I recently wrote a piece about the web app dollareighty.com, and how it can really help expedite your social media strategy, particularly when it comes to Instagram.  The main goal is that you're leaving your "two cents" on posts that are within your niche or brand, but nothing "spammy." Actual, meaningful posts.  Listen in for more, and how this might be able to help you.Also, the podcast has a new website!  I'm really excited about its initial features and launch, with more to come down the road!  Finally, I'd like to ask are there more topics you'd like to hear about?  How can I help you?  Contact us and let us know!  Have a great weekend!

Usually there a couple things that go together with the Super Bowl. Food and ads. In recent years, Super Bowl ads have come under fire for being lame and boring, with only a select few making the cut of being memorable. So in today’s episode, I would like to pose the question, have the ads lost their way from a creative standpoint? Or is it because our attention spans have evolved, and thus marketers have tried to do the same?  On Instagram, I shared the quote, “marketing is enthusiasm transferred to the customer.” I am curious to know what you think about this, especially if you are in business or marketing. Or even if you’re a general consumer, what marketing techniques work to get you excited about a product or service? What has been successful for you and your business or product? If you’re listening on the Anchor app, be sure to leave a voice message with your thoughts, or send an email to matt@script-notes.com and would love to feature your take in a future episode! On the site this week, I shared a post about tips for making sure your car remains in top shape for winter, as well as some additional ways you can pad your Acorns account. As a reminder, if you would like to consider becoming a friend of the show, and receiving a subsequent shout out, please consider our Listener Support feature!  Make sure to follow along on social on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as deals and savings will be shared there that don't always make it to the site or podcast in time due to being time sensitive!Have a great week!

Stock-ing Stuffer Ideas

Stock-ing Stuffer Ideas

2018-12-2300:10:44

While the shipping deadline for online shopping might have come and gone by now for Tuesday, there's still one idea available that could be the gift that keeps on giving.  Remember the days of giving paper stock certificates?  Gone are those days (for the most part), and now with the digital age, we have Stockpile. From their About Us page:  A few Christmases ago, our founder, Avi, thought it would be neat to give his nieces and nephews some stock in their favorite companies instead of more stuff. But the ones he wanted to give — Apple and Google — were too pricey, and the process was such a hassle that he gave up and bought more toys. He couldn’t get the idea out of his mind, though, and figured there had to be a way. And that’s how Stockpile was born. If you are interested in getting started with $5 of stock, just shoot me an email at matt@script-notes.com, and I'll gladly refer you!   Also, gift cards to just about anywhere can make great last minute ideas.  Websites like Raise.com can offer a great way to do some last minute saving on gift cards.  I would also recommend checking out Amazon for gift card ideas as well as Gift Card Granny. Certainly as a shameless plug, if there's a Dad in your family you could use another t-shirt, we have a great offering as well. As this will probably be the last episode until after Christmas, I would like to wish everyone out there a very happy holiday, Merry Christmas, and may you share the gifts of love and joy, and feel them as well. Remember, giving presence is the best gift of all.   Thank you as always for listening!
