What are the chances of meeting your target audience in an elevator?

Assume that your customers work in an office building where they use the elevators 8 times per day and that each trip takes 30 seconds. In a given month of perhaps 20 working days you would be on an elevator 4,800 seconds or 80 minutes. This is out of (assuming a 10 hour building operating day) 12,000 minutes per month of elevator operation. Doesn’t it make sense?

Do you know how many miles

the average elevator travels every year?

  • 900,000 Units in United States (1,000,000 U.S. and Canada) - using a U.S. population of 310 million there is 1 elevator per 344 users

  • Average rise 4 - 5 floors or 40 feet

  • Average 5 people per trip

  • Each passenger averages 4 trips per day (at least), 250 days per year

  • Each elevator carries 20,000 people per year per elevator (20 people x 4 trips = 80 people x 250 days)

  • Elevators in the United States make 18 billion passenger trips per year (20,000 people per year x 900,000 elevators)
