OOH in Cohoot
—Agency Family Tree
Cohoot is the anonymous forum for media salespeople. Hundreds of sellers gather on Cohoot’s dedicated OOH channel to share inside info about advertisers and agencies.
We’ve surfaced some of Cohoot’s best OOH insights from this past week here…
“In-housing” – the giant killer?
Cohoot sellers began crowdsourcing the perceived threat level of ‘in-housing’ to large agencies this week. Some felt the threat wasn’t urgent. Others surmised small and boutique agencies to be the real threat to the big agency model. One thought-provoker suggested that the rise of programmatic tech could play a role by increasing the ease of moving in-house. Full Thread Here>>>

An independent billboard operator wondered how to best get audience data for their billboards. Our operator asked the crowd if a GeoPath audit was worth it. From a seller’s perspective, the answer comes down to location and competition. If you’re selling to local buyers with no big vendor competition then audience data probably isn’t needed. If you’re going up against big vendor competition for larger RFPs, then it’s probably time to invest in an audit. Full Thread Here>>>
