lo in the roku channel and co cast peacock for that matter but vastly different for a service that has for years been focused on interruption free subscription based binding the company is real

do this and this is like take seventy five so here's mark bodman oh m yeah and with the recent prime video campaign for hit series the boys the super hero drama that shows the slightly darker side of being gifted with the powers of flight and see through walls prime video t v series the boys is breaking the fourth wall with a creative installation from i p g rufus billy media and fantom bill stickers the unmissable out of home campaign promoting the launch the series is third season is brought to life with an activated billboard featuring ke actor carl urban shooting laser beams out of

experience prime video billy media and rufus understood how to harness the scale and power of the fantom bill stickers network giving them the freedom to bring this to life and everyone involved with the project has been extremely proud of its success that coming from curson lowery fantoms director ben pool co founder billy media says this execution was a true show case of the power of outdoor advertising it has been the centerpiece of the boys outdoor campaign in auckland and it's grabbed the attention of mutters generated a huge amount of buzz online and ultimately got people talking about the new season of the show the boys execution is a great example of the opportunity that exists within this real world channel to stand out while also creating a unique ability to live in the outline world says pool rohan prasad co founder of billy media says seeing the interest from the public that the site generates and the sharing of it on social med has been amazing there is so much untapped potential in the creative outdoor space and billy media is raring to champion this medium to marketers while the idea of adds that don't look like is native to the out of home advertising industry it is not native for the internet which makes this next piece out of forbes very interesting when applied to the context of our business out of forbes three big advantages of native advertising native adds are adds that don't look like adds they're typically found at the bottom of a news page and today this modern marketing strategy is b looked at as a blue ocean opportunity businesses are beginning to discover its power large small regional small mom and pop to big national international brands and you've definitely seen these types of ads they look like articles but they're actually paid adds the first advantage of native advertising is that it doesn't disrupt a users content experience neither just out of home the most distinctive feature that puts native adds at the our front is that they don't disrupt the user for instance you tube ads still use the same tactic as t v in the sixties when you're watching a certain video and add pops up you're forced to watch it turn away close your eyes go make sandwich in case and in any case you're disrupted from your viewing experience second advantage is that native adds aren't dependent on consistently changing algorithms most companies advertise on big social platforms facebook youtube instagram but many are getting more disappointed than ever these platforms are losing slack by being inconsistent changing up algorithms often and increasing add prices and in an ad platforms in onsistent makes planning ahead of time very difficult because of that businesses are more likely to leave the platform since it might weaken the scaling process is an opportunity for out of home we don't interrupt anybody's content experience we don't depend on any sort of algorithm their signs on sticks in the ground they gave ourselves like the native a platform that we are really starts to draw parity between aline platforms such as native advertising online the third advantage according to forbes is the ability to scale if you've run bigger campaigns in the past especially on facebook you might have noticed that cost to acquire a customer increases as you spend more so when you're trying to scale a facebook campaign to aggressively a winning campaign can turn into a losing one very fast quite rankly the c p will explode and every price increase that you experience ultimately makes it unprofitable and challenging to continue doing that on top of that popular add platform such as facebook or instac only makes space dfor a certain number of adds to be displayed to keep up with the best user experience so this means if there's more demand during busy time such as black friday or christmas that add space gets tighter and at some point scaling becomes impossible no matter how much you have in budget and that's really the beauty of out of home there are no limitations on how much share of voice you can buy except for your budget when you can out of home on a cost per thousand impression basis there are very few online tactics native advertising included that can even come close so what does it all mean we need to start thinking about out of home as a native add platform because we really start to unlock the power of our channel for the same reasons that digital markers online love native adds except ours are way bigger just as determined targeted based on real world behavior versus outline platforms that guests at behaviors and demographic psychographics and we're significantly more engaging as we've heard earlier from the co of hoichi as demonstrated by the amazing offline camp pains carried out by online platforms and that's your ter shet for june seventeenth two thousand twenty two make sure to subscribe or follow wherever you're getting this information and
