Vogue’s Digital Director Takes Us Inside the Brand’s Cross-Platform Strategy

Vogue may still be best known for its print edition, whose September fashion issue, though thinner each year, remains a relative bible against its competitors. But some may be surprised to learn that 13.3 million U.S. adults visited Vogue.com in February, according to comScore data, an increase of 54 percent over February 2018, and Vogue's second-best monthly total ever after last May, the month of the Met Gala. The brand scored wins not just with content drawn from the magazine's Hailey Baldwin/Justin Bieber cover story, which received a major push online in the first week of the month, but also by further capitalizing on annual tentpole events highly popular with its audience base. Traffic to articles, videos and slideshows around the Grammy Awards, Feb. 10, was up 39-percent year-over-year, Vogue says, while traffic around the Oscars later in the month jumped 31 percent. The recent digital growth at the 126-year-old title isn't the result of chasing scale, says digital director Anna-Lisa Yabsley, but more a symptom of a shift in strategy in recent years emphasizing deeper engagement with loyal audiences, wherever and whenever they want to consume Vogue content.

Editors and social media teams are working with audience... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
