The Outernet Marketing Innovation Group holds Webinar session to discuss the need for a common OOH currency.

The Outernet Marketing Innovation Group (OMIG), made up of regional brands that are running various types of pilot campaigns powered by Moving Walls’ automation and location media technologies, held an online session to discuss the need of a common Outernet currency.

The Outernet Marketing Innovation Group (OMIG), made up of 28 regional brands that are running various types of pilot campaigns powered by Moving Walls’ automation and location media technologies, held an online session to discuss the need of a common Outernet currency from the industry and advertiser standpoints. The session drew the participation of industry bodies -- Association of Advertising & Marketing Singapore (AAMS), the Media Specialists Association of the Philippines (MSAP), regional marketers and agency representatives.

Outernet Media in a Cookie-Less World

The session kicked off with Chloe Neo, COO, Omnicom Media Group & 1st Vice President from AAMS, sharing her thoughts on how advertisers can navigate and cut through the noise in a cookie-less world, with location data being described as the new "cookie" in the real world.

"Location data breaches the gap between the digital and physical world. We need a more universal currency to measure marketing effectiveness as well as return on investment across the different formats that we are seeing, especially the digital front where we have the opportunity,” she said.

Chloe also commented on how location data can be used for tracking patterns and trends related to human movement, support risk management like how it was used to manage the Covid-19 situation in Singapore, and also streamlining services and operations. Increased social media usage also contributed to huge sources of data to enrich consumer insights. By converging all these social and location data sources, advertisers have a more holistic view that bridges the gap between the digital and physical world.

Memo Moreno, Managing Partner of Mindshare Philippines & representative of MSAP, chimed in with her thoughts that OOH is highly fragmented and also highly political. There is no robust measurement for OOH actual deliveries. MSAP as an industry is working towards a single screen currency to enable omnichannel video planning.

“The Outernet is a good initiative to have from a digital lens as it brings a robust measurement and accountability,“ said Memo.

As the discussion deepened, most of the participants agreed through a live poll session that - Automation, Transparency and Accountability - are the biggest drivers for adoption of a common currency in Outernet.



Moving Forward: Advertisers Views

Jimmy Piong, Managing Director of Kotra Pharma shared his views that it is getting more and more complex to make ad spend decisions, with advancement in advertising technology and new Outernet formats. The ultimate goal is to reach the consumer in the most efficient way possible and a common verified OOH currency will go a long way to enable this.

Ravi Shankar, Chief Growth and Platform Officer, AirAsia highlighted that viewable impressions came out of nowhere during the early days of programmatic buying and marketers simply had to accept what they were getting at the time. He agreed that now is the time for us to move towards common OOH metrics and start ingesting them into Customer Data Platforms (CDPs). He also stressed that without a standard metric in OOH, SMEs won’t be so experimental with their limited budgets.

JP Bautista, Business Director, PHD Media - agency representative of Wipro commented on a recent campaign they did with Moving Walls, and how they are able to engage specific interest, occupation, and demographic-based audiences segments via the Outernet. With the improved measurement capability of DOOH, they are able to dive deeper and have more visibility on the types of consumers that have responded and interacted with their ads. They are also then able to extend their reach of the existing campaign by re-targeting them through their mobile devices and thereby driving activations.

Jaikishin Chhaproo, Head of Media and PR of ITC- PCPB, commented that most active advertisers on digital have their own benchmarks regarding Cost-per-Mille (CPM). The seamless integration of screens and the ability to monitor and measure the media view is going to be very advantageous to the OOH medium, enabling Cost-per-Measure (CPMs) to be managed very conveniently.

Finally, Industry Standards was The Most Interesting Topic OMIG Members wanted to discuss during the next Session with a more in-depth view of available OOH measurement methodologies and case studies to be shared.
