Insight on Business with Michael Libbie is a show dedicated to offering up news and tips on advertising, marketing and consumer trends. Along the way we interview interesting business people, reporters and people making a difference in the business community here and worldwide. You can watch live or catch the rebroadcast here at Webcast One LIVE. Today we dial it into the Des Moines Area with Metro Monday...but no matter where you are...we promise you'll learn something that you can use in your business...starting today. Let's go:
We've talked about Gusto Pizza Co. of Des Moines several times
How a group of people who understood the power of good food, excellent service and digital communication got together to create a new restaurant in Des Moines. What we think was proof...for the doubters...was that on Saturday night Gusto Pizza Co. had a "soft open" which had only been shared via New Media. Did it work? We were there; and here's the video. I'll add some commentary.
Did I mention they spent ZERO on print, television, radio, fliers, handouts...ZERO. Will it last? We think so...but they, and we, know you've got to work it.
The IowaWinterDeathStorm2011 Part One
Will it...come? That's the question today...as weather-casters across the Metro ramp up their Doppler Images, scan the horizon and regularly blurt out warnings and watches. Weather...it's big business in Iowa. Folks in other parts of the country marval at how we've made it such a cash cow for broadcasters. We'll talk about it.
Iowa Power Farming Show - This Week
Even in Des Moines agriculture is...king. I know, hip, trendy folks will turn their nose up but how may of them are running a multi-million dollar business with multi-million dollar investments in land, equipment and inputs? Nearly...zero. Enter the Farmer. Starting tomorrow the Iowa - Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association will open the doors at the fifth largest all indoor farm equipment machinery show in the nation. Here in...Des Moines. We'll tell you about it.
Todd Razor from the Business Record
Todd is a return guest to Insight on Business and we'll be talking about commercial real estate. Months ago we told you it was the "next shoe" to drop. Millions of empty square feet of commercial real estate dot the metro. What's the answer? What does the future hold? What has the Business Record learned and where does commercial real estate go...from here. We'll talk about that and several other interesting stories today as Todd Razor joins us with Insight on Business.
