In February 2017, Norman Pattiz announced the results of a comprehensive research detailing the advertising results of five products and services from five different brands. The study had the aim of establishing how podcast advertising affected the sale of goods and services, a brand’s reputation, and customer feedback. The study was the first of its genre and began in the second half of 2016. Norman commented that using podcast over the traditional advertising channels gave products and brands an upper hand on the market.
The vice president of Edison Research mirrored Norman’s comments and stated that his team was appreciative to team up with PodcastOne and the five brands. Edison Research partnered with PodcastOne to analyze the effect of podcast marketing for brands. They used products that vary in exposure, with some having a well-known brand name in comparison to others. Before the campaign, Edison conducted surveys to establish each product’s popularity and compared the results with a similar survey after the campaign.
The study’s statistics also show that 47 percent of people had more awareness of financial services products’ after the campaign. Awareness for the automobile fair increased by 37 percent and 24 percent for the lawn and garden products. One-third of respondents commenting on the motor products revealed their interest in a specific product, which was an increase from the pre-campaign data which indicated only 18 percent had an interest in the particular product. The pre-campaign data specified that 16 percent of listeners would purchase a designated lawn and garden product. After the advert, the percentage rose to 22. Respondents interested in casual dining restaurants increased by 76 percent after the campaign.
Norman Pattiz serves as the founder and chief executive officer of PodcastOne. He set up the network in collaboration with Kit Gray after quitting his job at Westwood One.

Fabletics is a brand that has grown from strength to strength in a very short period. The company started as an innovative venture in an otherwise highly competitive fashion retail space, already dominated by giants like Amazon, but Fabletics managed to stand out with confidence. It is all because how the company made and followed marketing and business strategies, all the right ones and at the right times. First of all, Kate Hudson being one of the co-owners helped the brand get an identity in a market that is highly influenced by modern names and celebrities. Kate Hudson is already a famous Hollywood actress and a fitness role model for many.
Secondly, Fabletics has a fantastic subscription model wherein the customers can join as a VIP member and get a lot of perks. Not only the customers would get discounts and invitations to preview sales and other offers from time to time, but the customers would also be able to choose from a personalized collection of athleisure products every month. Fabletics emails all its customers each month, and the VIP members just need to check their email and choose what they like, with the option of skipping any month they want without being charged for their month.
The best part is that even though Fabletics is a mainstream athleisure brand, the price range of its products are relatively less and does not cost a bomb, which is the case with all other bigger brands out there.
One other reason why Fabletics has been able to make it huge in the fashion retail space is by following the reverse showroom technique. The company through its subscription model and other offers and activities has built a relationship with its customers. It means that the brand is not afraid of opening showrooms anymore, and is already an established brand.
In many other cases, customers would just visit showrooms, check out the products and then buy somewhere else, but it is not the case with Fabletics as most of the customers walking into Fabletics’s 18 stores across the country are either already VIP members or are highly interested potential clients. The companies offer lifestyle quiz at its website, and it is a must for every woman interested in joining Fabletics as a member.
George Soros is an American Citizen who traces his origin in Hungary and is also one of the richest men in the world today. In 2006, his overall rank was number seventy-one on the billionaire’s list. Presently, his net worth is valued to be more than seven billion dollars, a fortune that he has made from Hedge Funds. Besides, George is a married man and has had the chance to father five children. Soros was born at a time when people from his nationality were getting persecuted. For this reason, he fled Hungary for London. It is in London that he secured employment as a railway porter and waiter; jobs that helped him get enough money to enroll at the London School of Economics. Later on, George got employed as a financier at a merchant bank. Since George was good at saving, he was able to set aside a lot of money that eventually enabled him to set up the Hedge Fund, an organization that has amassed his billions of dollars over the years. Later on, the Hedge Fund faced branding changes into what is known today as the Quantum Fund.
Presently, George is the founder of the Soros Fund Management, an organization that boasts of over thirty billion dollars in assets. Besides being a stout businessman, George Soros also has an interest in politics and philanthropy. When it comes to politics, Mr. Soros provides political donations to Democratic Party candidates, so as to help facilitate their campaigns. He has also founded the Open Society Foundation; an institution meant to streamline government forces so that they do not get the upper hand and start oppressing the citizens. Also, the Open Society Foundation has been instrumental in helping drug addicts’ deal with substance abuse. Improvement of health care systems has also been a priority for the Open Society Foundation under George’s leadership. For this reason, he has invested heavily in education, especially for children from low-income families and people with disabilities.
Besides, George has also extended his helping hand to migrants and refugees. Since the above groups of individuals are usually financially constrained, George helps stabilize their businesses by offering them financial training and aid. In his view, Soros feels that when minority groups gain assistance to make something meaningful from their lives, then the host countries get to benefit from their productivity. It is only recently that George Soros offered five hundred million dollars to help migrants and refugees make something meaningful out of their lives.

It is imperative for employees to plan the nature of lives they want to lead after exiting employment on wsj.com. They should develop a keen interest in social securities as a way of saving for their retirement.
Notably, a small number of Financial Distribution Organization clients think and plan for their retirement. David in conjunction with Nationwide Financial Retirement Institute conducted research to establish reasons for having an insignificant number of customers considering social securities. The survey targeted the people who went on retirement less than ten years ago as well as the consumers.
The research concluded that a majority of the advisors shy away from talking to clients about social securities at https://www.nationwide.com/about-us/040114-nf-new-mobile-app.jsp. Besides, the investigation revealed that a significant number of customers were willing to replace their advisors with others who are capable and willing to talk about social security.
The investigators on Finra realized that advisors might be lacking interest in social securities, as the topic is complex.
Clients that do not have social security lose over $300,000 in a span of 25 years. The benefit consumes close to 40% of the clients’ income. Therefore, it is paramount for advisors and their clients to develop an interest in the social securities since this is the only way they can maximize retirement income.
