“Publisher content studios may be the most significant advance in advertising creativity since the Creative Revolution of the 1960’s,” stated Randall Rothenberg, president and CEO, IAB. “Brands can now take advantage of the industry-leading capabilities the best publishers deploy to entertain and educate the world: deep consumer relationships, intimate understanding of what appeals specifically to their users.”
Content studios develop a wide range of branded content for marketers which lands on the publishers’ owned-and-operated sites, and is also distributed across other digital and multimedia properties. That content includes traditional editorial, video programming, short-form video, mobile apps, podcasts, and more.
