  • How to Build a Better Lead Form

    Say you’re walking on the sidewalk, minding your own business on the way back from lunch, when you lock eyes with a street canvasser. The canvasser, dressed in some ill-fitting mesh vest and a visor, gets ready to sell you on a good cause. You want to support the cause, but you also hate the intrusion of the hard sell and don’t want to give away your personal information.

  • Why We Stopped Using the Word ‘Authentic’

    Every night, when I come home from work, I walk by a little billboard in the Hoboken PATH station that makes me gnash my teeth. It’s an ad for a yoga studio. I’ve seen two variations, one for men and one for women. The billboard meant for women contains 15 words of copy: “I am a sister. I am a runner. I am authentic. I do hot yoga.

  • Webinar: State of Content Marketing 2017

    Last January, a potentially wise man predicted that the smartest brands would publish fewer stories in 2016, putting more of an emphasis on larger editorial projects rather than churning out 600-word blog posts. Did that come true? Sort of. Beckon, a marketing data firm, found that 5 percent of all branded content gets 90 percent of attention. (That’s a stat you’re going to hear a lot in 2017.

  • The Best Content Marketing of 2016

    This year’s top content marketing covered topics like dating, science, politics, mascara, Ryan Reynolds, trap music, and anthropomorphic breakfast food.

  • How The New York Times Took Native Advertising Global

    Today, plenty of brands and publishers have content studios. But when The New York Times launched T Brand Studio, its native ad shop, a few years ago, the content marketing space still had that new car smell.

  • How Microsoft Could Turn LinkedIn Into a Legitimate Facebook Rival

    Every social network has a personality. Twitter is for the clever individual trying to turn current events into a punchline. Facebook is for the opinionated person who overshares details about private life. Instagram is for those who want to filter their lives through indulgence. But LinkedIn? That’s where users go to be boring. As the internet’s corporate rolodex, LinkedIn gets the job done.

  • Infographic: The 6 Types of Millennials

  • Most Valuable Publishers

    When most athletes announce their retirements, they wipe away tears during a press conference and answer banal questions from beat reporters. When Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant told the world he was going to hang up his Nikes for good, he wrote a poem. What’s more noteworthy than the quality of Bryant’s free verse is where the poem was published: on The Players’ Tribune, ...

  • The Quest for the Perfect Headline

    The best headline ever written is “Headless Body in Topless Bar.” It appeared on the front page of the New York Post in 1983—simple, symmetrical, and intriguing. Five words that tell a story but still compel you to find out more. Today, you’d probably never see that headline, at least not online. Most publishers now favor either conversational titles or listicles, ideally with ...
