Content and context have always been important considerations in marketing, but with today’s digitally savvy consumers, content and context are essential. Many winning marketers find that offering consumers valuable, informative and/or entertaining content tailor-made to a given context works more powerfully than traditional approaches to ad messaging and placement.

The strength of context-driven content is what’s driving a surge in native advertising opportunities. In social media, we have LinkedIn’s Sponsored Updates and Twitter’s promoted Tweets, trends and people—just to name a few. There are also multiple news brand sites’ own native ad offerings to consider, in addition to many more opportunities in the space.

How can marketers craft an effective strategy to leverage the power of native advertising?

Find out at this IAB seminar exploring how native advertising has resulted in big wins for some of the world’s leading brands and publishers.
