Unilever Now Demands Value For Its Digital Ad Bucks

A Unilever media executive says the company has tightened its payment policy for in-view browser ads because it should “get what we pay for”.

The tougher policy, announced last October, requires that at least half of a video ad must be played when in view with the sound turned on throughout viewing. The policy requires that an ad viewer must also press “play” instead of it being an auto-start. Unilever’s Sarah Mansfield said, “The industry standards are just not adequate enough for us as a big advertiser in this space.”
