Got NFTs, Metaverse, and web 3.0 on your marketing radar?
In a world where the digital and physical meet, metaverses offer an unprecedented opportunity to brands.
Lisa Buyer of The Buyer Group joined me on the SEJ Show to shed light on the Metaverse and what it is.
They talked about this new frontier that's perfect for marketers who want their business in front of consumers -and it's only getting started!
Meta is not the Metaverse. Meta is just one version of the Metaverse. We can't say what the Metaverse will look like because we're so early. –Lisa Buyer, 8:42
NFTs are very popular right now as art, which is excellent if you resonate with art, but the art also has to have some sort of utility, some sort of what it comes with. What are the uses and benefits I will get if I buy this NFT, or am I just buying a piece of art like I have a piece of art on my wall? –Lisa Buyer, 30:45
I see the whole web 3 movement as being decentralization. I don't remember anything being this exciting since the internet launched in the first place. –Loren Baker, 12:00

I see that brands are dedicating a portion of their marketing budget for the year to buying an NFT in a community that aligns with that brand's mission and vision.
So it's a way to embed yourself as a brand. You have to do it in the right way, it has to be authentic and transparent, and you have to be able to want to spend time in the community you're aligning yourself with.
Forget having to launch an NFT collection. Just find an NFT collection or community that matches what your brand stands for and invest in it.–Lisa Buyer, 32:46
The most popular NFTs you see are those from people changing their avatars. Those are great from a marketing perspective because people buy into these NFT projects because of the community. –Lisa Buyer, 22:39
NFTs are just a way to really have your community invest in each other and believe in each other. So I think it's the next generation of community building. –Lisa Buyer, 36:12
