We are excited to announce that programmatic native ads are now available to all advertisers in DoubleClick Bid Manager, allowing more brands to build beautiful ads and deliver them at scale to mobile-first audiences.
A “native ad” is a paid advertisement that fits the look, feel and function of a publisher’s content. It’s assimilated into the design so that it feels like it belongs on the page or in the app. Users are responding positively to native ads: across the DoubleClick platform, we’ve seen that users are more than 2X as likely to click on a native ad as a traditional banner.1
DoubleClick’s component-based native ad solution makes it easy for brands to create compelling native ads that look great across any site or app, and on any device. Exact audience targeting and access to thousands of premium publishers provide both reach and precision — Bid Manager’s 40+ exchange integrations give access to hundreds of billions of global monthly native impressions. And the unified workflow lets you seamlessly integrate native ads with other buys and measure native alongside other campaigns to get a holistic view of performance.
“Native allows us to deliver ads that look good, with appealing text and information, for users to learn about products. We’re able to provide users with an integrated experience.” – Elie Milan, Associate Director of Programmatic at Starcom
