Using Vehicle Wraps to Advertise

The D. C. Auto Geek blog editorial board would like to discuss the use of vehicle wraps to advertise your business on a car or truck. When a person uses this technology to advertise they are essentially transforming their vehicle into a mobile billboard. The advantages to this type of advertising are legion. First of all the owner of the vehicle can transport his advertising to the location where he anticipates his potential audience to be. Second of all, the owner of the vehicle can take advantage of multiple locations on a single day or over an extended period of time.

VEHICLE WRAPS TAKE YOUR MESSAGE TO MULTIPLE LOCATIONS

The power of advertising is simple yet nuanced at the same time. Advertising is simple from a conceptual standpoint in that it is (typically) a visual display that is designed to influence a specific audience to perform some act such as purchase a product or service. In order for advertising to be effective it must contain an effective message and it must be positioned in a location where its intended audience is likely to see it and then to act upon its message. An effective message is one that is displayed in such a way that it catches its intended audience’s attention and is persuasive to that intended audience.

When a vehicle owner uses a wrap on his or her vehicle to advertise a particular message he or she is in a position to effectively convey his or her message. This does not necessarily be for the purpose of convincing a potential audience to purchase a product or service. This can be used (for example) to disseminate useful information. There are many situations such as a public service announcement where this might be a desirable outcome for any owner of a vehicle employing an advertising wrap.

Feel the Heat Trace Auto Geeks!

I Jerry have climbed to the top of the Washington Monument in order to make my most awesome proclamation which is for all auto geeks to feel the heat trace today! You know very well what I mean so do not even pretend that you do not. In fact, you have been pretending not to know this very fact for some time now and that is precisely why you find yourself in the predicament that you do. But you must cast your fears aside in this matter and do what I tell you to do. It is the only thing that will set you free. Believe me.

FEEL THE FREEDOM THAT IS THE HEAT TRACE

You shall never know what your life could have been without following my instructions. There is something insulating about saying no and sticking one’s proverbial head in the proverbial sand. In that place you can cultivate a comfort zone. But somewhere deep in your heart where the truth is kept under lock and key you will know. And a creeping sense of dissatisfaction will begin to pervade your life in subtle ways. At first you will find yourself becoming irritated with small things. New you will observe yourself acting out passive aggressively.

You will find that the people in your life will begin to draw away from you. You will sense an absence of love but you will blame them for it. Never consciously realizing that all the while the fault lay with you. All because you choose not to follow my advice and do what I have instructed you to do. There is always a time for forgiveness until the time runs out. So I would advise you not to wait too long. There is the temptation to put things off until the next life but there are no guarantees there.

How to Get Around the Doppler Effect

If you live in the Washington D. C. metro area and love autos like I do then I assume you also employ sign shop Salt Lake City to get your message across. The reason I assume this to be the case is that Washington D. C. is a town where everyone is trying to get their message across. Moreover, if you are driving past a another person to whom you are trying to communicate you probably need a sign to communicate effectively because your voice will not be an efficient means of communication. This is the unfortunate situation because of a little thing called the Doppler Effect.

The Doppler Effect is defined as “an increase (or decrease) in the frequency of sound, light, or other waves as the source and observer move toward (or away from) each other. For example, the effect causes the sudden change in pitch noticeable in a passing siren, as well as the redshift seen by astronomers.” Because of the Doppler Effect, the sound of your voice will sound distorted to the person to whom you are attempting to communicate as your car passes by them. This distortion might be enough to make the substance of your communication incomprehensible to the intended object of your communication. For this reason it would probably be more effective to communicate with this person through the use of signs Salt Lake City.

By using a sign to communicate your message to the person you pass in your vehicle you will be more likely to effectively communicate your message. I think the Washington D. C. metro area would definitely be a better place if we were all more effectively communicating our unique messages. I hardily believe this to be true because it can be frustrating to try to communicate and fail in the endeavor. Happy Holidays from all of us at the D.C. Auto Geek Blog!

The Importance of Taking Your Used Car in for Regular Maintenance Checks

Used Car Salt Lake City

The first car I ever owned was a white 92 Ford Escort. I bought it used in 1994 freshly graduated from college. I needed something to drive to and from my job as a truck driver with a whole sale flower delivery company. The car was great for this task.

I made sure to change my oil every 3,000 miles but I did not give it regular maintenance checks. Usually I waited for a part to fail before I took it in to get fixed. I did not have a great deal of disposable wealth at the time so I did not make regular maintenance checks a priority. This, however, is not something I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying a used car because regular maintenance checks can prevent small problems from developing into larger and potentially more expensive or dangerous problems down the road. Luckily I emerged from the experience unscathed.

The car actually lasted a long time. I drove across the country twice in it. It finally died in 2001. I had taken my dog to a state park for a walk in the woods that day. I remember driving 70 miles per hour on the interstate to get to and from the park. That night I arrived home and parked my car on an inclined street in front of my house. I made sure to turn the wheel into the curb so that it would not roll down the hill unexpectedly. The next day I came out to the car to see one front wheel pointed towards the curb but the other pointed straight. The tie rod had broken. Luckily this happened after I arrived safely home with my dog. I shudder to think what could happen if the tie rod broke on the highway at 70 miles per hour.

I was lucky, but it could have easily been different. All this is to emphasize the importance of regular maintenance checks. When you buy a new car from a dealer it is usually easier to set these maintenance appointments up. Used car dealers can be hit or miss with this. A broken tie rod is a relatively inexpensive fix. Flipping a car on the highway at 70 miles per hour will certainly be more expensive.

New DC Made Album – Tim Whalen

Guys, I have to say that I am so stoked! There’s nothing like jamming out to your music in a car that’s been set up for audio correctly, with music that matches the setting and it’s always better when one of your favorite artists releases a new album. What made it cooler was that one of my favorites, Tim Whalen, just recording right here in Washington DC! If I had known he was around the corner, I would have tried to get in to see him!

As one of DC’s favored jazz pianists, composers, and even arrangers, most of us that enjoy Jazz in the DC area know of Tim. He’s played all around town and teamed up with other outstanding musicians to have several sold out venues, ranking from Smithsonian, to local bars around town. He’s outstanding to listen to live, but wait until you put the music in the car! It can completely envelop you and leave you feeling like he’s right there playing with you. Someday, I’m gonna have to post how to get the best audio out of your auto, but until that time, you just need to make sure to pick the right music for the job and Tim’s stuff is great.

I just had to post and tell everything that Tim released a new album, that he recording right here in the DC recording studio from Blue House Productions. I’ve heard they record all styles of music and have some outstanding equipment and recording rooms, although you’ll not want to be hearing my singing voice. Stick to Tim’s new album Oblivion: the Music of Bud Powell and trust me, you’ll thank me later. You can grab it right off his site at http://www.timothywhalen.com/oblivion-store. Way to go Tim and Blue House – it’s a win for DC
