Digital outdoor advertising (DOOH): how to create it?

Looking for a way to promote your business interactively? Pay attention to outdoor DOOH advertising. Digital screens exist in the real world, separate from gadgets and social networks, so outdoor advertising is a new way to capture the attention of many consumers.

Outdoor advertising (OOH) shows high interaction results for brands and companies. And the digital component gives the advertising channel almost superpowers: to be where the audience often spends their time, to show relevant ads, and to process interaction metrics in real-time. Digital out-of-home (DOOH) mainly operates on OOH through AdTech - geofencing, tracking, retargeting, personalisation, attribution, and measurement.

Looking to create an effective ad for outdoor advertising? You're in the right place! Introducing the professional team at BannerBoo, who have developed a simple and convenient service for creating any design. What's more, they've created 12,000+ ready-made HD templates that can easily be adapted to business needs and launched into DOOH digital advertising networks.

Power of DOOH

To fully understand the power of DOOH, analyse the following statistical data (information from

  • 98% of consumers saw at least one DOOH format in the last 30 days;

  • 84% of consumers recall the specific advertisement they saw on DOOH;

  • 55% of the Gen-Z generation stated that they remembered an advertisement, while older generations (millennials – 46%, boomers – 26%) have a lower level of recall.

And now, onto the advantages of the DOOH advertising format:

Profitability, dynamism and flexibility

On digital displays, you can alternate the display of advertisements, within one place or banner, which optimises revenue for the owner of the media unit and helps marketers save costs on creating advertising materials. One media block is viewed by several audiences at the same time, so the business gets a multiplier effect of views.

Synergy of offline activity with online component

DOOH can take any form. For example, kiosks with advertising displays are installed on the sides of roads. These are not just connected to the internet, they also serve as free public Wi-Fi access points. There are more opportunities to connect DOOH to mobile devices, naturally, with dynamic display.

More accurate indicators and measurements

Most DOOH platforms provide analytics on advertising performance by: target, location of the ad display, playback time for each ad, total costs, etc. If compared to a traditional billboard, DOOH provides more details and information.

Using high-quality multimedia

Create a powerful combination of local advertising and impulsive purchasing behaviour. High-quality imagery, thoughtful messaging, swift and unobtrusive communication with advertising in a convenient location. With DOOH, you create something more than just advertising. It's a real story.

High return on investment

In digital, there are far more possibilities (than in traditional formats), which, combined with low development costs and the potential for high efficiency indicators, turns DOOH into a desirable advertising channel for most businesses. This leads to significantly higher return on investment (ROI).

Resistance to the impact of the surrounding environment

All modern digital displays are weather-resistant, and advertising can be played all year round. Of course, screens can suffer from vandalism, but built-in security cameras and alarms will help solve this problem.

How to create DOOH advertising

With BannerBoo, you can easily create advertising that will stand out amongst competitors and will definitely be noticed by the target audience. However, first, a few factors need to be taken into account: audience representatives, content, and campaign creation purpose.

What should be considered in creating DOOH advertising?

Advice from the BannerBoo team:
Technical specifications

Technical specifications

The media buyer will provide you with the necessary information to consider when creating visual creativity. This way, the advertising will be placed and framed as effectively as possible.
Balance of contrast and colour

Balance of contrast and colour

To keep people's attention on advertising, use only optimal colours and colour schemes. But do not forget: contrast is needed for visibility and emphasis.
KISS method

KISS method

Keep it simple: we take the basic structure of the content (title, subtitle, and call to action) and limit the word count to 8 - that's it! The effective advertisement is ready to launch.
Typography rules

Typography rules

Certain fonts translate poorly into digital formats (for example, italics), especially if it's too thin.
Clear call to action (CTA)

Clear call to action (CTA)

URL addresses, hashtags or messages like "visit our shop" – these are good calls to action, but only if they are understandable to potential customers. Experiment with CTAs.


Only own or licensed, without watermarks or pixel graphics.
Context and relevance matter.

Context and relevance matter.

The advertisement should fit into the real surrounding world. Consider these factors when planning your advertising display: time of day, traffic, location, and weather can enhance audience engagement with the advertisement.


QR codes, augmented or virtual reality, can undoubtedly enhance the level of user interaction. Remember, DOOH is a different environment, so take advantage of this technology!

Frequently asked questions about DOOH advertising

What is digital outdoor advertising?

DOOH (Digital Out-of-Home) is a combination of offline advertising (OOH) with digital capabilities. These are digital screens for broadcasting content in lifts, airports, train stations, shopping centres, on the street and so on.

Which outdoor advertising is the most effective?

There is no definitive answer to the question: which advertising format is the most effective. As always, it depends on the target audience, their needs and expectations, advertising opportunities and marketing budgets. You need to test and analyse the results to obtain relevant data on effectiveness.

What makes DOOH advertising successful?

Effective advertising is that which meets the needs and demands of the target audience. Also, the placement is critically important, as it is worth displaying advertising where there is good traffic of potential customers.
Also check for the presence of:
  • visual brand identity (logo, brand colours, graphic elements etc);
  • clear proposition (what and to whom you are offering, how to use it, what you need to know);
  • stylish and modern graphic elements;
  • interactive features and animation.

What is the difference between outdoor and digital advertising?

Outdoor advertising includes more static advertising tools: posters, billboards, city lights, and so on. Digital advertising involves multimedia screens that broadcast real-time advertising announcements from brands.

What is Programmatic DOOH?

Programmatic DOOH is an advertising technology that automates the purchasing process at the right time and place among companies offering placement.
