Interview summary

Brand advertisers must be wary of the dangers of ad fraud that come with investing in an already crowded digital video ad space, according to Wayne Gattinella, president and CEO of global marketing agency DoubleVerify. eMarketer’s Sean Creamer spoke with Gattinella about how brands will face challenges such as ad fraud in 2017.


eMarketer: What are your three best practices in digital video advertising for brand marketers in 2017?

Wayne Gattinella: No. 1 is managing the quality of the placement. There’s a lot of focus on viewability, but when you’re running a large campaign it’s critical that you’re also managing the quality of the placement in terms of the context it’s appearing in. Make sure the serving environment is brand safe.
