Silverpush ensures that brand advertisements are displayed on brand-safe content without over blocking their reach.

In an age where consumers increasingly choose to watch videos on demand, YouTube has become the most popular video platform worldwide. 

According to a survey done on YouTube, there are 2.1 billion YouTube users worldwide and around 500M hours of video content is uploaded to the video platform every minute.

The video giant has become the leading online destination for millions of users from around the world. YouTube has 81% reach in the United States, and its mobile versions are doing equally well abroad.

As we can witness an increasing number of consumers shifting to the digital sphere, the necessity to maintain brand safety and suitability on YouTube has also risen.

YouTube advertisers demand campaigns that are not only safe and suitable but those that perform well. 

Unfortunately, often it happens that the measures they’re taking for safety and suitability are so restrictive that the good content along with the bad gets blocked from the ads getting displayed on it. This affects both scale and ad performance negatively. 

This blog is for every agency, advertiser, or publisher who is on the lookout for best practices to ensure brand suitability on YouTube at every stage of their ad campaign.

Demand for Brand Safety and Suitability Worldwide

37% of media agencies believe that without brand suitability measures, ads may serve in unsafe contexts.

Brand safety and company suitability are always changing and play an important part in sustaining a brand’s reputation in the digital advertising sphere.

Brand safety policies have been highlighted by digital marketers, agencies, and media alike. This is critical if you do not want to lose clients as a result of poor brand alignment.

Even after spending millions of dollars on advertising, any company would not want to mix fake news with genuine digital advertising.

During the COVID-19 times, the industry has seen an inclination toward brand suitability. Customers demand more from brands and want more control and confidence in the solutions they use.

Brand suitability bridges the risk-opportunity gap by enabling digital marketers to target safe, acceptable, and brand-building material using context-based restrictions.

Challenges Faced with Brand Safety and Suitability on YouTube

Brand safety is concerned with preventing the loss of trust between a brand and a customer. This is because, without trust, income, brand equity, and consumer interests are lowered or eliminated.

The solution to this challenge is a transparent digital advertising brand safety vendor relationship.

Advertisers must understand that the brand safety approach used for their digital advertising initiatives works at the speed of culture. 

This can help in absorbing new issues as they arise, and does not over-block information or allow unsafe/unsuitable content to pass through.

This happens mostly during keyword blocking and domain-level allow and blocklisting. Many keywords with varied meanings and URL domains that store information on a wide range of topics are shelved as a result of over-blocking.

Many businesses fail to implement brand suitability successfully owing to an inability to identify a holistic solution.

According to a recent survey, 49% of marketers have experienced brand suitability failure, 54% have faced customer antagonism, and 44% have lost money as a result.
