In your face advertising can be like a greasy car salesman…and let’s face it, that’s not appealing to anyone. This is not how you want to portray your CBD company. In order to elevate your CBD brand, you have to take your marketing strategy to the next level. Native advertising for CBD works well for cannabis and CBD brands alike.
What are Native Advertisements?
Native advertisements are designed to blend into the surrounding content, form, and function of the platform that they are being displayed on. This is a more subtle form of advertising that allows your brand to fit-in while avoiding disruption of the audience’s experience. Well-designed ads blend in with page content that the audience is already interested in and engaged with. This means your target audience is able to become better informed about your dispensary before they ever visit your brand’s site.
Types of Native Advertisement Placement
There are three different types of native advertisement placements that your CBD brand can take advantage of. They include:
- In-feed native ads – This type of advertisement is placed in the content feed of web pages. They imitate the site design that the ad is placed on so that it blends seamlessly for interrupted flow of information for the audience.
- Branded content – This type of placement entails publishing a brand’s content in the same format as the site’s content as a full editorial.
- Content Recommendation – This type of native ad is displayed with content from the host site. It blends in perfectly and has the ability to read a broader audience base.
Your CBD brand can utilize one, two, or all three of these native advertisement placement options depending on your company’s goals.
