Converged Media

earned media

Earned media encompasses non-paid media coverage and “word-of-mouth” buzz about your brand, product or services on various social media platforms. Simply stated, earned media is when an outside party communicates about your brand, product or services to their audiences.

The writer, blogger, editor (and publisher) has decided your organization is worth a story. Without hiring a writer or designer, or paying for a spot, your efforts are recognized and published by a third party source, and free from any compensation requirements. As a consumer, it is easy to imagine the credibility this type of coverage creates.

shared media

Shared media encompasses the social networks and technologies controlled by consumers. Your brand’s advocates and influencers live in the shared media world. They represent a significant opportunity to amplify your brand messages and stories.

paid media

Paid media is the term used to describe when a client pays to reach specific audiences via tactics such as ads, sponsorships and paid SEO.

owned media

Owned media consists of any content self-published on the brand or company’s social media pages and websites, examples can include customer testimonials, case studies, white papers, blog posts and videos.

When executed in conjunction with paid and owned advertising and marketing efforts, earned media will have an enormous impact. The end result is a successful combination of converged media, where paid, owned and earned media all work in harmony with a much greater chance of success.
