Sales don’t magically happen on Black Friday; it is important to ramp up to this potential plateau to meet or even exceed your seasonal sales goals. ABC news reported a 5.4% gain in August 2012 over last year’s numbers. Historically, a positive back-to-school season means an equally robust holiday shopping season, but expect a lull during the period before Black Friday unless you take an aggressive advertising approach. Too many low-income consumers are strapped right now. They will spend for back-to-school and for the holidays, but for the remainder of the time, they’re very cautious about what they are buying.

Not only is there music but there is camping…Camping spaces (full hook-up, partial hook-up, and primitive) will allow you to enjoy the complete TOADLICK experience.Durden Outdoor is grateful to have had a first hand experience in helping this great event in coming to Dothan, Alabama. They are utilizing all three of the Durden advertising products: Rotary Poster, Bulletins, and our Digital Network. Bulletins are the largest, most impaction standard-size form of outdoor media. Located on highly visible locations, such as expressways and primary arteries, they offer advertisers exposure from heavy traffic patterns. Bulletins afford great visibility due not only to their size, but because they allow creative customizing through extensions and embellishments. A Rotary Poster program is one of the preferred methods used to penetrate the market and build strong brand saturation. Posters are purchased in increments called showings. Poster showings provide a broad, simultaneous market reach that can achieve instant market saturation and high frequency where your customers live, work, and play. Posters are extremely powerful for launching new product campaigns, time sensitive promotions, seasonal and special events (like TOADLICK Music Festival). Digital billboards are the billboards playing an on a large LED display. The display shows one specific ad for roughly 8 seconds before rotating to the next advertisement. The advertisements can be featured for both long term brand building marketing campaigns, and short “pulse advertising” to make a direct advertisement to promote an social event, sale, grand opening, or other event. Different ads can be displayed depending on many variables such as time of the day, month, weather, and more. TOADLICK will surely be FAMOUS before its all over. If you would like to be FAMOUS contact us today and become a part of the Durden Advertising Family.
