Why you should have Gantries in your OOH plan


Global Advertisers owns the most number of gantry sites in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. A gantry, in case you are not familiar with the word, is a billboard that spans the entire breath of an important road offering a clear view of the ad displayed from long distances. Gantries are erected at some of the most important roads in a city/town/geographical location. If a big splash is what you wish to achieve, a gantry ensures that no motorist or pedestrian who passes by the road misses out on the ad. While Global Advertisers regular billboards use innovation to attract attention, they may not always be positioned to be seen over long distances. This is not the case with gantries as they cannot be missed by anyone who passes the location. Global's gantries are like their hoardings/boards available on barter basis. They can also be engaged on rotation basis where you get to rotate display of your ad over a variety of sites over a period of time. Global Advertisers also offers sponsorship to various events/ films on cash as well as barter/ quid pro quo basis.

OOH to grow 7-8% in 2015 on back of e-commerce, real estate spends

The outdoor advertising sector saw an increase in ad spends in the quarter ending September and is on track to register 7-8 per cent growth in 2015, said OOH owners and media agencies we spoke with.
According to OOH agency heads, the increase in ad spends could be attributed to a number of reasons. For example, Nabendu Bhattacharyya, MD of Milestone Brandcom says Q3 has been better because of spending by categories like mobile handsets, m-commerce and e-commerce and media and entertainment. “Previously, we have not seen the m-commerce category spend this strongly. I would say that ad spends have gone up by 20-25 per cent in July-September’15 as compared to the same period last year,” he said.

On similar lines, Sanjeev Gupta, MD at Global Advertisers, welcomed the positivity seen in the market in this quarter, claiming that the market had picked up momentum after a recessionary trend in Q2. He said that ad revenues for OOH would have increased in the range of 70-80 per cent in Q3 as compared to Q2. When asked about which categories have spent the most money, he singled out electronics, real estate, entertainment channels and event companies. “Even among e-commerce companies Amazon has clearly been the biggest spender. Apart from Amazon, there were just 2-3 others that have spent big, but Amazon has spent a lot of money on all mediums,” he said.

Noomi Mehta, Chairman and MD of Selvel also agreed that, overall, ad spends on OOH had increased across India with Mumbai and Delhi seeing a lot of spending and with Bangalore remaining steady. However, he pointed out that the ongoing tussle in Kolkata with the municipal corporation has caused clients to drop investments in outdoor. “We cannot understand what is going on in Kolkata. They (The municipal corporation) say that out of the 400 sites given to us, 250 are illegal. So even clients have lost interest and don’t want to advertise,” he explained.

On the other hand, Rajiv Saxena, MD of Blue Ocean Media, feels that the OOH sector will not grow till the inventory crunch being faced is addressed. “There has hardly been any new media or new inventory introduced for a long time. So long as the industry remains local it will not grow,” he said. Saxena, however, agreed that Q3’15 had been much better than Q3’14 due to government campaigns as well as spending by e-commerce sector even though some sectors like the film industry have not been doing any promotions on OOH for the past 6 months.

With the onset of monsoons in Mumbai, Zeel Rainwear goes outdoor

NZ Seasonal Wear, the company that manufactures rainwater protection apparel Zeel and Water-Fighter has recently launched a high octane 10 day outdoor campaign in Mumbai taking 30 premium sites for promoting its brand ‘Zeel’. According to the company, though Zeel and Water-Fighter are both water resistant apparel meant for Mumbai monsoon-wear, Zeel is more fashion oriented utility based premium products and caters to the youth, whereas Water-Fighter has been manufactured keeping in mind the generic economical class who want value for money.

Partnering with global advertisers with the onset of monsoons in the county, the brand has taken 30 large format premium sites in Mumbai covering areas like Thane, Parel, SCLR, Mira Road and Opera house among others. The creatives pitch the brand ambassador Vivek Oberoi sporting Zeel Rainwear with the communication ‘Be Monsoon Ready’, the communication also highlights that the brand is meant for all age groups and its associate brand Water Fighter.

"Rainwear is a seasonal product manufactured by multiple players branded and unbranded that relies greatly on impulse purchases and is often of poor quality. Zeel Rainwear promises quality, and durability along with style quotient. It asks buyers to not merely consider rainwear as protective wear but as a statement of style, and urges people to be 'monsoon ready' and not consider rains as an occasion when fashion and style have to take a backseat. Our campaign strategy, site selection and execution factored these insights into the mix, which is why the impact has been so good," says Sanjeev Gupta, MD, Global Advertisers.

Paradise Group, the 20 year old real-estate company which claims to have 75 projects across Navi Mumbai, has recently rolled out a campaign in the city to promote its 42-acre Sai World City Project in Palaspe-Panvel. The objective of the campaign is to get sale registrations for the project that promises 13, 42 storey towers, luxury homes, themed landscaping, clubs and open green spaces. 

The real-estate group has partnered with Global Advertisers for executing the promotional campaign across the city for a period of one month. The Paradise Group’s Sai World City Project campaign which has mainly employed hoardings and gantries, highlights and showcases prominent buildings from London, Paris, New York, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo as part of the imagery to communicate that the luxury homes will be built on an ‘international’ concept.

Sanjeev Gupta, MD, Global Advertisers, says that the response of the campaign has been very good which has resulted in the extension of the campaign. “The site selection was done after several meetings with the client. The targeted demographic, the project’s positioning and the strengths of the brand were factored into the campaign that covers the best of neighbourhoods in the eastern and western suburbs. The going has been really good. We, on our part are happy, that the client is happy,” he adds.

Andheri, Panvel, Bandra and Mankhurd are a few areas where the campaign has been put up.

Benefits of Digital Billboards in India

1. Flexible Medium :
Put any design; a caricature, a movie clip or stunt on a digital billboard if you please. It is fast, flexible and offers great scope for creative expression.

2. Bright and colourful :
With digital billboards, every day seems like Diwali. It is bright, luminous and colorful. A skyline filled with billboards is magical, romantic and exciting. A city is known by its skyline and lighting. Digital billboards add that extra festive cheer 24 X 7X 365.

3. Eye catching :
For brands, nothing catches the eye like a digital billboard, which writes a message with light against a dark black sky. This becomes even more striking when the digital billboards skirt the sea line in a city like Mumbai or Cochin.

4. Destination Branding :
Several important locations in global cities like London, Hongkong, Singapore and Tokyo get their visual appeal from their giant-size digital billboards who give the sites a carnival-like air. India could use this medium to create tourist destinations, 24X7 tourist enclaves and safe nightlife districts.

5. Futuristic Medium:
The future is digital. When commerce, communication and entertainment are all taking the digital direction, it is expected that outdoor advertising in India will rise up to the digital challenge by rising up to face it. See in this light, digital is not just another choice but a pressing need.

Ekta World promotes its Realty-Index for a limited period in Mumbai

Established in 1987, the real-estate group, Ekta World has recently launched an OOH media campaign in Mumbai. The group aims at promoting a novel concept calling it the ‘Realty Index’; listing down the best deals available in the current real estate market for a limited period of time. Interestingly the ‘Realty-Index’ only pertains to the real-estate projects by Ekta World, claiming that till the 19th of this month 10 of their projects will showcase available units, current market price, its growth value and depreciation value and the future estimated price.

The OOH campaign that has been executed by both Bright Outdoor and Global Advertisers in Mumbai has a uniform creative with a couple of iterations in the communication, depending on the media site. The communication displays an ascending bar chart of buildings showing a bullish trend that reads ‘the only realty index in the world, where you always stand to gain’ in some, ‘book a home in Ekta Oculus now and gain more’ and ‘book a home in Ekta Tripolis now to gain more’ in the others. All the communication has a common call to action number, website details and the offer period, which is 9th to 19th of April. 

Yogesh Lakhani, CMD, Bright Outdoor says that Bright Outdoor implemented the current campaign effectively through a strategic approach involving extensive research, valuable insights and execution to ensure that the real estate campaign gains maximum traction since the campaign offering is for a short duration. “With Ekta World’s new concept and communication on its realty index coupled with high impact outdoor sites all across the city, I am sure the brand will be able to engage a large target audience for its upcoming projects,” he adds.


 "Ekta World is a trusted client and we share a long standing relationship with them. They were very clear about what they wanted. The task on our part was to select hoardings that did justice to the goals of the target set by the client. We gave several options and after careful consideration, the final sites were selected. We are in the middle of the campaign and the outcome has been very positive so far," explains Sanjeev Gupta, MD, Global Advertisers.

The campaign that is up for a short duration has mainly used traditional outdoor media formats and has been rolled out at locations such as Bandra, Andheri, Mira Road, Opera House, Sion, Cadbury Junction, Worli Naka, Dadar, Malad, Juhu, Andheri Link Road, Lokhandwala, Vile Parle, Cadle Road and Warden Road among others.

Good times ahead for OOH sector, but attracting talent still a challenge

Good times ahead for OOH sector, but attracting talent still a challenge
The past two years have been quite productive for the OOH sector. And, 2015 has started with a promise that the outdoor industry’s representative body, Indian Outdoor Advertising Association (IOAA), will play a more proactive role, which is bound to bring more positive news for the industry in years to come. One area where the industry has traditionally lagged is in attracting new talent compared with other mediums.
TV has its glamour, print prestige, digital excitement and radio charm which has often led the humble OOH space getting the shorter end of the stick.
In an earlier interview to exchange4media, CEO of Percept OOH Rajneesh Bahl had said, “More and more professionals are getting into the industry and people are investing in it. The only concern is that the knowledge domain is not increasing. If this increases, the sector will do really well. No new talent coming to the industry, which stagnates growth and inflow of new ideas.”
This analysis is quite common when it comes to the OOH industry, but outdoor agency heads feel that the scenario has improved a lot and is changing for the better.
A reason for this, says Nabendu Bhattacharyya, CEO and MD of Milestone Brandcom, is that for a long time OOH was run and controlled by second and third generation media owners and given the nature of the business, it was largely an unorganised and complex industry with high fragmentation.
“The A&M industry adopted the OOH medium only during 1995-2000. Once agencies showed interest and began to take the medium seriously, clients also started to show interest and push agencies to deliver,” he said.

   So how difficult is it to find the right talent, especially from different fields?
Laqshya Media COO Atul Srivastava says talent is now coming to the OOH industry from all sectors. Recruitments, he said, are happening from campuses as organisations now have long-term plans and projects. However, he agrees that attracting talent could be a bit difficult because of the perception of the industry. “But once they are in (the industry), retention is natural. Recognition of individual excellence is a key differentiator to this industry, which binds the challenge-seekers to it,” he added.

Sanjeev Gupta, MD of Global Advertisers, says experienced talent is expensive and experience might sometimes create an unbending mindset, which is not ready to adopt new ways of doing things. “There are factors such as increased competition, price cutting and rising HR costs. Also, talent seeks better packages, perks and more attractive responsibility profile,” said Gupta. This is a point to which Bhattacharyya also agrees.

“All new B-school grads want to join industries with proven returns. All of them look for a good pay package. That’s their mindset from the beginning. I don’t blame them as the OOH sector should first get the ‘industry’ status. Being the third largest medium, we still don’t have any industry unified currency. There are a few initiatives from the advertising association to address these challenges faced by the industry. Hopefully, we would receive positive responses shortly,” he said.

Global Advertisers ‘Triumphs’ with German inner-wear brand campaign

International innerwear brand Triumph has recently buttoned up an OOH campaign in Mumbai to introduce its new product line. The campaign, titled ‘Body Make-up and Lace All-Over’, promotes Triumph’s products positioned to be ‘high quality, fashionable and durable, at affordable prices’. The 15-day campaign, which was rolled out in mid-January, will continue till the end of the month and has been executed by Global Advertisers at multiple locations in South Mumbai and suburbs to launch the new product line. 

  “This is a rather special campaign as it bridges the aspirations of Indian women and a high-quality German brand like Triumph. We selected locations for the sites rather carefully based on the intended demographic of the new lines, delivering an effective, low-cost customized campaign for Triumph,” says Sanjeev Gupta, MD, Global Advertisers.  

Triumph undertook extensive research before introducing the lines that have been specifically selected and designed on basis of the bodies and lifestyles of Indian women. According to an industry report, Triumph had about 175 large format stores in the country with a plan to add 25 more in 2014 and also a plan to offer double of what it was offering in 2013. Last year, the brand had introduced its ‘Body Make-up’ line at the Triumph Fashion Show held in Hyatt Mumbai as part of an aggressive product push.

In order to reach out to investors in Mumbai and locals of Sindhudurg for rich investment opportunities by new and upcoming real-estate projects in the area, Global Advertisers has recently executed a two-week campaign on behalf of the Builders Association of Sindhudurg.

Global Advertisers had bagged three consecutive campaigns for MCHI-CREDAI in the past six months and the company claims that it has been instrumental in attracting interest of investors in Mumbai, Nashik, Pune, Goa and Nagpur. 

“We have managed to deliver an innovative, cost-effective, and customised outdoor media campaign for the Builders Association of Sindhudurg. We are glad to have been entrusted with the campaign, and we request all builders to consider what we have on offer. We allow our clients to space their payments to us. We offer barter deals. We accept flats, plots, bungalows or even holiday homes as payment in lieu of hoardings. It is an exchangeof value for value,” says Sanjeev Gupta, MD, Global Advertisers. 

The company claims that outdoor advertising offers high ROI for real estate projects. In addition to hoardings, the campaign, which started on January 17, 2015, has also employed railway media and bus media in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region locations such as Dadar, Fort, Thane, CST and Dombivali.
