The goal of native advertising (at least for definition purposes) is: to not disrupt the user experience to offer information that is somewhat helpful and similar to the other information on the site… so that the content is engaged with at a higher rate than, say, a banner ad

Slide 5

State of Native Advertising 62% of publishers and media companies offer some kind of native advertising program. 66% of brands create their own content for native advertising programs (in most other cases, the publishers assist in creating the content for the brand). The most popular forms of native advertising are sponsored blog posts (65%), sponsored articles (63%) and Facebook sponsored updates (56%). Hexagram's State of Native Advertising report

Slide 6

Why? Media brands and social platforms are aggressively offering native advertising products. Brands now spend approximately 25 to 30 percent of their budget on content marketing initiatives. There is a renewed passion in the advertising community around native. This "new advertising" (even though it's not new at all) has given hope to media buyers around the world that something can perform better than a banner ad.
