As we kick off 2008, lots of marketers are chattering about the opportunities that exist for mobile as an advertising and marketing channel. A couple of weeks ago I joined Buzz Marketing for Technology's Paul Dunay and MYXER's Jeff Sass (more about the guys at the bottom of the post) in a spirited discussion about the state of mobile and what marketers should be thinking about for the new year.
Listen to the podcast here (if you like what you hear, you can download the mp3 or subscribe to Paul's feed.) The podcast is co-produced by MarketingProfs (and posted at the MP Dailyfix too), so you know it's gonna be good.
