OOH Today has summarized the article for your convenience.
1 – Software & automation are increasing efficiency and effectiveness. By mid-2018, five major outdoor owners will have their own automation software integration.
2 – Data is being used for greater targeting & measurement precision. In general, the utilization of data by the OOH industry is driving the shift from targeting as many people as possible to targeting as many members of specific audiences as possible.
3 – Mobile will be even more integrated as a data source and campaign vehicle. Advertisers are building on this strength using cross-channel campaigns that span OOH placements and mobile ads, often tied to specific locations. The near-universal presence of smartphones is opening the door for tracking and measurement data.
4 – DOOH will continue to grow as a major force in OOH. That increased presence also comes with a much larger diversity of media options, from posters to billboards to transit to bus shelters.
5 – Localization, contextual messages and utility placements are on the rise. By adjusting the message to display differently at different times depending on the context, a brand is capable of relating directly to the viewer on an experiential level, driving better metrics.
2018 is positioned to be a great year for OOH. Make sure you’re positioned to take advantage of it.
