Not getting out of it: Digital advertising has changed. Display ads (often called banner ads) are the best way to promote content online. Now, marketers are shifting their advertising costs to local advertising. But what is the difference between the two formats, and why are native ads more effective than display ads?

This guide explains the differences between Display advertising and Native advertising in terms of performance, performance, revenue, and more.

Previous online ads did not have the advertiser’s logo. According to Mashable, AT&T was not yet fully signed at the time of publication. However, it is ironic that First Display Advertising has some similarities with future local advertising – it is not immediately clear who the advertiser is, nor is it visually related to the advertiser brand. 

Display Ads Vs Native Ads

 Before directly starting with the comparison we need to understand the two terms i.e Display and Native Ads differently. In this way, it will be more precise and clear. So let’s begin.

Display Ads

Just go through the video below explaining display Ads:



Display advertising is a way to attract visitors to a website, social media platform, or other digital media to take a specific action. It often consists of image or video ads or text-based ads that encourage the user to click the landing page and take action (e.g. buy).

Most display and online advertising campaigns are charged on a per click (CPC) basis. This means that every time a search engine user clicks on your ad, you will be charged based on your total bidding strategy.

They can also be used to restart campaigns. Ads are shown here for users who have already visited a particular website. The goal is to “retarget” and encourage people to return to the website to take the same action (or action at a different stage of the funnel).

Native Ads

Go through the video below explaining Native advertising for a better understanding

Native or local advertising, also known as sponsored content is a type of advertising that fits the platform and function that appears. In most cases, it acts as an advertisement and appears in the form of a video, article, or editorial. The original term refers to this compatibility of the content with other media found on the platform.

These ads undermine consumer advertising identity, whether labeled as “sponsored” or “branded” content by merging it into the original content on the platform. Readers may find it difficult to identify ads due to their vague nature, especially when using ambiguous labels “of the web”.

Product advertising (embedded marketing) is a precursor to local advertising. The former keeps the product within content, but in local marketing, legally allowed as long as there is sufficient exposure in the UK, the product and content are merged.

Key differences between Display Ads Vs Native Ads

Display Ads vs Native Ads


There are many differences between Display and Native advertising, which show why local advertising is so popular with marketers and web users.

For starters, consumers do not like banner ads; 81% of them take care not to see ad blockers. Even among people who do not use ad blockers, ad blindness means skating over ad banners as if their eyes were not there. It is not surprising that display ads do not get the results they used. In addition, people hate hard sales, which is display advertising. 

In contrast, Native ads take a smooth-selling approach. They are integrated and related to what users are already looking at. Web users have more than just reading and clicking annoying banner ads. Additionally, they can choose whether to read, watch or listen to the original ad material. When it comes to promoted content, likes outweigh the odds every time.

It is also a question of time. Banner ads interrupt people when they are in the middle of consuming content online. No one likes that; This is a bad user experience. However, when people are looking for more information local ads like the recommended content widget will appear. They do not interrupt the experience.

Display advertising vs. Native advertising revenue and traffic

There is also a huge difference in revenue and performance of banner advertising versus banner advertising. Display ads have a low clickthrough rate (CTR) of just 0.07%. In other words, for every 10,000 people who see your ad, only 7 will click. Meanwhile, our local advertising statistics show that local advertising is eight times more than CTR display ads.

Native ads also drive more traffic because they encourage web users to read or view content related to the content they are already interested in. For example, web traffic increased by 950% during the initial advertising campaign for BombShell.

Marketers can make original content more effective with programmatic local/native advertising. It uses the power of machine learning to make original content more relevant and engaging.

Companies get more revenue from local advertising. According to data from Share through, consumers see 54% more Native ads than display ads. And, as a result of local advertising, purchasing power increases by 19%. By the end of 2021, it should come as no surprise that eMarketer estimates that marketers will spend at least two-thirds of their advertising budget on Native advertising.

Display or Native advertising – which one?

Programmatic advertising – the automated purchase and sale of online ad space – has made Native ads easier and more popular than ever. And as more and more users are using pop-up blockers (or similar software), Native ads may seem like a better solution in the marketplace for these users.

However, for the reasons we have just mentioned, display ads are still relevant and especially important to enhance brand awareness and remarketing opportunities. Smart marketers use their budgets to effectively design a mixed content delivery strategy that enhances the strength of both Native and display ads.

Advertising Competition – Native Overtake Advertising Market Share

Although the term display advertising has been around for over 21 years, the term ‘local advertising’ was coined in 2011. Still, over the years, local advertising has faced some stiff competition, surpassing display advertising as a leader in online advertising. 

According to this study, local ads get 53% more views than display ads and they contribute much more ‘brand growth’ than display ads. With 55% of local advertising for online advertising in the US in 2015, the cost of local advertising is projected to grow exponentially, reaching 75% by 2021.
