As brands continue to expand their programs to produce original content, Forbes is focused on creating better distribution streams that also add value to the user experience on the site. Sharethrough Sponsored Stories has enabled us to create an additive, revenue driving placement that is well tailored for engagement with original brand content.

Sharethrough brought a personal touch to our partnership that enabled us to create a program that really fits Thought Catalog’s individual needs. We’ve felt a real ownership of the Sharethrough integration throughout our time working with them and feel confident in them as a partner as we continue to grow.

Sharethrough has been a great partner to Automattic and WordPress.com. Their native solution integrated seamlessly into our platform and provided an entertaining and non-interruptive revenue channel. They continue to provide us premium video content from top brands and follow it up with excellent customer service all along the way.

Net new revenue with Sharethrough Native Placements
Unlike interruptive pre-rolls or banner ad intrusions, Sharethrough’s native placements match the unique look and feel of your individual site; so you can get paid without sacrificing the user experience.
Native Placements + Branded Content. Welcome to the future of web monetization.
Brand content is integrated into the organic look and feel of publisher sites. To experience the content users click through to individual, high quality viewing pages.
Contextually targeted brand content is delivered in-page within the content. The content flows with the natural experience of the page, capturing the attention of engaged readers.
Brand content is integrated within content feeds on the homepage of social discovery and premium editorial sites. Brand content is placed near the freshest content and can be watched directly within the feed.
Videos are integrated directly within a social game. When a user chooses to watch the video, the game is paused and the Sharethrough video player is overlayed on the screen to provide a full viewing experience.
Banners and boxes just don’t work on mobile. Go Native.
