i have seen several big business around town with vinyl wrapped around the entire car. So i thought of the idea of getting my vechiles wrapped, asked friends if they have seen such and such with wrapped vechiles and they say yes, then they say it stands out, makes u remember.


i am trying to figure out , how much something like that cost. thought about going to one or two of the businesses and asking them.

Would it be worth doing. It would be a moving billboard and more noticable

Matt,

Tony from AMW offers this service so he should be able to give you an idea. Would you be wrapping your black pickup?

Well, visually I am sure it would look fantastic. But I am guessing it's gonna cost at least a couple grand.

Personally, I would be doing a lot more outrageous stunts to build up my brand before I did that. Like I would mount a mower to my roof or something crazy.

I like cheap, creative marketing ideas.

Also, why not paint your vehicles an outrageous color where they really stand out. Say for instance lime green or something like that. That you could do for cheap. You could do it for REALLY cheap if you got some latex paint and rolled it with a roller. I have seen people do that before and it's hilarious. Really stands out.

I like to think of the marketing dollars as investments and how much will this or that marketing dollar give me in a return for my investment?

Do you want to go crazy? Hire a bunch of kids to help you paint your truck say with latex. It can be removed later. Have them paint it white and then paint green grass along the bottom. Take pictures and send them to the paper. Have them put their hand prints on the back and sign their name. It would be funny, silly and stand out. Cheap too.

I know I went a little crazy with that but I am just trying to throw some ideas at you

What are your thoughts on your truck?

Very true.

The vehicle wrapping makes vehicles look amazing. I do look forwards to hearing what Tony has to say on this.
