According to a new study from The Myers Report, agency and brand marketer executives consider NPR and Hulu to be their most trusted partners, with Hallmark Channel and PBS offering the most brand-safe content environments. More than three-quarters of advertiser and agency executives consider "trusted partners" and "brand-safe environment" to be the most important contributors to their media decision-making process. Only "relevant audience reach" rates as a more important media planning/buying consideration. Fielded in December and January, The Myers Report's new Survey on Media Company B2B Relationships, Services and Value, now in its 36th year of providing exclusive insights to media, agencies, marketers and investors, defines brand-safe environment as "content and surroundings are trusted by me/my clients." Trusted partner is defined as "delivers on promises; data is clear and credible." The New York Times, MLB Advanced Media, NPR and Weather/IBM also rate highly for Brand Safe Environment. Google/YouTube, Ion Media Network, Weather/IBM, PBS and Captivate are also highly rated as Trusted Partners. The Myers Report's detailed survey results are reported exclusively to MyersBizNet member companies. Members can scroll down for the top 20 companies rated as "excellent" for Trust and Brand Safety.

Amazon, Netflix, Instagram and YouTube have the greatest vitality among 147 leading media brands, according to a new study of 1,200 media agency and brand marketing professionals conducted by MediaVillage. Media brand vitality was assessed based on survey respondents’ perceptions of each media brand’s sustainability (ability of the brand to thrive in the new media world) and differentiation (magnitude of difference between the brand and its closest competitors). Amazon has become the fastest growing ad-supported platform, generating an estimated $10 billion in ad revenues in 2018 with projected ad revenues approaching $25 billion by 2022. Although Netflix and HBO do not offer advertising opportunities, agency executives appear prepared to support the platforms when and if they decide to open sponsorship opportunities. Respondents to the MediaVillage survey rated Amazon 9.1 on a 10-point scale for sustainability, the highest rating assigned to any media brand in any of the five brand equity attributes measured in the survey.
