When you are looking to advertise your business, posters are a great option, for numerous reasons. For one thing, many companies that print them, provide a range of materials – you can have posters printed on PVC, fabric, and even wood, if you wish. Thus, making them one of the most versatile options for advertising your brand and business. 

If you want to advertise your business effectively, you may be wary of using such an old-school method. But some old ways, are the best ways! 

Here are 5 reasons why posters can help to boost and benefit your business. 


When you have a small business, you don’t want to spend a fortune on advertising. Luckily, depending on the size of the poster and where it is placed, you may be surprised at how affordable your company’s poster may be. For more information on affordability and choosing the right poster for your business, head over to a website like Soyang Europe for more guidance. 


Many people who have a business, may feel that the most effective way to advertise their enterprise in the real world (not online), is with flyers. However, this is not the case. Flyers can be extremely expensive to print and are usually made of paper. Meaning that when it rains, or there’s a blustery day, the flyers may be spoilt, or blown away. A poster placed at a bus station or on a highway, can last many months, and will likely attract a steady stream of customers in that time.


You can have an effective advertising campaign with a single poster. But what if you had many posters created in different sizes? This would allow you to place them all over your hometown, creating more brand awareness than a single poster alone.

Posters also offer more range relating to images, texts, and of course, the topic they are advertising, especially when compared to advertising in a newspaper or magazine. 


Many people have seen posters on public transport that move or, in some cases, are interactive. This is great on the face of it, but it can be extraordinarily expensive to have these tech posters designed and maintained. A simple poster is easier to create than a moving image, can be hung pretty much anywhere, and will promote your brand without hassle. They are also accessible 24/7, which compared to moving images that may only exist at some subway stations, means they are more effective overall at advertising. 


When you think of advertising on the radio or in a newspaper, the format is usually the same. Yes, there may be some sound effects thrown into a radio advert, but very few things can truly be new and unique with this advertising medium. 

By collaborating with a graphics designer, or perhaps a talented artistic friend, your poster can be a truly individual piece. This will draw attention due to its unique design, and of course, may even be noted as one of the most unusual (but effective) pieces of marketing for your brand. So, don’t be afraid to go big and bold, when advertising with a poster.
