In simple terms, vehicle wrap advertising, or car wrap advertising, is a method of advertising your product or business by placing the logo or image associated with it on a car or other type of vehicle. Vehicle wrap advertising has, over the years, gone through both periods of intense popularity and intense dislike. However, we cannot deny its effectiveness! To help shed some light on why it is so good as an advertising method and why you should consider using it yourself, we present to you how vehicle advertising works!
Easily adjustable scale
One of the most pronounced advantages of vehicle wrap advertising works is that you can easily adjust the scale of your efforts. If you wish to test its effectiveness, you can only use a couple of vehicles. The same is true if you’re starting and are trying to first build recognition and your brand name. On the other hand, nothing stops you from significantly increasing the scale of your investment into this particular form of advertising. In fact, if you are in a business that deals with transportation of either goods or people, it is a simple matter to secure enough vehicles to use as traveling billboards to spread your brand name. And as we all know, building your brand is as important as building a good business image for yourself.
Much more effective than traditional billboards
Several aspects make car wrap more effective than traditional billboard advertisement. Firstly, it is neither easy nor cheap to secure a billboard in a good position. Developed, easily recognizable brands dominate them. On the other hand, the more inexpensive and less contested billboards are often not in locations that would justify their expense. Secondly, even if you manage to have your advert placed on a billboard in a relatively good location, it might not pay off. With how used to them we have become, and how inundated with adverts we are, it has become almost second nature to ignore traditional billboards. A car wrap is far more attention-grabbing. Finally, and just as significantly, it is much cheaper and easier to update the information on a carp wrap. Your potential customers must have correct and up-to-date information available.
The number of billboards has, ironically, decreased their effectiveness.
Good for brand building
We have mentioned some of the advantages of car wrap over static advertisements provided by billboards. However, the most important one is, of course, their mobility. It offers a unique benefit: Swift brand building. No matter how many billboards you rent out, you can’t place your brand all over the city. Car wrap advertising, on the other hand, has no such limitation. The vehicles carrying your brand will be circulating all over the city, not even only in your local area. As a side effect, this will let you reach a much broader customer base and, of course, spread your brand! As such, this makes car wrap a perfectly viable brand strategy for your business’s beginnings.
Excellent at increasing local awareness
We have mentioned starting out several times already. And yes, we believe car wrap advertisement is a fantastic way to get your business off the ground. Along with its many other advantages, car wrap will quickly increase the local awareness of your business venture. Be it a store, delivery business, or even a restaurant, if you need word out on the streets quickly, there is hardly a better way to do it. Billboards might not be available in your area. TV, radio, or internet adverts cannot guarantee they will target the people in your specific location, and we have not even mentioned the cost yet! Indeed, all other options, particularly the internet and TV advertising, can be costly.
One of the cheapest forms of advertisement
This finally leads us to the topic of the price! We have somewhat touched on it before when discussing billboards. Because bidding wars have been fought over the prime locations of those, this is a valid concern. Then, such costs tend to be dwarfed by the amounts needed to get your brand advertised on a broader scale, for example, through social media. This is simply a matter of people charging you based on how many people their platform is ‘expected’ to reach. Let us not forget, either, that this is an advertisement cost that does not consider the production of your very own ad. Together with the filming expenses, it might shock you how much money it would take to get your ad out on YouTube, for example.
The expense of internet advertising hardly justifies the cost, especially with adblockers being common!
It is a convenient way to make further use of your available resources
Vehicle wrap advertising works best if you are running a business reliant on vehicles in the first place. A taxi service. Delivery. Goods transport. The moving industry. Every such business has reliable access to a large number of company-owned vehicles. Since you own them and use them regularly anyway, why not go a step further? With car wrap, sporting your brand logo, and some tastefully chosen font, you will have an entire host helping you spread your name out there. Thus, making for one of the most convenient ways vehicle wrap advertising works for business owners!
This is particularly convenient if you are trying to build recognition for a moving company!
If you are still undecided
Now that we have presented how vehicle wrap advertising works, you might be tempted to try it! However, if you are still hesitant about it, consider the following. First, you do not need to insist on doing it on a large scale right away. Do only a couple of vehicles first, as a test. Second, there is nothing to lose. And the investment is even smaller if you have access to a lot of cars. Whether you decide to go for this type of advertising or not, we wish you the best of luck in your endeavors to improve your business!
