For our first event of summer 2017, we're exploring where the similarities lie in how both brands and publishers approach their audience engagement. Whether it takes the form of investigative journalism, a whitepaper, or social media copy, storytelling is at the forefront of what publishers and brands do best. In the rapidly changing media landscape, content creators at brands and publishers alike face a set of digital-specific challenges. Research shows brands haven’t caught up to publishers when it comes to understanding and applying content analytics. Publishers grapple with issues like monetization and the power of platforms. Both groups could learn from each other or offer ideas on those times when strategy doesn’t translate from a brand to a publisher and vice versa. Doors open at 6:00pm and the panel begins at 6:30pm. See you on July 25th!
- THE ECONOMICS OF DIGITAL MEDIA

Digital advertising is still the industry’s bread and butter; spending continues to grow, and the revenue stream remains hugely important to the media business. But with tech companies and social publishers -- primarily Facebook -- eating up larger portions of the digital ad pie, it’s time for media companies to diversify their revenue models. We’re bringing together a panel of media professionals who are experimenting with innovative ways to make money for their companies. Subscription models, paywalls, conferences and events, video, crowdfunding, and micropayments are just the start. What works? What doesn’t? Find out at Parse.ly’s final 2015 Summer Series event!
