Trucks Advertising is changing after the global pandemic

The Coronavirus crisis has affected the advertising industry, and the effects are expected to go on for a long time. In a nutshell, the lasting behavior change is forcing advertisers to rethink their advertising strategies. This is owing to the restrictions on travel, while many people are forced to stay at home. A recent study predicts up to 31% decrease in advertising investments in the year 2020. This is because various out of home advertising methods have become less effective, owing to travel restrictions and confinements put in place by the governments. One of the affected methods of advertising is truck advertising, and so advertisers will have to rethink the strategy.
Why Trucks Advertising is no Longer as Effective

Has a Low Reach

Placing adverts on trucks no longer guarantees you a huge reach. Consider that people are choosing to work from home, while others have chosen to avoid unnecessary travel. Therefore, it is obvious that the traffic on major highways and on city streets will drop significantly. Thus, using a truck advertising strategy may not work especially for smaller businesses.

Restricted Travel Will Impact Trucks Advertising

Businesses may no longer be able to reach the target audience. This is owing to the restrictions on movement, as only vehicles transporting essential products may be allowed across borders. Such restrictions on movement will impact tracks advertising creating a huge impact.

 Poor Targeting

Another reason why truck advertising no longer works is that it is difficult to target the right audience. Therefore, while the advertisement may generate high engagements, only a handful will complete the call to action. Further, it is not easy targeting the right audience. The lack of ability to ensure precise targeting undermines the as ability to reach a huge audience.

 Lower Return on Investment

Overall, truck advertising is no longer getting a high number of impressions since a majority of people choose staying off the streets, and only travel when it is necessary. Thus, given the high cost of advertising on trucks, the ROI is not impressive.
