Digital inclusion - closing the technology gap between the have's and have not's - may be a priority for some federal and state agencies, but the delivery of measurable results happens mostly at the local level. This is particularly true for broadband. Too many variations between cultures, geography, economic priorities, languages and other factors exist for cookie cutter attempts to get underserved constituents online AND maximizing broadband technology.
A Broadband Technologies Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant to the City of Chicago launched activities to educate and motivate constituents within nine Smart Communities to use the Net. Karen Mossberger, Ph.D., School of Public Affairs, Arizona State University, describes the impacts of programs that included workshops, advertising, skills training, and community portals. Dr. Mossberger's team conducted surveys in 2008, 2011 and 2013 to compare adoption and usage between the Smart Communities and the rest of Chicago.
Listeners learn some of the how-to's for creating and implementing effective digital inclusion programs. In addition, Dr. Mossberger reveals some of the trendsetting methods she used to measure the results that adoption programs produce, as well as upcoming research that will shed more light on how to create successful programs.
Revenue Chat with Tony DUrso, welcomes Donovan Kovar, the Digital Marketing Expert. As CEO and Chief Strategist of the 24-7 Sales Agency, he manages over $1 million in advertising for successful online businesses, working with each one to reduce waste, improve conversion and increase their bottom line.
Exhibiting a high level of competence, his agency was selected to be part of Google’s AdWords Agency Program, which is something not to be taken lightly, and speaks volumes in itself. In fact, now that Donovan is on the “inside” at Google, he takes part in higher level support and tools that are not available to others. That’s a significant feather in anyone’s cap. With the online marketing landscape continuously evolving, only the fittest keep on surviving. Donovan’s expertise is high level in just about anything you can think of in terms of online digital marketing. One client received a 1300% increase overnight as an example.
From AdWords to geo-targeting; from link building to using the right keywords; from re-marketing to visitors on Facebook to conversion optimization, you could say he has a “been there, I can handle that” attitude in being able to take any company to a higher level of leads, sales and conversions.
If you have ever thrown money down the drain doing online marketing with insufficient return, this interview may just be your godsend.

Lots of software startups make it into Beta, one of the early stages where they get to test out their new idea in the real world. Few make it out.
Coupon Wallet appears to be one of those making it out of Beta and into the world of paying customers. The Sterling Heights-based startup that calls the Macomb-OU INCubator home converted its first users into customers earlier this summer.
Coupon Wallet, a marketing platform founded in October 2012 as a technological solution for the transition from paper coupons to a digital alternative, is an end-to-end digital coupon platform that includes managed marketing services and point-of-sale integration.

Today's Life Interrupted Radio's guest Judy van Niekerk points out, it’s not just about leaving a legacy, it’s about creating a living legacy. Judy’s life story could have turned out so different. Yet, she didn’t let a life of childhood torture stop her.
Years ago, after waking up from yet another “overdose coma,” Judy had a “major light-bulb moment” where she discovered “What she was here to do.” She garnered up the courage to share her gifts and captured global media attention, including The BBC, RTE and Cosmopolitan and many others. This one act of courage, where she courageously shared her story of sexual abuse from her father caused the reporting of sexual assault in Ireland to increased by 75%.
Today, Judy is committed to making a difference based on what she learned by surviving her traumatic childhood challenges. She now works tirelessly to empower people to love and honor themselves regardless of what happened in their lives.
Her latest revolution is to empower women through “The Digital Bra,” a revolutionary hi-tech solution to a serious problem for women around the world by making customized bras for women irrespective of their shape and size. "Women deserve the perfect fit!" Judy shared that “The Digital Bra (www.thedigitalbra.com) is not just a high-tech innovation. It allows women to finally embrace and love their bodies just like Judy learned to do as she discovered how to capitalize from her challenges." Judy will share with us:
• How to survive, move through and THRIVE,
• How to connect to your greater self to find your gifts,
• How to create a permanent state of inspiration, compassion and self love.
Listen to Judy’s truly inspirational story of courage, championing and conquering.

EACH HALLOWEEN SEASON for the past ten years the Rolling Darkness Revue, a traveling fraternity of some of horror fiction’s premier talents, has presented an evening of new supernatural stories in celebration of the genre’s favorite holiday. A full theatrical experience which incorporates comedy, drama, and live music to illuminate and enhance the Halloween tradition of ghost story readings, the Revue was founded by Peter Atkins, Dennis Etchison, and Glen Hirshberg in 2004 and has been curated by Atkins & Hirshberg since 2006. The Revue began performing in bookstores, libraries, and parking lots, making the move to small theatres in 2009 as the show grew in nature (and audience). As well as becoming an October ritual for fans and readers, RDR has received glowing notices from, among others, the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition. Stories which have premiered at the Revue have many times been selected for inclusion in annual ‘Year’s Best’ anthologies from such noted editors as Ellen Datlow, Stephen Jones, and Paula Guran, and guest authors over the life of the show have included such genre and mainstream notables as Norman Partridge, Nancy Holder, Aimee Bender, Michael Blumlein, and Kim Newman. From the beginning, live music has been provided by the noted local ambient musicians Jonas Yip & Rex Flowers and, since 2009, acclaimed local actor Kevin Gregg has become an invaluable part of the cast. PETER ATKINS: Author of Morningstar, Big Thunder, Rumours of the Marvellous, and the movies Wishmaster and Hellraiser II-IV. “Atkins is a brilliant supplier of shudders and splendors” – Clive Barker. GLEN HIRSHBERG: Award-winning author of The Two Sams, American Morons, and Motherless Child. “A writer to watch and treasure” – Peter Straub.
