Adgile Media Group, an OOH advertising startup that aims to solve for physical-world attribution, has just raised $5 million in seed funding to bring precise data to OOH advertising and convert last-mile delivery trucks into mobile billboards for brands nationwide.
The location intelligence and geofencing marketing software company Reveal Mobile launched a self-service out of home measurement platform this morning. The platform delivers insights for “traditional, digital, place-based, programmatic, and moving OOH ad campaigns,” according to the company.
According to a new survey from OneScreen.ai, the majority of marketers are actively looking for alternatives to paid social in 2022, and 67% believe their digital returns have diminished, even after scaling up programs.
A new partnership between the shopper intelligence provider Catalina and the data provider PlaceIQ could have a major impact on the way multi-location brands run optimized OOH campaigns in the coming years.
When it comes to out-of-home advertising, one creative strategy does not fit all markets. That has been a guiding principle at KEVANI, an OOH firm that’s taking a community-driven approach to digital billboard advertising. The company specializes in full motion digital and premium static assets in California, with the understanding that national advertisers see the greatest results when they embrace the personalities of the neighborhoods where their displays are located.
OOH may appear to be the antithesis of the efficiency- and measurement-obsessed norms of the digital advertising era: one-to-many and not easily attributable. But the channel is evolving, becoming easier to measure and to strategize around thanks to technical breakthroughs.
Brands can re-plan their media mix and use intelligent out-of-home to deliver on the same goals that they used CTV, and frankly all digital for: brand awareness, engagement, and response. Here are some tips for marketers rethinking their media plans amid the return to the great outdoors.
Brand loyalty is changing, and it might not necessarily be for the worst. Despite dire predictions earlier in the pandemic that consumers would be more likely to opt for alternative brands, a new survey by the location intelligence firm Ubimo paints a very different picture.
In this episode of Location Weekly, the Location-Based Marketing Association covers Hallmark printing custom messages in cards and mailing them out, Moving Walls tying OOH to local targeted offers, Nexyad and HERE teaming up for next-gen vehicle safety service, and U-Blox launching its PointPerfect location service.
With consumers set for a summer of supercharged spending, advertisers are looking to digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising to push their brands in front of people enjoying their newfound freedom out of the house.

After a year spending a great deal of time at home and on screens, people want to get outside—making digital out-of-home (DOOH) a huge opportunity this year.
Brands will use this unusual Super Bowl to give their 2021 OOH ad strategy a test run. But they’ll also face challenges unprecedented for Super Bowl marketers.
While this year’s advertising headlines were dominated with the doom and gloom of cookie and IDFA elimination, those critical industry-defining decisions will be pushed off, as marketers want to return to normalcy just as badly as consumers do.
While food delivery platforms like Postmates, DoorDash, and GrubHub have all launched no-contact options, they generally rely on human drivers leaving food on the ground outside people’s front doors. With the health risks and potential for mix-ups, it’s less than ideal.
A better solution might be the one being rolled out by Wrapify. Just this morning, the company announched the launch of a first-of-its-kind campaign that could take autonomous bot delivery to the next level.
Now is the time for marketers who have spent the past six months on the sidelines, interpreting the signals buried in data and gathering learnings, to put their messages back out where consumers are active and engaged – increasingly, outside the home. As more digital screens become available, brands and businesses need to keep in mind the particularly timely benefits of digital out-of-home (DOOH) as a way to effectively and efficiently deploy their market spend in our “new normal.”
Some OOH media providers have already moved beyond the traditional real estate-based approach in which advertisers focus on a specific region or even choose specific billboard locations. Instead, they are using data and technology to target specific audiences and measure the impact of their campaigns. For the laggards, the pandemic is proving a catalyst for overdue change. Let’s consider why OOH’s audience-based future is closer than ever as well as what is next for the industry’s evolution.
Brands today are spending valuable time assessing and understanding the environments in which they exist and the communities they impact. I expect that more brands will turn to OOH as we move closer to the election; it is a one-of-a-kind medium that provides a safe platform to share messaging while fostering conversations and shaping a local environment.
Most importantly, the tangible IRL impact of OOH provides a level of authenticity that amplifies voice and connects with people as they safely enjoy some much-needed time outside of their homes.
With consumer behavior changing quickly, and so much about the future in flux, retailers are working harder to get a complete understanding of their shoppers as they go about their journeys between the digital and physical worlds, says Ubimo Co-Founder Ran Ben-Yair. Strategies specifically designed to target high-intent shoppers are moving into the forefront, as large retail brands come to terms with the unprecedented challenges of this new reality.
