How Will Native Advertising And Content Marketing Unfold In 2017?. Marketers realize that connecting with consumers through content is better than advertising: Smart marketers now know that when consumers engage with their content, they engage with their brand. With marketers increasing focus on content marketing, they will turn to native advertising as a key content distribution strategy in 2017. Moreover, these connections with content don’t have the limited shelf life that a display ad or even a 30-second spot has. Content marketing, and using content to deliver brand engagement, is the future of advertising. In 2017, we'll see a real shift toward optimizing the content we actually consume post-click.

Content drives more meaningful engagement with consumers — and, ultimately, greater ROI on media spend than traditional display advertising does.

With marketers increasing focus on content marketing, they will turn to native advertising as a key content distribution strategy in 2017.

If the content is good enough, consumers will engage with brand content even in long forms, which is a huge boon for brand-building.
