by Jen Bergen |

BOULDER, Colo. – March 10, 2016 – Erika Trautman, CEO and founder of Rapt Media, a leader in groundbreaking interactive video technology, recently sat down with Jim Nail, Forrester Research principal analyst serving B2C marketers, to discuss the influence of emerging content technologies on personalization, consumption, data, and ROI, and the shifting content marketing landscape.

The interactive discussion is segmented into five topics relating to content technology and the shifting content marketing landscape, including:

  • Content Tech vs. Ad Tech: The complexity of the content ecosystem and the growing tension between content and advertising
  • Content Marketing: Key pain points and challenges marketers face with content creation, distribution and optimization
  • Online Video: Why it matters and how technology is changing video consumption
    Interactive Advantage: Moving beyond traditional, linear content formats to create personalized, engaging content
  • Rapt Media: Giving content marketers the ability to create personalized, customer-centric content experiences

“We were thrilled to have the opportunity to discuss the shifting nature of content marketing with Jim. Exploration and discovery are becoming increasingly important to content consumption today, especially as push advertising continues to suffer from a lack of credibility and trust with consumers,” said Erika Trautman, CEO and founder of Rapt Media. “This mistrust and the growing use of ad-blocking technology are why Rapt Media gives content marketers the ability to create explicitly personalized experiences that invite consumers to find the content they deem most important.”
