212: The Genesis Planet Episode

This Old Marketing with Pulizzi and Rose

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


Episode 212 leads with a detailed discussion of subscription fatigue and what we as marketers and consumers need to do about it (https://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/336981/publishers-face-another-challenge-subscription-f.html).

Then the boys go in-depth about the opportunities in print media (https://whatsnewinpublishing.com/2019/07/opinion-why-digitally-native-brands-are-turning-to-print/) and the increasingly complex role of the CMO (https://www.mckinsey.com/business-functions/marketing-and-sales/our-insights/how-to-unlock-marketing-led-growth-data-creativity-and-credibility).

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).

The show concludes with Robert's rave about B2B's taking back their websites (https://velocitypartners.com/blog/b2b-marketers-take-back-your-website/) and his rant on cause marketing (https://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/cause-marketing-isnt-working-for-young-people/). Joe raves about Raspberry Pi's print magazines purchase (https://www.pressgazette.co.uk/dennis-publishing-sells-off-two-magazines-to-computer-manufacturer-raspberry-pi-and-looks-to-shift-third-title/) and rants about Mailchimp presents (https://mailchimp.com/presents/).
