If you're looking for new revenue sources, you've likely heard the terms native advertising and sponsored content, often used interchangeably. Does the difference matter, and is it a concern for your readers and editors?
If you're like most publishers, it's a safe bet at least 25% of your traffic originates from a mobile device. Now, Google's new ranking algorithm has made Responsive Design an essential business strategy; with ePublishing's mobile-friendly experience supporting transactions, registrations, and advertising, you can safely avoid Mobilegeddon.
You’ve heard the term, a lot. Native advertising is a reality. But as with many new “must have” tactics, we end up asking ourselves, “What exactly is it and how exactly should I be handling it?” That’s a good question, especially when the publishing world at large is still trying to define native advertising.
If you aren’t operating with a multi-tier taxonomy system and working diligently to deliver related, highly relevant content to your readers, then you are likely selling yourself short, not just in content marketing, but also in advertising revenue.
As a BtoB publisher, you know that revenue diversity is the key to success in our digital world. It’s no wonder that buyers' guides or directories are becoming an even more powerful tool for publishers—providing valuable information to readers and precious ad space to sponsors and advertisers.
