Aug 8: Righting the Wrongs of the Past

Aug 08, 2022

This past week was chock full o' meetings introducing our two newest team members, Amanda and Dayna, to our partners and the community. They've had an immediate impact on what Beeler.Tech can and will do in the future. It's so exciting to have them join the crew.

But don't call us a gang.

Most of you probably don't know the history of my family. It's fully documented for the world to see and yet history never tells our side of the story.

The Beeler Gang had a plan. If they took the sheriff's son, Tommy, they could make the sheriff resign and make $10,000 in the process. I have to admit that Stan Beeler made a mistake the day he abducted Tommy – there are more lawful ways to influence local politics than to resort to kidnapping. But to Stan, he was doing the right thing for HIS FAMILY! I would have done the same.

But in comes the Lone Ranger disguised as a doctor (entrapment!) and manipulates Stan into revealing where the Beelers were holding sick Tommy.

I'm getting too emotional to tell this story. Watch the Lone Ranger account of what happened, but remember it's HIS telling of the story:

Since this ugly incident in my family's history has happened, we've seen the Lone Ranger's legacy fade. The racism is striking but also his record as an employer who never offered Tonto benefits while it's clear he's a full-time employee.

But the stigma of "The Beeler Gang" remains. We're a crew. A posse. A team. But until history is rewritten, don't call us a gang.

Publisher Revenue Crossroads

Ideas and best practices for how publishers can drive revenue through direct-sold media sales
 

On October 20, we're hosting an invite-only one-day event focused on nothing but direct-sold and programmatic direct. We'll talk through the process from quote to cash and everything in between. The day will be Base Camp style, focusing on roundtable discussions on very specific topics. Collaboration is the call to action as we all work on growing revenue and efficiency at the same time.
 
We think you'd benefit from participating if you're in sales, client service, account management, or operations. You'll have the opportunity to take part in collaborative roundtable discussions with your peers as we discuss direct-sold media sales' strategic role in publishers' revenue strategy. Reach out to us if you're interested in attending

OMS Requirements Scorecard

Choosing an OMS is no small undertaking. It’s a big job, with implications for nearly every branch of your business. While each business is different, this scorecard was developed to help you consider important areas of your business. 

From there, you can create a checklist that reflects the unique requirements of each stakeholder group. The requirements you define can then be turned into an RFP for the vendors in your initial consideration set.

If you’re considering a new order management system, this OMS Requirements Scorecard can help in your decision-making process
