Why we like it:

Not all paid content needs to be about subtly shifting brand perception. Proving this point is a great piece by Who What Wear for Saks Fifth Avenue. It includes user interaction so that readers can pick a Fall Trend their most excited about, style tips and a shop now functionality to pick up the latest trend. To round it off they’ve included prominent Pin It buttons on each image to remind readers to share.


Quote of the Week

It is no longer just the show that can be “brought to you by” a sponsor, but a broader world of related content, goods and services.”
