The state of commerce content

Commerce content has become an increasingly effective strategy and business model for publishers — a lucrative form of content that consumers trust, a strategic partnership between media and brands resulting in editorial content that creates a unique shopping experience for consumers. Common types include product reviews, roundups, listicles and product launch coverage, but always in an editorial voice and upholding the publisher’s values and standards. Publishers are monetizing commerce content via affiliate links, earning commissions when they drive a conversion.
