India is a place of huge population and innumerably branched-out never-ending roads. And it is in these roads that the modern Indian brands are fixing out their modes of ambient advertising which promotes the out-of-home breeds of alternative media. This research is based on the travelling characteristics of the Indian crowd and how their traffic activities affect the productivity of billboard positioning of Indian advertising content. The study will mainly be focused on the crowd of Bangalore City. The positioning of the brands creative content with due respect to the lighting, obstruction to view, viewing angle, hoarding type and size may be factored on the traffic and travelling characteristics of the crowd of that specific environment. The billboard advertising strategies of the outdoor advertising agencies and the factors on which consumers response to billboard advertising gets affected are the main igniters which helped me initiate this particular project. The advantage with billboard advertising is that you can create the brands top-minded recall exposure through innovative creativity but the disadvantage attached to it is that the number of exposures to the creative message of the brand is impossible to measure.

Data collection Method

There are mainly two types of data collection methods which are as follows:

Primary data Primary data is the one that is being collected by the researcher itself and is being collected for the first time. Researcher has collected this data with a specific purpose of studying the problems. Primary data in the research process would be collected by filling up questionnaire from the respondents- in this case, the marketing professionals from the various companies across Bangalore.

This data can be in the form of articles in magazines, journals, government reports or any other historical data. It might be the different articles in newspaper and on the internet blogs. Secondary Data that was used by me are delivered from the journals , reports , videos , through the net and other relevant published material.

Instruments used to collect the data :-

The instrument selected for the primary data is a structured questionnaire which includes queries regarding which types of billboards can easily catch the audience , is it really a brand recall advertisement or what are the major obstruction to view and how does the consumer responds to billboard adverting on road?

Limitation of the study

The major barriers in conducting the survey are the following: Time limitation o For a researcher time has always worked as b barrier to his or her research process, as we are conducting the survey in different areas of the Bangalore city and observing the marketing professional, time is always worked as a limitation to this research.

Geographic limitation o As we all know that the various industry in Bangalore where the marketing professional work is quite scattered s cover big distances from one company to the other. So geography is a major barrier.
