Why Native?

“Today, a whopping 70 million U.S. internet users employ ad blockers. This is equivalent to a little more than 25% of internet users in the U.S. This is why native ad strategists and digital marketers, in general, are trying to come up with new ideas on how to make their commercial messages more attractive." -Native Advertising Institute

“Native ads get 20-60% higher engagement rates than display banner ads.” -Marketing Land

“Native ads create an 18% increase in purchase intent.” -Outbrain
