The strengths of vehicle branding

If you have a new business that you are looking to market, it is important to have a detailed advertising and marketing strategy to build people’s awareness of your business, your brand, and your product or service. However, at the same time, it is important to ensure that you are not allocating too big a portion of your resources towards your marketing and branding efforts. If you are looking to maximise your marketing budget, one of the best ways to do so is through vehicle graphics.

Advantages of rolling out your brand with vehicle graphics

Visibility

One of the biggest advantages of using vehicle branding to spread word about your business and brand is that it has incredibly high visibility. According to statistics, the number of vehicles in Dubai has increased dramatically from 740,000 in 2006 to 1.4 million at the end of 2014. What this means is that more and more people are using vehicles to travel around the city, translating to an average increase of 8.2 per cent.

Using vehicle branding will allow you to bring your brand in front of the eyes of people on the road, giving it the exposure you need to build customer awareness. Additionally, since having your brand and branding design on your company vehicle through vehicle graphics only requires a one-time investment, you will be maximising your budget while reaping repeated returns.

Flexibility

Another benefit to vehicle branding is that it is highly flexible. Because vehicle branding is essentially a task of applying specialised film on to the surface of a vehicle, it can be done on any type of vehicle, without much hassle. If you have a fleet of delivery vans, you can have it applied on every van for maximum return on investment. If you have container trucks, you can easily apply vehicle branding on them to allow for exposure every time they roll out on the road. And if you have staff vans for transporting personnel from one place to another, vehicle branding helps in increasing awareness of your business as well. The fact that it can be applied on virtually any type of vehicle means you have freedom on its vehicular application.

Gain trust

According to studies, 75 per cent of people have a positive opinion on businesses whose vehicles that branded with high quality graphics. It also lends the impression that the business is successful and established in its own industry.

3 gadgets that will clean your home for you

If you were to ask 10 people on the street the one thing they enjoy doing during their free time, 9 out of 10 would probably say anything other than cleaning up house. For most people, it’s a chore you’d rather have someone else do, if you could just afford it. Unfortunately, house cleaning is something we all have to get done on a regular basis, unless you enjoy living in a totally messy and unhygienic home, in which case, good luck!

Thankfully, there are gadgets now that can help make cleaning much easier for us (oh, what a time to be alive!). Here are some home cleaning gadgets that you might want to consider buying the next time there’s a big discount at the mall.

  1. Samsung Navibot Vacuum Cleaner

The Navibot Vacuum Cleaner is a small, spaceship-like home cleaning vacuum cleaner that intelligently detects and determines the most efficient way to clean up your home, without you even having to handle it. Using what Samsung calls the Visionary Mapping System, the Navibot automatically detects dirt and debris on the floor. Then, using a built-in camera, the device proceeds to clean up your floor autonomously. The processing system in the vacuum cleaner collects data about the layout of your home, and using this information, learns the best possible path for cleaning it.

  1. iRobot Scooba Floor Washer

Tired of scrubbing your floors clean of dust? The iRobot Scooba Floor Washer has got your back! This automated home cleaner works in the same way as the Navibot Vacuum Cleaner, but it is capable of doing so much more. While the Navibot will only collect the dirt off your floors, the Scooba Floor Washer will actually WASH and SCRUB your floor clean. Another neat thing about the Scooba is that it can also be used to clean other types of surfaces. iRobot claims that it can claim 97 per cent of common household bacteria, which is pretty reassuring as well.

  1. Purpose for Pets

If you have a pet at home, you’re familiar with the problem of having to look around for that pesky pet stain that’s the source of the hostile scent hovering below your nostrils. With Purpose for Pets, you no longer have to deal with that. This device is equipped with backlight LEDs that can illuminate and detect pet stains, and remove them for you using a built-in 3-inch scrub brush. All you have to do is set it off, and it will do the clean-up work for you.

If you feel you cannot yet trust the cleaning of your home to automated devices, you can always opt to hire maids in Dubai Marina, or wherever you are in the city. There are plenty of companies that offer maid services in JBR and elsewhere in Dubai. If you need maid services in JLT, there Lily Maids is here to help! Contact us today to find out more!

5 Smart Birthday Gift Ideas for College Students

Do you remember when you were in college and you wished your parents gave you more money for books, food, and what-not? Do you remember how hard it was to work part-time at the bar nearby and see your classmates enjoying the beers that you served? While such an experience has taught you to be more frugal and wise in money and in life, it’ll feel great for college students these days to have a break from financial struggles, right?

If you have a child, niece, or nephew who is celebrating his or her birthday soon, perhaps it’s time to think of a gift for them now. They’re probably oversaturated with pizza and beer, so why not give them something they can actually use this time? Here are five smart birthday gift ideas that they may like to get.

Computer

You only had typewriters for your thesis when you were in college in the 80s, but now your kids need a laptop or desktop computer for his or her homework. If you know a college student who has yet to have his or her own computer, why not give one as a birthday surprise? It’ll be a great help to their studies. It’ll allow them to do their homework at the dorm instead of at the library, where other students may be using the free computers, too.

Smartphone

The recent advances in mobile phone technology can make your ancestors jealous, and while these smartphones can be expensive to buy, giving one as a birthday gift to your college student can be a pleasant surprise. If your son or daughter is on the college dean’s list last semester, the latest smartphone can also double as a birthday gift and reward.

Books

If you’ve been to college yourself, you probably understand how expensive school books can be. During a casual conversation, ask a college student you know of the books he or she needs this semester and give one or two of those as a birthday gift. Giving them your favorite fiction novel is also a great idea. It’s like teaching them your own values, but through a paperback. They’ll appreciate this gesture especially if they love reading, too.

New Clothes

Most college students are clueless when it comes to laundry and fixing a wardrobe, so giving them new clothes for their birthday is also a good idea. Take them shopping and buy them shirts, a jacket, and even casual shoes for daily wear. If you want to give them something extra special, you can also buy them a formal dress or a suit that they can use for thesis presentation or a future job interview.

Subscription to a Magazine or Journal

While the internet answers most college students’ questions these days, it’s also an awesome idea to expose the younger generation to traditional research. You can give them a subscription to a scholastic magazine or journal as a gift. They can use these as references to their research or thesis, and it gives them an edge against their fellow students who only rely on search engines for homework.

Any college student will appreciate receiving these gifts from you.
