Maximise Reach and Frequency with Glasgow Taxi Advertising 

Firstly, brands need to know that they will maximise ad reach and frequency through taxi advertising in Glasgow.

It’s hard to create hype about your products or services if outdoor audiences aren’t familiar with your products or services, so familiarise audiences with them through taxi advertising. A combination of higher ad reach and frequency from taxi campaigns will lead to improved customer awareness as Glasgow outdoor audiences become increasingly accustomed to your brand, and what your product or service offers. 

The good thing about taxi ads is that they are memorable and visually appealing, getting delivered to urban audiences in busy cities like Glasgow. That way, it’s easier to ensure your brand remains ‘top of mind’ with consumers.

According to marketing cognitive research, emotional responses to ads peak at 9-12 exposures, and the effects start to decline after that. 

Make Your Branding Visible from 360° Degrees with Full Taxi Wraps

Get maximum value for money by ensuring your taxi wraps are seen by as many people as possible outdoors in Glasgow, going about their day-to-day business in the city. 

A way to ensure you maximise the number of people exposed to your wraps is by going for full taxi wraps that are visible from 360° angles. 

At Drovo, we are full taxi wrap specialists. With our full wrap service, we are also able to provide rooftop taxi wraps, helping your brand to be visible from all angles not only to on-street audiences, but also to people looking out of high-rise offices, apartments, and so on. 

To give you more peace of mind, we even send you monthly proof of postings providing clear images where you are able to see the condition of your wrap on the vehicle for yourself.
