Singapore – Global media and tech company Yahoo has delivered its first ever digital out-of-home (DOOH) omnichannel campaign for global asset and wealth management company Schroders. This marks the first time both brands have tapped into programmatic DOOH for their omnichannel campaign in Singapore and Southeast Asia.
The campaign, called ‘Beyond Profit’, leverages programmatic DOOH complemented by mobile retargeting capabilities over Yahoo’s omnichannel demand-side platform (DSP) to increase brand awareness, engage the right audiences, and influence consumer behaviors.
The campaign was launched across digital screens in Orchard and the Central Business District (CBD). Leveraging Yahoo’s omnichannel DSP and programmatic tools, the campaign sought to increase exposure and awareness for Schroders’ sustainable investment products and capabilities.
“Programmatic DOOH is shaping the future of OOH, bringing the benefits of digital channels to the traditionally place-based medium and significantly lowering costs and barriers to entry typically associated with OOH media buys. Now, advertisers can combine the high impact of DOOH, in high-footfall locations, into omnichannel campaigns that are agile and scale quickly, reaching their audiences in hyper-targeted ways that seamlessly complement their daily habits,” shared Carol Tay, senior director sales for Southeast Asia at Yahoo.
Tay also added that as people in Singapore venture out and movement patterns evolve, advertisers are looking for the ability to buy across multiple channels, formats, and screens, to reach and connect with the right audiences effectively. She also said that they look forward to working with advertisers on omnichannel, data-driven, hyper-targeted, measurable, and flexible campaigns that leverage the power of DOOH.
Meanwhile, Jerry Low, head of marketing for Southeast Asia at Schroders, commented, “At Schroders, we are always looking for fresh and innovative ways to connect with our audiences as we seek to make an impact through sustainable investing. Working with Yahoo on our first DOOH-led omnichannel campaign has allowed us to connect with our target audience effectively and impactfully – ensuring that they hear our message. The omnichannel campaign from DOOH to mobile provided quality and meaningful connections, through an integrated experience, that was easily scalable for growth.”
The omnichannel campaign utilized mobile retargeting to close the loop and drive click-throughs to Schroders’ website where audiences could find out more about their sustainability products and capabilities. Audiences at 38 DOOH screens across key locations in Singapore that would have seen Schroders’ DOOH ads were also served native and display ads through Yahoo’s DSP.
