The results were surprising: 74% think the coronavirus pandemic will have a larger impact on their advertising spend than the 2008 financial crisis. According to the President of Interactive Advertising Bureau, David Cohen, “Typically marketers will press pause for a moment, take a breath, assess the situation, replay and reevaluate.”

Bag Advertisement will be more effective than traditional methods
Billboards are not attractive advertising methods. Most digital ads creation companies have put a temporary stop on ads creation. A reasonable overview of the current crisis wrought by the COVID-19 spread shows that making new ad videos may just end up as a waste of time and money for the ad shoot companies as well as it is for the owners of the business. In the coming weeks, ad buyers in the USA will tilt towards new advertising ideas the more. All methods of advertising that serve as workable alternatives to OOH advertising will shine as saviors. And they’ll shine the more if they provide equally satisfying results for the clients.
Pharmacy Bag Advertising will still be an effective method. Pharmacies are considered essential business and they will be less affected by the lock down. The trend is to see a higher traffic of consumers going to pharmacy chains to buy overall medicine and groceries.
By the end of the crisis, billboard companies may not only be counting their losses in billions of dollars, many of their customers might have moved on to embrace other more pocket-friendly advertising alternatives. These alternatives are indoor-directed, and have proven to be equally effective, perhaps even more effective than the conventional outdoor methods. Aside from the fact that they are more expensive, it is difficult to track engagement for out-of-home ads. In fact, small businesses face more challenges trying to get a marketing space in the highly competitive ad industry.
While the OOH industry will decline, Pharmacy bag Advertising will emerge as an effective advertising method that will make your consumer associate your brand with healthcare.
Bag Advertisement is usually applied by niche advertising agencies that aim to overcome traditional methods of advertising to get the attention of consumers. Traditional advertising has been witnessing a decline in the effectiveness so there is a greater demand for point-of-sale communications and its ability to offer precise audience targeting.
Another factor that contribute to the success of agencies using bag advertising is the smart way to retain consumers attention as marketers target on creating an cognitive stimulus that evokes surprise by placing ads in unusual locations and with unconventional methods that had never used before.
Similar method can be used for consumables as door hangers, pizza box toppers, prescription bags, drink coasters, Custom Coffee Sleeves, hotel key cards, valet tickets, restaurant placemats and dry cleaner hangers.
