Contraceptive Conferring Cabbies? What is This You Ask?

You’re probably wondering what a contraceptive ad fromTrendHunter has to do with Vancouver Car Wraps.  No, we aren’t in the business of selling contraceptives.  What we are in the business of is vehicle wraps and more specifically, mobile outdoor marketing.

This is an example of a brilliant marketing campaign that was developed for Valentines Day that Trojan is running in New York City.  And while you don’t necessarily need to go this far to marketing your company, clearly a little creativity and imagination goes a long way.  That is where can assist.  Vehicle wraps and decals are one part of the parcel. They are a unique and value driven method of showing off your personality and/or business, while still protecting your assets for years. Clearly a win/win proposition. Whether you are a small business or a large business with a fleet, the same marketing concept applies.

Curious? Be sure to check out our February promotions to help get you started.

The Trojan Safe Ride Taxis Quiz Passengers on Health Issues

by Meghan Young

The road has never been safer thanks to the Trojan Safe Ride taxis. At least, when it comes to sex. Hitting the streets of New York City on Valentine’s Day, these special cabbies will be giving out prizes to promote safe sex. Now, if only they were able to give out free advice to singles looking for a fun one night stand or something more serious on what is also known as Single Awareness Day (SAD).

Part of Trojan’s National Condom Month campaign coordinate by public relations firm Edelman, the Trojan Safe Ride taxis are brilliant. Not only will people in the Greenwich Village and New York University areas of Manhattan be given health-related items, they will also be quizzed on the subject.

Marketing and Advertising Strategies – Budgeting for Small Business

Marketing and advertising strategies are part of our focus at Vancouver Car Wraps. We want to emphasize why you should include vinyl wraps and vehicle graphics in your businesses ad budget for the next year.  If you aren’t sure how to set an advertising budget, we are providing some information from industry experts on how to do this.


While Vancouver Car Wraps is based out of the Lower Mainland in British Columbia, we understand that good advice can come from anywhere.  In past we have shared some great business tips from organizations such as Small Business BC.

But another great source is The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). This member based American organization, while US based, still offers lots of free  resources to small businesses on starting, managing and advertising a business and so much more. Here they offer some advice on how to budget for and  set up an advertising budget  including pros and cons of various methods.

Vehicle Wraps Make Sense

Fixed percentage of sales – With this method, you simply determine total gross sales, then allocate a percentage of that number and commit it to your advertising budget.  Small business owners allocate two to five percent of gross annual sales, so for example:  If your annual sales are $200,000 then you spend $4,000 to $10,000 on advertising. This is a very simple method that anyone can use.


Mobile advertising whether decals, partial and full vehicle wraps can easily fit into these types of budgets. Vancouver Car Wraps can work with you and your company to get your branding out there and turn your company vehicle(s ) into 24/7 moving billboard advertisements. Feel free to drop by our office of give us a call or request a FREE, No obligation quote to find out exactly what we are talking about.

 Of course there are certain variables based on the vehicle at hand but if you compare utilizing vehicle graphics and wraps to other advertising methods, you’ll quickly see how much more you’ll get for your advertising dollar.

Vehicle Wraps for a Fleet of Vehicles or just one.

Whether you have one, two or a fleet of vehicles that you want to wrap, this advertising method does work.  Compared to traditional forms of advertising, vehicle advertising can reach more consumers at a lower Cost Per Thousand Impressions (CPM) than any other form of outdoor advertising.

Measuring the cost of advertising can sometimes be challenging even by professional marketer standards but with a vehicle wrap there are statistics to back up their affordability.  While these stats are US based, you just cannot ignore the effectiveness of car wraps and graphics to promote your small business and to attract new clients.

Consider these statistics compiled by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America:

  • “More than 95% of Americans are reached by media targeting vehicle drivers and passengers.
  • One vehicle wrap can generate between 30,000 – 70,000 impressions daily.
  • Fleet vehicle advertising boosts name recognition 15 times greater than any other form of advertising.
  • 30% of mobile outdoor viewers indicate they would base a buying decision on the ad they see.
