A micro-influencer is someone who has anywhere between 1,000 to 100,000 followers on a social media platform.

JT and Matt give our two cents on the issue and cover steps that businesses should take before they decide to rebrand for themselves.

XYON Sofware is behind some of the most sought after technologies in the automotive space, but it doesn't end there. From humble beginnings to now multiple business endeavors, Co-Owners, Jimmy Caudillo and Sebastian Flores talk to me about a couple of promises made that have driven them to recognize pain points of some of the biggest industries in our nation and provide solutions to help owners and customers navigate through them all.
How did it all start? And where are they headed? Plus, tips for small business owners on making decisions that can make you or break you. One thing is certain, I'm going to need these guys back for another chat, off the clock!
COVID-19 came suddenly and unexpectedly. It's forced our entire economy in an uncomfortable position. The automotive space is one industry that has felt the effects in a tremendous way. How can car dealerships recover? One suggestion is all about innovating and jumping on board to using the internet and technology, which hasn't been easy for most dealers to adopt.
Jimmy Caudillo, President & CEO of Think Creative was in the dealer space for 16 years before deciding to open up tech companies that offer digital marketing and other software that help dealers get the upper hand in their competitive niche.
JT, retired US Military and one time a car salesman, now part of the Social Media team at Think Creative.
These 2 will share with us ideas for automotive dealers to maintain as much business as possible right now, and how to put themselves in prime position to get ahead for the economic comeback.
It wasn't planned, but in this opening episode of Off the Clock, Mateo speaks with Jonathan and Janette. These young creatives are just getting started in the world, but when all is said and done, they are determined to have left their mark.
These two are typically behind the scenes because they are mainly behind a camera. But Mateo convinced them to speak up and allow the rest of us to get to know them a bit more.
