    Bus advertising example in south east

    Key Result - Shortis Group in Norwich use Bus advertising for a range of PR opportunities, resulting in additional coverage on and offline with Archent Limited, publisher of the East Anglian Daily Times.

    The Campaign

    When Kevin Shortis opened his second car spares store nearly 50 years ago, he booked an advert on the back of a Bus. Now five decades later, the Shortis Group, now with 81 trading sites across the UK, has again trusted the Bus to promote its message with a Mega Rear advert.

    The original advert is still on the back of a Bus today - a vintage 1964 ACE Reliant at East Anglia Transport Museum.

    Richard Shortis said: “It’s lovely that we managed to get the two buses together. We have done a lot of Bus advertising over the years. It’s very prominent and eye-catching - it’s a brilliant way to raise awareness.”

    Exterion Media’s range of Bus advertising formats ensure that your message cannot be missed, making your brand the talk of the town.

  • Exterion Media - South Western rail Advertising

    The average traveller spends 7 minutes waiting for a train and 13 minutes travelling looking at advertising. National Rail advertising is ideal for call to action campaigns as potential customers have the time to absorb the details of your advert and even dial a number or access a website as they wait. Research shows that the longer consumers spend looking at adverts, the more likely they are to remember and act on them.
