Nickelytics’ hyper-targeted campaigns allow you to advertise where your audience lives, works, and plays. Or if you have a brick-and-mortar business, you can advertise nearby to get more feet in the door. But you need to have your ads work strategically for you, so understanding where to advertise is just as important as understanding who you are advertising to.

6. Less Promotional, More Organic: Building Authentic Connections

Finding the perfect balance between promotional and organic content is an art. Savvy customers get a bad feeling when they are being blatantly advertised to.

By presenting your product or service as a solution to their problems, you show you understand them and their needs. Make the customers the focal point of your campaigns. Moreover, create campaigns that help them to feel like an integral part of your brand story and community. By doing so, you can build trust and establish a lasting relationship. And let’s face it; it’s only by knowing and understanding your niche audience that you can speak to their needs. Get to know them and reflect that in your OOH content.

7. Make it Stand Out and Be Memorable: Leaving a Lasting Impression

In a world bombarded with advertisements, your OOH ad must rise above the noise and leave a lasting impression. On average, Americans are exposed to 4,000 to 10,000 ads per day. To stand out, your ad must be memorable, incorporating a unique selling point (USP). It must compels the audience to take action. Take inspiration from Coca-Cola, which identified their selling point as “Refresh the world. Make a difference.” Maximizing the USP in their campaigns created a lasting impact that resonated with their audience.
