Monolith Partners, on Quantum Advertising’s initiative, has just carried out the first study about the perception of digital in general and native advertising, in particular by “premium” brands, with regards to beauty, fashion, luxury and travel.
Brand marketing and media managers took part in the study, which confirmed three major tendencies:
- Continued migration of advertising investments towards the digital (22% dedicate part of the media budget to digital, but peaks at 60% for certain brands) ;
- Increased awareness of programmatic tools, already tested or used by almost 90% of the brands, confirming that knowledge of programming and premium are more complementary than contradictory ;
- High degree of satisfaction with native advertising, 60% of the businesses questioned wanted to at least double their investments in this new advertising approach in 2016.
Laurent Foisset, the President of Monolith revealed a few of this study’s insights:
« Almost all of the businesses that took part in the study regretted advertising saturation and are looking for solutions which are better integrated. Non-interruptive approaches are popular. Luxury brands, even more so than others, are looking for new ways to communicate their values and know-how. They have a lot to say and Native allows them to pass on their messages and content in a way which respects the user experience. »
Foisset, who has helped numerous premium brands as manager of a media agency, goes on to say,
« 2016 will indisputably be Native’s year because solutions exist which allow qualitative and industrial diffusion, without being limited to special operations which can be complicated and complex. The programmatic approach allows us to give Native real scale effects, and that’s a real game changer. »
