Connected TV (CTV) is an exceptionally fast-growing advertising channel that continues to gain momentum with no signs of slowing down. 

According to data, 87% of US TV households have at least one Internet-connected TV device.

As the number of CTV households continues to rise, advertisers are swarming toward this dynamic advertising platform to maximize the impact of their ad campaigns.

However, it is essential for advertisers to maintain brand safety in CTV advertising by ensuring their ads are not placed alongside inappropriate or offensive content. Failing to do so could severely damage the advertiser’s reputation and alienate its customer base.

In 2022, the global brand safety loss was around $3.1 billion and is projected to reach $3.4 billion in 2023. 

An eye-opening study conducted by the IAB revealed that a significant 72% of advertisers express concerns about brand safety specifically in the context of CTV advertising.

Adding weight to these concerns, the same study found that 58% of advertisers have encountered instances where their ads were displayed alongside non-brand-safe content on CTV platforms.

These alarming statistics are further supported by real-life examples that highlight the pressing need for brand safety measures in CTV advertising. These instances serve as concrete evidence, illustrating the potential risks and consequences of ads being associated with objectionable or offensive content.

What is the Example of Brand Safety in CTV Advertising?

In 2021, the luxury goods brand faced a brand safety issue when its ads were shown alongside violent content on a CTV platform. The ads were placed next to a platform known for its violent content. 

This led to complaints from the product’s customers, who were concerned about their brand being associated with violence.

The brand quickly apologized for the incident and took steps to prevent it from happening again. 

The company worked with the CTV platform to ensure that its ads were placed alongside brand-safe content in the future. It also updated its brand safety policies to include CTV advertising.

This incident shows that even the most experienced brands can face brand safety issues on CTV. It is important for brands to be aware of the risks and take steps to mitigate them.
