#033: Strangest Handyman Jobs?

Welcome back! Later on in the show we’re talking about some of our strangest encounters back in the days of doing handyman work. We’re also chatting about modern lives where information is fed to us via new mediums such as YouTube, podcasts and social media. Is there life after YouTube? How do you go back to working a normal job when you’re ‘YouTube famous’?? We’ve also got some really exciting news for you all – the show is now weekly for all Patreon supporters! If you don’t want to do the Patreon thing you can still listen to the usual show every 2 weeks but we’re ditching the aftershow in favour of a proper extra weekly show instead.

We’re back for Season 4 of the Measuring Up Podcast and we have so much to tell you! It’s only been a few months since the last episode but some pretty major changes are afoot in terms of where we take this whole ‘YouTube thing’. We also have a bit of a chat about affiliate marketing and the total lack of preparedness most UK businesses seem to have for this essential sales funnel… and on a related note, we so often hear horrific stories of cowboy builders. Since people are starting to realise that all reviews are fake, how can customers actually find good trades people?
