Native Ad Trends

June 20, 2016 § Leave a comment

According to a recent post on Business Insider, native ads, or those that take on or mimic the content surrounding them, will make up to 74% of and up from a 56% share in 2016–this according to data from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PwC, as well as IHS.

Social sites such as Facebook and Twitter were early adopters of native formats and their dominance will likely continue as new technologies will make it easier for all publishers and advertisers to develop native campaigns.

“Native display ad revenue in the US will rise at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17% during this time period to eclipse $36 billion.”

Every Wholesome Family

A big shout out to the folks over at Honey Maid for this week’s new graham cracker commercial. With the tagline, “Honey Maid, everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family.”, they nailed it! Great job and what a fantastic representation of our diverse world. As this trend continues, hopefully we won’t see this as such a stellar example, but instead the norm of how all of us are represented in the media today.

Agencies on the campaign includeDroga5, New York, for creative and digital; Mediavest for media buying; and Weber Shandwick for PR.
