Equities began the week on solid footing but early gains on Monday quickly evaporated. The S&P 500 closed with a loss for the day and just above the summer lows which is the key level to watch this week. If the index slips below this level the market could begin to pick up momentum on its slide to new lows. In that scenario, the S&P 500 could fall to the 3,500 level or lower. One catalyst that could lead to such a move is the PCE price index on Friday. The index is expected to accelerate on a core basis in both the month-to-month and YOY comparisons. This data would support the need for another aggressive FOMC interest rate hike and it could come in hotter than expected. While gas prices have come down from their peak the rise in fuel prices and other commodities is still working its way through the economy and is underpinning core consumer-level inflation.

Remember the good ole' days when health experts predicting an upcoming bad cold and flu season was the biggest worry to our immune health? Because of recency bias, it's likely hard for most of us to detach the rise in consciousness around immune health from the last 2.5 years. Surprisingly though, if you look back to consumer health surveys from late-2019, immune system support was still a top priority. The cold, flu, and immunity market became arguably the most important topic of interest in 2020. According to the Nutrition Business Journal, that condition-specific supplements category grew at a staggering 72.3% YoY. What was once a seasonality fueled $3.4 billion supplement category, now transformed into a constant year-long pursuit that added more than $2 billion in incremental consumer spending. Even without mentioning those growth metrics, any CPG industry professional with their eyes open intuitively knew that the cold, flu, and immunity supplement market skyrocketed in 2020. That being said, what happens to the long-term outlook of the immune health CPG category after a demand pullback in 2021 and 2022? Are consumers less interested in immune health...making it a dying category? I'll breakdown a few things at play here (changing consumer health attitudes, rise in immune health functional foods and beverages and consumer skepticism). Finally, I discuss what opportunities push the immune health category growth even further in the future. This content was supported by Compound Solutions.

I proclaimed something about MyProtein last year, but will overlooking a core brand positioning element end up making me look wrong? On September 15, 2022, THG (formerly known as The Hut Group) updated the public markets by releasing its 2022 first half earnings report. I'll be utilizing that financial information, along with the earnings call commentary and any relevant publicly disclosed information to obviously update you on the recent performance of THG and specifically the THG Nutrition division that includes MyProtein, but also synthesize everything to provide relevant insights about the global sports and active nutrition markets. While my focus will be primarily on the THG Nutrition division that houses MyProtein, MyVegan, MyVitamins, and others, I will also cover important information about THG Ingenuity and THG Beauty (including the change of plans around the Softbank investment). THG Nutrition divisional revenue for the first half of 2022 was just over $405 million…growing only at 3.3% YoY. I explain why that growth rate was so low compared to its major competitor Glanbia Performance Nutrition, along with THG Nutrition's current growth strategy, and why MyProtein could be an acquisition target.

Equities slipped again on Thursday with the S&P 500 falling more than 1.0% at the close of the session. The move is driven by a growing fear the US economy has been broken and will result in a serious recession over the next year or so. The day's move took the S&P to the lowest level in two weeks and has it on track to move even lower over the coming days. Next week the market will be on high alert for housing data in the form of Housing Starts and Permits and Existing Home Sales as well as the Index of Leading Indicators. The latest housing data suggests a 30% YOY decline in housing activity and there is a chance the figure could grow with the August data. As far as the leading indicators go, that index has been running negative for four consecutive months and is expected to show another decline in US economic activity.

The equities market slipped again on Wednesday, although the move was muted in relation to the prior session. The S&P 500 shed about 0.25% at the low of the session but closed with a small gain following a mixed PPI report. The PPI data fell slightly on a month-to-month basis but remains very hot on a core and YOY basis and points to additional price increases for consumers down the road. The news was not-as-bad as feared but bad enough and should help seal the deal on a 75 basis point rate hike at the next FOMC meeting in just 7 days. With the CPI and PPI still running hot and the FOMC on track to raise rates another 150 bps by the end of the year the odds of a major recession have grown very high. The first glimmers of that recession can be seen in the housing market, which is seeing a high double-digit decline in the pace of mortgage apps and new and existing home sales.

did you know Omnisend customers automate 32% of their email conversions. Are you maximizing sales? automate my sales Reading Time: 9 minutes 2021 was anything but a typical year. Email marketers scrambled to prepare for Apple's iOS 15's impact on email marketing open rates. Supply chain challenges created an extended holiday shopping season and brands increased their attention to the importance of first-party data and opt-in marketing channels. And while all of this was swirling in the background, they were trying to increase sales and maximize sales through established and maturing marketing channels. Our annual ecommerce statistics report breaks down the performance of these increasingly important opt-in marketing channels, including email, SMS, and web push notifications. Here are our key findings from this year's ecommerce statistics report. Email marketing Automated messages generated 29.6% of all email marketing orders but accounted for only 2.2% of email sends. iOS 15 impacted open rates as expected, causing them to increase 59% compared to the nine months before the update was released. The conversion rate for promotional email campaigns was 0.10%, a 14% YoY increase. 34% of consumers who click on an automated email go on to purchase compared to 7% of campaign email clickers. Email marketing generated 72 orders for every 1,000 promotional campaign emails clicked on compared to 343 orders for every 1,000 automated messages. Transactional messages continue to generate sales. Conversion rates for order confirmation and shipping confirmation messages increased 24% and 53% year-over-year, respectively. SMS marketing SMS continues to grow. Promotional campaign sends increased 75% year-over-year while automated sends increased 258%. Conversion rates for promotional SMS campaigns were 0.25% (down 9.65% YoY) and 0.62% for automated SMS (an increase of 20.15% YoY). SMS drove 106% more orders in 2021 than in 2020. Web push notifications Push message adoption is increasing. Merchants sent 396% more promotional messages and nearly 699% more automated messages than in 2020. Push messages generated 171% more orders compared to last year. 28% of consumers who click on a push notification message go on to purchase. Message performance remains strong. Campaign open rates are 27.6%, click rates 0.53%, and conversion rates 0.2%, while automated open rates are 64.2%, click rates 2.26%, and conversion rates 1.34%. Methodology For this report, we analyzed over 12 billion marketing emails, 63 million SMS, and 54 million web push messages sent by Omnisend merchants in 2021. We calculated conversion rates by looking at attributed orders compared to total emails, SMS, and push messages sent. We calculated click rates by looking at the number of clicks compared to the number of emails, SMS, and push messages sent. We also use the following terminology: Promotional campaigns: one-off messages manually sent by brands, such as promoting special offers, discounts, new products, and other promotional-style messages. Automated messages: messages triggered by user behavior, such as when a user abandons a cart, subscribes to a newsletter, or makes a purchase. Automated messages generated 29.6% of all email marketing orders with only 2.2% of the sends. 2021 email marketing benchmarks First, we looked at how email marketing fared in 2021, for both promotional campaigns and automated messages. Email marketing conversion rates Promotional campaign conversion rates ended 2021 up 14% year-over-year (YoY), finishing at 0.10%. Campaign conversion rates have now increased in consecutive years. Automated messages saw a slight decrease of 2.8%, ending with a 1.9% conversion rate. Welcome messages (2.8%) and cart abandonment messages (2.4%) generated the two highest conversion rates of all automated emails sent in 2021. The decrease in conversion rate was largely propelled by lapsed-buyer and product review messages, which saw the two most significant YoY decline...

108: Improving Scaled to Productivity (w/ Amanda Ono, Resolver)

Why Scaled to Productivity?The metric she focused on is Scaled to Productivity: how fast they could get new hires to 70% utilization while feeling confident, and able to lead a successful implementation with the biggest customers.As Resolver's product matured and they started stabilizing gross margin, they started to think about scale.Specifically, the best ways to maintain their margin while adding headcount.As a SaaS company, they were growing at 25-30% YOY in terms of revenue. They had a couple of levers to pull to achieve this: Utilization: ensuring individuals have utilization targets that they're hitting consistently. But their philosophy wasn't to have utilization targets in the high 80s or 90s, because they don't want to burn people out. Plus, they want people to still have time to learn, grow, and understand what the platform does. Hire more people. But eventually, that would hurt gross margin (especially at a fast-growing, global organization). So Amanda asked, “what if we could get more team members to be effective with our customers, faster?”. In other words, what if they could get employees trained and effective in 5 months, instead of the 8-9 months it typically took?They had a strong belief that this would empower employees and increase profit. And when they looked at their services forecast model, they saw that if they improved the rate at which people hit their utilization targets, it would have an enormous impact on revenue.So they worked to improve it, in 5 main steps.How They Improved It1. They got buy-in from leadership, and hired someone to own it.Companies often make a project like this 10% of someone's job, leading to poor results.They knew they'd need someone fully focused on it. So they got buy-in on the 5-month goal and hired someone to own it.2. They created an initial training plan, by reverse-engineering their goal result.They asked, “what would need to be true, in order to get employees to 70% utilization in 5 months?” The answer to that question helped from the initial training framework.They found there were 3 “prongs” they could focus training on: Product: knowing the product, and being able to configure it to client needs. Project: knowing how to implement a SaaS project using Revolver. Domain: understanding the domain of risk or corporate security. They already try to hire team members with domain expertise. And many come with experience implementing projects at a SaaS company. So they focused the bulk of the training on the Product side.3. They performed a “needs analysis” to learn what content was missing from the past program.After they formed their initial framework, they also talked to all the new employees and asked them what they would've liked to be successful in their first, or sixth month. This provided an active feedback loop and helped fill any gaps their initial plan had left out.To do this, they formed cohorts of employees to survey who had been hired within 30-60 days of each other. Then they batched them by role.They analyzed cohorts on a couple of factors: How proficient were they when they initially joined? (e.g. were they an early, mid, or seasoned contributor when they came into the training program) How quickly did they ramp up? And how quickly did they achieve success? Early employees could offer what education would've helped them be more successful. And the Resolver team would be able to further enhance the new training program to fill these gaps.4. They implemented a mentorship program, by incorporating seasoned employees.They took employees who had been part of the team for 12+ months and had them serve as mentors or learning coaches for new hires. These mentors would host Q&As with new team members and help them apply their new knowledge to real customer needs & situations. They also provided crucial feedback to help improve the training program based on their experience implementing successful projects with customers.5. They added a feedback feature to the training material itself.After all the feedback they received, they built the content for the training program. In it, they incorporated a feedback system so trainees could leave feedback in real-time as they were going through it.ResultsAfter the new training program was done, they ran 2 cohorts through it, and analyzed how much revenue was generated by:An employee who scaled to productivity using the old training (in 9 months), vs one who completed the new training (in 5 months).The results?A 25% improvement in revenue, in the 5-month cohort. When they applied this to all the new hires they made, they found this improvement in Scaled to Productivity drove an additional $700,000 in revenue.

Equities extended their rebound on Monday taking the S&P 500 up a full percent at the height of the day. The rally, a relief rally, is driven by an expectation for economic improvement that is likely misplaced given the consensus figure for the CPI data. The analysts are expecting CPI to hold flat versus last month but the core and YOY figures will be hot. Core inflation is expected to rise by 0.3% which is the same as the prior month and it will drive an acceleration in the YOY figure as well. Core consumer inflation is expected to accelerate to 6.0% from last month's high of 5.9% and push the Fed to act aggressively at next week's FOMC meeting. It is near given the FOMC will raise rates by another 75 basis points next week so the most important news will be the tone of the statement and the outlook for future hikes. The FOMC is already in uncharted territory so it is possible, however unlikely, that a 4th 75 basis point hike could be on the table.

But first, we're talking about the Queen's epic taste in cars, the wholesale price index in August seeing some sinking numbers, as well as a bold move by retailer Lowes in its reorganizing marketing and merchandising. Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning British Monarch passed away at age 96 years old surrounded by her family yesterday and will be remembered by millions across the globe for many things. One of them is a great, and quite tasteful car collectionRuled for over 70 years beginning when her father died suddenly in 1952 while she was on a trip in Kenya and was flown home. She didn't realize that she was to immediately become queen. Her coronation was the first international live TV broadcastTo the cars: Queen's first preference always steered toward British off-roaders throughout and even before her reign.

The S&P 500 wobbled on Thursday but managed to end the day higher despite hawkish commentary from the FOMC. The FOMC Chief Jerome Powell reiterated once again the committee's commitment to fighting inflation and bringing it back down to the 2.0% range. Based on the recent string of inflation data, this means a high probability for another 75 basis point hike making this the most aggressive FOMC on record. Next week, the market will face its final hurdle before the September FOMC meeting. The CPI report is due out on Wednesday and may show a month-to-month decline in inflation due to lower gas prices but the core YOY figures are expected to remain hot. This data will support another rate hike if not a 75 basis point hike so there is a chance for market volatility. Weak data (better than expected) or strong data (worse than expected) will move the market.

This week: Podcast ad spending goes strong despite recession fears, YouTube and Twitter launched dedicated podcast spaces, advertising questions what to do if premium users choose not to see ads, and a look into why DTC ads haven't fallen off as expected. Podcast Ad Spend isn't Slowing as a Recession Potentially Looms. Manuela: Marketing Brew's Alyssa Meyers brought good news last Wednesday. Things are looking up for the podcast ad spending despite, shall we say, less than ideal economic conditions.  Over on the general advertising side of things, it's a bit bleak. On August 18th  Daniel Konstantinovic, writing for Insider Intelligence, covered the worst month of ad spending in two years.  “July saw ad spending go through its worst monthly decline since July 2020. Ad spending contracted 12.7% year over year in July, per MediaPost and Standard Media Index's US Ad Market Tracker.”  Several potential causes of this dip are proposed, most of which are interlinked to some degree. Relaxing of pandemic restrictions and the return of larger social gatherings has increased commuting and free time away from screens. Meanwhile, even while the jury's out on whether we're technically in a recession, Konstantinovic points out a Brand Keys statistic showing 70% of consumers believe they're in a recession and thus are cutting back on spending.  Perhaps spending wasn't great in the general advertising space, but podcast ad spending continues to boom regardless.  “Some of the biggest audio companies reported growth in podcast ad revenue for Q2 despite a softening ad market, and buyers responsible for major audio budgets told us they've yet to see a significant retreat from podcasting, indicating that the sector could continue growing regardless of the state of the economy.”  It's also worth keeping in mind which data we're looking at and how we're looking at it, as Magellan AI's Sean Russo explains:  “We took a look through a few different lenses. When you look at year-over-year spend in July in podcasts, we're seeing a 19% increase.  If we look at Q2 YoY we're seeing a 48% increase. Worth noting that looking at month-over-month June to July we saw a 7% decrease. So, the bottom line on what we're seeing is that podcast ad spend continues to grow at a healthy clip YoY, though we did see a minor pullback from June to July.” YouTube and Twitter Launch Dedicated Podcast Sections Shreya: It's time to follow up on two developing stories we've covered in recent weeks, as two giant social media platforms have now rolled out sections dedicated to podcasting.  Last Thursday Twitter started the rollout of the new dedicated Spaces tab.  “Integrating podcasts into Spaces, where audio conversations happen on Twitter, is another way we're continuing to invest in audio creators. To do this in a simple and intuitive way that allows listeners to simply hit play and go, we started with a redesigned audio experience in the Spaces Tab.”  Twitter remains an important space for podcasters to both promote and network. With the addition of podcast functionality that's native to the app they've removed some of the friction between the promotion of a podcast and the potential audience member actually listening.  On that same note: last Monday YouTube launched a dedicated page for podcasts, though only for users in the United States. As covered by Sarah Perez in TechCrunch, the url for the new page was discovered ahead of formal announcement. Despite their thunder being partly stolen, YouTube's shown a promising amount of dedication to the industry.  “Last year, YouTube hired a podcast executive, Kai Chuk, to lead its efforts in the space and has been offering cash to popular podcasters to film their shows, reports said. This March, a site called Podnews leaked an 84-page presentation that detailed YouTube's podcast roadmap. In the document, YouTube revealed it had plans to pilot the feature by ingesting RSS feeds. It also mentioned a new URL, YouTube.com/podcasts, but the link didn't work at the time.” A quick note from script writer Gavin: yes, that bit of the quote with the phrase “a site called Podnews” hurt me too.  In addition to what Perez covered in the quote, it's also worth remembering YouTube has recently announced a partnership with NPR to bring their shows to the platform. It's safe to say YouTube is one of the big companies that is taking the podcasting industry and its potential seriously.  What happens when high-income households opt out of ads? Manuela: Last Monday Kelsey Sutton, writing for Marketing Brew, approached an important question: what if the people certain brands wish to market to are also the demographic most likely to pay a premium specifically to avoid ads?  “The people that advertisers most want to target are hiding from the advertisers,” said Eric Schmitt, research director and analyst on the Gartner for Marketing Leaders. “It really is going to have some interesting knock-on effects for the ad business over time.” Podcasting is not specifically name-checked in the piece, but it is a growing phenomenon to keep in mind. Current data tells us most listeners are comfortable with ads as they currently exist in podcasting. Stick around for our Quick Hits section this week if you want a link to some extremely relevant data from a certain study Sounds Profitable published last week. Sutton's article points to multi-tired subscriptions to streaming services as the biggest example of the popularization of a premium ad-free option. While these are worth thinking about, there's ample room for nuance in the discussion, up to and including services like Paramount+ and Hulu, who have baked-in preroll ads before every television episode or movie regardless of subscription level.  “Schimtt hypothesized that the shift may eventually spell larger challenges for traditional ad-supported media channels, including TV, as marketers look elsewhere to reach higher-income consumers or spend more resources marketing to past customers.” Ad-free listening is a relatively new invention in podcasting, especially on a large scale. For now we wait and see which way the advertising winds blow.  How and why DTC advertising hasn't cooled off as much as once thought Shreya: Last Tuesday Digiday's Michael Bürgi published a brief look into the world of direct-to-consumer advertising in a world anticipating DTC upheaval. With the deprecated ability to track conversions due to changes in iOS 14.5 and the additional changes to cookies and third party data, DTC brands are turning to alternatives like branding opportunities to hit their goals. Surprisingly, after seasonal changes are taken into account, there's quite a few DTC markets growing.  “Facebook has the highest monthly median spend in July 2022 at $19,022 ($2,000 less than a year prior), according to Varos, a research company that tracks e-commerce spend for about 1,800 companies. Google's median spend inched up from $8,101 to $8,209 over the same period; TikTok's grew from $4,095 to $5,981.”  The commonly-held belief that there would be pullback from DTC spending was indeed widespread, even leading to some companies not surviving. Those who did explore other avenues besides the cheapest and fastest clicks have discovered the wide world of influencer marketing, which just so happens to be where podcasting thrives.  Quick Hits: Recommended Weekend Reading Manuela: Finally, it's time for our semi-regular roundup of articles we're calling Quick Hits. These are articles that didn't quite make the cut for today's episode, but are still worth including in your weekend reading. This week's Sounds Profitable releases their second study, After These Messages.  Do podcast audiences prefer improvised host-read ads, scripted host-read, or pre-recorded radio spots? After These Messages is a one-of-a-kind study polling over 1,000 podcast super listeners to answer that question.

Happy Thursday Troublemakers. Today we are talking about the longest permitting process ever and why it needs to change if EV Automakers will be able to keep up. We also talk about the premium price that is about to come with Netflix new ad service, as well as a fact-checked $30k EV battery replacement. Inventory shortage easing as new vehicles sales for Kia and Hyundai as they see their first YOY growth since Summer of 2021Kia, with the lowest day's supply of vehicles, according to Cox Automotive data, said it set an August record with 66,089 deliveries, signaling the company's lineup continues to churn at a high rate.S&P Global Mobility last week reduced its forecast for U.S. auto sales in 2022 to 14.1 million, from 14.6 million as recently as July.August marked the 10th consecutive month that retail inventory closed below 900,000 units, J.D.

Podcast Ad Spend Isn't Slowing as a Recession Potentially Looms & 7 Other Stories

This week: Podcast ad spending goes strong despite recession fears, YouTube and Twitter launched dedicated podcast spaces, advertising questions what to do if premium users choose not to see ads, and a look into why DTC ads haven't fallen off as expected. Podcast Ad Spend isn't Slowing as a Recession Potentially Looms. Manuela: Marketing Brew's Alyssa Meyers brought good news last Wednesday. Things are looking up for the podcast ad spending despite, shall we say, less than ideal economic conditions.  Over on the general advertising side of things, it's a bit bleak. On August 18th  Daniel Konstantinovic, writing for Insider Intelligence, covered the worst month of ad spending in two years.  “July saw ad spending go through its worst monthly decline since July 2020. Ad spending contracted 12.7% year over year in July, per MediaPost and Standard Media Index's US Ad Market Tracker.”  Several potential causes of this dip are proposed, most of which are interlinked to some degree. Relaxing of pandemic restrictions and the return of larger social gatherings has increased commuting and free time away from screens. Meanwhile, even while the jury's out on whether we're technically in a recession, Konstantinovic points out a Brand Keys statistic showing 70% of consumers believe they're in a recession and thus are cutting back on spending.  Perhaps spending wasn't great in the general advertising space, but podcast ad spending continues to boom regardless.  “Some of the biggest audio companies reported growth in podcast ad revenue for Q2 despite a softening ad market, and buyers responsible for major audio budgets told us they've yet to see a significant retreat from podcasting, indicating that the sector could continue growing regardless of the state of the economy.”  It's also worth keeping in mind which data we're looking at and how we're looking at it, as Magellan AI's Sean Russo explains:  “We took a look through a few different lenses. When you look at year-over-year spend in July in podcasts, we're seeing a 19% increase.  If we look at Q2 YoY we're seeing a 48% increase. Worth noting that looking at month-over-month June to July we saw a 7% decrease. So, the bottom line on what we're seeing is that podcast ad spend continues to grow at a healthy clip YoY, though we did see a minor pullback from June to July.” YouTube and Twitter Launch Dedicated Podcast Sections Shreya: It's time to follow up on two developing stories we've covered in recent weeks, as two giant social media platforms have now rolled out sections dedicated to podcasting.  Last Thursday Twitter started the rollout of the new dedicated Spaces tab.  “Integrating podcasts into Spaces, where audio conversations happen on Twitter, is another way we're continuing to invest in audio creators. To do this in a simple and intuitive way that allows listeners to simply hit play and go, we started with a redesigned audio experience in the Spaces Tab.”  Twitter remains an important space for podcasters to both promote and network. With the addition of podcast functionality that's native to the app they've removed some of the friction between the promotion of a podcast and the potential audience member actually listening.  On that same note: last Monday YouTube launched a dedicated page for podcasts, though only for users in the United States. As covered by Sarah Perez in TechCrunch, the url for the new page was discovered ahead of formal announcement. Despite their thunder being partly stolen, YouTube's shown a promising amount of dedication to the industry.  “Last year, YouTube hired a podcast executive, Kai Chuk, to lead its efforts in the space and has been offering cash to popular podcasters to film their shows, reports said. This March, a site called Podnews leaked an 84-page presentation that detailed YouTube's podcast roadmap. In the document, YouTube revealed it had plans to pilot the feature by ingesting RSS feeds. It also mentioned a new URL, YouTube.com/podcasts, but the link didn't work at the time.” A quick note from script writer Gavin: yes, that bit of the quote with the phrase “a site called Podnews” hurt me too.  In addition to what Perez covered in the quote, it's also worth remembering YouTube has recently announced a partnership with NPR to bring their shows to the platform. It's safe to say YouTube is one of the big companies that is taking the podcasting industry and its potential seriously.  What happens when high-income households opt out of ads? Manuela: Last Monday Kelsey Sutton, writing for Marketing Brew, approached an important question: what if the people certain brands wish to market to are also the demographic most likely to pay a premium specifically to avoid ads?  “The people that advertisers most want to target are hiding from the advertisers,” said Eric Schmitt, research director and analyst on the Gartner for Marketing Leaders. “It really is going to have some interesting knock-on effects for the ad business over time.” Podcasting is not specifically name-checked in the piece, but it is a growing phenomenon to keep in mind. Current data tells us most listeners are comfortable with ads as they currently exist in podcasting. Stick around for our Quick Hits section this week if you want a link to some extremely relevant data from a certain study Sounds Profitable published last week. Sutton's article points to multi-tired subscriptions to streaming services as the biggest example of the popularization of a premium ad-free option. While these are worth thinking about, there's ample room for nuance in the discussion, up to and including services like Paramount+ and Hulu, who have baked-in preroll ads before every television episode or movie regardless of subscription level.  “Schimtt hypothesized that the shift may eventually spell larger challenges for traditional ad-supported media channels, including TV, as marketers look elsewhere to reach higher-income consumers or spend more resources marketing to past customers.” Ad-free listening is a relatively new invention in podcasting, especially on a large scale. For now we wait and see which way the advertising winds blow.  How and why DTC advertising hasn't cooled off as much as once thought Shreya: Last Tuesday Digiday's Michael Bürgi published a brief look into the world of direct-to-consumer advertising in a world anticipating DTC upheaval. With the deprecated ability to track conversions due to changes in iOS 14.5 and the additional changes to cookies and third party data, DTC brands are turning to alternatives like branding opportunities to hit their goals. Surprisingly, after seasonal changes are taken into account, there's quite a few DTC markets growing.  “Facebook has the highest monthly median spend in July 2022 at $19,022 ($2,000 less than a year prior), according to Varos, a research company that tracks e-commerce spend for about 1,800 companies. Google's median spend inched up from $8,101 to $8,209 over the same period; TikTok's grew from $4,095 to $5,981.”  The commonly-held belief that there would be pullback from DTC spending was indeed widespread, even leading to some companies not surviving. Those who did explore other avenues besides the cheapest and fastest clicks have discovered the wide world of influencer marketing, which just so happens to be where podcasting thrives.  Quick Hits: Recommended Weekend Reading Manuela: Finally, it's time for our semi-regular roundup of articles we're calling Quick Hits. These are articles that didn't quite make the cut for today's episode, but are still worth including in your weekend reading. This week's Sounds Profitable releases their second study, After These Messages.  Do podcast audiences prefer improvised host-read ads, scripted host-read, or pre-recorded radio spots? After These Messages is a one-of-a-kind study polling over 1,000 podcast super listeners to answer that question. Both the study and the half-hour video of Tom Webster's presentation at Podcast Movement 2022 are available now.  Streaming surpasses cable and broadcast for the first time by Kurt Hanson.  While not a podcasting story, per se, it does highlight a significant milestone for digital media.

I'm your host, Keith Weinhold. Learn 18 profound life lessons I've learned that I wish I could share with my 18-year-old self… and… has the time come?    After the looong & sometimes steep housing price runup, is a housing price crash finally imminent? And what's the future direction of the housing market? Today, on Get Rich Education. ___________________   Welcome to GRE! From Red Deer, Alberta to Red Rock State Park, AZ and across 188 nations worldwide… I'm Keith Weinhold. THIS is Get Rich Education.   The voice of real estate investing… 412 weeks in a row… since 2014.   I hope that you're having a great week!   You know, I have seemingly been a late bloomer in almost every way in life that you can conceive.   But as some say, “many people never bloom at all”. Alright, well enough. But look…   I was almost 18 years old when I graduated high school, just like - perhaps you - and many people are. But I looked like I was 13 then.    I was among the very last in my class to experience puberty there at Coudersport High School, Pennsylvania.    This is one reason that I could not attract a high school girlfriend or get a prom date. Even though… I asked a girl to prom and she said “no”.    As underdeveloped and impressionable as I was then, here are 18 lessons that I want to share with my 18-year-old self.   I wish that I could share these lessons that I've learned now with my 18-year-old self:   You Know Nothing. But You're Not Alone. You have so much to learn, 18-year-old Keith. So don't act like you know it all. Society actually likes when you're genuinely inquisitive and want to learn.   What about you? Can't you sense when someone acts like a know-it-all? It's not something that you want to be around. Back to advising my 18-year-old self.   Don't Fear Being Different. That's Your Advantage. In high school and even college, winners fit in. In the real world, winners stand out. In fact, avoid normalcy. It's a synonym for mediocrity.   Work To Learn. After that, work to earn.   No One Cares About Your College Grades. For your interests, college is optional, not mandatory—regardless of what your friends are doing. Find an energy for learning. Be autodidactic (an autodidact means a self-taught person). Focus on becoming a person of value.   Keep Moving. Health is wealth. Prioritize physical exercise over moneymaking. No matter WHAT you choose to do, you'll be living inside that same body when you're age 100.   Failure Can Be Alright, Even Good. In school, you learned that mistakes are bad and should be avoided. A failure that you recuperate from demonstrates that you tried. You learned a lesson. In fact, DECORATE your failures so much that you should go ahead and tell others how bad you failed; they'll either relate to you or they'll learn from you.   Don't Follow Paths Others Have Made. Others guide you. But create your own map. If you're soullessly trading your time for dollars at a job, you need to design yourself an escape route so that you can quit as soon as possible. If you're selling your time that way - stop it. Your life is made up of chapters of time. This is not a dress rehearsal. This is your life.   Research, Commit, Then Be Consistent. Prepare for disappointment. Most people won't be as committed as you. Showing up on time is a commitment, so is marriage.   Learn About Investing In Real Estate. Everyone needs it. It's made more ordinary people wealthy than anything else.   Keep Real Estate And Emotions Separate. Facts trump feelings. It's 99% about: market, management, and income exceeding expenses.   Make Grandma Proud. Pretend that she's watching you. Live a life that's exemplary in what you say and do. You might remember me mentioning my late Grandma Weinhold here on the show.   Be Present. Don't over-anticipate future moments and events. They are less important than the present. Otherwise, you'll miss out on your entire life. Your life will never not be now. Appreciate "now".   Who Your Friends Are Matters. Jim Rohn said: "You are the average of the five people that you spend the most time with." Take the average of your closest five's: values, their athleticism, their ethics, wealth, fashion sense, travel, neighborhood quality, and family structure—that's nearly who you will BECOME.   Finding The Truth Is More Important Than Being Right. People respect you when you say: "I was wrong. Here's why." more than trying to defend some antiquated or faulty belief.   Give. Money is an abundant resource. You will have a great ability to give. Generosity is championed in the Bible. It's Aristotle's third virtue. It will make you feel happy, it's good for your health, contagious, and spurs gratitude. This ossifies your net "value add" to the world.   Mentors Matter. Others see you in a way that you cannot. You'll simply never be able to see yourself in a way that others can. You'll meet people smarter than you; ask them for their help.   What Does Life Want From You? As I learned from Eckhart Tolle, don't ask: "What do I want from life?" A more powerful question is: "What does life want from me?" (And you'll remember that I mentioned this one last week on the show here and took a deeper dive on it.)   And the 18th and final lesson that I'd like to go back and share with my 18-year-old self is… Build. Anthropologists suggest that almost every person is forgotten after three generations. At your trajectory, what will your legacy be? Why and how will you be remembered?   They are the 18 lessons.   The stoic Epictetus said one of the most profound motivational things ever… and it's in the form of a question. Epictetus said: "How long are you going to wait before you demand the best for yourself?" Yeah, that is his question.   At least here on this Earth, this is your last life ever.    Now, as much as some of those 18 might resonate with you… and maybe you want to share those with someone in your life… I've seriously got to ask…   (Laugh) If I had read those as an 18-year-old, knowing that I wrote them a couple decades later, would I have ever listened to those as an 18-year-old?    I don't know. I probably wouldn't have changed my behavior on some of them… but a few.   I've also got to wonder, in another 20 years, will these change? 20 years from now, would I be advising my 18-year-old self any differently?   Now, I discussed in there how anthropologists suggest that most every human is forgotten in 3 to 4 generations.   Sadly, quite a few people are forgotten 3 to 4 minutes after their death. And many more, within 3 to 4 hours, 3 to 4 days, or 3 to 4 weeks after their death. Of course, your children will remember you longer, and your spouse of, say, 50 years will remember you longer. Realistically, LOTS of people are soon forgotten because they never did anything worth remembering.  Good people are forgotten. People that never caused any trouble or uproar.  They kept their lawns mowed. They kept their cars clean.  But nothing notable worth remembering, like caring for lost animals or handicapped children or always remembering their friends' birthdays. For a thoughtful person, it is wise to consider from time to time “what have I done recently, that people will want to remember?”. Of course, we should all do every day all those things necessary to be a good neighbor, a good landlord, and a good citizen.  If you don't do that, you may be remembered because you were such a slob, or took care of your house so badly, or didn't bother to shave and shower regularly. But assuming you are doing everything so that absolutely no one will be offended or annoyed, then you have to do something special if you are going to be remembered for longer than a few days or a few weeks. Let's recognize something. Abraham Lincoln died six or seven generations ago. He is remembered with respect and honor.  John Wilkes Booth died just a few days after Lincoln. He is remembered with scorn and despising. So it is a mixed blessing, for you to be remembered. For most people, they would prefer to be forgotten rather than remembered as a deviant or a monster or a social parasite. My own guess is that VERY FEW people are remembered well, for as long as four generations.  They may be listed in a family genealogy, but beyond being a statistical item, the individuals and who they are have been long forgotten. It's been said that "The greatest waste in the world is the difference between who you are and who you could become." Now, be real with me. Is what I'm telling you making you pensive and even melancholy about your own mortality? How do you feel… in your heart… right now? How do you feel… in your stomach… right now? What's your mind telling you here?   Cheer up a little. I want you to take some solace in the fact that… I believe there are more important things than for you to be REMEMBERED for decades and for generations.  But doing those more important things — helping other people, making a better world, advancing the store of useful knowledge — will usually lead to YOU being remembered, long after you have passed into your next life. That is probably the person that you strive to be here on Earth… after all. If you're still feeling like you're not enough… well… I don't have all of the answers. But you just got 18 lessons so that you can listen to those again and see which ones fit into your life. I'll be back with some GRE core content about real estate and a housing price crash. I'm Keith Weinhold. You are listening to Get… Rich… Education. _________________   You're listening to one of America's longest-running and most listened-to real estate shows. Welcome back to GRE. I'm your host and my name is Keith Weinhold. I am genuinely grateful for your listenership.    There will only ever be one Episode 412 of Get Rich Education… and you're listening to it.   If you'd like today's Show Notes, simply go to GetRichEducation.com/412. It includes not just today's supplemental resources, but the entire transcript of today's episode.   Some people like to say: "Housing prices. They don't matter to cash flow investors."   To that, I say. C'mon now.   Price might not be the principal consideration. But price matters. If it didn't, why not just pay triple the asking price on your next property purchase?   Why does every classified ad have a price in it?    Of course, real estate price matters-even to cash flow-centric investors- when you're buying, you're selling, or for you to have an adequate equity cushion for refinancings.   US home sales dropped last month. That's nothing new. That just means sales volume.   Housing supply is part of the reason for volume drop. Available supply is still just half - or less - of what's needed and it will be a multi-year problem.   I've discussed that before. The dearth of supply is an inelastic condition - it's difficult to change.    What's the way out of that undersupplied condition? It's homebuilding.   Well, many believe that homebuilders are in a recession. Some are building less while they wait for affordability to improve.    This is only going to prolong America's housing supply problem.   Let's LOOK at prices.   Since July 2019, which was back before you knew the definition of "pandemic" and the only time that you wore masks were for Halloween, home prices have risen 44.5%.   Yes, 44-and-a-half percent in just 3 years.   Now, if we shorten that up to year-over-year median house price growth in America, it is still 10.8%.    But the median sale price from June to July eased from about $414,000 to $404,000. 414 to 404.   Now, some might say this is hardly a change at all.   No, I think it's meaningful… because all we've seen are both YOY and MOM housing price increases for years now.   Is it an aberration or is it a trend to come? Of course, no one really knows. But I think it's worth paying attention to.   Has the time come? Did real estate prices run up too far, too fast, meaning they must come crashing down to earth in a streaking fireball… that's going to leave an indelible crater? Puhhh.   Let's explore that. Well, first of all…   …the definition of the word "crash" is somewhat UH-morphous. But if it's equated to a bear market, it means a 20% price decline.   Well, that's highly unlikely that a decline like this is imminent. Housing values are famously stable. Today's homeowners have oodles of protective equity and their loans are well underwritten. And the supply is staying low.   You're a smart listener, you listen here every week, and you're probably apprised of all that.    But did you know that even during the astoundingly irresponsible and toxic Global Financial Crisis and Mortgage Meltdown of 2007-2010, that back then during that cataclysmic event, house prices fell less than 20% nationally?    Yeah, they didn't even crash 20% then!   Fifteen years ago - those were the days of "liar loans", 105% LTVs, loose appraisals because appraisers were in cahoots with lenders, and we had glut of national housing supply and a foreclosure crisis… and nearly every housing market malady that you can quickly think of.   Housing values didn't fall 20% amidst THAT apocalyptic environment.    I made sure that chart was put in the show notes for you so that you can see that. That's the median sale price of houses sold in the United States, sourced by the F.R.E.D. through the US Census and HUD.   Today, homes are still being snapped up quickly. That's what a lack of supply makes happen. And we'll still have a lack of supply in 2023 and 2024.   In fact, last month, the NAR tells us that the median home sold in just 14 days in July. It's never been faster than that on record.   That is not something that you would expect amidst stalled PRICE growth. Well, higher mortgage rates will do that.   The American housing market reached a turning point this summer. Price increases haven't just slowed—they've stalled.   Of course, local factors often supersede national ones. So then…   Where are home values least resilient? Areas that were trendy and higher-priced homes.   Where are home values most resilient? Lower-priced and entry-level properties. They're the ones least affected by further losses in affordability. That's what we've talked about on this show from Day 1 - investing in entry-level homes for cash flow in the Midwest and South.   Who do stalled price increases harm: Sellers. Price matters, remember? New owners that hoped to refinance fast. Flippers. Who do stalled price increases help: Buyers.  Rent-to-price ratios. If you were wondering when rents will get a chance to catch up to prices? The answer is now. This recent outsized RENT growth has clearly been a boon to us real estate investors - even a windfall if you're well leveraged. Now… in the workplace, the pandemic spawned “The Great Resignation”.   People either started working from home or quit and stayed at home. They were on their Peleton bike… and on Zoom.    But tons of companies… from Peleton to Zoom - have seen consumers end their pandemic buying patterns.    Now… so has housing.   The pandemic-era frenzy where buyers hotly demanded more space and a Zoom room is what I have called "The Great Reshuffling". It has settled down.   At the point of being overly obvious, compared to just a few months ago, this housing market has become worse for sellers and better for buyers.   Sellers, you might even have to STAGE properties again.   Buyers, let's run a vibe check on how well you're doing for new purchases. Now you can usually: Not have to pay all-cash You'll often have less buyer competition Expect time for an property inspection Have an appraisal contingency And avoid an escalation clause on build-to-rents like I've discussed with guests here in recent weeks past. You know, a friend just shared something with me. He said: "We are officially back into the 2018 real estate market. I made an offer today on a brand-new flip. I got $10K of seller help and a half page of contingencies." That's what he said.   Yeah, that really sums up a lot.   The market has normalized - not become totally normal by any stretch, but negotiations between buyers and sellers are more balanced now.   There's one group that loves higher mortgage rates - and that's single-family rental owners.    That crimps affordability - pricing out that first-time homebuyer… making them rent from you. That's continuing to push up rents at faster increases than historic norms.   Fannie Mae expects that home sales will decrease in the next year. That's nothing new. The volume of existing-home sales has been decreasing for months.    So where does that leave today's first-time homebuyer, the person - that is becoming more of a rare breed - that DIDN'T have to pay rent to you in your property?   Well, the NAR revealed a profile of today's first-time homebuyer… and I think it's particularly interesting. Today's FTHB is… 33 yo - that is the oldest ever - ever. It might not surprise you since affordability is down so it takes a new homebuyer longer to save & form the capital necessary for a down payment, closing costs, and loan qualification. The FTHB is now age 33. Household income is $86,500 Median purchase price is $252K… so… significantly less than today's median priced $400K home. A 7% down payment. That, on average is what the FTHB puts down… so often paying PMI then. 37% of them carry student debt. Typical balance $30,000 How about avg sq footage. The average square footage of a FTHB's home is 1,640.   Now, I've largely been discussing either total housing supply or single-family housing supply thus far.   One bright spot is for apartment-dwellers.   420,000 new apartments are forecast to be built in the US this year - that's according to RentCafe. Coming on top of 2021 - when there was historically high apartment construction, it would mark the first time since 1972 that more than 400k new apartments were completed in each of two straight years. The top spot for new apartments in 2022 is the New York metro area.   Elsewhere, out there in the world…   Netflix is about to launch a “Shark-Tank” like real estate show called “Buy My House”. It's structured much like Shark Tank… except homeowners pitch their house sale deal to four “sharks”.    That could be interesting to watch.    Here, coming up at GRE, hear from not just me, but, as usual some of the most influential personalities in the real estate and finance space commonly come along for an episode and run alongside me.   Ramit Sethi from “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” is one of those notable names that will join you & I here on an upcoming show.   If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the show, you can always reach out at GetRichEducation.com/Contact. That's how to get ahold of our team.   One question that we're really not in need of hearing over there on our Contact Page, is: “How do I become a guest on the show?”   You know, a couple years ago, we had about 20x as many requests to be a feature guest here on the show as there are available appearances.    Well, anymore, it's about 50X as many requests as weekly shows.   We're sorry to have to apologize to so many wonderfully bright and credentialed people. I really appreciate them. But we only have one, big weekly show… and that supply is not increasing.   GRE show supply could be even more inelastic than American housing supply then.    I'd like to welcome our newest show sponsor, MyPropertyStats.com. It was developed by Hayden Crabtree. Hayden has been a show guest here before and we expect to have him back here to tell us more about My Property Stats.   It's a deal analysis tool developed by an active investor - Hayden - to cut the time it takes you to analyze ANY deal by over 90%. -Calculate the EXACT price to pay to hit your cash flow and ROI goals -Build a WORLD CLASS pro forma   In fact, you can go to MyPropertyStats.com/GRE right now and use coupon code GRE to get 10% off your first year.

Kwipped started in 2014 as a B2B ecommerce marketplace for equipment renting/leasing/buying with great success. They then discovered 2 major friction points in the sales process, matching financing to the customer risk profile and seeking financing approval at the end of the purchasing journey frequently made the journy pointless if financing was not approved. Kwipped solved these problems by creating a new platform for Point of Sale (PoS) rapid online financing approval (Approve) from multiple providers and moved it to the beginning of the purchasing journey. Now the Approve platform is growing ~200% YoY with hundreds of vendor customers and near zero churn. As Approve has become 50% of revenue and the lion's share of revenue growth, Kwipped has changed their name to Approve and is looking to continue their rapid growth.

What is the difference between Pre Qualified and Pre Approved? #shorts Foreclosures are up 150%! Okay, they are but let's take a step back. They're up 150% from 1 year ago when there was a FORECLOSURE MORATORIUM you couldn't even do one! They are shooting up from extremely low lows, and many are still working their way through the system from pre-pandemic! This IS NOT a cause for panic nor a sign of a housing crisis. All hope is not lost if your appraisal comes in low! You or your realtor can do a Reconsideration of Value. This allows you to present other comparables to your appraiser to see if the value can be increased, and 15%-20% of the time, IT IS! Headlines say that Mortgage Demand has dipped to an "all-time low." But let's tear this apart for a minute. Mortgage Applications include both Refinance AND Purchase Apps! Furthermore, the Refinance Apps are the big chunk of this, as they're down 82% YOY, while Purchase Applications are only down 18% YOY.  I understand buyers are dealing with affordability, but they're still out there!

Is Glanbia the bellwether for the supplement industry or will things change in the second half of 2022? Glanbia Performance Nutrition had 2022 H1 revenue growth of 14.9% YoY on a constant currency basis from strong pricing increases. They also benefitted from the mid-2021 acquisition of LevlUp, a gamer (esports) nutrition brand. Glanbia Performance Nutrition is one of two wholly-owned segments of Glanbia plc (LON:GLB), a multi-billion dollar global nutrition company. The brands in the Glanbia Performance Nutrition portfolio include; Optimum Nutrition, BSN, think!, Isopure, Amazing Grass, and SlimFast.

Thursday 18th August 2022 View our disclaimer and terms of use: nab.co/3shJyyp View our NAB Financial Services Guide: nab.co/3rvJtI9 Inflation clearly isn't easing yet. The UK hit 10.1 percent in numbers released yesterday. NAB's David de Garis says the sticker-shock of double-digit inflation set the cautious mood off early. But if hiking by central banks is designed to slow consumption it is taking its time about it. US retail sales were up 10.3 percent (YoY) in July. Can an aggressive path of hikes slow demand enough to stop inflation in its tracks? Will the RBNZ be the first to demonstrate success? And will the RBA need to pick up the pace, with some worrying signs in the wages data yesterday, even though the headline number seemed quite tame.
