Promotion for advertising on billboards!
Companies often look for new ways to advertise and promote their products and services. Effective advertising methods vary between different types of business and industries, so there is not one right way. To find out whether advertising advertising is suitable for your business, consider both advantages and disadvantages.
Several advantages and disadvantages of this type of advertising:
Advantage # 1: People will exactly see your ad
Since billboards are usually placed along motorways and busy streets, you are guaranteed that people will exactly see your advertisement. In addition, unlike commercials or magazine ads, you can not flip the channel or turn the page on the billboard. So people will notice the billboard, whether they like it or not. Another additional advantage is that many people go on the same route several times, for example, with their trip to work every day. This means that they will regularly see your billboard, which makes the best memorization of the advertising message.
Advantage # 2: Individual accommodation
You can place advertising on billboards wherever, in your opinion, it will have the greatest impact. This can be a big advantage when you have a business in which you want to attract traffic immediately from an exit on a certain route, or you have a showroom just on the road. You can also use billboards in areas where it is difficult to reach the necessary audience. Examples are rural farming communities that spread over great distances. By placing advertisement of a billboard along one of the main roads around the community, you will significantly increase your visibility.
Disadvantage # 1: messages should be short
On average, a person will see your billboard for about two to three seconds. This means that you need to keep messages short and accurate. Billboards are better when they focus more on images than on text. In addition, billboards are often seen by people passing by. Because they are in motion, this makes it difficult to read them. Therefore, any text written on the billboard should be large enough to read them easily.
Disadvantage # 2: Long-Term Commitment
Companies offering to place advertising on billboards often tend to conclude contracts with long-term obligations. Basically, this is due to the fact that changing the advertising message takes a lot of time, energy and money. Contracts for billboards usually cover three months. This makes advertising on billboards less favorable for businesses that often change their advertising campaigns weekly or monthly. Advertising on billboards works best for advertising of all business and brands, than for temporary emergencies and sales.
