Some of the most common mistakes business owners make when investing in vehicle, truck, trailer & boat graphics.

1.  Don’t think of the cost as strictly a cost.  Look at itas an investment & as providing an incoming revenue stream.  3% of people who see your car in a given day will need your service or be purchasing your service that day, another 3% will be purchasing within six months.  A 6% ROI for an advertising campaign is a high return on a small investment.

2.  Don’t base your ideal design on catchy vehicle graphics designs you find online.   Effective vehicle wrap and graphics advertising is not about cute, clever or catchy graphics it’s about connecting & communicating with your target customer.

3.  Evaluate the design based on how effectively it communicates your message and its appeal to your target customer, not to yourself.

4.  If you plan on having help reviewing the design, make sure that they are involved from the very beginning and are part of the discussion of how to best to communicate with your target customer. This will allow the other person to provide feedback based on your objectives.
