News Media Use OOH to Boost Readership

Newspapers and magazines have seen a decline in readership and revenue over the last decade. As they strive to retain readers by rebranding and offering online options, they are turning to OOH advertising to spread the word.

New York-based publisher Hearst launched an OOH campaign for the September issues of four of its core fashion titles: Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, and Town & Country. The “We Are Fashion” campaign will run for six weeks, starting today and will include New York-centric billboards, airport signs, cinemas, taxi tops, retail displays, and video and signage in news kiosks. Signs show the four covers of the aforementioned magazines, and the one-minute video takes viewers behind the scenes of the shoots found in the September issues.

How The Richards Group found a winning creative recipe

Stan Richards, founder and creative director of ad agency The Richards Group, was sitting in a routine staff meeting in 1994 when he learned his agency won the Chick-fil-A account. He didn’t find out in an email. No phone call came in breaking the good news. Instead, David Salyers—then vp of national and regional marketing at Chick-fil-A—ventured from Atlanta to the agency’s Dallas headquarters on a whim.

Salyers arrived, unannounced, and boldly walked into the meeting. He stopped whatever conversation was taking place and shook Richards’ hand. “We want you to be our new agency,” he said with a smile.

In that moment, Salyers made a promise to Richards that the agency said still rings true today: “We will never be...

A Look Ahead to the Second Half of 2016

Nancy Fletcher
President & CEO, OAAA

It’s hard to believe summer is already here and 2016 is nearly half over. This year has again started successfully for OOH, with Q1 rounding out the 24th consecutive quarter of revenue growth. Morale was high at the industry’s annual gathering in Boca Raton, FL, in April, new services to help OAAA members have been launched, and Nielsen research was released to support the effectiveness of OOH advertising.

As we look ahead to the second half of the year, OAAA remains focused on top industry issues and trends, incorporating member feedback received and lessons learned so far this year. I’ve updated my earlier calendar summary to highlight important events and resources OAAA will offer over the next several months.
