Outdoor advertising generally works best in its simplest form. The most effective ads focus on a single point, and are designed to make the message as clear and bold as possible. This allows a moving audience to absorb the message without effort. The seed has now been planted in the minds of consumers for future action, and top-of-mind awareness of your brand has been established. As a general rule, no more than ten words should be used in an out-of-home ad. Limiting to eight words is even more effective. Using a high degree of color contrast, simple imaging, and bold fonts will also give your ad the best chance at success.

Studies show that 78% of U.S. residents 16 or older surveyed have noticed transit advertising in the past month.
