The Advertising Bike Company is a perfectly formed outdoor media contractor. We’re big enough to manage your campaign and deliver the results you need, yet small enough to really care about your success.
From humble beginnings in 2003 with a solitary AdBike, we’ve organically grown by being good at what we do. Today we run a national fleet of advertising bikes and have introduced other digital and non-digital products into our advertising portfolio.
The calibre of brands, organisations and agencies to use of services is a testament to the value of advertising we offer - and our high-level of client retention speaks volumes about our credentials. We work closely with an assortment of companies spanning the UK from blue-chips to regionally focused SMEs across numerous sectors. Take a peek at our gallery, you’ll recognise a few names.
Our AdBikes are uniquely urban and eco-friendly message delivery machines, which are visually powerful both in a rolling and stationary capacity.
Each AdBike carry a surprisingly large integrated "AdPod"; this is big enough to host two sizeable 6-sheet posters (H1800mm x W1200mm) and is equipped with ample onboard storage allowing our savvy promotional riders to double-up as a built-in street team.
By injecting a dose of pedal power into your next advertising campaign, you’re committing to a fun, high-impact and compelling way to effectively reach your target audience. We can immerse our AdBikes into a range of different day-to-day environments and high-frequency locations to target the hotspots other traditional platforms can only dream of.
Taking the sandwich board of old concept to a higher level, AdWalkers unleash front and rear advertising to stand above the crowd. Acting as roaming human billboards, AdWalkers are fast becoming a more effective alternative to standard hand-to-hand leafleting.
Using our sister company Digivans North we can deliver perfectly targeted, responsive and up-to-the-minute DOOH advertising campaigns. Using colourful, crisp and bold LED screens, our digital billboards demand attention wherever they go.
Door to door leaflet distribution is still one of the most cost-effective ways of getting your message across to the public – and by using GPS-tracked, adult only distributors we ensure this is carried out with efficiency and aplomb.
We know a thing or two about what makes a great campaign - so if you need help on the design side, our creative team are at your disposal. Due to our bulk-buying power we command fantastic rates on leaflet and poster printing.
CEO, PONTEFRACT RACECOUSE
"Having put together different advertising campaigns over a number of years, we are well placed to judge the effectiveness of The Advertising Bike Company and feel that our relationship with them has been good value for money. We would encourage anyone thinking of this form of advertising to give it a go. "
MD, PYPER YORK
"People stop and look at our posters when on their AdBike, so we know that our message is hitting our key audience slap between the eyes. We can target the timing of the advertising for maximum impact when you need it, with no risk of poster-blindness or message fatigue. "
STORE MANAGER, ATKINSONS
"Atkinsons have used both the AdBikes and Digivans to boost our sales events, and in both cases Steve and his team have significantly helped to increase footfall and contributed to the overall success of these promotions. Represents fantastic coverage and exposure on relevant platforms that offers great value for money. "
HEAD OF MEDIA, JUPITER ADVERTISING
"We’ve worked with The Advertising Bike Company on recruitment campaigns for clients in various sectors including tech, banking, NHS, logistics and more. I have always been impressed with the customer service we receive and the AdBikes and Digivans always look great and deliver results. "
Through franchising, we can now offer an exciting, ethical and fun business opportunity for enthusiastic individuals who would like to work outdoors and who will thrive on the buzz of working within the advertising industry.
We don’t demand any prior advertising experience and despite a common misconception, you also don’t need to be at the peak of physical condition to pedal an AdBike.
However, we are looking for people who are entrepreneurial, take pride in what they do and who will be able to effectively communicate “The ABC” concept to potential advertisers. Crucially, you must be able to work comfortably alongside us and follow our proven business systems.
The ethos behind our franchise network is for the franchise to develop a business in their local territory and execute advertising campaigns within this same territory. This local business will, from time to time, be complemented by national campaigns that have been generated by “The ABC” central office.
If this sounds like something you can see yourself doing, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat.
