ADCentricity Announces Results of Insightful Location-Based Digital Media Research Study at iStrategy Conference in Toronto

TORONTO, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Recently, Peoplecount conducted a research study on behalf of ADCentricity Corporation that speaks to the effectiveness of marketing through location-based digital media.

Peoplecount based the research study on an ADCentricity client in the insurance industry that ran a national campaign across the US comprised of both digital signage and "in-store" radio advertisements over a four-week period.  The campaign targeted consumers in doctor's offices, fitness centers and pharmacies.  Towards the end of the advertising campaign, over four hundred intercept surveys were conducted with the objective to quantify media notice, brand awareness, advertising message recall, purchase intent and product usage, campaign influence, and basic audience demographics.

Key findings of the case study included:

Media Notice - 80% of respondents heard the radio ad, and 50% of respondents noticed the ad on the digital screen.  Only 1% of respondents were not aware of any advertisements.

Recall - DOOH exhibited an exceptional recall of 68% of respondents, with 22% of those respondents recalling the advertisement unaided.

Purchase Intent & Product Usage - Speaking to the relevance of reaching the correct consumer with targeted advertising, 56% of respondents had independent insurance at the time of the survey, and 10% planned on purchasing insurance in the next twelve months.

Basic Audience Demographics - Of those surveyed, 60% were female and 40% were male.  The ages of the respondents were 26% 18-34, 41% 35-54, and 32% 55+.

Overall the study found that venues with long dwell times, excellent screen visibility, and captive audience with few other distractions effectively combine to increase notice and recall.

ADCentricity is presenting the results as part of its Platinum Masterclass sponsorship of the Toronto iStrategy Conference, the 17th installment of the global conference series, occurring at the Intercontinental Hotel Toronto Centre on December 4, 2012.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.
