Earn Highest Honors with Billboard Advertising

It doesn’t take an advanced degree to know there are more ways than ever to reach potential students. Today more universities, colleges, trade school, private and religious schools and even public schools are looking for new ways to stand out. Whether you’re looking to reach students, parents, alumni, even potential employees or would-be donors, one thing these diverse groups are all likely to share is time driving. And, nothing reaches a driver like digital billboard advertising.

Not everyone thinks of Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising when it comes to marketing education. Those who do report outstanding results, whether it’s publicizing a new program or an award-winning faculty member, seeking new students, faculty or staff, or doing a little branding. Just ask the University of Missouri, which used billboards to publicize its move to the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

Digital billboards are an effective and proven medium that allows schools, and their supporters, administrators and departments to deliver just the right message at just the right time to a wide variety of audiences. For creative inspiration and design ideas search education in Fliphound’s billboard ad gallery and library or see top 20+ college, education and school effective billboard ad examples.

Take Your Message Beyond What's Online

Just about everyone agrees that the best ways to reach young people today are through electronic media, and not just a school’s website. As an audience, they want what’s new and fresh, and digital billboards offer that. Not only are they colorful and dynamic, but with Fliphound, what you see today doesn’t have to be what’s there tomorrow – or even later today.

Social networking, podcasts, virtual tours on YouTube, even live chats are routinely used by private schools and universities. The funny thing is, a survey by Crux Research shows that young people (18-34) have more trust in and pay more attention to posters and billboards than all but one other ad medium. They’re tuning out pop-ups and banner ads. Adding out-of-home (OOH) billboard advertising to your overall ad campaign can increase the reach of TV by 18%, Radio by 45%, Social Media 212% and Mobile 316%.

Digital billboards can keep the people who count in the know about what’s happening at your school. Tell commuting parents when you’ll have a recruiter in their town or neighborhood. Let in-town alumni know about an upcoming special event. Spread your good name wherever digital billboards are available.

Fliphound: Leading the Class in Digital Billboards

Fliphound’s expertise is in connecting advertisers to digital billboards at price points that work for them. Whether your need is billboard space for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks, Fliphound can connect you with digital billboards that have space available in the places you want to be.

Digital billboards complement other online advertising. Not only are they a proven and affordable way to stand out from the crowd, but OOH advertising costs less than radio, TV or print on a CPM basis, and allows you to reach audiences at just the right time. Fliphound works with you to make buying billboards easy.

Even if your budget is limited, you’ll only spend enough to accomplish your immediate goal. If you’re seeking funds for construction of a new dorm or building, Fliphound can extend your outreach to the big donors and raise your profile at the same time. If the football cheerleaders are having a carwash to raise money, a couple hundred dollars can easily promote that event, too.
