Aerial Advertising and Spring Break

Spring Break is here! This means AirSign is busy on the beaches. We have several large companies which we are advertising for this Spring. We are excited about the new relationships we have made and look forward to making more. One of the things that brings AirSign above all of the other banner tow companies, is how we value the relationship with our clients. We take our duty of advertising for these companies very seriously. The individual that sells the job is the same person who is there to walk you through the whole process and endurance of the contract. We will do everything we can to make your advertising effective and make this a wonderful experience for you and your company.

Now, I would like to talk to you a little bit about Aerial Advertising. What makes this way of advertising different and more effective than all the other types of advertising? Keeping reading, I have the answers. We’ll start with beating out the billboards — say your driving down the Interstate or you’re in a big city, you are overwhelmed with billboards. There are so many that you can’t see each one as an individual advertisement. They are just a sea of colors and words. Five minutes after seeing all these signs, you won’t remember what you just saw. Now let’s switch to radio and TV ads. When the commercials come on the radio, I always switch the station. Never fails. Then, with TV ads, 99% of the time I switch the channel or I get up to get a snack or drink.

This is where Aerial Advertising rises above all the others. When your Aerial Billboard is flying in the sky, it is not overcome by all the other aerial signs in the sky. The sky isn’t full of billboards so your sign can’t help but be noticed and remembered. I can still remember all the aerial banners I saw last Spring Break in Panama City!

This year, we are in several locations doing Spring Break work. We still have available times that your company can take advantage of and join the world of Aerial Advertising. We have people here ready to assist you in every way possible to get your company to in the sky!

AirSign Aerial Advertising Works With HP

Watch AirSign at work…

One of the companies AirSign advertised for at the Super Bowl was Hewlett Packer. We flew a giant Aerial Billboard the whole weekend of the Super Bowl. This was HP’s first time to do Aerial Advertising and they were extremely happy with all that AirSign has done for them. Our goal is to satisfy our clients beyond their expectations and we did nothing less for HP.

The weather in Dallas had us a little worried as to whether we would be able to fly all the hours our clients had asked for. AirSign was able to step up to the plate and still fly all the hours booked. Our company is equipped and prepared for what may come up with weather and all that is involved with Aerial Advertising.

We had our own professional videographer at the events to capture this special time for our clients.

Using Aerial Ads to Display Your Message in the Night Sky

What is the last frontier? Is it space as some claim? Is it the oceans? For advertisers, it may well be the sky. It is like an immense surface on which to write a message for all to see. In a way, the sky is the last frontier in advertising. Aerial advertising makes great use of this resource by displaying banners or billboards that are pulled behind planes over large crowds at a beach, sporting event or the like. This way the message is read by a large number of people in a very short time.

Not long ago aerial messages were mostly novelty announcements like wishing someone a happy anniversary or flying a proposal for marriage. But today most of the messages are advertisements for special events coming up, for products or services, or for a political candidate.

These banners or billboards are usually pulled behind airplanes though some with extra large billboards or banners have used helicopters also. Still others write their message on a blimp or use a remote controlled balloon to sell their product. Any way it is done, a message in the sky almost demands to be read by everyone aware of its presence. Advertisers have found aerial ads to be a low cost but effective way to get their message before a large audience quickly.

A more recent form of aerial advertising is night ads. These are lighted messages that can best be read once the sun goes down. One wonders if some of them might be reported as UFO’s though a quick read of the message shows it is genuine and often helpful information.

The display is made in the same way the message on the bank marquee is made, with lights forming the words or numbers. The computerized moving characters appear on the underside of the plane, from wing to wing. One company states the advertising message is displayed on a 36 foot long grid containing 252 lights. Each letter is eight feet tall.

The moving letters are about eight feet high and are made of high intensity individual lights. Like the bank sign, the message can blink on and off, can be made bold, can travel right or left, can scroll up or down, and can sweep right or left. By using a creative variety, the attention of the audience is kept as they wonder what else it will say.

This display, though not yet in color, has several advantages over daytime banner ads. The preparation of the message is just a matter of typing the words or numbers into the computer. The message can be repeated or reworded for variety. There is no need for risky low level flying to get the message into the air as with banners.  The aerial night ad can be longer and contain more information also. A disadvantage is that people are generally indoors at night and less likely to read the message.

Someone interested in this form of advertising should first work on wording their message. It is recommended that it not exceed 45 characters for this is the amount that can be scrolled across the plane during the 17 seconds of a pass. Of course, be sure all the information you want to convey is in those letters. Next, check the internet to see if a company that provides airplane banners is available to the audience you want to target. The effort and expensive will most likely pay off for writing in the sky, whether in daylight or dark, demands to be read.
