According to Ocean Neuroscience, “consumers are 48% more likely to click on a mobile ad after being exposed to the same ad on an Out Of Home (OOH) ad first.”
When you combine your mobile, search or social media campaign with OOH media, the exposure to the OOH ad leads to more clicks, activations and better marketing ROI in digital media and mobile.
The findings by Ocean Neuroscience of a direct correlation between OOH ad exposure and mobile campaign uplift resonates very well with our own conclusions. Our latest hybrid OOH-mobile case studies prove that posters have a significant impact on the digital campaign performance, but importantly, not evenly across all of the poster sites. This is because most outdoor campaigns are bought based on ‘network package media buy’ or using simple footfall numbers.
This conventional OOH planning method is about to be disrupted as we see a trend by brands that want to buy specific poster locations based only on the footfall of their target customer group. We also see a trend of advertisers being insistent that the poster campaign performance be measured and that the value of unique location targeting be quantified. These challenging requirements reflect the targeting and measurement that advertisers have become used to in digital marketing, and now demand across traditional media, and they are challenges Locomizer has the solution for.
Locomizer have built a platform that maps the density of people with specific interests and profiles at particular locations and at specific times. Using our tool, we discover and match audiences on the OOH map with the brands desired target market. If you compared the output with a density map of home addresses for existing customers, whilst you would expect some correlation, the exciting thing is that Locomizer tells you where people spend their time, and not where they live which is a crucial differentiator that makes our data more valuable. The affinity data can be then fed into the third-party OOH media-buying platforms, which could then use affinity scores by location and time instead of footfall to choose poster and electronic signage locations.
Locomizer intelligently discovers OOH sites with the most receptive mobile advertising audiences. But how can this be measured? Mobile, search or social digital campaigns provide an excellent opportunity to use campaign metrics like CTRs, conversions, searches and website visits by location as an impact measure of the posters. Using such measurement proved that all of the posters have a significant impact on the performance, but that the posters bought using Locomizer targeting performed more than 100% better than those bought using a traditional buying strategy.
Our post-campaign analysis confirms that the mobile metrics significantly increase in the proximity of locomized posters and then gradually decrease with the distance.
We now recommend that our customers take advantage of hybrid OOH campaigns because running Locomizer data for outdoor and mobile ads at the same time delivers significantly increased ROI for advertisers.
