Master the mobile. DOOH and mobile technologies are revolutionizing the industry and changing everything. Location-based mobile marketing allows morphing the digital outdoor ad industry into an unstoppable advertising force: this is the best way to boost sales, increase brand recognition, and drive your ROI high. Recent research proves that mobile click-through rates increase by up to 15% when supported by out-of-home. Mobile display ads present the amazing opportunity to deliver your ads within proximity of digital billboards or displays; this enables brands to convey unbelievably precisely targeted messages. A recent case OOH + mobile case study for a video game marketer has shown a 127% traffic increase and proximity targeting for a fitness brand resulted in a whopping 260% boost in rates.
Master the FMDOOH. The dynamic DOOH is your best bet when mastering the art of digital-out-of-home. Dynamic digital signage shows constant steady growth within the DOOH industry, full-motion DOOH offers creative dynamic visuals that are a safe bet for any digital marketing strategy. FMDOOH is highly effective because it is literally impossible to ignore. To miss the message being delivered with a full-motion video on a high definition display the screen needs to be physically blocked, in any other case – the message will reach the audience.

You can master anything! But, please, don’t. Don’t try to do everything yourself, it’s impractical, time-consuming and needlessly costly. Especially when it comes to visual content: there isn’t a way to run an effective DOOH campaign with poor quality designs, stock photos, and, the absolute worst – bad digital signage software.
