CUSTOM CONTENT MARKETING (BRAND JOURNALISM)
Custom content marketing blurs the boundaries between journalism and marketing. Effective custom content articles gain natural traction by contributing to the discussions shaping our cultural landscapes, and in doing so, expand the reach and influence of a brand.
Built for social media and the Google generation, custom content articles are shareable, searchable stories that drive organic traffic much more quickly than other paid advertising, making this approach more economical and effective than traditional SEO, SEM, and AdWord strategies.
