Marketplace Tech

with Ben Johnson

Marketplace Tech for Thursday, July 10, 2014

Hundreds of thousands of electronic disability claims at the VA are languishing incomplete, but no one is sure why. Annie Baxter joins us to explain the problem and look at the knock-on effects of so many unprocessed claims. Then, Lindsey Turrentine, Editor-in-Chief of reviews at CNET, talks about LG’s kid-tracking device, KizON. Finally, what’s the fewest number of followers you can have and still pique the interest of advertisers – 10k? How do the offers you’d get from advertisers to pitch for them change when you have 100K, 500K, 1 million followers?  Tracy Samuelson takes a look at how companies and social media influencers find each other.
