Programmatic Digital Out-of-Home (prDOOH) is one of the latest breakthroughs in the performance marketing field. One-to-many digital advertising now has a way to measurably breach the divide between in home and out of home advertising in an optimisable and targetable fashion.
The first jump in Out-Of-Home (OOH) technology was from print to screens, which gave advertisers more flexibility as they no longer had to wait for the next print cycle to start or end a campaign. Digital OOH added more freedom, but it still required negotiation with private parties, lengthy setup times, and a fixed pre-booking setup that may or may not be effective. prDOOH, on the other hand, brings even more flexibility. It uses programmatic technology to automate the buying, selling, and delivery of out-of-home advertising on digital billboards and signage. This allows advertisers to expose consumers to ads that they're most likely to be interested in, at the right time and location.
This technology not only enables larger companies to run more efficient campaigns, using their vast creative resources to produce creatives for multiple scenarios, but it also allows small and medium-sized businesses to enter the market, as budgets can be flexible to manage campaigns at varying scales. They can use this one-to-many resource to reach potential new customers while running on a flexible budget.
With this power does come risks, which a comprehensive launch strategy will avert. Helping to avoid a very expensive ‘scattergun’ approach, Merkle’s international growth consultancy team can provide go-to-market strategy and opportunity, complemented by expertise in international localisation. A consultation with the team will act as a conduit to realise current market position, insights, and suggestions for where to expand internationally (to optimise product reach), and a website audit of the health of a company’s current online presence. These services aim to develop market maturity while expanding reach in an efficient manner.
Quantifiable data allowing for a continuous cycle of improved campaign efficiency.
prDOOH is the natural progression in OOH's evolution, and its data-driven nature provides the grounds for a recurring cycle of improvement. Here are the stages of the improvement life cycle:
Programmatic advertising enables companies to scale their campaigns internationally. However, successful market expansion requires expertise and strategic planning.
