A Modern Marketer’s Guide to trends in Gaming, AR/VR & NFTs
Facebook’s rebrand to Meta, a Metaverse company, has left most of us wondering what exactly is the Metaverse and how does it affect those working and creating inside marketing and advertising.
Joe Cox, the Pop-Marketer will take you on a guided tour of the Metaverse, beyond the hype, exploring the technologies & trends behind this new vision of the internet and what you can do now to make sure your career is optimized for pioneering this rich space that some call the creator economy.
We’ll learn why gaming is the new social media, how virtual influencers are taking over the streams and what in the actual hell an NFT is and why it matters way more beyond $1 million dollar jpegs.
