This is one of those sessions where I could ask one question and sit back and listen forever. Ian has the context and experience to offer great insight into the mobile marketing industry – that and the fact that he’s been doing it for companies large and small for years now.
While the reason I asked Ian to come on to UNTETHER.tv was to talk about his newly launched Four Score service – which adds a layer of understanding of the impact of FourSquare on your brand – but this quickly evolved into a broad discussion on mobile marketing’s impact on local business and much more.
This is a seminal interview with a master marketer. Stop reading this and start watching the conversation.
