The Three. Le Trois. El Tres


Happy FriYaY!

Here are the three articles that caught my eye!

I love you all!

Have a great weekend!



P.S. If you’re building a business, followers on social media aren’t the same as customers.


Stay at home workout

If it’s nice, go outside for a walk, chat with your neighbor (maintain the 6 feet/2 meter social distancing rule), re-fill your bird bath or if you have a backyard, patio and furniture, sit in the backyard. And listen to nature (the same applies if you live in a condo or apartment. Go onto your balcony).

Bonus article: it takes 66 days to create a new habit. Fitness wise, a lot of you are downloading fitness apps. Or joining live, online fitness groups. I can guarantee that 100% of you won’t be going back to the gym when it re-opens. And you’ll continue to use your app/online group to do your workouts:

Fitness apps see 67% jump in installs during pandemic


It could be in aisle 3…

The top three reasons why there’s a paper towel shortage during this pandemic (article is behind a paywall):

  1. JIT (Just In Time) deliveries (from the manufacturer -> store regional warehouse -> store)
  2. It takes years to build a new plant and
  3. It’s expensive to keep things in a warehouse.

Why Are There Still Not Enough Paper Towels


Pandemic pods

If you’re in marketing, you need to be aware of this.


Because many generations are living together.

And you’ll have to budget some money to create the services they’ll need (eg: the Peloton Family Plan or Netflix’s Premium Plan (four people can watch Netflix at the same time)):

It’s about the video clips

Technology’s impact on the entertainment world?

The ability of a TV/cable/sports show etc to create a video clip(s). So it can go viral on social media (because you need options in case you don’t have time to watch your favorite show):

‘Video highlights will be more valuable than live rights,’ says WarnerMedia VP

Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
