Welcome to a new editorial series from Tempesta Media called “This Week in Content Marketing.” Of course, we’re focusing on SEO and blogging. But there are many topics with a larger view of the digital marketing landscape. We’d like to highlight interesting content development, design, and distribution-related things.
As you’ll see, interactive web video marketing is a topic we’re paying attention to as the 2D landscape evolves. We are also fascinated by immersive storytelling that breaks the boundaries of physical reality with digital layers of new worlds and spaces to tell stories which is why we’re excited about extended reality platforms like Apple Vision Pro.

The five steps to build a brand entity outlined in this article include:

- Corroborating the bio with stakeholders
- Continuously optimizing and expanding the brand entity presence
