Putting an advert on a billboard

When businesses think about outdoor advertising,  They think that its out of reach for local budgets.  Very few small businesses would consider putting an advert on a billboard for promoting themselves. But the traditional billboard has always been used by businesses of all sizes to reach out to local people.

Why should local businesses put an advert on a billboard?

Billboard advertising is constantly evolving. There are more adverts on billboards in more locations, showing more messages than ever. Digital Outdoor advertising has become more prevalent and is a game changer. Local businesses are flocking to the more traditional paper and paste billboard advert as availability and prices are more reachable. Here’s how outdoor advertising is delivering huge benefits for local businesses.


An advert on a billboard is “Free” 

Yes, you read it correctly. Consumers pay to access TV channels, buy newspapers, subscribe to online media channels or mobile apps. More importantly, You don’t need anything to watch a billboard ad. All that is required is the consumers’ presence.

With people spending more than 70 percent of their time out of their homes, billboard viewers will always be present.


Billboards build loyalty, credibility and trust

People like to feel like they belong to something. By having your brand on a tangible form of media that locals see every day, you become a natural part of that community. No other advertising format can give you this sort of brand building on such a frequent basis.

Your competitors are offering the same services as you, online or in magazines. Facebook advertising is a popular place for promotion.

On the other hand, the limited nature of billboard advert spaces means that your company can still build an exclusive presence in certain locations. Signposting potential customers next to your showroom, for example.

There’s also a strong belief that businesses who have a physical presence, such as on a billboard, Seem more credible than businesses that are seen advertising online. This feeling has been strengthened more recently due to the rise of fake news online. Just think of the credibility that an advert on a billboard would have on a potential customer.
