Captive Audience

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!

Targeted Marketing

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.

Mobile messaging

It’s no secret mobile and smartphone usage in Canada is at its highest peak, and continues to climb. Today, over 26 million Canadians use a mobile phone of which 95% have text/SMS capabilities.

Amazingly, 98% of text messages are read. Compare that to 22% of emails, 29% of tweets and only 12% of Facebook posts. *

Why it works

Engagement: 97% of all texts are read within 4-5 minutes.

Permission-based: You can only send messages to those who have opted-in, creating a very targeted and highly involved audience.

Instant and timely: Reach 100% of your customers and contacts in a matter of seconds. Chose the exact time and date to send the perfect coupon, offer or important notice.

Trackable: Measure which messages/promos are working and which aren’t with web links, in-store coupons and callbacks.

How it works

1. Reserve a keyword

Use keywords that match your business. This not only enhances brand exposure and awareness but increases retention as well.

2.Grow your list

Using your keyword as the call-to-action on posters, social media and ads, every person who texts your keyword will be automatically added to your marketing list.

3.Send out your text

Reach 100% of your customers, in real-time, with messages they have asked for. You control the date, time of day and message, every time!
