Advertising Options with BlueBox

What could a $5.97 return per dollar invested in advertising mean to your business? According to a 2017 study conducted by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), this is the average ROI for out-of-home (OOH) advertising.

BlueBox smart vending machines are placed in premium, high-traffic locations to optimize customer convenience and maximize exposure for brands. The interactive kiosk’s digital out-of-home (DOOH) media capabilities connects consumers with brands through engaging advertising through high definition, digital signage showcasing sales, new products, events, etc.

OOH advertising is simply a traditional outdoor advertisement format, where the audience can view the ad at public places, transportation spots, routes, commercial spaces, etc.

DOOH advertising, on the other hand, is an amalgamation of offline OOH advertising with the addition of digital elements in it. It uses digital screens to deliver content to the people through elevator screens, digital billboards, and television screens.

The difference in both is that in OOH, the ad remains fixed in its place with a single image over some time. Whereas, in DOOH, the advertisement is displayed via digital screens with multiple animated images and stays there for a short time. DOOH advertising can interact with people, making it a more energetic, interactive, and vivacious advertisement source.



Our advertising options allow brands to maximize exposure while providing customers convenient, easy access to products.

All of these capabilities help draw consumers to the machine and to your brand’s advertisements.
