Content Advertising

Content developed for promotion via paid advertising channels is content advertising. Paid advertising channels can include pay-per-click (PPC), paid social and sponsored placement. Though it may seem confusing, content advertising is not content marketing. While content marketing focuses on brand awareness through organic opportunities, content advertising focuses on brand awareness through paid advertising opportunities.
