Native advertising at APG: What it is, what it isn’t and why your clients will want it

Native advertising is content that is produced on behalf of or by a sponsor who has paid for the privilege, and that matches both the form and function of the user experience in which it is placed. In other words, it's stories, photos, videos or social media that is interesting, compelling and educational that appears in the content flow of a website and is sponsored by an advertiser. At APG Media of Southern Minnesota, we have been working on implementing a native advertising program for a few months. We've been talking to our clients about what native is and how it can help them grow revenue and their brand.
