5 Top Marketing Insights from Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for Marketers

Pokémon GO used marketing gamification and AR, and why Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will follow in its footsteps. Until last weekend, Potter fans could only imagine the Wizarding World. Now, both Harry Potter and Pokémon fans can experience this magical world in Harry Potter GO, or Harry Potter: Wizards Unite as it’s officially called. The player’s mission is that magical things are happening in the Muggle [non-magical] world and the player’s job is to capture these magical beings before any muggle sees.

The practice of gently coaxing a prospective client towards a buying decision by serving them useful and relevant content was invented long before the phrase was coined. Very, very long before. Here's a classic example of true, by-the-book (no pun intended) content marketing, often brought up in lectures and marketing classes. It takes us back to France in the year 1900. Two brothers, Édouard and André, were worried about their dwindling sales figures. They manufactured and sold car tyres and business was not good. Cars were a fairly recent invention in 1900, and the public hadn't yet reali

Bringing events into the digital age with integrated marketing

Data has become an important ingredient in all marketing operations and provides companies with a way to measure the success of their campaigns and justify their ever-growing marketing budgets. Marketing is increasingly less about creative work and more about using analytics to optimize and target campaigns.
