Digitas will leverage Skyword's content marketing platform, a comprehensive services and technology offering, to help brands publish the breadth and depth of content required to reach and engage their customers. Digitas also plans to offer the Skyword Platform as part of its recently announced BrandLIVE ecosystem, a proprietary agency platform that creates relevance and value for brands every day. Brands understand the power of generating content to connect with current and prospective customers. According to Forrester Research, the market for production and distribution of branded content in 2012 alone is estimated at $40.2 billion and expected to climb to $77 billion by 2016. However, brands have been mired with the challenges inherent in making all the necessary components come together in a holistic, successful way. Brands are confronting a cyclical challenge that includes understanding changing consumer interests and finding the content creators to address those interests. With the Skyword Platform, Digitas can offer brands access to its creative talent and inspiring ideas, but also the ability to create targeted relevant content that is designed to succeed in search and the social web the two primary ways people find information. Launched in September 2012 and made widely available this quarter, Skyword for Agencies is the agency version of the Skyword Platform, designed to streamline and automate the entire content creation and publishing process for agencies managing multiple content programs.
