What is user-generated content and can it help your business?

This article was originally published on Oct. 1, 2018, and updated on April 21, 2021.

It might be hard to believe, but people used to have a limited amount of sources and channels from which to get their information and entertainment.

That paradigm has shifted dramatically over the last decade, and more people than ever are creating, sharing and engaging with content across the endless spectrum of mediums.

ESPN used to be the go-to source for anything sports  — however, people are now following their … Read the rest
