What is Runningboards Marketing

Everyone has a message that they want others to see: You display that message to the world. Whether that message is a company’s advertisement, a political campaign message, or even an embarrassing Happy 16th Birthday message parked in front of a high school, you drive people’s message pretty much wherever they need it seen.

But let’s face the facts, it’s 2021, and many messages are just lost in the noise.

Companies are buying radio ads that people often don’t hear because they change the station, or they listen to commercial free online services like Spotify and Pandora. Advertisers are spending thousands of dollars on billboards that people end up ignoring. And with all the competition for customers’ attention, it’s difficult for most to create ads that stand out from their competition's.

How it's Done

Meet DAV (pronounced “dave”), our Digital Advertising Vehicle. He provides our franchisees these unique advantages:

    VISIBILITY - With DAV’s high-resolution LED displays it’s nearly impossible for your clients’ ad to be blocked, skipped or ignored.

    MOBILITY - Drive clients’ message directly to wherever their audience works or plays.

    CUSTOMIZATION - With our software, RBM Velocity, clients can easily adjust their messages as their target audience changes.

    ACCOUNTABILITY - RBM Velocity also provides tracking reports of when and displayed.
