We’ve placed billboards on bathroom walls and in bathroom stalls throughout Northwestern Ontario’s most popular and high-traffic consumer and tourist destinations.
Taking care of business, with life on hold, our readers are held captive, spending on average 1-3 minutes with your ad.
Today’s consumer is more active than ever but we’ve caught them and entertain them with large, full-colour, in-your-face eye-level advertisements. Bathroom ads simply cannot be missed!
Bathroom advertising captures the undivided and uninterrupted attention of active consumers – people on the go with money to spend – in restaurants, arenas, fitness clubs and tourism centres.
It is the only medium to provide 100% gender distinction to enhance your targeted advertising efforts. And, don’t be shy to also segment by demographic profile, i.e. tourists and transients, or geographic location.
We understand the importance of location, location, location. That’s why selected only the highest-traffic venues in Northwestern Ontario. Our network is over 70 venues strong and continually growing.
