The Advantages of Vehicle Branding for your Marketing Campaign

Mean Wraps - Advertising

In today’s competitive marketing environment, campaign managers are on a constant lookout for advertising techniques that make their image stand out against the background of noisy messages being imposed by billboards, the internet and television. Grabbing the attention of your target audience is getting more challenging by the day; which is why many savvy marketing consultants the country over recommend branding company vehicles to get your company image out while on the go.

Vehicle branding is nothing new, and you’ve likely had your eye caught by a car or two as you drive about on your daily activities. This is proof of the effectiveness of this medium; but if that is not enough to convince you, then here are a few incredible benefits to branding your car.

Passive marketing

Your company cars are out and about on a daily basis, which makes them the perfect vehicle for advertising (if you’ll excuse the pun). How many people do you think take a look at your car on a daily basis? Of course if there is nothing memorable about it, these people will simply forget that they passed you. If, however, your car is wrapped with professional branding, you are relaying your brand to passers-by without doing much more than going for a pleasant drive.

Cost-effective advertising

A vinyl wrap on your car will cost you a fraction of what most other advertising mediums will, partly due to the reasonable cost of car wrapping, while other costs associated with the process of advertising are also cut. Billboard rentals and television air-time can be immensely expensive, so much so to be out of reach for small businesses. Vehicle branding on the other hand, fills this gap admirably.

Spreading brand awareness

A car will travel much further than a billboard or flyer, which means that it enables communication with a wider target audience by covering more areas. Instead of relying on a billboard to attract the attention of potential customers in a specific area, a wrapped car will be able to spread your message further, in a clearer fashion, and to greater effect.

Marketing restrictions! What restrictions?

If something about your company image is not easily marketable due to marketing taboos and restrictions, you might find that sourcing a communicative medium is more of a challenge than you thought. The good news is that your car is your property, which means that many of these marketing restrictions can be bypassed according to your preference (within reason of course), which makes it ideal for industries that are limited by restrictions on traditional advertising mediums.

Advertise your business by wrapping your car

Mean Wraps - Vehicle Branding

Car wraps are a bold way to introduce your company to the world. An effective design that is eye-catching immediately delivers the most important information and facts about your business. Drivers on the roads around you will have only a few seconds to take in your car wrap design, so using a great design to strike a balance of being attention-grabbing but not too distracting is vital.

Cut to the chase.

Keep your design short because building name recognition is critical for small businesses. Your design of the company name is the most prominent aspect of the wrap. Prospective customers will understand what your business is about if you keep the design short and sweet. Your wrap should include two forms of contact, but the main purpose of the design is to get people to remember the company.

In addition to promoting brand awareness through your car wrap, make sure to keep up a strong SEO presence. If you can get your website to be the first result, when you do a search for your company name, prospective clients will find their way to you, too.

Be informative

Make your design clear and stand out. Promoting the name of your company is still top priority, but you’ll need to include a little more information. The design features should have a brief list to clarify what the business does. A flamboyant design is only good if its message is clear. Make sure people understand who you are and what you do in one glance with words, images or both.

Dare to go the distance.

When doing a car wrap design for your business it is the perfect opportunity to go big, such as, thinking to use large lettering and bright colors. The more compelling your design, the better it is for business. Remember, drivers have only a few seconds to take in the design. Obvious is superior.

Embrace the car designs that fully wrap over the vehicle, so that your company name and logo are visible from every single angle. Prominent wrap colors can be another way to draw attention to your car. This will make it more likely that other drivers will take notice of your car.
