BUILD BRAND LOYALTY
Gone are the days of using old advertising and sales pitches. Consumers are unlikely to fall for them. It’s time to get creative! Create ads that allow customers to learn and know your brand, so they feel connected and feel loyal to it. You might even consider creating an ad that very minimally mentions or shows your product. If you use people in your advertising, use regular every-day people your customers can relate to.
Augmented reality allows companies to use something that already exists but use it in a way for customers to see for themselves how certain products will look and fit into their lives and homes. Furniture and design brands are using augmented reality to do just that.

Those two reasons alone are reason enough to use native ads.
