Nativo Announces MNI Targeted Media as Preferred Partner to Expand Branded Content Offerings Across Regional and Local Advertisers

Partnership empowers small- and mid-size brands to scale high-performance native advertising campaigns

LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nativo, the leading technology platform for branded content advertising, today announced MNI Targeted Media (MNI), a targeted media strategy, planning, and buying company, as its preferred partner to enable regional and local advertisers’ content marketing initiatives.

Effective content marketing is able to achieve 5x more conversions than traditional display retargeting. Given the success of these tactics, in 2019 U.S. advertisers will spend $43.9 billion on native display ads, or 62.7 percent of all digital display ad spending, according to eMarketer.

Nativo offers a full suite of in-feed native advertising formats that create awareness, encourage engagement, and drive action. This preferred partnership with MNI allows advertisers to reach regional and local consumers with high-impact native advertising solutions, including Nativo’s exclusive Native Article.

“Brands of all sizes will now consistently benefit from high-performance campaigns by pairing Nativo’s highly effective sponsored content distribution platform with MNI’s expansive footprint in markets across the country, both large and small," said Casey Wuestefeld, Vice President of Platform Operations at Nativo.

Founded more than 50 years ago, MNI is a pioneer in providing targeted advertising solutions, and has ranked as comScore’s No. 1 local ad focus network for the past five years. The company has more than 80 sales representatives based in markets across the United States to deliver localized support for its nearly 1,300 advertiser clients.

“We understand the powerful impact of effective storytelling in marketing,” said Klarn DePalma, Executive Vice President of MNI. “This partnership empowers MNI regional and local advertisers with the ability to leverage the Nativo arsenal of branded content formats to generate native advertising initiatives that thrive.”
