Outdoor billboards can be a wonderful way to get your message out to lots of people passing a specific place,seven days a week, 24 hours a day, in the areas you feel are most important. It is a unique medium in that it communicates to an audience on the go — usually in transit, and always away from home.

Outdoor billboards can communicate simple yet powerful messages, and can be used as an invitation to your church. Outdoor billboard advertising can also provide simple directions to your church.

In an age of ever-increasing specialization, with media focusing on smaller and smaller slices of the population, outdoor advertising — particularly billboards — remains the champion of the generic and the all-inclusive. Far from a tightly targeted medium, outdoor is positioned as a way to reach large, undifferentiated audiences. But that brevity can sharply limit its use. In addition, some consider outdoor billboards an environmental eyesore. However, used correctly, outdoor billboards can be highly effective.

When you embark on an outdoor campaign, you could be working with as many as three different vendors (for space, artwork, production). So, in planning your outdoor project, you should take the date you want your billboard up by and back up at least six weeks. This will help ensure that you do not pay for a board that remains blank for several days or even weeks.

Six weeks will give you ample time to find an outdoor vendor, negotiate a contract, select an expression, determine customization and allow time for artwork creation and output production. Bear in mind that many billboards have extended contracts and may not be available right away.

You can view and order all the direct outdoor ads online at the Media Warehouse . Bus shelters are also available. Call us for details.
