When a brand must become a media producer

In the face of advertising saturation, brands and companies wishing to emerge in an increasingly fast digital world now produce their own content.

Brands don’t hesitate about turning into media producers in multiple forms (text, photos and video) and a variety of platforms (sites, blogs, social networks, etc.) to reach their target market. Brands like Red Bull, Lacoste and Adidas have set up Digital Brand Content devices which have proven to be effective.
