Iced Coffee, a Starbucks Refresha® drink, a Frappuccino® blended beverage, or would you prefer Hot Coffee? Starbucks has taken advantage of what programmatic DOOH has to offer. In the German and French speaking parts of Switzerland, a digital outdoor advertising campaign within a 500-meter radius of the Starbucks Coffee Houses encouraged passersby to enjoy a refreshing drink or a warm coffee – depending on the weather. While the cold beverages were advertised in weather conditions of 13°C and above, additional advertising exposure took place when the sun was shining and temperatures were 25°C and above. Below 12°C, the Hot Coffee was used. Starbucks took advantage of the use of different time slots for the beverage types for an even more targeted broadcast.
«Thanks to the programmatic approach, we reach our target group at the right time and in the right place with the relevant product. This increases the effectiveness and efficiency of the campaign.»
TREE GUM was born with the mission to launch a plastic-free, 100% natural, sustainable, and Swiss-made chewing gum. TREE GUM chewing gums are naturally pure vegetable, 100% vegan, and guaranteed biodegradable. It is important to us that TREE GUM tastes great but is completely free from sugar, aspartame, plastic, artificial sweeteners, and flavors.
Aim of the campaign
The aim of the campaign was to introduce the Tree Gum brand to potential new customers as a natural alternative to conventional petroleum-based chewing gums. During a two-week test phase, Tree Gum chewing gums were listed in all Valora k-kiosks. In order to draw the attention of the target group and to encourage them to buy Tree Gum at the k-kiosk, targeted online display & native ads as well as Programmatic Digital Out of Home (PDOOH) spots were placed around the point-of-sales (POS).
Broadcast during peak hours
In the immediate vicinity of the POS
The PDOOH flights, the displays and native measures have helped to make the brand known to the target group as well as to drive sales in the k-kiosks, as well as in other sales locations, according to the statement.

Virtual Call of Duty goodies at Burger King
Burger King launched a programmatic campaign on DOOH screens in Switzerland, in cooperation with Call of Duty, to promote the reboot of the classic video game.
The campaign targeted an audience consisting of both gamers and fast food lovers, offering them gaming goodies with the purchase of a Whopper meal. The reward consists of a limited edition virtual Burger King outfit and 2XP (Experience Points), which can be redeemed via code in the new Call of Duty "Modern Warfare 2".
The campaign ran only during popular meal times (11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) and on screens in close proximity to Burger King restaurants.
Visits and purchases at Burger King were stimulated and the video game Call of Duty benefited from a great deal of attention during the campaign.

This advertising is weather dependent
When it's cold outside, the desire for raclette or fondue increases. The Coop Cooperative is promoting its raclette and fondue cheeses with a programmatic campaign.
Coop's programmatic DOOH campaign in the fall was particularly interesting due to special weather targeting. The advertising media were only played during precipitation or cloudy skies and temperatures below 12 degrees. In order to reach commuters in pedestrian zones, train stations and other locations, the time period between 4 and 8 p.m. was defined as an additional attribute during the week. On Saturday afternoons, weekend shoppers were addressed. Splicky of Jaduda GmbH and the media agency TWmedia supported Coop in implementing this campaign.
Coop was very pleased with the campaign, which took place at 130 locations over a two-month period. More than 15 million gross contacts were achieved in the process.
