscription product which most media companies is very meaningful measure. Yeah so like. If there's a newspaper that charges fifteen dollars a month for access to their digital products they can stick can send out this announcement say like. Hey here's an additional benefit. We have this crack you know sports reporter and he's participating on this text messaging and here's how to activate it so that it's connected to your subscription right. How hard is that It's super simple. I mean it literally. It's literally providing the phone number. And in some instances verifying the phone number but in in a lot of in a lot of use cases that we have we actually integrate directly into the digital subscription platform for client. So you know you basically enter your phone number. You check a box. That says hey. I want to receive updates on the new york knicks in the rangers in the islanders. You hit confirm and then we use our api to opt you into these subscriptions for each one of those contacts channels..

"A lot of fun as well and so was subtexts. You said like you wanted to develop a way for people to have kind of are these creators to have unfettered access to their fans. It isn't controlled by an algorithm. What you settled on was sms text messages. Basically a really easy way for fans to throw out a phone number or your l. and people to sign up for lists and be able to exchange text messages with them So let's talk about that like so do i. When did you start building this product. So i think the product It's current implementation is about two and a half years old and originally it was very lightweight right like it was literally just getting like a burner phone or something like that sending out and and allowing like. I don't know something something very simple. No you know are terrible secret yet. So are yeah. So the so the imitation of the product. I mean when. I say we build. Mvp's build mvp right. So in this instance. We wanted to test sms. We wanted to test that level of engagement between a journalist in our first instance in their audience so we literally built a splash. Page where someone could era phone number. We found in amazing journalist. Out in san francisco named joe eskenazi. Who covered the intersection of attack in politics. In san francisco for michigan. Mogul emmy said. Hey joe We got this crazy idea. Do you wanna piloted with us. And he was against sounds crazy. But let's give it a shot so you know we put together the slash paid. We said look. This is what joe is going to be reporting on. You can expect him to send this many messages. Any given day are you and ton of people sign up really quickly so And that would just go into a spreadsheet or something like that hundred percent was going into a spreadsheet. We added joe to our free instance of slack. Joe win slack us the message that he wanted to send to all the subscribers that day.

"Hello i'm simon owen. And you're listening to the business of content a podcast about how publishers create distribute and monetize digital content. And this week's episode we're talking about content creators who sell subscriptions that allow their audience to send and receive text messages from them. Most subscription strategies have a pretty straightforward value exchange in exchange for a monthly payment. The subscriber gets access to premium content. That's locked behind some kind of paywall. But what if you want to keep all your best content in front of the payroll. What could you still offer to your audience to make a monthly subscription payment worth the price of admission thousands of content creators have turned to platforms like subtext. A tool that allows them to exchange text messages with their fans. Craters can either send mass texts out to their audience or get into individual conversations with subscribers for this episode. I spoke to subtext ceo. mike donahue. We talked about how his team developed the application and the different ways creators use it to generate revenue before we jump into the interview. I wanna talk briefly about this podcast. Some of you may have noticed that this is the first episode. Iv put out since may. But that doesn't mean i took the summer off. I spent the last several months conducting new interviews and have at least a half dozen ready to go. I also converted several episodes into long form articles.

Sin but yet has lots of different variations to that. Yeah i think so that the k. Takeaway away here is like just thinking about some of the things that we've talked about now. Is that number one. If someone's injured message send them one back pretty quick because time is of the essence people do expect a bit of a longer term email because emails get buried but checks messaging is the here now and secondly senator message cities appropriate to the person absolutely. We want or response. We don't want to be hate. Just f- la same way. We've just launched this property and seems probably thinking will okay. I could have seen that elsewhere. You really just wasted that message. Send a text that invokes a response already evokes an action that you want the the puzzle to take. I'm just thinking to with the market. Sort of not going to say it's cooling but there's been a slight cooling and less buys around might be an undefeated campaign might be really good like the people that had just missed out at auction when you bring you next listing on like.

I guess leading on from that is it's really hard sometimes to have an audit trail particularly when people check seeing from fines. Or let's just say you get a new fine. I cloud or something like that. All of you checks. Messaging history goes on a ni- someway which ex messaging history goes. How can you keep your history and perhaps integrated into your crm system. Otherwise for them to talk to each other.

We're trying to set up partnerships with all the major playas in real estate across the south side in the property management side not limited to inspection so auction software management platforms.
