A native ad fits the natural form and function of the environment where it appears. For example, an Instagram ad is made to look like an Instagram post, but on a content publishing site, such as The Atlantic, an ad resembles a featured story within the news stream.
Native Ads must be an image that contains no text, along with a catchy headline. Native ad sizes are 600x500, 600x600, and 600x315. To ensure access to all native ad inventory, make sure you have ads in all three sizes.
Image: Use striking images 600x315px or larger. Our ad builder makes it easy to crop and zoom. Avoid text, logos, and clutter.
Title: Draw interest with your headline. We recommend longer headlines, up to 90 characters.
Description: Explain your brand, product, or content. We recommend longer descriptions, up to 140 characters.
Brand Name: Display your brand name in 30 characters or less.
