Billboards for Religious Reasons

Published by

We live in a world where religious diversity is ever-present. It is estimated that there are over 4,000 different religions practiced around the world today, and a 2020 census of religions in the United States estimates that around 75% of Americans identify with a religious group. Additionally, many people today consider themselves spiritual without necessarily categorizing themselves as religious.

There are lot of reasons why you may want to run an advertisement for a religious reason, such as to promote your place of worship, advertise your or faith-based business, or to make known some of the fundamentals of your beliefs to the public. Below we’ll show you why using an OOH (out of home advertisement) like a billboard can be a great way to achieve these goals.

Advertise for Your Religious Center

One reason why you may choose to use a billboard ad is to promote details about your religious center. It has been estimated that there are over 380,000 churches, nearly 2,800 mosques, around 1,000 Buddhist temples, and over 3,700 synagogues operating in the U.S. (and this is only just a sample of a few types of religious centers used in America today). Many of these religious centers are not-for-profit organizations that exist for the purpose of creating a community of like-minded individuals. Using a prominent advertisement like a billboard to raise awareness for your place of worship is a great way to capture the attention of the people in your area to increase attendance—especially those who may be new to the area and don’t know of all their options yet.

Market Your Religious-Based Business

There are quite a few businesses today with religious affiliations—many of them large corporations or colleges, and many of them smaller businesses. A billboard can be a great way to emphasize your company’s views and values to the public.

Promote a Specific Message

You may not even want to advertise a specific place or business with an OOH advertisement, but instead you may choose to display a specific religious teaching or message on your board. Whether it’s excerpts from text, specific commandments, or practices, you may consider using a billboard advertisement to get your message out there.
