We are seeking $200,000 to build a 60’ X 20’ digital billboard along highway 401, Canada’s busiest highway. This is the largest standard size for a digital billboard.
Digital billboards have been shown to be 6 times more effective than static billboards.
Where will the funds go?
The entire amount will go toward the construction of the billboard. The type of structure will depend on the amount of funds available.
What do I get in return?
You get a once in a lifetime opportunity to have your own message or ad displayed on the billboard itself!
For example, a $10 contribution will get your message shown 100 times. And a top contribution of $1000 will get your message shown a whopping 20,000 times! Each exposure lasts 10 seconds, which is on the top end of the industry standard of 8-10 seconds.
Normally, putting something up on a billboard takes a contract and several thousand dollars per month. But with your contribution, you can have your message on a 60ft billboard for only 10 bucks!
What can I use my message for?
Pretty much anything! If you have a business, you can use this opportunity to promote it. If you’re an individual, you can display any message you wish, as long as it’s not offensive to the general public.
Here are just a few examples...
- An ad for your business
- Support a charity, ask for a donation
- Share your opinion (ex. don't text & drive, bullying, etc...)
- Show your approval or disapproval of a political party
- Share a photo of your newborn child
- Tell your spouse that you love him/her
- And so on...
How often will my message be shown?
If the entire project gets funded, it amounts to roughly one year of messages/ads. Therefore, the first year will be entirely dedicated to showing messages/ads from our contributors. Since no advertising revenue will be generated during that time, we will absorb the operating costs.
How do I submit my ad?
When the campaign ends, you will receive an email from us indicating the dimensions of the image required and accepted filetypes. You'll simply send us your file by email and we'll put it up on the billboard once it's functional.
What if you don’t get all the funds?
We will use what has been contributed and fund the rest ourselves. It will not affect the displaying of your message or ad.
