CAMPAIGN PROCESS‚Äč

1 - Campaign Planning and Strategy

Planning and strategising is the first step in the PDOOH advertising media buying process. This is where our media buyers will develop an advertising media plan. The media plan will address your target audience across different media publishers to maximise return on investment against your marketing objectives. Killer content marketing should be developed that will convert users.

2- Bidding and negotiating

The second step is bidding and negotiating. The media buying agency creates a plan to select channels/media, negotiate rates with publishers or ad networks (or both) and secure ad space.

3- Campaign Management

Before going live, we deploy pixels to begin data collection. A small test is performed to confirm that the data is being collected correctly and that no data discrepancies exist. Campaigns are set live and submitted to the ad exchanges.

4- Measuring Sales & Results

The fourth step is measuring results, which is key to any successful media buying campaign. Through programmatic technology, real-time campaign data is available, giving transparency to campaign metrics such as click-through rates (CTRs), viewability, reach, impressions, conversion rates, leads generated and sales revenue, including ROAS. Available via our in-house data-rich analytics suite. 

5- Refining the plan

The fifth step is refining the plan. Historical data from the ad campaign will fuel insights to adjust buying decisions and improve machine learning.
