ADVERTISING / ADV. SOLUTIONS

NATIVE ADVERTISING, CONTENT MARKETING AND BRANDED ENTERTAINMENT

City by Subway promotes a non-intruding form of advertising, where content is aligned with context, to better serve users/travelers. This is why CbS values content marketing, branded entertainment and native advertising. The final goal is to make advertisements not or less intruding, so that they don’t interfere with the enjoyment of content by users. This approach should bring value to user's experience and thus will benefit also Brands.

Modern technology allows for video production with limited budgets. This is why is essential to create valuable content, and to make professional videos, based on storytelling and on professional production and direction. Even though technology is widely available, CbS believes that quality comes from professionalism, as well as from a direct contact with clients (in order to understand their communication needs to be expressed through videos). Through the publisher network (city, line, and station publishers), CbS will provide support in format design and content creation for local sponsors.
