Salesforce and Fortune Brand Studio secured the award for both B2B and B2C Best Branded Content Program categories with their groundbreaking series “The Ecopreneurs.” The 11-part documentary-style series has stunning cinematography and profiles global entrepreneurs driving climate action. The campaign surpassed benchmarks, becoming Salesforce+’s flagship show, leading in viewership and engagement metrics. Notably, it generated significant brand uplift, with double-digit increases in awareness, familiarity, affinity, purchase intent and recommendation intent. “The Ecopreneurs” also drove tangible impacts for featured organizations, including increased awareness, followers, volunteers and monetary investments. This multifaceted success underscores the power of storytelling to drive meaningful change and engagement.

Another company to secure two wins this year is TIME for Content Studio of the Year and Media Brand of the Year, signifying a year of remarkable achievement and innovation. Red Border by TIME’s unparalleled success in driving digital revenue, fostering partnerships and crafting compelling branded content epitomizes excellence. Through initiatives like TIME100 partnerships, the content studio demonstrated a multifaceted approach to engaging audiences and driving brand success, such as driving over 72% of TIME’s digital revenue with a 15% year-over-year increase.

Concurrently, TIME’s broader brand strategy, marked by revenue growth, audience expansion and editorial innovation, solidifies its status as a premier media entity. Removing the digital paywall and expanding global events underscored TIME’s commitment to reaching diverse audiences, with notable achievements including successful podcasts and record-breaking sales of its issue featuring Taylor Swift. These wins underscore TIME’s enduring legacy and unwavering commitment to relevance and impact in an ever-evolving media landscape, setting a high standard for the industry.
