On average, native made up 31% of overall advertising revenue for magazine publishers in 2017 — up from 21% in 2016.

This has in turn lead to increased expectations among publishers for the 2018 results. 69% of magazine publishers expect that native will have driven more of their annual advertising revenue this year than last year, and they expect native to drive 46% of their total annual advertising revenue in three years. This is up from the 2017 three-year projection of 40%.

The research provides you with answers to: 

  • How magazine publishers view native advertising in general
  • Budget expectations for native advertising in the magazine industry
  • How publishers are organising around their native advertising efforts
  • How the magazine publishers measure native advertising effectiveness
  • Threats and opportunities according to magazine publishers

The findings in this report are based on answers from 150 magazine executives from 41 countries across the globe.
