Quotes

 

Joe: “Look at Redbull, Redbull has Redbull the energy drink company, and Redbull media house. The two of them separate are both very valuable but the two of them combined are even 3x, 4x, 5x that.” (19:36)

 

Joe: “Seven, eight years ago when we talked about the largest media companies in the future are not going to be media companies. They’re going to be Starbucks or Coca-Cola, well here’s the example of what we’re seeing.” (23:46)

 

Robert: “If I’m the CMO of Hubspot, my biggest question about this kind of program would be "How is it helping us build our audience rather than helping content creators build theirs?”  (25:22)

 

Joe: “This is not the company doing this… This is just an individual owner that can take this… This is truly, ‘I have bought an NFT and now I can do things with this because the smart contract tells me I can.” (42:07)

 

Robert: “Take advantage of the most popular brands that are in NFTs at any given moment. Buy an NFT and stick it on your products. And, create private label brands for clothing etc.” (47:36)
