Businesses, brands, organisations and creative agencies alike are using promotional buses to make a big impact and get their message across to their audience.
LBV Hub Member Stuart Greenley from Roadshow Promotions explores some FAQs on why a promotional bus is a unique and engaging way to showcase brands, products, events and people.
Q: Why include a promotional bus as part of your marketing campaigns?
A: They’re perfect for a variety of purposes… from raising awareness to launching a new product, engaging staff, or entertaining visitors at a trade exhibition.
One of the best things about a marketing bus tour is the versatility it provides. You can hire a bus for just a couple of days or for as long as six months (or more). The bus can tour the country or it can stay in one location.
This makes it an ideal solution for a wide range of promotional needs. Whether you’re looking to build buzz around a new product or simply engage with your audience in a unique way, a promotional bus tour is the perfect solution.
Q: So, how exactly does a promotional bus make an impact?
A: It’s a highly visible and attention-grabbing way to promote a brand or product. A brightly-coloured double decker or single decker bus with eye-catching graphics is sure to turn heads and get people talking. It’s a great way to make a big impression and build brand awareness.
We’ve created a hotel bedroom on a bus, trained heart surgeons on a bus, launched make-up from a bus, had a pharmacist and health professionals on a bus and toured Europe training surgeons on a bus.
We like to think outside the bus; if you can think it, we can do it (probably!).
Q: In what ways can we use a promotional bus?
A: A promotional bus tour offers a unique way to engage with your audience. You can use the bus as a mobile showroom, allowing people to see and experience your products in person. You can also use it as a platform to host events, such as workshops, product launches, or live music performances. This allows you to create a memorable experience for your audience and build a strong connection with them.
