What is Native Advertising?

Native advertising is an opportunity for brands to place their own educational, high-quality content in the content well. Native ads give marketers the ability to have a more in-depth, educational experience with readers resulting in higher engagement and more time spent consuming the advertiser’s message resulting in a stronger and more powerful brand impression. Native ads by their nature are specifically educational and informative to the reader. These ads are a great way for you to leverage your investment in whitepapers and other existing content, or you can create new, high-quality targeted content.

Native advertising is intended to provide useful or otherwise engaging, non-promotional information to commercial cleaning professionals. It should not be advertising that aims to sell a specific product or service.

In general, native advertising seeks to inform cleaning professionals, and should be based on objective information rather than unsubstantiated claims. That information can be drawn from many sources (interviews, analysis, surveys etc.). Native advertising seeks to meet the standards created and maintained by the editorial team. The goal is to create a favorable impression of the sponsor based on the quality of the content. For example, native advertising might cover best practices or challenges facing cleaning professionals in a specific type or area of building. It could also address a specific type of technology or process. Whatever the angle, the information should be objective and informative, not promotional. The description of a single product or product line, the capabilities of a company, etc., is not appropriate for native advertising. Similarly, a product release or product literature would not be appropriate. A well-researched case study, on the other hand, could qualify for a native advertising campaign. All native ads will be reviewed by the editorial staff of to ensure that if adheres to these policies. Our e-Media producer will work with customers to have their content posted on the site.
