You can’t escape it. Pokemon Go is everywhere; you can even find your next date using Pokemon! Admittedly, some may say this Pokemon craze has gone a little far, and we don’t completely disagree with that but we certainly are having fun talking with our clients about ways to capitalize on this fun trend; especially in light of all the NOT fun things happening in the world. Here are six of our favorite ways advertisers have used Pokemon Go to drive business:
