What is Digital Out of Home and why should it be on your radar?
Digital Out of Home advertising is an interactive strategy. It offers you the ability to create eye-catching campaigns and engage with your audience in a way no other media can. The medium's effectiveness comes from its ability to capture the public’s attention, as well as reach those who are overlooked by traditional media.

Not only that but Digital Out of Home offers the reach of traditional Out of Home advertising but with digital insights.

Measurement is one of the main advantages digital brought to the OOH advertising medium, and with location and time data, advertisers now have the ability to track consumer movement in the real world. Since in-store visitation is a critical KPI for most retailers, DOOH can have a clear impact if integrated strategically into a marketing plan.
