Pikasso and Hic Mobile have announced a partnership to enable retargeting on mobile, allowing the engagement of consumers on both big and small screens, at any moment of the day by any person passing by one of the Pikasso digital screens or billboards.
Francesca Vincenti, Head of Programmatic and Innovation at Pikasso told us “We are delighted to propose to agencies and clients an additional service that complements and reinforces OOH Campaigns. Coupling OOH/DOOH & Mobile Advertising will amplify their individual impact, enhance brand recall and engagement and improve campaign efficiency to drive to store while maximizing the results of their ad spend. Thanks to Hic Mobile … brands in our markets can leverage the high mobile penetration and engage with consumers in the real-world and in the digital-world.”
Hic Mobile is a leading Italian Mobile Marketing Specialist focused on Proximity Marketing, this partnership will allow brands to create a measurable omnichannel brand experience.
A lot of recent global research repeatedly demonstrates that OOH is the best primer for mobile engagement. If planned and executed correctly, the convergence of the two formats will drive the consumer further down the purchase funnel; by keeping track of when the interest is generated when exposed to a screen or billboard followed by the retargeting on mobile leading to the initiation of an online search or click of an ad and eventual purchase of the product/service at a real store. Advertisers are now able to see a clear path that began from a geofenced OOH location.
Max Willinger, co-founder of Hic Mobile said “All clients using this media mix will be able to maximize results and optimize their budgets, taking the best of what cross media campaigns have to offer. Pikasso, international OOH/DOOH leader, listens carefully to market needs and once again has demonstrated to be innovative and always one step ahead!”.
