Effective Out-Of-Home Advertising Created During CoVid-19 Pandemic
According to the WFA (World Federation of Advertisers), out-of-home ad spending decreased by 49 percent in the first half of the year 2020 and is already 39 percent lower than projected for the second half. However, as VIOOH's Jean-Christophe Conti points out, OOH is showing indications of regaining its foundation for 2021. (particularly in terms of programmatic). Even during the lockout, advertisers are displaying great levels of innovation, with some off-the-wall commercials.
Here’s a look at some stand-out examples of Out-Of-Home Advertising in the year 2020: 1. Twitter Twitter used 'caution fatigue,' or the apparent lack of motivation to engage in social distancing or proper mask-wearing attempts to combat the spread of the virus, for an OOH advertisement in September 2020. Twitter put a lot of its users' tweets about the matter into billboards that were exhibited in seven US cities, including Florida, Chicago, and Los Angeles, to remind and urge people to wear masks. "So...is 'hey nice mask' the new pick-up line?" one message asked. " and “Why do I feel like everyone’s giving me Resting Mask Face? ” While Twitter is known for passionate and heated debate (especially when it comes to CoVid-19), the campaign was purposefully created to be lighthearted and accessible, while strongly urging us all to do the right thing. 2. Paddy Power Paddy Power isn't typically associated with doing good, but the betting company got behind the "stay at home" campaign in March, urging people to "Give Our NHS Better Odds" and relieve the load on our healthcare system. 3. Outsmart The outdoor advertising sector donated media space to the 'Grateful Britain' campaign in April 2020, which magnified the nation's thanks to the NHS and other frontline workers. The campaign, which was run by Mother London and started by Outsmart, the UK OOH trade body, uses fun and conversational language to emphasize the many and various tasks that have been so important throughout lockdown and beyond. 4. Emily Snacks On day three of the Festival of Marketing 2020, Tom Fishburne (aka The Marketoonist) gave a session about Emily Snacks as a solid example of how to integrate relatable humor into advertising. The brand ingeniously altered an outdoor advertising campaign to mock its original intended launch's poor timing. Fishburne said: “They committed to their first advertising campaign at the end of 2019, planning for an outdoor ad campaign, unfortunately not realizing that it would run in the summer in the UK when everybody was sheltering. Rather than pull the ad or run completely generic advertising, they decided to have a bit of humor about the situation they were in.” Emily’s campaign is also an example of “affiliative humor”, which as Fishburne explained, is when you find empathy in humor through a shared experience, in this case, the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Out-of-Home Advertising Tactics to Reach B2B Audiences
Out-of-home (OOH) advertising is often associated with billboards and street furniture. Although those are viable ad formats, out-of-home advertising provides a wealth of other options and creative possibilities. The medium's capabilities are far more than most marketers understand. B2B advertisers, in particular, would be wise to tap into OOH's creative solutions and think outside the box as they plan their OOH ads.
Simple Ways to Determine If an OOH Campaign Is Effective
We might get so caught up in gathering data, preparing reports, and evaluating data that we forget that there are simpler ways to establish whether an OOH advertising campaign was successful. Consider one of these metrics for your return on investment if you're merely curious about if your campaign has increased sales since it began (ROI).
Calculate OOH Impressions
In the past, OOH impressions were calculated using traffic counts and daily effective circulation to determine the total number of distinct customers within a target population who were exposed to a product or service advertisement, which is known as reach. Daily effective circulation, or DEC, is the measure of traffic that passes by a particular advertisement.
Trends In The OOH Advertising Industry For 2022
Although out-of-home advertising is one of the oldest kinds of advertising, current technological advancements and increased customer awareness necessitates a reevaluation of advertising methods. While traditional OOH models are encountering issues, analysts believe that out-of-home advertising is regaining popularity because people are tired of being bombarded with adverts on their mobile phones.
OOH Generates Strong Recall
Advertisers are more focused on ROI than ever before in today's highly competitive ad market. The ad landscape becomes much more complicated when you consider the growing levels of audience segmentation across various media channels. It's no surprise, then, that OOH, with its vast reach, has received high marks in two recent studies on ad effectiveness.
