    I am trying to get this message to whomever places your advertising and any help in targeting this to the right person would be much appreciated. I wanted to know if you have considered advertising on billboards? My name is Terell Butler, and I work in the Saint Louis area for OUTFRONT Media formally CBS Outdoor selling billboard advertising. It is a powerful advertising medium that is out there working for you all day, every day unlike radio, direct mail, and newspapers. Billboards are the least expensive cost per exposure form of any media, and many advertisers who are currently using other forms of advertising are often shocked at the low cost of advertising outdoors.

    We have a number of strong billboards throughout the St. Louis area that would target your services very well. If you are interested in giving billboards a try, we help you design your ads at no additional cost. Good, simple creative is the key to making billboards work and getting your message out.

    Please let me know if it would be possible to set up a brief meeting with your marketing director, or at least email a simple proposal of what we can offer. I appreciate your time and look forward to hearing from you.

    **** In addition I have attached a media kit outlining our products and services, I look forward to working with you!
