September 2019: Great start into an intensive fall
We expect fall and Q4 to be a highly intensive period in the true native advertising market, as usual. Despite a lot of news lately about reduced marketing spend in the wake of a potential economic slowdown, activity in the last month was quite high. We counted 375 articles from over 180 brands.
Most active topics were once again Business & Finance, Automotive and Home & Garden. But especially towards the end of the month, both Real Estate and Travel have been trending topics. This is also well represented in the top 10 of the most active brands below that are entirely new compared to last month.

Over 120 brands (re)started running sponsored articles during september 2019
As mentioned, Real estate – with e.g. Riksbyggen or Svensk Fastighetsförmedling – and Travel were trending topics, but also certain Medical Health related natives from e.g. Voltaren or Apoteket started appearing as we enter the colder months.
Among the brands who restarted running native advertising in September is also Oatly – who was in both industry and national media in the past few weeks for its advertising campaign to “flush the milk” (down the drain).
