3 Facts About Truck-Side Advertising for Startup Carpet Cleaning Businesses

Posted on

For young Australians, owning a business is no mean feat due to the number of resources required for investment. Additionally, advertising a business can be a costly and time-consuming affair that involves high consultation fees. For a startup carpet cleaning business, vehicle advertising can be a cheaper alternative. Most people spend several hours every day in vehicles; therefore, they are likely to notice vehicle signs when driving past them. This article reviews some top facts about vehicle signage that might help startup carpet cleaning businesses get a competitive edge.

Truck Advertising Helps Bypass Restrictions -- Installing conventional billboards for a business can have some limitations including payment of rates, place of installation and timing. However, with a mobile advertisement, you bypass such restrictions without necessarily breaking any laws or local regulations. Vehicle signs are ideal for investors who are just getting started in the business, as they might not have adequate capital to adhere to all the laws and regulations on traditional types of advertisement. Notably, forms of publications, such as newspaper, radio or television, can be quite pricier for startup business owners. 

Ability to Reach a Large Market -- Outdoor vehicle advertisement is effective because of the ability to target a large group of potential customers. For example, during heavy traffic, motorists and pedestrians alike are likely to see your truck bearing signs of your carpet cleaning business. Most of these commuters are within your niche market because they probably own a carpet. After viewing a truck-side advertisement, some commuters will decide to try your services. Further, when potential customers see truck-side advertising, they might perceive such a company as successful and established; hence, generate a buzz and positive opinion about your business.  

Ability to Stretch Your Advertising Fees -- Putting ads on traditional media platforms such as TV and newspapers can only go so far. For instance, an ad on TV can air twice a day for about a week or so depending on your budget. For newspapers, an advertisement segment can be placed for a day or two. On the other hand, vehicle signage can last for at least a year without incurring extra fees. Another advantage of vehicle advertising is that you can always switch to another design as you see fit because you are not restricted to a competitive environment. Therefore, you can do much more with truck signs at a fraction of the cost that would have been used on traditional media platforms. In this sense, your carpet cleaning business will have a good return on investment.
