Why You Need Mobile Billboard Advertising

With its fantastic reach and ability to drive action, it’s clear that digital mobile billboard advertising, as part of the Digital Out of Home advertising mix, delivers great results for businesses.

So, let’s explore five top reasons to include mobile billboards in your next ad campaign.

Mobile billboard trucks are just that, mobile. This means they can locate where your prospects are, ensuring your ad campaign is displayed to the right people in the right places at the right time.

Today, mobile billboard advertising space can be bought via powerful programmatic Digital Out of Home (pDOOH) platforms which utilize a wealth of anonymized mobile location data (plus data from other sources) to give advertisers a clear indication of where their target audiences spend their time throughout the day.

Advertisers can use this data to target their required audience in specific places at desired times ensuring reach and ad spend are optimized for the best ROI.

As such, digital trucks are a sight for sore eyes in the hustle and bustle of city and town centers – drawing attention to their creative messages wherever they go. The perfect medium not only for reaching your ideal customers, but brightening their day (or night!) while you do so.

3. Access Residential or Hard-to-Reach Places

Traditional billboards are great if you’re looking to reach people in high-traffic, well-populated areas like busy streets and highways. They are, however, confined to these spots.

Digital mobile billboards, on the other hand, can go where static billboards can’t – including suburban, residential and other hard-to-reach places that usually get missed in traditional Out of Home (OOH) campaigns.

Billboard trucks travel far and wide – ensuring a huge range of areas and people are covered to maximize the reach and effectiveness of your ad campaign.

Similarly though, they can be locale specific. This is great, for instance, if you want to advertise a delivery or takeout delivery service in a local area, as evidenced by Wendy’s billboard truck advertising.
