Christmas is now a distant memory and the holiday season is still a long way off so, if you could do with a business boost, it must be time to march up and down the high street with an A-board, right? Just think about all that exercise and fresh air you’ll be getting! ‘Don’t be silly,’ we hear you scoff. ‘Not a hope!’
Well, ok, but you probably already have the makings of a supersize billboard which could be out there working for you 24/7 and covering much more territory far faster than you ever could. In fact, it’s most likely parked by the side of the road or on your driveway right now.
Yes, we’re talking about your van or car. Maybe it’s time to really put it to work for you.
‘Businesses that don’t sign-write their vehicles are definitely missing a trick,’ claims Ross Borne of FutureClient, the Kingsbridge, South Devon-based web design, signwriting and print company. ‘You pay once then it’s out there promoting your business all day, every day for as long as you have the vehicle, so why wouldn’t you do it?’ he asks.
Ross and business partner Joe Allen started FutureClient in 2012. Having recently moved to larger premises, FutureClient now has a drive-in undercover facility for vehicle sign writing, meaning that they can offer you the service all year round without being held up by the weather.
Sampson Agricultural Services of Loddiswell is definitely sold on the vehicle sign writing concept. Having taken over the family run farming and contracting business in 2007, Mark and Emma Sampson have not only personalised their two vans; all four of their tractors have been sign written, too. Their tractors are put to work all over the South Hams so, now, they're really getting the word out about them and what they do.
FutureClient is easy to find, located just below the long stay car park off Lower Union Road in Kingsbridge. Call in any time Monday to Friday for a quote, give them a ring on 01548 853214.
