It is important to constantly stay in the view of the audience. Thus, Advertising is not just a luxury but a necessity for any company wishing to reach and stay in the limelight of success.

In order to have a better comprehension, let us consider an example. Suppose your company launches a revolutionary product or service. However, due to lack of or poor Advertising, it does not reach the audience. Your competitor then learns about this launch and puts in a resembling product or service and follows it up with excellent advertising. As a result of this, your competitor will take away the benefits of your hard work. Now, once the necessity of Advertising has been established, the second step is to decide the most appropriate medium of Advertising for your brand. While deciding from the range of Advertising Mediums like Airport Advertising and Metro Advertising among OOH Advertising, and Online Advertising, the most important step is segmentation of the audience. Once this is done and you realize the segments that you have to target, the medium of Advertising can be chosen.

The last, and quite logically, the most important step is to associate with a reputed Advertising Agency. You will be happily surprised to see what experienced Advertising Agencies like TDI International India Limited can do to boost your business.

Metro Advertising India Growing in Popularity

Ever since DMRC (Delhi Metro Rail Corporation) began operations on December 24, 2002, the way commuters in the NCR traveled has never been the same. The thirteenth largest metro station in the world (in terms of length) offers excellent opportunities for OOH Advertising (Out-of-Home Advertising). DMRC’s potential as an advertising goldmine was realized by Indian OOH giants like TDI International India P Limited as early as 2005. With a daily ridership exceeding 20 lakh, Delhi Metro Advertising has a high viewership. The rapid rate at which DMRC has grown and the popularity of the Metro Station Ads show a promising future for Advertising at the Metro Stations.

It has been found that using mobile phones and reading ads figure among the top ways how commuters passed their time at the stations. High concentration zones and superior visibility feature among the prominent reasons for the popularity and success of the Ads at the Metro Stations. Due to the structure of the metro stations, the ads can be conveniently placed in such ways that the commuters cannot miss them. And this viewership is not just any viewership that we are talking about. According to a recent survey taken by the Times of India, around 62.5% of the total metro ridership that took part were office-going professionals and students. For most of the brands, they form the most prized audience. The earning members with the power to buy and the young generation with the affinity to buy, added with a minimum of 6 minutes which they spend at the metro station, combine to make Metro Advertising one of the most sought after forms of advertising. Thus, advertisement contracts for sites outside the metro stations, on the platforms, at the staircases / elevators, and at the entrances and exits of the stations sell out faster than hot cakes.

Another factor which aids in the popularity of DMRC Advertising is that it is a long term investment. With the corporation expanding at phenomenal speeds, the ridership and thus the viewership is also set to increase. It is expected that the average ridership of Delhi Metro will cross 40 lakhs by 2016 with a CAGR (Combined Annual Growth Rate) of 20.1%. Associate with a top DMRC Advertising Agency like TDI to turn the gaze of this fast growing audience towards your brand.

Airport Advertising India Spreading Wings of Imagination

Outdoor Advertising India attained a very important dimension when AAI opened the doors for Advertising at the Airports in India. Ever since TDI International India P Limited won the first Airport Advertising tender in 1987, the airports in India have undergone a complete change in appearance. What used to be tiresome waits at boring waiting rooms are now exciting opportunities to catch up with the latest offerings of various brands. It is an easy and fun-filled wait now, with the exciting displays and humorous ad copies bringing a smile on the passenger’s face.

What began as plain billboard displays, soon extended to other areas with pillar wraps, signage among others. Airport Advertising Agencies India have done exceedingly well to change according to the changing times and trends. Today, Out of Home Advertising faces stiff competition from online advertising. Faced with limited sites, Airport Ad Agencies India have spread their wings of imagination and come up with innovative ways to present the ads. Modern ad campaigns focus on interactivity to earn the trust of the consumers. Thus, Airport Advertisements came out of the billboards and pillar wraps into a 3D environment, thereby facilitating consumer interaction. The products or models are strategically placed at the center or corners. Creativity flowed through the veins of Airport Advertising as the audience was enthralled with the innovative techniques. TDI continued to lead the innovations, putting India’s first Live Car on the billboard. Since then, car displays have become a common feature of Airport Advertising. Some might reason that the onset of internet advertising has changed the balance of the advertising world. However, going by the facts, Advertisements at the Airport continue with their popularity. 73% of the travelers still pass their time at the airports by looking at the ads. Constant focus on the announcements and limited battery charging options are some of the reasons mobiles do not grab the attention of the passengers waiting at the airports. Looking around at the ads is a much better option.

Airport Advertisements always had the best audience for the brands. Creative touches and trend-setting innovations are what it required to stay a formidable advertising option.
