According to the calendar it's officially fall, even though the kids are still wearing shorts to school, the air conditioning is cranking into the night and sweat is dripping from your brow. Despite these oddities, it must be October because football flags are flying high and Instagram is flush with proud apple-pickers and those adventurous others sporting lederhosen while drinking from steins. Welcome to Oktoberfest! To see how outdoor creatives are embracing the season, check out what we're loving in out-of-home.
All they do is WIN, WIN, WIN. Of course, we're referring to the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. Throughout their journey in the 2019 World Cup, powerful imagery of the team clad in bright red jerseys with stoic poses and strong statements displayed prominently on the outdoor canvas. As they continued to knock out competitor after competitor, the vision of their strong legs gliding across the turf, connecting with their teammates and shooting past the goalie will stay with their fans forever. Check out the inspiring out-of-home creative that has recorded history this summer, and more head-turning campaigns that will make your world go upside down.
Visually striking, vinyl-wrapped outdoor displays, Premiere Panels are informative, engaging and effective. They deliver reach, scale and frequency similar to bulletins, combined with the street level impact of transit shelters. According to a recent Nielsen Poster Study, 55% of those surveyed said when they noticed a directional Premiere Panel they changed their plans and visited the business advertised, and 60% said they are a good way to learn about sales, events and new businesses in the area. And they're memorable—those exposed 11+ times had an average ad recall of 55%.
Here are 5 reasons to add Premiere Panels to your media mix:
In a city commonly referred to as Cowboys' Country and inside a state whose slogan starts with “Everything’s bigger…”, the Dallas Mavericks knew they had to GO BIG to standout in the Dallas/Fort Worth market. Heading into the 2018-2019 season, they had a clear mission: To excite, inspire and unite communities through entertainment, service and memorable experiences, creating Mavs Fans for Life.
If you’ve ever attended a Dallas Mavericks game, you've seen firsthand how the entertainment inside the arena spans far beyond the basketball played on court. Each and every game is uniquely memorable for those in attendance with immersive experiences scattered throughout the entire stadium. But this year’s mission was to unite “communities,” and not just the fans inside the building. So, how did Clear Channel combine the Mavs' experiential marketing initiatives with their dominant OOH presence outside of the stadium?
The out-of-home creatives we work with are blessed with an enormous canvas to display their vision, influence opinion, drive purchase and inspire hundreds of thousands of consumers that pass their billboards every day. There's power in outdoor, and the OBIES honor the best of the best each year. Here's a preview, but first—what are the OBIES?
We're really, really pumped about the billboards we've spotted heating up the landscape across the country this spring. Naturally we love great outdoor creative, and we must confess we also love—the brooding, dark-haired, steely-eyed, "he's dead...he's not dead," never a zombie, always a hero—Jon Snow. Game of Thrones may be airing its final season, but their billboards will be forever immortalized.
Add the legend of Ron Burgundy, the fierce determination of Captain Marvel and the aerial wonders of Dumbo, and the spring batch of outdoor campaigns are scoring high with consumers. See these displays and more of What We're Loving for your OOH cultural check:
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:
After the decorations and holiday lights were finally stowed...(wait, you don't still have your lights up, do you?), we hope you've caught up on your "To (Binge) Watch" list. It's about time you found out what all those people on YouTube walking around blindfolded with birds on their shoulders, walking into walls are doing—and what they've been watching. And then there are your neighbors tossing boxes out front, proclaiming "This doesn't bring me joy!" What's going on? Here's a hint, check out these displays in Times Square and more of What We're Loving for your OOH cultural check:
It's the most wonderful time of the year...there are bright lights, snowmen and reindeer everywhere you turn, and billboards providing entertainment and seasonal cheer for frenzied commuters and last-minute shoppers on the go, go go.
For some, the thought of stowing the Halloween decorations and going full-on 'Santa and snowflakes mode' is just too much. They need more transition time. Don't fret, the terror isn't gone yet − we're sharing some of our scarier fall campaigns, and Mr. Grinch himself for those cringing at holiday music (too soon, too soon)!
There's nothing we love more than the creative geniuses that display their art on our billboards across the country. Check them out in these unskippable campaigns.
