What is branded content?

[divider img="tv"]

The advertising world is being turned upside down. As social media moves closer to the center of most marketing strategies, brands of all sizes have started listening to their audiences. One high-value audience in particular (hint: they rhyme will “fillennials”) has emphatically rejected traditional advertising in favor of branded content produced with a purpose beyond pure consumption.

Emergent Order partners with brands to create and distribute compelling multi-platform content that drives consumer action. Our team has been delivering successful branded content campaigns for nearly two decades, building equity and generating engagements by telling stories that align with brand goals.

We measure, monitor, and optimize our branded content campaigns in real time. This allows our team to integrate data-driven insights into the creative design and structure of our marketing. Does that mean we put science above art? Absolutely not. It means we tell smarter brand stories.

Our co-founders cut their teeth in New York City, creating award-winning integrated marketing campaigns for some of the world’s biggest brands, including Burger King, Subaru, Geico, and more. Then they discovered breakfast tacos. The rest is history.
