This Old Marketing

In this episode number 89, Joe and Robert discuss LinkedIn and Google news this week.  LinkedIn limits your right to download contacts and, alas, Google+ is no more (we think). In other news, AOL releases some new content marketing research that may not be about content marketing and we find out that the inbound marketing economy really has nothing to do with inbound marketing.  Rants and raves include a McKinsey report and deals from Univision and HBO.  This week's #ThisOldMarketing example of the week: Flight Centre.

In this episode number 88 of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss how more and more how-to videos are being pumped into YouTube, and what marketers need to do about it.  Then the boys chat about major research surrounding trust and culture, both of which need sound content marketing strategies. To cap it all off, our trusty podcasters outline what the top 200 advertisers spent last year, and how content marketing is still such a small thing when it comes to paid media.  Raves include Mark Zuckerberg and Comic-con.  This week's TOM example of the week: Disney.

In this episode number 87, Joe and Robert discuss the new Upworthy business model in detail, and what businesses and marketers can learn from it.  In addition, the boys discuss what, when and why marketers should outsource content marketing, and follow that with a disturbing article about branded content and advertising.  Rants and raves include an HBR article that truly bothered Robert, and an amazing story around the autism education movement from Joe.  This week's TOM example of the week: Kraft Music Hall.
