This Old Marketing

In episode 213 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss the death of influencer marketing, which isn't dead at all...just changing.

Two big brands, Outdoor Voice and Staples, launch content brands The Recreationalist and Worklife. The opportunities in voice marketing have never been better. Audiobooks are growing at 25 percent and Alexa devices count more than 100 million, yet there are very few Alexa Skills, opening a content gap.

In rants and raves, Joe raves about the New York Times enewsletter program, while Robert comments about why MarTech as marketing is a scary proposition.

After 577 days #This Old Marketing, with author/entrepreneur Joe Pulizzi and strategist Robert Rose, returns in a blaze of glory.

The news concludes with a heated discussion about brand purpose (check out https://martechseries.com/sales-marketing/programmatic-buying/turning-point-ad-industry-kfc-unilever-deloitte-top-marketers-reflect-cannes-lions/ as well as this amazing Steve Jobs' speech from 1997 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8dUExqjNog).
