One of the key considerations for advertising is your target audience, and many companies have found sports fans to be a good target audience because they are relatively easy to reach and are slightly more responsive to ads than other audiences. The best way to reach sports fans is by ordering dasher boards from a full color printing service posting them at sporting venues.
Whether their team is winning or losing, sports fans are generally in good spirits and have high energy when they are attending a game or a match, and studies have shown that a majority of them will read the advertisements posted during down time between plays or time outs. Also, when players are near your ads, your logo is often captured and projected on the big screen, on television or captured in a photo and run in the newspaper the next day. This means that you get more advertising value for each dollar simply by putting your ad in such a high-profile spot.

Window graphics, also known as window stickers, vinyl banners and more, not only grab attention as customers pass by, but also can eliminate the need to cover up construction or put up an interesting window display in every single window. Thus, not only are you advertising in a manner that is eye-catching and that has been proven to be successful, but you are also saving time by pasting on a display that will last.
Since Apple Visual Graphics can print window graphics in any shape or size, they are easy to create, even for oddly shaped spaces, and the bold vinyl is hard to miss. Whether you are running a short-term sale, or you are changing locations and want to draw customers to your new store, window graphics can reach your customers successfully.

Often, with advertising, the goal isn’t necessarily to pinpoint a certain, highly specific group of people, but simply to get your product, message or company out there. There are many ways to do this, but we will highlight two popular, durable cost-effective methods in this blog.
First we will focus on rotating displays. These displays are backlit and rotate, and can often be found at public transportation stops, like bus shelters, airports and train stations, and in shopping centers, like malls. These are useful, because the movement and the illumination capture people’s attention. The printing experts at Apple Visual Graphics are more than happy to help transform your poster advertisements into dynamic rotating displays that will spread your message, quickly and efficiently.
The next advertising method that is also underused, but very effective is Street Pole Banners. The banners are printed with bright, eye-catching colors on durable material and, given their stationary, unique placement, it enables them to reach the same, diverse crowd that commutes by and around the posters each day.
Advertising is always more successful, if you target a certain audience. This doesn’t always mean by designing the ads, themselves, to appeal to a particular group; often it means placing them in areas so that they will be seen multiple times by the same people.
In a previous blog we discussed how bus shelter advertisements could be highly successful, because they target a specific demographic. If you decide you want to target this audience, another way to continue targeting your ads to the same people is by advertising on commuter cards, or panes on subways and in subway trains. On average, more than five million people ride the subway each weekday, meaning more people see these ads, than the bus stands. There is also a lot of overlap, which deepens the impression your ad makes.
Whatever demographic you want to target, make sure to tailor your ads and the locations where you place them specifically to reach those people.
By advertising on dasher boards in sports venues, you are accessing a large audience that is sympathetic to your message, due to the implied alliance of your company with their favorite sporting team. These advertisements tend to be quite successful, because they are being read in an environment that is charged with excitement and positive energy. Similar to bus stand ads, sporting audiences are a captive audience, which allows you to create extended messages that are reinforced with your audience over the course of the game.
Since Apple Visual Graphics opened, we have specialized in creating dasher board ads for any type of sports venue, and can even create ads to fit ice resurfacing machines at hockey rinks. If you think your products or services would sell well to a captive audience of loyal, excited sports fans, then call, today, for more information and help designing your perfect dasher board ad.
