Intuit's Audience Land Grab (289)

Intuit's $12 billion dollar purchase of Mailchimp is all about audience acquisition. And the boys talk more about much more.

Financial and tax services company Intuit ties the knot with Mailchimp, showing clearly that Intuit is trying to corner the SMB audience market.

Opensea, the eBay of NFTs, has an issue with insider trading. Joe and Robert use the time to talk about new NFT projects and what they are good for.

Clubhouse hires a publisher. Robert is still bearish. Joe takes a wait-and-see approach.

And CMO optimism is higher than ever. Are they right?

Rants and raves include a DAO powerpoint rave from Joe, while Robert gushes over a new trust survey.

1:08:46 Outro



Joe: “You’re seeing so many more of these small businesses launch and Intuit might be at the center of the creator economy, with a leg up over everyone else.”(15:10)

Robert: “ The ones that are going to be successful here [NFTs] are, the ones that, quite honestly, build a content and marketing and story strategy around what they’re doing.” (24:52)

Joe: “Clubhouse doesn’t have to be Facebook. It doesn’t have to have all the audiences. It can be more like a Twitter. If they just focus on their core creators… they need someone to come in, build talent and teach their audiences how to monetize… Everyone is focused on how do we help these creators help us.”  (32:33)

Robert: “Your money is made in the content consumer class and Clubhouse doesn’t have that right now… It’s going to become more irrelevant, unless they can shake it up.” (37:00)

Robert: “You not only need to assume that great content is going to be trusted by your audience, you need to make people care about it. You need people to care that what you’re doing needs to be trusted.” (1:02:43)
