We’re live. John starts the conversation with a nostalgia train remembering the founding members of Entreprogrammers, also that intro needs to changed LOL.

 

In other topics, chuck is experimenting with his podcast audience and it’s looking for advice from Jhon looking for the best possible outcome.

 

John is actually going through some employee changes, training process, etc. Getting new blood and analyzing what the next step for Simple Programmer will be.

 

Thought of the week:

 

John - “There’s a slow point when you have to refactor your way out”

We’re Live. John and Mani are currently doing a promotion together through the Simple Programmer Channel, testing different approaches to the current market right now.

 

Turns Out Upsell is working less than expected, which at the moment is really not a bad thing, they are testing the market at the moment so it’s basically a calculated risk. It’s not actually bad but it could definitely be better.

 

Strategies need to be refresh in order for any of this to work, they have an interesting conversation on many possible outcomes and paths they can take.

 

Thought of the week:

 

Mani - “ Leads to Market are not always very impactful”

May 12, 2020

We’re Live. Recently Chuck and John did a small partnership helping out Chuck with some sales using the Simple Programmer Audience, and it worked.

 

Not only worked, but it also did pretty well. 50-50 share and both parties got a nice chunk. But now comes the step, pull up the next step strategy, and look forward to keeping those numbers.

 

Chuck has some ideas, Mani and John offered him solid guidance on the matter.

 

Thought of the week:

 

John - “ IT is always got to improve the strategy, just make sure it is always profitable”

May 5, 2020

 

We’re Live. Great news from the guys. All points out that recent strategies are working on bringing sales home. People are constantly online these days. Chuck made a few alterations on one of his sites design-wise and had a big sales uprising in just one week.

 

John has been applying new strategies as well, and they are working better than expected.

Lots of new stuff that did not work in the past are currently working on this new sales environment.

 

There’s a big room for new ideas and improvement, it’s time to take the calculated risks.

 

Thought of the week:

 

John - “All you need to do is stick to your plan”
