Why Twitter is a Severely Underrated Platform
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about why twitter is a severely rated platform that I tell you what happened with twitter recently. What I did recently, where did you do? So I started running ads for like ten dollars a day or fifteen dollars a day and what happened was one of our big clients I think everyone knows the name they saw it and that led to a upscale conversation and let too much deeper conversations and not only that I'm running this ad right now basically like a blog post and more and more people are seeing it and people with like. Blue checkmark that are reputable investors or VC's or vendors there following me they're liking this is really good for branding her ten dollars fifteen dollars a day it's done so much for me right now and not only not ballers day without regaining growth winds, ten bucks a day growth wise negligible getting impressions. The most important thing is getting impressions on these both the reach my goal with these is the reach, and so you shouldn't be aiming for like. At least for me, I'm not aiming for conversions or anything like that I think if you're running ten dollars a day or maybe fifteen hundred dollars, the reason I started doing this was because I started seeing other people running these ads extra Wilkins in for example, from tiny capital, he just keeps running the same over fifty dollars a day but I remember him and that we talk about the rule fourteen, the rule seven, whatever I just think twitter. From ads perspective is very underrated but from a learning perspective I've also talked about how to me. It's the most important social network because I learned so much more from than other social networks. So when you're using your impressions beginning Yeah I mean let me just open it right now. So while we do that, why do you think is underrated platform? So twitter has a lot of smart high net worth people on there. It's not the sex. It's not like instagram. It's not like based. Youtube it's a place where you find the likes of like the e-leong must of the world when the Bill Gates in the role constantly communicate and they liked doing it themselves, it's not like having someone who works for them postings they themselves like going on twitter and tweeting, and conversely with others or that reason I think it's powerful because although they may not have the reach you can get access to really wealthy influential people on twitter in a much more easier way than you can on instagram or case Lincoln rainy their social. Yup. I have the numbers the so I guess I'm spending a little more I. Guess we wrapped up the budget a little bit so in the last seven days so it looks like about ninety five dollars spent I think we've wrapped up from ten dollars a day so six, hundred, seventy dollars in spend one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand impressions not the greatest CPM cost per thousand impressions but to Neal's point he hit the nail on the head the people that you're reaching our high net worth smart individuals that like to pontificate they like to act they want to show their wisdom. So that's why twitter is really underrated depends on what you're selling to. Out of the impression, how many did you get your site? Let's see well, but in general like there's a lot of channels like twitter Radha contrast, the lot of people don't talk about snapchat doll during its audiences. These underrated pop why we underrated platforms for civically. But the others as Wallace is not a lot of competition for advertising Baseba can google or instagram. Google would also be youtube based also the instrument, but they're all SACCHARIN. You look from the other channels they're much more affordable Lincoln that is thriving social network from ad standpoint. It is quite expensive is a lot of companies, zipper sales and recruiting people spend a lot of money on jobless other than that I found that the other networks much more affordable. Yeah. So here's the thing. Hey, it shows how am I at cloud formed the the second thing is it's actually not showing me clicks just because I'm focused on impressions cost result is giving me a CPM. So I am not seeing clicks right now on it, but I didn't tell you. Thousand. Yeah. So something impressions, dozen impressions it's not the best CPM's around five bucks or so but I can tell you based on the up sell, and then also the people that are engaging with me and the people that are falling me as well. It's worth its weight in gold. So use it. You don't have to use it for the ads side of things but

We've got some cool ally interesting news about The McLaren announced that well, the Gordon Murray announcement that we wanted to get into. So we sort of got this job. So we can I hit that before we get started. Just, another word from our friends at Dodd's it's A. IT'S A it's time for dodge power dollars and that means for every horse power. You get ten dollars off your purchase on dodge challenger Dodge Charger and Dodge Durango come in and save dodge power dollars for pretty sweet deal. So as we As we are sitting down to record this.

Now he said a goal of no more than one thousand kilos in weight and he hit nine eighty I believe puts it somewhere around twenty one, hundred, seventy, maybe twenty one, hundred, seventy, four pounds. This is extremely lightweight way in in. Today's world. Under twenty two hundred pounds. Of. A modern day car it. The Way to do that. And explain it when you go and you watch the videos, you read the press about it. Is. You have to design this thing from the ground up. With weight savings in mind every single step of the way, the the CAR IS MONACO CARBON FIBRE the entire bodies carbon fibre everything. That could be carbon. Fibre is carbon fiber of. The the engine he went to Cosworth and said, it needs to be naturally aspirated. It needs to be the twelve.

It was a little sarcastic you know. For example she thought it was funny. She would kind of sing operatic style but make up. A language and my friends author she was speaking some foreign language. Singing it. At the time I thought it was highly embarrassing but you know I've kind of come to appreciated. Your Dad. There's a great story in your book where you're going to take the driving test.

And he goes goes all right again. So We back off the lawn over the Bush and then he's okay leave a note for Mr. Rain. And we leave a note and then I went and took my driver's test and by the way past, and then afterwards you know the next day patched up as long went to the nursery a bought a new Bush planted it and apologized.

You say the book I wouldn't stop until I. got the job or be when the issued a restraining order against me since you were relentless.

Why Is There a Coin Shortage in America?
"At grocery stores, convenience stores and hardware stores across America. Curious signs are popping up asking customers to pay with credit cards, debit cards, or exact change. Is it because cashiers don't want to handle physical dollars and sense that could be contaminated with the coronavirus? nope. It's because the United States is currently experiencing a coin shortage. So? Where have they gone? America's pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters haven't disappeared. The covid nineteen pandemic has simply disrupted the normal cycle of coin circulation. According to the US Treasury, there were forty seven point, eight, billion dollars, worth of coins in circulation as of April twenty, twenty, which was actually four, hundred, million dollars more than April, two, thousand nineteen, but those coins are not moving through the economy like they should be. The Federal Reserve gives several reasons as to why this is happening. Banks and businesses nationwide closed their doors during the lockdown phases of the pandemic including cash and coin heavy sectors like convenient stores, public transit, and laundromats. The US mint also slowed its production of new coins during the early stages of the pandemic as staff was reduced for safety reasons. The men's Philadelphia and Denver Location's. Even as the economy reopened, consumers are opting for contactless payment and generally using less cash and coins. Meaning more coins are sitting at home in Mason, jars piggy banks, and under couch cushions. So. What does this mean? Retail stores are feeling the pinch of inconvenience and passing it along to their customers. The national, Grocers Association and several other retail industry trade groups sent a strongly worded letter to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome, Powell and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in late June saying that the federal rationing of coin shipments to banks quote threatens the functioning of our member businesses and by extension the needs of our customers. In their letter, the group cited economic statistics showing that cash is still very much can in certain sectors and among certain consumer demographics, for example, between forty five to sixty percent of sales at grocery stores and convenience stores are cash payments, nearly half of all transactions of ten dollars or less are paid in cash and consumers with an annual household income of twenty, five, thousand dollars or less pay in cash for forty, three percent of their transactions. So what's the solution? The long term solution is to wait for the economy to return to normal at which point coins will naturally flow back into circulation. But in the meantime, the Federal Reserve and the US meant are taking action. The meant has ramped up coin production outpacing its usual one, billion coins a month with one point, two, billion coins in June and one point three, five, billion a month for the rest of twenty twenty, according to The New York Times. The Federal Reserve announced in June that it was rationing out its inventory by sending banks and credit unions smaller than normal coin shipments based on historical demand. The Fed also convened an emergency, US coin task, force composed of government and industry leaders including banks, an armored car companies. The task force is expected to come up with a set of recommendations by the end of. July. One of the task forces early accomplishments was to create the Hashtag get coin moving which banks and credit unions are plastering across twitter to encourage people to cash in their piggy banks to get more coins back in circulation.

Skoll I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven best hacks for your facebook ads, so go first the first one around facebook ads is. I have been loving same with my team. Do the offer that we're pushing right now. We just love looking facebook library facebook. Ad Library I also at the same time. I like looking at what ads people running on Youtube and Google us into a call at beat for that, but by doing this competitive analysis or even looking at people are not direct competitors I get a lot of ideas and the ideas that I get their super important based on how facebook ads are designed, because the one thing that matters the most is your creative, and so if you can get. Get ideas from people that are running a lot of creative. It's GonNa save you a lot of time, and it's hopefully going to help you move faster. This requires a little bit of work, but if you rotate up your creatives, really really often like I'm talking about Multiple Multiple Times a day while you'll find is when you upload a new creative within the first few minutes. Jason tries to push more traffic to it to see how it does. Clicks tend to be cheaper impression. Send to be cheaper and then normalizes that you actually credit on the campaign and keep switching. Very very often. What you'll find is right when you switch him up. The numbers tend to be a little bit better number three so I mean people talk about. They've been talking about messenger out for the last couple of years we've had Mickael from many chat on the leveling up podcast before, and they're doing really well crushing mobile monkeys doing well and. FACEBOOK MESSENGER ADS. Depending on the business that you're in to be able to engage with people to drive ads towards your facebook, messenger bought and to be able to help them based on what they're looking for the segment people that's powerful, so I, still think not a lot of people have tried it i. still think it's worth look again. You can use a tool like many, or you can use a tool like mobile monkey. Number Four. Take your check page. Anyone who doesn't convert creative video talk not what it would be like to be a customer whether selling your product or service showed an video. You can even have customers on their with video testimonials edit the video pop it up as a remarketing ad, it'll be one of your heart is converting ads out. There works out well cool and similar to that thinking about when you're doing facebook guides I like retargeting people with even more content right so what I mean. mean by that so for us. Let's say someone visits ourselves marketing page so instead of telling them to convert directly I give even more content on it right so I spend maybe could be five to ten dollars a day. Trying to its elegant, we have a lot of people that reached page will use a daily unique reach option, and so we're gonNA reach unique people each day, and then they're just getting more impressions. They might not necessarily click on our ad, but the impressions count right because. Because we talk about the rule of seven, maybe be the rule fourteen, but you want to get as many impressions as you can on these people, so we're not spending a ton of money, or we're sending even more relevant content at ten dollars a day off SAS content targeting people that have reached maybe a middle, the funnel page or bottom of the funnel page, and then we're just constantly staying top of mind so whenever they're ready, they can take an action right, but it's look nowadays you. You already know people have landed on that page. You might as well take full advantage. I'd just be everywhere on facebook. ADS are a great way to do that. Number six celebrities tend to convert better than not using celebrities go to cameo, a handful of celebrities to
Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter
"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened.

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace.

There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say.

The one day you need insurance when you need it.
Peacock is live: Heres everything you need to know
"He caught. The last of the big streaming services has finally launched nationwide, but at joint a crowded room, streaming services, including busy, plus and that Blix. So how does this stack up? I'm Roger, Chang into your daily charge. Beckley I don't have to answer that question because with me. Is Our media expert, John? Salzman and software services. Reviewer Alison. Danisco, welcome both you. Thanks all right so John with you. He is live after having launched in Beta mode to caucus users a couple months ago, so so give us a land now. What is the streaming wards landscape? Look like this is basically the last of the big new services to land at least as far as we know. We had apple and Disney plus come in November than we had depending if you consider it bigger. Bigger not clubby came in April followed by Hbo Max in May, and now finally we have peacock, and it's a little bit different than the rest of those, because it not only is, it has big budget originals big back catalog, like most of those other services do, but it's also doing some other things that are digging a little bit when the others I it has. It's going to have live news. Life sports other sorts of news and sports replays highlights that kind of thing and crucially has a free tear at as a tier with advertising we can watch about two thirds of the catalog just by signing up and not paying anything there are ways you can take out the ads and unlock the full catalogue if you WanNa pay, but having that sort of on ramp that free just sign up and start watching thing. It's something that these other big services in the streets haven't tried yet. Yeah, I would just sort of generally speaking. Have we talked about the free cheering a bit but? In terms of these other players out there have any cover merged as must have service to rebel Netflix's certainly a streaming service, the new streaming service that's landed with the biggest slash by far is Disney plus. One media analyst when it launched last year there was one media analyst and widely followed one who called it one of the greatest product launches of all time. To give you a sense. Track Google search trends around these launch dates, and the Google search trends for Netflix are a good baseline. You know it's established. It's always very popular as a search gives you a good baseline of how other services stack up and people, search addressed most of these other services. They haven't crossed the level of net search interest, even on launch days, whereas Disney plus like quadrupled the amount of Netflix interests on its launch day now it's come down since then, but among these new services Disney is the one to beats, and nobody has even come close so far. Are also you've been testing out the service. How has the experience on Peacock Ben? Overall I've been having a really positive experience with peacock so far to be honest. I wasn't expecting all that much. Since we do already have Sumani streaming services, but the fact that it has this free tier is John mentioned where you can still watch. Tons of movies and TV shows with ADS does make it stand out from competitors like Netflix and Hulu it gives you something for free that similar to say a Pluto TV or a to B, but with this premium streaming. Streaming service interface, so it looks really good, and you also have the opportunity to upgrade if you want to. It's pretty easy to navigate. It has a few quirks, and there are some features that are still missing but overall. It's a solid free surface at launch. If you don't mind watching those ads in terms of that that user experience that the navigation the experience itself. How does it stack up against DISAPP- loss or Netflix's or some other more Polish premium services so in. In my mind, peacock isn't quite trying to be a Netflix or Hulu or HBO Max. It has a similar tile layout, and you can browse things by TV shows and movies and get recommendations, but it's kind of doing something different, and it's probably not going to replace any of those others for you, but it's something you can get for free to have more options. It reminds me a little bit of Amazon prime video in a way like on that one you can get. Get, a lot of shows and movies included as part of your prime subscription, but you'll find others mixed in that. You do have to pay for so on peacock. You'll find some shows with a little purple feather in the corner, which means you have to upgrade premium to watch them, but they're so plenty of free options to. And since we're in this time of economic uncertainty, you know free services a welcome option, even if you don't watch it every single day, right? Joan. Beyond this free tier is there anything else about peacock that makes stand out, or the folks should know about? Yeah, definitely, the frontier is obviously the first thing that people are going to encounter when they try to sign up and they realize they don't have to provide any sort of payment information. Start watching. But beyond that you know. Being in the pandemic, there's a lot of things that peacock wanted to have available right now for its launch that aren't a manifest really until next year or later, for example, the entire reason that it's launching right now in the middle of July is that originally peacock witches, NBC's streaming service thought they'd be able to piggyback on all the interest in the Olympics. That should be happening right now. Is the broadcasting partner for the Olympics in the United States, and so of course everyone remembers every Olympic season how there's just like blanket coverage on NBC. All of NBC's other cable channels. But because we don't have that until next year, that's a huge driver to get people interested and knowledgeable that that the service exists. That just doesn't exist right now. Also their originals. They have nine original series at launch, but just like everybody else all their production of new content. At least any live action content had to be suspended in March, and so they don't have as much in their pipeline. That's going to be ready to release win. They had hoped to release it as have if we weren't in this situation where everybody's lockdown the also could you break down the? Tiers, obviously, there's the free cheer that's at basement. What are you getting with those I? Think there's two different paid tears. He kinda run through them. And you actually get sure so in the free tear you get thirteen thousand hours of TV shows, Movies News Life Sports. Some of the biggest name shows you'll find. There are and Recreation, Thirty Rock, law and order. Order Svu but you know. Some of those are also currently on Netflix and Hulu to so there's some confusion there potentially, and you also know that the office won't be coming to peacock until January when it's calm when his contract with Netflix runs out, but in the meantime you'll also find current episodes of NBC shows one week later on that free tier. In terms of movies, you've got some big slightly older hits like Jurassic Park the Bourne identity, the Matrix and also newer kind of Oscar Z. ones like phantom thread and tally, and so for something. That's free. You'll probably find something. You WanNa Watch, but then you'll also find these two paid tears. One is five dollars a month which gives you access to the full Peacock Library which is about twenty thousand hours of TV, and movies, but you'll still see ads on that one. If you WANNA GO AD free. It costs ten dollars a month and you'll get still get that full libraries well. A few things you'll find on the premium tears, but not the free tier are all of the episodes of peacock originals, the major one launch being brave new world, and you'll also find more new movies and also next day access to new episodes of current. NBC shows one interesting thing that we haven't really seen before is that you'll get early access to some shows like late night with Seth Meyers and the tonight show. Show with Jimmy Fallon the night that they air, so you can watch them at eight PM instead of eleven thirty pm, but that would actually start until those shows are back in the studio and not running from home during the pandemic. Okay We've talked about this before, but they're just too many strips out there. They're all asking for money. Yes, peacock has a free tier, but there's clearly they want people to. Upgrade to these premium tears. How does market support so may services Comey Services? Can a household actually afford to pay for so from the experts that I've talked to and the research that they've been doing? It seems like there's a couple of interesting things going on one is that the total number of streaming services that people are subscribed to and are trying is going up now. That's partially because in the. The pandemic so many entertainment choices that we normally would that normally would keep us from streaming aren't happening right now, and we're all locked up in our homes, and so it's the primary way other than regular TV. Your needs that you would entertain yourself when you're stuck at home anyway, that's to do with it, but even before the pandemic. We were starting to see that all. This wave of new services what starting to tap higher, the amount of services people were trying and also subscribing to. But what we've found in the pandemic from the research that I've seen as that people are also much more willing to cancel subscriptions so. It's mostly price sensitivity factor as you know. Jobless numbers are soaring, and as people are reconsidering howl. They dedicate their money every month. Once they hit the point where a free trial ends or this ends. They're more willing to quit. Because they become more educated on other options that don't require payment that conserve their entertainment needs, you know. Alison, she mentioned to be There's other ones like that. That are free services that peacock sort of straddles the line with people are realizing that they have those options to if they don't WanNa, keep paying
NBC's free streaming service Peacock hopes to cut through subscription fatigue
"Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Melanie and Matt Peacock, which is the streaming offering from NBC? Universal and comcast is coming online next week. You know people made fun of Peacock in the industry. People were like Oh. Peacock is so late and peacock is so behind, and peacock is going to be free and Haha that's funny and I have to. To I'M GONNA treat myself not for one minute that I think that was funny. I thought that is sensible logical, and it will be a standout in this crowded field, and I kind of feel like I'm right now a lot of people. I think also were thinking that I was right. We'll see, but there is definitely what what comcast calls subscription, fatigue and I agree. Agree there is a feeling in the consumer world that there's all these subscription television services that are pitching themselves as Netflix's alternatives or or Netflix's for X., or you know you gotta get this upgrade to HBO and get HBO. Max and they all cost money. And if you look at the advertising associated with peacock there hammering home, the fact that this is free, if you. You want a free alternative to those other guys. This is for you and there's some pretty good stuff. I mean there's thirty rock. There's law and order. There's movies from NBC Universal You. Know they've got decent stuff on there. And they're looking for that casual TV viewer, who is migrating away from the cable universe, cutting the cord and looking for something they can kind of. And they don't necessarily need the latest greatest game of thrones that that. The premium subscribers looking for I wouldn't use game of thrones, because that they would need but other things they don't necessarily need, and they don't want to find it and I know people in the industry. For example, it still haven't figured out how to get HBO Max and it all just feels confusing, and and they can't deal with it and so this thing that being free and And the casual viewer that's definitely does appeal to me. You know if I had a long day. I WanNa, Watch something short easy, familiar and free, but you can also pay if if you don't have comcast us as your cable provider, or if you don't have a an access to it that way, you can pay five dollars a month and if you wanted to be ad, free? Free you can pay ten dollars a month and I will note that both of those prices are cheaper than an HBO subscription. So that is an option that I. Think is the people will want to look at meanwhile. Disney plus dropped Hamilton. They've needed something. They haven't had anything that really appeals to older people, or you know not not little kids for a long time they had a huge jump in people downloading their APP over that Hamilton weekend. Whether Hamilton really helps Disney right now remains to be seen, but I think the buzz around. It can't hurt no definitely not, and that's why they moved up the theatrical release, which was not supposed to be till twenty twenty one and put it on the service over the July fourth weekend they. They need a positive narrative right now Disney. Because this next earnings, call is going to be brutal. They have zero revenue from the theme. Parks Pin is just in free fall without sports. They have no movies in theaters because there aren't any theatres they need something. And now they have these Hamilton numbers that they'll be able to reveal and I've seen a lot of people speculating about. About. How Big Hamilton is going to be on Disney pleasant? How many people are just going to subscribe for that? I think those numbers are going to be big but I think there are a little bit skewed in the discussion by the fact, that Hamilton is a media phenomenon and everybody on social media in the media world to talk about it. Ad Nauseam so I'm not sure. Sure exactly how big it's going to be. I think you may disagree with me a little bit on that I just feel like you know reminds me of Hbo had things like the Sopranos and everybody was talking about it and you say well. It's in a bubble, and it's the media, elites, or whatever, but the truth is that seeps out in gives the gives the product A. A bit of a sheen a feeling that you kind of made me want to be a part of that and want to watch what they have. The the issue is coming. Follow it up with anything and I don't know we'll see. Thank you matt. Thank
Ordering online groceries has gotten easier
"I looked? At Amazon, fresh whole foods cart posts. Posts, mates, target and Walmart. Let me fill you in Amazon fresh the promises same-day delivery when you visit the website as long as you were prime member, which caused one hundred nineteen dollars a year, and you order a minimum amount, usually thirty five or forty dollars when I made by order on Tuesday, morning I was promised a delivery by one thirty, and then when I tried later on again they're all gone. Gone, but they had free delivery on Wednesday and Thursday that made me happy. Whole Foods, which is also owned by Amazon their promises free two hour delivery again with prime membership I ordered it five minutes to two, and they put a four ninety nine delivery attached to it to have the food derived by four or free. If I could wait till six, which of course I could fill out better than waiting a week. Week, which is what it took me when I was trying to do it locally from some of the markets around La target tacked ten dollar delivery fee onto a forty dollar order unless I paid him one hundred bucks for the shipped service, which is owned by target. Now they did agree to get the order over to me within two hours, which is great, but it didn't like that hundred dollars and furthermore folks. Target has a feature where they will meet you outside and put all the food into your trunk. The only problem is. If you order on your computer, you can't get that service. You have to do it on the APP, so order on the APP. Instant card instant is the biggest of all of them, and they do food delivery for a lot of local markets. But the results are different when I ordered from Ralph's, which is part of the Kroger chain? I was ordered a two hour window when I ordered from Vancouver, which is part of the Albertson's chain. There were many hours, so they said I could get it that evening. FONS wanted to charge me ten dollars. Ralph's did not so that's a little weird, and of course on top of those fees is a big tip. You WanNa. Give a tip for. For your instinct card shoppers, the person who is going up and down the aisles, getting your food for you and then driving into your house post mates is more active in online food delivery from restaurants, but they do the groceries as well and just this week. Uber said it wanted to buy post. Speights for two point six five billion dollars now when I when I tried ordering from on post, mates ordered a forty five to sixty minute delivery promise. In also a ten dollar fee finally, Walmart free delivery, no delivery charges, minimum purchase, but a two-day way. Okay But you know what two days is fine. as I said when I was trying this back in March and April I was looking at one week weights so two days one day. The bottom line is it's a lot better now than it was I. Still Way prefer the process of walk into the store and shopping I find shopping online for grocery items tough because I don't know what I want until I see it,
"ten dollars" Discussed on VCR Podcast
"But the gaming Kinda Shit so. Yup I'M GONNA. Remain and think that this ten dollars extra is going to bring balance to the force. It's going to bring balance is. Worst that like they're gonNA increase the price i. get it as well but. I just feel the need to make this increase worth it. Because I mean it's a pretty significant increase man I mean. Technically. It's not even the questions, even the value of the game itself because the game is already worth more than what we're paying. The ten dollars more is actually more or less us being. It's like when you when you do your taxes wrong in the government comes back and says actually you always this. That's kind of what this is. Technically. Oh, them more money because we should have been paying the more. For the company's new that we would take on kindly to it, so they've avoided it as long as they could. So in a way it's not it's not up doesn't mean that they have to up the value. In fact, it just means that it's going to mean that all their uncanny practices are going to get under even bigger microscope. Like if they if they increase at ten dollars and company still have crunch, time and everything. Their employees have to work sixty hour weeks. Then clearly something so wrong, and it had nothing to do with the end, if if mortal combat twelve comes out, and is now ninety dollars, and they're still twenty dollars. You have to pay to get six characters. That's a problem. So I don't necessarily think that games themselves have to be higher value, but I think having ten dollars more added onto the price of a full game now does really put a lot of bad practices under even higher scrutiny because now. Players are already even more worried about how much money they're spending on games as a day. And now it's even more hyper. Look debts. Because now there's ten dollars every game they by which means if esteem sale comes out, and they put it fifty percent off, and instead of it being forty dollars forty five, so even.

"Seen no difference. So when you think about that, we as gamers. Kind of been spoiled. Not to mention when you look at what aims used to cost back when we were younger and how inflation? We're still like even if a game is seventy dollars US starting with PS five xbox series X. We're still not paying as much if you count the inflation rates from what we paid for super, Nintendo and Sega Genesis Games back in. which is crazy like I remember Frano trigger on Super. Nintendo at e begins in candidate. It was ninety. Plus attack actually I also believe Donkey Kong. Sixty four was ninety dollars when it came out, and that was late nineties. When it came out that it's. In other words we should in theory. Be Paying more than one hundred dollars per game. Now on the flip side, does that make much sense when the consul like let's say games cost one hundred dollars. Why is the consoles four hundred dollars? That's as questions get weird. Because, it costs four games to make Adam. But it also just sort. Of like man, all of a sudden doesn't look great that there is a disc version of PS five. If Games are going to be ten dollars more so the very least you can still resell and get some of that money back. Games just don't want even make ten bucks back, but. You'll get your fifty cents. Fifty seventy five cents. It depends it depends on the sorry to trade deals. It's a buck fifty now. It's also with this pricing of gaming. If is going to increase APPS essentially. is they're going to be less? DLC required no. That has nothing to do with the other in in all honesty. I don't think that will change anything on that front. Madden will cost seventy dollars us, and we'll still have the exact same shit that it does. That's again going back to what we said. Before the break. It's going to take legislation to change that. Because I don't think we gamers are going to put up with. This is the weird part actually. We as gamers are putting up with deal. See I don't think we'd put up with ten dollars. which is weird when you really think? We're not like. People are going to get really fucking upset. that. A game, wait, let's say let's let's even say horizon to will cost seventy dollars. They're going to get upset about back, but they're not going to be as upset. When a game that used to cost sixty dollars charges you fifteen dollars for received pass a fighting game characters..
"ten dollars" Discussed on VCR Podcast
"We had a very interesting piece of news, and this is what we're going to end the show off with NBA Two, K. twenty-one which. Should be the new story should be. They're using a dead man to sell premium copies of a game which is troubling in itself Yup. So Kobe. Bryant is on the cover of the premium versions that you have to spend one hundred dollars for. And I should have been the story, but the more interesting piece actually came because we can just shit on touquet dot. That's easy, but we already did blue-box action kind of so. The interesting story came when we found out that the price or the standard edition is seventy us, which is interesting, because normally games are sixty. So that leads to the idea. That in this next generation voiding games, may what? We were going. You're taking different tangent. Why shed the Kobe thing would have been the story, but. See Bingo card again while the fuckers now listening. The real story comes in that next Jiang. Games may actually be ten dollars ten dollars more expensive from now. And I think it's going to be the norm I hate to say. It but I think with next Gen. They're the first ones to announce it, but going forward. I think Games are going to be ten dollars more I. think that's like seventy dollars us now going forward. Furniture Lines that for us we may be ninety bucks for for a new game. We definitely. We're going to be paying eighty, nine, nine, thousand nine. Which means more to the credence of I am going to be like. Let's say this actually is the case. I will be very curious to see the second starts. For twelve months straight. What the overall sales figures are like for games at full price. I'd love to see how much that. I really know that it will go down and it won't go down small. I don't think it'll go down small I. Think Ten dollars is a lot to people now. Ten dollars dogs. Myself Baga game brand new anymore. If most games are ninety dollars, it would be like a once a year thing for me at best it would have to be like a cyberpunk level Oh. My God I need this game. But. I was GONNA. Say I. Don't think I would be I. Don't buy any games new. I think it would be. You would get real. Real. Selective and it would be. Like I'd pick up. CYBERPUNK and I don't even know if I'd grab avengers and outriders an. Alarm going on in his room at saying games. Going ten dollars more alerts alerts and.

Patchwork Junkie with Kyle Dean Houston
"Hello everyone welcome to the addicted mind podcast, my guest today is Kyle Anderson author of Patchwork, Junkie and Kyle. Why don't you introduce yourself? -Ture Brown first of all I just want to thank you, this is. It's always great. People do their best to give a platform for conversations like this, so I really appreciate, it's connected to you and your audience just really quickly first and foremost I, my husband, a father and proud of both of those things I'm also a sales executive and a coach and a spear as well as an author and spach were. Yeah, thank you so much for coming on. And we were just talking earlier about being DADS and and fatherhood, and the beauty that comes with that so I'm excited to hear about your story. And why don't we just start at the beginning? How how did this all start? And then we'll get to how you ended up writing the book, but tell me a little bit about the beginning sure. I'm assuming you don't WanNa know that was born in the seventies or any of that stuff, so we'll just start with the addiction. We'll just leap into it if you don't mind. Yeah Yeah, so, what ended up happening I was a young entrepreneur in Missouri Twenty, four twenty five years old, and I had my own carpet store and some strange fate I got addicted to meth amphetamine in a very short period of my life I started using needles. The only way I'm ever going to quit. I mean I just spiraled into a deep depression and was convinced the only way I was ever going to get sober was an overdose and I tried my best had. I ended up teaching myself how to Cook Meth as an act of survival, and ended up becoming one of the biggest meth cooks Kansas City in the early nineties, instead of having an overdose I got arrested was facing. Thirty years of my life ended up in a cell by myself for twenty three hours a day for almost a year. I'm going to read this story tremendously, but ended up getting a nine year sentence from that, and then when I went off to do my nine years when I was about to get ruled out, ended up, getting indicted by the fans and I was facing life, so a lot of this is in the book. Don't want to ruin any of the story. Then ended up doing seven years by the grace of God it. A total of seven years behind bars walked at the age of thirty five scared to death, no college degree, no network I'd never even sent an email and I went from a ten dollar an hour employee at a call center I was the guy that used to call up. Issue to take a brief clip for your to your engine on your verizon, but went from that to a decade later, becoming a vice president cited two billion dollars of trade. And Bat Artemije story is very complex and difficult side lights. That's it in a very small concise nutshell, so really going through all of it right right from the very beginning to finding a place for yourself. That feels right at at the end. And you are able to to find your way well. I think just like everybody. The answer's Yes. Of course it is, it's a it's a glorious story right living. It was not as fun as failing it I promise you, but the baggage not so obvious. Is that ten years that I spent? Climbing. The ladder of Gordon America was ten years, shame ills and fear that I would wish on anybody so my story with the exception of my beautiful wife, and all of the great things that happened in those in years, but romy. My story really starts when I. Sit down the right book, which was a couple of years ago. Because that's when I let go of the. The baggage that's when I started the healing process as when I stopped white, knuckling everything in life
Minimum wage in Illinois, Cook County and Chicago increases take effect July 1
"In the recent past Illinois, does in fact have a budget to? To begin the fiscal year I'll be on. It is one it's dependent on. Borrowing is precariously. Allen's given the government revenues cookie, taking such a head during the corona virus pan-demic, and that brings us to the first law that I'm going to focus on the increase in the minimum wage is a major victory for lower income earners not so much for retailers. Gets a real kick in the teeth, frankly to every retailer in state of Illinois. Retail Merchants Association Rob. Card notes that it is the second hike in the state. Minimum wage that Illinois employers have had to factor into their expenses this year Illinois minimum wage rose by one dollar from eight, twenty, five to nine, twenty, five January now at such a go up my book every year until it reaches fifteen dollars in the year twenty twenty-five, those who work in the city of Chicago will reach that Mark. Faster Illinois new minimum. Minimum wage may be ten dollars an hour, but in the city it's now fourteen bucks up from thirteen in the rest of Cook County when the suburbs thirteen dollars up from twelve, there are some exceptions for smaller businesses for those who work on tips like restaurant servers. Employers will certainly appreciate employees that has will certainly appreciate those to their paychecks, but retailers say it was always going to be tough and especially so in the midst of a pandemic. We're dealing with record unemployment where dealing with retailers who are frankly hanging on If you worry a retail, I can apparel shop for example. Occupational at fifteen percent, fifty percent occupancy is not viable over the long term. We're talking. A lifeline hopefully goes to the next phase. It's buying time how anyone expects us to really get back on our feet. Rehire. Do any of those things that they would like to see us do when we're imposing? These kind of artificial cost is real question.
Tanner Chidester - How to Boost Revenue with High-Ticket Sales
"Let's start with is the basics. What is a high ticket sale so typically? It's anything sold over three thousand dollars. You know some might argue that it's a little less, but typically it's anything that sold over three thousand dollars, the example of a high ticket sulphur business could be one to one coaching session how to do a handstand how to write a book how to get in shape. How to build an audience, it could be any things of that nature, so there's a lot of different things that can happen. But for me. Specifically two things I did to really build a very large businesses was in the fitness niche where I held a lot of trainers. I've also helped a lot of fitness. People get in shape so losing weight building muscle, and I also help some general business consultant, so those are examples of what you can do for high ticket sales where you're helping with a very serious problem, and you're giving a very high level of service, so the reason high ticket sales are so great is. Is ultimately they generate a lot of revenue in very short amount of time. So since you're selling them more expensive offering, you can sell a much smaller amount to get your goal so as a new business owner. This is great because at the end of the day. If you WANNA make ten k. a month, it's a lot easier to sell two or three three thousand dollar plus steals versus selling a couple hundred fifty dollar deals right, and that's why this is so good, especially as a beginning. Person In business because you don't have a lot of skill, you don't have a big budget and you have very little experience, so you want to do something that allows you to make a lot of mistakes and still make a lot of income because at the beginning of a business. That's what's going to happen now again. The reason this is so great is easy for beginners to implement, so you can do. Do a hunting different things. You can do cold calling which highly don't recommend, but you could do it. The other way to really do is starting to message. People be facebook linked in or Instagram, so I literally built my high ticket business about fifty thousand dollars a month before I, ever ran any paid ads by simply hustling a messaging people. So what I always say is, is that the fastest way or Or most efficiently, absolutely not, it's kind of like door door cells, but does it work for sure so if someone came to you and said Hey, look if you're willing to message people for six to eight hours a day for the next five six months, and it could get you to seven figures a year. Would you do it? That's kind of the reality with this type of situation when you start, it's. It's not super exciting, and it can take a lot of work, but once you get a rolling. It's amazing. It's just crazy. How much more you can do once you back cash and that's kind of the point of it now. The other way is once you really are getting these leads, and you start making a little bit of money organically. The way you really implement in making more faster is to. Add, facebook ads to this or you bads I usually say facebook ads for beginner, because it tastes a little less skill to run, but once I had thought approach from messaging someone getting them to a phone call, and then selling them over the phone. It was just easy to start running. More ads get more of those customers because for business roaming more revenue, it really comes down to making more sales and for to get more sales, you more applications to phone calls and get more of those more leads. Something also understand if I forgot to mention is you're going to have to sell these over the phone? No one's going to buy three thousand dollars plus private without talking to human being just keep down night. Night, it's possible without a blitz very difficult, and it would take a very expert type marketer so the beginner get them on the phone. Call and sell that way so going back to ads. If you wanted to scale now that she was starting to get clients, how do you get more leads? One of the best ways to do that is with the facebook. Ads give an example of how this looks so maybe you spend a thousand dollars on ads, right? And you get a hundred leads for about ten bucks a pop, so ten dollar leads is not that great, and for those listeners who don't know what a lead is thing of that is getting e mail a phone number something of that nature right now once you have those leads X. amount will sign up for a phone call. Usually it's ten to twenty percent, so let's go with the lower amount. Let's say I have one. Hundred leads ten sign up for a phone call at ten phone calls. Three will cancel to won't show up, and then you can close usually three out of five if you're. You're a good closer. If you're bad closer, you may close to out of five either way if you spend a thousand dollars and close to deals at three grand, you just made five thousand dollars, so if you're able to rinse and repeat that process, it's very simple to see how someone who doesn't know a lot about business can scale very rapidly, and that's what happened to me. When I started I had a lot of skill in terms of fitness and coaching, but I didn't know this part of business, and once I figured it out. It was very easy to scale because I had an amazing fulfillment. So that is the next way is once you get the organic messaging down and you have a process where you're getting clients, you WanNa, take that money and dump it into ads because that's GonNa. Let you scale to the next level. Now

As Grocery Deliveries Soar, Startup Raises $10 Million to Unseat Giant Instacart
"As a result of COVID, nineteen instinct cart has become the Goliath of grocery delivery businesses as virus fears. Keep us out of grocery stores. We've been relying on food delivery mainly, INSTA- carts GIG workers called shoppers to keep a stocked up. This April INSTA- cart sales were five times greater than a year ago the Financial Times reported that I've popping growth hardly escaped. Investors Notice INSTA-. Cart raised another two hundred twenty five million dollars earlier this month that evaluation, approaching fourteen billion dollars. That's nearly double its valuation only eighteen months ago, perhaps needless to say instant carts thirty-three-year-old. A poor va mater is now a billionaire. But less you jump to the conclusion that Mehta can sit back and relax safe in his seat at the top of this rapidly growing industry. Thank again. A small startup called Ling is coming rich share of the grocery delivery business, though tiny compared to Insta- card investors are also taking notice last week dumpling raise six point five million dollars for a total of ten million dollars in funding so far founded in two thousand seventeen dumpling helps people create independent delivery businesses, the difference between shopping for instance card and dumpling is simple, but fundamental dumpling delivery workers own their own businesses Insta- cart workers are subcontractors paid by the shopping trip. Dumplings Co CEO's Joel. Shapiro Innate Danna make no bones about what motivated them to create dumpling. They felt sharing economy companies like Insta- card were treating workers on fairly so they created an APP that helps perspective entrepreneurs go into business for themselves to create a new business users pay a ten dollar fee for access to dumplings services and listing on the company's site where customers can search for shoppers. Bhai Zip Code. Shoppers paid dumpling a five dollar fee for each job or when they get busy enough switched to a monthly payment of thirty nine dollars. Dumplings model is not unlike Amazon's two year old partner delivery service, which also helps people start their own businesses in their case exclusively delivering Amazon packages supporters of the independent model say self employment in the delivery industry offers a number of advantages including higher revenue and insulation from the anti-god worker legislation that's cropping up all over the country so far fueled in part by the pandemic. The models seems to be working dumplings. Founders say customers or ordering twenty times more groceries than they were before in nineteen, and the company says it has helped. Two thousand people start their own delivery companies people. People like Kelly Vilchez in Orange County California. Vilchez operates under the business name shop girl. Oh, see. She told the L. A. Times that she's earning three to five thousand dollars a month. She's clearly a dumpling success story. According to the shop girl OC facebook page villages is featured in dumplings advertising campaign in contrast Insta- card has been plagued by shopper complaints since the onset of the coronavirus in March and April, many walked off the job, demanding better protection against Covid, nineteen higher tips and sick leave the Winston card initially claimed the strikes made no impact. Courts reporter Michelle Chang Rights. That's debatable on June. Fifteenth the Seattle. City Council voted unanimously to require that. GIG were companies like Insta- card and Grub pay their workers an extra two dollars and fifty cents hazard pay per order. That requirement is intended to last through the end of the COVID nineteen civil emergency declared by Seattle's mayor. Insecure has vowed a legal fight. Similar legislation is pending in Philadelphia New York and San Francisco Chang writes. It is these sorts of ills shortages of personal protective equipment, low pay and lack of sickly. The dumpling claimed self employment solves, but entrepreneurship isn't easy dumpling delivery workers have to do their own marketing and find their own customers, and they're on the hook. If grocery buyers failed to pay, which dumpling says is rare, that said any platform that helps the millions of unemployed grow their own wealth. Is appealing to investors, and it's interesting to note that dumplings mission says nothing specifically about the grocery business rather they say. We WanNA. Make dumpling trusted partner that helps anyone launched running grow their own service based business. Sure dumpling starting groceries. Be Questions. Where will they go next?
E-commerce Is Changing. Heres How to Prepare
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Neil, Patel and two and today we're GONNA discuss e commerce changing. Here's how to prepare. All, right I wasn't prepared to do this intro. To do the episode is so that's what's important. So ecommerce changing as a matter of fact shop advice dog is going through the roof right now. WanNa. Talk about comparing a lot of people right now. We have a guy on the growth accelerator do he's brushing it with his vice store, so if you're just starting out, I would. there's more bands, but there's for beginners to do. I'll just get started. Go shop fibers. Basic starting point I. Yeah and the thing with ECOMMERCE isn't Amazon right now? Like everyday is like black Friday or is that shop if I? was saying like everyday day is like Black Friday shocked by? It's just ridiculous. The big thing with ecommerce right now is you would have a lot a big set. It's an ECOMMERCE Amazons of the world selling everything, but what's doing really well right now is people to selling one product, and that's it may have your up sells down cells, but just like a one product e commerce store. You know I know someone who sells insoles for high heels and she's like yeah, I'll Outta high heel. Shoes are uncomfortable. She created better insoles for high heels and I think she's doing around like two hundred, thirty, two hundred forty thousand dollars a month in profit. Yeah I think so fashions coming back. What is fired luxury fashion? Not so much right? So I think what's important. There's link that I shared. If you Google, covid nineteen within I think you should be defined this. Basically, it's numbers around how ECOMMERCE is performing right also co Van Dyke Jane. Within DOT CO and have been for the retail sales, so you can see where trends are right now and what I would say is. If you're E congress in terms of how to prepare, what would you say? People need to do Neil for people that are a little more established right now. The big thing is make sure that you have your inventory. I think if you don't have a good supply chain and you don't have a ton of inventory going. You could end up. Getting screwed the other big thing with ECOMMERCE. If you're trying to adapt your goal is you're trying to maintain right, or is it to grow grow? The other thing that I would do is if you're ECOMMERCE is spend a lot of money on conversion optimization. There's way too many people that are spending time trying to figure out a new AD channels figuring out new creatives instead just focusing on. Hey, how do I maximize conversion by my downfalls might funnels, so I can scale from one hundred to two hundred three hundred. Because if you don't have that, funnel right over time. It's already proven you. You know other than co bid that adds continually rise, even during a recession I think covered was a rare circumstance because you had a lot of people had a shutdown, because business couldn't have people but I would really focus on commercial optimization, because it's pretty much guarantee just like taxes that Google ads on facebook. ADS ARE GONNA, go up a year from now and getting more expensive three years from now even more expensive five years from now. Yep any related to emerge. Read. Optimization is talking on my your funnel to so in the last episode talk about having a one time offer or or bump on her pages, so the most important thing I think at least to me or one of those things is making sure your supply chain lockdown amateur. It does matter how much you scale your ads, but as you have that lockdown, you're driving people. They by the. Thank you. Page you another offer right there and then. Maybe there was another offer right after again. Cleveland's doesn't really good with this, but I think. Think a lot of people in the e-commerce world. You're not taking as much advantage as they could be. The say to is so I. Remember I bought a bustle records just to cut up. You know, be safe if back, wait, but silver coins They're actually Tori. If you're out of inventory, they actually do. Would you like the texture lower back? We have inventory yet, so I thought that was really Nice I'm pretty sure there's a fly out. I appreciate it must be on platforms must also that was helpful and came back and it was a big burden. Yeah and then the other thing, too is think subscriptions ECOMMERCE. It's been around there for a long time, but a lot of products that you sell. People constantly need when I get him to subscribing to the Senate products so ECOMMERCE business and turn it into subscription. Kind of like a Chewy I think to offer subscriptions and even Amazon does as well versus just selling people something one off especially if they continue need your product like bursts bursts offers really amazing fos I don't know if you use the Eric.

"We'll call. You're of course US currency. Have you ever met bills from other parts of the world? I did actually meet a Canadian dollar once. Yeah, he was in the wallet for a little while. It was a really awkward I thought it was I I was excited. 'cause like been always just around American currency, and I was like Oh. My Gosh, it just felt so exotic to have. To have a Canadian in there But it was not a great thing and I. Do I have to say I do kind of blame myself, but I I wasn't trying to. We're both ten dollars. But I was just trying to think I got a little too deep into global economics with them and I was trying to explain that. Even though he's ten dollars, he's not worth as much as me. Which even saying that out loud just does Jerky I think it would be hard to here. Yeah, it's not nice and I tried to buy it back by saying you know, but things could change imports exports. You know and maybe one day you'll be worth more than me. But at that point. He was totally shut down. Can I ask? Did he have the smell? And I really WanNa talk about that. She here resident actress speaking hi is Dina N-. Deans talking right now? Okay cool by. Dean there you. Do you have a few minutes? Right? Now are sure do. So I see you wrote an article for the Canadian Press in twenty thirteen. The headline is due Canada's new plastic. Bills Smell like maple syrup. Can. You just tell me basically what was going on there? Well Canada introduced a new series of plastic bills in two thousand eleven, and the first bill to come on the scene was a hunt. The hundred dollar bill which was released in twenty eleven, and I noticed as a reporter I noticed on social media, a lot of chatter about These bills had peculiar smell. Some people had this idea that that they had somehow been impregnated with Smell of Maple Syrup. So I just found that kind of odd. I I did get hold of one and I fought for everything I did I could not get it to smell like maple, syrup or anything else for that matter. But This belief was so strong on social media that I I wondered whether the were of the currency which is in candidates, the Bank of Canada that's responsible whether they had gotten any kind of correspondence from ordinary Canadians, but it and it turned out. I used our access to information. Act to get that correspondent. It turns out. There was a lot a lot of correspondent saying. You know I'm having. A dispute with my wife. She doesn't think they smell like Maple Syrup and I do. Can you resolve it for us or? Where do I scratch it to get the smell? But I should say the Bank of Canada absolutely denies that there was anything put in that bill, no impregnation of any smell of any kind. So you've filed an access information. We in the United States. We have the freedom of information. Act, I guess it's the same thing In the process of doing that, are you? Are you like writing a letter that says I WANNA. Know everything all correspondence relating to the possible smell of Maple Syrup on our currency. Is Pretty much exactly that. It was a guess on my part, but sure enough. The bank had tons of correspondence that they refused to release to me initially by the way I had to fight to get them do it. They're really they're trying to keep the LID on the maple. Syrup conspiracy. Yeah, so so okay, so the Bank of Canada firmly denies it. You've never experienced it yourself, but you. You've read correspondence from hundreds of people who insist that was the case. your your best guess of an explanation for what's happening. Power of suggestion you know somebody. Somebody posts something on. Social Media. And you know these things just move at the speed of light, and and it just catches on. You know it's a kind of a strange phenomenon. Yeah! I. Mean we read so much about conspiracy theories? that. The the idea that the Canadian currency is centered like Maple Syrup is I think the most harmless kind of kindest? Conspiracy I've ever heard. I think you're right. I did so benign. Conspiracy theory that's. You know not hurting anybody right it's it's It's not disparaging anybody. It's just it's just kind of fun. That's that's it. You know just kind of fun..
