OOH marketing funnel

Once your audience is aware of your brand, the next step is to ensure that they will consider buying your brand at some point in the future. Since purchase decisions are primarily influenced by emotions, at this stage, it''s all about appealing to consumers’ needs and values, and connecting emotionally.

New research has found that consideration strongly correlates with trust. Building trust is therefore essential to brands who want to move customers down the funnel towards purchasing. 81% of people say that trust is a deciding factor in their buying decision*.

OOH drives consideration

OOH is one of the most impactful media channels for brand consideration, also working effectively alongside other media to boost consideration scores, particularly TV and social. As a regulated and very public medium which is seen by many, OOH is proven to help create strong associations of trust, a key trait that today''s consumers are demanding from brands. Dynamic OOH campaigns that are highly relevant to the moment (e.g. weather, location, time of day) are also proven to boost an audience’s emotional response even further.
