Deploys PSA on OOH Static+ Rideshare Topper, Wrapify to Match Donations 

San Diego, CA — June 22, 2020 — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig economy, today announced a new campaign in support of equal civil rights and the San Diego NAACP chapter. With current events highlighting systemic racism around the country and calling for change, Wrapify hopes to use the OOH Static+ Rideshare Topper product as a means to promote the humanitarian message that black lives matter, with the first fleet of cars taking to San Diego’s streets on 18, June 2020. 

As such, Wrapify will use its extensive network of gig economy drivers to feature the message “Silence Is Not An Option” in an effort to promote positive change. They will donate all campaign profits to the local San Diego NAACP chapter as well as send users from the physical retargeting ads to their site. Additionally, should brands join the campaign, Wrapify will also donate the profits from these additional Static+ Rideshare Toppers to spread wider awareness.  

“In a season where the NAACP is asking everyone to be bolder than they’ve ever been to bring about change, Wrapify is showing leadership and getting the message out that change has to come and it starts with you,” said NAACP San Diego branch President Ms. Francine Maxwell.

Wrapify hopes to raise awareness of the current humanitarian crisis and recent deaths of black lives from police through the “Silence Is Not An Option” campaign, while supporting the local San Diego community. Wrapify’s Static+ Rideshare Topper is poised to hyper-target any region a brand or agency would choose, reaching nearly every neighborhood or desired city. 

“Silence is compliance, and given recent and past events, it’s more important than ever to band together as people — and companies — to spread the right messages,” said co-founder and CEO James Heller. “Being socially responsible and socially active is imperative to our company values, and we hope it is for others as well during this time.” 

Wrapify has already signed on its initial fleet of cars. To join the campaign and support racial equality , please visit wrapify.com or email equality@wrapify.com.

In an effort to further support the gig-economy during these unprecedented times, Wrapify is working with its brand partners to put even more cash into the pockets of Americans in need by launching the Delivery Drives Relief” Campaign.  

Rideshare use has dropped 70% since the onset of the social distancing measures related to COVID-19*. But many of these drivers have since transitioned to delivery.  Leveraging delivery services like DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats not only allows for social distancing, it keeps local restaurants, grocers and other local businesses open and able to pay their employees who depend on the income. 

Wrapify is teaming up with its brand partners to launch an 8-week campaign on 1,900 gig-work/delivery vehicles nationwide, including some of the hardest-hit markets** such as Las Vegas, Savannah, GA, and Atlantic City, NJ, to name a few. 

To ensure each brand partner will have an equal share of voice by participating in this campaign, Wrapify will rotate the brands through each of the 10 logo areas on these “Wrapified” vehicles. 

All profits from the Delivery Drives Relief Campaign will go directly into the pockets of participating delivery drivers, in addition to the driver’s earnings that they would normally receive by driving with Wrapify –an estimated $2 million

Brands have the opportunity to put their dollars to work in an effort to stimulate the American economy and more specifically, the working class, all while using social distancing measures to help “flatten the curve”. 

Brands not only benefit from the Out-of-home (OOH) measurement and exposure, they also benefit from Wrapify’s retargeting capabilities to other digital channels including Connected TV (CTV), Mobile and Display retargeting.

As 2020 is now well underway, we notice that increasingly more everyday people are signing up to work in the gig economy. Everything from food delivery with Postmates, alcohol delivery from Saucy, groceries from Amazon Fresh, and of course, rideshare driving from Lyft and Uber. 

At the same time in our ad-spend landscape, OOH (out-of-home) advertising is finding itself in a large resurgence – just ask Nielsen about how wrapped vehicles are the most noticeable moving OOH ads and look at the allocation of marketing spend of brands and their agencies in the recent months. 

Some drivers are finding ways to make this or a combination of these options their full-time jobs, and others whenever they decide to make time for it. Even with those part-time “gigsters”, they may even still have a regular workday commute as well. This means these people are amongst the most frequent drivers of anybody on the road.

Starting with professional vehicle wraps back in 2015, Wrapify has also launched its brand new product, The Static+ Rideshare Topper.  Wrapify’s rideshare offering has the largest geographic footprint, able to serve brands nationwide. 

Wrapify, providing OOH advertising for some of the world’s biggest brands like Pepsi, The MLB, AT&T, and General Mills, has been growing its robust network of certified drivers throughout the entire US since 2015. This network contains about 280,000 and counting heading into 2020. With up to 40% of them being rideshare drivers, brands are jumping at the opportunity to advertise on these cars and all cars through Wrapify to maximize their reach and spend for OOH advertising. 

What’s more, is that with Wrapify you get a precise measurement of impressions, digital attribution and multi-channel retargeting ads after devices nearby are exposed. Dead are the days of “estimated impressions” based on trends or historical data. This attribution allows brands to see where the actions or results of user activity another step past simply measuring an impression. 

Wrapify just took an OOH ad and made it digital, the ad that keeps on advertising and retargeting.

The “ridetop” or “rideshare topper” industry is exploding more than ever after continuous growth, with a reputation of billions of dollars in spending on taxi tops for instance. The spending on advertisements on these is even more in densely populated areas like New York City and San Francisco. Now, any brand can select any US market, and deploy their ads on top of cars easily through Wrapify.

San Diego, CA — January 8, 2020

Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig economy, today announced the launch of the Static+ Rideshare Topper for targeted advertising campaigns. The Static+ Rideshare Topper is a proprietary product and nationally-scalable medium that utilizes Wrapify’s unique Attribution Suite and Physical Retargeting capabilities, allowing brands to place advertisements on top of the modern-day taxi, including Uber and Lyft rideshare vehicles.

“Taxi top advertising in New York is a $30 million industry, and in the last few years, many companies have failed to enter the market to replicate this success,” said James Heller, CEO and co-founder of Wrapify. “Now, with our Static+ Rideshare Topper, we are paving the way for more organizations to capitalize on this effective form of advertising. Over the last five years, we’ve built a strong operational network that has allowed us to construct this smart product at scale, allowing access for more organizations to utilize this effective form of advertising. As the largest rideshare specific platform, we’ve designed the Static+ Rideshare Topper to not only serve brands, agencies and publishers, but to also create a new opportunity for rideshare drivers to monetize their time on the road by earning money for miles they are already driving each day.”

Rideshare Topper

Contributing to the consistent growth of the out-of-home (OOH) industry, brands have successfully leveraged Wrapify’s technology to physically retarget audiences and attribute OOH spend through online conversions, in-app activity and actual foot-traffic. According to Nielsen’s 2019 OOH Advertising Study, transit advertising is one of the most noticeable OOH advertising mediums. As rideshare advertising continues to manifest into a highly utilized and effective segment of OOH advertising, brands, agencies and publishers can now leverage Wrapify’s Static+ Rideshare Topper at a price point feasible for campaign deployment at a national level. 

“This is a logical evolution of an age-old media product,” said Kathi Moore, vice president, branding and communications at CheapOair. “Wrapify’s attribution and retargeting features, paired with the ability to scale this on rideshare vehicles nationwide makes this a huge win for travel brands like CheapOair.”

“Taxi-top advertising is a core line item in many brand’s OOH media plans, especially in top DMAs. This is a technological leap in measurement and attribution and an obvious iteration of the format,” said Brian Rappaport CEO at QUAN Media Group.

Wrapify has a nationwide network of verified drivers using the app and certified installers supporting brand campaigns. With the growing number of credible rideshare drivers in the gig-economy, and advertising opportunities, as a result, Wrapify is one of the first to capitalize on this expanding segment in the market with the Static+ Rideshare Topper, rendering their Attribution Suite and retargeting offerings available to pair with it.

Political Candidates Use Wrapify’s Digital Platform Powered by the Gig Economy to Share Powerful Messages and Put Cash Back into the Pockets of the People

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig economy, has announced it will deploy its wrapped vehicles on the 2020 election trail beginning November 2019 in New Hampshire, featuring political candidates’ campaigns on cars throughout the state. Wrapify is the only ad platform in U.S. history that provides widespread visibility and delivers measurable results for political candidates while boosting jobs for the American population. Political candidate Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente is the first to capitalize on Wrapify’s unique, one-of-a-kind digital marketing platform.

In 2020, brands will continue to focus more of their overall out-of-home display budgets toward digital out-of-home (DOOH), and DOOH will be more integrated with digital buys than ever before. Last year, DOOH accounted for 37.3% of the total global OOH ad spend, according to estimates from WARC. The same report predicts that DOOH will grow 10.1% each year between 2018 and 2021.

2020 candidates are already searching for strategic outlets beyond traditional channels to market themselves and reach constituents in a more differentiated, personal and trackable way. Wrapify presents a new opportunity for political candidates to allocate campaign budgets to creatively reach voters and share their message throughout the voter journey with moments for influence, action and support.

“We work with brands, advertisers and marketers looking for new and powerful ways to reach hyper-targeted audiences — so working with political candidates is a natural fit for Wrapify,” said James Heller, CEO, and co-founder of Wrapify. “Beyond that, everyday drivers are able to monetize their trips by placing advertisements on their vehicles, which puts money back into the pockets of the people while promoting for any campaign. Wrapify is excited to work with Rocky to promote his political campaign in a creative way to connect with the community, launching first here in New Hampshire.”

Wrapify is available to anybody that drives and is looking to make extra money for their everyday commute or routes. Existing gig economy workers such as Lyft, Uber, GrubHub and Postmates drivers are also able to leverage Wrapify’s platform to earn more by monetizing their typical routines and routes.

SMARTBRIEF – Nov. 13

The out-of-home advertising industry is buzzing about digital out-of-home. Last year, DOOH accounted for 37.3% of the total global OOH ad spend, according to estimates from WARC. The same report predicts that DOOH will grow 10.1% each year between 2018 and 2021.

But, DOOH isn’t necessarily better, or even more technically advanced than “traditional” OOH. Some static OOH channels are powered by as much, if not more, technology than digital ones. Buyers need to understand the pros and cons of each format and be aware of common misconceptions plaguing the space.

Creative and viewability factors

The chief appeal of OOH is that it is effective — and an alternative, or supplement, to the crowded world of online advertising. This benefit holds whether the creative is digital or static, with both options having pros and cons.

Since digital OOH channels rotate ads from multiple brands on a single digital billboard, publishers can serve more impressions. This is part of the reason publishers are keen to convert static placements to LCD or LED screens: they can sell more advertising. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t any benefits for marketers. Nothing needs to be printed or manually placed, so creative lead times are short. The more advanced DOOH advertisers create dynamic ad experiences, leveraging familiar digital capabilities like weather triggering and dayparting. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) increased brand awareness for its allergy medicine, Piri, by using digital signage to share real-time pollen counts. Better yet, the campaign only went live when pollen counts passed a certain threshold.

One downside, though, is that DOOH advertisers share physical space with other companies and miss out on impressions. With static OOH, companies have 100% viewability and ownership. Static placements are often easier to read and of higher visual quality than many digital images. You can’t create dynamic creative, but you can still ignite online or offline action with compelling copy and visuals. To create an immersive experience and tell a sequential story, advertisers can purchase a series of static placements that reflect their audience’s travel patterns. For example, to raise awareness and increased app use, a delivery service used posters on New York City subways. In one week, the campaign generated 1.1M earned impressions on social and, ultimately, drove a 10% increase in app use…
