2024 Content Marketing Predictions Show [Special Episode] (407)

It's here! The annual episode where Robert and Joe predict everything that will not go right in the content marketing and media world. This year, the boys predict: A social media collapse - TikTok and YouTube see big surges as the waves of the strike Tsunami hit. AI goes mainstream and actually starts to earn its keep – but NOT in creating externally focused content  but rather conversational Advertising and behind the scenes marketing work. Brands go "all in" on owned media  - especially video. Local news and journalism make a big comeback. At least three, major brands launch new, shiny print publications and send them through the post. X will see a huge advertising turnaround (due to the fact that most everyone left). More eyeballs for less dollars. Newsletters will continue their hot stream, led by creator referral networks, and you'll see more creators stop producing their lagging podcasts. More AI-driven news networks continue to launch, followed by an AI running for president in 2028.

How do you think the development of AI-based search affects brands willingness to make content available to search engines? Will people start putting more of their content behind a gate? 2. From a content and marketing perspective – where are you most BULLISH, and where are you most CONCERNED about the impact AI is likely to have in the short and medium term? 3. I’m going to come back to the question that I asked at MarketingProfs, which is – do you think MarketingAI becomes an OS in the Marketing Department?  In other words you Buy Microsoft AI or Amazon AI and it powers your email analytics, headline writing, copywriting, and first-party data pattern matching… OR… Do you think that suite solutions are more likely to just include whatever flavor of AI they buuild into their applications? 4. What are some of the developments in Marketing Artificial Intelligence that we’re NOT talking about?

The boys cover the ongoing Spotify/Joe Rogan saga, while Robert's new book title should be "Epic Marketing Rant." The continuing soap opera at Spotify calls into question the editorial control needs of a platform. And yes, platform also means media company. Buzzfeed outs the BAYC founders. Was this the right thing to do? And, really? Buzzfeed? More than 50 percent of all ad spending in 2022 will go to three companies. Joe thinks we need to start supporting small, niche content creators. And we have three company examples experimenting with the Metaverse. Well, not really. In rants and raves, Joe comments about the ability to create IP and NOT own an NFT, while Robert delivers an epic rant around marketing measurement. --------- Liked this show?

NFTs, Advertising and Football Collide (303)

A small investment group tries to pry Forbes away from a SPAC, while Buzzfeed's stock drops by 50 percent inside its shiny new SPAC. What does this mean for media and content creators moving forward? In the UK, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) says the Arsenal Football Club violated advertising rules with the launch of its $AFC token. (also, here's a great podcast overview from the BBC on tokens in the UK.) Rants and raves include Joe's take on TikTok becoming the #1 web property on the planet, while Robert gives us this wonderful holiday poem.   Twas the Night Before Break by Robert Rose   ’Twas the night before break, #TheStruggleWasReal, No marketer rested easy, discontent did they feel.   Budgets and plans hung by email attachments, In the hopes that VPs would approve their advancement.   Managers all sighed and climbed into their beds, While visions of new podcasts danced in their heads.   She in Lululemon and I in Cowboys gear  Had settled in for cocktails after a long, chaotic year   When online in my feeds, there arose such a clatter. I sprang open my Chrome to see what was the matter.   Away to my tabs, I clicked on them post haste, Tore open Google News to see just what we faced.   The headlines were filled with so much interruption – A luster of clickbait o’er this holiday disruption.   When what to my marketer’s eyes should appear? Nothing but omicron, crypto, stock crashes, and fear.     Suddenly a noise came so lively and quick, The voice I recognized could be only St. Nick!   With a whistle and a shout, he parked on my roof – His self-driving Tesla couldn’t distinguish the route.      As fast as Quibi proceeded to fail, St. Nick jumped to his MacBook and opened email.   “Now budgets! Now plans! Now audits! Now tech!      On process! On content! On calendars in check!”    He flew ’cross the keyboard, dramatically smashed Send, Gave us all our approvals, extending our content spend.     He spoke not a word but held his hand to his ear Listening for mail notifications across the world to appear.   Then laying his finger aside of his nose He winked and said, “Tell it well, Robert Rose.”   St. Nick sprang to his Tesla, gave me a quick wave, Then turned and confided, “Some plans even Ryan Reynolds can’t save.   “But for all the content marketing folk and for you, I wish you good times in 2022.”   And then he flew off, with less noise than in Clubhouse Waving off all the fear, the uncertainty, the doubts.   Then I heard him exclaim as he shifted into “gear,”  “Happy Holidays to all and a Happy New Year!” --------- Liked this show?

Special Episode 300: From Apple to Disney and Why We Still Hate Facebook

Special thanks to Gary Busey for his amazing introduction, to Pamela Muldoon for her sultry voice, and to JK Kalinowski for his design chops. Welcome to a very special 300th episode of This Old Marketing. Big shout out to the sponsor of this episode, Parse.ly, who stepped up and supported this show when no one else would. How does this show work? Joe and Robert are going to take your questions - and we've assembled 10 of the finest and best questions -  yeah, pretty much the ones we felt like answering.  Some of them came through audio...and some of them came through our hashtag on Twitter...but all of them we assume came with love and affection.  For those ten people who submitted questions: we'll be reaching out after the show to find out how to get you your prizes. As we mentioned, we're giving away a copy of Killing Marketing (either in print or in Kindle version) AND $50 in $TILT Coin. We've separated the questions into two basic categories: industry trends and questions about us and the show. INDUSTRY QUESTIONS SEGMENT QUESTION #1 Our first question comes in two parts... The first part is via the Twitter Hashtag and it's from Dennis Shiao. On this show for the last 300 episodes, you've advised us forever to not build our content house on rented land.  With Web 3.0 now facing us - is it possible that the entire concept of rented land goes away? The second part comes from email - and is from José Delameilleure. I am a free lance content writer from Belgium. I work in the niche of B2B IT, and usually in even deeper niches like Identity and Access Management, IoT, Artificial Intelligence,... In these niches, we are usually forced to use 'rented land' like LinkedIn to get our messages out. What can we do to claim our own piece of land and attract visitors to it?  QUESTION #2 Our next question also comes via the Twitter Hashtag and is from Jared Opfer. What business had the biggest miss in the last 12 months?  Who has the biggest opportunity in the next 12 months? QUESTION #3 Our next question is from our friend Bernie Borges through the Contact Form on our Website. I'm looking for examples of blockchain solutions for B2B and I don't see them. All the talk about brands planning their NFTs are B2C brands like Disney and Starbucks. What can B2B brands like HubSpot, Oracle and CMI do on the blockchain? Should they mint social tokens? Etc. What's your take? QUESTION 4 The next question comes from Eddie Naranjo via the contact form on the site. The question is given the current transition from Web 2 to Web 3 - which business model and tilt would you use to bootstrap a new business for a person who loves Wordpress design, content marketing, affiliate marketing and is really curious about crypto, NFTs and a way to tokenize products or services. QUESTION 5 Our next question is the last in our industry space from Yen Yee  who asked this question via the hashtag on Twitter. What is the current content marketing technology stack at CMI Content, The Content Advisory and The Tilt? ------------ This week's sponsor: Parse.ly Is your content team still split between creative types and numbers people?   How many people on your team actually use Google Analytics every day?   Parse.ly is a content analytics platform built to make it easy for your writers, creators, and marketers to become data driven.   Make it easy for your team to understand what content drives conversions. Make it easy for them to see what’s working—and do more of that. Make it easy to prove the impact content has on your business, every day.   In one study, a forty person content team only had eight people using Google Analytics frequently. In other words, they weren’t data driven.   Then they switched to Parse.ly. Now, 33 out of 40 people are using Parse.ly to drive results for their business. It’s just that much easier. They’re no longer split between creative types and numbers people—they’re both.   If you’re ready to start understanding the true value of your content and get out in front of your competition. Get a free content analysis from a Parse.ly product specialist by visiting: parse.ly/joe. ------------ QUESTION 6 Our question number six comes from Annie Schiffmann and it's our first audio question. How has the show evolved over 300 episodes.  If I looked at episode 99, 199 and 299 how would you say the show has evolved? QUESTION 7 The Next question is from Esben Johansen and comes via the Twitter Hashtag. If you could add one thing to your fantastic book Killing Marketing what would it be? QUESTION 8 The next question is from John Morgan and comes via the Email Contact Form. Of all the trends that you've covered over the last 8 years, which has been the most surprising, and what has lasted that you didn't think would last? QUESTION 9 Is another audio question - and it comes from our friend Ian Truscott. What is your favorite cocktail? QUESTION 10 Our last question comes from Rebecca and is through the Email Contact Us Form. As you look out to the future of Content Marketing and Content Creators - what do you guys think you'll be talking about on your 400th episode? Thanks to all our wonderful listeners for making this possible. We love you. --------- Liked this show? SUBSCRIBE to this podcast on Spotify, Apple, Google and more.

NFTs for Marketing: Stunts vs. Utility (298)

Is Disney going metaverse? Of course they are, but should they at this point? Joe and Robert discuss exactly what Disney needs to do (and, of course, they will be correct).

So will Facebook. And with Microsoft not buying Discord, who will? Breaking news: Apple will offer revamped podcast subscriptions and help drive podcaster revenue. Good?

Charmin's NFT Jumps the Shark (263)

The Oscars are back and guess what? Netflix absolutely crushed it (and yes, we called it years ago).

Axios details the ever-increasing amount of gambling properties getting into the content marketing game.

CRMs are clogged with leads that, truth be told, get very little attention, usually in the form of nurture automation, a.k.a. pre-defined email sequence. The result? Few leads are converted and qualified into SQLs. Money spent goes to waste as sales team don’t have the capacity to properly qualify leads resulting in cold to lukewarm leads being pushed to sales calls just to ‘fill in the quota’, so to speak. This time, it’s time that’s wasted. You know where this is going… there must be a better way... Enter Exceed, intelligent AI that autonomously and automatically nurtures and qualifies leads. Exceed digs into your CRM and starts engaging leads in two-way conversations via email, website chat and text messages. The interactions are wholly conversational and personalized based on user and historical data. Once the AI qualifies a lead it independently books a sales call with the relevant sales rep and – immediately – goes back to qualifying more leads.  https://exceed.ai/ ------ Catch past episodes show notes at ThisOldMarketing.site.

Twitter announced stellar earnings, including a possible subscription plan roll out. In addition, Twitter is getting aggressive with Spaces (their Clubhouse competitor).

Twitter was abuzz this week when Hubspot announced their purchase of newsletter/small-business media company the Hustle. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. That said, everyone is very happy (except tech companies and traditional media). Clubhouse, now worth a billion dollars, says it's getting into the subscription game. Good idea?

Social Media Is the Dread Pirate Roberts of Marketing (254)

This week on This Old Marketing, Joe and Robert cover Amazon taking down Parler. Does it tell us anything about free speech? And, while that was happening, someone scraped all Parler's data. The run on music archives continues, with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder getting a boat load of cash for songs we've never heard. How does the media rebound? By becoming human again of course. Axios launched a 10k subscription product to help brands communicate better internally. They may not have priced it high enough. And as a cake topper, over 1,000 brands unknowingly ran ads against articles promoting conspiracy theories. We are shocked. In rants and raves, Joe raves about Mr Beast's origin story, while Robert gushes over Edelman's Trust Barometer. Catch past episodes show notes at ThisOldMarketing.site.

Content Acquisitions Go Parabolic (253)

In episode 253 of This Old Marketing, Joe and Robert kick off the show with Roku's possible purchase of Quibi content (yes, that Quibi). Roku, whose stock has appreciated over 1,000 percent in just a few years, is taking its playbook directly from the Netflix content model. There is a podcasting gold rush and it looks like it may turn out to be a two-company party (Amazon vs. Spotify). But the opportunity isn't just podcasting, but all audio content. 2021 may be the year of text to audio. Media and content purchases went crazy this week, with MARQUE buying Closet Full of Cash, Sykes buying The Penny Hoarder, and Wyndham Destinations buying Travel + Leisure. Is this just the start? Uh...short answer is yes. Rants and raves include a movement from monthly to quarterly subscriptions and Joe's call for another look at print media. Robert discusses the implications of the new Clubhouse social media app and the case for two spaces after a period.

The boys kick off the show with highlights from the just finished Content Marketing World 2020. The streaming wars have begun. Disney has committed to it. Amazon and Apple are dabbling in it.

In episode 220 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss the bold move by Twitter, who announced they will remove political ads from their platform in a few weeks.

Let's all just pause right to ponder that possibility. Then the boys dissect the new Recur network from ProfitWell...discussing the good, the bad and the ugly. Is it smart to launch 12 shows at the same time or should ProfitWell do one thing great and move on to the next one? In other news, Joe unpacks how Twitch.tv (owned by Amazon) took over streaming legend Ninja's platform without asking, "accidentally" showing porn. After that, 2012 called and wanted it's "Marriott is now a media company" article back (Robert points out everything wrong and right about this article).

In episode 215 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss Twitter's decision to ban "state-run" media and how this will, effectively, lead to a huge change in how content is published on social media. Social media sites, like Facebook and YouTube, know their biggest liability is the created content on their platform. We are just now seeing the beginning days of the end of social media as we know it. In other news, Tumblr sells for $3 million (down from $1.1 billion), marketing research shows that marketers think pretty highly of themselves, and Amazon's publishing juggernaut is even bigger than you think.

214: Brand Marketers (Hopefully) Starting to Sniff Acquisition Opportunities

In episode 214 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss the death of journalism (through newspaper media) and how brands are missing an opportunity by not purchasing more newspaper properties. Procter & Gamble (P&G) is growing like crazy but spending less on advertising than ever before. The boys think they know the reason, including help from Home Made Simple. More B2B and B2C brands are investing in print magazines, including the likes of REI and Goose Island. Opportunity? And FIPP suggests that future growth lies in niche media and underserved international populations. In rants and raves, Joe raves iQiyi's push into Chinese vertical dramas and believes that Stanford's M&A program is something brand marketers and CMO's need to pay attention to. Hint: Acquiring content brands instead of starting them fresh. Robert thinks that the move away from the CMO is like moving deck chairs (with kudos to this Ian Truscott post). ------ Subscribe to PNR: This Old Marketing at iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, Spotify or wherever you listen to fine podcasts.

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.
