Welcome believes that not many people fully grasp how specialized and complex operating a new media model can be, and that using Mediaco is the best solution for those who need to enter a media mindset.
“While it’s clear content has become the hot topic across the marketing and media industry, what’s less understood is how specialized and complex operating a new media model can be, especially one that requires both scale and a sustained approach,” said Wellcome. “What Mediaco offers is an end-to-end solution – one not based on theory, but one tested, refined and validated through the many client programs we’ve developed and executed.”
Companies that opt for Mediaco will benefit from the experience of over 100 Weber Shandwick specialists including: brand planners, editors, user experience designers, writers, SEO experts, media planners, producers and more. The unit is supported through a new technology collaborative that includes Adaptly, Contently, Outbrain and Tongal, which partnered with with Weber Shandwick to enhance Mediaco with specialized operating capability as well as access to technology platforms that help production and distribution of content.
