The Pitfalls of Traditional Brand Governance

Many brands rely on internal or outsourced teams to manually track, score, and organize creative assets that are fit to run according to a global set of brand mandatories and platform best practices. And any global brand would be smart to do so! However, implementing human checks and balances to ensure creative is meeting the mark quickly becomes costly and time consuming—not to mention rife with inevitable human error.

By the time an asset has been scanned, scored, and filed by one team so that another can find and flight the asset in an upcoming campaign, lots of time and resource cost has been spent before the brand will ever see a penny on ROI. And without a solid guarantee that the asset is fit to run in the first place, there’s significant risk all that ad spend could be for naught.

Put simply, it’s not an ideal long-term solution for managing a growing, global brand.

3 Ways to Scale Brand Governance
