While some traditional advertising media are in decline, outdoor advertising is growing. Regarded as less intrusive than other advertising methods, outdoor advertising visually engages the consumer by using colour, humour and compelling imagery. And according to Don Draper, the highly successful advertising director and protagonist of TV series Mad Men “It’s a billboard on the side of the road that screams reassurance that whatever you are doing is OK!”
Being one of the most cost effective forms of advertising with the lowest cost per thousand people who’ll see your ad (CPM), outdoor advertising will put the message right in front of your potential customers and make a huge impact. If you want to raise your company profile and guarantee your brand, product or service will reach large numbers of people, outdoor advertising is perfect for you.
What is it?
Outdoor advertising cannot be purely defined as billboards on the side of the road. There are also poster sites on public transport, bus shelters, shopping centres… the list goes on. It’s estimated there are more than 40 types of outdoor advertising, with billboards being the most widely recognised media.
What’s important, is that your advert is put in front of a captive target audience based on the geographical location. And a mix of 96 and 48 sheet billboards with a few well-placed 6 sheet posters in the right location will help raise your company’s profile and deliver results.
How can outdoor advertising help my business?
Outdoor advertising is a great way to reach people where they live, work and play. This form of advertising can be experienced 24 hours a day, seven days a week and unlike newspaper, radio or TV, it doesn’t have to be invited into the home. Other benefits include:
Outdoor advertising is very economical, especially considering the number of people you’ll reach. You’ll be surprised how little a billboard campaign can cost.
Huge audience reach
Your audience is limitless! You’ll be part of the environment, unlike other forms of advertising that people need to open, turn on or choose to read.
Increased brand awareness
When people see your product, brand or service advertised on billboards and large outdoor sites, they’ll know you’re serious about your business!
You can target specific groups
Where does your target audience go? Do you want a highly targeted campaign in a specific area of Dublin or do you want to target the entire island of Ireland?
Will it work for my business?
Outdoor advertising will work for your business for one simple reason – it’s located out of the home which is where you can market your products or services to targeted masses. Potential customers leave their homes on a daily basis and whether they drive cars, hop on trains and buses, rush through airports or walk down a crowded Grafton Street, they become extremely receptive to outside stimulants.
