Reset and Rebuild for 2021: What Covid-19 has taught us about safeguarding brand reputation

The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the digital landscape. A recent Kantar study found web browsing has increased 70% since the global spread of COVID-19, but despite this huge uptick in media consumption, publishers are missing out on millions in ad revenue because of advertisers’ fears around having their ads appear next to COVID-19 related content.
Given the crucial role of trusted content publishers in keeping the public safe and well-informed, a more considered approach should be implemented. Our survey, UNcovered: How Coronavirus Pandemic Is Changing Consumer Behaviour found that at 56% of respondents had an increased interest in news across in Australia during the height of the pandemic.
Join Unruly and our esteemed panel of experts to discuss how brands should approach advertising and in particular, keyword blocking during uncertain times. As we approach 2021, what does the industry need to do in order to reset and rebuild?

Capturing the Connected TV Opportunity

To help brands navigate the transition to CTV, Unruly conducted a global survey of over 4,000 consumers that builds on their previous research conducted in April 2020.

The latest research identifies consumers’ attitudes to CTV, consumption habits and ad preferences five months after the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the pandemic has rapidly accelerated the growth of CTV, it’s more important than ever before that brands understand and embrace the medium.

During this session, Unruly’s Insights expert Rebecca Waring presents the Australian findings, outlining what advertisers and publishers need to know to stay ahead.
