Stop Waiting Around
Our first step in promoting this new, exciting technology, was to create a central message that would capture the audience. We did this with the following catchphrase:
"STOP WAITING AROUND"
Starting with print advertising, we carried this message through various media outlets throughout the Central Virginia area. However, this was only the beginning. Not only did we catch the attention of those around with a bold title, we also focused the copy on the top three benefits of using the new Clockwise system. By keeping it simple and to the point, we were able to effectively get the central message to those in the Lynchburg area.
No Appointment Necessary
With the print advertising section settled, it was time to enter into phase two of our plan...the billboards! By mixing both electronic and static billboards, we were able to get the message out both effectively and efficiently. It was important to keep similar messaging as what we presented within the print advertising. Our goal was to get the main points to the audience as quickly as possible.
With our electronic billboards, we knew we needed to think outside of the box. We had two things that were very clear:
- Clockwise was a service that everyone needed to know about
- These billboards needed to be eye-catching, sending the right message to each person that would see it
From these two pieces of information, we thought that a live feed would be the BEST option for CVFP and for the customers at large. The goal was to have a clock that would inform the community of the wait time for the specific CVFP Immediate Care location. This would allow people to see the need for skipping the wait while giving them relevant information as they go down the road.
Working with McBride Sign Company (one of our clients) and Lamar Advertising, we were able to turn this thought into a reality and have three electronic billboards throughout Lynchburg.
In addition to the electronic billboards that were running in high traffic areas across the Lynchburg region, we also designed and place static billboards throughout Central Virginia to let people know that the CVFP Immediate Care Facilities were definitely a top choice when it came to caring needs.
Each static billboard contained the same key messaging and served as an informational way for those not affiliated with CVFP to see what all of the "hype" was about. In order to use our promotion dollars wisely, we decided to only keep the static billboards up during key times of the year. Each board was placed in strategic locations where it could receive the highest traffic count possible.
