Let’s be honest.

We are not sexy, cool, or remotely entertaining.  We do not have legions of social media followers, nor do we really try to. Most OOH, point of care, and in-store media vendors wish we would move to Siberia and never be heard of again.

We are a 3rd party proof of performance company specializing in OOH & DOOH Advertising Audits.

Our clients frequently hate our reports but love that they hired us. We always give them valuable insight to their programs and typically save them a lot of money. If you suspect your OOH / DOOH, in-store, or promotion vendors may not be delivering what you paid for, then let’s talk. And by the way, we have 25 years of partnerships with our clients and we are not moving anywhere.

However, some OOH agencies continue to be in denial by not demanding standards for accurately determining 3rd party performance metrics where OOH operates – in the field. Unlike most other media, there has been an assumption by many outdoor advertisers and their agencies that once an OOH or DOOH program goes live, barring [...]

25 Years of Being “The Billboard Police”

February 5th, 2018|Comments Off on 25 Years of Being “The Billboard Police”

I was explaining a business plan I had in early 1993 with an outdoor industry veteran, when he quickly responded with “You’ll be The Billboard Police”. I hadn’t really thought about my new business idea in that context, as I simply wanted to provide OOH advertisers with a 3rd party pre-ride and post buy audit service without sales influence or a vested interest. Advertising agencies at that time were beginning to scale back the expense of sending OOH field reps on the road each week, and after spending 15 years as an OOH buyer/field rep, I knew first-hand the value of having outdoor locations evaluated and inspected the old fashioned way – by a trained representative in the car. It was that reason that I started building an independent field network with a handful of experienced outdoor people that had moved on to other pursuits, but wanted to stay involved in the industry. In the early days [...]
