Carvertise partners with New Castle County on mask campaign
WILMINGTON – Carvertise, a rideshare-based transit advertising company, announced the launch of its #TeamMASK advertising campaign with the New Castle County government in an effort to promote the continued importance of mask-wearing to stop the spread of COVID-19.
As a part of this initiative, 11 high-mileage county vehicles, including the county executive’s own car, were selected to don gigantic custom-made “Car Masks” that fit over the grill of the vehicles. The vehicles also prominently feature a #TeamMASK slogan on both driver and passenger sides, to proudly state the county’s position on wearing face masks to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The county vehicles selected are a medley of paramedic and public works sedans and trucks that will be seen at COVID-19 testing sites, public parks, and construction sites. Each vehicle travels a minimum of 1,100 miles a month which will create an estimated 82,500 monthly impressions, according to Carvertise’s proprietary impression calculating algorithm. For the duration of this three-month advertising campaign, 2.7 million impressions will be created generating significant reach and frequency throughout the entire county.
Carvertise CEO Mac Macleod said, “New Castle County has become the first government entity in the country to transform their fleet of vehicles into moving billboards promoting public safety messaging specific to COVID-19. Not only does the creativity of the face masks make it memorable, but it is also highly cost-efficient. These vehicles are driving around the county everyday as it is; now, however, they’re holding the dual purpose of marketing to county residents. That’s a 2-for-1 benefit.”
“The #TeamMASK campaign is a great way for us to drive home an important public safety message to our county residents,” New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer said. “What better way to show a sense of community spirit and pride around public mask compliance than to have these larger-than-life face masks adorned to our highest mileage vehicles? I’m highly confident this will get people thinking and talking about mask-wearing.”
