    Good idea.

    Where at though?

    696?

    75?

    94?

    All are heavily trafficked every day.

    Minimum buy-in for this is likely $1500 or so, and that gets us 30 days of billboard and the production of the sign itself.

    Add to that about $1000 per month of additional time of the billboard being up.

    No offense dude, but none of those are nearly as populated as 696, 75 or 94. They aren't anywhere near Metro Detroit. If we're going for raw numbers on how many people can see it, it's gonna have to be over this way, probably on 75 or 696.

    I would have to say out of all of the Highway listed, I would have to go with 94. Either of the ones I listed in Jackson area may not be as traveled as detroit, But there is still alot of traffic on them. I would suggest putting the billboard right by the Airport somewhere. That would get the word out very quickly.

    Thats what I was thinking!

    I would either go with the airport idea, or on I-75 in oakland county, thats where the money is at.

    What about an LED Billboard? No production costs and probly cheaper since ur sharing time with other ads.

    I would have to say if you were wanting to put up a series of Billboards 75 would possible be the best place to start putting them up since it runs from Flordia, All the way up to Canada. That may be the best bet to even just put one up, But I also think that over by Metro Airport would also be a good choice.

    I was thinking something like near the 696 - 75 junction probably the #1 spot in Michigan. Or as a backup I'd like to see it on 696 right before you pass the Detroit Zoo going East. I honestly can't think of areas that would get more exposure then those. With a bunch of people pitching in the cost would be minimal the exposure would be HUGE.

    I wouldnt worry bout the type of billboard more about the location. There is a new LED billboard on 696 but it sucks because it does stick out because it lights up but the location is bad and you have to pay attention to it to follow it to it's current location.

    I stand corrected. The new LED is on 696 just before the 75 interchange. Pretty sweet location.

    Why only one? Most advertisers are being hit hard. This is a great idea, but the wording would need to be chosen very carefully. Especially assuming national attention was a goal, not just local.

    I've been communicating with the sales rep. from Lamar advertising for doing just this. Right now he is putting together pricing options. Right now he feels the best deal will be for the sign located on M-59 near Van Dyke.

    Well if we get one of those LED billbords, than we should be on multiple bords, because you are only on it for five seconds every 30 or something like that. So get it up on 94, 96, 75, and 696. But if you want MHO than I say get a traditional one, one on 75 just north/south of 75, it is most likely the most traveled spot in Michigan.

    i work down that way and traffic is stacked up there every day. Perhaps not as many cars/day as some other locations, but would still be in a very high traffic area.

    If we get one on I94 near the airport we can not only inform local Michigan residents, but also people from different states as well as different countriesflying in and out of Metro Airport.
