There is so much negative talk about native that this classic story – based on Shakespeare tale Taming of the Shrew seemed like a good title with some adjustments of course…
But when you really dig into native advertising – specifically from a marketer’ point of view – this title couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Let’s face it native advertising has gotten a really bad rap. How many of you have seen the Jon Oliver segment about native advertising – hysterically funny! If you haven’t seen it, Just google Jon Oliver and native advertising and get ready for 11 minutes of tear inducing laughs – to sum it up, he’s not a fan of a certain type of native advertising.
Of course there are just plain weird expressions of native advertising – Is this really a thing?
