The Independent recently announced that it will be closing its print newspaper titles and putting all efforts into digital.
It spun the move as a positive, proudly declaring that it is the first newspaper to go digital-only, but anyone who has followed Mark Ritson’s posts about this publication will know the move was likely an unavoidable decision.
I applaud The Independent’s bravery in publicly admitting defeat in the print market, but if it thinks it’s going to succeed with its site in its current state it’s dreaming. Drastic changes are needed.
No matter how good you are at the words, the sentences and the grammar, no matter how often you run your florid prose through the Hemingway app, there are some elements of an article page that can scupper everything.
Here are the most important.
Our new Careers and Salary Survey 2016 looks at the earnings of digital specialists versus general marketers.
4,300 people responded to the survey from across marketing, advertising, digital and design, including client-side and agency-side individuals and consultants.
Here are some of the bits that stood out to me, why some content specialists could be worried and women are still disadvantaged.

Online communication, particularly via social media, is gradually becoming more visual. And with that comes an increasing number of ways to hit people in the eyes with something beautiful.
Not literally, of course. You can get arrested for that sort of thing.
More interesting than a photo and less-annoying than an autoplay video, cinemagraphs are fast making a name for themselves in the world of digital marketing.
‘Every accomplishment starts with the decision to read the weekly Econsultancy digital marketing stats round-up,’ is probably my favourite quote of all time.
It should be yours, too, if you want to be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg.
This week we’ve got some delightful digital marketing stats for you, from content marketing salaries to the rise of video, to poor ad viewability, shunned smartwatches, Six Nations rugby and much more.
Ah, the monthly branded Instagram video round-up. The point at which I literally get paid to be entertained.
And hopefully to entertain you in return, of course, and to provide some inspiration when it comes to your own Instagram video efforts.
This week we’re covering spaceships, cars that look like spaceships, Matrix barmen, zero-gravity ping pong, chicken-powered pianos, chicken-bothered BB-8s, wrestling, and much more.
Sounds like a buzzword, but actually makes a lot of sense. Data visualization is the art of presenting often complex datasets in a visually engaging way.
The hope is that presenting data in this way will make it more engaging and easier to understand, so it’s particularly helpful in terms of speaking to clients or internal stakeholders.
With this in mind, I’ve brought together 14 of my favourite data visualization examples from across the web.
It's annoying that in 2016 a headline like this is still relevant. We’ve all poked fun at silly stock imagery, but it seems once the laughter fades some of us continue regardless.
I’d put it up there with meaningless buzzwords as one of the uglier sides of marketing that refuses to die.
And while it does provide people like me with ammo for our snark guns, it is also incredibly offensive to look at.
According to our friends at Google, the most searched for fashion term in 2015 was “How to walk in heels”.
This may come as a disappointment to fashion brands who have been told search is all about sales.
Customers were NOT hungrily Googling the latest pictures from catwalks in Paris or Milan and working out where they could ‘get the look’.
It has been a while since I dissected the content marketing efforts of a major brand, and what better subject for my first one of the year than the almighty NFL.
The 32 NFL teams generated $11.09bn in revenue between them in 2014. The English Premier League, by comparison, turned over just £3.26bn in the same period.
I thought it would be interesting to delve into the content marketing strategy of this enormous money-making machine to see how the channel supports its success.
Google's unabridged Page Quality rating guidelines were released in November 2015.
Whilst some outlets covered this at the time, I thought I'd do so in purely practical terms.
So, here's a very simple checklist, based on Google's approximation of highest and lowest quality content.
It by no means covers everything in the guidelines, but references those bits that caught my eye.
In our post about 2015 content marketing trends, BBC Worldwide’s Alex Ayling discussed how online influencers rose to prominence last year.
Brands are increasingly realising the value in partnering with influencers to amplify their message or promote their products.
I interviewed three influential YouTube vloggers to find out how they like to be approached by brands and what they look for in a brand partner.
