Digital out-of-home (DOOH) is one of the fastest-growing advertising channels available right now. And according to a report by Allied Market Research, the global value of the DOOH market is projected to reach over $8,393.30 million by 2023. This represents growth of 12.6% from 2017. Considering these statistics, it is worth examining how you can derive the most value from your own DOOH campaigns.
Technology driving increased ROI in the digital signage space
With the rapid technological advancements taking place, it’s becoming easier and easier to implement optimized, high-ROI DOOH campaigns. AI is one of the major forces behind these advancements, enabling companies to develop sophisticated audience measurement tools that help advertisers engage their audiences more effectively.
Here are 3 examples of how you can use AI-powered analytics to enhance your DOOH campaigns:
- Use face analysis software to know who your audience is and gather real-time audience data
By installing cameras near your digital signs, and linking them to these types of software programs, you can determine:
- How many people viewed your ads in a given period
- Which ads received the most views
- How much time people spent looking at your ads
- Which ads were better at retaining your audience’s attention
- The age and gender of the people viewing your ads
With this data at your disposal, you will be able to make informed decisions about what type of ad content to display and when to display it, which will lead to a more engaged audience and a higher ROI.
- Integrate your analytics software with your CMS
While it’s great to have a wealth of audience data to work with, you also need a practical way to use it. By integrating your audience analytics tool with your CMS, you will be able to use your audience insights to help you deliver relevant content to your audience with ease.
- Display dynamic, tailored content to your audience in real-time
Once you have your face analysis software up and running, and you’ve integrated it with your CMS, you can go one step further in reaching your audience successfully.
You can use the real-time insights that you gain from the software, combined with the CMS integration, to display dynamic content that is tailored to the person or people viewing your digital displays at a specific point in time.
This a great option to explore in quieter environments, such as doctor’s reception areas, where you have a small number of people viewing the display at a time. In busier areas, such as shopping malls, where hundreds of people may see your display in a matter of minutes, it may be better to use aggregated data when deciding what type of content to display.
