Editorial strategy “Co-Create” revolves around entertainment, marketing and technology. The micro-site, Content + Pervasive Creativity, will focus on content marketing. It will publish videos and posts created by Ogilvy and certain of its customers.
In addition to providing a tactic of rapid acquisition through the site, “the team at Fast Company will operate as a kind of editorial consultant,” writes Matthew Flam. Christine Osekoski, publisher of Fast Company, “the sponsored content has become part of increasingly important for the Fast Company business model.”
By facilitating the acquisition of traffic through numerous content marketing efforts, media brands have an advantage that goes well beyond their skills to create engaging content.

There are many ways for the media to jump on the content marketing bandwagon in order to develop new sources of income. One of them is to take advantage of “brand journalism.” However, how do you do so without the risk of compromising the integrity of the media brand? Forbes magazine has an approach that deserves attention.

Eight out of ten of these marketers will increase their content marketing budget in 2013. This budget represents on average 33% of their marketing efforts. 55% of brands produce content in-house and a little over 40% are working with an external agency or freelancers.
There is no question whether or not your site should be mobile friendly. It should be. But should you go responsive design (RWD) or adaptive design (also called “dynamic serving”)? After experimenting with the two options, our team has decided to implement dynamic serving / adaptive design in conjunction with fluid layout.
What are the main differences between the RWD and adaptive design? Garrett Goodman, in the Huffington Post, gives a good definition of the two: “Responsive design is client-side, meaning the whole page is delivered to the device browser (the client), and the browser then changes how the page appears in relation to the dimensions of the browser window. Adaptive design is server-side, meaning before the page is even delivered, the server (where the site is hosted) detects the attributes of the device, and loads a version of the site that is optimized for its dimensions and native features.”
So here are five reasons why we have chosen to go adaptive first in conjunction with fluid layout: Continue reading →
