NEW JAMES BROWN SONG “WE GOT TO CHANGE” NOW PLAYING ON SMN RADIO VIA REPUBLIC/UNIVERSAL MUSIC ENTERPRISES

Three-Track We Got To Change EP Features Storming J.B.’s Lineup Starring Brothers Catfish and Bootsy Collins and “Funky Drummer” Clyde Stubblefield

RELEASED FEBRUARY 16, 2024 (Santa Monica, CA) – “Can you imagine James Brown saying, ‘We got to change’?’ Well, he did,” says William “Bootsy” Collins. “And who’s playing bass?  Little ol’ funky me. Let’s go!”

A never-before-released James Brown song, “We Got To Change,” stream HERE, made its debut February 16, 2024 on Republic/UMe and made its debut on SMN Radio March 14, 2024.

“James Brown always leaned into the social tip,” Bootsy continues. “He always was trying to keep the youngsters informed and the people informed on what’s going on. The new breed was coming in and certain things were going out. He loved to inform people on what was coming and what was going to be because he felt like he was part of it, and he was.”

Recorded at Miami’s Criteria Studios on August 16, 1970, “We Got To Change” was laid down during a pivotal period in the world of James Brown – a few months earlier, longtime members of his famed James Brown Orchestra had walked out.

Brown quickly assembled a new group anchored by guitarist Phelps “Catfish” Collins and bassist William “Bootsy” Collins, two young brothers from Cincinnati. They brought a harder edge and a fresh identity to Brown’s music on such singles as “Get Up (I Feel Like Being) a Sex Machine,” “Super Bad,” and “Soul Power.” Brown called them The J.B.’s.

Their Criteria session featured a reunion with one of Brown’s 1960s sidemen: the great Clyde Stubblefield. “The Funky Drummer,” as he was known, would grace several of Brown’s subsequent hits and become one of the most sampled drummers of the hip-hop era. Also on the track is James Brown’s longtime No. 2, Bobby Byrd, who is heard alongside Brown on the chorus.

 “We Got To Change” is another example of James Brown’s social outreach seen in singles like “Don’t Be a Dropout,” “Say It Loud I’m Black and I’m Proud,” “Get Up, Get Into It, Get Involved” and “King Heroin.”

It is also a testament to Brown’s diverse musical language, quoting from Little Jimmy Dickens’ 1949 hit “Take an Old Cold Tater (And Wait)” and the African-American anti-war spiritual, “Down by the Riverside.”

“The James Brown Revue invented the Funk,” says Funk author Rickey Vincent, “and the J.B.’s perfected it.” Newly unearthed and hitherto unheard, “We Got to Change” adds a critical page to the history of that perfection’s evolution.

How to Get Customers to Come Back and Make Another Purchase

Getting a customer to come in for the first time is a challenge, but the real goal is to help them come in again and again. If you are trying to figure out how to turn your one-time customers into lifetime customers, there are many things you can do to help make that happen. The better you are able to connect with your customers, the easier it will be for you to help them get what they need.

Give Them a Great Experience the First Time

Customers are more likely to return to places they already had good experiences with. That means you need to help your customers to have the best possible experience the very first time they interact with your business. Listening to their needs and giving them helpful information can really help your customers to have a better time and love your business more. Also, this will help them to remember your business fondly so the next time they need a product or service you provide, they will look for your business first.

Remind Them You Exist

Once your customer finishes their purchase, they may not think about your business anymore. But that doesn’t have to be the case! Collecting contact information can help you to keep your customers informed about upcoming events and sales so they stay in touch with what your business has to offer. In the world of the internet, you have even more options to help your customers remember that your business exists. You can even personalize push notifications for each customer’s individual needs.

Start a Referral Program

A referral program can be a great way to get customers in for the first time, but it can also be a good method for bringing your current customers back. When you set up your referral program, come up with a way to reward your current customers for making referrals. The best rewards actually bring the customers back to the store, like a gift card or a great discount. When you make a referral worth your customers’ time, they will be more likely to make great referrals and keep coming back.

Your business is already great, you just have to spend a little time bringing in the customers you are trying to keep. Having return customers is a great part of a sustainable business model. When you can connect with your customers you will build stronger relationships and loyalty.

An awesome website is a great first step to getting customers to return! Check out our web development packages here!

How to Increase Morale Among Your Employees

Employee morale is imperative to the success of your business. Employees with low morale will do worse work, be less productive, and foster poor work culture. Increasing employee morale will help your employees be more productive, which in turn will help your business be successful. You can increase morale by building trust, giving them more autonomy, and promoting a work-life balance.

Build Trust

Trust is essential in building a strong workforce. The most important elements of trust are transparency, respect, unity, showing you care, and trust building activities. Trust helps promote a positive work environment and will produce results. It can take a long time to build up trust, so it is imperative to foster an environment of trust from the beginning. You must work hard to ensure that the trust is not broken, or it is reconciled immediately. A good start to calculating trust is reflecting on if your expectations are clear, you are reliable, there is no gossip among the team, team members perform on their tasks, and if you trust your employees with new responsibilities.

Give Them More Autonomy

In the workplace, autonomy is giving your employees freedom with their work. This doesn’t mean they should work in isolation; however, it gives employees the empowerment to be a self-starter and take control over their work. Empowering employees to improve their jobs can boost morale and improve job satisfaction. When you give your employees autonomy, this signals trust. When employees feel trusted, they will more likely do quality work.

Promote Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is very important to the morale of your employees. About 20% of workers spend 5 or more hours at work with stress from their home life. Your workers are human beings with a life outside of their job. Their life could be very stressful with having a family, home responsibilities, health, and finances. Giving your employees options to manage these stressors is imperative to their morale. You can help with these stressors by offering flexible schedules, paid time off, and working from home options. This will allow you employees time to take care of their home life which will help them have more energy for their work.

Building trust, giving employees autonomy, and promoting a work-life balance will help to increase your employee’s morale. This will require being proactive. An increased morale will help your employees do quality work and help your business thrive.

Roadblocks Almost Every Business is Facing Right Now

Navigating the COVID-19 pandemic and its residual aftermath is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Businesses are facing unusual roadblocks that were nonexistent two years ago. To be successful, a business must adapt to their changing environment. Roadblocks almost every business is facing right now include keeping employees, supply chain issues, and finding customers. 

Keeping Employees 

One of the main challenges companies are facing post-pandemic is how to keep their employees. During the pandemic, people got used to the flexibility of remote work. According to PWC, employees are now willing to leave their jobs to maintain this flexibility, rather than return to the office. However, not every employee enjoys remote work, and not every job can adapt to remote workdays. It is important to consider the preference of your employees with where they work, health benefits, and attractive perks. This keeps you competitive in attracting and retaining the best talent your industry has to offer. 

Supply Chain Issues 

During the pandemic, operations across the world were halted. This has caused a severe supply chain issue with receiving items needed to operate. Bottlenecks around the world have caused record shortages of many products that consumers are used to having readily available. For example, the construction industry can’t deliver because of a shortage of crucial materials like lumbar. 

To combat this, it is wise to have multiple suppliers for your business. Healthy relationships between suppliers will put your needs at the top of the priority list. As Franchise Gator points out, staying in contact with your suppliers can help you be prepared. Thus, helping you reduce the impact supply chain issues have on your business. 

Finding Customers 

The number of existing businesses in every industry is astounding. There are countless companies competing for your customer’s attention. Even the biggest, most successful companies must work to find and retain customers. Finding customers starts with a clearly defined target audience. A specific client base will help you create content that caters specifically to your target demographic. Increase your brand awareness by getting more specific with marketing efforts. Public relations will also help build your brand and customer awareness. 

Today’s world presents unique challenges every competitive business must overcome. If you cannot compete in your management and manufacturing processes, you cannot compete for revenue. Remaining steady and flexible puts you in a better position to adjust easily to current roadblocks every business is currently facing.
