40: A Year For The History Books At Midwest Direct

Written by Dana Fowler Internal Marketing Coordinator

When we started The Plus Podcast in mid-2019 it was supposed to be a short-term marketing campaign to help us launch our new website. We did not foresee the success it would receive, with nearly 2000 listens, nor the joy we would get from making the podcast. At the beginning of 2020, we sat down and developed our marketing plan for the year, oblivious to what the year had in store for us. Even with all the curveballs, we were able to put out two episodes a month, and more on occasion. 

If nothing else, 2020 has been a year for the history books -- and especially here at Midwest. This year we introduced about 10 new pieces of equipment to help us increase capacity. Here in the marketing department, we maintained our regular publication and marketing schedule, publishing over 60 blogs, and 28 podcasts, including this one. We can easily say those are record-breaking numbers for us! Even with all of the chaos, we are so happy with the results.

In this episode of the podcast, we look back on everything we covered in 2020. If you missed a few episodes, we put it all into one place! Below you will find the links to all of the episodes we published in 2020 with brief descriptions of each. 

To thank you for all your support, we have even more great, relevant -- and just plain fun -- programming set for 2021. We can’t wait to share them with you. We don’t want you to miss a thing. Be sure to subscribe to The Plus Podcast now. 

One last thing...we truly appreciate your feedback, comments, and suggestions. If you have any questions, comments, or topics you want us to cover in 2021, please reach out to us

Listen to the Final Episode: Season Two of The Plus Podcast and hear our wrap up and anything you may have missed in 2020 -- a year for the history books!
