TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2012 /CNW/ - Recently, Peoplecount conducted a research
study on behalf of ADCentricity Corporation that speaks to the
effectiveness of marketing through location-based digital media.
Peoplecount based the research study on an ADCentricity client in the
insurance industry that ran a national campaign across the US comprised
of both digital signage and "in-store" radio advertisements over a
four-week period. The campaign targeted consumers in doctor's offices,
fitness centers and pharmacies. Towards the end of the advertising
campaign, over four hundred intercept surveys were conducted with the
objective to quantify media notice, brand awareness, advertising
message recall, purchase intent and product usage, campaign influence,
and basic audience demographics.
Key findings of the case study included:
Media Notice - 80% of respondents heard the radio ad, and 50% of respondents noticed
the ad on the digital screen. Only 1% of respondents were not aware of
Recall - DOOH exhibited an exceptional recall of 68% of respondents, with 22%
of those respondents recalling the advertisement unaided.
Purchase Intent & Product Usage - Speaking to the relevance of reaching the correct consumer with
targeted advertising, 56% of respondents had independent insurance at
the time of the survey, and 10% planned on purchasing insurance in the
next twelve months.
Basic Audience Demographics - Of those surveyed, 60% were female and 40% were male. The ages of the
respondents were 26% 18-34, 41% 35-54, and 32% 55+.
Overall the study found that venues with long dwell times, excellent
screen visibility, and captive audience with few other distractions
effectively combine to increase notice and recall.
