Why Marketing & Dev Need Each Other With Jennie Larsen

"Were them. Simplify is yeah and what you guys do in about. Your older developments simplified is a full development company. The thing they do most is custom development fast product apps processes back in so they do custom coding and they do a lot of websites as well. But not so much wordpress sites or wicks type sites. These are sites where people need something very specific or they want a very specific customer journey or something interactive that you have to have custom coding written for and so i actually approached. My brother is one of the owners. He's owners with two other people. And i approached him and said you know it just makes sense to me that you guys would offer marketing solutions. Because you're a developer. Usually if someone is getting a product developed they actually did take that product to the market and so that kind of how that whole journey started. And i was about four years ago and since then we've just become a real powerhouse team between marketing and development. We've realized i brought in marketing. Customers that needed development and development has brought in customers that needed marketing. And so we've actually created this really cool powerhouse team. Between the two companies we used to just be development simplified now. We have marketing simplified. They are two separate companies but working under the same. We work in the same office. We have two offices that we have two teams and yes so it was a four year journey. We just the benefit to that has just been massive in. It's just the development beads. The marketing the marketing deeds development end the customers just really benefit from that relationship.

Tech Giants Cut Commissions It Charges App Developers

"Too big tech companies made a rare concession to developers that do business with them. Operators of mobile phone apps have to pay to get their products seen by customers of apple and google critics say those big tech companies are so powerful. They are like nation states and the charges for mobile phone apps. We're like a tax. Now comes a tax cut apple and google financial supporters of npr which we cover like any companies and here bobby allen reports video game developer derek. More in who runs a company called flow play says. It's daunting to sell his video games for mobile phones. Because apple and google app stores take a big cut in a market where there's a thirty percent fee for just for the platform. This breaks down the pipe to the extent where there's almost nothing left for developers. If you have a smartphone chances are you have to use an app store controlled by apple or google to download stuff. The company say they need to collect a commission on what you buy to support the privacy and security of apps apple and google have defended these fees for more than a decade but now the companies have caved and slash them. You have sort of the reality of this and then you have the optics of this. What mandy nelson of the analytics firm sensory tower means is yes. This is a victory for small app developers who are set to benefit the most but for apple at the end of the day or google at the end of the day. What does is actually meaning to. Their bottom lines is not that substantial. But this was never just about money are coming right in the midst of some serious legal jeopardy for apple and google state and federal. Investigators are probing whether the company's broke the law by allegedly making it hard for rivals to compete with them apple ceo. Tim cook is even scheduled to testify about these fees in a trial next month. So the timing of the fee cuts. That is interesting. Says chris saggers. He's a law. Professor at cleveland state university who studies antitrust issues. I think it probably reflects the sense of the two companies that they're insignificant trouble trouble saker says that extending in all of branch to developers. Right now is not going to do much about. Two firms made an agreement to lower their prices. Only when they're under immense legal pressure doesn't make me think that this market has become competitive that everything is fine more at the sixty two person video game company flow play. Says we'll take it. I would say the really small guys earn ecstatic so much. So that morton says he's gonna make some new moves into mobile video game apps

Biden boosts US vaccine stockpile as world waits

"President Biden announced a deal with Johnson and Johnson for another 100 million doses of their single shot. Covert 19 vaccine. Christopher Roland is covering this for the Washington Post and spoke with Cuomo's Taylor Band sites. Christopher Do we know how long it's going to take for the U. S to see delivery of these additional 100 million doses? Well, this additional $100 million is just probably destined to arrive in the second half of the year. Really the way that the administration is framing this and the president just a few minutes ago in the White House. Are framing this as a precautionary step. I mean, there were the U. S already has more than enough vaccine, Tonto on order to vaccinate, you know the entire adult population. Almost twice over, But But what the president said, is that the nation needs to be prepared for the eventuality that there's going to be things like. Variance, you mutated variants that require a booster shot. Also, there's the strong possibility that early next year there'll be a pediatric vaccine, a pediatric authorization. And at that point there will be new, fresh demand for a whole new, You know, young population of young people. So really, what the administration do is here is this is all about stockpiling supply at this point. Not immediate supply in the next few couple of months. You know, I think I got a little bogged down or lost over how many millions of each vaccine has been ordered and delivered in all of that. When when all these purchases were made, and stockpile is grown on. What not? Is there a deadline or or killed by date on these vials of vaccine or or is there A pretty long shelf life. They have good shelf life as long as they're frozen, you know, and kept in a deep freeze on refrigerated and also remember there being rolled out. You know, in the tens of millions each month on then use pretty fast S O the president's promise that there's going to be enough available by the end of May. We're all American adults to get the vaccine. Then you know, actually getting it through the pipeline at the local level and into arms will be enough. You know, a bit of more of a challenge, as we all know. But by summer, you know, there's a possibility that you know everybody wants a vaccine should be able to have it so But no, there's not too much danger of these things expiring. It'll be in a stockpile stocked away and it also be Made on a schedule that's live, you know, every month all year long. The heads of Mark and Johnson and Johnson were speaking today just before President Biden took the podium. How vital was the partnership between those two companies in making not only this new $100 million purchase possible, But in building that stockpile? Both companies have not been transparent on that front. To tell you the truth. So and they're not discussing how many new vaccines Merc will be making of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, the president has said, and last week when he announced that extraordinary, unprecedented partnership That they'll be doubling essentially the back the total jnj vaccine supply s. So you were talking definitely hundreds of millions of doses of vaccine. To come on, you know, later this year and into next year on at that point Depending on how much the U. S is going to need. And if there's variance and boosters required, you know that could be a problem. But then you might see some of that begin to get shared with the rest of the world. There's a huge Get growing concern about the gap between the US and

TikTok Sale Is Shelved

"Last year. Tiktok was a hot topic. The trump administration had threatened to ban the popular video app owned by china bytedance. If the company didn't divest its us operations to an american company after a lot of twists and turns the trump administration signed off on a preliminary deal between tiktok or and walmart and over the past few months. Regulators have been working with the companies to hammer out the final details. But now there's a new wrinkle. We report that the biden administration is shelving the deal indefinitely pending a broader review of potential security risks. John mackinnon covers tech policy for the wall street journal and he joins me now to explain. Hi john thanks for being here. Glad to be here. So john catch us up. This deal was reached in the fall. What's happened since then. The short answer is not a lot has been happening. The deal that was announced in september kind of language since then for a couple of reasons one is that president trump himself kind of lost interest in it as the election. Season heated up. And then you know the post-election drama kind of consumed him then the biden administration took over and they have decided to do kind of a big picture. Broadscale review of all of the china tech issues that the trump administration kind of left hanging and that's causing them to want to rethink basically the entire tiktok arrangement. So what can you tell us about some of the reasoning behind that. And what does it say about the administration's priorities concerning tech policy. Especially when it comes to well. I think that there's recognition on both sides of the political spectrum that the issues being raised by chinese tech platforms and chinese technology in general are real concerns and are substantial concerns and the trump administration to its credit was kind early to recognize some of these concerns but their approach. I think the biden people feel was a little bit scattershot. That's not a word that they use. But i think that that's really how it looks to them. And so they're trying to find a way to address all of these data security national security issues in a rational way that kind of can be used across the board in different contexts and with different chinese tech companies. So they're they're trying to avoid the kind of individual targeting of companies that the trump administration was effectively. Doing how are tiktok and its owner bytedance responding to security concerns. You know bytedance has offered to do a lot of different things but so far. I think it's fair to say has not done everything that the us government would like the us. Government wants to find some way to make sure that american users data stays out of the purview of the chinese communist party of the chinese government and the folks who run bytedance assure everybody that they would never turn over american users data to the chinese government. But so far. I think it's fair to say. The american government is not convinced that that's right and they're really looking for some assurances that this chinese based company will not ever ballot to the wishes of the chinese government in turn over american users data and it's frankly tough nut to crack so that's what led the trump administration to try to concoct a deal that would effectively transfer ownership of the american operation to a majority. Us company but nothing has come of that so far now i think it's fair to say that the bytedance folks think that they have sufficient protections built into their system now to keep data out of the hands of the chinese government but us officials are not convinced that it's enough. What's the impact for oracle and walmart of shelving this deal even if only temporarily well i think there are different implications for those two companies. I think walmart went into this with the idea of developing a closer relationship with tiktok and building up its promotions and its brand through tiktok in i think that they have sort of reached enough understandings with the bytedance folks and tiktok on the marketing side. There was they've developed enough partnerships on the marketing side that they are basically happy even if they don't ever wind up with an ownership stake in the us operation oracle. I think is hoping to play a role in maybe hosting. The data may be securing the data that's developed by the us operation. I think that they would still like to own a chunk of this business. I think that they would like to have more of a presence in platforms in social media. But they'll be happy with what they get. If this deal does go forward. There are still a couple of legal loosens here to write. What would still need to be tied up will. There are a lot of cases that are going on but you know cases come and go As the needs arising go away. So i think that there are a lot of interesting issues being presented by these cases you know the extent to which the american president can exert this kind of control on foreign based tech platforms. That seemed to present a national security risks. I think that that's an issue that even congress probably will need to address further and there's some interest within the biden administration in trying to do that to try to get congress to do something. It may be that the next move is really in congress's court all right. That's wall street. Journal reporter john mackinnon. John thank you so much for joining me today. You're

By the end of Good afternoon. Good after you knew into the listeners on this beautiful, snowy day. I know you got appreciate it, don't you? And then, then it gets called super cold. I don't know if I appreciate that as much doctor Copan, but that's the way just that's what we have to deal with. Hey, I want to ask you about the vaccines in general get a lot of things to get to, But I just sort of, you know, I feel like that's top of mind for so many people getting the vaccine and I wonder sort of big picture. If you could just kind of give us your view. It seems we have to and distribution and others could be in the pipeline pretty soon. Just where are we right now? Yeah, I thought we wish we were way had more the quantity of vaccines that were available so we can move faster and get more jabs into people's arms. But it is what it is. We know that there's more coming. From the federal government s. Oh, that will be good. That will be helpful. And we also know that Mo Derna incisor had been able to pick up the pace of there. Manufacturers, So we should be seen Morva vaccine coming from those two companies over the next month or so, so that would be helpful. Then we fully expect the Johnson and Johnson will be bringing its data from its faith retrial. To FDA that should happen any day. It will then take f d a couple of weeks. To do its analysis. Then there's an independent advisory board that will look at the data and make its recommendation to FDA and our hope is by the end of this month. Johnson and Johnson's vaccine will be Proof from emergency use, and we'll start to get Johnson and Johnson's vaccine into use in the United States, and there's several million doses that apparently is ready to go. Once they get there, okay, and they're picking up the pace of their manufacturer is well. AstraZeneca, which has been its vaccine is the mainstay of what's been used in Britain. That data in its you ask trial should be coming to FDA shortly as well. So hopefully we'll have AstraZeneca in the United States Per happened, perhaps in March. And then there's also the number of that vaccine that hopefully will be seen that data pretty rapidly to So there's a bunch of new vaccines that should be giving into the pipeline within the next month or so, maybe a little bit longer, so there's a lot more coming. So all that's good news. It is good news, and it's not soon enough, but but we have to be patient. And it does seem as if how fortunate are we right that we have this many vaccines developed in record time and making it out. Folks, right? We just It's something. Yeah, I mean, really, you know, we we've talked about this before right that it's just It's incredible what the scientific community and the vaccine industry's been able to do. Get vaccines out to us this quickly. You know, we're coming up to the Anniversary next month of the first cases in the United States, and we're already giving vaccines. I mean, we now I mean, think about this good news. There are no more Americans. With gotten at least one dose of covert 19 vaccine, then his tested positive. Covert 19. That's a great great threshold that we just passed and I was so happy to see that obviously, they're more people who's had covert infections and have tested positive. But the fact that we now control that we've had more people getting at least one dose that is tested positive. That's a great place and that should make us all feel good that we're on our way.

"I think not many companies do what we do say of see we we don't take the traditional marketing in terms of us storytelling we do put 'cause we d speaking as we get out there and actually talk to people rather than to them through the medium of a white paper of a tweet cg that as well but we get out there and we actually tell the story we interview people we hit from the real people when just sort of spouting soundbites sort of sort of saying the real story the real facts behind things and i think that makes a real difference i'm why people listen to us because we say it how is also thing around corporate language and the big consultancies using very long terms and business speak or joining the big consultancy a long time ago you shouldn't rights let you talk you know you twelve and yet now we've almost coming back to that actually authenticity swearing being passionate about what you're putting a human face on on sort of traditional financial services communications on people are attracted by the way real people on the other side and you can imagine you place reading as one of us would say it kind of thing as opposed to just being blunk white paper and we've we've had that feedback a law like having that's kind of like with the poll costal with writing would just sing people we on now when we're talking to a bold or token to kind of a junior consultant who's asking for advice you know like that and i think that's so refreshing if i wanna see as an and i think it's refreshing for os as much as people sort of consuming that stuff because a lot of is you know you'll you know everybody's sort of experiences looking at different companies it's really frigging tarring pretending to be like something else in speaking in the postseason and kind of doing all of that stuff so actually the sort of ability just to be you'll sell frees up so much more opportunity touchy get shit done i think we surprise people whether it's talking to people in buying so whether it's you know at a conference trade show and you talk.
