Research we recently carried out into digital out-of-home partly supported the Kinetic/Clear Channel study, with over a quarter of respondents saying that some movement or animation was the most important factor in capturing their attention. However, even more – 35% – said relevance was the most effective asset.
These studies demonstrate that the most effective ads will be subtly animated, beautifully simple and as relevant as possible, whether to the target demographic, the time of day, or the location of the screen.
Flash isn’t everything and, as both studies have shown, digital screens shouldn’t be treated as if they were televisions.
