In Out-Of-Home advertising, the customer is the main target. No hard-planned strategy will work if the above two aspects are overlooked.
You can buy or hire the largest billboard in the area but your advertising tactics will fail if they are not placed in the right location. The same can be said about your customers. You have to know them like the back of your palm. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Who is your target audience?
- What is their age group?
- What percentage of them are male and what percentage are females?
- How many of them are married or single?
- Do they all have jobs?
Should you be able to answer all these questions, consider your marketing campaign a success. If not, you have a lot of homework to do.
Customer knowledge cannot be confined to basic demographics. OOH, advertising thrives on something called “psychographics”- a fancy term that encompasses everything from the customer’s personality, values, opinions, attitudes, and lifestyle.

Beyond this, in-depth knowledge of your target location will help you refine your promotional strategy. Billboard advertising works wonders when it is placed in the right location that captures the attention of the target audience. Ideally, your billboard should tick the following boxes:
- High unobstructed visibility.
- Close proximity to the highway or road.
- Positioned at the right viewable angle.
- Placement of the billboard in high traffic areas.
- The proximity of the billboard with the place of business (if it is a restaurant or hotel)
- Avoiding cluttered spaces on the highway
Here is where we lay extra stress on knowing your target audience. Customer knowledge and location knowledge go hand-in-hand. Different locations will attract different groups of people. Billboard advertising
on highways ought to focus on something that will attract the working masses and the business community. If you are targeting the younger audience, local eateries, bars, cinemas, shopping malls, and places of entertainment should be your prime target.
