On S4M’s latest episode of the S4M Academy Podcast Lab, the team sat down with Gavin Wilson, the chief revenue officer at VIOOH, a planning and trading platform for the programmatic buying and selling of out-of-home advertising, as well as Nico Saraiva, the senior vice-president of strategic partnerships at S4M, to discuss their recent partnership.
The onset of digital out-of-home has shifted what is considered a broadcast medium to a programmatic and dynamic one, merging the benefits of digital planning and measurement with the power of traditional media reach.
The channel is now able to leverage advancing technology and gain better access to more consumer data, allowing digital billboards to provide targeted messaging.
While mobile is a key driver in executing effective drive-to-store advertising campaigns, the importance of having an omnichannel approach has come to the forefront in order to be able to deliver the best possible results for brand clients.
Recent research has shown that a combination of (D)OOH can drive an average 17% uplift in smartphone activations and really encourage consumer engagement.
The conversation touches upon the true benefits of combining these two channels for advertising and drive-to-store, as well as giving insight into where the industry is headed and how with a better understanding of our ad technologies we may expect to see that media can breakout from being planned in silos to shifting to the concept of planning for the outcome first.
