A good marketing plan should bolster a company’s business and sales while fitting within a pre-determined budget. For many businesses, outdoor billboard advertising is the ideal choice. It’s relatively low cost and it is highly visible to the majority of the public, so it makes a lot of sense to put their marketing budgets into outdoor advertising.
If you’ve been considering billboard advertising for your business, you may be unsure of where to start. It’s a fairly straightforward process, but it does require a little research and understanding at the onset. Read on to find out how to buy billboard advertising and why it may be the right move for your business.
Who Can (and Should) Buy a Billboard?
Any business in any industry can, and probably should, buy billboard advertising. Outdoor billboards are a great way to increase a company’s visibility. Plus, they’re typically simple to secure and can serve as a mouthpiece for a business with very little effort. As long as the content on the billboard adheres to local laws and regulations, as well as the advertising company’s standards, almost any company can benefit from outdoor advertising.
How Do You Buy Billboard Advertising?
Buying billboard advertising starts when you research the advertising companies that are in your area and the billboards that they offer. You’ll also want to look at what is being advertised in your area to get a feel for what is or isn’t working. You may not want to choose a billboard that is located very close to a competitor or in a location that doesn’t make sense for your product or service.
Once you’ve narrowed down the advertising company and location of the billboard, you should arrange for the appropriate leasing period during which your advertisement will be displayed. With that agreed upon, you’re ready to come up with a design for your ad, either in-house or with the assistance of the billboard company.
What’s the Best Location for a Billboard?
When determining the best location for a billboard, it’s important to consider your goals. If the goal of outdoor advertising is to direct potential customers to your business, then it makes sense to choose a location that promotes such. If your marketing goals are simply to raise brand awareness, then your location options open up.
Most billboards are located next to highways or interstates. Advertising companies like Saunders Outdoor Advertising have billboards in multiple states, giving their customers the opportunity to choose their ideal locations. If you aren’t sure of which location is right for your business’ needs, ask an advertising company to see what locations they have to offer. This can help you decide where you’d like to buy.
