Sponsored content is a type of native advertising that has been around a while and has remained steadfast in reaching users effectively.

Organisations can commission a publisher to create and distribute content consistent with its platform. As sponsored content allows the sponsor to leverage a publication’s following, it is presented in an environment that covers topics of a similar nature, creating a more organic experience for a reader, and offering an overall more candid approach to marketing.  

As more organisations adopt sponsored content, join us to discuss the value of sponsored content and how it differs from other forms of editorial and advertisements.

  • Find out how you can improve your following through publications
