4.2.13 Selling (Digital) Out of Home Products -> Product Search Plus

This feature is currently in development. The current release already offers part of the feature set, but we’re constantly enhancing this with the following releases, to make your sales process even easier.

ADvendio offers a variety of new features to support the selling of location based (digital) Out of Home products. Our Product Search Plus, allows you to configure Campaign Goals you want to reach and then shows you exactly which Items fit your needs and how many units will be available in the desired timeframe.

Requirements for using the Product Search Plus

To use these new features, first you will need to enable the Media Search Lightning. See this article for a detailed description of the steps to undertake: https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/617414822/8.4.5+Setup+and+Configure+the+Media+Search+for+Lightning

Second you will have to do some further configuration for the Media Search, details can be found here: https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/942309431/8.4.5.1+How+to+Configure+Media+Search+for+Content+and+Out+of+Home+features

 

Select your Target Location → Filtering for Contents

Once you enter the Media Search, in the Filter Section, you will find filters for your product classification, like Advertising Medium or Placement and below that a list of content specific filters.

You can use these to further narrow your campaign goals and find suitable products.

So what are these Content Filters about? Instead of searching for a product that belongs to a certain site or has a certain format, you are now looking for which content/locations are available to select.

Let’s use a simple example.

You have configured your content/locations with additional information such as which campaign goals can be reached, via the Target Group picklist. In this example our banner for the arrival area in Hamburg Airport is to be considered extremely suitable for a product push:

Now your Client is coming to you and requests a Campaign for a product push. You go into the Media Search and select the Target Group ‘Product Push’ as filter, from the content filters section.

Once you click the filter button, you will receive only products, with contents that are suitable for a Product Push. So for example the above shown location HAM - Banner (Arrival Area) is selectable for all products shown in the result list.

You can also use the filter field Content to explicitly filter for a specific content / location, this way only products that are available with this content will be shown.

Add to Basket and enter Media Configuration

To continue you can click the plus symbol to select the product you’d like to sell.

Once done, it will get added to your basket on the right side of the screen.

Congratulations, you now selected a product, which is available at locations, that are marked for Product Push. You can continue by clicking on the button start Media Configuration at the bottom of the screen, or change your filter criteria and look for additional products.

Exclusivity Check - See if your desired item is available and how many contents are available

For the general documentation of the Availability Check within the Media Search please take a look at this page: https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/617283880/4.1.4+How+to+use+the+Media+Search#id-4.1.4HowtousetheMediaSearch-CheckAvailability

The Content relevant information is written down right here:

When you put an Ad Price with connected Contents into the basket, the available contents will be taken over to the basket (If you can not see it ask your Administrator to enable it: Enable Selected Contents in the basket): 

By clicking on the  behind the number of selected Contents you will see the following modal displaying which Contents were selected and will be taken over to the Media Configuration where you could configure them.

Attention: at the moment, the Media Search filters on what content/locations are actually available. All available contents will be preselected. Once you enter the Media Configuration, you will need to use the https://advendio.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SO/pages/875364470/4.3.7+How+to+select+Contents+in+the+Media+Configuration to configure the specific contents/locations you need.
