IV. Marketing Plan
Outdoor digital LED billboard is getting more and more popular. Take South Africa for example, around seven years ago, there were only two or three media owners in South Africa that had constructed digital billboards, and as a result they could largely dictate pricing. At the time, the billboard industry in South Africa was in the early stages of transformation following the rapid uptake and expansion of digital out of home (DOOH) globally.
Increasing numbers of OOH media owners entered the category, resulting over time in an explosion of digital billboards being erected across a number of major South African cities. This is not a surprise and mirrors similar trends that we see globally with digital billboards growing at 11.1% in 2019 (* Source PQ Media), nearly triple the growth rate of static or traditional OOH media.
According to Outdoor Auditors, there are currently over 200 OOH media owners in South Africa operating approximately 13 500 billboards. Of these 282 are digital, accounting for just over 2% of the site universe (Source Outdoor Auditors Feb 2020 Report). While representing a very small proportion of total sites, digital billboards are attracting significant revenues and have now replaced approximately 1 600 static panels, according to the latest February report from Outdoor Auditors.
Digital Roadside Billboards have increased from 174 sites in February 2018 to 282 in February 2020, reflecting growth of 62% over the two-year period.
According to the study, people who take notice of billboards make shopping decisions while in the car.
72% of billboard viewers frequently or sometimes shop on their way home from work
68% frequently or sometimes make their shopping decisions while in the car
38% decide to stop at the store while on their way home
24% say they were motivated to visit a particular store that day because of an outdoor ad message
32% visited the retailer they saw on a billboard later that week
50% reported receiving directional information from a billboard
24% said they have immediately visited a business because of an outdoor ad message
These findings indicate that digital outdoor LED billboard advertising does work. It will go much better if the led billboard is movable at outside. People notice the ads and are influenced by them too.

This will also ensure business benefit and grow the trust our customers have for us.
Our main weakness will be the quantity of our mobile LED billboard trucks. And the problems we will be facing as a new entrant in the industry. We have taken these weaknesses into consideration and have put plans in place to perform above them.
Statistics has shown that the demand for mobile LED billboard advertising is growing and has no plans of going down. The competition in the traditional outdoor business community is growing every day. Businesses and individuals are striving to let their target audience know where they are and what new things they offer. This is what we plan to help them achieve.
