SmartBrief Launches New Featured Content Ad Unit

Enhanced targeting capabilities let advertisers tailor their content to the right audience

Washington, D.C., July 19, 2013 – Digital publisher SmartBrief, Inc. today rolled out a new ad unit geared toward content marketers. The new Featured Content unit grants marketers unparalleled access to industry decision makers with the content or marketing assets they produce.

Featured Content is a highly visible section of a SmartBrief newsletter ideal for organizations seeking to publish their content in front of business decision makers. It leverages content marketing assets in the form of blog posts, custom reports, eBooks, etc. and allows advertisers to pull the levers to target content to either a particular publication, industry or subscriber demographic resulting in traffic, exposure and brand awareness.

Featured Content works for experienced content marketers as well as those advertisers just entering the content marketing field. It’s an effective way to syndicate content and differs from web-based content recommendation services because it allows for more precise targeting.

Benefits include:

  • Exclusivity – each SmartBrief e-mail features only one Featured Content section
  • Share of Voice -  unlike SmartBrief display advertisements, Featured content allows you to own an entire section of the brief
  • Measurement – Get detailed reports on subscriber engagement with your content
  • Social Reach – subscribers can share your content to Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+
