JCDecaux launches Australia’s first digital out-of-home advertising e-learning platform

Out-of-home media company JCDecaux has officially launched its e-learning course JCDecaux ACADEMY – an industry-first, market-leading, supplier-agnostic program, designed to foster understanding and awareness of the power of digital out-of-home advertising.

The course is free, and includes real-life examples, case studies and key takeaways from advertising activity in Australia and around the globe.

Max Eburne, JCDecaux chief commercial officer, said: “Digital out-of-home has exploded in Australia over the last 12 months, with digital revenues accounting for almost 60 per cent of total out-of-home revenue. However, whilst media owners have invested billions of dollars in converting analogue (paper) sites to digital screens, campaigns are often executed in an analogue manner. This means the channel isn’t being used to its fullest potential, with value being left on the table for brands and their agencies.  The JCDecaux Academy aims to change this by educating and upskilling the wider industry.”

Essie Wake, JCDecaux chief marketing officer, said: “As the industry’s favourite brand-building media becomes more digital, targeted and addressable, we wanted to share everything media agencies and marketers need to know now, to stay ahead of the curve and fully leverage the promise of the digital out-of-home channel in 2022. And it won’t take an age to complete either – it’s ten concise modules, made up of bite-sized 15-minute videos, jam packed with great real-life examples, case studies and takeouts from Australia and across the globe.”

The free course covers a variety of subjects including public and private media, media planning in today’s world, making creative impacts with digital out-of-home, creating outdoor digital audiences, programmatic trading, and measurement and optimisation.

JCDecaux ACADEMY has launched with a marketing campaign featuring different characters to showcase its relevance for all industry professionals looking to tackle data-led targeting, understand creative nuance or seek new strategic solutions. Participants can register now on the official JCDecaux Academy website.
