While many of us have been enjoying a bit of holiday rest and relaxation, others have been nose-t0-the-grindstone with the work of the news media industry. In case you missed these while putting on sunscreen by the pool, here are the most-read stories produced by INMA contributors in July:

2. How branded content will transform print media: Somebody is going to profit from content marketing, according to researchers at Boston Consulting Group. Shouldn’t it be your news media company?
