What’s Old in Marketing Is New Again, and What’s New Is Old #2630
December 08, 2023

In episode #2630, We discuss the concept of “what’s old is new again” in marketing. We highlight the importance of considering industry-specific strategies and adapting them to the current market conditions. We provide examples of how old marketing channels, like direct mail, can still be effective when targeting specific audiences. We also discuss the limitations of relying solely on new marketing techniques, such as using AI-generated content, and emphasize the importance of expertise, authority, and trust in creating valuable content.
