There is something about seeing a giant metal machine flying through the sky. It’s 2016 and we are already living in the future. We are living in a completely digital world and are probably extremely close to teleporting and living our entire lives in some 3D doppelganger clone of ourselves. Airplanes actually feel like an old piece of technology, because they’ve been around for over 100 years. But no matter what crazy technology comes our way, when a plane flies across the sky… people look.
That’s why aerial advertising works so well. Flying banners behind planes — although simple nowadays — is a brilliant way of advertising that not enough businesses take advantage of. There are millions of billboards out there that can reach people for a few seconds a day and from maybe a distance of up to a mile? Maybe.
Flying banners behind planes has way better of a reach than that. You will be able to advertise your product, service, company, or brand to way more people than a silly billboard. Airplane messages can be visible up to 30 miles away and they will stay in view for more than 20 minutes.
There aren’t too many billboards with that kind of reach. There aren’t too many any type of advertisements having that kind of reach. Up to 30 miles away for more than 20 minutes! It’s crazy to think that companies have that kind of advertising benefit available to them and so few take advantage of it.
Imagine a day at a popular beach. In some parts of the country, there are close to 1 million people at any time across a beach. How many of those beachgoers would look up and see your sky advertising? A plane is in the sky in front of them… probably the majority will look. A few plane advertising campaigns even have a 20% response rate. That’s a lot of potential people who are just waiting to spend their money on your business.
Advertisers have been flying banners behind planes since the early 1920s. They have been going on for so long because they work. If you have an idea for your company’s advertising, contact us today!
