The 2013 Internet Summit in Raleigh

The Internet Summit is in Raleigh this week and I'll be a panelist on the Content Marketing and Native Advertising: Beyond the Hype panel for Cuberis. I've written a few pieces for Cuberis to explain my thoughts on the topics. You can read the articles on the Cuberis blog

Additionally, the Internet Summit folks interviewed me for the Internet Summit Community to get some of my thoughts prior to the panel. Read Content Marketing and Native Advertising: what matters is what works in the Internet Summit Community. Thanks, Allan, for a great discussion. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the topic. If you're going to the Internet Summit, find me or another member of the Cuberis team or hit me up for a coffee or a drink in Raleigh this week.

The panel was a blast. I've written up my insights and worked with the Cuberis team to collect a few photos

2016 Update

Advertisers and Journalists are still grappling with how to use native advertising. Brian Honigman has a piece on Content Marketing versus Native Advertising that explores some of the things discussed in this presentation. Embedded in his article is a great Last Week Tonight episode exploring Native Advertising. I still argue that if the Native Advertising is accurate, authentic and provides value, it can work. And I also still argue that people should always be skeptical of "recommendations," unless they are from a trusted source. People are always trying to sell something. That's a part of life.
