Why you should consider Native Advertising?

Native ads are advertising formats that are consistent with the form, style and voice of the platform they appear on.

Native ads are consumed the same way people view editorial content which could attribute to consumers looking at native ads 53% more frequently than display ads and why they tend to register a higher lift in purchase intent (18%) and brand affinity (9%) than banner ads.

The secret to achieving great native advertising is understanding who your audience is, being relevant to them and providing engaging content. And it’s also about being omnichannel because no audience exists in one place alone.
