Influencer + OOH: A Powerful Combo for Gen Z Engagement

Published: August 24, 2023

The vanguards of the digital age, Generation Z, have become an undeniable focal point for advertisers. According to Bloomberg, this generation has a spending power of $360 billion, exerting a substantial and discernible impact on the economic landscape. 

In the midst of the evolution of social media and technology, Gen Z’s spending patterns and communication have diverged significantly from preceding generations. A Bulbshare report titled “Ad blockers and advocacy: Why Gen Z is blocking paid ads in favor of real voices” found that 99% of Gen Z consumers will hit ‘skip’ on an ad if it’s an option and that nearly two-thirds use ad blockers to avoid online adverts.


In response to this dilemma, advertisers have strategically adopted influencer marketing as a vehicle to promote their products and offerings. And for a very good reason, considering Gen Z inherently places trust in social media celebrities. Remarkably, 44% of Gen Zers make a purchasing decision based on a recommendation from a social influencer.

As one of the most popular social networks for Gen Z,  28% of TikTokers have bought products promoted by celebrities or influencers, which is 10% higher than non-TikTok users.

Yet, even as influencer marketing gains prominence with a substantial audience, a gap still exists in the advertising world. This gap becomes evident when Gen Zers leave their home. Offline ads are experiencing a significant resurgence since the global pandemic, and even Gen Zers are taking notice, with 85% having engaged with OOH ads. 


The combination of OOH advertising and influencer marketing can prove to be a potent mechanism to influence and engage younger generations - especially when they see their favorite TikTok influencer on a supersized screen. But how does this powerful combo come together?
