Podcast EP 12 Rewind: Introducing The Parketing Collective and Ultra Distances with New Shoe Day

“Harder Than It Looks: Parking Uncovered is our podcast that we use to facilitate connections and illuminate solutions to common problems within the parking and mobility industry.

We aim to do so by highlighting the voices of experts in the space, discussing trends and forward-looking technological innovations, and providing professional food for thought. All in an effort to help one another get better at what we know is harder than it looks…parking a car.

Today, we’re rewinding and recapping Episode 12: Introducing: the Parketing Collective ft Heidi Barber, Sarah Becherer, and RJ Juliano, and Ultra Distances with New Shoe Day ft Casey Crouse.

This episode is a masterclass in parking marketing or “Parketing.” We sat down with 3 incredible marketing leaders in parking, RJ Juliano, Sarah Becherer, and our own Heidi Barber, who are introducing the new “Parking Collective.”
