Advertising Blimps - Indoor - Outdoor Print E-mail

Advertising blimps are eye-catching, easy-to-use, easy-to-inflate, and easy-to-store and use again. Their bright colors and their recognizable shape immediately draw attention. Whether used indoors, outdoors, at events or trade shows, there's a natural attraction to things which are lighter than air. Just add helium and attach the tether lines then let the blimp do all the work and bring more business to your location. Advertising blimps are a very cost-effective means of reaching thousands of potential customers. There are unlimited design possibilities with a wide range of blimp and tail colors, so that you can create an advertising blimp with true impact. You can also add a ripstop nylon skin to blimps 16ft. or larger.

Blimp Advertising Works

The following is an excerpt from a study conducted by Universal Technology Marketing Services Inc. of Allentown, Pennsylvania. The study reinforced the power of using advertising blimps as an incredibly effective marketing medium.

To verify claims made by owners and franchisees of 7-11 Convenience Stores, the parent company, Southland Corporation, retained Universal Technology Marketing Services Inc. of Allentown, Pennsylvania. UTMS was specifically requested to perform a marketing study on the effectiveness and retentive factors of the computer designed, wind tunnel tested model KB-15 advertising blimp.

The study was conducted on Thursday, January 27th on the premises of a 7-11 Convenience Store in Oakhurst, New Jersey, Ray Roussell, Manager/Proprietor. The specific date was selected as no national or regional advertising was in effect. The results of that study were as follows:
     • 54.5% of consumers within a two mile radius saw the "Pie In The Sky" Advertising Blimp flying over the 7-11 location.
     • 72.7% of those surveyed correctly answered the question involving advertising copy that appeared on the side of the blimp.
     • 47% of the respondents surveyed were going to mention the presence of the blimp to another individual, thereby increasing the potentiality of more customers being drawn to the store as a result of the advertising medium.
     • Customer counts on Thursdays at this specific 7-11 location normally average 796. Customer counts on the date the blimp was flying were 821.

We at Aerial Products believe that you have the same opportunity to conduct advertising research at your business by purchasing a blimp and tracking this type of increased traffic.

Think about the last time you were driving along and saw a manned blimp, a remote control unmanned blimp, or an advertising blimp high above building height. You probably weren't even sure which type of blimp you saw, but you knew it was a blimp and you noticed it. In the height of the real estate boom, our advertising blimps were sprinkled all over the country with the myriad of home builder logos on them drawing potential homebuyers to their locations. The housing market and that landscape has changed, but what hasn't changed is the need for companies of all sizes to increase exposure, brand identity and boost sales. From home builders to karate studios, from savings banks to car dealerships, or whatever business or industry you are in, an advertising blimp can serve a valuable role.

Blimp advertising means your business will get noticed. But sometimes it's not about advertising. We have all sorts of customers worldwide that create their blimps for entertainment. We've created blimps for rock bands, surfers, hobbyists, family picnics, 4th of July events, and other affinity groups just so those people could have fun and exude pride and support. These blimps range from simple custom designs to the extreme -- lights, strobes, and remote control models that drop ping pong balls and shoot silly string.

Our Advertising Blimps Versus the Competition
So what defines a quality blimp and a not-so-great one? First of all, it depends on the type of material used. We use 3.5 mil thick polyurethane which has excellent expansion qualities and helium retention. We did some field testing of the polyurethane's durability and found that we were able to over-inflate one of our blimps to almost 4 times its size before we caused a minor rupture. That wasn't even a full blowout. You do the math on a 12 foot blimp. In other words, we don't worry about you busting our blimp wide open by over-inflating it. But holes and tears do happen if the blimp contacts sharp objects, so we always send along patch kits with your order.

The other commonly used material for advertising blimps is PVC, which is thicker than polyurethane but does not have the helium retention ability that polyurethane has. The cost of helium is going up and this factor should be taken into account if you plan to purchase a PVC blimp. Buy a quality polyurethane product from Aerial Products. You can also add a nylon skin to make it more UV resistant and last longer.

Polyurethane versus PVC

Compared to alternatives our products are more cost-effective. A major reason is that we use a better-performing material called Polyurethane, which is designed to hold the Helium molecule. Cheaper products made of PVC or urethane-coated nylon lose helium quickly - which increases your costs. That means a cheap product costs more in the long term.
