#031: Ch ch ch changes!

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?

#029: Do Instagram care about Copyright?

Loads to talk about today! Peter’s bedside tables are finally out of his workshop and Andy has had some interesting adventures with a viral post on Instagram.

#028: Soundproofing Workshops & UK New Builds

We’re back to normality after Makers Central… well, not quite. We’re chatting more about new build housing issues in the UK – from crazily poor standards of construction through to what Andy found hidden in the wall of his new build house. The UK housing industry is broken and we don’t know how to fix it. Will the Japanese show us how it’s done? Access the aftershow at: https://www.patreon.com/measuringuppodcast
