It doesn’t matter what you’re advertising, without a clear, concise and diligent ad clearance process, underpinned by innovative tech and extensive experience, campaigns can become derailed.
Ad clearance is much more than making sure your T&Cs are in order. Non-compliant ad assets, poor placement, and talent and usage rights conflicts are among the three most pressing issues facing brand marketers today.
At best, an ad clearance mistake will make a dent in your quarterly ad budget—at worst, it will damage your brand reputation so badly that you will have to spend untold amounts of time and money restoring trust. The ‘Would You Rather’ campaign is a prime example.
And while mistakes on such a scale may not be commonplace, there are many smaller oversights that may seem obvious, but in fact are the main reasons for delayed or even cancelled campaigns:
- Not having the correct music or talent rights in place by channel and by campaign period.
- Technical errors that affect the visibility or quality of your ads and ultimately, waste time, money, and resources.
- Ad assets published via the wrong channels, reaching the wrong audience.
- Incorrect regional ad compliance.
This imperfect storm of clearance mismanagement, while common across industries, isn’t necessary in today’s tech-driven world. There is a better way.
