Native Advertising Trends 2016

Research - Trends and Insights

Welcome to this first edition of our annual report ‘Native Advertising Trends 2016: The Magazine Industry’.

140 magazine executives from 39 countries across the Globe have been kind enough to answer the questions in our survey and we are thrilled to share the insights with you.

Native advertising is one of the hottest topics in the publishing industry today. We see it in the massive interest demonstrated on our blog at Native Advertising Institute and at our annual event, Native Advertising Days. And we see it in the results of this survey.

More than half of the publishers are already offering native advertising as a product and another 37% are likely to jump onboard. The report shows us that native advertising is not without challenges (16% have had audience complaints as a result of native advertising) but it also holds great opportunities and, on average, publishers expect 33% of their overall advertising revenues to come from native advertising in 2018.

Other topics that you can dive into in this report are how publishers sell, produce, measure, and distribute native advertising - just to mention a few.

Our ambition is to help publishers, brands and agencies become successful with native advertising. This report is one step on that journey and we are grateful that FIPP decided to take it with us.

Enjoy our Report - Thank You.
