Marketing Idea No. 4 – Billboard that provides electricity

April 19, 2007by Shahriar Amin3

The problem

We have acute electricity problems. And we have way too many billboards.

Strategy

Outdoor agencies use commercial power to light up the billboards. What they can simply do, is give some of that power, lets say for 3 -4 hours a day, to illumintae any house just beside that billboard. In so doing, the agency itself can earn some much needed soft spots. And more importantly, some family will have a readymade solution to a problem that should not have been there in the first place – electricity.

Apart from commercial power, billboards can be devised to generate and store solar power generated electricity, which again can be passed on for personal consumption

Organizations that can benefit from this idea

Any OOH agency, Rupayon, Advance Ad or anyone else, can gain from this idea in this very competitive OOH category. Also some corporate houses can gain valuable CSR points by letting the billboards that they use to advertise be used for this purpose

    Or better still they could not use DESA power but rather put in a small solar panel that can generate the electircity to power the billboard.
