How native advertising can boost your sales

Native advertising and content marketing

Native advertising, or content marketing in general, can be incredibly effective at getting people to like your brand and buy your products. It refers to the practice of including advertisements in the content you share, rather than displaying them as static ads at the top or bottom of your page. Native advertising allows you to seamlessly integrate marketing messages into your content without disrupting or distracting from your user experience, so you can promote products and services effectively without losing your audience’s attention or trust. Read on to learn how to use native advertising to boost your sales!

What is native advertising?

Native advertising is a form of content marketing that allows you to weave paid messages into the fabric of your website or app. It’s a less intrusive way of getting paid content in front of people who are interested in it. Native ads are also often more engaging because they feel like they belong. When done right, native ads can boost user experience and increase conversion rates—helping you convert more visitors into customers and make more money from them. 

How to setup native advertising campaigns

There are several ways in which you can implement native advertising. The first is simply by creating sponsored content that fits into their respective niches. For example, a restaurant could sponsor recipes that they think would appeal to their target audience. A bank could create online content about financial topics, etc. This is probably the most common method of implementing native ads.

Native advertising is a perfect fit for companies that have products with strong features and benefits. In fact, according to recent research, content that has at least one feature or the benefit-oriented line gets more than twice the engagement rate of posts that focus purely on storytelling. When you take the time to think about what your target audience needs, it’s easy to tailor the content you’re sharing to build trust and rapport with your readers.

Where can you publish native ads?

There are plenty of different platforms where you can publish native ads. For example, blogs, websites, or magazines that reach your target audience. Consider having a well-known influencer in your industry review or discuss one of your products on his or her website. Or, look into sponsoring a website or an event that is relevant to your company and brand. In addition, consider using content marketing tactics like videos or webinars with embedded ads.

Platforms like Whitepress enable you to publish your content - with a link to your website or webshop - on websites and blogs with visitors that are interested in topics related to your industry.

Boost your sales with native advertising

Native Advertising has been an effective way for brands to reach their target market and expand their followers for a long time. The concept of creating a piece of content that closely relates to your product/service is a time-tested strategy for generating leads, boosting traffic, and building brand recognition. With native advertising, you have more opportunities to connect with your customers through storytelling than ever before. Your first step in using native advertising effectively is understanding what it is and how to create compelling content. Use story-driven tactics that draw consumers into something unique and engaging. With a non-commercial message, sometimes told by an influencer or an ambassador, it will be easier to convert your visitors into customers

Connect with your audience

To implement social media and community building, you’ll first need to motivate visitors to connect with you. Tell an interesting story (the content marketing side of native advertising) about why you do what you do and why your customers should care. Give them a reason to connect with you, tell them what makes you different from competitors, and offer a reward for following or liking or subscribing (that is, give them something in return). You can also collect data from your visitors as part of community building; that way, even if they don’t engage directly through social media, you’ll still have access to information about who they are.

Native advertising is an interesting method of advertising in a non-commercial way, to reach out to your target audience while providing them useful information and leading them to your products or services.
