OREM — Graduation plans have been postponed, changed, or even canceled for students across the state because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but now they have a new option to celebrate their achievements.

The Utah-based company Blip has come up with digital billboard ads for graduates.

Andy Gotshalk, the Vice President of Sales at Blip said, "They’ve been working so hard for so long and we’re trying to do whatever we can to help them."

Parents, students, teachers, or entire schools can now pay to get their graduates on digital billboards across the state.

"The schools can organize it and have every student participate, provide the photos, provide the names. Blip will take care of the rest and be able to get that campaign going, tell them what billboards they’re on, when they’d be on the billboard and be able to execute that for them," said Gotshalk.

If parents or another individual want to do this, all they have to do is:

  1. Create a Blip account
  2. Start a new ad campaign
  3. Pick the billboards you want to display your message on
  4. Choose how long you want the ad to run for
  5. Put in your budget
  6. Create an ad from scratch or use pre-made designs

Gotshalk said, "What we’re suggesting is to create that campaign for three days. The day before your graduation, the day of, and the day after."

There's a video tutorial on the website, which can guide you through the design process.

The digital billboard ads are usually placed on the closest billboard to someone's location, or the school's location, but more can be added.

"So you see a map and you can see where your school is and you can indicate which billboards you want to get on." said Gotshalk.

The recommended three day ad campaigns cost $20 per day and they also have deals for any schools wanting to take part with their classes.
