5 Reasons to Celebrate Your Brand Anniversary with Out-of-Home

Posted by Jennifer Hurley on Jan 25, 2018 4:36:16 PM

Not everyone looks forward to their birthday (especially when phrases like "Pushing 40" and "Reaching 50" are the norm) – but brands sure do. They have cause for celebration as their companies have withstood the challenges of the marketplace over many decades, and have a legacy to show for it. It's honorable to evolve into a respected brand that resonates with local communities and global citizens alike. So when that milestone hits,  cultural phenomena like The Phantom of the Opera, shout it out like a two-and-a-half-year-old does when they turn three!

Here are five reasons to celebrate your brand with OOH this year:

1. Brand History Reinforces Consumer Trust

With barriers to entry lower than ever for new businesses, legacy brands' strength lies in their history and the relationships they have built with their customers. Reinforce your tagline, like Geico did with "Savings & Service" to toast 75.

2. Never "Forget" An Anniversary with Bold OOH

A billboard is just about the biggest reminder a brand can post. Think of it as a super-sized birthday card that amplifies awareness and turns heads. Here's how Coca-Cola celebrated 100 years of the Coca-Cola bottle:

3. Boost Employee Pride

When some of the world's largest organizations didn't exist a decade ago and consolidation is shrinking industries, it's more important than ever to celebrate milestones. Besides, nothing says "Winning" like reaching your 150th anniversary!

4. Thank the Local Community For Their Support

Local residents are the lifeline to homegrown businesses, and these businesses fuel the town and community by providing jobs, visitors and vitality. Take the time to recognize their support and further reinforce the power of community.

5. Pure Pride - Your Company Made It!

Through the ebbs and flows of the economy, and addition and depletion of competitors, when your company is the one still chugging along – celebrate! Especially when it's for  "70 stinkin' years"....that's a lot of flushes!
