Digg Blending Advertising and Content

  • Digg CEO: Content as Advertising
  • "Instead of the standard billboard or whatever you read on the Internet, we're going to create ads - and we do create ads - that are literally content, so if you click on it you read an interesting story or article, and you put branding next to it. And we get literally get 100 times the click-through rate of what a typical ad would get, so that's good for advertisers."
  • Marketing Takeaway : Content performs better than sales promotion, and content can help build brands.
