How to connect out-of-home to your mobile advertising



Marissa Bernstein

Mobile is a natural companion to digital out-of-home advertising — both reach on-the-go consumers with contextually relevant messaging as they move throughout the day. Pairing DOOH and mobile allows you to build on your established connections and create additional touchpoints with target individuals who are highly likely to have already seen your ads.

While DOOH ads allow you to reach your audience more broadly at scale, wherever they are in the physical world, mobile advertising delivers a more personal, one-to-one connection. Adding mobile to your DOOH campaigns is a great way to deliver a sequential touch point with your targeted consumers — serving up a more deliberate call-to-action, thus driving them further down the purchase funnel.



Creative ways to advertise

Combining mobile with programmatic DOOH is the perfect match, offering invaluable benefits to marketers. Let’s take a closer look at how marrying these advertising channels makes for an ultra effective duo.


Sequential messaging

Keep the conversation going with your target audience using sequential messaging — first driving top of mind awareness and consideration with DOOH, then following up on mobile with a continuation of your creative or specific call-to-action. For instance, if you’re a D2C brand, you may leverage outdoor media to spread the word about a special promotion, then activate mobile ads to share a promotion code or drive consumers directly to your website.

Proximity & POI targeting

Activate your campaign only where it counts, by targeting your audience within the proximity of your out-of-home (OOH) campaign. Geofencing the locations that matters most — whether that’s your store locations, competitive locations, or key retailers — you can re-engage your audience surrounding these POIs on their mobile devices. This innovative approach is great for brands looking to steal market share or drive in-store purchases from consumers who are nearby.


Device ID passback

Through Vistar’s device ID passback offering, we can identify the device IDs exposed to your DOOH campaign and pass them back to you for further retargeting. Vistar’s technology platform identifies exposed consumers — based on when and where the OOH ad was shown and device proximity at the time — and works with a leading industry onboarding provider, to anonymize them for safe utilization. Using the anonymized IDs, brands have the ability to retarget consumers exposed to your DOOH campaign across the channels of your choice, including mobile, display, CTV, social, audio, etc. This is a great way to bring OOH into your multi channel marketing mix, seamlessly tying your presence in the physical world to your overarching digital strategy.


Client success stories

Programmatic DOOH and mobile go hand in hand, and we have a plethora of client success stories to prove it. Vistar has executed countless campaigns combining these two channels, and the results across KPIs are often stronger when DOOH and mobile are combined.
