Ever wondered how and why your Facebook feed was filled with interesting content you cared for? Do you feel discouraged because your ads seem useless? We might have something for you...

THE ADVERTISEMENT OF TODAY

As advertiser Howard Gossage said in the past, “Nobody reads ads. People read what interests them. Sometimes it’s an ad”. Today, people search for content more than form. They want to be captivated by a subject. That’s why companies need to work twice as hard to attract and build a target audience. Good content is what creates a relationship between a brand and its customers. It’s important to present ads in a good context, in order to attract and not to bother the potential customer.

Considering the fact people are more and more suspicious about what they see online, they tend to believe user-generated content the most. Perfect! That is actually what native advertising is all about. Well, partly…

SO, WHAT IS NATIVE AD?

The term ‘native adverting’ appeared at the end of 2012 in the United States. Publicists and advertisers exposed the fact usual banners and other advertising formats were becoming obsolete. That’s when the idea of native advertising emerged.


Paid media where the ad experience follows the natural form and function of the user experience in which it is placed. When the ad is not intrusive, a user is more likely to become a customer.

This way, you gain valuable visibility by really adapting to your audience. Just like a chameleon!
In-stream videos, sponsored tweets or Instagram posts are all native advertising content, presented almost seamlessly when you consume your content.

Efficiency and subtlety are the keys to your success.​
