Perhaps the only thing that changes more rapidly than technology in today's amped-up digital environment is the terminology used to describe that technology and its impact on consumers--and marketers. One recent example is the advent of the term "omnichannel" marketing, which many struggle to differentiate from another relatively recent term--"multichannel" marketing. Still, those who are most enmeshed in the field say there is a key distinction between the two, and it's one that will have an impact on marketers as they continue to seek ways of having a meaningful impact on the consumers they hope to engage. And, importantly, it's less about technology than it may seem.

Jimmy Fallon, host of The Tonight Show, did something recently that I never thought I would see again in my lifetime. This moment gave me such joy that it was almost embarrassing. What made this magical eight minutes of late night TV so amazing was that Jimmy Fallon made a dream come true for all of us kids who were glued to every episode of Saved By the Bell in the late 80's and early 90's. Fallon, who is notorious for his YouTube gems, amazed and fascinated me. I watched the video three or four times.

But while you may have chuckled at spots like Esurance's featuring Lindsey Lohan poking fun at her DUI-checkered reputation or Budweiser's lost puppy tug-on-the-heartstrings pitch, ask yourself: How motivated were you to act on those ads and purchase these products/services, and, if you were that company, could your ad dollars have been better spent in other channels, including digital?

Gone are the days of the Mad Men of Madison Avenue. Sad as it is, not only is the midday drinking and smoking gone for good (mostly anyway), but the ads of old are gone as well.

Smart advertisers are now focusing on a different form of advertising. And it looks a lot like its marketing brother from another mother, content marketing.
