Branded content distributed through premium publishers sees a
50%**
higher brand lift

**Marketers who distribute their branded content through a publisher’s network see 50% higher brand lift than those who publish on their own.  The science behind this comes down to pattern recognition. Humans are really good at recognizing patterns, and when a brand is associated with a trusted source like a publisher, our brains take that as a signal that the company shares the same values and reputation.
