Hello everyone, I would like to talk to you today about some of the steps a business needs to take when installing a digital billboard. Everything's easier said than done, this holds especially true with installing a digital sign. The first thing you need to do is find a good spot for your new sign, you want a highly visible, well traversed location to try and maximize the signs exposure. This step is so you get the best ROI for how much you'll be spending on the sign. Once you have that done, contact the local port authorities, the city and state, and make sure that the location you chose doesn't break any laws and is alright to advertise on. Then you'll need a budget set aside to finance the sign, make sure to account for taxes, fees, foundation installation (giant metal pole stuck in concrete), etc, on top of the cost of the sign. then once that's all in order you must put down the aforementioned foundation; which is a sturdy metal pole with appropriate hanging brackets attached set in concrete. Be sure that it also has appropriate power running to the pole, this is important considering it runs on electricity. Then once you pay for the sign, expect a fairly long waiting period before the sign gets to your place of business. These signs are large, heavy, and are coming from China usually so unless you're a wizard, you won't see next day delivery. You're almost done, Now all that's left is to let the installation crew put the sign up and familiarize yourself with the software that will allow you to make advertisements and post them to your new sign. That's about it, if I left anything out please leave a comment at the bottom of the page and tell me of your experiences, concerns, ideas, etc. Thank you for reading Rush Hour Digital Marketing's, we hope you have a great day.

Hello everyone, I'm here today to talk about how SMS (short message services) can help small businesses prosper for relatively cheap. SMS is a powerful tool used for direct marketing because it puts your products directly into the hands of the people interested in your product. How it does this is whoever provides your SMS service gives you a 5 digit number for people to text to. Then the business who purchases the SMS service creates keywords for people to text. When the people text the keyword to the provided 5 digit number, they're phone number is automatically entered into a database so they can now receive texts from that company. This gives businesses the opportunity to reach out to their entire customer base and send them a "call to action" kind of message; which are usually specials on food, discounts, reminders, etc. Now just imagine what all you could do with a powerful marketing tool like that, then give us a call at 330-339-4333 when you're ready to start SMS in your company.

If you want a real time example of what SMS does exactly, just text RHDM to the number 20300 to get a better idea.

Hello again everybody, today we're going to talk about motion on digital billboards. Here at Rush Hour Digital Marketing we've discovered a new way to make motion on a digital billboard using still images and not .gif, .avi or other motion formats. We believe the way we do it is less distracting than an actual motion picture playing a video ad, but far more eye catching than a static display for 5 seconds. As of now; we call this new idea "pop motion" because it's not actual motion, it just keeps "popping" up new images that catch potential customers eyes constantly, creating a better, more appealing advertisement. Full video advertisements kind of make people want to watch the whole video for some reason; whether it be OCD impulses or they just want to see what happens next. Granted this is better for branding, but is bad for local insurance companies who have to cover the cars that get destroyed because of your videos. This new concept of "pop motion" advertising, we believe, is less distracting because it's semi-predictable. People will look at the advertisement because it's moving, they brand the advertisement into their minds quickly then quickly look back at the road and pay attention to driving again. This makes this form of advertising perfect for roadside digital billboards.

A good billboard ad can be the difference between 15 interested customers and 150 interested customers. So what's the best artwork or content you should put on a billboard? Well digital billboards are far different from a magazine or newspaper, so the graphic made for it must be different too. Billboard artwork should be vivid, brief, and use contrast to it's advantage. When an ad on a billboard has too many things to read and too many colors or pictures on it, it ends up having too many design elements competing for visual importance.

A good billboard most of the time will have 3 strong design elements. The first element is the most important one which gets the viewers attention with a "call to action", product image, service, or logo. The second design element will consist of support for the first design element and gives definition or detail to it. The third element will provide relevant information that tells the customer who, where, or how to contact to get more information to the first and second design elements.

So let's say a car company wanted to create an ad for a billboard. The first element might be giant text that says "financing available" or "$200/month". then the second element would be an image of one of their vehicles. Lastly would be either the companies name, website, phone number, etc to give the customer an idea of who they are and how to get ahold of them. The financing available would get the passer-by's attention, then the second element, the vehicle picture, would show them what they're financing, then the third is giving them a way to get the financing for the advertised vehicle. This example shows an ad that not only gets peoples attention, but quickly gets it's message to the potential customer.
