The Izze video I took with my iPhone went viral on YouTube (did you see it?) Finally I received a report back from Pepsi, who own Izze, and they acknowledged that a tiny airhole in the can caused the contents to go mouldy. Ewww, nasty. Well, we finally got to the bottom of what the nasty substance was in the Izze can.
Our viewer question in this episode is all about whether to self-publish a book, or go the traditional route of seeking an arrangement with a publisher. Have you been down that road? If so, share your experience below.
I have a nifty click resource for you to help you find in stock tech items, it was handy when I recently needed to get a new iMac.
The BIG marketing lesson is from James Bond 007. The most recent movie, Skyfall is awesome, did you see it? And the marketers promoting the movie did a masterful job (how’s that for alliteration)? I’ll discuss it with you at the end of this episode.
