Quotes from Members:
Initially, I was drawn to the BCMA because I wanted to join a more focused group that was helping move the industry forward rather than simply representing the status quo of current thinking and practice. At the same time, unlike most other associations they’re a global group of fellow practitioners run by practitioners. This difference makes the BCMA more lean and agile, so that new ideas about how to educate the market can be agreed and acted upon more swiftly. For example, the BCMA not only agreed to support the Best of Branded Content Marketing ebook I proposed, but also helped solicit contributions from industry thought leaders and award winning branded content creators from around the globe. This would have been impossible without their help and championship. Their collaborative ethos also extends to working with other marketing associations and international conference organisers, which helps spread the word as well as finding their members opportunities for thought leadership and to show case their work. For me they are less of a marketing association, or even think tank, but more of an industry ‘do tank’.
Justin Kirby, VP, Strategic Content Marketing, Tenthwave
Branded Content has been a long time coming but having a space where the early insights and learnings are shared with the other content innovators is vital for us and our clients.
Martin Delamere, Head of Strategy, Bray Leino
Joining the BCMA has given me greater insight into what other organisations are doing in this space. It has also made it easier for me to stay abreast of the latest technologies available for dissemination and measurement of Branded Content. There is no other central database for this kind of information and in an industry moving as quickly as ours, any assistance in maintaining the pace is greatly beneficial. Becoming a member has also legitimised my experience and expertise in Branded Content and my commitment to this field, which is useful professionally.

The BCMA has played a vital role to ensure that the emergent media of brand content had a coordinated voice from the outset. Andrew and Alison’s personal and professional commitment to the task has been extraordinary; the sector is now recognised for its importance in the modern media mix.
