This Week in Native Ads 2/16

Keith Weed opened the week saying Unilever will divest from platforms that don’t combat divisive content. He quickly clarified that wasn’t quite the case. But shots fired – point made.

Notable stories this week… Continue reading

The objective was to raise awareness, engage the film voting audience and collect as many awards nominations & wins for Focus Features’ film, “Loving”.   Native content gave… Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 2/9

And we’re back, thanks to Ari for his takeover last week. If you missed it, give it a peek here. I quite liked a couple of things, changing the flow, bringing image & video. We’ll embrace that a bit more. This week we’ve seen how fast a business can unravel, with Newsweek uncovered for ad fraud. Nuts. But a cautionary tale. We’ve just had our inaugural content dinner, with a… Continue reading

So, in this post… Continue reading
