  23. 23. #INBOUND17 ICOs C R O W D F U N D I N G O N S T E R O I D S

  31. 31. #INBOUND17 Marketing with Blockchain tech?
  32. 32. #INBOUND17 1. Half of Advertisement is wasted; but not sure which half 2. Attention is Free 3. Data is plenty, cheap and managed by few central organizations 1. With Blockchain Technology, some Foundational believes are not true anymore:
  33. 33. #INBOUND17 1. Dramatically different experience than the one we have today. 2. New payment and transaction models. 3. Customer has a cryptographic proof to her identity and credentials. • E.g. Customer can prove eligibility to shop on your site as a US citizen without telling you any personal information whatsoever. 4. No tracking imposed on the customer (decentralized apps). Marketing with B.C. Tech tomorrow?
  34. 34. #INBOUND17 1. Advertising: one of the first disciplines to be disrupted by blockchain technology. Customers maintain their own identity and control over their information Marketers will have to pay each individual to get their attention. 1. Good news: much greater trust in knowing that your advertising and outreach efforts are going exactly where you intended them to go. 2. Bad news: “Pay for Attention” required (attention of others will come with a price tag) Marketing
  35. 35. #INBOUND17 Today: Advertisers pay Google or Facebook. Tomorrow: Advertisers pay individual (through large enterprise grade tools) Imagine: • Marketplace where each person will set a price for their guaranteed attention. • Advertisers will choose to pay an individual’s price or not. • If Advertiser pays, they will get a response that is verifiable from that individual. Pay for Attention in a blockchain- world?
  36. 36. #INBOUND17 1. Tracking customer behavior across websites?  will become a greater challenge 2. Move to Blockchain-based social networks that preserve anonymity like Mastodon or Steemit (decentralized versions of Twitter and Reddit)? 3. Disintermediation of Twitter and Facebook (unless they decentralize themselves first) From centralized to de-centralized social media?
  37. 37. #INBOUND17 1. When data moves out of proprietary systems onto open blockchains: • Data itself is no longer a competitive advantage • Interpreting the data becomes the advantage Blockchain and Data

  40. 40. #INBOUND17 Micro Transactions for new loyalty and incentive models Anything that has to do with rewards, loyalty programs and Micro payments will likely be touched and influenced by blockchain technology. Incentive models not economically viable today, will likely change these games fundamentally
  41. 41. #INBOUND17 ▪ Problem: Most customers abandon loyalty rewards programs due to frustrations with the time required to obtain meaningful rewards ▪ Solution: Digital token programmability removes friction from the settlement of loyalty points across multiple programs and companies. ▪ Loyalty program interoperability ▪ Loyalty point transferability and management ▪ Ownership of perks can be easily tracked, transferred, and fine-sliced into bits for micro-redemptions; potentially creating new markets for consumers of a brand or lifestyle ▪ Opportunity: New areas for innovation, particularly at the regional and local level. Loyalty Programs
  42. 42. #INBOUND17 1. 1. Marketers/agencies Win: 1. engage users and verify the message reach a (targeted) real human 2. 2. Publishers Win: 1. a fair exchange of value as rapidly as possible 2. Funding to generate more and/or better site content for their user base 3. 3. Users Win: 4. Access to content as inexpensively as possible 5. Without wasting attention on intrusive or irrelevant messaging 6. Without feeling they’re being spied on 1. With Blockchain Tech – All can be Winners
  43. 43. #INBOUND17 Blockchain Tech is here. Today. And growing strongly
  44. 44. #INBOUND17 1. 25 years ago: Experts seriously debated if people can make money on the Internet and if the users will accept marketing on this new medium. 2. New payment models do transform shopping behavior: 1.Credit Cards in the 1980s 2.WeChat pay (used by over 700 million people) over the last 5 years. 3. Marketing and advertisement need to keep up to support and leverage those opportunities. 4. Visionaries and startups: building business models enabled by B.C. Remember:
  45. 45. #INBOUND17 1. Everybody can transact with Everybody and add billions of people to marketplace 2. Transactions: 1. Any size 2. Cheap: fees could become “near zero” 3. Fast: “immutable” within seconds  new business, marketing, advertisement and collaboration models are possible 3. Impacts every “transaction step” from Compliance and Supply Chain Management to Advertisement, Marketing and Sales Impact of blockchain on consumers, business models, marketing and advertising:
  46. 46. #INBOUND17 Rethink Marketing and Advertisement to include deeper customer engagement: Rewards from customers for valuable content Loyalty and award programs Creation of market places
  47. 47. #INBOUND17 Make a Blockchain Tech Plan
