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.

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.

Fortune 500 companies use Wrapify to reach target audiences and deliver measurable, actionable analytics, proving out-of-home campaign effectiveness

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig-economy, today shared the early success of the company’s Attribution Suite, which launched in Q1 2018. A first-of-its-kind, the multi-channel ad-technology allows brands to capture, retarget, measure and scale out-of-home (OOH) advertising in order to digitally measure and attribute campaign efficacy and success.

According to eMarketer, OOH advertising is expected to grow faster than most other traditional ad mediums in 2019. As OOH continues to experience rapid growth, Wrapify works with brands to hyper-target locations and demographics via wrapped rideshare vehicles and provide OOH measurement by powerfully retargeting ads to continue reaching a captured audience on digital mediums.

Attribution Suite user, Alaska Airlines, integrated the platform into its media mix, capitalizing on the intersection of OOH and digital to promote specific flight routes and cities. As a result, the company saw significant campaign results including a 20 percent increase in online conversion rates, more than 41 million total OOH impressions and a lift in reach and frequency of the overall OOH and digital advertising in-market.

Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines managing director of marketing and advertising had this to say:

“Wrapify was a great way for us to get unique OOH coverage while also providing the benefits of digital attribution.”

AdExchanger, August 21, 2019 – Major League Baseball team the San Diego Padres is calling out-of-home advertising up to bat.

In the past, the Padres generally avoided OOH advertising, because the team doesn’t have an awareness problem in its local market, said SVP and CMO Wayne Partello.

Although the Padres do buy local radio and TV to drive conversions among more casual fans, over the last few years it’s shifted most of its attention to lower-funnel tactics, primarily digital.

But Partello loves to experiment, and this year he carved out a bit of budget to test Wrapify, a San Diego-based startup that pays drivers to sheathe their cars in branded vinyl graphics and drive around specific locations.

Partello was wooed in large part by Wrapify’s ability to tie ad exposure to stadium footfall, a perennial challenge for ticket sellers. For example, it’s common practice for one person to buy multiple tickets for a group of friends or family, which is great for filling seats, but less useful from a marketing standpoint, he said.

“We have people coming to games and having a great time, but no way to go back to track how they got there,” Partello said. “Being able to know who comes in contact with our advertising and whether they actually enter the ballpark is huge for us.”
