5 Tips to Running Brand Suitable Campaigns
Determine the Type of Content that makes the most sense for your brand. Think about the audience you are looking to connect with, and what they are watching. Insider tip: pick 5 channels or videos that you want to surround and use that as a starting point to build an inclusion list.
What Does Your Brand Want to Avoid Specifically? Think about your brand values and what type of content may not make sense for you to align your brand with. Are you an alcohol brand that does not want ads on YouTube to appear next to automobile content? It is best to mimic your brand values and stay away from any content themes that may be harmful to your brand.
Think about the types of content that you would consider suitable for your brand versus those you would consider not suitable. Some categories are safe to advertise against, but not necessarily suitable for some brands. Examples may include ASMR, pranks, video games, music with expletives, news content, primitive/hunting, slime etc. For a full list of content categories to consider, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tailor the Strategy to the Brand/Market to ensure you are taking local language and cultural nuance into consideration when thinking about what content to align your brand with. Ads on youtube can be highly specific to a demographic so you wouldn’t want to misrepresent your target market and target demographics.
Consider any Applicable Laws like fair lending (financial institutions), COPPA (laws around Children's content), and LDA (laws governing alcohol in the US) to ensure your inclusion list avoids any legal pitfalls with certain content themes.
