The internet has changed the way companies advertise, and traditional advertising methods, such as newspaper and magazine inserts, are being attacked by their digital counterparts
However, one advertising method has stood the test of time, and that method is outdoor advertising.
Read further to discover what outdoor (or out-of-home: OOH) advertising is, its benefits, why it’s still effective, and how Adreach can help you with your business Outdoor Marketing Campaign.
What is Outdoor Advertising?
Most people are familiar with outdoor advertising (or out-of-home advertising) because they see large billboards and other marketing methods all around them.
Outdoor Advertising refers to any advertising form that you’re likely to see when you step out of your home.
Whether the advert is a sticker on the side of someone’s car or on a giant billboard in your city’s busiest intersection, these are all examples of outdoor advertising.
This marketing medium remains an effective marketing medium amidst new marketing channels like digital advertising, entering the fray.
Why Outdoor Advertising still effective
Brute force, in-your-face advertising
Think billboards that tower over cityscapes and cavalries of street pole ads. Outdoor advertising continues to make an impact, even more so post-pandemic.
Outdoor media offers strategic, hyper-localised advertising
Small independent businesses and national chains alike can rely on this effective marketing medium for results, attracting attention to events, creating mouth-watering desire for meals, or directing customers right to their doorsteps.
Outdoor Advertising offers effective & affordable marketing solutions
The frequency of outdoor advertising is far superior to any other medium, with the second-best cost-per-thousand views of all media. This alone makes outdoor advertising an efficient media buy.
The benefits of outdoor display advertising
If you’re still on the fence about outdoor display advertising, this section will discuss some of the main benefits of this effective marketing method. Here they are:
Excellent exposure opportunities
Outdoor advertising can provide your brand with amazing opportunities for exposure. For instance, having a billboard at a busy intersection can result in thousands of views per day. Repeated exposure to street pole ads leaves a lasting subconscious impression.
Helps to make your brand well-known in the community
Leveraging outdoor advertising opportunities in your local area solidifies trust in your brand. For example, local real estate agencies use this medium to market their top agents as the “go to” experts in the area.
Advertising on social media platforms can be either free or paid but it’s not guaranteed how many people will actually see your advertisement, if they will be in your target audience or if your actual target audience belongs to a social media platform. Outdoor ads placed in a well thought out location are a reliable method of guaranteed exposure. Contact Adreach today for our rate card and you will be pleased at our competitive pricing.
Opportunities for marketing customisation
Outdoor advertising is customisable. This is your space to tell any story you would like. Some businesses prefer timeless, elegant messaging and seldom change their artwork. Others grab urgent attention, with frequently refreshed artwork that shocks, surprises or delights.
