Here at Startacus, we love it when we hear about people thinking outside the box (or off the wall in this case) when promoting their business - and this is an amazing example of just that! So, when we came across DIY store OBI’s billboard renovation campaign, we just knew we had to share it with you good folk.OBI's Billboard renovation campaign

OBI have taken the concept of billboard advertising to another level. In Germany, where the market is overwhelmed with DIY shops and hardware stores, these guys have come up with a unique idea to stand out from the crowd. They have renovated a billboard sized section of derelict buildings to show how easy it is to make it look good. OBI achieved this with the help of agency Jung Von Matt. The campaign started in January of this year.

Take a look at the short video below and see for yourself:

Now we’re not saying that you should grab a paint brush and go all Jackson Pollock in your local area – but rather ask yourself how something like this with minimal cost can be so effective. After all, even if people didn’t like it, it could have the desired impact in promoting your business or product and also mean that as a startup you stand out from the crowd.

So that’s it, nuff said. Make sure you watch the video and you’ll soon get the picture!
