PUT YOUR BRAND ON A BILLBOARD: How to Use Outdoor Billboards to Increase Awareness and Attract Customers to Your Cannabis Brand or Dispensary
Outdoor billboards have been a popular form of advertising for decades, and they continue to be an effective way to increase awareness and attract customers to your cannabis brand or dispensary. With creative and strategically placed billboards, you can reach a large audience and leave a lasting impression. Note: Since each state has distinct rules for outdoor cannabis-related marketing, it’s important to work with partners who have experience placing billboards for cannabis brands. In this blog post, we’ll explore how you can use outdoor billboards to grow your cannabis brand or dispensary.
1. Define Your Target Audience
Before you start designing your billboard, it’s important to define your target audience. Who do you want to reach with your message? What are their demographics, interests, and behaviors? Understanding your target audience will help you create a message that resonates with them and choose the right locations to place your billboards.
2. Create a Compelling Message
Your billboard should have a simple and compelling message that quickly grabs the attention of passersby. Keep the message short and to the point, with a clear call-to-action. Use a strong headline and eye-catching visuals to make your billboard stand out. You want to create a message that is memorable and leaves a lasting impression.
3. Choose the Right Locations
Choosing the right locations for your billboards is essential to their success. You want to place your billboards in not only high-traffic areas, but where your target audience is likely to see them. You can choose locations near your dispensary or in areas where your potential customers live, work, or travel. You should also consider the visibility and readability of the billboard from different angles and distances.
4. Design with Branding in Mind
Your billboard should reflect your cannabis brand’s personality and values. Make sure the design and messaging align with your brand’s style and tone. Your billboard should also include your logo and other branding elements to help increase brand recognition and make a lasting impression on potential customers.
5. Track and Measure Results
To ensure that your billboard advertising is successful, it’s important to track and measure your results. You can do this by using unique phone numbers, URLs, or promotional codes on your billboard that allow you to track the number of leads and conversions generated by the billboard. This will help you determine the effectiveness of your billboard advertising and make adjustments as needed.
