5 Reasons Why Out-Of-Home Media Is the Better Choice

CIMB at Soekarno Hatta International Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia
Hitachi at Jakarta Highway (Jl. Jend Gatot Subroto), Indonesia
24 hours, 7 days a week constant exposure
>  You can never turn them off. It is not something people can click to close a window or turn the page to make it stop ‘bothering’ them by being in their sight. Be it day or night, rain or shine, outdoor media stay there no matter what, continuously transmitting messages that they are supposed to.
>  The airport is a good example of a constant exposure, where there are people walking around 24/7. The CIMB lightbox at Jakarta International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world, is located at the International Departure boarding area.
>  Alternatively, there is also the highway in Jakarta. Being labeled one of the ‘worst traffic in the world’ means that it has one of the highest vehicular traffics too. With this fact, it is for certain that the billboards located there are being seen by thousands of people each day.

ART-vertisement: OCBC Campaign at Raffles Place, Singapore

Design Possibilities: Creative Outdoor
>  There are endless ways of portraying your ideas or sending your messages across to public. Your idea is only limited by your own creativity. There are so many different types of outdoor advertising that you can explore. Billboards alone can be varied into back-lit, front-lit, tri-vision or even digital.
>  Portrayed above is OCBC’s Stay Curious Campaign which was executed back in 2007. 
M1 at People’s Park Complex, Singapore
SingTel at Batam Centre Point Ferry Terminal, Indonesia
  Specific target in specific location
>  Outdoor advertising lets you choose to whom you wish to present your material to. For example, if you’re targeting athletes or active sport goers, you might pick an LED billboard in the stadium. If you’re targeting teens, then you might pick locations near the arcade or fast food restaurants perhaps. If you’re targeting the senior citizens, maybe places such as the park or the hospital.
>  In the first image above, M1 is targeting the crowd exiting the MRT station –specifically towards the Chinese community, as it is located at Chinatown. This explains why the advertisement is in Chinese. The ads for SingTel, on the other hand, are all in Bahasa Indonesia. They are targeting the Indonesians / tourists travelling to Singapore to purchase their hi!Tourist prepaid cards upon arrival.
FLIR & Toshiba at Sim Lim Square, Singapore

  No escape; More people spend their time out-of-home than indoors
>  It is a known fact that these days, people are mostly travelling out rather than staying in. Especially in a fast moving country, everybody wants to be up-to-date –be it with the latest fashion trends, hanging out at the most hip cafes or catch the hit movie that people have been anxiously waiting. This means that they have to travel or eat out, which leads to yet another reason why people travel; to work a part/full-time job so that they could afford their lifestyle.
>  Most technophiles would probably frequent I.T. malls such as Sim Lim Square – perfect for Toshiba’s new Qosmio X370 notebook launch.
>  It is also the ideal location for FLIR to promote their new infrared cameras with the tagline, ‘Delivering the future of infrared.’ These are thermal cameras for electrical & mechanical, made to detect safety hazards before they happen.
Citibank at Soekarno Hatta International Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia
  Impactful, Impressive & Influential
>  The reason Out-of-Home (OOH) media is called “out-of-home” is because they are information that is consumed outside of homes. OOH media are mostly in large formats. Such examples are the big LED screens on the inside or outside of malls and the huge billboards on the highways. They are meant to be eye-catchy so the larger the better. Billboards are strategically places in prominent places where the big crowds and heavy traffics are. People may not realize but billboards send their messages across subliminally. This means that you may not remember where or how you see it, but your brain already has that knowledge stored just by glancing –especially if you keep going to and fro the same route and seeing the same thing repeatedly.

>  What is better than a static image advertisement? An interactive one. Citibank advertises at our LCD screens in Jakarta International Airport to target the business frequent flyers and the middle to high class people. A moving / changing visual would certainly grab the attention and curiosity of viewers. This is how OOH media can be engaging.

  After all that is stated above, don’t you want to consider giving OOH media a shot yourself? To find out more on how this can be useful to you, drop us a ring at 0811 7747 888.

Out of Home Advertising is the Future

This year marks my tenth year in Out of Home Advertising – actually, I have in the world of Out of Home advertising way before then, but that's another story. In the words of Nadja Lossgott from her article on DandAD - The Future of Outdoor Advertising
‘Outdoor’ often feels like both advertising’s past and its future. You can’t accuse outdoor of being reluctant to change. A quick look at the Outdoor award categories gives you a clue. There’s ambient, ambient digital screens, interactive outdoor experiences, live events, non-formatted digital outdoor, special builds. The list goes on.

Out of Home Advertising never gave me a day’s of rest in its ever changing application and adaptation to all the ways communications have transformed in the last 10 years. From the static billboards to the mechanical trivisions, scrolling lightboxes, creative executions and ambient immersive Out of Home and then from the digital small screens to the giant and infinite LED screens spanning building walls. It is also more than a format but also an experience – experience of a welcome lounge – and HECK, some billboards can even serve you a soda (beer for me please). Here’s one that kills mosquitos and here’s another that does social good by collecting and purifying water from deserts. But we did not convert them all.

 Again in Nadja Lossgott words
The intrusive, inflexibile and mute billboards. They feel like throwbacks to the old way of doing things. A flat image with an unyielding rule that the consumer can take in no more than eight words (unless they’re Economist readers). How boring. How old school. Until you remember 2015's ‘Shot on iPhone 6’ campaign. Simple, traditional and utterly un-missable pieces of art in the urban landscape.
Photo: Esther Havens 

In this same year, the iPhone campaign also took the Cannes Lion Grand Prix for Out of Home advertising for its campaign to use billboards to feature users' iPhone 6 photos.
It proves our past can be our friend too. There is a piece of research that has always stayed with me. In focus groups people will remember seeing a brand’s new television ad, even though no such ad has been on air. It turns out that what people are recalling is the billboards they pass each and every day. People don’t forget billboards. Although they sometimes mislable them. They might not be shiny, they might not be new, but billboards are real workhorses. We shouldn’t dismiss them. The other good thing about billboards is you can’t adblock the view.
In fact Out-of-Home advertising is growing.

It is one of the only adspend sectors which has not been cannibalized by digital advertising. In fact in Adage's most recent article, “Technology Fuels Renaissance in Out-of-Home Advertising” it was well noted by Magna Global that
Out-of-home advertising was the only traditional media business to grow last year, Magna Global said in its ad revenue forecast last December, citing "the superior yield brought in by digital panels as well as better measurement and trading metrics allowing OOH and cinema to tap into branding budgets and TV budgets.
" Spending on out-of-home ads in the U.S. grew to $7.3 billion last year from $7 billion in 2014, according to the forecast, which groups cinema and outdoor advertising together. The sector still accounts for only a modest share of total ad spending, 4.3%, compared with 35.3% for digital. But outdoor is forecast to hold about that same share through 2019. By contrast, the share for newspaper print ad spending is expected to fall to 4.2% in 2019 from 8.4% today while magazine ad pages drop to 5.3% from 9.2%, according to Magna Global. (Online ads bought on newspaper and magazine sites are grouped in digital.)
Out-of-home advertising is drawing a steady stream of marketing dollars even as other forms of traditional advertising lose ground to digital. It doesn't hurt that consumers are encountering more signs and out-of-home video while online ads and TV commercials get easier to avoid.
Out-of-home advertising is works as long as there is need for humans to travel and GET OUT OF HOME whether is it for work, live, play!

More and more E-commerce businesses are using Out of Home Advertising – and why not?

Considering that a huge and growing number of audience now consume news, entertainment, make decisions, purchase via digital channels – for news it is either via the e-version of the local newspapers or even from the NYT or Huffington Post. The truth is that most of any news you really need to know is on your best friend’s Facebook feed or curated by your favorite media maven on their Twitter feed. Buying takes place in the online world via a trusted platform or via a C2C platform for exchanges. But once the consumer is hooked on a certain digital platform the stickiness to switch e-platforms is high unless there was a shift in the quality of experience. You know – when you prefer to use Taobao to Amazon or the higher tendency to prefer to read from Huffington or The Guardian online or what was that? So as competition amongst e-commerce and digital businesses grow, Out-of-home advertising is one of the key thrust to switch users and get the USP known to new audiences and reinforce what the current users already know and value the e-commerce product. And as said, Out-of-home advertising cannot be adblocked or skipped.

 This same article from Adage also pointed out how “Technology Fuels Renaissance in Out-of-Home Advertising” as brands link outdoor and mobile marketing
Ivan Pollard, senior VP-strategic marketing at Coca-Cola North America. But when Coke makes targeted plays in outdoor -- like publishing a consumer tweet about a brand -- it ensures that the "personal story is one that resonates with everybody," he said, because outdoor remains a one-to-many medium.
Most recently example was the use of social tool Snapchat in the Out of Home Advertising context ran by Netflix featured in this Adweek's article
it was an “interesting, offline-social combination” that …”allowed latest out-of-home campaign lets Snapchat users in France swap faces with its TV characters including House of Cards' Frank Underwood and the namesake of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Bringing outdoor ads together with Snapchat seems to be a growing phenomenon, with the mobile app itself leading the way. In late March, Snapchat debuted smart, stealthy roadside ads in several cities. And last week, it bought a huge, digital ad on a Times Square billboard”

Similar to the ones seen above, TPM Outdoor had the pleasure of servicing for Singtel in the same format.

However, the greater crowd is still at the Batam Ferry Terminals themselves. This is to catch the larger audience as the terminals are near their shopping malls which are often packed with  people.

Myanmar Airlines; Branding in Singapore

So last week I had shared a blog on Myanmar Airlines in Vietnam and promised more of their advertising sites with us here in Singapore.

Just look at how impressive they are in the pictures below.

Myanmar Airlines @ People's Park Complex D

Myanmar Airlines @ People's Park Complex E
And the grandest of all, People's Park Complex B.

It is so huge that it can catch your attention even from more than 20 metres away!

Isn't that impressive? 

It seems like Myanmar Airlines is getting pretty aggressive in their branding campaign.
What's your game plan?

Myanmar Travels & Festivities

Why Myanmar?

The weather is just getting hotter each day. Even the rain only lasts for a short while and it gets humid again in a matter of minutes! Do you feel like standing in the cold shower forever? Well that's going to increase your water bill. Don't worry, there is a better way out plus, a short getaway involved.

For a few days, typically between 12th till 16th of April , it is the water festival in a few countries; Myanmar, Laos and Thailand. They have different names in different countries; Pi Mai Lao in Laos, Songkran in Thailand and Thingyan in Myanmar.
This festival is celebrated towards the end of the hot, dry season and welcoming the Myanmar New Year. Everyone is spraying at each other using water hoses, water guns, or even just throwing pails of water. This activity symbolises the 'washing off' of the bad luck and sins in the past year for a fresh new start. 

So who wouldn't want to cool down with a short getaway? In coincidence with the festival, Myanmar Airlines is now aggressively showing their presence via OOH media. We have just put up a magnificent billboard in Vietnam (below).

Myanmar Airlines @ Vietnam Central Business District
Still more to come, Myanmar Airlines in Singapore... Stay tuned in!

Evolution of Lights and Human Interaction

The Light Exhibition at ArtScience Museum; FutureLab

Crystal Universe
With the aid of modern technology, lights and human interaction is getting pretty interesting these days. If you have yet seen it, you should head down to the artscience museum to experience it yourself.

Walk through an enchanting room full of blossoming flowers and also the decaying ones. This depicts the life cycle of nature which is endlessly growing and dying, time after time.

In the next room, you can find yourself immersed in the tranquility of the visuals and music. You can even lie in for a relaxing mind-clearing session. 

How would you like to see your creation come to life? This activity allows you to sketch your idea of what is in town and make it go 'live' on the big screens. Kids are left in awe watching their colourful cars and buildings animated in an instance.


If you do not like the city scene, here's an alternative; Sketch Aquarium.

This magical table reacts to the movement you make with your touch and also the items placed on it. Little sparks would appear at the tip of your fingers, rain would start pouring from a click of the clouds and the little animated people would jump over obstacles that you set in front of them.

Little People
Yet another fun interactive activity where you can create your own hopscotch design with shapes of different colours. Once done, people can actually play on your hopscotch design. So get your creative juices flowing and make it as fun as you want it to!
Light Ball Orchestra

These bouncy balls (above) change their colours based on interactions and movements. Similarly, so do the media block chairs below.
Media Block Chairs

One of the prettiest and therapeutic visuals you'll see is the Universe of Water Particles.

Apart from the ones mentioned above, there are other interesting rooms that I haven't covered. Don't miss this exciting experience for yourself.

This creative execution definitely opens up the mind to explore more options which can be used for innovative advertising ideas. Your creativity is limitless.

Running for Billboard

Creative Outdoor Execution - Sports Brands

Billboard ads are getting more and more interactive these days. One of the most ingenious ideas is to run past a billboard at a certain speed to get a freebie; a pair of shoes. Watch the video below;

Read more here:

This was done by Reebok earlier this month. It was definitely a great way to catch people's attention which immediately became a crowd caller. 

What's YOUR ingenious idea?

Less Than 100 Days To The Festive Season


Just a while ago, we were celebrating Chinese New Year and soon we’ll be preparing for yet another celebration; Ramadhan and Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Everybody knows that each year, nearing this festive season, Geylang is the highlight of the day. With newly opened malls just last year, one can only imagine the size of the crowd this year. It is widely known that the Malay community is always buzzing in Geylang area in search of their traditional costumes, decorative lightings, kuih-muih & keropok and many more during this holy month.

Like any other year, the bazaar will be just as huge and happening as always. Places of interests include – Paya Lebar Square, Tanjong Katong Complex, City Plaza, One KM Mall, Haig Road Market & Food Centre, Geylang Serai Market and Joo Chiat Complex. The famous Geylang Bazaar itself covers the whole of this entire area - one day is never enough to cover all of the stalls. 

Nearest to Tristar Complex is the food bazaar – the most ideal place to catch the biggest crowd especially from 5pm – 7pm. From this area also, you will have a clear view of our billboard, as seen below. The festive season is one of the best opportunities to catch the biggest crowds. 

TPM -  Tristar Complex - Bazaar Geylang

Past campaigns that have been successful here are the Singapore Police Force, ERA Property Agents and other small businesses such as concerts and renovation companies.

TPM - Nova Health @ Tristar Complex 
TPM - Singapore Police Force @ Tristar Complex

This is the time when the Malay Muslim community gets ready for their festive season. Are YOU ready though?

Advertising in Chinatown

Did you know? People’s Park Complex in Chinatown is one of the most reputable money changing hubs in Singapore, amongst others such as The Arcade in Raffles Place, Lucky Plaza on Orchard Road, Mustafa Centre in Little India and Parkway Parade in Marine Parade.

These hubs are also well-known as Singapore’s tourist attractions, easily accessible by public transport. So it is very commodious for travelers to do the exchange.

There are also many bank/finance companies that prefer to put up an advertisement in this area. ICBC (Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Limited), for example. As shown in picture below;

ICBC @ People's Park Centre, Chinatown

This year, Bank of China has invested in many types of advertising during their launch of two global commodity business centers - the first Chinese bank to do so outside its home market.

TPM Outdoor is proud to be part of this fruitful event.

Another recent project is with DBS Bank Singapore. Currently promoting their best remittance service – a S$0 transfer fee to Malaysia.
