Paid, Owned and Earned Media: The Convergence

What marketers classify as paid, owned, and earned media are blurring together faster than ever. A recent report by Altimeter Group called this new phenomenon “converged” media. How do businesses best manage to stay ahead? How do you organize your teams for efficiency? Michael Lazerow, CEO and co-founder of Buddy Media will lead discussion of this topic and cover the following questions:

  1. What are some examples of the convergence of paid, owned and earned media? Can you walk through some examples?
  2. How does the converging of media change the organization of your team and collaboration with internal and external partners and stakeholders?
  3. What skills do “earned” and “paid” media specialists need to learn today?
  4. How do you measure results and report “converged” media success to the CMO or CEO?
  5. How can this convergence help business be more efficient with their marketing investments?
