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.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
