    Throwback Episode: Alex Robertson with GiftRocker.com

    While we recorded this in 2015, there are MANY actionable nuggets of info regarding payments in your restaurant, gift card sales and more.

    Especially in this time of Corona-19, we are doing more and more in the digital space with placing online orders, contactless payments and more.

    As I have continued to preach, we MUST PIVOT our business during this time, and maybe straight CHANGE our model.

    We talk on Apple Pay, Compliance, online auctions, give aways and more...

    We'd LOVE to hear about anything you learned here, please post up on our FaceBook Page!

    We hope you and yours are staying safe during this especially challenging time, stay tough and moving forward!

    Screw "pivot"...our industry is changed.

    Keeping this simple, we have to not "pivot"...we have to rebuild, innovate and change for good.

    Yes, it sucks.  Get over it. 

    We're changed for good, quick episode, just continually sharing thoughts and realities.

    Email me PLEASE... my last email will be on the show... how about you??

    In this time, we have to stay together.

    Mobile360.io episode...ok...so something happened. (consider this a repost)

    Mobile360.io episode...ok...so something happened. (consider this a repost)

    We had the pleasure of interviewing Jagtej from Mobile360.io...but honestly, something weird happened with the edit.

    Sorry.  😐 We're reposting here for you... listen in seriously, we talk about some truly impactful things regarding the mobile space and you running your business.

    It's fixed now, and presented again...for your listening pleasure.

    Seriously though, please go checkout Mobile360 and/or email the founder directly 

    jagtej@mobile360.io and he can personally help you get your app up and running!

    thanks for listening!
