Three-Minute Trend: Why Brands Should Turn Broadcaster
From podcasts to livestreaming to a new generation of drop-in audio apps and even radio concepts, the last year or so of lockdowns has brought the value of new-generation broadcasting to the fore, incubating an ultra-fertile space for new brand communications.
As Jonathan Wilson, professor of brand strategy and culture at Regent's University London, says: "Our appetite for snackable, bingeable, mobile-ready content has been growing for some time, but the pandemic has brought us a crossing-the-Rubicon moment concerning the application of broadcasting anywhere, everywhere, by anyone. Even luxury brands have softened and are rubbing shoulders."
In this Three-Minute Trend, Katie Baron, director of Brand Engagement at Stylus, explores versions of brand-backed broadcasting to date, reviewing the key platforms with mileage and the fan/consumer behaviours these are satisfying.
In this time of accelerated change and global volatility, Stylus' Three-Minute Trend videos offer short, sharp insights into the business challenges and commercial opportunities that matter right now, whatever industry you're in.
