Attorney Billboard Advertising
Billboard advertising has been around since 1889. The world's first 24-sheet billboard was displayed at the Paris Exposition. The format was quickly adopted for various types of advertising, especially for circuses, traveling shows, and movies.
It took 88 years until Law firms adopted the use of billboard advertising. In 1977, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision striking down prohibitions against advertising by attorneys.
Since then, billboards promoting law firms have popped up almost everywhere.
But billboard advertising presents a unique challenge as they have limited exposure time for viewers.

Human Behavior Insights
You can employ testing that tracks emotional reactions of test participants while viewing the ads and combining the study with post viewing survey questions.
This methodology employs FACS (Facial Action Coding System) which tracks the participants' micro facial expressions to determine what emotions they’re feeling while viewing the billboard.
This allows marketers to determine which elements of the billboard attract the most attention.
By analyzing emotional responses through surveys immediately after viewing the billboard, researchers can gather valuable insights into the effectiveness of the message.
Having the data from these studies enables you to make changes by optimizing your message and understand what demographic groups it will resonate most with. With this data, it will provide a clear path for geotargeting and minimize advertising spend.
