Ignite your Start-up Business with Street Pole Ads


Are Street Pole Ads worth it for start-up businesses?

When it comes to a new business, advertising is essential to get the word out there about your brand and to get established in your target market. If you are a new business, you may have heard that street pole ads are a cost-effective way of marketing but are they worth it, and should you do it? 

When launching a new business, you need to make an impact. If you want to get the public talking about your brand and establish a target market that’s ready to spend, look no further. Street Pole Ads are for you!


What are Street Pole Ads?

Simply put, street pole ads are a form of advertising on public roads, usually erected on street poles. The streetlights that line our roads and illuminate our city are an excellent opportunity for shared value creation. The city partners with businesses (large and small) to generate income and drive business. Street Pole Ads (or SPAs) offer compelling, creative, exciting solutions that support the community and boost your business.

Street Pole Ads or SPAs come in many shapes and forms, with strategic design and placement being integral to their success. For instance, if you have started a high-end beauty salon, the best place to erect your SPA campaign would be on a busy road in a nearby upper income neighbourhood. For maximum impact, your campaign should speak your audience’s language, using visual stimuli with graphics and colours that appeal to your potential market.

How does Street Pole Advertising work?

Street pole advertising is surprisingly effective and has a very low cost when compared with other advertising forms. After deciding on wording and a design for your street pole ad, you will need to consider how many you want printed, and where you would like your advert to be located. 

How to start your SPA campaign?

  1.   First consult with the experienced team at Adreach, to decide on your design, marketing message and placement for the perfect campaign.
  2.   Next, consider how many ads will fit your budget and where they would best be located.
  3.   Last, place your campaign and watch the magic unfold!


Unlike other forms of advertising, SPAs command attention. This results in massive exposure, especially if your ad has been placed on a busy road! 

What are the benefits of Street Pole Advertising? 

Many businesses should include street pole advertising when planning the execution of their marketing plan. SPAs offer numerous benefits, including:
