Why are cryptocurrency companies using Times Square advertising to draw awareness to their brand? Times Square has 1,500 businesses and an average of 180,000 employees. Considered on of NYC’s most visited tourist attractions, the NYC Bowtie averages 174 million annual pedestrians. Therefore, placing your brand on a Time Square billboard allows for large impressions from tourists and local businesses. Displaying your brand on billboards that can reach 20 stories high not only provide physical impressions, but can also boost exposure on social media platforms. These campaigns can run anywhere from 30 minutes to a month. Time Square is one of the most recognized forms of advertisements. The value of sharing and utilizing these photos and videos more often outweigh the companies initial investment. Consumers notice OOH ads more than digital, therefore connecting the two formats can increase your brand exposure.
