Let’s be honest, a lot has changed over the years. Fewer newspapers are being read. People have chosen to listen to their own play lists. Commercials on TV are skipped. Not everyone stops by and visits your business to see the flyer on your window. There is one area of advertising that you, the advertiser still remains 100% in control.
Outdoor Advertising. Out of Home Advertising. Billboards. Call them what you will. They have been around forever and the industry continues to grow. Billboards are out there and visible every time you drive down the road. You can’t turn them off. You can’t skip them. Studies show that people spend 70% of their time away from home. This means there is a lot of opportunity for them to see your message.
Perhaps it is time stop the insanity and consider a hiring campaign using billboards that target your specific market and have a greater success rate of driving people to you.
