Digital Out-of-Home Advertising and Integrated Marketing

Out-of-home (OOH) advertising (those billboards and bus stop signs you see every day) might seem outdated in our digital age, but don’t be fooled! OOH advertising is experiencing a renaissance. Modern digital out-of-home advertising (DOOH) helps businesses bridge the physical and digital realms and can be integrated with broader digital marketing campaigns.  

This increasingly popular tool combines location, creativity, and digital wizardry. 

The Enduring Power of OOH Advertising 

Benefits of out-of-home advertising: 

  • Massive Reach: Digital billboards & displays, mobile billboards and point-of-sale advertising put your brand in front of a broad audience. This reaches people on the go who might not be actively consuming digital media on their devices. 
  • Location Targeting: Target specific demographics by placing ads in areas frequented by your ideal customer. Imagine placing gym ads near fitness centers or promoting restaurants near office buildings. 
  • Brand Building: Bold, creative DOOH placements can leave a lasting impression. This builds brand awareness and recognition. 
  • Complements Broader Digital Marketing: Strategic use of QR codes is a powerful tool to drive consumers to your website or social media pages. 

What is DOOH Advertising? 

Traditional OOH has gotten a tech upgrade. DOOH uses electronic displays to showcase dynamic content. This opens doors for: 

  • Programmatic Out-of-Home Advertising: This is similar to online ad buying. It allows you to target specific demographics and locations in real time based on factors like weather, time of day or traffic conditions. Imagine your coffee shop ad appearing on a digital billboard near a bus stop on a chilly morning commute. 
  • QR Code Integration: Those scannable squares you see on ads literally link the physical and virtual worlds. Scan a QR code with a smartphone camera to be directed to a website, landing page or social media profile. This promotes instant engagement. 

Considerations for QR Codes in DOOH Advertising 

QR codes are a powerful tool, but only if they function flawlessly. Here are some technical hurdles to consider when using QR codes in various types of out-of-home advertising: 

  • Resolution: A blurry or pixelated QR code can be frustrating. Ensure your code is high-resolution and clear in all lighting conditions. 
  • Graphic Design: Don’t crowd the code! Leave a clear safety zone around the code for proper scanning. 
  • Link Testing: Double-check then triple-check! Make sure the QR code links to the intended destination and that the link is active. 
  • Wi-Fi Dependence: Some QR codes require a data connection to work. Consider your target audience and location. Will there be reliable internet access?
