The return of out of home advertising

As lock-down across the UK begins to ease, competition for out of home advertising space is predicted to increase.

Out and about

As the government advice encourages more car, bike and pedestrian travel (to avoid public transport), roadside out of home platforms are expected to see an increase in footfall.

Roadside traffic is already up to 64% of pre-lock-down levels.

“When others go quiet, your voice gets louder”. 

Ensuring your brand is top of mind will be key to success as people emerge from lock-down, as well as long-term growth. 

Growing or maintaining share of voice remains a good strategy to deliver market share. By being present when your competitors are not, you can increase brand prominence.

Trying something new

During the lock-down, consumers are developing new habits, learning new behaviours and trialling new brands. Reasons for this include; movement restrictions, logistics, availability or because of how the brand is helping communities.

A recent survey highlighted that 67% of people have bought a new brand solely because of the way it has acted during the crisis.

Out of home is 72% more likely to increase brand consideration.
