Check My Ads is brand safety training that empowers marketers to protect their brands.
We founded Check My Ads in response to the most pervasive problem in the advertising industry: marketers are in the dark about where their ads end up online — and those ads are inevitably ending up in bad places on the web.
It’s not good for you. It’s not good for your brand. And it’s not good for your relationships with customers. Especially at a time when their trust in you matters more than ever.
Our mission at Check My Ads is for you to regain control of your own ads. In today's overly complex advertising supply chain, we help you identify where your ad dollars are going and to align your media buy with your values.
As marketers ourselves, we believe you should be able to run high-performing campaigns safely and cost-effectively, without the fear of accidentally supporting harmful or dangerous media environments.
The next step in brand safety is here — and this time, you get to call the shots.
Nandini Jammi is co-founder of Check My Ads.
Nandini has been immersed in the world of brand safety & digital advertising since 2016, when she began running Sleeping Giants, the social media campaign that alerted advertisers that their ads were funding hate speech on Breitbart News.
Her efforts led to her being recognized by Business Insider as one of the industry leaders “fixing” digital advertising. DigiDay named her a DigiDay Changemaker. In 2019, Sleeping Giants won a Gold Cannes Lion Award for Best Social Media Campaign and a People’s Voice for Public Service and Activism Webby Award.
At Check My Ads, Nandini turns her social media experience into proactive strategies for brands.
Prior to entering brand safety, she worked as Head of Growth and Content Marketing Lead for tech startups in London and Berlin.
Nandini is originally from the Washington, D.C. area and graduated from University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business with a degree in Marketing.
“The excuse that ‘this is just how programmatic works’ is less frequently used after several years of campaigning. It has taken marketers to hold the world of marketing to account.”
