Ad dollars spent in out-of-home (OOH) advertising, which includes digital signage found in motor vehicle offices, “positively impact purchase behavior,” according to Jim Spaeth of RealityMine, who conducted a recent study.
The report determined…
- “Consumers… rarely leave home without their trusted mobile devices. OOH’s reach, interactive capabilities, and captivating messaging move the consumer to reach for their mobile devices to learn more about a brand (product or service).”*
- OOH is more likely to reach consumers in the hour leading up to mobile activities (including email, apps, online shopping & more), outperforming TV, Radio and Print.
- Four out of ten respondents indicated they were exposed to an OOH message one hour prior to engaging in their mobile online shopping action.

The report concludes…
- “OOH is often the first step on the path to purchase … (and) … can secure shopper engagement with an effective hand-off … to mobile.”

The analysis of the study was based on data from nearly 2,000 smartphone users. Data was captured via the eDiary app in half-hour increments over 10 days and tracked details such as location, mode of transport, activity, social setting, media exposure, purchase behavior, and emotional context.
