Dust off that digital transformation plan and add Web3
With so many factors not yet cemented, here's an approach that will allow your company to build a future-proof foundation
This week’s email was written to “Stop Making Stupid People Famous” off the album Spiritual Machines II by Our Lady Peace.
With all the buzz about the crypto crash and plenty of unimpressive branded metaverse + NFT projects clogging our feeds, how does a brand get started in learning #Web3 and being ready for the future of social? I wrote about that tension for MediaPost this week, including some actionable advice we’ve already implemented on clients at TSL: 3 Ways To Invest In Web3 That Won't Break the Bank.
If you’re interested in learning more about Web3 trends, implementing Web3 for your brand, and/or scheduling a Future of Social presentation with me for your company, fill out this form!
ALSO… I was also quoted in the latest issue of Twin Cities Business this week: Taking the Plunge: You don’t have to be a fan of NFTs to see the value in bringing Web3 trailblazers to Minnesota.
Lastly, if you’re local to the Minneapolis area and are interested in learning more about the local Web3 community and the impact of art + technology, I highly recommend you attend Experiential Sensory Collective v4 this Saturday night. Tickets are pretty affordable, plus I’ll be there and will buy you a drink.
