Ethics of Sponsored Content

Greetings DMSers.

Yesterday we started a discussion about revenue streams and how they link to the business plan you’re developing this semester. Under the trending category we briefly touched on the notion of Sponsored Content.

Yesterday, Ad Age published a wonderful article written by Michael Sebastian that you should read: News Organizations Face Tricky Trade-Off with ‘Sponsored Content.’

I anticipate Sponsored Content will be a topic of heated discussion on many fronts in the news and PR sectors. Keep an eye out for interesting pieces to share with the group.

This Friday’s blog topic focuses on advertising from the customer’s perspective. I look forward to reading your blogs identifying companies that do advertising well vs. those that do not.
