How companies are developing eZines to monetise content

Digital magazines, or eZines, have been knocking around since the 1990s, but when they moved away from desktops towards tablet devices they found greater success in this new home of mobile convenience. Monetising digital content is currently a contentious subject. There is so much free content available online making it difficult for publishers and content producers to compete and still make a profit.

To be... or not 2b - NATIVE VML
To be... or not 2b

I have a cousin who lives in New Zealand. She's sixteen and smart. We message each other a lot and it generally leaves me laughing at "my age" as I don't understand a word she's saying. It took me a while to crack the code, to figure out that "10Q" actually means "thank you" - and 143 is the "simple" substitute for "I love you", (one letter in I, four in Love and 3 in You).

E-commerce in South Africa - Lessons from China

The year 2014 saw a major shift in consumer behavior and spending habits, and this was reflected in the launch of the biggest IPO yet, that of the Alibaba Group, raising $25bn. Founded by Peng Lei and Jack Ma and led by Jonathan Lu, Alibaba has been a household name in China for years, selling everything from clothing to pet food, but demand for instant gratification, quick delivery and transactional enablement meant that a critical mass would be reached, and today China is the world's largest e-commerce market, and it's only going to get bigger.

Chins up for real-world to digital engagement - So Interactive
Chins up for real-world to digital engagement

The real-world to digital engagement loop is absolutely pivotal to campaign success in the food and beverage industry. Great apps are only as great as the in-store engagement they offer, and vice-versa; the in-store experience should drive back to a digital touch point, offering longevity to the overall brand experience. That is why So Interactive went to work getting chins up, both digitally and in the real world, for Ocean Basket and the beachhouse wine's new Greek madness campaign.

This headline is not a clickbait link

Clickbait headlines, designed to entice people to click through to a particular article, may seem like clever tools to boost page views, but they have the potential to destroy credibility in the long run. Brands that use this tactic should think long and hard about the possible consequences of their actions.
