THINK BIG! — The Update

So the THINK BIG! billboards around Boise were indeed for Big-O Tires.

No, they are not for Micron Technology, as had been mentioned in the previous comments. I think the confusion came from the fact that these were also running on the digital billboards near the Connector and also on State St. This billboard was immediately followed by a recruiting billboard for Micron.

End result? It generated some interest, but the payoff was incredibly poor. Decent concept but the execution leaves quite a bit to be desired.

  1. Does gimmick messaging ever work for differentiating highly commoditized products? I’m sure Big O has something worth talking about. I know first hand that the local franchisees are very supportive of community activities. Maybe start there …

  2. Anonymous — from an audience standpoint, I’d say the payoff was poor. To me, there’s no real call to action, or incentive to do anything as a result of seeing those billboards.

    Add to it the fact that the colors on the board make it look more like its competitor (Les Schwab Tires) than something for Big-O. Take a drive by a Les Schwab and you’ll see what I mean.

    But as with anything else, its just my opinion.
