Overdrive’s communication with owner-operators fits the ways they consume information. Today, Overdrive’s audience demands critical information on important topics whenever they need it and wherever they are. This new reality means a fresh approach to our editorial planning. Instead of a detailed editorial calendar created months in advance, we’ll provide a general outline of some key coverage areas and let current industry issues and events drive much of our content for a more engaged audience.

Timely A relevant news- and issue-oriented approach to content serves contractors better than topics picked months in advance.
Multi-Channel Covering topics through a variety of channels enables owner-operators to consume content when and where they want it.
Community-Building Owner-operators regularly engage with our content, editors and each other through our websites and social media. This builds a growing community of people with shared interests and goals.
Owner-Operator-Driven Through views, clicks, comments and shares, owner-operators tell us what’s most important to them. We respond with timely content they’re requesting. Advertisers benefit from having their messages surrounded by content that’s of vital, proven interest.
Audience-Multiplying Today, our ability to touch decision-makers and influencers in the construction industry is virtually limitless. Our content now reaches deeper into the industry and opens up whole new markets for our advertisers.
