So the very nature of media–revenue models, advertising, editorial, print/digital, audience development, distribution. It really all keeps changing, and rapidly. So it’s kinda interesting to watch the big dogs make changes and see how it takes. Usually there’s a lesson or two in there to be learned for niche publishers.
In the news: Big digital news publisher, The Huffington Post, recently tied the knot with a top creative agency. Together they can manage huge teams of brand content writers to drive cultural conversations……about the news they just published.
It will be interesting to see how this new partnership affects the traditional relationship between publishing, advertising and content. Does this new publishing model blur the lines even more or is this just a case of a big agency promoting a big publisher?
And why would niche publishers care about any of this, you ask?
Because publishers of all sizes can dedicate staff to driving social conversations about their content.
