“YouTube offers an incredible opportunity to reach video consumers at the moment they are most engaged with the content they care about,” said Jeremy Stewart, SVP product & engineering of Giant Media. “Through VuePlanner we’re enabling buyers to view YouTube inventory pre-bid, providing better video-level targeting by curating the most contextually relevant video content environments that are suitable for brand advertising.”
Through VuePlanner, brands and agencies gain access to a suite of tools that enable them to transparently plan down to the video level, selecting each individual YouTube video URL before the campaign is bought. VuePlanner allows buyers to hand-curate and build contextually relevant YouTube segments by using proprietary data that includes engagement, scale, sentiment and relevancy rankings. VuePlanner calculates a VueScore placement quality metric for each campaign by processing and segmenting data from millions of videos on YouTube; scanning and filtering videos by concept and page sentiment through a partnership with IBM Watson; and a proprietary algorithm that determines content relevancy, user engagement and traffic trends over time.
Advertisers and agencies can learn more about their current YouTube campaigns for free by inputting YouTube video IDs or URLs into VuePlanner’s Placement Scan at: https://app.vueplanner.com. With insights from more than 100 million monetizable YouTube videos, the tool provides an analysis of the brand suitability and contextual relevance of a sample of the videos they’ve been running TrueView ads against.
Giant Media, since 2012, has managed more than 5,000 campaigns on YouTube for 1,000 different brands. To learn more about VuePlanner, visit: www.vueplanner.com.
