Interactive Advertising in Airports Opens Up New Opportunities

Posted: March 25, 2017

Airport retailers are jumping on the interactive airport advertising bandwagon, with great results. San Francisco International Airport is just one of the airports currently using interactive technology to create unique user experiences for travelers.

Advertising via digital screens allows companies to create an interactive experience for buyers, without bringing in extra employees. Travelers have the option of learning more about a product or service immediately. There’s no waiting for an employee to become free and each person can experience personalized advertising screens.

While a number of companies are now using this technology to hone their customer service and create a tailored shopping experience for buyers, airport advertisers are finding it particularly useful. The technology permits companies to share more information than through traditional airport advertising methods. As a result, companies are seeing drastic increases in sales, leaving no doubt that customers prefer this type of interaction.

One such example is See’s Candy at San Francisco International Airport. The store offers a large screen above a display of items from the company, including marketing and branding. When a shopper waves a hand over a display section, they are presented with information on the specific exhibit piece. The screen has boosted sales and improved customer education. The same results can be seen in other shops using similar techniques to interact with customers through technology.

For companies interested in building a customer base via digital advertising screens in airports, there are opportunities in a range of airports, both large and small, around the world. Thanks to the low cost of technology like the digital advertising screens being used, it’s possible to scale the methods as needed. Advertisers don’t have to limit themselves to just one airport or even one section of the airport. Instead, they can capitalize on repeated exposure and build up a customer base built on trust and knowledge.

Education and personalization are what make this type of digital airport advertising so successful. Technology, used correctly, can result in some pretty big gains for advertisers around the world.

The digital billboards provide a more interactive experience for the viewer and ensure that attention is paid to the announcements made.

In today’s busy world, it’s essential to catch a viewer’s attention and target them specifically. This is where digital airport advertising thrives . . . with customized messages. For example, if someone is waiting to pick up their luggage in the baggage claim, the message can be aimed directly at their current needs and wants. Likewise, a traveler going through customs will have a different message to respond to.

Tailoring content to the specific traveler needs throughout the airport is what gives digital advertisers an edge in this market. Add in the fact that travelers tend to have similar needs and you can come up with a marketing plan that will reach its target market faster and easier with digital airport ads.

Digital advertising is a rapidly growing industry and has only recently reached airports. With New Zealand airports picking up on the trend, ads will only become more customized from here on out. In the near future, billboards and digital screens will check mobile devices on individuals to glean information and present those viewers with a very specific ad. Targeted marketing has never been so specific.

Along with digital signage, WiFi ads and mobile phone advertising are also on the rise throughout New Zealand. For companies, this means more personalized access to targeted markets and a higher level of sales conversions. Digital airport advertising is here to stay and it will only become more specific to the needs of both the advertiser and the viewer. Companies can take advantage of this to reach their target audience and guide them to their purchase.

Digital Signs: A Normal Part of Airport Advertising

Posted: March 8, 2017

It used to be that the only digital signs you would spot in an airport were the ones offering information on arrivals and departures. That’s changed drastically in recent years.

The prime travel season starts in spring and airports tend to become more active during the spring and summer months. More people are traveling for pleasure during this time, rather than business, making it simple to aim digital airport advertising campaigns at these travelers. Airports have discovered the usefulness of having screens and digital signage available.

The screens are perfectly situated to reach a captive audience . . . those who are sitting in an airport for hours on end as they wait for their flight.

A particularly useful addition to many airports is the digital information kiosk. These way finding kiosks are interactive in some cases and provide information on how to get from one area to the next in the most direct manner.

When it comes to digital signage, companies have a terrific opportunity to reach travelers through digital airport advertising. A single ad placed before a video or informative bulletin can make a big impact and airport advertising is quite effective, thanks to the ease of identifying the target market. All the company has to do is present a great ad in order to capture the traveler’s attention.

Digital signs are no longer a surprise. They’ve become part of the travel experience and that’s a good thing, for both travelers and advertisers.

International Airport Advertising Opens Up Further with New Flights

Posted: June 08, 2017

Fort Lauderdale airport will soon have nonstop flights to San Jose, Costa Rica on a daily basis. The addition of a daily flight means a drastic uptick in the number of travelers heading to the tropical country and it opens up more avenues for airport advertising, both at national airports and international ones.

At the moment, Southwest’s Costa Rica flights are only available three times a week and require between one and three stops on the way, depending on the day. For travelers hoping to spend a weekend in the tropical country, it’s a long trip and the multiple changes of planes can be off-putting. With this in mind, the new non-stop flights will be offered shortly, along with routes to Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos.

Southwest Airlines has been flying out of Fort Lauderdale airport for years, but the airline anticipates expanding their options to Central America even further in the future. This means big things for companies interested in marketing to Latin Americans and international travelers.

International airport advertising will see even more eyes as the flights increase. With non-stop flights on offer, more and more people will be taking the opportunity to head south for warmer climates, particularly in the winter. In addition, business people from around the world will be heading to conferences and retreats in these tropical countries.

More access to Central America for travelers means more eyes on marketing campaigns in foreign countries. As nonstop flights make it simpler to explore the world, airport advertising can also expand and reach more markets. Fort Lauderdale’s airport advertising can now expand to include more international travelers than ever before.
