Valentine's Day Mixtape

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Feb 10, 2017 12:18:42 AM

Valentine’s Day is one of those occasions that got us wondering, “What makes for a great love song?”

As it's true that opposites often attract in matters of the heart, we were inspired to create a 2-hour playlist with love songs of contrasting styles. Some of these songs are modern classics, but many are quirky hidden gems from our favorite recording artists.

Consider this our custom-made Valentine’s Day mixtape to you, with love…We hope you enjoy!

Featuring Fiona Apple, Mos Def, the White Stripes, the Talking Heads, the Shins, Caribou, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and more

Going Beyond the Initial Hook: Creative Customer Retention Strategies

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Dec 13, 2016 8:15:31 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for the bottom line. As retailers prepare for the final push of Q4, all of the usual sales drivers are carefully in place. Witness the festive store decorations and holiday music in malls across America, discounting galore, and omnichannel tactics to ensure customers have a consistent experience whether in store or online. But that’s not all: most bricks-and-clicks retailers are building engagement digitally through relevant offers, and increasingly pushing in-app messaging and exclusive offers and products. You may be one of them…

These days it’s not enough to just sell sell sell. Meeting your customers’ life-on-demand preferences is needed to stay relevant beyond the holidays. If you want to stand out from the competition and earn your customers’ long-term loyalty, consider the following unexpected ways to strengthen customer relationships:

How to Think in Stereo about Content Marketing

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Nov 8, 2016 7:14:31 PM

In an age when content is king, individuals rely on a wide range of organizations—both media and non-media companies—to curate and help them navigate a high volume of information. Everyone seems to be getting into the content business, as it’s proven to create authentic engagement in a landscape where traditional ads get ignored.

While most organizations use content marketing these days, it’s notable that the majority of these do not think highly of their current programs. According to a recent Content Marketing Institute report, just 32% of B2B and 37% of B2C said their content marketing was either sophisticated or mature, so there is clearly much room for improvement. This can take many forms, from better measurement to a wider array of tactics.

A Back to School Soundtrack Curated by The Breakfast Club

Posted by Eric Stensvaag on Aug 2, 2016 8:53:13 PM

It feels like just yesterday that school was out for summer. As the calendar flips from July to August, this time of year can create a nostalgic and reflective mood about what it’s like to go back to school.

At Feed.fm, thinking about back to school led us to the quintessential high school flick The Breakfast Club. The movie is hard to forget because it so perfectly captures something universal about the different cliques that American teenagers can find themselves circling.

In The Breakfast Club, we meet Brian (The Brain), Allison (The Basket Case), Andrew (The Athlete), Claire (The Princess), and John (The Criminal). As music lovers, we asked ourselves what music each of these archetypal characters was listening to as they went back to school in 1983, several months before that fateful day they met at the library. Then we fast-forwarded 30+ years and imagined their life’s soundtrack today.

Your guess is as good as ours in terms of what happened to each of them following detention and what became of their lives. However, we feel reasonably confident the following music would be found on their playlists…both then and now.
