Edge-2-Edge: Premium Ad Format Offerings

In collaboration with Yahoo advertising, VIOOH, the top premium digital out-of-home (DOOH) supply-side platform, published a whitepaper. The paper looks at the possible effects of incorporating programmatic digital out-of-home (prDOOH) into multichannel marketing. Additionally, Twilio Segment Customer Data Platform (CDP) and Yahoo Advertising launched an integration to increase ad reach and relevance without using third-party cookies.

VIOOH – Yahoo Partnership to Explore prDOOH in Marketing Campaigns.
In a recent whitepaper, Yahoo Advertising and the worldwide digital out-of-home (DOOH) supply-side platform VIOOH examined the possible effects of integrating programmatic digital out-of-home (prDOOH) into multi-channel campaigns.
prDOOH whitepaper and case studies analysis
An important requirement from marketers is to comprehend how prDOOH fits inside multi-channel campaigns and how to best quantify its effectiveness, according to VIOOH’s annual State of the Nation report. The join whitepaper examines several case examples to show how advertisers may increase multi-channel campaign impact by leveraging prDOOH. By utilizing the advantages of both broadcast and digital channels, explains how to improve targeting, raise brand awareness, and influence consumer behavior both offline and online to produce a return on investment. Results show that including prDOOH in multichannel media, planning can increase attention, engagement, and overall campaign effectiveness.
According to the report, including prDOOH in a multi-channel media plan boosts the ROI of a digital mix. Due to the priming effect, which DOOH plays a significant role in, conversions during re-engagements on other channels are increased as a result. Additionally, because of its eye-catching qualities and adaptability as a programmatic medium, prDOOH can improve offline outcomes in terms of sales and foot traffic.
prDOOH Case Study Examples
According to a case study in the report, prDOOH can increase foot traffic and sales by attracting attention. Danone Aptamil in the UK saw a 15% boost in sales through prDOOH and a 37% rise when digital channels were added. Similar to this, a campaign with Tourism Tasmania revealed that prDOOH helped lift website visits by an additional 31%, with the whole campaign being responsible for a 51% increase in travel to Tasmania.
Two successful initiatives from Jones Lang LaSalle in Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong as well as Schroders in Singapore are highlighted in the report. To improve online campaigns, both of these blended prDOOH and digital platforms. The findings confirmed the influence of offline priming effect on ROI and showed significantly higher website visitation rates as well as an overall 80% rise in mobile retargeting click-through rates (CTR).

Helen Miall, CMO at VIOOH said,
This whitepaper has been prompted by a significant increase in demand for prDOOH from advertisers, and a desire to understand how it can best be used alongside and within multi-channel campaigns. This report highlights its potential for delivering effective campaigns across upper and lower funnel tactics, and how prDOOH can be successfully combined with individual media to drive campaign effectiveness.

Here’s what they said
Dan Richardson, director, and head of data at Yahoo APAC said,
Data collaboration is essential to allow brands to get the most value from their first-party data. This integration means delivering better advertising experiences to customers and gives advertisers what they want most – greater relevance, reach, and measurement. In a world with fewer online user identifiers, Yahoo ConnectID offers a differentiated and future-proofed approach to all businesses.
Liz Adeniji, regional vice president, of Asia-Pacific and Japan at Twilio Segment, commented
A recent Twilio study found that about 7 in 10 businesses in Asia-Pacific have already turned to using first-party data primarily due to the inadequate visibility over third parties’ data safeguards, management of consent, and regulatory compliance. Our new integration with Yahoo will make it easier for these businesses to use their valuable first-party data in a much more meaningful way, in real-time, and most importantly, with utmost relevance to their intended audience. This will enable them to unleash the potential of first-party data across screens to deliver more personalised and engaging campaigns.
