Accretive Media is the premier Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) solution for brands and agencies that want to make a real impact with consumers in the real world. Advertising can be simple, if we let it be. DOOH connects brands to consumers on their terms, where they spend the majority of their time.
With screens in over 160,000 venues across the United States, Accretive Media delivers first-of-its-kind addressability and accountability to the DOOH space, creating new and unique opportunities for brands to engage high value consumers within this proven, high value format.
Today’s digital and traditional advertising struggles to truly connect with consumers. In an overly complicated advertising ecosystem, media providers either cast too wide a net or are way too intrusive, turning off consumers. Accretive Media’s Data-Driven DOOH™ balances intelligent targeting with mainstream appeal, leveraging rich deterministic information to make outdoor messages impactful, targeted, and real.
When we were building the Accretive Media concept, our goal was simple and our mission was clear.
Use the latest in artificial intelligence to build a disruptive technology platform that leverages machine-learning principles borrowed from leading SaaS software providers that are underpinned by blockchain technology to create a transformative cloud-based engine where thought leaders and innovators can converge upon the notion that augmented and virtual reality can create a better future for advertisers.
Just kidding. How ridiculous does that sound? But every single one of those buzzwords are used in one way or another in one startup or another. While our platform is highly complex, we have a very different approach and goal.
Out-of-home is great, it’s a high reach and high impact medium. The screens are big and bright and beautiful. You don’t have to deal with fraud, viewability, or ad blockers. It’s a timeless, futureproof way to advertise. The problem is, the targeting and measurement in out-of-home is NOT GOOD. That is…up until now. Accretive Media offers brands the best targeting and measurement in out-of-home, period. And you’ll never need to deal with fraud or viewability issues. Let us prove it to you.
Much better, right? Once you eliminate the gimmicks, the jargon, and the nonsense, advertising becomes straight forward. It’s about connection, it’s about consumers. I’ve spent the last 12 years helping brands win by connecting them with the targeted consumers they care about using digital media. And this is the evolution of that work.
