To help your business survive and thrive, you need to advertise your products and services and ensure that people know your business even exists. While there are several ways to market your business, outdoor advertising is always a great option. Outdoor advertising includes billboards, transit advertising, point of sale displays, lamp post banners, and guerilla advertising. While there are many ways you can advertise your business, billboards have always been a great option.

Billboard advertising is a tried and true method that can help draw people to your business and help make your brand more recognizable. While the design of your billboard is extremely important in determining its success, your business could greatly benefit from marketing with a billboard. But it is not as simple as choosing your design and slapping it on a billboard. Nowadays, there are many different types of billboards that you can choose from. Picking the right style for your business could also be a factor that determines its success.

At Portaboards, we offer a variety of portable billboards that can be eye-catching and a successful piece in your marketing campaign. In today’s blog, we are going to talk about the different types of billboards to choose from and the benefits of each portable billboard that we offer. Read on to learn more and start planning your mobile billboard campaign now!

Types of Billboards

While most people think of a traditional static billboard when they think of billboards, there are many different types now that make it easier to advertise your business and catch people’s attention.


Static billboards are the ones you see lining the highway and are meant to target people in their cars. These billboards are effective because they simply sit there day after day, advertising the same thing, and slowly catching people’s attention as they commute to work, drive to a friend’s house, or are running errands. Many people make shopping decisions while in the car and this friendly and subtle billboard type can help them make the choice that supports a certain business.


Digital billboards are common in big cities. Think Times Square in New York City. Digital billboards are basically the television commercial of billboard advertising. These billboards display moving advertisements and switch from one business to the next. They are eye-catching, fast-paced, and dynamic. While these billboards can be very effective and beneficial, there are not a lot of places where you will find them.


Interactive billboards are a newer type of billboard that can truly make your business stand out. While looking at a billboard can provide you with information about a company that you need, interacting with it can create an experience that you will remember. When you create a successful interactive billboard, you can gain customers for life.


Portable billboards are another newer player in the game. These billboards can be done in a variety of ways, from bus wraps to taxi-top ads. Portable billboards are unique and eye-catching. They are a great way to market your business to your target audience. This type of advertisement is becoming more popular and is a great way to market in smaller towns and specific towns. If you want to target your hometown, having a billboard on the highway heading to another city is not going to help. With portable billboards, you can be seen by motorists and pedestrians, which can be very beneficial.

Portaboards offers a different type of portable billboard. Our billboards can be towed behind a truck or any vehicle with a hitch and driven around town. You can park it in a new location every day, drive it around during events, and help draw more people to your business.
