Our Regional Account Manager, Will, first approached the Rotherham-based college back in 2019 over the phone, introducing himself and explaining the various products and services we offer through outdoor advertising. Carolyn Granger, Marketing Manager for Thomas Rotherham College, said: “Adverta offered a great competitive package for bus advertising for a 12-week booking period providing great exposure across the region.” 

The college had previously used a mix of outdoor, online, radio and print advertising and decided to try bus advertising as it reaches a wide audience targeting both prospective students and their parents/carers.

Over the last year, Thomas Rotherham College has continued to use one particular bus panel type, the Super Rear. We asked Carolyn what it was about this panel that appealed most to the college and she said they had been impressed with the deal offered to her. Thomas Rotherham College has used two different bus companies in the past to advertise their campaigns; Powells Bus Company and TM Travel. Both bus companies are located in and cover the South Yorkshire area where the college is located. By selecting these two bus companies they were able to cover their target audience and reach maximum exposure within the college’s local area.

Carolyn described Adverta as being friendly, efficient and easy to work with. This is wonderful feedback for us; customer service is incredibly important to us and we strive to ensure our campaigns run as smoothly as possible from start to finish. Finally, we asked Carolyn what she felt the best three things about using bus advertising are and she responded: “Bus advertising provides a great opportunity to share our message to a wider audience and the price and longevity of the campaigns make bus advertising a great option.” She also added that the buses are able to facilitate less mainstream routes, ensuring their message is seen across a wider area.
