Fliphound, the first online bidding platform for outdoor digital billboards, today launched services in the northern New Jersey and New York metro areas with Coastal Outdoor, a leading independent billboard operator. Through this partnership, Coastal Outdoor’s advertising clients can leverage Fliphound’s real-time online bidding platform to run ads on digital billboards. More than 325 advertisers are already using Fliphound across the nation, and today’s partnership launch with Coastal Outdoor will further expand Fliphound’s reach to potential advertisers.
“Coastal Outdoor has successfully created a large network of quality advertisers in the northern New Jersey and the New York metro areas, and we’re looking forward to helping them grow their billboard business through our Fliphound platform,” said Douglas M. Robertson, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Fliphound. “Over 82% of our customers are new to the outdoor billboard advertising market, and so we’re helping grow and transform this industry by moving billboard advertisers quickly to digital.”
“We believe Fliphound’s platform will make our digital billboards more accessible to advertisers who want to tap into the over 10 million residents in the greater New Jersey and New York metro area. We’ve found at Coastal Outdoor that media companies and professionals are increasing the percentage of their budgets dedicated to digital outdoor as part of their overall advertising and online programs,” said Frank Nataro, President of Coastal Outdoor.
"We needed an easy way to reach our local market in New Jersey and increase awareness of our organization. Fliphound has made it incredibly easy and cost efficient for us to increase the awareness for our cause through digital billboard ads served by their platform," said Tracey Dupree, Executive Director of Focus Autism.
The digital billboard advertising industry is growing and Fliphound is a cloud-based platform that allows operators to access new online customers and tap into the $53 billion digital advertising industry, which is 70 times the size of the current $0.7 billion digital outdoor industry (source eMarketer 2013). As the first real-time online-bidding platform for digital billboards, advertisers get complete control of their campaigns in Fliphound by simply choosing the outdoor billboard locations and setting bidding prices, uploading their content and making a payment. Fliphound compiles real-time playlists for digital billboards based on bidders input and uploads the ads to the digital billboards in real-time. Fliphound provides advertisers with online access to premium and affordable outdoor digital billboards. With Fliphound, ads can be live in minutes, advertisers can start, stop and change campaigns at any time offering the flexibility to run campaigns for day, a week, or longer term.
