Thanks to Technology and Data, Out-of-Home Advertising Continues to Thrive

Posted by Jennifer Manning on Jan 11, 2018

While TV and print budgets continue to decrease year after year, out-of-home budgets continue to grow with an estimated $29 billion for global out-of-home ad revenue in 2017. It’s projected to reach $33 billion by 2021, reported by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America and MAGNA Intelligence Study. So how is it that the oldest form of advertising is still growing year after year? The answer is technology and data.

As technology advances, we have more data and new ways to use that data in conjunction with our out-of-home (OOH) placements. Digital screens are just about everywhere — in grocery stores, elevators, gyms, bars, taxis, malls — and this list continues to grow. Digital screens allow advertisers to find hard-to-reach audiences where they are and deliver timely messages. Add in the use of beacon technology, object/facial recognition and adaptive creative, we have new ways to use OOH and improve audience interaction. Last year, Land Rover and Public Health England used a variety of technology to execute OOH campaigns utilizing social media, automated texts, facial recognition, adaptive creative and use of dynamic content derived from live, local data.

Olympics TV Ratings Stumble Due to 2016 Consumer Behavior

Posted by Elizabeth Tower on Aug 26, 2016

I am a fan of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, so I am well versed in the art of avoiding spoilers. As technology grows and changes we must adapt – modern day media Darwinism. Unfortunately, for many Olympic viewers, they were not prepared for the growing trend in media coverage – NOTIFICATIONS (Spoil-ylmpics?)! Evil, evil notifications sent to your phone or pushed out on social media by local and national media to take away the joy and surprise of who would be taking home that Olympic gold.
