PNR 111: FTC In No-Win Situation with Native Advertising

Content Marketing with Pulizzi and Rose


In this New Year's edition of #ThisOldMarketing, Joe and Robert discuss the most recent FTC statement on native advertising and what it means to brands and publishers.  Forbes announces a "light ad" site for ad blockers and ANA chooses "content marketing" as the phrase of the year.  The boys cap it off with another Medium story, and why CEO Ev Williams is a master seducer.  Rants and raves include YouTube vs. Facebook and The Business Romantic.  This week's TOM example: Komputronik buys Benchmark.
