Leverage Out-of-Home (OOH) to Boost Lower Funnel Metrics

Out-of-home (OOH) advertising has long been a cornerstone of marketing strategies, offering brands the opportunity to reach audiences in high-traffic locations and create impactful impressions. In recent years, however, advancements in technology have transformed the way we measure the effectiveness of OOH campaigns, particularly in driving lower funnel metrics such as website visits, app downloads, and in-store visits. 

In this blog post, let’s explore how OOH advertising can influence these key metrics and how platforms like StreetMetrics are helping media operators and advertisers quantify this impact.

Understanding Lower Funnel Metrics

Lower funnel metrics refer to actions taken by consumers that indicate a higher level of engagement and intent to purchase. These metrics are often the ultimate goals of marketing campaigns, as they directly contribute to revenue generation and business growth. Some key lower funnel metrics include:

  • Website Visits: The number of visits to a brand's website or landing page.
  • App Downloads: The installation of a brand's mobile application by users.
  • In-Store Visits: Physical visits to a brand's brick-and-mortar locations.

The Influence of OOH Advertising on Lower Funnel Metrics

While OOH advertising has traditionally been seen as a tool for brand awareness, its impact extends far beyond just creating impressions. OOH campaigns have the power to drive consumers to take action, whether it's visiting a website, downloading an app, or visiting a store. Here's how:

  1. Location-Based Targeting: OOH ads can be strategically placed in proximity to specific locations such as stores, events, or landmarks, prompting nearby consumers to take action.
  1. Creative Messaging: Compelling and creative messaging on OOH ads can drive curiosity and encourage viewers to learn more about a brand by visiting its website or downloading its app.
  1. Integrated Campaigns: When integrated with digital and social media campaigns, OOH advertising can reinforce messaging and drive consumers further down the purchase funnel, leading to increased website visits, app downloads, and in-store visits.
