Saying "No!" To Social Media for Business
Each week our agency visits with business owners, managers and marketing people that continue to resist using social/new media for their business. Today I'll share with you the reason and why we think it's a bad choice.
When Social/New Media Goes Wrong
What one person may think is funny another will find it offensive. We'll show you an example from KGAN - CBS 2 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and give you several key tips to avoid ticking off your customers.
New TV Show - Bike People
This weekend Iowa Public Television aired the first peek at Bike People a new show about the world of bicycling, Iowa and the people who are involved in the sport. My friend Forrest Ridgway, owner of Bike World, thought this would be a neat way to share with others what goes on in bicycling. He and Suzet along with friend Brian Duffy were part of the premiere. We'll show a clip and share some thoughts.
The Business of Politics
Running for public office may not seem tough or like a business...but it is. Today, in studio, we'll visit with Desmund Adams who ran for the Iowa State Senate in District 22 and Susan Judkins who ran for the Iowa House in District 43. Our goal is not to discuss politics but the "business of politics". What goes on behind the scenes when a person commits themselves to a life in the spotlight. We'll talk about the decisions, the time and the issues that face any person who seeks to serve the public in an elected office.
Worst Ad of the Week
Staying with politics for a moment...we present to you, in the closing segment the "Worst Ad of the Week". You have been warned.
