The Trend Few Are Discussing: Brands As Media Companies
Large Consumer Manufacturers Are Posing Their Sites to Power Display Ads of Third-Party Advertisers

Some of the biggest brands are transforming their assets into these new advertising opportunities, and, in many cases, ad revenue.
The conversation in the marketplace has centered on the opportunities for retailers.
