Do you Insta Cop?

  • How to be prepared for the Black Friday/Cyber Monday season, including some horror stories from past years
  • ECommerce itself is gamified. ECommerce best practices tend to point to how do we become more persuasive? How do we appeal to our basest of instincts like FOMO?
  • We will be publishing a Future Commerce trade show and conference guide to assist in all of your “Which shows do I go to and why?” questions and needs, so stay tuned
  • Brian has more Marshall McLuhan to talk about, which reminded him of our big announcement
  • Our big announcement is that we are publishing a 240-page journal called Archetypes, and it’s going to blow your mind 
  • Plus we are launching Archetypes at a live event centered around art and performance, including modern dance, on December 1 in Miami, FL (wait until you see the merch!)
  • Phillip is loving the brand Teenage Engineering on every level
  • Any generational brand becomes what's relevant and they find product market fit and then they find the generational brand culture fit much later in their journey
  • The guys share a little “remember when” about how hard it was to get a site back up when it crashed back in the old days
