A Marketer's Guide To YouTube Brand Safety: How To Avoid A PR Nightmare

YouTube, the world’s largest video-sharing platform, has over one billion users. Launched in 2005, the site was created for users to share self-made content, a factor which has contributed heavily to its popularity. In a move towards profitability, YouTube added ads in 2008. Brands among the likes of Expedia, Nike, and Verizon now pay to place ads before, during, and after videos, reaching millions of consumers. In turn, YouTube profits and its creators have a chance to make a living.

However, the user-generated content that populates YouTube isn’t always without flaws. In recent years, brands have been shocked to see their ads run alongside videos that range from controversial to extremist.

A recent survey of 104 marketing experts revealed that 78% are more concerned about brand safety now than 12 months ago. Evidently, brand safety on YouTube is an increasingly important issue. Here we’ll examine how YouTube ad placement works, discuss its complicated history, and offer steps advertisers can follow to manage their reputation on the platform.

Marketing To Teens: How To Reach Gen Z With Influencers

Marketing To Teens: How To Reach Gen Z With Influencers

For the latest influencer marketing news, resources, and case studies, subscribe to our weekly newsletter.

Why Influencers Are The Key To Marketing To Teens

Teens in today’s economy have a massive buying power of $44 billion annually, but an attention span of only eight seconds. Because of the growing role of teens as consumers, advertisers are making bigger and bigger efforts to reach them. However, the limited attention span of the average teenager — which is shorter than that of a goldfish — makes this task increasingly difficult.

Influencer marketing offers brands a new way to communicate with their target audiences and has been particularly impactful for reaching members of Generation Z (the largely teen generation that includes individuals born between 1996 and 2010). This relatively new advertising strategy leverages the power of social media influencers to market a brand, product, or service to specific audiences.

As teens in Generation Z abandon traditional media, influencer marketing has become an essential strategy for reaching them. Here, we’ll explore why influencer marketing is one of the most effective ways to influence teenagers’ purchase decisions.

Top Influencers Weigh In On Snapchat's Insights Tool & Its Support (Or Lack Thereof) For The Creator Community

Snapchat’s relationship with influencers can be boiled down into two words: it’s complicated.

Unlike competing platform YouTube, which fosters positive creator relationships through initiatives like Play Buttons, Super Chat, its annual Rewind video, and YouTube Red, Snapchat has been repeatedly criticized for failing to support influencers. As a result, many have left the platform.

However, recent events indicate that Snapchat is turning the tide with influencers. Following an extremely successful Q4 2017, Snapchat just announced a new analytics tool called Insights. The tool will provide data to influencers, giving them the information they need to grow and thrive on the platform.

Here we’ll take a closer look at Insights, examine Snapchat’s complicated history with influencers, and discuss why influencers are central to the app’s success.
