The Focus of the Week: The Role of OOH in Movie Advertising. Is It Worth it?

We think that cozying up on the couch and binge watching the latest TV series is all anyone’s been doing on their weekends lately. People’s media habits around the world have become limited to online activities and watching television.

As more people prefer to watch movies by subscribing to the streaming services, it became vital for the entertainment industry to seek out different mediums of advertisements in order to promote their films and shows to a large audience.

 In our today’s blog post, we shall discuss the power of OOH (Out-of-home) advertising and how MurmurAds can effectively promote the movie releases via LCD backpacks.

Attention Comes First

With the abundance of available shows and films, it’s hard to tell which will be a success and which will be a flop. But, when audience come across an OOH ad, it’s a way to let them know that, “Well, this show (or movie) is good enough to be up on this billboard, so chances are it will be worth your while”.So,by putting the up-coming movie posters/trailers on Murmur’s LCD Backpacks, the creators will be able to reach thousands of viewers just in a day.

Trying A/B Testing

Although there is high demand for good content, competition between studios is fierce and standing out from the crowd can require nearly as much creativity as producing the media itself. By promoting movies on Murmur’s screen, the production teams and cinemas are able to try different versions of the movies’ posters. This can be easily done via Murmur’s Ad Creator platform.

So,it’s important that studios build a ‘brand’ for a film in order to take advantage of this profit margin. MurmurAds can help the production teams with that. So,we can use along with the LCD backpacks, also holograms, table top screens that will be showing the movie poster not only on the streets, but also in restaurants, cafes, public places. And, by the time of movie release, approximately half of the tickets for the premiere will be already sold.
