  3. 3. Executive Summary- The Outdoor Media Centre announced that outdoor revenues grew 9.9% year on year in Q2 2012 to £229m (£208m in 2011).- Figures from the Advertising Association and Warc showed an increase of 1.1% in overall ad spend during the first quarter of 2012. Expenditure is expected to improve over the year, reaching an overall growth rate of 2.5% in 2012, with forecasts of a further rise of 4.4% in 2013 (at current prices).- The top three fastest expanding OOH sectors in H1 2012 were Retail (+17% YOY), Technology (+15% YOY), and Toiletries/Cosmetics (+15% YOY).- The UK is currently in the midst of a double dip recession with Q2 GDP contracting by 0.4%. UK GDP growth for 2012 has been pegged at -0.3% and 1% for 2013 (independent averages / HM Treasury). This context really demonstrates how impressive the positive growth of OOH revenue is.- Two-fifths of UK adults are now smartphone users. As expected the majority are using these when OOH and in multiple locations. More than half (57%) of smartphone users claim to have used their handset when out shopping.- There are several new insight tools and presentations. These include new mobile research focusing particularly on NFC, information on how OOH works with TV, and new ways to analyse OOH speed of cover from Geography of Time and Touchpoints.- Both CBS Outdoor and JCDecaux have been utilising their research panels in recent months and new category insights are highlighted. Similarly both have commissioned recent research on Mobile that compliments Posterscope’s Real World Interactors project.- Primesight have released a large number of tools (Primelife) that they use to help better plan and evaluate OOH campaigns. Similarly Clear Channel have revamped their long running Clear Channel Research Monitor (CCRM) to incorporate the measurement of other media alongside OOH campaigns.

  4. 4. Economic Review and Forecast: 2012UK Adspend:The Outdoor Media Centre announced that outdoor revenues grew 9.9% year on year in Quarter 2 to £229m(£208m in 2011). Major events such as the Diamond Jubilee and the Euro Championships contributed to thatgrowth, as have the 2012 Games. This put OOH growth at 6.3% for H1 2012.All major environments (transport, roadside, retail and leisure) were up year on year, as were all the major sitetypes such as 6 sheets, 48 sheets, 96 sheets, buses, and taxis. Revenues in the digital sector continued to grow27%, as media owners continued to invest, transforming sites in the best locations to digital.Figures from the Advertising Association and Warc showed an increase of 1.1% in overall ad spend during thefirst quarter of 2012. Expenditure is expected to improve over the year, reaching an overall growth rate of 2.5%in 2012, with forecasts of a further rise of 4.4% in 2013 (at current prices).Tim Lefroy, chief executive of the Advertising Association said: “In the face of global economic uncertainty, UKadvertising holds a steady course. Evidence shows that advertising invigorates GDP growth, so a healthy admarket is good news for the whole economy, not just advertisers.”Although marketing budgets have been marginally revised down since Q1 projections, the positive growth shouldstill be recognised as an optimistic sign in light of weakening business confidence and economic difficulties.UK, Europe & Global Growth:The UK is currently in the midst of a double dip recession with Q2 GDP contracting by 0.4%. The agenciescited increased uncertainty regarding the likely negative impact of growth on fiscal consolidation and the risksof adverse shocks from the euro area. UK GDP growth for 2012 has been pegged at -0.3% and 1% for 2013(independent averages/ HM Treasury).Difficulties in fiscal consolidation were exacerbated by the banking sectors woes. The current process ofbank deleveraging is adversely affecting balance sheets and could potentially trigger another credit crunchif quantitative easing fails to keep up. Anti-bank sentiment has been worsened still further due to the LIBORfallout. Collectively these issues have damaged domestic banks’ reputations, but more crucially, their abilityto lend.Similarly, financial market sentiment has too deteriorated over the review period. Vulnerabilities associated withthe indebtedness and competitiveness of several euro-area economies has continued this change. Althoughpolitical developments in Italy and Greece have alleviated some worries, euro-zone tensions continue to be aconcern in the near future.Although the IMF revised up slightly its forecast for 2012 world GDP growth to 3.5% in April 2012, later surveyindicators pointed to a weaker outlook. US growth prospects softened towards the end of 2012 H1, althoughthey remained stronger than in Europe. Growth prospects also weakened in some major emerging economies,such as Brazil, China and India.Back to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 4
  5. 5. Media & Category Spend H1 2011 vs. H1 2012Referring to Ebiquity as the source of data, the changes in advertising expenditure between H1 2011 andH1 2012 can be measured (Figure 2.0). NB. All of the data coming out of Ebiquity are only indications of realrevenue and are not definitive. The difference between the NMR and OMC figures is made up of such thingsas direct sales, barter sales, production inclusive deals, excluded formats e.g. taxis. Official OOH billings areup 9.9% in Q2 2012.Four out of eight media channels have seen a drop in expenditure in H1 2012, with OOH maintaining agrowth (1%).Figure 2.0: Media Spend H1 2011 vs. H1 2012OOH’s YOY growth figure certainly flies in the face of the anecdotal evidence provided by ‘business confidence’survey respondents. The survey showed how total marketing budgets had been revised down for the first time ina year. Almost 17% of survey respondents reported a downward revision to spend during the second quarter of2012. This is matched with a drop in Q2 business confidence. (IPA Bellwether Report - July 2012).Further to this, it should be recognised that OOH’s media share has grown too. Despite the increase share of TV;OOH share has improved to 6.3% (Figure 2.1).Figure 2.1: Media Share H1 2011 vs. H1 2012Back to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 5
  6. 6. Category Spend:In relation to individual categories, the overall trend is not in-line with media expenditure; there has beena wide range of growths and declines among the different categories (Figure 2.2). The top three fastestexpanding OOH sectors were Retail (+17% YOY), Technology (+15% YOY) and Toiletries/Cosmetics(+15% YOY).Figure 2.2: OOH Category Spend H1 2011 vs. H1 2012Figure 2.3: OOH Category Spend H1 2011 vs. H1 2012Back to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 6
  7. 7. Mobile Insight - Ofcom & Google Playbook• Two-fifths of UK adults are now smartphone users. Take-up has risen from 27% in 2011 to 39% in Q1 2012. Take-up levels are highest among younger age groups (16-24s and 25-34s) and those in ABC1 households.• Over four in ten smartphone users say their phone is more important for accessing the internet than any other device. Smartphones are increasingly being used in different ways in consumers’ lives – to help them shop (57%), check-in on a social network (30%), tweet (23%) and watch TV/film content (22%).• The value of UK retail sales transacted online was £2.6bn in February 2012. This represents year- on-year growth for the e-commerce sector of 30%. The high street still accounts for the majority of revenues, but its growth has been much less.• Growth in smartphone take-up resulted in increasing use of mobile data in the year to Q1 2012. The average time spent using mobile data services was 2.1 hours a month in 2011, 25 minutes per month more than in 2010 (+25%), while the volume of data consumed more than doubled in the 18 months to January 2012.• A third of people aged 16 to 24 live in homes where mobiles were the sole form of telephony in Q1 2012, more than twice the 15% average across all adults. The figure among 25-34 year olds was also high, with over a quarter (26%) living in a mobile-only household.• Consumers are using their smartphones to help them shop (Figure 2.4). More than half (57%) of smartphone users claim to have used their handset in some way when out shopping. This includes simple things such as taking a photo of a product (31%), to making online price comparisons (25%), acquiring more product information by scanning bar codes (21%), reading product reviews online (19%), and researching product features (19%). Figure 2.4: Use of Smartphones when shopping Took a picture of the product 31% Compared a price to a price online 25% Scanned a bar code to get more product info 21% Read product reviews online 19% Researched product features online 19% Used phone to redeem a mobile coupon 13% Searched for coupons or deals online 11% Any 57% 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Smartphone users (%) Source: Ofcom omnibus research, March 2012 Q: 8b Which, if any of the following activities have you ever done on your smartphone while out shopping?

  8. 8. • When asked where smartphone users are accessing the internet it is clear that a significant number are using this OOH (81%) – See Figure 2.5 Figure 2.5: Location of Mobile Internet Use Proportion of mobile data users Always use in the home, 6% Mainly use in the home, 12% Use equally inside and outside the home, 60% Mainly use outside the home, 15% Always use outside the home, 6% Source: Ofcom research, Q1 2012 Base: All adults aged 16+ who access the internet on their mobile phone• Particularly focusing on OOH, we can also see that Mobile Internet is used in multiple locations - See Figure 2.6 below. Figure 2.6 Location of Mobile Internet use when OOH Proportion of total mentions Other, 1% When travelling, 25% Indoor public spaces, 22% Outdoors, 21% At someone else’s house, 17% At work, 14% Source: Ofcom research, Q1 2012 Base: All adults aged 16+ who use mobile broadband outside the home• Roughly a third of all web searches have local intent. 85% of smartphone users have searched for local information and 81% have taken an action as a result.

  9. 9. Insight ToolsGeography of Time / IPA TouchpointsGeography of Time (GoT) is a project of two parts. A survey of 3,500 respondents from 5 major GBconurbations to gain insight into city life. Secondly, a PDA diary which recorded 1,200 diary days of consumers’activities. The PDA diary is similar to Touchpoints and analysing the two data sources can create some veryinteresting insight. Also the data from both surveys support each other, adding confidence in the results.Figure 2.7 and 2.8 below demonstrate how media consumption for OOH & TV accumulates during the day.From an OOH perspective we see that 50% of all those who travel have done so by 9am on a weekday (GoT).However it is not until 4.30pm on a weekday that 50% of those who watch Commercial TV have done so(Touchpoints). Therefore if brand messages (particularly offers) are intended to be seen by the target consumeron a specific day, OOH is ideal for this.Figure 2.7 – Speed of cover for OOH 11am 50% of consumers who100% Weekend travel have done so by 50%90% 9am 9am on a weekday and Weekday 50% 11am on a weekend80%70% 4.50pm 2.50pm Sat60% Weekday 90% 90%50% Weekday40% 4pm Saturday Sun30% Sunday 90%20%10% 0% 11:00 11:30 07:30 08:00 08:30 09:00 09:30 10:00 10:30 12:00 12:30 13:00 13:30 14:00 14:30 15:00 15:30 16:00 16:30 17:00 17:30 18:00 18:30 19:00 19:30 20:00 20:30 21:00 21:30 22:00 22:30 23:00 23:30Source: GoT Figure 2.8 – Speed of cover for Commercial TV 100 Commercial TV 4.30pm 90 Weekday viewing is continuous 1.30pm Sat/Sun 50% throughout the day. 80 Wednesday 50% 50% of consumers 70 9pm who watch commercial Saturday 60 Weekday TV have done so by Sunday 90% 4.30pm on a weekday 50 but earlier at weekends 40 30 20 8.30pm Sat/Sun 10 90% 0 10.29… 10.59… 12.29… 12.59… 10.29… 10.59… 7.00… 7.29… 7.59… 8.29… 8.59… 9.29… 9.59… 11.29… 11.59… 1.29… 1.59… 2.29… 2.59… 3.29… 3.59… 4.29… 4.59… 5.29… 5.59… 6.29… 6.59… 7.29… 7.59… 8.29… 8.59… 9.29… 9.59… 11.29… 11.59…Source: Touchpoints 2012Back to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 9
  10. 10. Smartphone Real World InteractorsThis was a joint UK/US research project with Clear Channel conducted in late Q1 2012. The researchprovides great insight into Smartphone users and their awareness, usage, perception and likely adoptionof Mobile Technologies such as Mobile Bluetooth, QR Codes, Visual Search, Augmented Reality andparticularly focusing on NFC.Figure 2.9 below demonstrates that consumers are most likely to interact with posters using NFC for“functional” reasons with 92% stating they would be likely to interact for at least one functional use.The top functions were perceived as “downloading vouchers/special offers” (85%), “Getting LocalInformation/Directions” (84%) and “Price Comparisons” (77%).Figure 2.9 – Reasons consumers would interact with a poster using NFCLINKING TO GAMING CONTENT 34% 69% PLAYFULINTERACTING JUST FOR FUN 67%LIKING/FOLLOWING A BRAND 45%CHECKING IN 52% 72% SOCIALSHARING CONTENT WITHSOMEONE 59%ENTERING A COMPETITION 57%BUYING SOMETHING 57% 92% FUNCTIONALADDING EVENTS TO YOUR CALENDAR 66%CAPTURING CONTACT DETAILS 66%DOWNLOADING AN APP 69%ACT AS A SHORTCUT 69% EASILYACCESSING CONTENT/WEB PAGES 76%COMPARING PRICES 77%GETTING LOCATION INFORMATION/DIRECTIONS 84%DOWNLOADING VOUCHERS/SPECIAL OFFERS 85%A full presentation can be found on the following link: Smartphone Real World InteractorsBack to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 10
  11. 11. Role of OOH in the Media MixWe are often asked how OOH can support other media. Using Touchpoints data, along with a collectionof case studies and other research sources, we can help demonstrate the benefits of using OOH withother media.Click on the following link for a presentation on how OOH and TV complement each other:OOH & TV: Complementary MediaBack to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 11
  12. 12. Media Owner Insight Projects 2012CBS Outdoor have been running their new online research panel named work, shop, play over the lastfew months. During this time they have gained insight on various product categories including Motors,Gaming, Alcohol and Beauty. They have also created a “State of the Nation” report on consumers’perceptions on the economy from mid 2012. For example below is a breakdown of what consumers’state they are spending their income on. WATE R BIL ILL L GAS B 24% Household Bills 19% Groceries £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ £ 29% Mortgage/Rent 5% Savings -£7% Debts 9% Leisure ? 7% OtherTo find out more about work.shop.play please give your Posterscope contact a call or email Russell Smitherdirectly at russell.smither@posterscope.comInteractive EuropeCBS Outdoor recently released the results of a major pan European quantitative and qualitative studyof 9,000 Europeans across 6 markets. This explored digital interactivity in the context of OOH whilstunderstanding both current and future behaviours.Please click on the following link to the full presentation: CBS Outdoor Interactive EuropeBack to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 12
  13. 13. Clear Channel Research Monitor (CCRM) has evolved. In a multi-media world, advertisers need tounderstand the role played by each media as part of their campaign. CCRM now encompasses all mediarunning alongside an OOH campaign, so it will provide insights into OOH within the context of other media.Clear Channel will collaborate with advertisers and their agency to provide insights which evaluate OOHas part of the multi-media campaign, whilst still demonstrating OOH’s contribution and unique reach indelivering a valuable and desirable audience as part of the communications mix.If you or your client is interested in finding out more about CCRM, please give your Posterscope contact acall or email Russell Smither directly at russell.smither@posterscope.comPrimesight have released a large number of tools (Primelife) that they use to help better plan and evaluateOOH campaigns.These tools include “Primeresponse” which provides insightful evaluation on measurements such asEPOS data, and uplifts in web traffic using Experian Hitwise data. Other tools include “Primemobile”which evaluates consumers’ awareness and attitudes towards OOH campaigns using Smartphone mobileresearch, and “Primedesign” which is a creative testing tool.For more information on these tools amongst others please give your Posterscope contact a call or emailRussell Smither directly at russell.smither@posterscope.comYou can also visit Primesight’s website at http://www.primesight.co.uk/toolsBack to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 13
  14. 14. Connected Commuter PanelJCDecaux’s mobile panel of 1,500 rail commuters from London/South East has continued to generateInsight across a wide number of categories. These include presentations on Finance, Motors, Travel,Fashion, Cosmetics, Impulse, Airlines, Home Entertainment and Insurance.To find out more about JCDecaux’s Connected Commuter panel, please give your Posterscope contact acall or email Russell Smither directly at russell.smither@posterscope.comNFC/QR Code Reading TestJCDecaux recently completed a 6 sheet mobile test in Reading with 13 advertisers.

Theproportion of these being by NFC was 10% over the full 4 week period but grew to 15% in the final4th week. There are also interesting insights on the time of day and location of interactions. Interactionspeaked during the evening commuter period, as well as most interactions taking place in the town centre.There are also learnings about consumer perceptions towards NFC which are very positive and promisingfor the future.To access the full presentation please click on the following link:JCDecaux NFC and QR Code Reading TestThis insight also supports and complements our own Smartphone Real World Interactors research, whichprovides a broader context for NFC and mobile technologies.Back to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 14
  15. 15. Data StoriesGoogle’s Cole Nussbaumer offers a primer on creative data visualization, the merger ofbrains and beauty that has taken the marketing world by storm.WORDS BY Cole NussbaumerI have a goal in life: To rid the world of bad PowerPoint slides. We’ve all sat through meetings, struggling to stayawake during presentations filled with cheesy stock images, confusing bar graphs, and pie chart after pie chart.This needn’t be so. Even the driest content can come to life – if it’s presented creatively.At Google, I teach everyone from marketers to engineers some basic principles of data visualization that help themturn numbers into compelling visual stories.Presenting data creatively can make numbers seem more human and turn statistics into stories. By ‘humanizing’data we can make those numbers – and hence the people and companies behind them – more transparent.Here are a few of the most resonant lessons that I teach in ‘Data Visualization 101’ at Google. Consider this yourcheat sheet to becoming a more creative data storyteller:http://www.thinkwithgoogle.co.uk/quarterly/creativity/data-stories.htmlBack to Contents page POSTERSCOPE MEDIA DIGEST - October 2012 15
