Businesses Behind Bars with Chris Redlitz

5 years ago, Chris Redlitz walked into San Quentin prison for the first time. He came out a changed man...luckily only 3 hours later. The serial entrepreneur and technology visionary had reluctantly visited to speak to inmates about entrepreneurship, but the passion he witnessed in that room convinced him to start The Last Mile, a business and technology incubator inside San Quentin, the oldest prison in California. On Innovation Crush, Chris walks us through his passion, personal transformation, the differences between incarcerated entrepreneurs and free businessmen...oh, and that one time he sailed from California to Hawaii.

Social Media Inflation Index

"Call it social media inflation. Nominally, you may have a lot more followers this year — but if your audience growth didn’t outpace the competition or the industry average, then the value of your social audience likely depreciated.

Sure, some brands grow “smarter” than others. Sweepstakes and giveaways, for example, might result in more followers, but are less likely to convert “likes” into loyal customers. But without historical and competitive context, reporting on follower growth is an empty, self-congratulatory exercise.

Enter the 2016 Social Media Inflation Index. We used the TrackMaven digital analytics software platform to analyze a sample of 26,965 brands across all industries. The results, presented in the summary graph below, display the median monthly follower growth percentage per brand on five major social networks — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest — across 2015."

Just how good is your growth? As more people join social networks worldwide, is the value of your brand audeince depreciating?

What is Culture Track?

"Culture Track is the largest tracking study focused exclusively on the ever-changing attitudes and behaviors of U.S. cultural consumers, as well as the trends in attendance and the motivators and barriers that affect participation. It has been fielded six times since 2001.

Culture Track 2014 is the product of over a decade of LaPlaca Cohen’s research and dedication to producing a current, highly-actionable resource for the leading cultural institutions across the nation.

The 2014 edition of Culture Track arrives at a pivotal moment for cultural organizations nationwide. Audience behaviors and expectations are changing rapidly, driven by ever-multiplying and diversifying options for spending leisure time, and by technology developments that are fundamentally altering the way we interface with our world. The implications for cultural institutions are significant and, without close study, difficult to determine." [Introduction p. 1]

LaPlaca Cohen worked in partnership with research firm Campbell Rinker to field Culture Track 2014. The study was conducted using a nationwide online survey with 4,026 respondents, representing all 50 states. Respondents were U.S. residents ages 18 or over who were double-confirmed for interest in cultural events and attendance to at least one cultural activity in the past year. The study defines cultural participation as attendance to a specific range of cultural activities, such as museums/art exhibits, theater, music, file festival, opera, zoos, botantical gardents, and more.

Predict This!

Video

Under the alias of Dr. Data, Eric Siegel, Ph.D., founder of Predictive Analytics World and author of the popular and critically acclaimed "Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie or Die," today released the first known rap video about predictive analytics in existence.

While nerdcore and other sub-genres of hip hop may tread upon niche topics, “PREDICT THIS!” is the first pop song to feature infotainment value via legitimate academic/tech content with Gangnam Style (from Psy) humor, and media-blending 80’s throwback visuals.

Featuring green-screen technology, a faux TED talk, and choreographed dance routines featuring "sexy geeks," the video aims to spread the word about both the power of prediction: nerds are the new cool, data is the new oil, and predictive analytics is the latest evolutionary step of the Information Age.

When asked to comment, Dr. Siegel said, "I only answer to 'Dr. Data' now." After we apologized, the award-winning author graced us with, "Look, I’ve dropped my iPhone a million times. But today I dropped a rap video for the very first time." Siegel then muttered something about his friends and family suggesting he not quit his day job.

Are You Pricing Dynamically?

Dynamic Pricing is All the Rage
Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Dynamic pricing involves adjusting prices as patterns of demand unfold, raising prices and/or increasing the amount of inventory at particular prices when demand is strong.  Some organisations also use dynamic pricing to reduce prices to stimulate sales when there is strong demand at lower prices, but little demand at higher prices.  In either case, planning your changes in advance is key to a successful strategy, but more importantly a strategy focused on dynamic pricing alone misses much of the potential opportunity to be realised from pricing.

What is a Local Arts Agencies

The nation’s 4,500 Local Arts Agencies (LAAs) promote, support, and develop the arts at the local level ensuring a vital presence for the arts throughout America’s communities. LAAs are diverse in their makeup—they have many different names and embrace a spectrum of artistic disciplines. But each LAA, in its own way, works to sustain the health and vitality of the arts and artists locally, while also striving to make the arts accessible to all members of a community. Each LAA in America is unique to the community that it serves and each evolves within its community—no two LAAs are exactly alike in name, programming or even mission. The infographic below will help you learn more about LAAs so that you can identify the LAAs that serve your community.

This infographic provides an overview of what Local Arts Agencies are, how they are funded, and how they serve their communities.
