The Windsor-Essex County Region is dealing with an alarming epidemic. Windsor is going against the grain of the national trend on pandemic recovery, posting the highest rate of unemployment among major cities for September. The unemployment rate for the Census Metropolitan Area that includes Windsor and some of Essex County is 10.4 per cent as of September, according to Statistics Canada estimates released earlier this month. That's down slightly from 10.6 in August. The number of unemployed people in Windsor area remains 4,100 higher than pre-pandemic according to CBC News. Therefore, it begs the question, what's the key to reversing the trend and cultivating an economic recovery in the Rose City? Rakesh Naidu is the CEO and President of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce and he joined me this week, to discuss Windsor's economic climate, the region's economic recovery, and how it will affect individuals with disabilities moving forward, in their pursuit of employment. As we observe National Disability Employment Awareness Month this October.

The Modernity of Site SearchWe recount Brian's visit to Aime Leon Dore's flagship store in Soho, talk about the store design, the need for physical retail for “anchoring” the ultimate vision of a brand.We contrast the store design of ALD with another Soho shopping experience: Shinola. The future of digital requires having a physical experience. Brian's ALD experience will likely drive future digital purchases.We're in a brave new world of being introduced to brands. Price doesn't matter anymore. User accessibility is what's important. “In-store is the next frontier for digital.”- BrianThere is still a lot of opportunity to optimize the experience for shoppers, if stores are able to create a seamless instore and online experience there would be a lot more growth.GroupBy's Roland Gossage joins the show to talk about the past, present, and future of customer journey orchestration, and the tools that help us do that today. The GroupBy Product Discovery Platform powered by Google Cloud Retail AI drives the world's most relevant and highly converting eCommerce websites. In the beginning days of eCommerce, it was all about working to create an online experience and seeing it would work. Now, twenty years later, the game has changed.“80% of clients who hit a website that have a poor user experience are likely to never return. So the stakes are much higher.” -RolandThe market is ready for a plunge. It's getting bigger and better. Bringing in new waves of technology helps all parts of the market. “The old analogy was garbage in, garbage out and that still exists today. We realized upfront that we had to solve the data problem first. So we had to create the golden record.” -RolandAssociated Links:The Twitter post of Brian's shirt from Aime Leon DoreLearn more about Roland Gossage, and GroupBy Inc.Get our latest report: Nine by NineSubscribe to InsidersListen to our other episodes of Future Commerce Have any questions or comments about the show?

Throughout the years, Walmart has brought the idea of the superstore to life. Its name is ubiquitous, most Americans live within eight miles of a Walmart, and within the store, you can find everything from groceries to automotive services to custom paint production. Seriously, there is very little that you won't find within a Walmart. And, on this episode of Up Next in Commerce, Cynthia Kleinbaum Milner told me about how that competitive edge is something that Walmart wanted to lean into as it evolved into the digital era. Cynthia is the VP of marketing for Walmart Plus, Online Grocery and Mobile App, and part of what she does is help Walmart use the power of its retail presence to engage with customers in an omnichannel way, this includes on mobile, which we touched on a lot in the interview. We also dove into Walmart Plus, and how Cynthia positioned Walmart Plus different from the competition, by getting the deepest understanding of what customers want and why. Plus we got into Cynthia's own journey and how she has developed her skills as a marketer to land at one of the biggest global companies ever. This was such a fun episode, I hope you enjoy it!Main Takeaways:Going Backward To Move Forward: The world changes so rapidly that oftentimes the skills you are using now as the main part of your job will be peripheral or inapplicable in just a few years. Rather than continuing on one path doing only what you know, it might be a better long-term strategy to step back and learn in other emerging areas to make yourself more well-rounded. Even if you have to make a lateral or backward move right now, in the long run you will be a much better and a more skilled worker.The Full Experience, Online and Off: Walmart is more than just a grocery store for those who go to physical locations. Naturally, the online experience had to be more than just one kind of shopping experience as well. Creating an app that makes the entire experience of shopping better, has to be the goal. Whether that means bringing in scan and go features to use in-store, or an endless aisle to shop from online, or building in additional services like financial help and delivery, there has to be more to your app so that you are providing customers with the ideal experience.Making Membership Worth It: Too often, brands have membership programs that have one or two benefits that customers use every once in a while at best. But if you're going to have a membership model, you want to make it worthwhile for customers and the business. There should be services that you can't access otherwise, you should be adding value to your customers' lives, and you should always be striving to add features and services that save time and money for your customers, which will make them want to use your app and come to your store even more.For an in-depth look at this episode, check out the full transcript below.

Consisting of 8 cities (Bell, Bell Gardens, Commerce, Cudahy, Huntington Park, Maywood, South Gate and Vernon), and roughly 440,000 residents (90% identifying as Latinx), stretching along the 710 freeway, Southeast Los Angeles has been one of the hardest hit by COVID-19, as many of its residents being the essential workers of our region. Prior to COVID-19, Southeast LA has long faced environmental challenges, given its location adjacent to a major freeway; has had less access to green space than the rest of the county; and have less access to grocery stores and fresh produce. As South Gate Councilmember Denise Diaz has noted, “We are the doughnut hole of LA County. Funding tends to go to our neighboring cities and not here.” Founded on the belief that “community problems must be solved by the community itself,” CivitasLA is pleased to be joined by Andy Carrasco, VP, SoCalGas and Emma Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer, of Southeast Community Development Corp. (SCDC) two civic leaders working to elevate the collective voice of the Southeast LA region. Hear how SCDC has continued to engage local stakeholders and funding sources to invest in the area and transform the region.

Top Takeaways: Stacey Brown Randall's Advice for New Agents “I would tell a new agent that is just getting started – your relationships are going to serve you, feed you, and pick you up when things go sideways, as they have been known to do more now than ever.” “You have to take time making sure when you are developing these relationships, you are coming at it from a place not trying to sell them a home or get a referral… but ultimately at the end of the day, you're looking to help them.” “The truth is that a database is made up of referral sources, clients, current clients, previous clients, and strategic partners. There are just so many different categorizations, and if you don't start with something, it can get really hard to get back.” – Stacey Brown Randall [17:50] “I think that the truth is, if I'm referred to someone, I am less inclined to check them out online, and I'm more inclined to take the recommendation of my friend if I truly trust my friend. But the reviews and testimonials build your credibility for every other type of prospect or lead you're going to have. If I do go check you out after being referred and I see other people who love working with you, it only solidifies my decision.” – Stacey Brown Randall [19:47] Episode Highlights: [00:19] Intro [00:45] Meet Stacey Brown Randall – Referral Ninja Expert [01:49] Living in the Carolinas [02:27] Attending the University of South Carolina [04:32] Dreams of Being a Broadcast Journalist [06:58] Weaving the Way to Business Consulting [12:59] Best Ways to Help Grow Your Business [15:13] The Importance of Taking Care of Your Database [18:19] Verified Reviews in Referral Strategies [21:06] Setting the Expectation for Reviews [22:27] Tips to Reconnecting a Neglected Database [27:53] Referral Seed Example [32:17] Stacey's Advice for New Agents [33:42] Connect with Stacey [34:59] Closing Thoughts [35:13] Outro Episode Notes: Today, joining us is Stacey Brown Randall, Chief Referral Ninja Master, helping business owners achieve their referral goals.

How new parents shop for their babies is unlike how anyone shops for anything else. I know, I've been there. You're anxious, you're thinking about all the things your baby will need, but you're also thinking in stages of what you'll need three months from now when your baby is in a completely different stage of development. It's overwhelming and the brands in the baby market are mostly just selling products, and not selling how to have a better experience as a parent. Lalo is one of the unique brands that is putting the parent's experience first, and that strategy has helped the company quickly grow into a favorite brand among moms and dads everywhere.On this episode of Up Next in Commerce, I chatted with Michael Wieder, the co-founder of Lalo, about what it was like to create a new kind of shopping experience for parents, and how a little bit of light stalking went a long way to help Lalo figure out exactly what parents want and need. We talked about what it takes to bring a product to market with organic and authentic connections with influencers and consumers alike, and we got deep in the weeds of what strategies Lalo used to communicate with current and potential customers in order to improve not just the products, but the entire experience of buying products for your kids. Plus, we talked a bit about how Lalo has approached fundraising, which is a little bit controversial these days. Enjoy the episode!Main Takeaways:Influencers Are People, Not A Marketing Channel: You have to tap into an influencer's psychology and why they would actually love a brand, rather than paying them to market your product just because they are popular. Reach out to people who you know you can connect with, and ship them product to help them fall in love with the product first, then partner with you later. Not only does that form more authentic relationships, it saves you from wasting product and time on potential influencer relationships that won't work.Keep it 100: How you communicate with customers should be all about keeping it real. Think about how you would want to be communicated with, and treat your customers in that same way. And in order to deliver the right messages that also lead to actual sales, you have to focus on a few key pillars: technical, functional and emotional benefit.Get on My Level: Hiring the right people is the biggest challenge to growth. Not everyone will care as much as a founder, but you need to find people who do truly care and buy into the mission of the company and will fight to help it become better. You can also tap into the people who love your brand most to bring them on as advisors.

It's been almost nine weeks in the trenches for Auckland businesses physically shut due to Covid restrictions and still there's no date for when they will be able to open to customers. There are growing calls for wage subsidies to be guaranteed until Christmas and for more targeted help for those industries most in need. The government yesterday decided to keep the supercity at its current alert settings, meaning it is in limbo at least until next week's Cabinet review. Auckland Chamber of Commerce chief executive Michael Barnett talks to Lisa Owen.

About Today's Guest: Cal Washington is the founder/CEO of the InPower Movement, an organization that helps people resist campaigns like Smart Meters, 5G Towers, & Vaccination mandates, through a Notice of Liability process, and a renegotiation of the terms of these "deals." The InPower community is culturally, governmentally, and geographically diverse, but has a common bond: the need to have authority over one's health and home.

After a weeklong standoff on Capitol Hill, Democrat and Republican Senate lawmakers reached an agreement to extend the debt-ceiling to early December, avoiding the U.S. government to default. Jared and FOX News Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram explain how the two parties were able to reach a short-term agreement. President Biden is hoping he can put pressure on Congress to pass his Build Back Better agenda. The President laid out his case for the need to pass his $1.2-trillion infrastructure bill and $3.5-trillion "human infrastructure" bill in Michigan this week. The price tag for the $3.5-trillion bill will come down to satisfying the concerns of moderate Democrats who have been critical of the price. The U.S Chamber of Congress has endorsed the smaller bipartisan infrastructure bill, but they are not on board with the larger reconciliation bill or the new taxes that come with paying for it. Vice President of Transportation and Infrastructure at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Ed Mortimer joins Jared to explain.
