Taxi Screen Advertising
We’ve all seen taxis driving about with brightly coloured ads on the side, but are these any different to ads on the side of buses or billboards? Perhaps not. But as marketing moves on and more firms look to deliver a memorable user experience that really aligns the brand to consumer’s consciousness in a positive manner, a new advertising option has entered the taxi market.
Taxi screen advertising allows brands to really interact with potential and existing customers whilst they are otherwise undistracted – so companies have the opportunity to make a lasting impact and create a positive interaction.
If you’d be interested in learning more on how you could give a lasting impression to consumers through a new form of marketing, get in touch with the Billboard Advertising team to discuss your options… and read on for more information!
What is Taxi Screen Advertising?
Taxi screen advertising is the marketing method by which advertisers are able to communicate their brand messages through screens build into the back of taxi drivers headrests and situated elsewhere in the back of a classic ‘black cab’. These adverts can be simple animations or videos, or, increasingly, offer an interactive experience through a touchscreen.
Taxi screen advertising can be used as a standalone messaging tool or as part of a wider campaign – it’s a natural extension to brand marketing on the outside of taxis.
Benefits of Taxi Screen Advertising
Taxi screen advertising is a really impactful method of communicating with consumers as it’s still somewhat unusual and isn’t yet commonplace. Some taxi screen advertising also allows for interaction with the user; creating a memorable experience that portrays the brand as an innovator and ‘fun’, in a way its competitors are unable to, well… compete with!
Suits businesses of all shapes and sizes
It may seem that taxi screen advertising is only a marketing method for large firms with big marketing budgets to boot, but the amount of differing options available actually means its an achievable advertising channel for all.
Plays to a captive audience
Those travelling in the back of taxis are usually a captive audience with little or no distraction or other entertainment on offer. Often bored and willing to be somewhere, exposing this audience to an advert is often therefore positively received and frequently easily recalled later on. Taxis are used by only a few select audience demographics; usually with a decent degree of disposable income and used to travel, so messages can be well aligned to your desired audience/s.
Messages can be easily adapted and updated
As a digital form of marketing, taxi screen advertising can be loaded and updated from a central external source. This offers a great degree of flexibility to businesses – the ability to change messaging on certain days, at different times of the day, in different taxis or in different geographic areas. Should anything major happen that doesn’t fit well with the branding (for example, something politically or anything news-worthy that may render your content insensitive or irrelevant), it can be immediately changed and updated across all of your taxi fleet.
Numerous options available for all
Those advertising on taxi screens are able to choose from several options available when it comes to marketing on them. Basic animations can be created and played on a loop, or for those with a higher budget available, a full video. If your firm already has a TV or video campaign available, such footage can be transferred over and uploaded within minutes.
Ads can be gamified
For brands really wishing to make an impact and leave a meaningful impression with consumers, interactive options can be created and installed. Whilst the fleet numbers for taxis with touchscreens are fewer, these are undoubtedly the best way to move your marketing to experiential and really invest in something innovative.
