In a world where everyone is a publisher and the information firehose is never turned off, savvy brands today realize two things: 1) they can no longer rely on the media alone to tell their story and 2) advertising to consumers means providing content that has value. This is why brands are investing in their own content and the results are impressive. Gone is the self-serving advertising, thinly disguised as blog posts and in its place, brands are producing informative, entertaining, and compelling content.
But for consumers, enjoying this content means surfing from site to site or YoutTube channel to YouTube channel. As part of getgeeked Media’s mission to bring geeks and brands closer together, we launched Techthusiast.net to change this.
Techthusiast.net is the first tech industry blog dedicated to curating and sharing only the best company-created content from the blogs and YouTube channels of consumer tech brands of all sizes.
For the first time, tech enthusiasts can visit one website to see the most recent content from today’s biggest tech brands, hottest startups, and everything in between. We are currently tracking, curating, and sharing over 300 company blogs and over 250 company YouTube channels.
Everything we share is posted to Techthusiast’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn pages, significantly increasing the number of people brands are reaching with their content. For video enthusiasts, the Techthusiast YouTube channel features all the company videos we post (and many more that don’t make it onto the site) broken into weekly playlists.
Please check it out and let us know what you think. If you don’t see your company’s content or are interested in advertising on Techthusiast.net and related newsletters, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
