How We Do It

Step 1

OOH launches, with a minimum of 20%+ coverage.

Step 2

We collect Device IDs in our exposure engine of those exposed to the campaign using our location recording technology within our survey app.

Step 3

We serve those exposed to the OOH with our established brand impact survey.

Step 4

We use that test and a demographically-and behaviourally-matched control group to isolate the KPIs of brand impact.

Key Metrics

We measure brand impact throughout the purchase funnel: from awareness, to consideration to purchase intent

  • We also measure three key dimensions that speak to the power of of out of home: emotional engagement, message resonance, and consumer action
  • By applying campaign buy details to brand impact results we can report on Cost Per Brand Uplift (CPBU), Cost Per Potential Purchaser (CPPP), Return on Brand Impact (ROBI), Total Potential Campaign Return (TPCR): applying a layer of bottom line indicators to brand metric reporting
  • A template survey is used; it includes 15 standard questions and is designed to be taken on any internet enabled device. Clients can have up to 5 additional custom questions.

This enables the true impact of OHH advertising to be isolated.
