The Three. Le Trois. El Tres

Happy FriYaY!

There’s no email newsletter on Monday because it’s MLK day.

Here are the three articles that caught my eye!

I love you all!

P.S. Write down your thoughts on a piece of paper.

Stay at home workout

An article (it’s behind the WSJ.com paywall) to help you pick the paint colors you need for your bedroom gym (black or green might work): Link

P.S. Go for a walk if it’s nice outside (50-60 minutes). You need the fresh air and vitamin D. Or if it’s going to snow on the weekend, shovel the snow at a slow and steady pace.

Fun fact

Flies are hard to swat out of the air (if the fly is sitting on a window inside your home, try this: use a small open yogurt container and a piece of paper. Place the container over the fly. Slide the paper underneath it. Wrap the paper around the opening. Release the fly outside) because they have shortened hind wings that allows them to take off faster: Link

Twitch focus group

The best way to target the gaming audience? (1) hang out with them using Twitch and (2) start creating specific product(s) for them. In this case, crowdsourcing a car design: Link

Email gift cards

I can pay and email Netflix gift cards starting at $25 to my friends who use Netflix. If they have a DisneyPlus subscription? Nothing (it’s for new subscribers). This isn’t going to end well (that’s technology’s advantage over the entertainment industry. They make it easy to help non-subscribers help their friends and family who subscribe to their service). Need proof? Here’s the link to the DisneyPlus e-mail gift card program.

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.
