It got tired of the ridicule,… Read More

During our time in the bistro we sent over each of our Catering Food Warriors to the Bistro to learn how to…

OpenTable battles just-reservations rep

OpenTable is currently top dog when it comes to restaurant reservations, but a growing number of companies are trying to do bits of what it does -- reserve tables, see pictures of restaurants and pay for dinner via an app. To stave off competition, the company has launched a new logo and rebrand that better communicates its pitch: we're here for your entire dining experience. And for restaurants, the company will now offer data about guests.

As BuzzFeed builds its operation in the U.K., it's also attracting its share of brand and agency supporters, which are embracing its approach to shareable branded content. But BuzzFeed is also facing headwinds with brands when it comes to its goofy-yet-earnest editorial sensibility. “Brands here are bit more uncertain about slightly risqué content," said Charlotte Tice, head of publishing at Mindshare UK. BuzzFeed, however, is pushing back by building out its serious-news division and teaching brands in the U.K. why they shouldn't be afraid to speak in BuzzFeed's voice.

But despite the limited rollout, SoundCloud is attracting the attention of major brand advertisers, including Microsoft and Jaguar. With mounting losses, the pressure is on to monetize. "2015 has to be their breakout year for advertising," said John Tuchtenhagen, svp of media at Digitas.
