Tips for Buying Transit Ads in Detroit

  • Consider the audience. Think about who your target audience is and what type of transit they are most likely to use. For example, if you are targeting commuters, ads on buses or trains may be more effective than ads on taxis or billboards.

  • Location is key. Research the high-traffic areas in Detroit and consider placing your ads in those locations for maximum exposure. Make sure to also consider visibility and the potential for congestion or delays that could impact the reach of your ad.

  • Use eye-catching visuals. Transit ads have a limited amount of time to grab a viewer's attention, so make sure your visuals are bold, bright, and attention-grabbing. Keep your message concise and use a clear call to action to encourage viewers to take action.
