Billboard Advertising in Scunthorpe

Benefits of Billboard Advertising:

Target Specific Areas

Billboards are located in areas where there are high volumes of vehicle traffic and footfall. This includes cities, towns and busy commuter routes.

Consequently, this means thousands of people will see your message everyday.

If it’s right for them, it’s right for your business too!

How long can you can advertise

Campaign lengths are based on multiples of 2 weeks. Your poster will have a life-span of approximately 4 – 6 weeks before it starts to look weathered (depending on weather conditions) so why not book your board for that length of time!

Ideally you will use multiple weeks and multiple sites to maximise your particular message. However, you can use individual billboards very tactically if they are based in the right location.

A great example is the Brigg Road billboard. The high volume of traffic across the whole day means that any advertiser will have multiple views of their message.

The key factor with billboard advertising is availability. With locations being so high profile, demand for them is high and as such availability may be at a premium. It is highly recommended that you plan well ahead to ensure you get the locations you require and your campaign deserves.

North Lincolnshire Council

In mid-July, North Lincolnshire Council approached us to run a local advertising campaign. This was to promote safe practices that would help prevent local outbreaks of COVID-19. This campaign was also supported by NHS North Lincolnshire and Healthwatch North Lincolnshire.


Lincoln UTC

The UTC came back and booked the 3 month option. They expressed a desire to run their campaign on the board that you see when driving from Tritton Road towards High Street. This was then booked for all three months.
