Marketing and Advertisement Models We offer following marketing and advertising models to Our clients, Our partners and organisations to expand the reach of their services and publicizing their business:
We also offer banners / leaflets /flex / stickers / pamphlets that can be kept or affixed inside the Auto. People seldom notice them outside but they will get more focused and intent knowledge about your business which is even more enhancing. This is also very useful and effective for conducting surveys, camp notices, gathering public data, awareness etc. Other tools of advertising can also be implemented like handles, seat-covers, bills and what not!
The reach of this model is approximately 50000 people every day ranging from 15 minutes to 1 hours of visibility to each customer.
This is the most innovative method of advertising, which We offer. The "Speaking Auto" uses the oldest but most effective way of advertisement and marketing, which is "WORD OF MOUTH" Publicity!
Most of our Auto Drivers are literate and educated. More than 90% are 12th pass.
In this method, the client conducts a one-to-one or one-to-many training sessions for the Auto Drivers or their Spikeway Auto representatives, and train them to tell and make people aware about the client's product and services while commuting.
Say, Builder ABC wants to advertise and market its new township service called RICH LIVES. They get associated with Spikeway Auto and their leaflets/posters/brochures are kept inside our 1000+ Auto Rickshaws. Their marketing representatives train these Auto Drivers in one-to-one or one-to-many form. The training will be focused on making aware the passenger about Rich Lives and telling them the benefits of this township. The main objective of Auto Drivers it to pass the address and numbers of ABC Builders to the passengers and give them the brochures/leaflets with brief explanation. This whole process takes hardly 5 minutes but the passenger gets the information from a very unlikely but trustworthy person. This surely makes them think about giving it a try.
This is a very innovative, effective and affordable method and We highly recommend it!
We at Spikeway Auto believe in the power of Creativity and Innovation and we welcome all the suggestions and new ways of advertisements. If You feel that We can help You in some other ways or You have a new idea of advertising with Us, then We'll be really happy to adopt and implement it with You! So believe in Us and rise!
