Riffing on the future of digital marketing with Mitch Joel

mark schaefer and mitch joel

A couple times a year I get the opportunity to chat with Mitch Joel on his industry-leading podcast, Six Pixels of Separation.  Some have called us the Odd Couple of Marketing and while we may disagree at times, you are always sure to get a lively and thought-provoking discussion when the two of us get together.

Mitch is an extraordinary thinker and the author of one of my favorite business books, Ctrl Alt Delete: Reboot Your Business. Reboot Your Life. Your Future Depends on It.  Through his podcast, agency, and speaking schedule, he gets to interact with some of the top marketing minds in the world.

Last week we went head-to-head on the future of digital marketing and it was one of the most energizing professional conversations I have had in a long time. Mitch Joel is a master interviewer and he always pushes me in new directions.

I just had to share this interview with you:

  • Rockin’hot photo fellas:) Love the conversation about interactive, immersive experiences and/or whether or not wearable augmented reality will be a “tough beast”…will things be connected on existing “things” and/or will we wear it? Interesting thoughts. Cheers! Kaarina

  • After I came back from CES four years ago, I wrote this: https://www.socialstrata.com/blog/ces-wrapup-my-mindblowing-prediction

    I stand by my prediction…devices specifically devoted to “the internet” are going away. Soon.

    Great convo between you and Mitch, I loved being a fly on the wall!
