Stuff to DO with Cityview and Jeff Pitts!

Lordy, lordy...he's back!  Jeff Pitts from Cityview has been gone from our Friday "Stuff to DO" briefing as the staff from Cityview took some COVID19 time off.  Now the crew is back on duty and here Jeff rejoins us as we talk about stuff to do online...like an online film festival from our friends at the Interrobang Film Festival. Or how about an opera from Des Moines Metro Opera. And, nope, not in Italian but in French!  Those things and much more.  Enjoy, have a laugh or two...you deserve it.

However, recent changes in Facebook require more than just simple posting. Here I offer up some statistics of what seems to work...well...when it comes to content and consumer content. Next month Phil K. James from Good Milkshake Digital will join me to dive into more Marketing4Business. For now you get to listen to me prather on... Here you go!
