Customer Publishing: Customer Publishing Leagues


This year's table reveals a solid performance from the industry, as its agencies transform themselves into branded content experts.

Customer publishing agencies are weathering the recession well, so far The value of the sector is likely to reach pounds 1.1bn by 2012 - 15% up on 2008, according to Mintel.

The upward curve is due to the fact that more brands want to engage their customers in relevant conversations. Yet publishers cannot rest on their laurels. The downturn upped pressure on costs, as brands sought to stretch content across more platforms. As marketers seek even closer relationships with consumers, customer publishers are ideally placed to provide content wherever, whenever and however consumers interact with brands.
