What is Sponsored Content and does it work?
Of course, it works! Sponsored Content is premium content that you pay a publisher to create and publish in a newspaper and in digital format that resembles the publication’s editorial content. Sponsored Content is an ad that looks like an actual article that fits into the format of a newspaper page and website page. It’s not an in-your-face type of ad, it’s more of a subtle ad that is a more credible view to the reader. Sponsored Content looks like any other content on a newspaper page or digital newspaper page.
Reach Targets and Generate Leads
Sponsored Content is a sponsorship between the advertiser and the publisher. It allows you to reach, target, and generate leads with new clients looking to purchase your products or services. This type of content allows you to reach more viewers than ever before. Not only are you advertising in the newspaper and digitally, but your brand is also being picked up by social media influencers and others who will share your article on social media platforms.

What makes Sponsored Content so appealing to businesses and clients
Instead of readers thinking they just saw an advertisement they came across with a feeling like they have just learned something new. This feeling makes them feel like they would enjoy using your product. Sponsored Content gives your brand a more memorable, trustworthy, and credible read. Sponsored Content can give your business brand up to 50% more readability and purchase power than other types of advertising. This type of advertising can give you four times more leads than paid search advertising.
