Why DOOH is ideal for political advertising


Like it or not, it's election season, and that means tons of political advertising. According to E-marketer, this year’s political ad spending is expected to hit $3.46 billion, a dramatic increase over 2020.

It used to be that TV was the preferred medium for political ad spend, but that was before streaming services overwhelmed the already-fragmented ad space. The past 4 years have shown a significant shift to digital – a growth of 156.3% from 2020, reports E-marketer – and much of that growth is increasingly programmatic. That means the time to consider DOOH is now. 

DOOH is ideal for political advertisers because it allows them to geo-target down to the neighborhood or zip code level to reach the intended target. And with its quick-activation and dynamic messaging capabilities, it’s no wonder political advertisers are leaning in on this growing medium. 

In addition, a recent interview with OAAA President and CEO Anna Bager reiterates that OOH is a favorable and trusted medium that can help get out the vote. 

"It’s a good way to get in front of consumers,” she said. “This election is going to be about converting voters that probably wouldn’t have voted.”
