Acceler8Success Cafe is Your Daily Resource About Entrepreneurship & Business Ownership!

In this midweek, Hump Day edition of Acceler8Success Cafe the focus is on podcasting and digital marketing. As an entrepreneur, do you know all you need to know about what the digital world has to offer? Well, whether you do or don’t, our objective is to help you take one more step up the ladder. Certainly, learning more couldn’t possibly hurt, right?

In the article, Why Every Entrepreneur Needs to be Savvy in Digital Marketing in Order to Survive, the author, Neil Patel starts off, “Entrepreneurship has evolved. There used to be a time where you could open up a local business in town and turn a hefty profit with hard work, dedication, and financial management skills.

Y Combinator Bets on the Booming Podcast Industry

Podcasts are exploding in popularity and Y Combinator,  the startup accelerator known for its long list of unicorn graduates, is throwing its support behind a business tackling the podcast monetization problem. Among its latest and largest-ever cohort is Brew, a subscription-based app complete with original content.

Though Brew’s founders, Jijo Sunny, Madhavan Ramakrishnan, Aleesha John and Joseph Sunny, call Brew the “Netflix  for podcasts,” the app differs from Luminary, which made headlines with the same tagline and a $100 million roundearlier this month. Luminary, which hasn’t yet launched, will similarly operate under a subscription model, charging $8 a month for access to its podcasts.

FEATURED ARTICLE: Beware this 1 red flag personality trait. Harvard study says they can bleed you – and your money – dry

We all know at least person in the office who possesses all the traits of a toxic co-worker (i.e., they’re lazy, acts superior to others, loves to gossip, etc.).
