Local Billboard Advertising

Local billboard advertising is hugely popular with both local companies promoting goods, local services and events, as well as national and international brands wishing to market their products across the country to a wider audience. As well as static billboards we also offer digital billboard advertising. 

Advertising in this way is one of the oldest in the world - initially starting with people painting on the sides of buildings to the bright digital options that are available today. There is a huge range of options to consider when looking to carry out this form of proven and effective marketing, with options to suit most budgets. 

Local billboards are often positioned in areas of high footfall so that they are able to reach a great cross-section of society, such as:

  • Shopping areas
  • High-streets
  • Round-abouts
  • Train stations
  • Bus stops
  • Roadsides

National Outdoor Advertising

At Billboard Advertising we also work with local, national and international companies who are looking for nationwide outdoor campaigns to promote themselves to a broad audience; those who are really looking to expand and have maximum reach. 

If this is of interest to your company contact us today and tell us which areas you are looking to target. We can get availability in a variety of formats and locations all over the UK to suit your needs.

The most popular form of national outdoor campaigns we work with includes the following outdoor media:

Billboard Advertising Costs UK

As you can imagine “how much does a billboard ad cost” or “how much do billboards cost” are the two most common questions we get asked.

To be honest there aren’t standard costs for advertising on billboards and it is based on a number of factors. 

The most significant variables which may affect a billboard advertising cost include the below:

  1. The type of billboards you wish to purchase.
  2. The location of them.
  3. Duration you want them up for.
  4. Whether you are looking for a local or national campaign.
  5. The size - bigger billboards generally cost more than smaller ones, whilst adverts in areas with high footfall are typically more expensive. Both of these, however, have more impact, so you need to weigh up the benefits against the cost.

Being aware of these factors will allow you to make informed decisions about booking what is right for you.

For more detailed information about billboard costings, contact us directly or you can read our costs page which goes into more specialist and professional detail.

Billboard Advertising Companies - Why Choose Us?

There are lots of outdoor marketing companies around, however, we believe we stand out from the crowd and from the other outdoor advertising agencies for these main reasons:

  1. We have an excellent team of passionate and highly experienced outdoor media buyers and advertising agencies who have existing relationships in place with top outdoor media suppliers (such as Clear Channel and Primesight) meaning we can secure fantastic outdoor media options at top prices.  
  2. We are focused on our clients; we believe you are the most important people.  
  3. We are a group of independent outdoor media planners and we importantly aren’t “wedded" to one supplier or company. We can, therefore, offer impartial advice, rather than encouraging to you buy our own billboards; this impartiality we feel is key to a successful and balanced campaign.
  4. We keep it simple - other top advertising agencies can make the process seem complicated and full of availability spreadsheets, options and more. Our aim is to make the process simple and stress-free for you.

We believe that our job is simple, to look after and accommodate your billboard advertising needs so that you can focus on running your business! We help local businesses as well as national ones in major cities across the UK to drive brand awareness.

We can also help with billboard design so you can create something eye-catching for your audiences. 

If you like the sound of us and our direct approach to working, please drop us a message as we'd love to help your business move to the next level with effective advertising options.

What Makes the Best Outdoor Advertising Campaigns?

At Billboard Advertising we believe that the key to the best and most successful outdoor advertising campaigns is achieved through an awareness of the two main following points:

  • Knowing your target market - think of who they are, what they do in their spare time etc. This is key to identifying which billboards are going to get their attention and make your campaign a success. 

To be clear, you need to know your target audience clearly before embarking on a successful outdoor advertising campaign otherwise your return won’t be as good.

  • Artwork - we believe it is vital to catch attention with your outdoor ad, showing potential customers what your company is straight away with clear and direct messaging. This is because people are often busy when they walk by or are exposed to billboards (e.g. in busy shopping areas, walking on the street, on their phones, driving cars etc) so make sure you stand out and grab attention with concise and relevant messaging. Don't be missed!

UK Outdoor Advertising Overview & History

Outdoor advertising in the UK is a form of marketing that has been popular for centuries and is something that continues to evolve and develop. From initial paintings on the side of buildings to the vibrant digital options available today, UK outdoor advertising and billboard advertising has never stood still and is more popular than ever before with a full range of advertisers. 

Cost-effective and eye-catching, outdoor media has developed over time and types of billboard advertising now encompass everything from roadside boards through to football pitch adverts - almost wherever you turn you will see out-of-home marketing in action. This is why it is so effective. 

At Billboards Advertising we cater for and secure all types of out-of-home media, locating and purchasing these sites for your requested time scales (typically a minimum of 2 weeks but most campaigns run longer). We buy these sites either directly with the media owners, whether large well-known and brilliant billboard companies such as ClearChannel, Exterion or Primesight or small private owners should that be suitable for your campaign.

Combination Marketing for Your Business or Company

Outdoor marketing and billboards advertising is a superb way of grabbing the attention of potential consumers across the UK. However, should you wish to compliment your outdoor adverts with other forms of marketing such as TV, radio, newspaper ads etc we have contacts at our sister agency, the leading ad agency PromoMedia who we can put you in contact with, should you wish to complement your outdoor advertising with these more traditional marketing methods.
