What if the guy you happen to be sitting next to at Wayfare in Uptown New Orleans happens to be the king of social media, Jeff Januszek?
What’s the first question you’d ask him? “How do I get more people to follow me on Instagram?” Right? Well, listen up. Jeff’s Moscow Mule is the first thing he’s eaten all day other than a few blueberries off his 4 year old son’s breakfast plate and he’s happy to talk about the secrets of making social media work.
Caitlin Carney is the 51% owner of Marjie’s Grill, one of the hippest and most popular restaurants in New Orleans. Marjie’s Instagram followers love posts about noodles, dumplings, and fried chicken. You’re going to be surprised to hear what Caitlin thinks of the restaurant gold standard of social media, Yelp. And you might be even more surprised to hear what Jeff says is going to happen to Yelp. (As a public service, if you don’t have time to listen to this podcast, sell your Yelp shares today.)
Jeremy Joyce turned his back on a career working in IT for the US government to dedicate himself to the life of a singer songwriter. He’s a lot happier, but now he’s getting successful he’s turning to pedi-cabbing to relieve the stress of making it as a musician. And he’s still single. Or is he? See if you can figure that one out.
