CONTENT PARTNERSHIP



Why Alternative Insight? Why Focus on Video & Audio Content

The internet is awash with content. There is too much to read and audience engagement is diminishing. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to be seen and heard over all that digital noise.

To remain relevant, build and maintain brand affinity, companies must adapt their approach to producing content and engaging an audience whose approach to consuming information has evolved.

In Africa, a market perceived as rapidly growing, however, risky, illiquid and relatively non-transparent. Businesses must create a new content strategy and refocused their content approach if they are to pioneer their brand and market narrative.

They have no choice but to use well created video and audio content, supported by social media and other relevant touchpoints to activate and engage their audience.
