The Importance of Ad Context
Any time you're running a display ad in print, you obviously want to choose the venue -- the magazine or paper you're running in. You want your ad to match the audience.

Even if they don't feature you alongside your content (as it might appear to be a conflict of interest), having content and a print ad in the same issue is a way of reinforcing brand awareness and your message. This is an instance when I most encourage print ads.
