Every company must be a tech company first and a media company second. It’s a saying that has been doing the rounds of the Silicon Valley almost since the turn of the century.
It is something that seasoned business leaders have known for ages: an unwritten rule that as soon as a business is big enough, it will want to acquire a media or publishing business worth it's pocket.
And that’s because, technology and media are two things that help you build massive leverage. Naval Ravikant discusses this passionately when talking about how individuals can and will build wealth in the 21st Century.
Therefore, you can see that the saying is still as good as gold. Just that it’s applied differently in the present context.
You see, digital marketing and content marketing burst upon the scene post-2010. Along with it, the various macro and micro-blogging and vlogging platforms have been coming in and going out like fireflies.
Today, 77% of companies globally use social media to connect with their users. For 41% of these, social media is a significant revenue driver. It makes sense too, since about 4.9 billion people in the world (remember, total human population numbers 8.1 billion, as of September, 2023) now use social media (again, 2023 stats). What’s truly staggering is that the average number of platforms a single user is on rounds off to 6 or 7.
That requires businesses to think and act like media companies on steroids.
It is also practically like any major publisher acing their media operations out there. It’s a challenge as we know it even for media publishing companies, let alone run-of-the-mill businesses trying to do their best at their day job.
New reality is that owning your media, building your social media presence, and engaging with your customers while accessing the latest data insights has become a part of the day job at most companies, from construction and mining to e-commerce and more.
This is why we at Quintype are most impressed by what the top publishers are doing. We look at them as a beacon of hope and insights for those who want to up their content and media publishing game.
Whether you operate a multi-user gaming blog hitting millions of pageviews every month or a niche blog looking to scale traffic and engagement. Or, a simple vlog thriving on user-generated content filtered through your multi-million dollar product or brand page… the list is endless, really. And it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from.
And by rest, I mean the following:
Quintype is a Newsroom CMS built on proprietary code, unlike some of the most popular CMSes in the world, such as WordPress, Drupal, and others that are open-source.
