A Passion for Escalators and Advertising


Do you remember your first ride on an escalator?

Mine was when I was 8 years old. I was taking my first international trip out of Kenya and rode it at the airport, begging my parents to let me ride it over again and again. Even today, riding an escalator provides a glimmer of excitement as I grab the handrail and step on a wonderful piece of moving machinery.

It’s not difficult to imagine the escalator ride as a visceral experience, after all, it was originally designed over 100 years ago as an amusement ride. Perhaps that’s the reason why my team is so excited about the potential RailEyes escalator handrail advertising brings to the daily experience of over 245 million riders daily.

These days, most of the innovation that is coming about in advertising and marketing is virtual or mobile. While the online option is not something that most businesses can afford to avoid, a good marketing strategy does not put all its eggs in one basket. The problem, however, is that viewership of traditional print media such as newspapers and magazines has significantly declined, while billboards have become more obtrusive.
