On the #MorningAir today, Jamie and Kelly welcomed Brian Kornfeld of PopKorn Apps, Carole Sanek, Shaun Ajani, and Eli Gonzalez to the show!
In the 7am hour today, we welcomed Regular Contributor Brian Kornfeld to the program. Brian is the Founder of PopKorn Apps where he works to design apps at a fraction of the cost of the typical app designer. Brian has a background in aerospace engineering and utilizes his extensive knowledge of systems and processes to design apps efficiently, thus reducing the time and cost to market versus his competitors. We touched on the RhiKnow App he developed last year that works as a social network to get recommendations from just your friend/peer network on places to eat, travel and more; think of it as Yelp with just recommendations from people you know and trust. This app can be found on iOS and Android operating systems free of charge too. Brian also elaborates on some of his other creations including Cheap Buzz which is a great way for college students to hear about deals at local bars. CheepBuzz allows for bars to post any special and have the users sort through and see what they might like. Users can even get better specials by using the “Chick-In” function, which will only work while they are at a given bar during the time of the deal. We also heard about Eazy Menu which is a new and innovative way to help you pick your best option to eat at a large number of restaurants. EazyMenu takes your dietary preferences and restrictions to help comb through large menus while helping you easily read in a dark restaurant, saving you time and stress. There have been many app success stories in the news lately including PikMyKid which we highlighted last year just after launch and today is in discussion with Microsoft on a deal. With the move from desktop to mobile, apps are in high demand, you just need an idea to get started. Brian invites you out for a discussion free of charge – give him a call at 727-415-6705 and visit him online at www.popkornapps.com!
We also welcomed Carole Sanek at 7AM! Carole Sanek is the CEO of Butterfly Boom Productions and the creator of two podcast shows; The Crazy Marketing Ladies Show and The Nearness of You, a history show based on her father’s love letters home from WWII. She has worn many hats in her career choices over the years and moved here with the intent to work in real estate but that quickly changed when she learned to blog. From there just kept learning as much as she could about social media. One day a friend told her she should open a business and it has been non-stop ever since. Carole is a freelance writer, content creator and has written three award winning blogs. Her successful venture into podcasting has brought her many public speaking engagements about creating successful branding and getting eyeballs on whom you are and of course podcasting. What’s next? Find out on this morning’s discussion!
