  13. 13. What is Native Advertising? The term “native advertising” has gotten a lot of play around the digital media industry recently, as publishers, platforms and other advertisers look for ways to differentiate their offerings and combat the continued commoditization of banner ads. – Thursday, April 3, 14
  14. 14. – Barry Lowenthal, President, Media Kitchen When I use the term, I’m referring to ad units or creative assets that are native and unique to a particular environment or platform. I think the best example is the paid tweet. Only Twitter can offer paid tweets, only Facebook can offer sponsored stories, and only Pandora can offer the playlist (actually, that’s not entirely true because Spotify can, too). But all of those examples are ad units or messaging devices that are unique to those platforms. “ ” Thursday, April 3, 14
  15. 15. “Despite all the hype, native advertising is one method for marketers to use content to engage with readers in a way that is more effective than standard advertising.” – Paul Rossi, Managing Director, The Economist “Native monetization is deriving revenue from a platform in a way that is unique and organic to the experience.” – Jon Steinberg, President, BuzzFeed Thursday, April 3, 14
  16. 16. Thursday, April 3, 14
  17. 17. Native advertising is the natural frame in which content is delivered AND the understanding of what content is most valuable to the audience. The content should benefit the user, not interrupt or disrupt. Thursday, April 3, 14
