Here’s How LED Streamers are Redefining Digital Outdoor Advertising in Lahore

Today’s advertisers face a major challenge. As the average attention span of a consumer continues to shrink more and more, its very difficult for advertisements to connect and resonate with their target audience in an effective manner.

This is where active media such as Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising comes in, helping to capture the interest and emotions of today’s more socially-conscious and increasingly mobile consumer.

Given this highly mobile consumer, influencing their purchasing decisions is easier said than done. What is needed is a highly visible form of advertisement that can help brands sway their consumers their way.

Enter LED Streamers

When we talk about tapping into today’s consumer, we are going to talk about the biggest, most visible and prominently digital way of doing it – with LED streamers.

LED streamers, especially if they are installed at some of the most commercial thoroughfares in the city, can increase business and commercial activity. A survey by MOVE has also shown the same.

Imagine an LED Streamer being installed in Lahore, one of the busiest cities in Pakistan, Lahore is more than just the country’s cultural capital, and that makes it perfect for the use of LED Streamers. These streamers cover a distance of 1,500 meters, attracting a large number of customers from far and wide when it comes to advertising and marketing messages.

Advertising in Numbers

The LED Streamers have been placed on Model Town Link Road, Kasuri Road and MM Alam road. In a city of 15 million people, these commercial areas are the most popular in Lahore.

Lets talk about Model Town first. It is a posh area that is home to 100,00 people. The area is also home to a lot of shops and big brands. Thousands of people go through this route given that Major Hypermarts such as Metro, Victoria, TGS and more are connected via the link road. So you can imagine, the traffic that goes from Model Town to Johar Town and many other adjoining areas on a daily basis is astronomical to say the least.

Now lets get to Kasuri Road. There are numerous shops all along the route, catering to a wide audience who want to purchase anything from groceries to electronics to clothes. Just imagine the customers strolling around, not sure about what to buy at the numerous shops in the area. But if they were to see an LED streamer that serves dynamic and engaging ads at a glance, most of these potential customers could be converted into sales right away. Brand recall at its finest.

To get a rough estimate, MOVE conducted a research and found that an average of 50,000 to 60,000 cars commute using the M.M. Alam Road alone. A DOOH advertising platform in that particular area can reach up to 850,000 people and have over 4.5 million impacts.

Essentially, there are a total of four key battlegrounds for a consumer to overcome:

  • Initial consideration set
  • Active evaluation
  • Moment of purchase
  • Postpurchase experience & loyalty loop

In all of the phases, a digital advertisement persuades them into taking action. Active media such as LED streamers can make those sales count in highly commercial areas. Given how much potential is left untapped when it comes to the advertising industry in Pakistan, LED streamers can definitely usher in a revolution in this area.

    Looks nice, and will only work with electricity, which often comes and goes !!!

    • They have their own power backup

      • FD

        How much did each streamer consumes electricity?

    • Waseem Malik

      These pole signs runs on generators, not on Wapda electricity so no issue of power interruption
      .

  • Stupidity. Punjab government is crazy about lighting City by compromising road safety.

    • You Mean : City Of Light is Become LAHORE Instead of Karachi ???

      • Omer

        True…. According to new figures lahore is now home of 14 million people. And karachi is standing at 17millions. The difference between the population of two cities decreased in last few years. Specially in shahbaz sharif era. If the situation remain same lahore may come equal to karachi in no. Of people .

        Reasons are political in my point of view. No body is willing to own karachi right now. While shahbaz sharif have given many mega projects to lahore in last 9 years

        • continuedhere

          according to wikipedia karachi has 27 million people and lahore 10 million. we won’t know for sure until the results of the census are published. you know the census that has been going on for months now :)?

          • Omer

            A week ago a news channel reported this. And that news channel was reffering the figures from census 2017. Its complete now. Just not official for now.
            According to that news channel population of pakistan is 219 million. And population of punjab is

            • continuedhere

              seems like you forgot to conclude your comment. i’ll wait until the results are made public. i’m sure the armed forces will be changing some numbers around for national security reasons.

            • continuedhere

              the provisional results have been made public and the population of the country is 207.8 million not 219 million. we still don’t know how many people live in the cities though. final results will be made public in 2018.

      • ahmed

        Yes, Lahore Lahroe aye thanks to Mian SS, he made Lahore the best city of Pakistan. Islamabad is some exception i know. But with 12 Million population its really hard effort.

        • continuedhere

          La Whore

      • AW AC

        Yes boss.

    • ahmed

      Road safety is the project going on, Camera are being installed will be working soon.

      • Gemini

        You simply didn’t understand what he is trying to say. Billboards and Signboards are a type of road hazard just read any developed countries rule book for road safety and hazards you will know why they are considered as road hazards.

    • Just saying everything is not to be blamed. Road safety measures have to be taken individually as well by acting as a responsible driver.

      Also these streets on which these led streamers have been placed have an average speed of 25km/hr

      In the advertising world a private company invested millions to make a city look pretty and advanced.

      • continuedhere

        they invested millions to make money not for the public’s benefit. instead of having one advertiser per billboard you can have many. the potential for profits increases substantially.

  • Naya Pakistan K Bad Ab Paish Hai Naya LAHORE :

  • Muhammad Hassan Iqbal

    I am from karachi, so there is no bill board. Recently visit lahore and seeing each and every bill board with surprise instead of driving. And in my opinion city look much better without bill board.

  • continuedhere

    I believe the courts banned all outdoor advertising in Karachi or this innovation would have come here first.

  • Sulaiman Lalani

    where customers engaged, accidents takes place

  • Amjad Mukhtar

    EK cheez similar thi Lahore aur Karachi me Light nhi thi last mint. video me…

    50,000 – 60,000 cars per day?
    850,000 people per month?
    4.5 million impacts per???

    Please be specific.
