10 Ways to Promote Home Improvement Solutions with OOH

Posted by Rainbow Kirby on Mar 14, 2019 4:13:20 PM

Besides warmer weather and lighter skies, spring brings tax refunds helping to cushion the expense of improvements, and with an improved housing market, the remodeling and home-repair industry is expected to gain steam. Home improvement retail sales in the United States reached $394.6 billion in 2018, while homeowner expenditures on improvements and repairs rose 5.3 percent to approach $340 billion.

Owners will spend more on home upgrades, replacements and routine maintenance as remodeling activity continues to be encouraged by rising home values and tightening for-sale inventory.

Here are ten tactics to effectively use OOH to attract consumer attention and drive sales in the home improvement and services category:

Billboards Encourage Voter Action

Posted by Rainbow Kirby on Nov 2, 2018 11:30:00 AM

Regardless of issue, affiliation, party, candidate or zip code, only one thing will make a difference on November 6th: Showing up. Of the myriad challenges political candidates face today—delivering campaign messages to their voters, getting new voters to the polls, standing out against their opponents—what they need most is for their constituents to move beyond social media posts and dinnertime debate and to VOTE.

Billboards deliver by building brand awareness, driving action with no interruptions, reaching voters by district, demographics and behavior and by being omnipresent. While  political campaigns have traditionally placed their buys on television, many are becoming more savvy in their planning and using out-of-home strategically, including Vote.org, which placed their messaging on more than 2,500 billboards in nine states, including Florida, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Football Creative: Using OOH to Reach NFL Fans on the Move

Posted by Rainbow Kirby on Oct 11, 2018 3:00:00 PM

With unusually warm weather lingering across the country, the only thing making it feel like fall again − is football season!  Tailgating, trash-talking, high-fiving, Super Bowl-predicting fans dominate the chatter at the office, on social and in our very own kitchens, Thursday thru Monday. Ok, it's ALL THE TIME...up until the Big Game in Atlanta this February.

While you may think of NFL fans as glued to the screen, they're on the move:

  • 59% are more likely to have a daily commute of 30+ minutes
  • 52% are more likely to travel 500+ miles a week, and
  • 124% are more likely to take 3+ personal vacations a year (maybe they're checking off that stadium bucket list one by one?)

With 256 regular season games and over 17 million fans heading to stadiums each season, there is huge upside for advertisers to align themselves with game day. Whether your brand's focus is local or more of a national play, out-of-home is an unskippable medium that reaches consumers en route to the game, those picking up eats for their own turf, and those reliving every blissful touchdown during their drive the next morning.
