The Future is Now: Pivot Your Marketing Strategy for Web 3.0 & the Metaverse
July 21 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Web 3.0 isn’t just cryptocurrency and the blockchain; it is the next iteration of the internet. Web 1.0 was about information, 2.0 was/is social, and web 3.0 is about the experience. Virtual reality, augmented reality, Holograms, NFTs, Crypto, Social Tokens, and Discord are all a part of a new decentralized world. It is already here with beauty brands and home décor using AR to market their products. Big brands like Coca-Cola use NFTs to bring awareness to social causes, and VR is being used to bring people together. We need to look ahead at this new version of the web and figure out how marketing plays a role. We assess that a massive key to success is online community building and management.
We know it’s a mind-blowing concept, but remember the Wild West of AOL Instant Messenger? Remember how cool and dangerous chat rooms were in 1998? It’s time to dust off your boots and put on your ten-gallon hat because we are entering the Wild Web 3.0.
