There is a content surplus and an attention deficit in the minds of consumers today.

They are highly influential and aiding others down the purchase funnel using organic conversations about the products they care about and the ones they don't.

In order to reach these consumers, brands must create recent, relevant and value add content in order to break through the clutter and successfully change their behavior. 

Content is still king - and if you're a brand marketer, you need to start thinking like a media company, too. 

Don't miss this presentation in which Michael Brito - social business pioneer and author of Your Brand, The Next Media Company - will brings together the strategic insights, operational frameworks, and practical approaches for transforming your brand into a highly successful media company.
