Intro

2020 has brought many changes not just to businesses and the economy – but furthermore to so many people’s lifestyles and working routines. And in turn, to many companies’ budgets, priorities and activities.

So here’s what we have here – Wrapify sells OOH campaigns to brands – most of these professional ads appearing on the vehicles of everyday drivers in the gig economy, creating The Wrapify Driver Network nationwide in the US.

We surveyed our driver network of over 280,000 and asked them questions about their experiences, and what brands they would choose to drive and advertise for while they are making money doing so.

Here’s what they said:

If you could choose to always have your car wrapped in Wrapify’s professional advertisements for brands, would you?

What gig-economy platforms do you either currently participate in or plan to on a regular basis?

What brands do you most want to advertise for, if you could choose?

What types of gig-economy services are you most interested in?

In addition to our driver network, according to the OAAA (the OOH industry’s thought-leader):

A recent survey by the Out of Home Advertising Association of America (OAAA) conducted by OnDevice Research found that 62 percent of vacationers are planning a road trip, a whopping 72 percent increase from last summer.

The OAAA also says that people are starting to leave their homes, as well as making plans to very soon.

The top planned activities are:
– Time with family friends (36%)
– Dining out (35%)
– Visiting a beach/lake (34%)
– Shopping (30%)
– Recreational activities (28%)
– Sightseeing (27%)

Finishing out 2020 and into 2021, how is your brand prepared to reach these people with their marketing and advertising?

Wrapify solves for hyper-targeting with out-of-home advertising ads and turns them into high-converting retargeting ads with full attribution reporting.

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.

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.
