  3. 3. SPONSORED CONTENT: A WIDER PARTNERSHIP
  4. 4. SPONSORED CONTENT: PAID AMPLIFICATION

  14. 14. SPONSORED CONTENT: ETHICAL FRAMEWORK
  15. 15. CRITICAL ISSUE ONE: DISCLOSURE • Edelman will disclose that editorial- style “sponsored content” on major news sites is in fact sponsored • The firm will advocate that its partners include the opportunity for the audience to substantively participate in the conversation
  16. 16. CRITICAL ISSUE TWO: QUALITY • Sponsored content programs will be primarily utilized to amplify that which is owned and/or earned media - not replace it • In a fluid medium, sponsored content should aim to be constantly updated and sometimes expanded to reflect new information
  17. 17. CRITICAL ISSUE THREE: PROCESS• Edelman will not engage in quid pro quo discussions that intertwine paid and earned. Further, it maintains a strict policy that it does not engage in pay-for-play • The firm will separate its day-to-day earned media work with journalists from the paid work in structuring news media partnerships
