How can we help?

General
Why was Coverstories designed?

Visionary brands deserve a beautiful and compelling way to get their stories in the media. Coverstories offers the digital equivalent of a branded special in a printed newspaper or magazine. Our goal is to rid the world of ugly advertorials and confusing native ads, by standing out instead of blending in.

How does it work?

We distribute Coverstories in the mobile ad space of the media titles of your choice. With one tap, your cover opens into a fullscreen, scrollable magazine-like story. Coverstories can carry long form articles as well as video’s and photography. The call to action at the end takes readers to any of your own webpages. Readers can always return to the host publication by tapping the close button.

Who can use Coverstories?

Our service is built to be used by brands, who get their own account for creating and promoting thier Coverstories. Creative agencies and media agencies can get an agency account, allowing them to switch between multiple brands.

How do you keep out clickbait and fake news?

No Coverstory will ever be published without a pair of human eyes checking the suitability and editorial quality of its content, as well as compliance with our general terms and conditions.

Do you produce content too?

No. We're here to help brands who produce their own content (or their agencies) reach more people with their stories.

Why choose Coverstories over older native advertising solutions?

Native advertising is a messy space where brands have lost influence over the way their stories are presented. You either have to face questionable content appearing alongside your articles or your stories appearing on low-quality websites for the sake of reach. Our mission is to infuse native advertising with beauty and accountability while embracing the ever expanding power of mobile.

Which media titles are available?

We place your Coverstories in your preferred selection of media, which can include national newspapers, news websites, magazines and business titles. Our system optimises delivery based on reach and engagement. Create an account for an overview of the current options.

Why is Coverstories mobile-only?

Smartphones turned into our primary device to interact with the world. In 2019, adults in the West spent more than three hours a day on their mobile screen. The majority of visitors to online news titles is mobile, growing every month. That's why we focus on providing the best mobile reading experience for branded stories.

How can Coverstories help to reach our campaign goals?

Here you can get conversions depending on your campaign goal: drive downloads, get subscriptions and followers, invite people to a shopping page or make them sign up for an event.
