"How does a little holiday in the Scottish highlands sound lovely? Even during this lockdown plenty of people thought so and reserve properties for rent on the global travel website booking dot com in fact so many tourists continue to putter about the Scottish countryside that it alarmed the locals like rural residents all over they feared travelers might bring Kobe. Nineteen with them at overwhelmed. Small hospitals and so in Blackford. The areas presumably exasperated member of parliament asked booking dot com to quit offering reservations for the bucolic countryside. Finally last week the giant travel company complied. Now you can't get a reservation at a cottage in the Scottish highlands until may ninth or later at least not on booking dot com so reports the Scottish newspaper the National. So why am I telling you this? Little story well because it offers a small taste of the big problems facing the travel industry like so many other industries. Covert nineteen is upended everyone in the travel business from tiny. Bnb's to the largest players that's especially true of booking dot coms biggest rival expedia travel and its parent company. Expedia group in addition to owning. Its namesake reservation site. Expedia group owns other household. Names including travelocity ORBITZ HOTELS DOT COM B. R. B. O. And home away just to name a few the multibillion dollar travel conglomerate however is far less steady than it had appeared to be back in December it ousted. Ceo REPORTEDLY DUE TO DISAGREEMENTS WITH CHAIRMAN. Buried diller and the board over Corporate Strategy Diller who also runs entertainment giant. I A C took over day to day responsibilities along with board vice-chair Peter Kern in February prior to the couvert nineteen onslaught in the US. The company announced what it called disappointing twenty nineteen earnings. It announced plans to lay off three thousand people or about twelve percent of its workforce at the time diller called the company's Sclerotic in bloated sclerotic by the way means rigid or slow to change. Not exactly a compliment. He planned to streamline the business which he believed had become too large and complex by the end of February. The company had put plans in place to save three hundred to five hundred million expenses annually and then the virus which had already been wreaking havoc globally hit the US hard. The effect on the travel industry is beyond devastating the US Travel Association estimates losses of more than five hundred billion dollars in direct travel spending. That's nine times worse than the impact on the travel industry after nine eleven according to Forbes sadly the travel association predicts more than eight million. Us travel industry workers will have lost their jobs by the end of this month. And if the pandemic is devastating most businesses those with fragile foundations like expedia are scrambling to ensure they'll survive last week. Expedia received a promise of a rescue package to private equity firms Apollo global management and silverlake are buying a stake in the company for one point. Two billion dollars that alone however may not be enough to help it withstand the travel slump. So expedia is also borrowing another two billion dollars to give it more liquidity. The company says along with announcing the deal expedia also named Peter Kern as CEO observers say. Kern who has roots in private equity will be well suited to the moment meaning. He'll be comfortable cutting jobs and expenses. The big question of course is not just who will survive. But who will thrive after the pandemic crisis abates and investment in a travel business? Even at CEO prices could be seen as a positive sign. Long-term read Raymond a partner at Apollo Management said in a statement. Expedient is a world class company with an unparalleled collection of online travel brands. He added that the firm which will take a seat on expedience.

Marketing and Branding in a Voice-First World
"Have with me today. A Sanjiv n John of what Stone Technologies Welcome. Gentlemen on Yes so you guys did a talk earlier today about marketing and branding and a voice I world. Can you talk a little bit about what you guys were explaining in that workshop? So in fact. I'm going to give the JOHNSONS. He was the one that was on the panel. I love it right so There were a number discussed The one of which of course was Discover ability that's top of mind in for most brands agencies marketers is how to. How do you get to the skill of the action in the first place? How do you make people aware of Discover ability on this platform system is still an area. That's very much influx in very much development I know I know that there are teams in Amazon and Google and in Bixby. That are working heavily in that space. Now that said there been some creative solutions around Addressing that that we're discussing the panel including Social Media Marketing to in social media pushes doing time events. For example the rain agency didn't interesting release with The Nike Sneaker Shoe drop that tied in with the halftime show of an NBA game. So you you had a very present call to action and you know the television was informing the home users to use their Alexa. I'm you can't get much more direct than that. Yeah I mean when you're talking about discover ability because that is something that people struggle with. It's just like any other marketing. You have to push it out. How would you suggest people do that on? Social Media Brealey when you're when you're doing on social media for example part of that is just letting somebody know you can now talk to? This brand. Alexa opened my brand right. Or Hey Google talk to my brand. But moreover you can target S- Certain user groups on on facebook you can look for hashtags on twitter You can do more targeted marketing or two people that are interested in more information about the Surface area that your skill touches on and I'll I'll use the term voice application to be a little bit more broad because you know every rightfully so every business us every brand would wants to have as much reaches as possible so they they wanted to be on every platform as possible so I think targeted Campaigns that focus on. Let's say for example. I'll just pull out one case in point. Let's say you have An Agency for balloon rides right then you would be targeting. People that have been searching for a balloon rides in a given area. Maybe you would. You would target like travelocity As a as a marketing platform. So you want to think about you. Know the keywords the demographic that would be likely to use your skill likely to be looking for your skill that makes sense. I mean how important is it for you to also teach these people how to use the scale how to interact with that? You're not only marketing. That hey we have a skill but how do you kind of Tell Them? What is the best way to use it right so he wanted to be as intuitive as possible. So you don't have to teach in the first place so keep the interaction Light quick and direct and deliver value quickly like for example One of the peace process of our platform involves coupon delivery. So Oh so you would engage the user with a set of very quick. Yes no pre qualifying questions to ascertain whether they are interested in the coupon you're offering and whether they're the right target audience but you don't want to Overdo it with a litany of QNA's you want to keep it down to like two or three questions than okay yes It sounds like you're interested in this. Please provide your phone number. And we'll send you a discount code and of course you want to make that Discounts worth it to that person to give up their phone number because of course. That's another piece of personal data so Of course you have your privacy statements. That's you're not going to be solid to third party But with the particular brand at that that's Phone is a phone numbers. Offered up to that particular brand can still use it to do additional reminders. We always in the space. We tend to think voice. I and often forget that it's not necessarily has to be boys exclusive so you can capture that initial data and then keep the conversation going on another platform so you you've got the phone number you then have SMS capabilities. Yeah I like that. You're saying it's not just voice I. It's voice exclusive. Because a lot of people do think I should just doing voice. It's really about integrating with every single thing you're right you want to meet the customer where they want to be met and so if they're coming to you with a on the voice platform certainly. That's where you meet them and you can use the voice platform for doing it with the voices good at like we found. It's good capturing numbers is spoken numbers. It's not very good at capturing spoken letters so even spelling an email address like the letters z could be mistaken for being often is My last name for example spelled I W Z is pronounced. Iwata's what do you think the likelihood of my spoken last name? We'll get transcribed correctly by the smart speaker. Can I don't care which far speaker you're now? The two of you both worked at Microsoft right. How did the tune of you knew? And why did you decide to create this company together so we met in two thousand one when I moved to Philly and we worked at Microsoft consulting services? We've known each other. I nearly twenty years and then we had I think as we went from being co workers to where we actually spent seven years making short films together and then I was between jobs and then John had this idea about doing something with Alexa and I had this sudden thing of going. You know I could go look for a job or you know when I turned seventy. I don't WanNa be sitting on my deathbed going. What if I tried and tried? And and we're we're we're at here. We are and John. John came along for the ride of Your Role. So when you decided to work together is one of you. More technical wants where the vision where the marketing. How do you guys work together? So John John is the so. He's in charge of the architecture. The platform where where we take in this. I'm the Shiny Talker guy you know and so I work. I work on that. We also have. We also have Patty Curry. She's helping us with marketing and strategic initiatives. We have a GUY UP IN BOSTON. Vic South Who's helping us with business? So I love it a little bit so you guys knew each other for a long time. He started this company. But you've been doing film work as well. What do you do? Where did that come into play? Does that have anything to do with the voice? If you're doing as well to well we a lot of the filmmaking. We did was actually around horror comedy and stuff like because we we always found whenever we tried to write a series script. Just started goofing off and so in comedy lights and that kind of Trent but honestly where I think the filmmaking came in with audio is one of the things John and as we started to we we were self taught and I taught myself how to do sound. John taught himself how to be a director photography and as we started getting into the in into working with film you know part of part of making a film is understanding how to tell a story and having a beginning middle and an end and when you think of conversation conversational design. It's the same thing you need to have a beginning a middle and an end and also as you're working with the film one of the biggest components it's actually more I believe it's about sixty to seventy percent of a film is the audio and so when you're making an audio application. There's a lot of crossover audio engineering of how do you? How do you get a person to feel like? They're part of this experience. How do you communicate is it? Are you know when you make your choices? Are you using the voice of the assistant? Are you choosing to use a human just using way files? What kind of you know? Maybe you're mixing some different audio in the background. So there's there's quite a bit of crossover when you really get down to it. Yeah there is an one of the things I love about this voice text base is. It's pulling in so many creatives my background's in dance originally and I do writing. People are writers. They're filmmakers. Why do you think that there is such a big pull of the creative space into this piece of technology more than others? I think everyone wants to live star Trek. Because let's get real. This is what we're starting to see. This is this is star trek this her being able to turn around to the computer and say turn the lights on. Turn the lights off. Phasers on stun right John. Yeah I actually used if this then that to set up an experience on On our speaker so that if I say you know red alert it blinks might Philips Hue Lights Red and and the Star Trek klaxons begin sounding. I mean yeah I agree. It's an interesting. I never thought about it that way. But that makes a Lotta Sense. So what advice do you have four brands? That are considering voice technology.

Low-Cost Airline JetBlue, Known for Service, Creates No-Frills Fare
"From wondering I'm David Brown. And this is business worse daily on November twenty second happy Friday friends. Oh the irony. Sometimes we have to wonder if branding execs big companies have any self awareness at all. Recently jet blue. The low cost airline with reputation for comfortable cabins great free Wifi and better snacks announced a new basic fair. You know the cheap fares that are so spartan they're borderline painful NFL. The move has been met mostly with disgust. One man commented on linked in that jetblue has quote finally sold. What's left of their sold? The devil many others has responded that the company has followed its competition in a race to the bottom and this is where close observers should be shaking their heads because just three months ons ago. JETBLUE launched a new ad campaign with the tagline. Just all right doesn't fly here The campaign was intended to call all attention to what ad age savelly called all. That's wrong with modern flying starring. The alright brothers fictional alter egos of the Wright brothers the ads. Poke Fun at Well pretty much every other airline. Take a listen while the brothers revolutionize the way we traveled all ever have different plans for the airline industry. And what's the least weekend. Let's do that. Let's just say communication wasn't really that thank me. It's the time we're in the air any other questions issues but this campaign could backfire in the wake of Jet Blues Latest move to offer its new basic blue fair. The airline's new low cost service will offer bargain basement prices for tickets that provide mostly bargain-basement amenities. Customers will either have to pay for seat assignments or wait until twenty twenty four hours before their flight to choose a seat for free. Blue basic tickets are non refundable and non transferrable even for frequent flyers. JETBLUE president president. Joanna Garrity argues that yet basic fair but it's a kinder gentler one unlike its rivals jet blue will still allow budget flyers. A full-size carry on but with a last-minute choices one has to wonder whether a suitcase will fit in overhead bin. The company argues that it has no choice but to offer no no frills fares in an email to the Washington Post jetblue spokesman Philip Stewart wrote with competitors now offering basic economy on many routes. We fly customer behavior. Hager's suggests our success is at risk if we do not disrupt this market by lowering fares without sacrificing the experience which raises two questions one. Is it really possible to offer a kinder gentler. no-frills ticket and to digest blue. Really have no choice if it is to continue to compete well to I. Jet Blue certainly hopes to convince flyers that it's new basic blue isn't as harsh as say spirit airlines which charges for everything from seat selection to a snack snack to the second. Well a convincing argument could be made in jet blues favor. According to Garrity online travel sites like expedia and travelocity acidy or pushing travelers to choose cheapest fares without considering the flying experience. And what those tickets provide or don't last year long before for this launch. She told investors that she hopes jet. Blues New Fares will attract those price conscious shoppers and that after reeling them in with cheap prices the experience of a flying jetblue would win them over presumably converting them into repeat customers but just how persuasive is that we have no choice argument travel travel industry analyst. Henry Heartfelt told The Washington Post that jetblue customers don't appear to be requesting the basic fares rather he says it seems to be a defensive offensive move one intended to reclaim market share and revenue now going to other Ikano class airlines but right after jetblue

Travelocity I guess there's I mean there's there must be a great business because there's like ten of these things and you know I have a I I'm I have a lot of experience traveling. and I really don't use these websites a lot if I'm buying if I'm getting a hotel room I'm more likely to use it if I'm getting a hotel because you know I use Expedia and I get Expedia points in the points add up after a while in that does sort of make a difference. now but if you have flights over one of these travel aggregators stand to be they become really difficult to change if something goes wrong I recommend. not using the sites I recommend getting flights you know at United dot com or a a dot com American Airlines or whatever and I recommend getting hotels through the hotel website because they generally give you the most flexibility to change or cancel once you buy off of Expedia you're kind of locked in and I've I've kind of found this out the hard way a long time ago so anyway how to buy clothes. you know I'm a little bit of a clothes horse in this all this wasn't always the case. hi my fashions for so you know military I think military guys have bad fashion sense is gonna come out and say it and I think Coast Guard guys in particular have really bad fashion sense I was I was on Facebook this about a month ago and it was a picture of some of my classmates from the Coast Guard academy there is four five in the picture and may had first all these called dad hats now if you don't know dad hats or the hats with a curved bill right the call him dad had sent a note they used to call before just hats. and they're wearing you know the the combo where you have the short sleeve T. shirt over the long sleeve T. shirt and the acid washed jeans and you know yeah I mean that was nineteen ninety four so was struck in nineteen ninety four and I'm I'm really fashion conscious eyes you know I I subscribe to a magazine called the rake which is an incredible magazine I. G. Q. G. Q. sucks so bad it is the worst magazine of all time I gave up on that garbage along kind of if you want if you want to read about fashion if you want to read about clothes and culture and not have to read all this political crap. then read the rake I am telling you this is a life hack and it's not that expensive it's like seventy two box you get six issues a year they're like books they're huge I mean it's it's amazing it's amazing anyway I buy nice stuff yeah I I have nice casual stuff I have nice stress stuff I have my shoes and the one thing that I have consistently found is that the nice stuff last for ever last a really long time. the shirts that I get the dress shirts I get of brand called eaten E. T. O. N.. and I bought a bunch of these shirts over the years and I've never had one way around they do not I've been doing I've been buying them for eight years and they just do not wear out their indestructible I mean typically what happens is I get fat and then I can't wear them and then I give them to my nephew yeah I can't wear the slim fit anymore but I these they just don't wear out I've been buying them for seven years none of the show I have nice shoes none of the shoes have ever worn out by the way. if you have a nice pair shoes. and you run through the soles then just don't throw out the shoes just getting resold in one of the great things in life. is to have a cobbler shoe repair guy that is good at repairing shoes I mean this is you know you'll pay if you have an expensive pair shoes you'll pay sixty or seventy Bucks to get them re sold and you can continue to wear the shoes for ten fifteen twenty years so it's really really a good deal some of my suits have worn now I've I've lost a couple of suits one way but there's a balance right so you don't want to spend too much money we want to get stuff that's an expensive but you don't want to get stuff that is so cheap that it won't last and I think the target here I think the target here is you want to get close that last for seven years. seven years is like one cycle in fashion after seven years is going to be out today anyway just for example like I have some suits they had very skinny lapels their flat front they have no coughs well guess what seven years later what's in big fat lapels.

Dot Com Slash Tech Talk Ziprecruiter the smartest way to hire so how how did a hotel room offers one hundred thirty seven dollars a night for two nights turn into three hundred and seventy three dollars and thirty eight cents. You guessed it hidden fees vs to travel. Websites are notorious for hooking you in with great offers only to see them. Balloon is something you didn't agree to in the first place which I'm guessing is because they just think you'll just say oh. I can't take it anymore and you'll surrender while in the interest of saving aggravation and time and perhaps becoming more savvy traveler. Here's some tips for what to look for when you visit these top travel sites. I'm Jefferson Graham. You're listening to talking tech. Let's begin with hot wire. You all know hot wire. It's site picks up unused hotel room inventory and sells it at a promise discount without telling you the exact name of the property before you book so I found a two nights stated downtown hotel in Seattle in one hundred and thirty seven dollars a night but then it grew to 373 because as hot wire tacked on ninety five dollars and thirty eight cents tax recovery and fee surcharge the explanation quote we retain our service fees fees as compensation in servicing your travel reservation and that's fine. If you really really really save money not here expedia this this is the dominant site for airline tickets and hotel rooms. It also owns hotels DOT COM hotwired travelocity enter vago but it does and it doesn't appear to tack on fees but you really need to be on your toes. When you're booking for instance. I found a hotel in New York City for one hundred nineteen dollars a night two nights plus twenty one dollars in nine cents for taxes that you come to two hundred and fifty nine dollars by my estimations but expedient checkout put us at two hundred eighty dollars what we missed it. I we were supposed to multiply both the roommate and the taxes by to also be on the lookout for great airline Fares on expedient but do note the airport listed. I I try to book a flight to Seattle from Los Angeles International Airport to quote was a hundred and sixty nine nine dollars. Round trip sat at unbelievable versus the average of three hundred dollars and up on the other airlines again this is from lax but once I clicked on enough buttons to get to the cart art the flight actually originated from Ontario airport some sixty miles away from my home not airbnb the Discount Hotel Hotel alternative got a well-deserved reputation for offering lower priced overnight stays in the ire of the hotel industry but as far as I'm concerned. It's never cheaper on Airbnb because the fees that's how a ninety six dollar townhouse in San Diego for two nights got to three hundred and eight dollars dollars. One third of the cost was fees fifty eight dollars for cleaning thirty two dollars. I service and twenty six dollars in taxes of the service. FEE AIRBNB says this helps us run our platform and offer services like twenty four seven support on your trip finally booking dot com the hotel prices here are pretty pretty straightforward. Even though you have to navigate your way through secret deals offers the discount the hotel slightly sometimes paying off so a room for two nights in Las Vegas biggest home in the notorious resort that consumers hate paying is simple a hundred and seventy eight dollars. I like how booking added the two nights together to show. Show me what I actually be paying plus thirty three dollars and eighteen cents tax again both night taxes were combined then the dreaded dreaded seventy dollar resort fee bringing the TAB to two hundred eighty one dollars and eighteen cents. At least. I know what booking dot com if I don't do it in Las Vegas. It's kind of a likely I'm going to get a resort earthy. What can consumers do not a lot except complain loudly heap added folks and maybe they'll change their ways. I'm Jefferson Jefferson Graham.
