Increase Business 625%

1-800-Flowers.com, CEO -  Jim McCann, decided to avoid the web and move the entire ad campaign outdoors.  Until then the online florist had only advertised online, but this campaign took the message to mobile billboards, and across the urban landscape.

Sales in early spring 2006 surged 625% from the Christmas season – traditionally the strongest sales period. And revenues were seven times higher in markets where the outdoor ad campaign was tested. 

The company is not alone in stepping outside. With consumers Tivo-ing past television commercials, discarding newspaper subscriptions, opting for MP3 players rather than radio, and blocking pop-up internet ads, mobile billboards are starting to look more attractive than clicks and other traditional venues to some advertisers. 

The Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA), a trade association representing 90 per cent of the country’s outdoor companies, has estimated that outdoor will be a $10bn business within the next five years.

Out-of-home expenditures – advertising targeting motorists and pedestrians – surpassed $6bn in 2005, an 8 per cent increase over the year before. “This is one of those times when an industry is at the right place at the right time,” said Stephen Freitas, OAAA’s chief marketing officer.

Mobile Billboard are Safe!

Researchers at the University of North Carolina prepared a thorough report on driver distraction for the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. This study, released in June of 2001, said: "The search appears to suggest that some items--such as CB radios, billboards, and temperature controls--are not significant distractions."

Traffic safety experts have studied the relationship between outdoor advertising and traffic accidents since the 1950s, finding no authoritative or scientific evidence that billboards are linked to traffic accidents.

Federal and state courts have concluded that there is no evidence that billboards impair traffic safety.

The U.S. Department of Transportation, State Department of Transportation and property/casualty insurance company's statistics on fatal accidents indicate no correlation between billboards and traffic accidents.

A broad sampling of law enforcement agencies across the country found no evidence that drivers' accidents were caused by billboards.

Numerous state departments of transportation have constructed their own billboards and message centers to provide various information to the motoring public.

Property and casualty insurance companies have conducted detailed studies of traffic accident records and conclude no correlation between billboards and traffic accidents.

Analysis even suggests a safer traffic environment where billboards exist. Studies indicate that billboards can improve safety conditions along highways. Highway safety experts indicate that the presence of advertising signs in rural areas are of value in reducing a driver's boredom, which many believe is a positive contribution to highway safety.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently went on record (Federal Register, March 5, 1999) stating that the agency agrees that appropriately regulated billboards do not compromise highway safety. This includes mobile billboards.

Heatwave helps people get elected!

Every politician who wants to get elected in 2006 is looking for an edge.

Those who win will find a way to stand above the advertising noise and be noticed. Those who don't will find themselves in the loser’s bracket.

Political Campaign (Case Study)

Running against a 20-year incumbent, Candidate's strategists decided the campaign needed a grassroots, yet highly creative way of getting the candidate’s message to voters.

Campaign planners knew that the bombardment of political ads made delivery of the message more difficult. They decided to incorporate a medium that gained the candidate name recognition and spoke directly to voters.

The campaign turned to Mobile Billboards to deliver this critical addition to the media strategy. The mobile billboards were included and helped to cut through the clutter of campaign messages. They were everywhere the candidate needed them.

The campaign used the trucks to interrupt potential voters. Voters became highly familiar with McClendon and even recognized her at various events because of the mobile trucks. She was elected and won by 11,000 votes—attributing her success to the use of highly effective, traveling boards.

"Name recognition was very important because we were running against a 20-year incumbent. We also wanted a novel way to get the message out there. The public needs to be stimulated, and to do that you need something new. People saw the ads and felt, 'this is the person who really wants the job.' She did, and she won." David Anderson, campaign co-manager

Heatwave Mobile Advertising is the countries largest rolling billboard provider. According to Heatwave founder Chad Brink "rolling billboards only make sense for politicians who want to get noticed. They go where voters are... on the road, they ride above traffic and you can’t turn them off or switch stations."

Each one of Heatwave’s mobile boards is seen by over 40,000 people every day. These trucks are on the road already doing their job so they are not adding to pollution, or slowing traffic. The cost per a thousand impressions is less than a buck. Heatwave seems to be a way to make each campaign dollar bring the maximum return.

Anyone running for office and wants to win would be crazy not to check in with Heatwave for their election campaign. To contact Heatwave you can call 866-497-0313 or go to www.heatwavead.com
