Customer engagement increases with content that reads like editorial

Native advertising is sponsored content that is designed to look and feel like the content around it in a publication. It’s a popular advertising choice available in national media like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Locally, native advertising is available from Access Publishing.

Sponsored content is designed to blend in with editorial content. Examples range from story packages to sponsor-written posts. Publications use a variety of media, including text, videos and photos, and extend the reach of the content via social media and email promotions.

Native advertising is powerful marketing

  •   • People view native ads 53-percent more frequently than traditional ads.

  •   • Native advertising can increase brand lift by as much as 82-percent.

  •   • Purchase intent is 53-percent higher when consumers click on native ads.

  •   • Native ads containing rich media can boost conversion by as much as 60-percent.

One great way to get in touch with a local audience via native advertising is by purchasing a promoted article in local media outlets. Sometimes an advertiser has more to say than will fit in a display ad, making a promoted article a better way to communicate to your audience.
