VisitScotland and United Airlines collaborate on campaign via Posterscope

VisitScotland is promoting United Airlines daily non-stop flight to Edinburgh from Newark with a dynamic campaign designed to reach potential travelers in the right mindset at the right time.
Developed with agency Posterscope USA, the campaign uses Liveposter, Posterscope’s dynamic creative platform, to trigger one of 32 unique and specific creative messages across Penn Station’s Link NYC screens.
For example, morning commute imagery suggests Fridays is a ‘pay day.’ Lunchtime will present images of some of the local cuisine and, when the temperatures dip, the screens automatically serve up a glass of Scotch. Sundown in Manhattan triggers picturesque views of the Highland’s Northern Light’s and Edinburgh castle illuminates.
A separate campaign is designed to drive urgency on the route to the airport via two digital billboards on highways that lead into Newark Airport and display live countdowns to the next flight to Edinburgh on United Airlines.

This project also pivots to real-time messaging and weather/event triggers as opposed to static banners.
“Understanding the mind-set of our audiences in real-time is the cornerstone of our strategic thinking,” said David Gladding, associate director, digital creative, Posterscope USA. “We know that one-third of Americans search for ‘last minute getaways’ within three days before the date of travel, so this campaign digs into that experience-hungry, escapism mind-set and uses data to tell us when and where messages conveying Scotland’s beauty, appeal and romanticism would be most memorable and impactful.”
VisitScotland collaborates with numerous partners and shops to encourage tourists. For instance, VisitScotland worked with 22 airlines in 2015 and 2016, including a new Delta service from JFK to Edinburgh. Social media has been another key focus in order to directly engage with potential tourists.
Followers of VisitScotland’s Facebook account have increased 157% to 661,000 since April 2014. The organizations other social media accounts have grown sharply as well.

Australia Post launches digital OOH campaign using Liveposter technology

In an Australian first, Posterscope Australia has delivered dynamic, geo-targeted digital OOH mapping at scale in a campaign using Posterscope’s proprietary Liveposter technology.
Working in conjunction with Dentsu Aegis Network sister agency Dentsu Mitchell and creative agency, GPY&R, Posterscope rolled out its new capabilities with the Australia Post campaign which allows consumers at around 550 OOH locations across the country to geo-locate their closest parcel locker and retrieve maps and directions.
The Liveposter platform enables digital campaigns to run seamlessly across multiple networks and media owners. It uses a range of available data sources to optimise the communication across the day, week or campaign period and provides full control over the content without the need to individually supply media owners’ systems.
Says Adrian Venditti, group agency director, Posterscope: “With Liveposter, we now have the ability to change messages at scale in real-time which was the perfect technology for us to take to Australia Post to make their message as relevant as possible for each location and literally drive people from screen to store.
“With Digital OOH expected to account for a 50% share of the Australian OOH market by the end of 2017, it’s important we help our clients deliver more effective Digital OOH campaigns as we know that advertising cut through is higher when using dynamic creative. There are no other solutions in market currently that can deliver the same output at scale and we are very excited to see the results this generates for Australia Post.”
Dentsu Mitchell group client service director Michelle O’Brien said proximity targeting was key to the success of this campaign.
Says O’Brien: “Using maps delivered to customers via Liveposter will not only drive awareness of the Australia Post Parcel Lockers but demonstrate the large scale of the Parcel Locker network through serving targeted ads. We know the strength of Digital OOH when it comes to creating visual impact as well as the effect on recall when combined with messaging relevancy. Liveposter was the next logical step as it allowed for us to build impact, relevancy and highlight the scale of the Parcel Locker network.”
Posterscope expects to see more Dentsu Aegis Network clients utilising the Liveposter technology in the near future to fully exploit the opportunities to customise and target campaigns through digital OOH.

HEX shows the time advantage to passengers

To demonstrate the time advantage gained by taking the Heathrow Express (HEX) to Heathrow Airport compared to other forms of transport such as tube and car, HEX executed a dynamic OOH campaign that showed the length of time taken from any given location.
The aim was to remind existing customers of the efficiency and ease of travelling by HEX whilst also attracting new customers to the network who may not have considered or been aware of the time benefit, whether for their current journey to Heathrow or subsequent journeys.
Using TfL API data and Google travel data the campaign demonstrated the time it would take to travel from each specific location to Heathrow Airport at that particular moment by different modes of transport.  HEX data was also integrated to ensure that accurate information, including any disruptions, was factored into the CMS platform.
The campaign, created by Posterscope, Carat and Liveposter, is appearing on ECN screens, Rail D6s and Euston and Liverpool Street Motion and Rail Transvision screens until the end of October.
