Electronic Message Centers from Holiday Signs

[singlepic id=142 w=480 h=360 float=right]

An Electronic Message Center from Holiday Signs is one of the most effective and flexible advertising methods available. Businesses often select their advertising medium and message based on cost per thousand exposures of their message to the public. On this basis, no other form of advertising comes close to matching the efficiency of an electronic message display.

Compare the National Averages:

Medium Cost per 1,000 (National Average)
Newspaper $7.39
Radio $5.47
Television $6.26
LED Message Board $0.15

How does an electronic message center deliver such great value? Assume, as an example, that a business spent $30,000 on a new Electronic Message Center and that it has a useful life of 10 years. The amortized daily cost of this sign is $8.21 a day. New LED units are so power efficient that we only need to add $0.20 a day for running costs giving your business a daily message center expense of $8.41. If your location has 20,000 cars passing every day, your cost per 1,000 exposures is only $0.41 (counting drivers only!). The only form of advertising that’s more effective is word of mouth!
