In 2017, OOH Will Do Well and Do Good – Nancy Fletcher OAAA President and CEO

Out of home (OOH) advertising “has the ability to really drive clever copy home that other media can’t always do as well.”

This well-spoken premise – offered by the chief marketing officer of Spotify – supports my bullish predictions for the New Year.

In 2017, OOH will outperform growth in overall advertising and the GDP (gross domestic product) because:

  • Advertisers covet audiences outside the home
  • OOH is renowned for its ability to build brands
  • OOH connects the physical world to the digital world, amplifying other media
  • OOH media owners are investing in the future and leading from the front
  • Automation makes OOH easier to plan and buy, Geopath improves measurement
  • Government will be more of a partner and less an impediment

“Ultimately,” says media analyst Omar Akhtar, “you have...

Nancy Fletcher’s 25-Year Perspective

Real Progress . . . The Best is Yet to Come

Twenty-five years ago, I signed a contract to lead OAAA (October 1991). A few months later, my husband and I moved our family from Minnesota to Washington, DC.

Thinking back on a quarter century, I’ve assembled a list of 25 highlights in 25 years (scroll down for full list). From then till now, working together, we’ve made real progress:

  • Advertising revenue reports used to put our medium in the “other” category, if it was mentioned at all. Now OAAA is a central source for OOH revenue reporting (and is cited by The New York Times and other reputable press outlets.)
  • We used to avoid the press (or run). Now we embrace the press, ready to tell our story. The New York Times just published an article...

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.

Outdoor Ads Drove Traffic to Digital

By . Published on .

Last fall the Outdoor Advertising Association of America won attention during Advertising Week with a set of very effective out-of-home ads for, well, out-of home ads. With billboard trucks attacking ad fraud online and precisely-placed signs targeting individual ad buyers by name, the campaign drove traffic to FeelTheReal.org, demonstrating the power of its own medium and simultaneously sowing doubt about betting everything on digital.

Now, with digital advertising and ad fraud each setting new records, the OAAA is building on its case with a white paper detailing what happened after the Advertising Week campaign.

More than 27,000 unique visitors came to FeelTheReal.org from Sept...

Billboard Advertising Stands Tall

By Jeanne Landau: Business2Community

In today’s ongoing war of traditional versus digital advertising, one medium that is far too often overlooked is out of home (OOH) advertising i.e. billboards. Seen as superfluous at best (and obsolete at worst), billboards do not appear to have a real dog in the advertising fight.

BW-2095

But people should think twice before dismissing billboard advertising because the truth is that billboards are one of THE strongest and most profitable mediums available. In mid-year 2015, Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) released figures demonstrating that OOH advertising revenue increased $1.58 billion (4.7%) in the first quarter of 2015. These numbers parallel a similar growth period in 2014, and mark the 20th consecutive quarter of growth for OOH adv...
