Huq, Europe’s most advanced real-world consumer research company, has announced that it will give Digital Out Of Home Media (DOOH) planners the type and quality of demographic data that has previously only been available to advertisers in the programmatic web and mobile online sector. This is the first time that such comprehensive data has been collated from DOOH sites and is a significant enhancement in the way that outdoor campaigns can be activated in a more timely and effective manner.

To demonstrate the effectiveness of their research, the analysis conducted by Huq found that the best billboard space in London for targeting those people with an interest in culture isn’t in a high-profile West End location or outside a large art gallery; it’s actually in Whitechapel, near the Jack the Ripper museum.

By using geo-behavioural data, Huq can substantially enhance the efficacy of DOOH media planning, offering more effective use of budgets and providing companies and brands with an increased return on their media purchasing investment. In addition, the data will stop media owners from undervaluing their inventory and allow them to target premium sites where their investment would deliver significantly better results at locations unlikely even to be on their radar.

Conrad Poulson, CEO at Huq, said: “What this data shows is the way DOOH is bought and sold has got to be re-valuated and refreshed. CMOs expect data to inform each real time investment decision they make in almost every advertising sector; except it would appear in DOOH. This new analytics-led approach will empower media owners to offer more impactful, tailored packages to customers looking to reach specific audiences.”

“This evolutionary development is a huge opportunity for the outdoor sector to leap-frog the industry in how it employs data, after all this would be a win-win situation for vendors and buyers alike. In addition, it will be a considerable boost to DOOH planners who witness budgets being reallocated to online platforms because they claim to deliver better ROI through the use of data,” concluded Poulson

The full sample study mapped 10,000 arts and culture enthusiasts and discovered some surprising results. As well as Whitechapel, the other most effective sites to target “culture vultures” are; Cable Street, Whitechapel, Bromley-by-Bow, by the A12 near the Underground station, Dagenham East Underground station, The Quadrant, Richmond and Harrow Road, near Kensal Green.
