Outdoor ADEX

AIM started monitoring outdoor advertising expenditure in 2011. The monitoring of all outdoor sites are done via photo-taking every quarter. These photographs coupled with an integrated research system built specifically for AIM, allows us to fully utilize the acquired data. From each photograph, we compile information such as type of format, size, location, media owner, advertiser, brand, product, as well as cost for rental, lighting and production. A total of 26 types of data are collected from each OOH advertising photo.

Ever since, the area of coverage has been increased consistently to better reflect the true value of OOH advertising.

AIM research model for OOH advertising is akin to conducting a census. No generalization of small sample sizes back to the larger population; we measure the entire “population” of outdoor advertisement to maximize the validity of the data, whilst minimizing errors.

How comprehensive is the information generated by AIM Research?
