Using Video To Talk Directly To Your Customers!

On the road again but this time MP TV is in Las Vegas! This special episode is taking place at a real estate conference but my guest, Sharon McCormick, and I are both from Cincinnati! Not only that but we both worked in radio, and went to the same high school.

In this episode, we discuss how companies are still focused on major media outlets for advertising! It’s 2022, and radio/tv are not your only options! Social media platforms are searchable and more relevant in today’s media landscape, AND you can control the messaging!

MP TV with Matt Plapp – The Importance of Telling Your Story

In this episode of MP TV, we take another look at the importance of telling your story! I kick this episode with a saying that Guy Fieri recently told me: “Music sounds different when you know the story of the band, and food tastes better when you know where it came from”. That quote has stuck with me for a couple of months now and I think it’s time we explain how useful it can be for your restaurant or business! Tell Your Story!

MP TV – Using The NFL To Trick The Algorithm?

It’s that time of year again… Football Season. The question is: How can you capitalize on the NFL season to get more people in your restaurant? The answer is not yelling at your customers to come eat at your restaurant and watch the game because they already know you have pizza, wings, and beer. The answer is ENGAGEMENT in the comment section! Get your audience talking in the comment section about this Sunday’s game, and ask them who they think will win. Building off of this you should be doing something for every segment in your market, and not everyone is interested in the NFL, but luckily for you, there are more opportunities to engage.
