In this episode of #ThisOldMarketing, the boys talk investing in content as an asset, starting with an interesting perspective on using evergreen content over temporal content.  Apple looks like they are in the market for a content producer (although probably not Disney...yet) and (drum roll please), content marketing can now be scientifically proven (mic drop).  Rants and raves include the Pope and programmatic data. This week's TOM: Thomas Chippendale.

In this episode of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss how content marketing and advertising don't compete with each other and, believe it or not, are actually different (to some people's dismay). Facebook acts like a real media company, and influencer marketing is the biggest thing that no enterprise understands how to execute well.  Rants and raves include bots, bots and more bots.  This week's TOM example: OBEY.
