Yes! It’s the annual #ThisOldMarketing predictions episode.

This year, Robert and Joe bring you eight amazing and infallible marketing predictions that are sure to be wrong (but fun nonetheless).

This year’s marketing predictions include:

  1. Less Content and Simplicity to Drive Marketing Strategy in 2020 (Joe).
  2. Brand Journalism (or Content Marketing) is pushed forward by Social Corporate Responsibility (SCR) efforts (Robert).
  3. The drop in print has stopped. 2020 will see the resurgence of print media led by enterprise brands (Joe). Remember the ebook revolution that was supposed to happen?
  4. Ad Tech takes a crippling hit in 2020 (Robert).
  5. Microsoft will launch their own “Disney+” for business-to-business markets (Joe).
  6. AppleTV Plus will die (Joe, but Robert disagrees).
