Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably browsed a popular news site and seen a sponsored post. You might not have known it was sponsored at the time, but we promise it was there. Whether it’s a BuzzFeed “listicle” promoting an upcoming movie or a Forbes post on a new piece of software, sponsored content is everywhere. While it may have been clunky in its early days, sponsored content is becoming increasingly tailored to the platform it’s being published on. Brands are now creating great content that users want to read, instead of boring content that users inevitably scroll past. Great sponsored content is engaging to the reader, but gets your name out there in the end. However, it takes work to create this type of content and integrate it into an effective campaign. You have to know what news outlet to work with, what kind of content to create, and how much money to put behind your campaign. In today’s content marketing landscape, sponsored content is a key tool for any marketer looking to create exposure for their brand.
