I asked Todd Greene, co-founder and CEO of Loyalize to come on to UNTETHER.tv and talk about how companies and brands can engage with their customers in real-time from their smartphones or tablets.
Often times the gap between our couch and the television or our seats and the stage may be only a few feet but the distance is far greater than that when we want to interact or offer an opinion on what we are watching or participating in. This entire episode is focused on how and why companies are and should be taking advantage of the mobile platform to gain insight and start conversations with their customers.
** please note that there is some hissing in the audio that I can’t seem to get rid of. If you have any suggestions, please let me know and I’ll repost. Thanks!
