Road Runner Media Little Caesar’s Campaign

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Road Runner Media recently ran a Digital Out of Home campaign for Little Caesar’s, using its network of digital screens secured to the rear of vehicles. It promoted the pizza chain’s lunch and dinner combo specials in the greater Los Angeles area and claims an impressive 83.4% lift in instore visitation as a result

We are told that the campaign leveraged the high-fidelity location-based and dynamic content capabilities of the Road Runner patented advertising technology and media panel network, which determines Latitude and Longitude in one second increments.

In real-time, on-board technology computed the address (Point Of Interest: POI) of the restaurant nearest to the van’s location, and inserted it into a day part advert. As the vehicles moved around the Greater Los Angeles area, restaurant location information was updated and dynamically populated to the screens every 7.5 seconds, representing millions of computations over the campaign duration. Pedestrians and drivers in surrounding vehicles saw advertising and content promoting a lunch special during the day and a new product launch for dinner in the evening, POI, combined with day part targeting. The high bright LCD screens displayed brand promotional codes for discounted online ordering when they computed they were not within a three mile radius of any restaurant location, driving reach and frequency, utilizing video adverts.

Chris Riley, CEO of Road Runner Media told us “By combining high fidelity location-based messaging and agile dynamic creative capabilities, the brand harnessed the full power of the Road Runner AdTech and mobile digital network to engage an audience with contextually relevant messages, right time, right place, right audience; driving in store visitation and online orders. We are excited to partner with the leading measurement and attribution partner, Street Metrics, to show the true value of the campaign technology we have built and deployed; the ability to create a highly analogous non exposed group, utilizing a theoretical control vehicle, further showcases Road Runners AdTech and Street Metrics advanced measurement capabilities”

In all, 62 vehicles with Road Runner screens participated in the campaign across Los Angeles, Orange County, and the San Fernando Valley – a geographic area that covers approximately 190 Little Caesars restaurants.

The campaign ran for four weeks with a follow-on campaign booked.

Road Runner Media is the only mobile DOOH media network that has GeoPath screen ID’s for every screen in the network

Currently, Road Runner’s network is active and operational with screens in Atlanta, Boulder, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C.
