Nativo Enters Into Content Distribution Agreement With Associated Press

The Associated Press has selected Nativo as its native advertising platform to deliver content marketing and native advertising to its member publishers. The relationship with Nativo will help AP's custom content and distribution division, AP Content Services, meet brand and agency demand for native advertising by allowing AP to build a scalable, cross-platform native distribution operation. Through Nativo, AP's publisher distribution network includes premier digital properties across the U.S. AP and 10 of its members - including Hearst, McClatchy and Digital First - already completed a test campaign on the platform, targeting branded content to a network of publisher audiences nationwide. Hearst, for example, found that its audiences across SFGate, Houston Chronicle and Seattle P-I spent an average of 125 seconds on content: a rate more than 750% higher than the industry's rich media benchmark. The most important shift in digital advertising is that brand content now lives at the heart of marketers' consumer messaging. AP understands this and is leveraging Nativo's content advertising technologies to position themselves at the forefront of this transformation, delivering greater value and scale to their advertisers and affiliate publishers. AP has incredible history, breadth and reach, and we're honored to be working with them. Using Nativo, AP will onboard and activate the digital properties of all its members that opt in to AP's native advertising initiative. AP's brand content executions will inherit each member property's unique look, feel and behavior, leveraging the full spectrum of native formats anchored by Nativo's proven execution for deeper consumer engagement (an average click-through rate at 0.8%, which is 700% higher than industry display benchmarks).
