What is billboard advertising? The definition of billboard advertising is advertising displays placed on elevated boards that are typically roadside and visible to motorists and pedestrians.

Get static (printed) and digital/LED billboard advertising in over 300 cities across the United States with a single billboard advertising company.

Although digital billboards are the fastest growing segment of the billboard industry, static billboards have greater numerosity. The construction of new billboard locations is prohibited in most cities in the United States, thereby making the existing billboard ad locations all the more valuable. Despite this fact, billboard rental rates remain competitively priced.

Advertisers that use billboard media typically calculate the rent-a-billboard cost-per-thousand (CPM) by dividing the monthly billboard advertising costs by the monthly gross impressions (which are first divided by 1,000).

The Rates section, below, will answer the common question of How much are billboard advertising costs.
