So whether you need to earn attention, column inches, likes and shares, brand love, more eyeballs, more fame and ultimately more sales – we have the expertise to make it a reality.

As key parts of The Weber Shandwick Collective, we are the world’s leading earned-first network. So let’s discuss why earning your way is the only way.

This week's snippet from The Weber Forecast is the rise of silly subvertising. Recently we have seen brands using parady to cut through - and we think 2024 will be the year that see more ads and products get created with the intention of being spoofed. When Balenciaga unveiled a $900 skirt that resembled a bath towel, IKEA was quick off the mark to parody the item with its £16 alternative. Cleverly tapping into culture. You love to see it.
