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.”

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…

Wrapify continues to lead the digital out-of-home space while staying at the forefront of advertising innovations by elevating ads into measurable and retargetable brand campaigns that boost ROI and earn the highest recall from the most relevant targets.

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 17 — We’re pleased to announce a new partnership with The Trade Desk —  the fastest-growing demand-side platform offering agencies, aggregators, and their advertisers’ best-in-class technology — that augments our platform offering. With Wrapify’s newest iteration of its Physical Retargeting feature, clients can now measure and attribute any out-of-home advertising across Mobile, Display, Connected TV, Native, and Audio Streaming Services.  

Wrapify launched its Attribution Suite in 2018 which included the Physical Retargeting feature, however, it was mostly limited to the Google Display Network for mobile and display advertising to the audience exposed to Wrapify’s high-recall OOH vehicles. Now with the Trade Desk, campaigns are turbocharged with the number of ad types on which a brand can be seen or heard. 

Starting with an OOH ad such as Wrapify’s wrapped vehicles, campaigns are able to capture and expose the mobile devices that they come into contact with. To maximize reach and frequency, Wrapify’s Attribution platform, powered by The Trade Desk, the Physical Retargeting feature provides the ability to retarget those same users offline on all of their other associated devices as well. These other devices can be targeted using Display, Mobile, Native, Connected TV, and Audio Streaming Services. 

With brand advertisers seeing diminishing results from digital advertising alone, there’s a huge need to target customers in a way that makes an impression and drives engagement. Out-of-home advertising does just this. Data giant, Nielsen recently cited that wrapped advertisements on vehicles is the second-most noticed form of outdoor advertising,

The Nielsen study also found that 90% of U.S. residents age 16 or older have noticed out of home advertising format in the past month. So OOH ads are being noticed! And of that 90%, 81% of people who notice the OOH ad engaged with the messaging in some capacity. 

Among many successful use cases, Fortune 500 brands are now measuring the exact impressions, online or in-app actions, foot-traffic and more from their out-of-home ads. Measuring out-of-home has never been done like this until now.
