Brand safety has never been in more danger than in the past year or so, what with offensive or inappropriate content, hateful speech and fake news jumping out at the Internet users right next to brand ads.

Not only that but when asked, consumers have largely stated that they would not like, recommend or purchase from a brand whose ad they saw next to unsafe content. On the other hand, they are sure to gravitate towards brands affiliated with a cause close to their hearts (like in the case of the “A Voice For Cats”: Essay Contest Scholarship”.

In that sense, here are 5 things to do to protect your brand from unsafe content.
