The secret to native advertising is…

The secret of negative advertising is getting good stories that appeal to customers and to readers at the same time — and get the maximum reach out of it. So, it’s not only about good stories, but it’s also about distribution.

The biggest challenge for native advertising is…

The biggest challenge is actually sales because it’s a new format so it takes a lot of convincing the customer. And it’s also a product that is not sold overnight so it will probably take some month to do it. And you need experienced salesmen out there that can explain the product properly to the customer.
