Benefits of DOOH within a B2B Context

  • 1

    Increased flexibility: these ads can be easily updated, modified, or replaced via the DSP anytime, allowing for more agile campaigns that adapt to real-time changes in market condition or planned creative swaps.

  • 2

    Enhanced targeting: Programmatic DOOH enables advertisers to utilize data-driven targeting techniques such as geofencing to ensure their ads reach the most relevant audience.

  • 3

    Dynamic content: Digital screens allow for rich media formats, interactive content, and even live updates, making the ads more engaging and memorable than traditional OOH formats.

  • 4

    Improved measurement and analytics: It provides more accurate tracking and reporting of ad performance, allowing marketers to make data-driven decisions and optimize current and future campaigns for better results.

  • 5

    Mobile advertising: The ability to sequentially retarget users who have passed the targeted list of screens. Therefore increasing frequency against multiple channel touch points.

  • 6

    It’s effective: Nielsen found that 33% of advertisers looked up an advertiser after seeing a DOOH ad.

Digital Out of Home Event Advertising

Trade shows present an unparalleled opportunity for B2B brands to engage with their target audiences. These events enable businesses to showcase their solutions directly to a concentrated group of industry professionals. One of the significant advantages here is the utilization of DOOH event advertising. This powerful tool allows businesses to extend their reach beyond their physical booth, capturing the attention of decision-makers in and around the event in a more unforgettable way.

Strategic placement of digital out of home ads near trade show venues, around the hotels accommodating decision makers, and even along the main transport routes to the event can offer a range of benefits. By employing this approach, B2B brands can heighten awareness, spark interest, and drive foot traffic towards their exhibits.

You can still use DOOH if your organization is not exhibiting at a trade show: a little growth hacking technique is to steal some share of voice from audiences who are attending trade shows that, for whateverreason, your company preferred not to attend, but still wanted to generate/maintain some awareness at.

As for the budget, it’s generally recommended to allocate around $5,000-20,000. However, this can vary depending on the event’s location, duration, and the specific goals of the campaign. In summary, DOOH event advertising presents a unique avenue for maximizing reach and impact during trade shows, making it an invaluable tool in a B2B brand’s marketing arsenal.

What Strategies Can I Adopt at A Tradeshow

  • 1

    Pre-event promotion: Build anticipation for your brand and booth by running targeted ads in the vicinity of the trade show in the days leading up to the event. This can help create buzz and ensure that your brand is top-of-mind for attendees.

  • 2

    On-site branding: Utilize DOOH screens at the trade show venue to reinforce your brand message, showcase your product offerings, and guide visitors to your booth. This can help you stand out from the competition and create a lasting impression.

  • 3

    Engaging content: Leverage the dynamic nature of digital out of home ads to display captivating content such as product demonstrations, customer testimonials, or real-time social media feeds. This can engage passersby and encourage them to learn more about your brand.

  • 4

    Post-event follow-up: Keep the momentum going by using mobile ads, of all those mobile devices which attended the geo ring fence of the venue itself during the exhibit live dates.

Engaging B2B Buyers During Their Daily Commute

Picture this: you’re a B2B decision-maker, navigating your way through the early morning hustle of a bustling train station or airport terminal. Amid the flurry of movement and noise, something stands out – a striking ad specifically designed to resonate with professionals like you. In this moment of commuting chaos, the message effortlessly arrests your attention and leaves an indelible impression.

As the day progresses, you find the ad’s message echoed on your mobile app, subtly coaxing you into action. Intrigued, you click the ad, which transports you to a well-curated landing page. Your curiosity piqued, you delve into the content presented, further immersing yourself into the world of the brand.

Subsequently, you’re retargeted with a native ad and a desktop video that add depth to the initial message. Unable to resist the compelling narrative woven across these platforms, you click through and download a white paper. Before you know it, you’ve transformed from a casual viewer into a Marketing Qualified Lead (MQL), primed and ready to journey further down the sales funnel.

Such is the captivating power of targeted DOOH advertising, transforming mundane commutes into strategic touchpoints for engaging potential B2B buyers.
