The reported $250,000 investment includes more than 5,000 outdoor advertisements, including benches and stickers at bus stops and subways. With so much marketing attention being focused on the digital space, it’s great to see that one of the pioneers of online advertising – and a proponent of “the right ad to the right people at the right time” – understands the effectiveness of a well placed ad on a bench.
