Let’s take a look at the benefits of using spec art to sell billboards. We’ll be sharing a case study of a recent sale made by using the spec art method in out of home. If you’re not using spec art as a sales tool then you’re missing out! We’ve heard reports that showing a client sample ads can double your chances of making the sale. After all… we like to see what we’re buying, right?

The Case Study

Potential Client:
Keller Williams Realty

Client emailed asking for info about a digital billboard in their area.

Spec art was created for the potential client using ad ideas that most real estate companies utilize in out of home. A realtor promo ad, a listing ad and a branding (logo) ad. A meeting was set with the potential customer and the spec art and billboard information was presented to the client. Note: even if a meeting is never set, the spec art and billboard info can be delivered to the potential customer and left at their office if they are not there. A billboard informational kit is good to have to give your potential clients. They include a rate sheet, billboard photos & spec sheets, spec art for that potential customer, and promotional materials about OOH. Like this flyer (click here).

This is the spec art that was presented to the client:

After the client reviewed all of the information they signed up for a billboard. They requested a few minor revisions to the creative and their ads went live.
