In the newest Nielsen OOH research study from OAAA, more than half of US adults 18+ report they have noticed a poster billboard in the last month. Given today’s highly competitive and fragmented media environment, another important finding is most respondents agree poster ads stand out more than other media, including online, mobile devices, radio, and newspaper advertising. The study found 94 percent of those who noticed a poster in the last month looked at the advertising message, and more than half were highly engaged with the ad. Nearly 90 percent recalled seeing advertising, and 47 percent recalled seeing a specific ad. Millennials were most likely to notice posters, with highest viewership (71%) among 25-34-year-olds, while 65 percent of adults 18-44 report noticing posters. In the past month, 65 % of adults noticed a poster directing them to a nearby store, business, or restaurant. Fifty-five percent of consumers who noticed directional posters changed their plans to visit the business advertised. Nearly a quarter of those who saw a poster in the last month made a purchase at the business advertised, and 40% talked about the ad with friends and family. The report also found posters prompt online engagement. Thirty percent of survey respondents searched online for more details about a featured message, and 29 %visited the advertiser’s website.
