Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) Advertising to Enhance Customer Experience – GEC Business Review

BY CINDY LIM.

Many of us may be familiar with Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising commonly associated with advertising and marketing, as a medium of communication to outreach broader market and thus increasing brand awareness. Static OOH advertisement formats are indeed classical examples which are screened across physical advertising spaces such as billboards, wall posters, bus stations, railways, urban furniture (benches, news racks etc.), taxi wrapped and more. Just as technology and consumer behaviour have been evolving in unpredictable ways since then, Digital Out-of-Home advertising (DOOH) format has been introduced to create a more personalized and entertaining customer experience especially for the techy customers who are indulged in electronic devices as well as brand managers who are constantly searching better ways to raise brand awareness. According to PQ Media, it suggests DOOH has two major platforms – Digital Place-based Networks (DPN) which deploys screen network to display video and real-time messaging; and Digital Billboards & Signage (DBB), refers to creatively designed layouts shown at a specific location.

For instance, in Australia, few state-of-the-art NFC (Near Field Communications) enabled digital billboards have been installed strategically in airports across Australia including Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to promote Google Play store, allowing travelers to select, interact with content, pay and download apps directly onto their phones. Such Google’s NFC campaign encouraged more mobile phone users to fully optimize the use of NFC triggered location or scan a QR codes for recruiting more users to download Google Play store. As a result, it allows passengers to download books, music, movies and more before boarding planes.

Despite high cost is required to acquire DOOH advance technology, here in GECB, we would believe that the NFC-enabled digital billboard is a real life example of how a traditional billboard and technology can work together to foster a closer engagement between brands and consumers, thus enabling them to connect and transact online, instantly.

    Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
