Pokemon Go. Its not often we see something this massive disrupt the planet, let alone business's.
It took Twitter 10 years to establish the reach they have online.
It took Pokemon Go under 2 weeks to break their record.
That's how massive it is. It was created out of the Google Maps company 5 years ago and they formed a new company specifically for this. See that local connection there? So we know this is only the first release of MUCH more to come. Pokemon Go is the first GEO Marketing game.
This new Geo Gaming will disrupt business more than Social Media.. Social Media is limited to Online Only. Geo Gaming like Pokemon Go, actually BRINGS people TO your Business, real people with real purchasing power right at your door step. So its a big call to say it will be bigger than social media but I'm right, its bringing social media to your door step. An incredible amount of power, never seen before.
I wanted to show you an example I found today. See this Yelp page? Notice the button with the words “PokeStop Nearby”? When you click it filters out all the other competitors with a PokeStop near them.
How about this example. The San Clemente Police Services are encouraging felons to come closer to the jail for Pokemon Go awards. Considering the fever this game has created, I bet the cops nab themselves a criminal!
That’s it for today. Watch for more about Pokemon Go marketing tips coming soon!
