    Integrating OOH and Connected TV

    In the evolving landscape of global marketing, the resurgence of Out-of-Home (OOH) and Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising, coupled with the emergence of Connected TV, is revolutionizing our approach at Twelve Three Media. OOH and DOOH advertising break through digital noise by offering tangible, unavoidable presences in physical spaces, with DOOH adding the dynamism of real-time, context-sensitive content. These mediums are transforming into interactive experiences, blending the physical and digital worlds in unique, attention-grabbing ways.

    Connected TV further elevates our strategy by combining the immersive experience of traditional television with the precision of digital advertising. This innovative approach allows for targeted, data-driven campaigns within the engaging format of TV, bridging the gap between traditional and digital media. By integrating these mediums, we create comprehensive campaigns that ensure high visibility and engagement, offering our clients a multi-faceted approach that effectively reaches consumers across various touchpoints in their daily lives.

    Optimizing for Voice Search

    A major trend we're concentrating on now is optimizing our site for voice search. While the use of voice search has somewhat stabilized, it remains one of the top five ways people inquire on their phones, often seeking local information.

    This trend has significantly shaped our global marketing strategy. Recognizing the growing reliance on voice search, we've adapted our website's content to be more conversational and question-based, aligning with how people naturally speak. We've also focused on including location-specific keywords, as many voice searches are local in nature. Understanding that voice search results need to be concise and direct, we've worked on providing clear, straightforward answers in our content.

    Influencer Partnerships Drive Strategy

    The emergence of global brands partnering with social media influencers undeniably shaped my approach to becoming an influencer myself. Witnessing the success and impact of these collaborations inspired me to delve into the realm of influencer marketing as a strategic component of my own business.

    Recognizing the potential to align with brands that resonate with my values and preferences, I decided to curate partnerships with products and services that I genuinely enjoy and believe in. This trend has not only allowed me to authentically connect with my audience but also fostered mutually beneficial relationships with brands seeking to leverage the reach and authenticity of influencers in their marketing endeavors. Through this strategy, I aim to create a symbiotic synergy where both myself and the brands I collaborate with can thrive in the dynamic landscape of social media marketing.

    Leveraging AI for Content Adaptation

    The advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, especially chatbots such as ChatGPT, has revolutionized our ability to quickly and strategically adapt our content. We are not only able to quickly convert our blog content into other distribution formats (e.g., email, social media) but also modify our messaging to speak to different target audiences. For example, we can use AI to reframe the same piece of content in contexts that interest either preclinical researchers or executive-level decision-makers. In summary, the appropriate use of AI can quickly provide market intelligence insights that drive customer understanding, enabling the creation of compelling marketing campaigns that ultimately drive sales.
