Our philosophy on advertising… Consumers online expect dialogue , so pairing your brand with relevant and passion-driven topics is one of the best ways to ensure that you are engaged with key audiences … Given that brands are all about voice , meaning , values , and point of view , having the skills of a conversational publisher is critical to success . It’ s not enough to buy engagement ads, have a Facebook page, or man a twitter handle.
