Of all the signage options, billboards rank among the biggest. The boldest. The most viewed.
Typically placed in high traffic areas, most billboards locally are on our rural highways.
Billboards need to tell a short story, something passersby can read in 3 seconds or less. They don’t need to be quirky or funny to get someone’s attention. They need to be bold and easy to read.

What types of businesses benefit most from billboard advertising? Here are a few more statistics:
Viewers recalled seeing a wide range of billboard information. 50% or more of viewers recalled restaurants, stores, events and “something funny” they wanted to share with friends.

Nearly one-quarter of billboard viewers say they were motivated to visit a particular store that day because of an outdoor ad message and nearly one third visited a retailer they saw on a billboard later that week. Half of viewers reported receiving directional information from a billboard and one-quarter said they immediately visited a business because of an outdoor ad message.
