OOH’s Top 10 Spenders in Philadelphia
WSFS Bank, TD Bank, and NerdWallet
Top OOH Spenders By DMA: Philadelphia
GeekOUT Fast Fact Friday
by Anthony (A.J.) Cioffi,
The Geopath team recently released two OOH spending reports with data sourced from Kantar, covering second quarter spending, as well as a report covering spend from January-June. Both reports are available to our members via the GeekOut Library.
For today’s Fast Fact Friday, we are continuing our series examining the top OOH spenders in DMAs across the country. This week, let’s head out to the fourth largest DMA in the country; Philadelphia. We will not only look at which advertisers and industries are spending within the market, but also highlight any changes from the first to second quarter.
According to Geopath Insights, there are 18,550 roadside and place-based units measured by Geopath in the market, so it will be interesting to understand which brands are utilizing OOH to reach their audiences in ‘City of Brotherly Love’ and surrounding areas. With that said, let’s take a look at who is spending in the market!
From January until the end of March, the top spenders were mainly from the Government, Insurance, and Communications sectors. Additionally, the Financial industry was also represented, with Barclays holding the only position on the list from this sector.
With the onset of travel restrictions and other COVID-19 implications, OOH spending in the second quarter changed. Although some of the top OOH advertisers from the first quarter are still spending, other brands have emerged on the list of top spenders. See below for the top ten spenders in the DMA for the months of April through June.
During the second quarter, it is interesting to note Barclays is no longer the only institution from the financial sector that holds a position on the list. From April to June, WSFS Bank, TD Bank, and NerdWallet all made leaps onto the list. In fact, WSFS Bank not only spent enough to appear on the list, but take the third top spender position for the market in this quarter!
In terms of other new arrivals, DuckDuckGo.com, the search engine that emphasizes user privacy, also spent considerably in Q2, moving onto the eighth spot on the top OOH spender list.
Although Verizon continued to hold the first position, many of the other companies switched spots. Geico jumped up from the eighth spot to the second, and the Pennsylvania State Lottery dropped a spot down to the fifth position. For the Media industry, Comcast moved ahead to the seventh spot, while Fox fell off the list from the previous quarter. Additionally, the US Census Bureau did not make the cut in Q2, and Blue Cross & Blue Shield continued to hold the sixth spot in both quarters.
With Q3 data becoming available in the coming weeks, it will be very interesting to see which of these companies will maintain their top spots! As we continue our Fast Fact series analyzing the top spenders in each market, make sure to check back here, as we will be sure to keep everyone updated.
