In the conclusion of our Summer 2016 digital marketing wrap-up on the Jim Blasingame Show, Jim and I talk marketing and the IoT.
You know we're entering new territory when Amazon is rolling out a Dash button for Mentos.
Jim's show focuses on startups and SMBs, so the discussion speaks to trends through that lens.
As things turned out, Jim and I got so engrossed in our conversation, we never got a chance to talk about what is probably the #1 buzz-generating digital marketing news story of the summer: Pokémon GO.
In the end, we decided to save that for another show, and perhaps that's for the better.
Even as word spreads that the game may not have as much GO in it as some thought (and with even Target appropriating its most conspicuous icon these days) the game's larger lessons for marketing in the age of augmented reality may be better absorbed with a little more distance from Pikachu's big moment.
Besides, we don't want it to completely overshadow some of the other major trends from the summer that was.
