Testimonials

We have advertised with Blackbelt Outdoor Advertising in multiple locations over the past few years and are very pleased with the service we have received. The locations of our boards, both static and digital, have provided the visibility that we desired and at rates that we believe are fair.

Blackbelt advertising has been really great to work with. One thing that really stands out is that Dunkin is very proactive with our account. He is the person calling us each month to ask about new programs or incentives that might have changed, so that our advertising is in step with what Ford is doing on a national basis.

Marion Bank and Trust Company has been delighted with our advertisement with Blackbelt Outdoor on the digital billboards located in Selma and most recently, Clanton. It has been very easy to make changes as needed on our advertisement with just a phone call. We have been very pleased and look forward to continued service.

Working with BlackBelt Outdoor Advertising has been an easy, efficient and effective addition to my marketing plan. I was initially concerned with developing a billboard advertisement, simply because I have no experience with it. However, Mr. Allred listened to my ideas and worked with me to come up with a great advertisement, which has been a great boost to the growth of my business. I would highly recommended anyone looking to reach more potential clients to talk with Mr. Allred and find out how easy it is to add billboard advertising to their marketing plan.

Blackbelt Outdoor Advertising has taken our marketing efforts to the next level.  Their strategically placed digital billboard has given us exposure at one of the busiest intersections in Selma. We frequently hear from new and existing customers that they see our billboards on the way to work or when they go out to eat.  We even have the flexibility to change our ads from our office, which allows us to keep our ads fresh and creative.

I have dealt with Blackbelt Outdoor for my billboards for over 2 years. As a franchise for Wendy’s for over 42 years, Mr. Gatti’s Pizza and Party City, along with 5 other restaurants, I have found them to be the best of the 4 local billboard companies and 3 national companies I have used. They try to increase your business by providing ideas and suggestions and reworking boards until you are absolutely satisfied. If you are in the areas that Blackbelt Outdoor operates, I would highly recommend that you avail yourself of their services.

Lease Your Land

Are you a landowner with highway or interstate frontage? Would you like to make risk-free guaranteed income? We are constantly searching for new locations and would like to partner with you. Whether you’re looking for additional income to help cover property taxes or an easy way to save for the future, consider entering into a partnership with Blackbelt Outdoor. We are also interested in existing billboard sites or leases that you may have.

Give us a call today to see if your property qualifies. If so, then we can set up a land lease or purchase an easement.

Land leases are typically set up for monthly, bi-annual, or annual payments. Or, if you would rather have a lump sum Blackbelt Outdoor will purchase an easement. Easements can be purchased under existing billboards, or on property where a billboard(s) could be constructed. Easements are great options if you are trying to raise quick capital, or if you plan to sell your property.
