Although over the last decade the digital marketing channels have become the quickest and most innovative way to advertise, the effectiveness of the internet ads is decreasing. This drop is due to multiple factors. The excessive push on SEO marketing, the oversaturation of messages to catch the online users’ attention, the lack of trust of the consumer to social ads and the opportunities presented by the new trends such as the dynamic announcements, the mobile billboards in LED trucks and other interactive formats offered by the DOOH.
OOH allows advertisers reach their target in any situation because it intercepts the consumer wherever he is.
