Insight On Business the News Hour

Marketing for Business - Episode 18 - The Death of Local Restaurants?

It's Marketing for Business Episode 18 and my co-host Phil K. James from Good Milkshake Digital is worried. He is worried that if locally owned restaurants (or really any locally owned business) doesn't take advantage of connecting with consumers by telling stories they are doomed because the "Big Guns" with all the money and all the social media experience are going to take them down. Sobering right? In this segment we talk about how a baseball team when from being lousy to the best without spending lots of money but knowing the data.

Each week Michael partners with Phil K. James from Good Milkshake Digital in Marketing for Business - Episode 17. Here we start out talking about "first cars". Fun stuff. Then get into Musical.ly which started out as an social media project aimed at Tweens and has quickly become a huge platform launching several careers. We also talk about how Facebook just ripped Musical.ly off and created Lip Sync Live with some additional features. That is the article from Tech Crunch. The launch is not platform wide...just yet.

We then talk about the start of Mars Cafe based in the Drake Neighborhood it was something Phil and his brother created with zero experience in the restaurant industry. How they marketed and what MySpace was to them at that time. Fun stuff in this segment with a shoutout to Gary Vee

The Iowa Business Journals and The Advisor

We sit down for a relaxing conversation with Jolene Goodman from the Iowa Business Journals and she surprises me with something called The Advisor that is being published on a weekly basis in several communities in the Greater Des Moines Metro. We kick things off moaning about how so many small business people don't have the time to really dig into marketing and advertising and often make choices that do not reflect their customer base.
