Interested in buying or renting billboard ads?

If you are interested in buying billboard advertisement make sure that the billboards is placed in a high trafficked area, positioned so the passerby can easily see it and in locations near transportation points, foot traffic and that the audience you are targeting could be potential customers.

Billboard and hoarding still work!

For you who don't know what hoarding is, it is a large outdoor advertising structure that we call a Billboard. If you need to make a big impact in your local area, using billboard advertising can be a good choice. But this is not for all companies especially not for you who operate a smaller company. Billboards are often quite expensive and located at sites with a big audience reach. Reach and frequency are two really important aspects of any advertisement and if you make good outdoor advertising which engages the consumer it most certainly will work. If it is a fun and creative billboard it will probably also end up in thousands of Instagram feeds. And it these types of creative billboard this post is about!

Universidad de Ingeniería & Tecnología / University of Engineering and Technology in Lima, Peru made this awsome and creative billboard, the advertisement for UTECs Portable Water Generator is great. This billboard also went viral, but serves a greater purpose than most bilboards. Here they highlight one of the major problems in developing countries and also one of the main problems some suffer with. It is a fact that not everyone has running water that is safe to drink in or near their houses. It's actually so bad that there are those who have to walk several miles to reach a water hole, check out this billboard and learn more about how creative one can be used to illustrate certain problems.
