Traditional Advertising Services

Traditional advertising isn’t dead. Certainly, the media landscape has changed. The ability for consumer-to-consumer sharing on a massive scale needs to be a consideration in every company’s marketing planning. But does the changing media landscape really mean that traditional advertising is any less significant?
People are still paying close attention to traditional media sources like newspapers and billboards. These sources continue have a massive impact on driving new clients towards your business as well as offering you a way to increase visibility aside from your online presence. In fact, according to a Nielsen survey, magazine and newspaper ads are still the most trusted form of paid traditional media in North America. And more than half of respondents in the survey said they trust traditional advertising platforms overall. Therefore, if done right, traditional advertising that combines a healthy mix of strategy and creativity can create a powerful tool of persuasion.

Print Advertising

Print is a sensory media experience and many people prefer it because of its tangibility. Of the reasons why people prefer print media has to do with the feel of the paper; having it in their hands means that the content is real and it exists. Thus, print remains the dominant traditional advertising medium. A good strategy for your business, when it comes to print, is to create brand awareness via traditional advertising and then capitalize on the recognition later using digital media. Traditional marketing campaign works best when print advertising is used in conjunction with other media as one element of an integrated solution.

Out-of-Home Advertising

Out-of-home advertising (OOH) is any visual advertising media found outside of the home. This can include billboards and signs, transit shelter ads, and location-based ad media like you might see at a stadium or in the theatre. Unlike online advertising, there are no ad blockers. Billboards, signs, posters and digital screens are unblock-able. There’s no fold to be lost beneath and no shortage of visibility. In other words, OOH is the ideal vehicle for the big, colourful messages that brands are trying to get out. Tech companies like Facebook and Google may be leading the way in the world of online advertising, yet when they want to advertise their newest product or feature, they turn to OOH advertising, buying billboard ads around the world. With the average consumer spending on average 53% of their weekly active time outside of their home, OOH advertising is arguably the most powerful and effective medium for reaching and targeting a mass audience. It’s also the most effective offline medium in driving online activity, according to the Nielsen survey. From eye-catching creative to clear, clever messaging, I can generate effective OOH advertising that consumers will remember — even at 100km per hour.
