The new guidelines also update existing best practice for the Digital Out of Home era (DOOH). This includes:
- The measurement of DOOH.
- Contemporary data for automated trading and attribution.
- Cross-Media Measurement practice.
The guidelines were created with worldwide collaboration from 11 audience measurement bodies (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and the US); two regional bodies (China and Latin America); and four international OOH companies (JCDecaux, Clear Channel, Talon and Posterscope.)
A WOO working party was headed up by ESOMAR Guidelines chairperson, Neil Eddleston, and collated and written by WOO Measurement Consultant, Gideon Adey.
“The new guidelines are a living document to be regularly updated with new developments and techniques as appropriate,” the working party emphasised.
Richard Saturley, Chief Marketing Officer for the WOO, said: “Audience measurement is one of the keys to growing the medium and we’re enormously grateful to Gideon Adey and Neil Eddleston for their work in bringing us up to date for the digital age of measurement. The whole industry will now be much better equipped for future growth.”
