The 5 Steps Before You Start a Mobile Billboard Business

The out-of-home marketing industry has traditionally always been a dominant marketing space for fortune 500 companies. This includes TV, radio, newspapers, billboards, and mobile billboards. Due to the ever-changing world of technology, the out-of-home marketing industry has spawned a new industry of digital out-of-home marketing (DOOH). This includes Digital LED Billboards. The DOOH industry is expected to increase to 4.08 billion by 2018, which is sending major ad agencies racing to convert old static billboards into new digital LED screens.

The main advantage of a digital billboard is the ability to instantly change the content. Now ad agencies can provide service to multiple clients on one board. They no longer need a maintenance crew to change a banner every month. This increases profits while keeping overhead costs down.

The evolution of this technology has allowed mobile billboard companies to retrofit LED displays onto vehicles such as; box trucks, pick-up trucks, flatbeds, trailers and even cranes. Digital mobile billboards have the ability to reach demographics that regular billboards can’t go, while displaying multiple messages. Now, operators can easily change the billboards advertising, as well as, the billboards location on-demand. The need for digital billboards will continue to grow rapidly.

You’re probably thinking that the demand, in your demographic, for a digital billboard is there, but just realizing the costs of buying a big box truck, researching & purchasing a large LED display, then figuring out how to retrofit it to your vehicle, is making it difficult to start this very profitable business venture.
