This textbook takes a direct and practical approach to the subject, showing journalists and journalism students how they can apply their skills to working for a brand, and showing those who work for non-media organisations how their organisation can acquire the skills necessary to become a multimedia publisher.
Areas covered include:
• Establishing the audience your brand wants to engage with
• Identifying your organisation’s business goals
• Developing a brand journalism strategy to help deliver those business goals
• Measuring the results of your brand journalism strategy
The book also features a wealth of case studies on the subject and offers an invaluable companion website – www.brand-journalism.co.uk.
