Kelowna Billboard Advertising

In the Centre of the Okanagan Valley lies the incomparable city of  Kelowna, a growing urban hub of activity and industry. Kelowna is the largest city in the Okanagan, with a population of over 118,000.

Visible growth in areas of both construction and population make Kelowna an important and desirable place for advertisers in the billboard industry.

With industry growth comes traffic volume, and Kelowna has the highest impression with the lowest cost for billboard advertising in the country. The enormous increase in volume of commuters due to new commercial expansion in West Kelowna brings many opportunities for high impression placement of outdoor highway signs. The density of traffic is due to one crossing into and out of Kelowna’s core via Highway 97 and the WR Bennett bridge.

Money making ideas from your billboard

Here are 3 money making ideas from your Billboard.

1. Create a unique spin offering something no one else does. You should have a clear simple message and spend time building a strong brand. It should communicate what is different about your company (statements such as good customer service or great prices are things the customer already expects and therefore not unique.)
A unique quality could be something like:
“All you can eat chicken wings – free with every meal”
“We walk your dog while you a shop at our store…  “
or  “Buy your kitchen cabinets from us and we will completely repaint your kitchen for  free”

2. Reach as many people as possible at the lowest cost/impression. The most important element of an ad campaign is to use the power of numbers reaching the greatest number of people at the lowest possible cost. In the Central Okanagan part of British Columbia for example, a well located billboard can reach over 100,000 viewers in a single day for less than 25 bucks. You will not find that exposure in any other ad medium. We are talking about the impact of a 24 foot wide sign, not a classified ad in the newspaper.

3. Use a Billboard to drive consumers to your website. Do not clutter your billboard with detail. The billboards’ primary purpose is to motivate the customer to contact you. Let your website or salesperson do the selling. The billboard should assure that they remember your web address and your name. The customer must be able to easily find you by remembering your website address or by doing a Google search with your name alone.
I was recently trying to reach another billboard company that operates in Western Canada. Their name is clearly posted on the bottom of their signs in other provinces. After much effort I was unable to locate them by doing a Google search . I wonder how their sales performance is?

The Advantages of Outdoor Advertising

Highway Billboards are the most highly recognized form of outdoor advertising

Outdoor advertising includes billboards, posters, airport ads, bus signs, mall posters, transit shelters, stadium signs, bench advertising and more.  It is estimated that there are more than 40 types.

There is no remote control to turn off a billboard. Commuters and local travelers may pass your billboard over and over again during the course of a campaign. The more often a consumer is given the opportunity to view and consider purchasing your product or service, the more likely he or she is likely to do so. Consumers usually travel the same route every day creating the opportunity for multiple viewings by your target audience.
Another advantage of billboards is that they are very large stand alone ads unlike newspaper or other media which are surrounded by editorial, photos etc.
Another major consideration in any ad campaign is cost.  According to the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, outdoor advertising is 80 percent less expensive than TV, 60 percent less expensive than newspapers and 50 percent less expensive than radio.
According to the Advertising Association of America 72% of those polled say they are exposed to “too much” advertising.
Television ranked highest at 83%. Internet ranked second at 73%.
In the same survey, only 26% of people said there was “too much” advertising  in Outdoor Media.

96 of Canada’s top 100 advertisers include Outdoor Advertising in their media mix.

Billboard/Website – The Perfect Marriage

I was visiting my nephew recently and commented on his beautiful Hi-Def TV. Two things caught my interest…every time a commercial came on, he switched to another channel remarking that he doesn’t miss any of the second show because the TV package will buffer another channel for up to a full hour. That means that it is recording a 2nd channel of your choice and therefore allows you to go back and see what was showing 20, 30 or a full 60 minutes ago. My nephew doesn’t watch advertising…EVER. The other thing I noticed is that the number on the channel we were watching was something like 921. I said, “Do you get 900 channels?”. “Yup something like that and I watch way too much TV. It’s less than a hundred bucks a month though.”

Another cousin of mine doesn’t even pay for satellite TV as he bought a Hi-Def system in the US and just plugged it in.

Oh and by the way, my nephew estimates that his yellow pages books are used maybe twice a year. All else is found online. He recently renovated an entire basement suite: plumbing, wiring, drywall, everything he did himself…having never done it before. He simply researched each subject online, read about it and then did it. My nephew is 27 years old with a wife and daughter – a typical family in the new and changing world of massive technological shift. Get with the future and forget about advertising in traditional media.

To their credit the Yellow Page industry is going virtual and does have online search engines for finding phone numbers, pizza, etc. I wonder how much paper goes into making phone books even for one small City – I estimate a small forest. By the way, don’t buy stocks in pulp and paper companies.

In a typical week, Canadians spend about 35% of their time away from home, according to the Toronto-based Out-of-Home Marketing Association of Canada (OMAC). People may be involved in activities such as shopping, attending fitness clubs, or driving to and from school or work.

Optimizing and driving traffic to your website is probably the single most important thing that you can do at this time. Having a Billboard is one of the best and cheapest ways to do this. Billboard Advertising has one of the lowest costs per thousand in all media. Look at these numbers:

In Kelowna B.C. you can have over 100,000 people view your billboard each day for less than $25. A one year contract would bring you over 30 million viewers.
