Leverage Existing Assets to Increase Impact
The Related Content Widget enables advertisers to leverage existing creatives as companion assets to increase brand impact. Companion assets are a value-add for advertisers as they provide valuable branding and engagement opportunities. In fact, a recent study by Forbes and IPG Media Lab found that aided ad recall was 60% for branded content with display, compared to only 25% for display alone. The Related Content Widget runs on the Native Article page and serves additional sponsored content from the advertiser. This is a key value-add publishers can now offer advertisers.


Increased Transparency and Controls

In the world of digital advertising, publishers struggle with demand transparency and measurement. To help solve this problem and to empower publishers, Nativo added new metrics on the Demand Reports tab to enable deeper reporting insights. These new metrics include Demand Category, Demand Source and Buyer Organization.

The Demand Category is defined by the relationship with the selling entity and includes: Direct, Preferred, Marketplace and Third-party demand. The Demand Source is defined by the marketplace where the demand comes from and includes: Nativo Premium, Nativo Plus, Nativo Open and private marketplaces. Try these new tools today and gain deeper demand insights.

Coming Soon: Manage and Optimize Demand Seamlessly

From the most premium demand in the market to integrated third-party fill solutions, the Nativo platform offers publishers robust options for monetization. A new Monetization tab, coming soon, will provide publishers with greater controls to seamlessly manage demand.

The new Monetization tab will provide publishers with a streamlined workflow for demand management. Publishers can opt-in to demand at the marketplace level and then specify allowed ad types, serving policy, pricing floors, and more. Within a given marketplace, it is simple to block a specific demand provider or ad type. Publishers can select to allow performance rate types and also set geographic restrictions.

In short, the Monetization tab makes demand management simple. If you would like to be a Beta partner for the Monetization tab, please contact your Account Manager.
