Why Choose Outdoor

Outdoor advertising is a great way to reach people where they live, work and play.  It is a media that is everywhere and it creates brand new avenues of exposure where none existed before. Outdoor advertising with Datamax can stop people in their tracks and is one of the most cost-effective advertising options available.

Comparing outdoor ads to other advertising options:
Unlike TV, radio or print, outdoor is media that cannot be turned off or put down.  Viewers cannot fast forward through an outdoor ad as it moves through their environment or they enter the viewing range of strategically placed displays.  With TV, radio, print and the Internet, consumers have the ability to change the channel, fast forward, turn the page  or close the browser window. Outdoor is possibly the last place where consumers do not control the ad space.  This gives advertisers control over how and where an ad is seen.  Outdoor advertising is GIVING advertisers more control over their ad space through its unprecedented offering of different media options.
