IV. ANA MEMBER ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: NATIVE ADVERTISING (2:00-2:30PM)
Native advertising, according to Wikipedia, is an advertising method in which the advertiser attempts to gain attention by providing content in the context of the user's experience. Native ad formats match both the form and function of the user experience in which they are placed. The advertiser's intent is to make the paid advertising feel less intrusive and thus increase the likelihood users will engage with it.
In this session, ANA Digital Marketing Committee members will will be share experiences and perspectives on native advertising including:
- How / if marketers structure internally to manage native advertising
- Outside resources used to develop native advertising, e.g., media agency, creative agency, PR agency, other
- Doing native advertising programmatically
- Amplifying native advertising via social media
- How marketers are disclosing native ads (to avoid trouble with government/consumer groups)
- Whether tweets that provide a link to native advertising need disclosures, e.g., #sponsored
