Nudge Update, February 2018

First of all, Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️
To celebrate we wanted to share a couple of Valentine’s Day articles with you:

With Nudge being the first and only company to provide deep and timely content marketing analytics across all media partners, we’ve vowed to do a lot more content backed by Nudge data. Another example of that is the Super Bowl piece we published earlier this month, covering the best content formats + ad delivery times during gameday.
Ari Levine, CRO of Nudge, shared his story to date, his excitement of joining Nudge and why he's been wearing Adidas sneakers, near exclusively, since 1989.
Two weeks back the New York Times blew holes in the business of influencers and our CEO Ben Young, penned a response. Our favorite line in the original article is the shade thrown at the Marketing Consultant/Professor who bought hundreds of thousands of followers and shared that the “true secret to celebrity influence” is ”authenticity is the key”.
 ^speaking of authenticity, Nudge blocked 5.9 million bots last week.
Keep up with the latest trends in the industry with our continuously updated article ‘The State of Content’. Also useful for supporting data in presentation decks.
Check out the best native ads from 2018 [updated weekly]. You can submit work too. *pro tip: bookmark this page to come back throughout the year to learn from the very best in the industry.
Finally, just a reminder to check out our video solutions!
