    What does Sunbrella fabrics, boating, pantyhose and the moon have in common?

    October 20, 2019

    Hey Sarah O’ Kelly here with Skipper’s
    Review TV. I’m at the West Palm Beach International Boat Show 2019 here in
    Florida. Absolutely gorgeous day and I am with William McDaniel. Bill McDaniel
    Glen Raven Custom Fabrics. There you go One of those fabrics being
    Sunbrella. So it’s not exactly an exciting topic but it is a topic that we
    can all relate too. We’re gonna talk of course about the Marine end of
    things. Bimini tops, cushion covers, but I’m interested to know how did Sunbrella
    come up with and how do they get to the top of the line as far as no mildew,
    color not fading, you can scrub it with whatever? How did all that start and come
    about? Well it’s basically that is a factor of the fiber itself but Glen
    Raven is a hundred and fifty year old textile company. Sunbrella was
    founded in 1960 so we’re a 50 year old plus, product. The
    unique thing about Sunbrella is that it’s the the color actually is an
    integral part of the fiber. So at the point that the fiber is extruded or it’s
    formed, the colors put in prior to that.. our clothes for instance are basically
    the fibers formed, it’s died after the fact and it if you cut it it looks like
    a radish, the color doesn’t go all the way through. The durability, the
    performance, all of those characteristics are built into the fiber. So it’s not
    necessarily anything that we add to it. What about the factor of no mildew,
    how come there’s no mildew, mold all that? Well again, being a man-made fiber, mold
    and mildew is actually a microorganism so it has to have a food source or a
    protein source to be able to actually grow and and to live. If something
    gets onto the fiber or onto the fabric that if you spill something and don’t
    clean it off or whatever, then it has a potential for mold and mildew to grow.
    The other unique thing, don’t worry about it, if that happens because you can use a
    hundred percent bleach on Sunbrella and it has no effect on the
    color or the strength and it’ll kill the mold and clean it right up.
    So Sunbrella is like it’s a household name when it comes to outdoor fabrics
    and coverings, how did it start, how did it end up becoming what it is now? Well
    our company, Glen Raven, just a real brief history we started out life as a as a
    hosiery mill. One of our founders invented the pantyhose. The flag
    that’s on the moon is made from fabric is made in Glen Raven
    company. We transitioned into the awning business, again prior to
    the 1960, and at that time the fiber manufacturer came to us and said we have
    this unique product we’d like for you to look at for outdoor applications that’s
    how it got started at at that point it was two or three different styles and
    colors and now it’s literally hundreds of not thousands. Do you have any
    other newer products coming on the line or you still got the standard of what
    you’ve been offering for a number of years? I’m sorry, actually this year, very excited about
    this, it’s a product called Horizon. it’s a it’s a vinyl based product that
    has a five-year warranty against loss of color or strength or any kind of
    atmospheric intervention but uniquely it also has a three year warranty against
    bacterial staining or pinking which is something that’s sort of been an issue
    over the last few years. If it does do that within those three year
    time span, we also have a $40 per yard labor
    allowance to correct that. So it’s it’s the first time in the history of the
    company that we have a sunbrella branded product that’s not woven and it’s
    complementary to the fabrics that we do weave so we’re very excited about that
    and it’ll be available in just a very short time. What kind of uses will that
    be used for you think? It’s primarily seating, so you can use it in a cockpit
    area. What we like to say is Sunbrella is imminently cleanable but it’s not
    necessarily wipeable. This product is something you can wipe off as
    something gets on there. Typically if you get to it early enough
    you can wipe anything off of Sunbrella it’ll come off but if it stays
    there and it does happen to stain then it is cleanable but it’s not wipeable. so
    that’s what we were after All right, well thank you so much Bill.
    Thank you guys for watching and Sarah O’ Kelly at Skippers Review TV at the

    Did I Keep My Hand When It Ripped Off? // Amputee Q&A

    October 19, 2019

    I hate that you guys always ask me this. Did I keep my hand? So in the actual moment of my hand ripping off obviously I was like bleeding out crazily to be willing to find the light though You have to be willing to believe in yourself and to believe in your story and to believe that there’s more that we’re going through And that what you’re going through is going to bring you Further into who you’re supposed to be and your calling and find the good in it Awesome fun we’re sitting down with this Hey guys, welcome back to my channel if it’s your first time here My name is Kristie Sita and I post videos every Friday So make sure you guys subscribe and give this video a big thumbs up today. I am doing the video Finally and I am answering all of your guys’s questions about my accident I think eyes know if you’re not new here I was in a boating accident five years ago, and that’s when I lost my left hand No surprise there So if you guys are new make sure you guys go watch this playlist up here and it will let you know and fill you In on all of the other details about that day and about the accident and after it but today Specifically I had so many questions from you guys posted from my Instagram story and as well as my YouTube community post I’m so there were all such amazing questions and I’m actually going to be splitting it into three Different videos over the next couple weeks as you saw from the title. This one today is going to be all about Questions that you guys have on the day of the accident So not what my life was like after not how it affected my faith or how it affected my life, but just details on that Day the day the big day So, yeah, let’s just get right into this video, and I’m excited to answer some of you guys questions And I hope this brings you more clarity on that day. Remember? Disclaimer this was five years ago. I was in a lot of shock. It was very traumatic day. I don’t remember all the details Okay, I’m sorry, but I don’t and so I’m just gonna fill you guys in on as much as I know. Let’s get into it so one of my most asked questions is why couldn’t they reattach my hand and the answer to that one is they could have So with that I believe I’ve explained this before but there was a couple options what could have happened if they did reattach my hand a I could it could have been paralyzed So it would have just been like a doll Hand that I had no control over so it could have been paralyzed It could have been in so much pain that I have to get it re amputated Which means I have to go back into surgery they’d literally have to chop off my hand again and give it to me straight as an amputee or It could have been just fine. So there wasn’t Possibility that I could have gone into rehab and I could have had a fully functioning hand That would be really weird that was an object I don’t know why they didn’t try but however, I’m guessing it was because on my way to the hospital I was telling them all about how I wanted to be a professional dancer and life dreams and blah blah blah they’re like, well, let’s just call her at dunzo and Hopefully that what they were best, so that’s why they did and for a reference. I’m happy that they did it So these are their two questions that are kind of tied in together if I could go back what I do anything Different or do I wish that it didn’t happen. There’s a lot of different outcomes that could have happened on this day I could have not cared about the rope and I would stop two hands Nevertheless to say I know that’s the right word. I would not change anything that happened on that day I would not change anything I mean Obviously it was a very traumatic day and my life was never the same after but I am so thankful for all the hardship and all the process and all Everything that I went through after the accident because ultimately I would not be Who I am today I would not be doing what I am today if it wasn’t for this day and it changed my life for the better For every single day for it, although it was not easy I would not change anything because I wouldn’t be me and this is such a huge part of me and to know I wouldn’t change anything I think that this was just the beginning of my life on this day and I do believe that I am on the path that God is calling me to go on and I’m reaching the people That I’m supposed to be reaching and I’m doing the things I’m supposed to be doing and then none of that would have happened without This accident, so it was a blessing to me Did I feel any pain or what did it feel like so in the actual initial moment of my hand ripping off? I did not feel anything at all I was in such shock that my body just completely shut down in terms of signaling it to my brain And I was really calm for the most part I wasn’t in pain, although obviously I was like bleeding out crazily, but I didn’t feel anything I was definitely just in this state of survival at that point the first thing that came to my mind When I saw my invitation or when I saw my new hand, I’m sure Obviously that was a lot of emotions that kind of happened at once but I do remember like one of my most Specific things that I realized in that moment is that I don’t have a wedding finger and so Obviously your wedding finger is this one on your left hand and I don’t have that so that was probably one of the hardest things to dry digest I think but then My family was really encouraging of just letting me know that the right man will know exactly what to do Despite my lack of wedding finger was that anxious or nervous first surgery? No, I was honestly so an event at this point I had no idea which was really going on I just know that I was waiting to get into an emergency surgery I was on all types of painkillers all types of medication. Everything was numb. I did not feel anything I was posting pictures on snapchat saying that I was high and on drugs and that my arm ripped off So I was not anxious No one thing that really did calm me down and just bring me a lot of peace is when as soon as I got into the Surgery room. I did look at every single surgeon and I just told them that I knew God had a plan for me and That was my state of mind at that point with so no, I wasn’t anxious. What was the main emotion? I felt when it happened and so I’m gonna take this question as if it was literally like when it happened And they listed sadness confusion shock Which was it? and I was so shocked like I just remember Feeling like it was a dream like I got back into the boat after being in the water and I remember driving through got lunch Being like no, this is real. This isn’t real. Like I was totally fine two seconds ago This can’t be real this can’t be real this can’t be happening like love My life was totally different five seconds before and now like this is just not realistic tonight risks a nightmare obviously that was the reality and then tagging off that question is how long till I realized what was actually happening and I think for me I think I always knew kind of which was going on as soon as we did hit that boat lunch and my confusion Minute was over and I realized this was real it wasn’t a nightmare that this was happening. And this was real I think I definitely just typed tapped into a like survival mode that I Just was doing everything that I could to survive and be positive at that point because it was That kind of fight in those moments And so I just remember as soon as I got to the boat lunch and they were asking me questions I was waiting for the ambulance. I was getting a helicopter to the hospital It was all very real to me and I knew what was going on, but I don’t think I was necessarily very afraid How did my family find out about the accident? So about this is actually after had gotten in the ambulance And then also the people at the boat lunch were actually family friends of my parents that had known them for a long time but initially my dad found out because I had gotten on the Amalie and said I was going to the helicopter pad where the helicopter I’d be helicoptered from the Sunshine Coast to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver and actually asked to call my dad and So I called my dad and it was just telling him that I loved him and there was no alcohol Involved because it was like a lake that a lot of young people go to So I just wanted him to know that it wasn’t Driven by that and that I was a Keun that I loved him and that I would see him soon So that’s how my dad found out and then I’m assuming from there My dad talked to my mom and they’re on the next ferry over to the hospital because they couldn’t get helicoptered. Obviously So they had to wait at the ferry terminal To get on to take the ferry to come see me at the hospital not knowing really what was going on or what happened So that was how my parents found out. So these last two questions are a little bit More as if like what my life was like after amputation, but I thought I could include them anyways Because they are really close to everything that we’ve been talking about So the first few days after my invitation was I upset or optimistic? I was definitely optimistic at this point I think the hardest part in that whole journey and that whole part of it was seeing how devastated my family was and obviously all the fear that they would have of what my life was going to look like because None of us really knew at that point So I was just determined to be really strong for my full family and everybody in the room And so that was my fight back reaction was just there’s no question. I’m gonna be okay I have to keep going this is just you know We’re gonna work through it and that was my mindset from the very beginning And so I would definitely say I was way more optimistic than upset in those first couple days Lastly to end this little question and answer. What does it feel like to think about that day triggering scary? Story. Oh, I think now looking back five years later. It is very surreal And it feels like I never really lived through that but it also feels like like it feels like it just happened But it also feels like I’ve never not had one hand I just become really thankful for my life and thankful for my family and Everything that’s taken for me to get through these past couple years and for me like I’ve said in the earlier question I just believed that like that was fully the day that my life really began and It’s just more of a celebration In my eyes, it’s not a sad day. It’s a day. I definitely want to be with family It’s a day I want to talk about the goodness of life and God and how far that we Both myself and my family since that day So definitely saying not turning at all still very surreal but very much filled with joy and filled with peace and I Really just a day of celebration and that’s totally how I look back on that day now because it has just shaped me in Every way possible and I would not be talking to you guys. I would not be in front of this camera I would not be on YouTube probably if it wasn’t for that day, and if I would be then I wouldn’t have this message and this message is my whole purpose so that’s that and That kind of concludes the first part of this Q&A. So that’s all the questions about that day Oh also one last one I hate that you guys always ask me this But you always do and I don’t know why but did I keep my hand or why didn’t I keep my head? No, you crazy people. I did not keep my head. Why would I want to keep my hand? I would not want my hand in a jar like some of you guys are saying I don’t know what they did with it They put it in words hospitals put limbs and bodies and dead stuff. That’s where it went So no more questions about that. I did not keep my hand That’s all and so make sure you guys tune in in my next Q&A video. I will be talking more about my neck So it’ll be life after my amputation You guys have tons of really really really really good questions that I want to be able to expand on that are coming in that So stay tuned Make sure you give this video a big thumbs up share it with a friend if they need some inspiration or you can just share that playlist of my amputation and it’s got tons of goods in there to help somebody that might be going through something just see a more positive side of what they’re going through and Yeah, whatever you guys are facing right now. Just remember that there is light at the end of the tunnel it is coming keep fighting keep believing in yourself because everything that’s going on right now is just creating you and who you’re supposed to be and making you stronger and making you brighter and Yeah, that’s something to be thankful for so and yeah as you can I love you guys so much Make sure you comment down below if you’ve got any extra questions for those videos that will be coming Because I will be double-checking this before it done them. So go comment down below What other questions do you have about my life after amputation or my amputation or? whatever and I love you guys so much.

    Exploring the World’s Edge in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    October 19, 2019

    The world in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of
    the Wild is huge. I’ve been playing for over one hundred hours
    and I’m still discovering new things! But even a world this big has to have some
    limits right? Well, we ventured around the world to find
    out exactly that, so join us as we explore all four corners of the world–and even a
    couple areas inbetween–to see what awaits at the world’s edge– So let’s start off in the Northeast Corner,
    where we find this island-maze, right up against the edge of the map. It’s surrounded by ocean to the east and
    south–which we’ll come back to later, but to the North, we can see a tall mountain wall
    extends well into the ocean. And that mountain, as it turns out, wraps
    around almost half of the world, from the Northeast-corner to just above the desert
    to the Southwest. So the question is. Can Link Reach it? Let’s find out! Here we are leaping off the Northwest corner
    of the maze and gliding toward the that giant mountain…and we’re making pretty good
    progress so far! But as soon as we get close to these rocky
    pillars before the mountain–our progress comes to a sudden halt with a message appearing
    that “You can’t go any farther.” Dang, thwarted by an invisible wall! But let’s try it again, this time from the
    Northwestern corner, which remember, that same mountain wraps around. Dang, the exact same thing. Okay, well let’s try once more, this time
    from the Western side. Gah, stopped in our tracks kagain–except
    we oddly didn’t get a message this time. And even worse, once Link dropped low enough,
    he automatically let go of the Glider–come on man–we need to work together on this! Okay, so it seems like that wall is impossible
    to get to. But what if we try going to the point where
    that tall mountain ends–specifically to the southwest, just above the desert. Especially since we can see a different mountain,
    one that’s clearly accessible, continues off the map. Well, here we are, at the edge of the map–and
    that little hill looks extremely climbable. At least untily ou actually give it a shot,
    as the mountain shuts you down instantly, preventing Link from being able to climb up
    more than a short ways. We just can’t catch a break Okay, so clearly the mountain-thing isn’t
    quite working for us. But what if we head to an area without any
    mountains at all, such as the desert! Look, it’s just sand and sand dunes for
    as far as the eye can see. There’s nothing to stop us! Except for those blasted invisible walls again–followed
    by an immediate sandstorm. Brutal. Well that leaves only one corner of the world
    left. The Southeast, and here we have nothing but
    water to contend with. And look, we can even some some land way out
    in the distance. And while they’re probably too far to swim
    to regardless–can we at least get close? We tried gliding their first…and nope. Invisible wall, followed by a strong wind
    pushing us back. So what if we try swimming instead. Ha, nope. So there you have it. The world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of
    the Wild is extremely open…until you reach the edge. Which, yeah, I guess that makes sense–but
    hey, we wanted to prove it anyway. So thanks for watching and make sure to hit
    that subscribe button if you haven’t already for more on Zelda: Breath of the Wild and
    all things Nintendo too.

    was seven years old probably, maybe six years old. I can remember catching
    fish with a fly rod. But I really got into it
    when I was 10 years old. My dad bought me a Russ Peak rod. And I took that rod up
    to the Big Hole River and fished with my dad
    on a salmon fly hatch, and from then on I was, it was something, was more than just a passion. It was something I wanted
    to do all the time. I grew up fishing for cutthroat, and there’s just something special about catching a Yellowstone cutthroat. They’re beautiful, but when
    you catch one in this area you feel very lucky to be here. – It’s a sport that I think if you spend some time doing
    it there’s so much to learn. I mean, you can literally spend a lifetime just learning new tricks, new techniques. – Maybe you should point out the eagle that perched up in its tree still. Sometimes you can have
    really unproductive fishing and you make one change of the fly, you change the kind of
    water you’re fishing in, and suddenly you go
    from nothing to suddenly you’re catching fish consistently. And for me that’s, even when I was 13 and really impatient, that was still a lot of the fun of it, was the fact that I think I
    really figured something out of what was going on under the water. And that to me is endlessly fascinating. I’ve been doing this
    for over 50 years now. – Unfortunately came last
    April for the caddisfly hatch, remember what happened
    with the caddisfly hatch it was zero I mean it was just, one day it was 74 degrees
    the next day it was snowing. – Our summers have been getting warmer our water is not as plentiful. As a result we’ve got these rivers that are classic blue
    ribbon cold water fisheries that the fish are under stress
    when it comes to August. Now we find a lot of those trout fisheries transitioning into small
    mouth bass fisheries. So you’ve got these warm water fish that are starting to move up the drainage because the water is just warmer. And so that’s a change, small
    mouth are great fish to catch but that’s not really
    what Montana’s known for, especially not Montana’s
    traditionally cold water fisheries. – Other changes in terms of things that certainly I ascribe to climate change. One of the things we’ve seen is changes in the way that runoff happens. I used to manage one
    of the local fly shops and handled most of the
    guide bookings for the shop and I think back on what
    I tried to characterize when people would say, “What’s the best time to
    come to Livingston to fish?” The things that I told
    those people 25 years ago would not be the same thing
    I’d be telling them today. (friendly music) – The whole tourism economy is driven since the movie came out in 1993, called A River Runs Through It. it’s been a huge income
    maker for the state. A lot of businesses depend on that river and Paradise Valley to make a living. – We’re sitting in
    Livingston, Montana today. We’re about 54 miles
    north of Yellowstone Park and Livingston along with
    a couple of other towns, we consider ourselves to be
    the gateway of Yellowstone. Well, this river is the
    backbone of this area it doesn’t matter whether
    you’re in the tourism industry or the ranching industry, or you run a small business
    down in downtown Livingston. We all depend on this river because that’s what bring people here. And it’s also what sustains
    us while we live here. You cannot overstate the
    importance of Yellowstone River and the cold clean water to this area, regardless of what industry you’re in. – I’ve been guiding and living
    in this area since 2012. Yellowstone is an area I fish a lot. It’s a national park with a lot of depth. So this is Mill Creek and
    it’s a little drainage that comes out of the
    Absaroka Mountains here tributary to the Yellowstone. – Fish hook! Yes! There ya go! Keep it tight! Rise above, rise above! Good, good! There ya go! Work em over. Nice job. Yeah, a little cutthroat. Not exactly a trophy fish but you can see the orange slash underneath its gill. Beautiful fish. What I like about fishing is, not necessarily catching the
    most fish or the biggest fish, it’s catching them how you
    want to catch them and where. And it’s soothing to the soul. As cliche and ridiculous as it is, it’s like you can get out and go and have this peaceful experience and there’s not much like it for me. So in 2016, that was an
    extremely low snowpack year. Warm spring, things
    melted off really quickly. We started seeing whitefish
    dying off in the river. – The things we know now, certainly we don’t know all the answers but at least we know what the pathogen was that caused the fish kill. We do know that warm water temperatures are at least one of the
    contributing factors that led to the outbreak, and I think we’re still
    trying to figure out, a couple years later
    exactly why it happened. – Low water, high temperatures they’re a function of each other. And 10.000 whitefish dead
    on the side of the river is a huge deal. I mean it’s an unprecedented
    thing on this river. It’s a fish kill that’s
    never happened anywhere close in that capacity in this state. – You start to see some
    of those fish which a lot of people may feel like may be the canary in the coal mine so to speak. It was very clear very quickly that we could be undergoing
    a huge fish kill. – When you were floating down the river and you saw a number of dead
    fish on one side of the boat and dead fish on the other side, you knew it wasn’t business as usual. – [Dan] So the governor, and I
    was fully supportive of this, decided to close down the
    entire Yellowstone River from Gardner to Laurel to
    all recreational activities. – Drastic measures are being
    taken in Montana tonight to stop a deadly invader that’s
    killing thousands of fish. Officials have shut down nearly 200 miles of the popular Yellowstone river. As our Joe Fryer explains,
    that’s a big deal for a state where recreation is a
    $6,000,000,000 a year industry. – It was eye opening for sure. Put a lot of stress on the communities. Gardner is a big rafting community, nobody could put a boat in the water, so that town shut down. – [Brian] We came up with a
    number trying to do surveys to figure out what the local effect was. And that the river closure of 2016 was something like half
    a million dollar hit to the local economy. – Kind of emotional about because it was a big deal closing the water. Never in my life time of fishing, that’s a first. It was like, “uh oh”. It was a big wake-up call. – When we had the fish kill and everybody was sitting in the town hall and pointing fingers and
    yelling and screaming. Just sitting there going, No one’s really bringing
    any data to the table so that we can maybe stop pointing fingers where fingers don’t deserve to be pointed, and start looking at the data and go, “what does this mean?” We are at Reedfly Farm, right on the banks of
    the Yellowstone River in southwest Montana, maybe 30 miles north of
    Yellowstone National Park. I fly fish religiously. I probably fish 100
    days a year right here. I just walk down in the evening, I watch for the hatch and then I fish this stretch
    of the river constantly. From the evidence I’ve seen
    on climate change in Montana, in this particular area, there’s this trend for same amount of precipitation
    but less snowpack. So in the hotter portion of the season when you have lower flows
    and hotter temperatures, of course you’re going to have
    a change to the river system. If you think of a river as a water budget, or a water shed as a water budget: you’ve got money coming
    in and money going out. You’ve got water coming
    in and water going out. The water comes in through precipitation: it could be rainfall, and it could be snowpack that’s melting, it can also be groundwater release, that’s the inputs. Then it gets used, right? It either flows through the system or it goes down into the
    ground water and into the table or plants are using it
    or people are using it. As you get hotter summers, if you have the same
    amount of precipitation; rain plus snowpack. and that snowpack melts sooner you don’t have as much base-flow of water later in the season. What it’s gonna create we don’t know. We didn’t think it was going
    to create an algae bloom that resulted in parasites
    that then killed fish. I mean everybody was
    just waiting around for low-flow and hot water to kill the fish. That’s what’s kinda scary about it is the complexity of what
    this climate change can do at a micro level. – That is something we should
    be paying attention to. When 10,000 dead whitefish
    that need cold water, that need abundant water, when they’re dying like that. It’s like wake-up man. We gotta make some changes. Hey, man. – Hey, good morning, Jeff. – Mornin’. – All right here. That’s the sonde with the
    multi parameter sensor. – So this is the one we’re
    putting right down here in the river. – That’s right. – Well, you can’t expect
    the government to hire a bunch of people to
    monitor a whole water shed. So we’re like, Let’s get the community. Let’s get the fly-fishing guys. Let’s get the local land owners. Let’s get the schools involved. We gather the data within 24
    hours we publish it online and people can go look at it. That’s the concept of RiverNET. – We like to call it community
    science because it does take a village (laughs) to raise a trout. – RiverNET is stemming from a call from local folks here in the
    valley for better information about the things that are
    going on in their river. And so we became involved
    as kind of the scientists to provide that scientific background. So this is one of our
    in-stream data loggers. It’s looking at temperature
    and also stream depth. And then Rick, right now, he’s able to download
    the data via Bluetooth right on to his phone. – Water temperature is very
    important for bug hatches and time of day to be out on the water. So I can get a sensor like this, come and take a reading from time to time and really have an idea of what the water temperature
    is doing at what time of day. – The product of this data set, as people are anticipating
    the effects of climate change and trying to find a way to
    respond to it themselves, having high quality, long term, high resolution data will benefit that decision
    making by letting them not only know what changes have occurred but also be able to predict
    what changes might occur. – The unknown of how the
    climate’s gonna change and the unknown of how that
    change is gonna impact Montana, that’s harder to prepare for but that doesn’t mean
    we can somehow ignore the fact that it’s happening. If we get too caught up on fighting about why climate change is happening, we lose valuable years to figure out how we go about mitigating
    the impact of climate change. And that’s something I
    think we really need to do. – I think a lot of people my age when we sort of saw the
    issue of climate change come on the horizon, I think a lot of us thought, well our kids and grandkids
    will have to deal with that but that’s something
    that’s way down the road, we don’t need to worry about it. And it’s been pretty
    shocking to a lot of us to just take stock and look around and realize that things
    have changed a lot. So certainly, as an outfitter and guide, one thing’s that’s important
    for us to be able to do is to adapt to the changes
    that are coming along. – Trout are reliant upon a
    certain water temperature. So if we rise beyond a certain point, imagine 70 degrees, we better start liking small mouth bass, ’cause trout will go away. And that would be in my opinion, criminal. Because it’s one of the prettiest fish that you can catch in fresh water. – Just look around. There isn’t anything about
    this that speaks of bass. I don’t know where in
    the world you have bass and elk, bear, even wolves. This is a trout environment. This is a mountainous trout environment that we all need to work on protecting to ensure future generations
    have the same opportunity to enjoy what I enjoy. (gentle music)

    Fishing Power Baits in Cold Water with Kevin VanDam

    October 19, 2019

    We’re out here right now with the Wired2Fish
    guys and we’re on Kentucky Lake. We’re trying to follow this fall transition; we’re looking
    for shad, gravel bars, grass beds, and things like that. When you’re watching this you’re probably
    sitting at home watching the snowflakes fly and thinking about spring time early season
    fishing. One of the things I really like to do is I like to get out there early. It’s
    the time of the year when the fish really get grouped up, the water’s cold, they can
    be in a big school, and you can catch some of the biggest fish of the year. I still like to
    power fish. Some people think that when it’s real cold you’ve got to slow down and fish
    deep, and that’s not necessarily the case. The one thing that I’ve learned is I can really
    apply a lot of those same techniques. My favorite lures for fishing that winter period and early
    spring are still crankbaits. I mean yeah I’m going to have a jig, a swimbait, and a lot
    of other things ready to go. But to cover water and find bass you’ve really got to have
    three lures that I’m going to show you. First are foremost you’ve got to have a lipless
    crankbait. A 1/2 ounce Red Eyed Shad is a go-to bait for me. I’ve won a ton of money
    with this. It’s very efficient for covering flatter areas and shallower areas because
    again it sinks. On a casting retrieve this is going to get you from 0-8 foot or so. If
    you’re going a little bit deeper than that you can go up to the 3/4 ounce model and get
    it down to 10 foot or so. Fantastic if the lake you’re fishing has grass. A lot of the
    lowland reservoirs that don’t have grass it’s still perfect. Kentucky Lake, Pickwick, and
    places like that have a lot of gravel bars and even though there’s not grass on them lipless crankbaits are a great tool on a lot of those
    fish because of the water clarity being kind of low they will stay shallow even in 35 degrees
    water so you can catch a lot of fish with that. I try to use a slow retrieve, have just
    enough contact with the bottom that I can keep this bait bumping into cover and rip it out of the grass. PERFECT. A lot of the lakes that I fish maybe have
    a little steeper banks; highland reservoirs or something like that. That’s where this
    (this is a bait I’ve been looking for awhile from Strike King) it’s called a Lucky Shad.
    The unique thing about this lure is it’s got a very tight action like some other minnow
    baits do, it has a really good rattle to it, and you’ll notice that the bill is a little
    bit different. Most of these minnow baits that are on the market have a rounded bill.
    This one with that square covered bill deflects off the rocks and cover. This is a great for
    fishing rip rap, channel banks, and things like that. I typically throw this on a spinning
    rod with light line. 10 pound test is what gives it the livest action. Another thing
    with this bait is it’s designed to almost suspend. In cold water this bait will suspend,
    and in warmer water it has a slow rise to it. I like crawdad colors if i’m cranking
    the rocks and that. If it’s a clear lake and it’s coming off the bottom I’ll use a shad
    pattern. I’ll tell this makes a great jerkbait when you can get it out off the bank from
    up shallow as it comes out into deeper water. Stop it, twitch it a few times, and let it
    pause for a few seconds. It’s a great combination crankbait for rocks and to kind of use as
    a jerkbait. Which leads me to the jerkbait. The big that
    I’m really looking for this time of year is what the fish are really keying on. If they’re
    on the bottom eating crawfish it’s hard to beat that Red Eyed Shad or something like
    that Lucky Shad crankbait that is getting down into the rocks. If you’re seeing a lot of gulls around and
    shad dying on the surface you know that the bass are going to be suspended and that’s
    where a suspending jerkbait like this Strike King KVD Jerkbait really come in. I love this
    color right here this Crystal Shad if the water has some clarity to it. If it’s a little
    more stained you can use some Chartreuse Sexy Shad or something like that. The thing about the jerkbait is you’ve got
    to have clear water. These other crankbaits not so much if you’ve got stained or dirty
    water they’re still going to work. If you don’t have clear water this is not even an
    option. I like to have a least 2- 2 1/2 foot of clarity and see be able to see it that
    far down before I even pull out a jerkbait. If I’ve got really clear water that’s when
    this really shines. In the early spring or the winter time these three baits can help
    you find the fish quick and they’re still really good at catching them. I call them
    search and destroy baits and that’s what I use during this time of year.

    FLY FISHING: How to Get Started (casting, techniques, flies) – FLY TV

    October 19, 2019

    Welcome to FLY TV! – My name is Steffan Jensen.
    – I am David Lundh. Today, we are doing this: Up, accelerate and forward. This spot is a bit special
    as the water is running. My first fish on my own! This was my first time fly fishing.
    I am sure it will not be the last. We have rigged your rod now. Are you ready to do some casting? Have you ever had a fly rod? I have never cast with a fly rod,
    but it will be interesting to try. I think you will do well. We will start by giving you the rod. Some say you cannot put your finger there,
    some say you should have your thumb there. Then some want you to do this
    with this finger. I think you should hold it
    like you hold a hand when greeting someone. Grip the rod. Is that okay for you?
    Do you feel comfortable with the grip? – I feel comfortable with this grip.
    – Then we will start like that. Give me the rod. You are sitting on a chair
    and your phone is on the table. The phone is ringing.
    How do you pick it up? I pick it up like this
    and answer like this. No one is there,
    so you put it back down. That is almost what you do
    when fly casting. If your phone is upright,
    you would take it like this. Then you lift it up to your ear. Okay, there is no one there.
    You pause to see if there is anyone there. Then you put it down again.
    Almost like that. You have to hold the line
    between your fingers. Then I go up, back, up
    and forward. Up, accelerate and forward. Try once
    and I will have a look. Okay. Yeah, and forward. There is a lot of wind
    coming in from many different directions. It is a bit difficult to get
    the right movement on the line. But I can see your movements.
    That is what I am looking at. I am not looking
    that much on the line. Does you dad every get angry
    and hammers the table? Sometimes. Think of him. That is your forward movement.
    You put your hand in the table. Good. Back, stop, forward.
    Perfect. That is because of the wind. Normally when we cast,
    we do not hold the line here. We have it over here.
    Pull out a little bit of line. Just hold the line in that hand.
    Do not mind this hand at this moment. Just use it to keep the line. When we have come further,
    we will begin using this hand too. It is just holding the line now.
    Try to do the same thing as before. Good. Up. Good. Good, good. I want to show you one thing. You have been practising
    for a little while now, about 15 minutes. When you get your fly out,
    after making a cast,- -then we start to fish. I will show you the flies later.
    But it can be a fly we have to pull back. You put the line on this finger
    and then strip it in. You see the end of the fly line,
    it is almost inside the rod. Just a little bit is hanging out. We need to get
    all of this line out again. That is when we need to shoot the line,
    when we cast it. You are fishing the line,
    all the way in. Just do as you did before,
    the same movements. You go up and forward,
    but you let the line go a little bit. Then you go back
    and out, out. Look at it. Do the same thing as before.
    Go back and forward. Back and forward.
    Let a little bit of line go. Grab it and go back again.
    Then forward and let the line go a bit. Continue to do that
    until all of the line is out. The trick is to not let the fly touch
    the water or the grass behind you. It always has to be in the air.
    Try it and we will see. – Did it hit the grass?
    – I think so. Yeah, a little bit. What you need to do…
    Can I show you? I will just pull it in a bit. You need to speed it up a bit.
    You need to be a bit faster. Go up and then forward. With a very short line,
    you need to have more speed. Just to make it work. Try it. Good. You will sure hit the grass
    or the water, of course. It is your first time fly fishing,
    you cannot know everything. I will give you five more minutes
    and I will watch you. Then we should start to fish. – Sounds good?
    – Perfect. Good.
    It is looking good. – Thanks.
    – I think we whould leave it. Let’s see if we can catch a fish.
    We can practise more later. – What do you think?
    – Sounds good. Let’s go and find a fly. The first thing we will do now
    is to check the leader. To see if it is alright.
    There may be some knots. Sometimes it is just not good enough. Let’s just check it. But it is alright. We will switch this one
    to a real fly. – That is a pretty bad fly.
    – You think so? It is good enough for you. Let’s have a look at
    your fly box. Let’s have a look. We have seen some fish down here. We need to find a fly
    that we hope they will eat. Here we go. A lot of different flies. We have some dry flies,
    some nymphs and some streamers. There are some floating ones
    for sinking lines. We are using a floating line. We can see that the fish
    is standing quite high in the water. But they are not eating on the surface. I think we should begin with
    a little streamer. I think we should try the green one.
    Like this. It could also be a nymph,
    a little nymph streamer thing. Let’s try it. We want to tie this fly
    to our leader. When I use this kind of fly,
    or a nymph,- -I always tie them
    so they are hanging loose. In a loop.
    A loop knot. Do you know how to tie
    a loop knot? Yes, but I do not think
    it is the loop knot you mean. I make a regular knot first. Just put it around like this.
    That line should be on top. Then pull it up through,
    to make a normal knot. I actually do not know
    the English word for this knot. Just an easy one. Pinch that one and
    put the fly through. The line through the hook. Like that. Take the tip and go back through
    the little hole right here. Through there. Just place the knot where you want it. Just a little bit of…
    Do you see that? Then I pinch it again
    and then I go around five times. Like this. And back in. Into this hole. Then I wet it. Always wet your knots.
    You probably know that. Then I pull it. Loose hanging.
    I always want maximum movement. It should not be stuck one side. Let’s put it… I normally put my fly up here,
    because our leaders are quite long. If it is down here when you start to cast,
    your fly line is always inside the rod. It is not easy to get the fly out
    if the fly line is inside the rod. Just pull the line down,
    around the rod like that. Then you are ready to go. We are going down here,
    but we have sneak carefully. They are every close. We are going to take it slow,
    we will not run down. We are just going to…
    We will start with some very short casts. Come on. I think we should put some line out.
    We will make it all ready from up here. Get the fly out, like this.
    The first cast should not be any longer. We will sneak down here.
    It does not matter how stupid it looks. It is always better to be careful
    when you walk down to the water. Especially when the water is this clear. Hold the rod and the fly.
    Make a low profile. See if you can get down to that rock. Before we make the first cast,
    we just sit for a couple of minutes. Let’s see if we can see anything. We just want to put the fly out
    towards that tree over there. Just let it drift first,
    do not do anything. Just straight out,
    let it drift and hold it. Pull it back in
    when it comes down here. No, it is a perch! Your first fish on the fly,
    but not the one we were looking for. – I am the next perch…
    – You sure are, man. Not the biggest one ever,
    but it is still a perch. Well done! Still, a fish took the fly. Hopefully, we will get a big one. And maybe a trout or a rainbow. Let’s do something else. We will go back up. There is no fish standing here.
    It is one there, but it is too far away. We go back up,
    then we go around to that tree instead. We will leave them here. – You can see our shadows, right?
    – Yes. You do want the shadows to go
    too far out over the water. It is okay to have it in here,
    but there is a fish out there. Do you see that? – Yes, I see it.
    – Let’s come down here. Always hold the line around your finger. If the fish takes your fly,
    you just pull the line to set the hook. Okay, let’s try again. Look at the fly. There is a fish coming.
    It is coming, look at the fly. No, it turned around. There is another one.
    Are you ready? It just looked at it.
    Let it drift, let it drift. Try to get it a bit farther out.
    A little bit farther. There. Lift, lift, lift! Good job! Finally! If it wants to run,
    just let it run. Remember that the leader is very thin. If it wants to swim,
    just let it swim. Just release the handle. Your first rainbow trout ever,
    on a little dry fly. If it wants to swim,
    just let it swim. Perfect. These fish are strong fighters.
    Perfect side pressure. You turn it the other way around. I will stand over here,
    try to pull it towards me. Keep it there, keep it there. Come on! Nice! Well done! – Look at that.
    – That is not a perch. I cannot find the leader.
    I think it is over there. – I do not need this one.
    – It is already off. Lift it up. – With both hands.
    – Like this? Just hold it until
    it is ready to swim. – It is ready.
    – Alright. – Well done!
    – Thanks! – That was good fun!
    – Yes, it was. When you pull this,
    you tighten it up. You can see a bit of movement.
    Not more than that. Try to cast over there. Try to cast it out there. Try it again. Yes!
    Let go, let go, let go! That looks like a big fish.
    It looks like a big fish. Watch your fingers,
    watch your fingers. Let it go,
    just let it go. – This one is crazy.
    – It is one crazy fish. – Is it in there?
    – Oh shit! It will hopefully swim around
    to the other side. – Come up here.
    – Okay. Pull the line over the grass.
    Good. Yeah, there it is. Is this bigger or smaller
    than the last one? I think it is about the same size,
    but it was much stronger. In the beginning. Just a little bit further. – I got it!
    – Nice. – Well done!
    – Thanks! – Come down here.
    – That may be bigger. It is a lot fatter.
    Just put it backwards towards me. You got it. What a beautiful fish.
    Really nice. Let’s put it back. Well done! You are the man now! Well… – That was a good training session.
    – Yeah, it was so much fun. – You enjoyed it?
    – Yeah. Tomorrow is the big day. Tomorrow we need more action. I think we should wrap it up
    for tonight and get ready for tomorrow. Let’s go. A very early morning. We have tried a streamer and a nymph,
    but we saw some fish rising. Then we put on this tiny dry fly.
    A size 16 or something. And it worked! – A beautiful fish!
    – Yeah, a beautiful fish. Really beautiful. Bye bye! – Well done!
    – Thanks! – It is good fun.
    – Yeah. It is only about six or seven o’clock.
    The sun has just come up. – We can end it here if you want to.
    – No. It is time to try
    the things I have learned. Steffan is over there
    and I am on my own now. I left David all alone over there. I think it is time for him
    to fish on his own. He has made good progress
    and done so many things right. It is time for him to cast one his own
    and also learn on his own. I do not want to be standing there
    and telling him what to do. I want him to get
    some experience on his own. You will learn way more like that,
    than if I were to tell him what to do. I will let him fish on his own for a bit.
    I will watch him from over here. Hopefully he will get some fish. This spot that I have brought David to
    to learn fly fishing- -is called Norrbyströmmen. This spot is a bit special,
    because there is running water. You can fish currents
    and use dry flies that drift. Any put and take water
    is a good place to start. It is a limited area and
    you know there is fish in the water. It is not like starting off
    in the sea with sea trouts. Or anything else that
    may feel very difficult. You know there are fish here
    and you know you will catch one. Sooner or later. Just start in a put and take
    or in a smaller lake. Enjoy! – On a streamer this time.
    – Yes, it was a really good take. Was it a hard take? It does not like the sight of me. Got it. Nice. My first fish on my own. – Look at that beautiful fish.
    – That is a beautiful fish. We have almost fished for a whole day. You have tried
    many different kinds of flies. Do you remember the names? –Streamers, nymphs and dry flies.
    – Exactly. Maybe we should…
    Take your box out. We could show the difference
    between the flies we have been using. Pick up a streamer. Do you know or remember
    what it can imitate or look like? I do not really remember,
    but it can look like a bait fish. Exactly, some kind of bait fish. – What is special about the dry fly?
    – It is floating. What could it imitate? Insects on the surface. Exactly, like a mayfly, a caddis
    or a sedge. Can you find a nymph? Here. I do not think we have talked about it. The nymph fly is the “pre-dry fly”,
    before it becomes an adult. It always lives in the water. That is the difference between
    a dry fly and a nymph. The nymphs often crawl on the bottom,
    and swim towards the surface. Before they develop
    into a full size insect. One of these dry flies. That is also a pre-stage
    before being fully developed. It goes from…
    Not these exact flies though. The nymph stage,
    then it comes up to the surface. When it is just on the surface,
    it develops to a full insect. This one is just hanging on the surface,
    pops out and becomes a full insect. What have you been doing with the dry fly? I let it float up to the surface
    and then float with the current. Then the fish took it on the surface. And how about the streamer? Drifting with the current and
    placing it beside the current. Exactly, you have been retrieving
    to make it go both fast and slow. Trying different kinds of things. We have tried the nymphs,
    but we did not get any reaction. You often drift them
    with the current as well. Or slowly handtwist them. These are the types of flies
    we have been using so far. These are three main types
    of flies that we are using. You have been using a floating line
    on your rod or on your reel. It is most common to use a floating line.
    You can still put a weighted fly on it. You can fish a dry fly on it. – That is a good place to start.
    – I have tried with a sinking line too. The leaders we have been using… All the way down from 4X,
    0.17 mm, which is very thin- -and up to 0.28 mm
    with the big fly. It needs a heavier leader. It is a bit bigger thicker here than… The leader on that one is a tapered leader
    to help you get a better turnover. It is good to start with
    a 0.20 mm for the normal streamers. And the nymphs. Maybe a bit thinner, like 0.18 mm,
    for the small dry flies. The problem when they are too thin
    is that they break when you hook a fish. It was pretty tricky in the beginning.
    The more I practised the more I learned. This was my first time fly fishing.
    I am sure it will not be the last. English subtitles: Daniella Twedmark

    Build an Automated Lead Generation Machine to Fill Your Sales Pipeline

    October 19, 2019

    Do you
    ever think to yourself, “if we could just have
    a more consistent flow “of good sales opportunities
    into our pipeline “we’d be so much better off.” chances are you’ve thought of that for either yourself or for your team. My name is Marc Wayshak
    and I’m the founder of PipeRev, and we are
    a pipeline generation agency that actually helps clients blast through sales goals
    by generated a steady stream of new sales opportunities. Now we actually do this for organizations but in this video I want walk
    you through the actual process of how we help clients
    generate more pipeline than they’ve ever had before. And you can model these exact same steps for your own organization. So let me walk you through
    exactly what they look like right here on the white board. So step number one is we
    need to first understand the math of exactly what
    we need to accomplish. It all starts with the math. You want to first think about what’s the actual sales goal? Right? So you need to have an actual dollar goal. And then from the sales goal, now we start to work down. We work downwards to understand okay how many sales per month does that require? So now we know how many actual sales, then we need to understand
    how many leads per month are going to be required in order to actually
    hit that number of sales and so, that’s where this all starts is leads, or opportunities. Okay? Understanding that math though is so key, and you may be saying “Marc
    this is really elementary.” but so many organizations
    don’t really understand exactly how many leads or
    even appointments they need to have in order to ultimately hit this. So that’s step number one, is understanding the math. Number two, is we need to now target our ideal prospects. And so what we need to understand here is, who exactly do we want to
    be actually talking to? Who do we want to be having
    those conversations with? And who do we ultimately of
    course, want as our clients? Now, the other way of
    looking at this which I find just as effective, if not more effective, is knowing actually your ideal prospects, we
    call it, “nemesis”. So who is that prospect
    that it can be tempting to go after but in reality, it’s not really the person you want to be doing business with. This could be an actual person, it could be a type of a company, it could be a particular location. Getting very clear on who you don’t want to do business with, is going to be really, really important. So some of the questions you
    want to ask are, you know, who is this person that
    we want to be going after or not going after? What do they do? What’s their title? Where are they? Other key factors like
    industries, verticals, company size, revenues, whatever it is, but getting very, very clear, in getting down to this ideal prospect, so that way at the end of the day you have a pretty small pool of people that are ultimately going
    to be your ideal person. This is so key, really
    getting to that ideal person. And that’s exactly what we’re doing, is really narrowing down on exactly who we want to be going after
    so there’s no wasted energy. Now for step number three, which is all of the ways
    that we can actually personalize our outreach at scale. So what we call this is, personalize, personalization at scale. And so this where we’re
    going to actually start to be really thinking about how can we have personalized messages? which typically come through the form of a cold email, or possibly a phone call, maybe some kind of targeted
    outreach on LinkedIn whatever it is, but how
    do we make sure that we’re actually personalizing that outreach but in a way that’s
    efficient and doesn’t require someone to do 30-minutes of research every time they’re making one outreach. So what we want to avoid
    on the one hand is we never want to be just sending out,
    for example, that blast email. Okay? Blast emails are really, really bad. Right? And then on the other hand, we want the types of
    responses that we’re getting for our clients are typically things like: “wow, you really did your homework, you really understood our business, and what we’re looking for.” So getting to that real deep
    level of personalization, and really thinking what are those types of areas that we can really personalize? It could be, you know, it could actually be personal details. Right? But it could also be, you know, business events, key occurrences, things
    that have taken place, new rounds of funding, whatever it is though that’s showing that you’re really understanding them, and so that way they
    don’t think to themselves when they’re receiving an email from you, or in this case from us, they’re not saying to
    themselves “okay, this clearly part of one huge blast
    out to a lot of people.” and at our organization this is really a two-tiered approach.
    one is that it requires both using tools, like
    artificial intelligence, and different algorithms and
    then of course list-building services, but on the other
    hand it just requires some good old fashioned human research. Good research is really, really important. So that’s what actually leads us into point number four now. Which, I think we can
    see this, is actually mining the data. And so I gave you a
    little bit of a hint here about what this looks like already. But this is really where any campaign is going to succeed or fail. It’s the quality of the data. And so if you just go to
    a company and buy a list, for example, you can’t
    just take data and plop it right into emails, because it’s going to be really clunky. You’re going to be
    referencing their company name and it’s going to be “ABC
    Company, Inc.”, right? Apple Computers is actually ‘Apple Inc,’ but you wouldn’t refer,
    if you were sending an email to Tim Cook the CEO of Apple, you would be saying “Tim
    Cook with Apple Inc.” you would just use Apple. And this where it requires a high degree of really good data
    quality and this is where we’re really getting into a suite of using different tools out there that you have at your arsenal, and then of course, is just human. Good old fashioned human research. To really clean that data, that personalized data to make sure that when someone is receiving
    an email from you, or your organization, that they’re saying to themselves “Wow, this is really a
    thoughtful, personalized email.” when in fact, what it
    really is, is basically a templatized outreach, that is using really high degrees of personalization. And I mean that’s really where you start to get into some powerful stuff. And that’s actually what
    leads us into this next step, which is actually we’ll move over here, which is laying out the prospecting campaign. So a prospecting campaign, again this is where we
    start to get into having a truly consistent prospecting approach and one of the things that
    we need to do is understand all of the steps up front. The problem with a lot of individual salespeople
    do in prospecting outreach is that it tends to be
    pretty inconsistent. And so what we’ve discovered
    as an agency is that by using a suite of tools, and a really thorough
    prospecting campaign approach up front, understanding
    every single step that’s going to happen, in this whole process, we now understand exactly
    what that whole process is going to look like. And what we’re doing is we
    want to be providing value on each and every touch. And so that’s a really key
    idea is that every touch, whether it’s a LinkedIn outreach, a connection request, or some kind of a message, or some kind of a warming up
    using LinkedIn advertising, that there’s value so there’s actually giving them something. The prospect is saying to
    them “wow, okay, these guys are experts, they’ve
    provided me some value.” of course if it’s an email,
    if we’re sending out a series of emails to prospect, it’s not just what we
    call “the old bump email”, where it’s just if they didn’t
    respond to the first one just “following up” on
    the second one, right? Every single touch that we’re doing we are going to be creating value. So think about what can
    you or your organization really be offering of value, every time that you’re
    making that outreach. And putting it within and
    entire prospecting campaign. Okay. And now that leads us to the next thing, so I’m going to scroll across this area here, and now is where we get into actually the meat and potatoes. Which is to implement. And implementation is obviously everything, right, I mean this is what organizations pay us to do, is actually to implement
    the whole process. But having said that, you can do this on your own. If you’re an individual salesperson or you are a founder of a
    start up and you’re saying “look we don’t have a lot of resources.” you can actually be
    implementing these campaigns yourself it just takes a lot of effort and there’s going to be some
    trial and error along the way. But we want to use every
    single tool that’s available to us so in terms of
    how our email automation is actually going out. How we are connecting
    with people on LinkedIn. Having a process that
    way it doesn’t require that every single step is relying on you to do it. Now there are a million
    different tools out there. There are a million different
    tools for doing the research, there are a lot of tools for actually implementing the campaign. One of the things though
    that’s really key, is understanding technical issues, like deliverability of emails. This sounds really silly but, we find that a lot of
    our clients in the past who have tried this and then come to us, one of the biggest
    challenges they just have is something as simple as getting the email into a prospects inbox. Because they’re doing some
    things that are causing Google or Outlook algorithms
    to say “This isn’t really a ‘good’ email.” and so it’s not actually
    getting to the inbox. And so we need to make
    sure that you are testing your emails, making sure that they’re not being perceived as spam and all of that. And then of course, in
    the whole implementation process is knowing what that whole follow-up cadence looks like. For us, we like to see a cadence
    of about five to six emails going out to warmed up
    prospects who have been warmed up through LinkedIn advertising, because we are typically in the B2B space. And then we’re sending out
    those five to six emails, where there’s value on every single touch, and highly, highly personalized emails going out every single time and knowing what that follow-up actually looks like. And so, by the way, you
    can also be mixing them with your follow-up like phone calls to prospects that have opened the emails a certain number of times. So we can use things like
    actually leads-scoring to really determine is this prospect, they’ve opened this email now three times, hmm, they’re probably
    kind of interested in what we’re doing because
    they keep looking at it but they haven’t replied. Well we can know that, and then that can be followed up with By a salesperson or an SDR. That’s really what the
    implementation piece is all about. And then lastly here, because
    I’m kind of out of room, but this is pretty easy
    which is just test, and repeat. Test and repeat. And this is really so
    big and this is where a lot of organizations miss the boat on consistently effective
    prospecting campaigns. We want to split
    test every single thing that we’re sending out. So on any campaign that we’re doing, whether, by the way,
    it’s using advertising or a cold email, we
    are testing every email with different variations
    and determining what works. And so we are actually
    letting the data decide which is more effective as
    opposed to what we’re doing. So we, obviously, have
    some hypothesis about what’s going to be the most effective subject line for an email, or the most effective call to action, or the most effective sales
    asset that we’re going to be giving away to a prospect or in an ad copy, we’re obviously testing it, and we’re making bets internally on what’s going to work, but ultimately, we’re going to be split testing everything. There we go. We want to make sure that the
    data is making the decision. And once that data has made the decision, now we start to refine, and then we keep testing. Forever. We never get complacent
    because this is so big. So big, we’ve got to always keep testing and making sure that what we’re doing is continually working. Because what’s working today, may not work tomorrow. So those are the strategies for building this whole process and I know
    I’ve laid down a lot here. But if you are a sales leader, or a company founder and this
    is a process that you think you might actually want
    us to help you set up, we’d love to actually
    send you some free leads to show you exactly how we think and work. So think of it as a way
    to just test drive us, and a way to really kick the tires. Plus you get some free
    leads for your salespeople to go make calls on. So actually just click the link below to fill out the ideal
    prospect profile form. And our team will get working. Again, if you are a sales
    leader or a company founder, just click that link that should be below this video in the details, and fill out that ideal
    prospect profile form and our team will get working on putting together some leads and then of course we can set up a call to talk about more about
    how we would actually implement this whole process with your team.
