Smart Outdoor Billboards Snatch Data From Passers-By

Trend Summary: 'Smart' Billboards are lifting outdoor data-collection to a higher plane via innovative sensors, cameras and microphones.


According to the patent filed by Yahoo, the billboards could collect biometric data on passers-by, determining whether the audience corresponds to a target demographic. The billboards could also ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2016]

... collect mobile device data or images to identify specific individuals in the target audience, while also indentifying specific vehicles and/or drivers.

Moreover, microphones could collect conversations revealing audience reaction to the ads, while proximity sensors show how close people get to the billboards and  eye-tracking sensors determine whether passers-by are looking at the ads and for how long.

At the same time image recognition techniques and mobile data could be used to create a more accurately focused profile of the audience.

Commented New York Senator Charles Schumer earlier this year: "They have huge amounts of information on you. "Who knows what they could use it for? It’s something straight out of a scary movie."

McKinsey Forecasts Sag in Global Adspend Growth

Trend Summary: Media spending worldwide is forecast to rise at a compound annual rate of 5.1% over the next five years.


According to a report released today by multinational management consulting firm McKinsey, global spending on media is forecast to rise at a compound annual rate of 5.1% during the next five years reaching ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2016 - Q4 2019]

... $2.1 trillion in 2019.

However, this growth actually reflects a general slowdown, according to McKinsey's study of consumer and adspending data in every global media and entertainment sector.

The report predicts that digital advertising, video games and broadband will continue to be the fastest-growing segments over the next five years, with projected compound annual increases of 12.7%, 8.1% and 7.8% respectively through to 2019.

Spending on cinema will expand at a projected 5.4% compound annual growth rate, followed by TV advertising at 5.0%.

McKinsey also posits that while today’s stronger segments will continue to be strong over the next five years, they will probably grow more slowly.

Outdoor Digital Advertising in UK Gets Smarter

Trend Summary: Out-of-home advertising in the UK has registered huge growth in 2015, prompting a rise in spend in the channel.


According to ad trade magazine Marketing Week, the evolution of out-of-home [OOH] advertising is set to continue throughout 2016, with the introduction of automated buying via a 10-digit code that enables automated trading of digital billboards between ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2015 onward]

... media agencies and site owners.

According to the UK's marketing body for the industry, Outsmart (previously known as the Outdoor Media Centre) the 10-digit code allocator, named 'Space', will reduce the number of human input hours formerly devoted to OOH ad trading and planning.

Says Alan Brydon, Outsmart's ceo: “Instead of humans having to do hours [of work], machines can talk to each other and do the same work more quickly”.  

“In any business, if you can get the functional stuff out of the way, your talented people can spend more time doing what is important – having good ideas and working with customers to get better solutions.”

Another innovation announced this month is from Ocean Outdoor, which is gearing up to launch another trading system, The Loop Live, in 2016. This enables brands to buy OOH advertising by the number of ‘impacts’. Advertisers will be able to decide on the audience, time and locations and, using that data, Ocean’s system will optimise the campaign across screens.

The Outsmart system will be rolled-out to twenty double-sided digital screens in twelve locations in Birmingham's city centre, providing full-motion, real-time ad placements. They are also fitted with cameras and NFC [Near Field Communication] technology. The trading system will also be available for other Ocean Outdoor sites known as The Grid, which consists of eight digital screens in six cities.

US Outdoor Media On Digital Growth Curve

Trend Summary: Q4 earnings by outdoor advertisers furnish further evidence that marketers continue to invest in billboards, transit ads and digital signs.


While traditional media in the USA are experiencing a decline in ad revenues as consumers increasingly spend more time on digital platforms, out-of-home media has been largely resilient thanks to its much-vaunted ability to reach mass audiences who can’t skip the ads. Another key factor driving this trend is the conversion of many billboards to ... 

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2015 onward]

... digital displays.

Outfront Media, formerly known as CBS Outdoor, reports that its billboard business in the US has returned to growth, edging up 0.3% in the year's third quarter, thanks to stronger demand from national and local advertisers, as well as improved results in key markets such as New York and Los Angeles.

The company’s US organic revenue rose 2.8%, driven by nearly 9% growth in its transit business. However, international organic revenue was down 0.3% for the period.

According to Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings chief financial officer Rich Bressler: “We think this is particularly relevant for national advertisers as they think about getting the highest return on their advertising spending”.

Continues Bressler: “This is an important time period for national advertisers as they think about their 2016 budget allocation, and as we believe that our team is driving meaningful progress with large national partners, that should position us well for next year”.

Google Moves Into Billboard Advertising in UK

Trend Summary: Google is running proof of concept tests in the UK, trialling ads on digital billboards via its DoubleClick advertising platform.


The tests, running in several markets in the UK, rely on data such as local weather, travel information and sporting events to determine which ads to serve. However, targeting passersby with digital out-of-home is more complicated than ads running on the internet. For example, if it's a cold day the ads may serve up information on ....

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2015 onward]

... a warm soup or beverage, although the system doesn't rely on local search data.

However, although the ads can't target specific individuals, the system is likely to rely on aggregated data from local searches via mobile devices and desktops to trigger the ads.

According to one report, the billboards might rely on wireless signals from mobile devices which activate targeted ads. However, if the passing audience isn't the right one to receive a specific ad, the technology then opts not to serve that ad. 

A Google spokesman denies, however, that the system relies on search data: "The trial doesn't currently rely on data from wireless signals", insisting that "this is just an experiment with some media agencies in the UK. No product is currently in development".

Show Biz and Fashion to Meld Music and Sport With 'Internet of Things'

Trend Summary: One of the world's largest entertainment companies plans to harness the Internet of Things to connect its performers and brands with fans.


WME/IMG, an American talent agency with offices in Beverly Hills, has announced a joint venture with Swiss tech company AGT International that will pave the way for a social platform that enables performers at concerts, fashion shows and sporting events to view in real time what's working and ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2015 onward]

... what's not.

The partnership could have big potential for brands and sponsors who want to build apps for engaging audiences and performers before, during or after an event.

Enthuses AGT International ceo Mati Kochavi: "This exciting new venture is centred on the consumer experience, creating a true social IoT.

WME/IMG, founded in April 2009, after the merger of the William Morris Agency and the Endeavor Agency, represents artists across all media platforms, among them films, TV, music, theatre, digital and publishing. 

Details about the joint venture are still in the works (it won't be rolled out until sometime next year) but the companies envisage brands and sponsors using so-called Deep Web social analytics and platform-agnostic technology to engage with fans and consumers about events.

Hypothetically, this could allow event sports-stadium attendees using a custom app to see which queues for the toilets or concessions are the shortest. It could also allow bands to see where and when in a concert the energy drags. It could enable designers to gauge which fashion lines created most excitement, or an audience to learn how models feel while walking down a runway.

'Big Three' US Marketers Call Media Agency Reviews

Trend Summary: An unprecedented number of the USA's highest spending advertisers are reviewing their accounts with media agencies.


According to a research note issued Friday by investment bank Morgan Stanley, an eye-watering $26bn in adspend is currently up for grabs. A number of major advertising media accounts are under review by such FMCG giants as Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Johnson & Johnson. In aggregate the review represents ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q2 2015 onward]

... the highest number of media-spend dollars hanging in the balance since 2012.

The Morgan Stanley analysis notes that only $700m of the billings currently at stake goes to agencies — an amount the banker deems “unnerving but surmountable.”

According to the report, the majority of advertising dollars shelled-out by marketers go to media owners, while only a meagre 3% is spent on agency fees and commissions.

There are several reasons why marketers are re-evaluating their agencies right now, among them a desire to reduce costs - often by slashing agency fees or consolidating the number of agency partners with whom marketers work. Another key factor in agency cutbacks is clients' drive to adapt to an evolving digital landscape.

There is also the perennial and thorny issue as to the transparency of agencies’ practices and compensation, particularly concerns about alleged rebates from media owners. However, Morgan Stanley doubts that this issue is a significant driver behind the current raft of media reviews.

Digital Outdoor Ads Set to Go Mainstream

Trend Summary: Digital out of home advertising in the UK has grown exponentially, soaring from minnow to mammoth over the past five years and is now the key to the outdoor industry's future.


According to an article in today's online admag The Drum.com, authored by Andrew Newman, ceo and co-founder of digital ad agency Enigma, media owners are investing substantial sums in a bid to significantly increase their digital outdoor advertising portfolio, thereby generating major new opportunites for ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2015 onward]

... innovation and creativity.

Mr Newman believes that media agencies, creative agencies and brands are starting to recognise digital outdoor opportunities for everything from data-driven dynamic campaigns to date/time sensitive marketing.

In turn, this client/agency recognition triggers extraordinary experiential campaigns via digital billboards.

Enthuses Newman: "It's almost as if a perfect storm has been created to finally empower brands to communicate and broadcast campaigns outdoor with the same level of relevance that has become so commonplace online."

"Yet with all of the signs, momentum and opportunity being created we are still absolutely scraping the surface of what can and will be achieved by DOOH [digital out-of-home] advertising in driving forward the outdoor advertising industry in its battle against TV.

Newman concludes: "Going from £66m in spend in 2008 to £214m in 2013 isn’t bad; but real challenges still remain if DOOH is to become ubiquitous across the industry and be the principal part of the outdoor plan for every brief – not just the ones who want to do something that little bit special."

Unilever Conducts 'Beacons' Technology Trial

Trend Summary: Marketers are boosting sales by retargeting online ads to consumers, basing the ads on items previously examined instore.


In most new store rollouts and pilot schemes, advertisers’ beacons almost always focus on delivering location-based messages to shoppers’ smartphones whilst they are actually shopping instore. However, many of these marketers are stymied as to how and where the technology fits their advertising strategy, a point reflected in ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2015 onward]

... the reluctance of some to commit further resources to the techology. 
 
Interviewed by UK ad-trade magazine The DrumMondelez and Coca-Cola both revealed that they are still testing beacons almost a year after first testing the high-tech tool.
 
As these high-end marketers see it, bombarding shoppers with push notifications as they browse store aisles offers no clear benefits.
 
Moreover few are content to invest their already limited marketing budgets in beacon technology, simply to prove to sceptical retailers that they are willing to innovate in order to secure product display media in-store.
 
For smart marketers the advent of cross-channel marketing is changing how they use beacons to boost targeting, audience segmentation and measurement -- all of which is calculated to make their media buying smarter.

Unilever’s initial efforts to glean offline shopper data for mobile targeting this month exemplifies the role the technology could play. Shoppers who visit a Knorr-branded food truck sampling its latest soup are retargeted with a mobile ad the next time they fire up an app for Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
 
At the time of the Knorr initiative’s launch, a spokesman for Foundry, Unilever’s start-up incubator, which leads the firm's beacons trial, told UK trade daily, The Drum: “We have decided to take a fundamentally different approach to using beacon technology."
 
“Beacons provide a great opportunity to link a consumer’s offline behaviour to an online digital experience. Our approach to piloting this technology is more about understanding our target audience from a branding perspective.”

Location-Based Digital Ads Reach Orbital Velocity

Trend Summary:  The days of advertisers reaching their target audience via TV alone are long gone, a recently conducted study concludes.


The study, conducted jointly by global marketing research firm Nielsen Corporation and America's Association of National Advertisers [ANA], concludes that multiscreen campaigns - ie those reaching a target audience via a plethora of screens - are likely to account for ...

[Estimated timeframe: Q4 2014 - Q4 2016]

... 50% of all US ad budgets by 2016.

The underlying rationale is that screens are now everywhere - in aircraft, offices, cafes, bus stops, storefronts, taxis, elevators ... ad infinitum!

Because audiences are able to view lots of screens in lots of different places, successful campaigns must, of necessity, be ubiquitous.

Moreover, smartphone and tablet screens enable digital placed-based ads to target consumers in appropriate locations.

The rapid rise in marketing via these screens - dubbed digital out of home [DOOH] or digital place-based advertising - comes as no surprise to those following the mushrooming growth of mobile advertising.

These hard facts suggest that digital placed-based advertising is not a phenomenon in itself but a natural extension of any mobile campaign.
