“Your job is to verify the information that looks useful. As with all the other information you gather, you can verify lots of different ways, and no single technique works for everything.”

Vizify hit the ground running as a new social media platform that excels in social sharing. A smart, multi-channel approach is incorporated in their own marketing....

 

Before this post, I had never heard of #Vizify. A tweet from a good friend mentioning me in her video caught my attention. Since there was a link, I was intrigued. The video is brief–less than a minute–and it’s informative and entertaining at the same time. The fact I have a role doesn’t hurt either. After viewing her video, I am invited to create my own, or I should say, I am invited to let them create one for me. The user interface is clean, simple and entertaining, all at the same time. And the real power, you can edit if you don’t like the finished product they create....

It's easy for marketers to forget traditional channels when there are so many new ones.

We spend a great deal of time talking about social media marketing.  But its important to remember that other forms of marketing are also valuable.

I think advertisers are smart to want to have their ad copy look, read, and sound more like journalism. It’s a form of flattery for what we do, and although trust has waned in our profession recently—the public sees that our journalism is not as good as it used to be–it means that at least that the Mad Men of Madison Avenue think we’re more trustworthy than they are.

 

There’s an informative website, brandjournalists.com, that explains what these new kinds of ad producers do and why. It’s instructive.At base what they say they are doing is story telling. And, as they say, a good story is the essence of human communication. We journalists know that, or at least we should. If you can tell a good story about a company or organization, that’s likely to sell more product than the best old-hat sales pitch, the brand journalists reason.

 

They’re right. I agree with the ad folks that most companies have a good story to tell. I used to cover business and I never found a business I couldn’t find something interesting and newsworthy to write about.But let me show you how journalism is different than “brand journalism” or other kinds of sponsored content. This story you might even know....

This is a really good read and a reality check about "brand journalism" and the challenge of telling interesting stories and avoiding marketing-speak.
