NewsLifeMedia CEO Nicole Sheffield has announced a strategic specialist content sales network for the business.

From today NewsLifeMedia’s group sales and commercial integration teams will merge to form a specialised content focused sales model. This will see NewsLifeMedia unlock the full potential of its category thought leadership and expertise in developing content for clients that connects.

Sheffield said: “NewsLifeMedia is a content connection business that is always innovating, through our brands, editorial and the way we connect with consumers. We wanted to ensure that is reflected through our sales structure.

“It became very clear that a specialist content sales network was paramount for our business to provide best solutions and innovations to connect with audiences both inside and outside our networks. It will provide our advertising partners with specialisation and expertise in the three core lifestyle genres that we lead in – food and family, premium living and style.

“This specialist approach is designed to provide a deeper level of knowledge around each of our content verticals that will be underpinned by deep data, which in turn will provide greater results for our clients, particularly in the native content space. It also allows agencies the ability to work with one contact to unlock our entire portfolio or content specialists with the depth of knowledge to connect with a particular audience.”
