Brand Safety in the Realm of Programmatic Advertising
Brand safety refers to ensuring that a brand’s ad will not appear alongside content or context that can damage its image.
Within programmatic advertising, most ad placements are automated across various websites. It involves risks associated with displaying ads on websites with a dubious reputation or content that doesn’t match the brand’s values. Such missteps often lead to detrimental consequences, including negative perception, loss of the target audience’s trust, and financial setbacks.
Furthermore, brand safety does not stand alone but operates in tandem with two interconnected concepts vital for publishers and advertisers alike:
- Brand suitability involves aligning content promotion with websites that resonate with the advertiser’s values without necessarily being contentious or harmful. It delves into the tone, audience, and messaging a company propagates.
- Brand compliance concerns adhering to the regulations and legal requirements within a specific jurisdiction. This could contain local restrictions on gambling ads, platform guidelines concerning political content, or age-related constraints prohibiting the promotion of adult content or alcohol. Non-compliance with such laws primarily results in financial penalties.
Navigating the Risks of Programmatic Advertising
Here are some of the potential associated threats:
- Displaying Ads on Low-Reputation Websites: Automated systems can poorly place ads on websites with a doubtful reputation, potentially damaging the brand’s image.
- Contextual Mismatch: Ads may appear alongside content unrelated to the brand’s theme, causing a disconnect between the ad and its intended audience.
- Bots and Fraud: Unwanted bots and fraudulent activities can manipulate programmatic advertising systems to gain illegal profits at the expense of brands.
