Ready to take your business to the big screen? In this month’s blog post, we’re revealing five billboard marketing tips that are guaranteed to grab attention and drive results. 

Location, Location, Location!

You’ve heard it before, but we can’t stress it enough – the location of your billboard is crucial. Choose high-traffic areas where your target audience is likely to see your message. Whether it’s along busy highways, near shopping centers, or in bustling urban areas, strategic placement can significantly increase your billboard’s effectiveness.

Keep it Simple, Yet Striking

When it comes to billboard design, less is definitely more. You only have a few seconds to capture attention, so make every word and image count. Aim for a clear, concise message that can be easily understood at a glance. According to research by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), billboards with six words or less are the most effective. And don’t forget about visuals – bold, eye-catching imagery can leave a lasting impression.

Embrace Creativity

In a sea of advertisements, you need to stand out. Get creative with your billboard design to make a memorable impact. Incorporate humor, clever wordplay, or striking visuals to capture attention and leave a lasting impression. Think outside the box and don’t be afraid to take risks – sometimes, the most unconventional ideas are the ones that generate the most buzz.

Take this incredible 3D billboard advertisement for example from 20th Century Studios for “Avatar: The Way of Water.” This larger-than-life fantasy adventure took home the top honor at last year’s Out of Home Advertising Association of America’s OBIE Awards. Pretty cool, right?

Utilize Digital Technology

Gone are the days of static billboards – embrace the power of digital technology to make your message dynamic and engaging. Digital billboards allow you to display multiple messages, rotate ads, and even incorporate real-time updates like weather forecasts or social media feeds. According to a study by PQ Media, digital out-of-home advertising represented 33% of total OOH spend and grew almost 10% in 2023. This highlights the increasing importance of digital billboards in today’s advertising landscape.
