As former leaders in the traditional media space, we've sold standard solutions in tandem with early and modern iterations of online media. We've built collaborative and revenue-driving partnerships at the local, regional and national levels. We’ve watched the landscape change, evolve, and then, change again. The formula of audience + strategic content + frequency still matters; but how brands must approach this equation and then invest has been completely undone.
