The Purple Tie Show combines business, marketing, and technology.

For the first time that I can think of, we’re going to discuss our recording setup! Exciting, no? Maybe, maybe not. We’re rocking a Scarlett 2i2 that plugs directly into our 2015 iMac 27”. We’re using AKG P420 Microphones that connect via XLR cables to the 2i2. And our headsets that assist us while we’re recording are Audiotechnica ATH-M20x. All of this is a few years old now, but they work and sound amazing. Of course, if you’re looking to get into podcasting, look no further than the Blue Yeti. It’s an awesome USB mic with a jack in for headphones so you can monitor yourself while you’re recording. If you’ve got a bit more money to invest, check out the Rode Podcaster Kit. That’s what we got for the office to record voice overs and videos.

There is an extensive conversation covering customer expectations. I’m not outlining all of it here, so listen on and enjoy.

We talk about Chatfuel.com and their awesome chatbot software. It is really very easy to setup, if not a bit time consuming, but once it’s up and running, you’re free to go about your day without having to worry about answering the same questions over and over again.

Lastly, we touched on two topics: Verizon outbids AT&T for 5G wireless spectrum and Apple may introduce a midrange 10.5” iPad to replace the iPad mini (I can't find the article I was referring to, but here's an article talking about the updated iPad Pro that the article referenced).
