Digital Billboards: The evolution of outdoor advertising

Outdoor advertising has always been a popular and effective way to present your product to the community. Billboard advertising holds some unique benefits over television, radio, and even internet advertising such as cost, placement, and many other factors. But for some advertisers, outdoor display and billboard advertising also has its restrictions, especially when it comes to shaping your message.

Perhaps the biggest drawback of traditional billboard advertising is that the medium only allows for a static message. Additionally, static messages don’t allow for changes to your product or service offering.  This encourages billboard advertisers to stick with one single message for long periods of time, occasionally outliving the advertiser’s purpose.

The Future of Outdoor Advertising is Digital

The world is increasingly going digital in all aspects of industry and commerce. However, with the advent of computers and the internet, traditional advertising became increasingly more sophisticated and digital or Internet-based advertising, which has proven to be significantly better for targeting specific demographics, leading many advertisers to drop support for traditional methods altogether.

With digital billboards, you can display different advertisements each week of your campaign and because digital billboards are all connected to the Internet. Digital Billboards give you the freedom to update your message weekly, daily, even hourly.

The thought of a smart advertisement has been around for quite some time; in fact, any digital, out of home advertising that can modify its message based on the time, date, or the weather can already be viewed a “smart advertisement”.
