Comparing OOH Advertising and Radio Advertising

Posted by Gurdeep Sumal on February 5, 2019

What Does It All Mean? 

Advertising refers to the process of promoting your product or service to the marketplace. When it comes to driving successful sales, it is vital to make sure your product and its core benefits are known to your target audience(s). Where marketing involves the groundwork of branding and researching the needs of your target market, advertising is the process whereby you actually communicate with your target market.

Advertising campaigns can be communicated through numerous venues, billboards, OOH, television, radio, or online. Part of your marketing research will be identifying the most effective venues for your target audience. Here we discuss the power of radio and OOH advertising. 

Radio advertising:

Just like advertisers pay for the commercials you see on television during your favorite show, some advertisers also choose to focus their marketing dollars on radio advertising. That is, buying commercials, frequently called spots in the radio industry, to promote their products or services. Advertisers pay commercial radio stations for airtime and, in exchange, the radio station broadcasts the advertiser's commercial to its listening audience.

There are some popular radio advertising:

        Live read: A format where you can hear commercials read in real-time online by a radio announcer, a type of            commercial also known as a live read.
        Sponsorship: Many radio stations implement sponsorships for certain types of radio segments, such as                    traffic, weather, or sports scores during the halftime of a big game.
        Produced spot: A produced spot can either be a straight read of your advertising message or a read that                  incorporates multiple voices, sound effects or a jingle.

How much do billboards cost per month?

Posted by Shruti Joseph on January 28, 2019

Billboard ads - and digital billboard ads - are on most of the hours of a day and are available at a low cost. To use billboard media means to produce more gross impressions than any other outdoor medium during a given period.

Currently, advertising on LCD billboards is the most popular outdoor advertising type among advertisers ready to reach the general public. Competitive billboard rental ad costs result in low cost-per-thousand figures because the costs for renting billboards is significantly reduced when compared to other media. According to many advertisers, the cost of a billboard rental yields great investment returns. Thus, many businesses and other organizations billboard-advertise in order to increase revenue or their exposure.

The construction of new locations, including new LED billboard advertisements, is prohibited in most cities in the United States, thereby making the existing billboard ad locations all the more valuable. Despite this fact, billboard rental rates remain competitively priced. All types of advertisers recognize this value and therefore include this medium in their outdoor ad plan. Advertisers that use billboard media and engage in renting billboards typically calculate the rent-a-billboard cost by dividing the monthly billboard advertising costs by the monthly gross impressions (which are first divided by 1,000).
