The Intersection of Content Marketing and Branded Content: A #CMWorld Twitter Chat with Amanda Milligan

There are people who assume branded content and content marketing are one and the same. But there are differences. Knowing what they are increases your chance of success. We found this to be true when we introduced two new categories to the Content Marketing Awards: B2B and B2C Branded Content Campaigns of the Year. (You can hear from this year’s winners in Chief Content Officer magazine.)

Amanda Milligan knows the advantages of branded content and content marketing. As marketing director at Fractl, she practices what she preaches. Her agency uses both to market clients and their own agency.

We invited Amanda to be a guest on a recent #CMWorld Twitter chat. Read on for a brief recap. Want a deeper look at these two strategies? We’ve curated the top tweets in a Twitter Moment.

Can a company be successful at both content marketing and branded content at the same time?

The answer from our community was a resounding “yes!” But when companies don’t have the right strategy, the results can be harmful.

Should the same internal team handle branded content campaigns and content marketing programs?
