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. Today, your blood, sweat, and tears are not enough to keep your business afloat.” He continues, “What does this mean for you as an entrepreneur? You need to adapt.”

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: If Weather Affects Hiring Now, Wait For Climate Change To Get Worse

It’s never a good idea to take a single data point and extract from it. The latest federal jobs report is an example. Only 20,000 new jobs this month, the smallest number since September 2017, when hurricanes battered the country and a number of its territories, like Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Most people won’t be working when winds could lift them up and throw them, their car, and lord knows what else through the air. When floods pick buildings up from their foundations and carry them away and entire areas are devastated.

February job gains were particularly poor when compared to January’s 311,000. One reason that economists have offered is the difference in weather. January was relatively mild, allowing an unexpected expansion, even as so many were furloughed from the federal government during the shutdown. February, for those who forget too soon, was quite cold for much of the country.
