Welcome back to our daily, live 90-minute radio/tv show dealing with advertising, marketing, consumer trends and best business practices! Insight on Business is part of Des Moines Local...LIVEand can be heard Monday - Thursday starting at 12:30PM Central. Here is the show from today, text below:
On the show today we'll have veteran farm broadcaster Ken Root in studio talking about marketing to farmers and people who are connected in the "food chain". We'll discuss why "city folks" need to pay attention to what is going on and why more seem to be engaged in watching where food comes from and where it is grown. We'll also touch on the state of broadcast radio and what is happening with local programing issues and who, in the end, gets the "short stick".
Join us today...as we talk media with a guy who knows it from the ground up...Ken Root.
In other stories...
I caught some flack over an article I wrote this past Sunday for the Des Moines Register and our agency blog. Here is that article...we'll talk about it.
Also...while we're on the agency side of things....here are some questions you might want to ask yourself about loads of things...before the end of the year.
Mixed reactions regarding the Christmas Shopping Season from retail. We'll talk a bit about what you might want to consider doing...before first quarter 2009. Yep, it's retail based.
