  • It’s affordable,

We offer mobile billboard space with positive, excellent exposure to thousands, sometimes tens of thousands, of eyes. Along with this comes occasional word of mouth references about your business (when appropriate), and the driver can carry a flyer or business card with your information to give out to passengers and other people. The pedicabs are generally out for 6 to 8 hours or longer each day, and cover a lot of miles.

Campus Special

There is a way to reach out to the public while offering a useful and unique service: be a sole sponsor for a day. Currently, Corvallis Pedicab mainly offers this opportunity at the Oregon State University campus on weekdays; this service is also available for other events.

Campus

It’s called the “Campus Special” and offers 4 types of marketing in one:

  • Mobile billboards on each available side of the pedicab
  • Coupons or handouts for passengers and others
  • Word of mouth during the ride
  • Rides courtesy of your business or organization

Each side of the pedicab is covered with your logo or ad on laminated signs. You send us the files, we take care of the printing. We can also help with design for a nominal fee.

The pedicab is out for 6-8 hours on a school day (usually some time between 9am and 6pm), giving students, faculty, and others complimentary rides on behalf of your business or organization. The driver is able to target your specific demographic when offering rides, though no one is turned down or ignored.

All riders get a coupon, sample, or small advertisement; we can talk up any specials or promotions you have going on. Typical handouts are compelling coupons without a catch, free handouts, or perhaps a small handbill listing information about your business. Our goal is to bring people in the door with something exciting and compelling if it’s a coupon. Usually, if coupons have a catch, like “$5 off when you spend $50 or more” or “Save 50% this Thursday only,” those coupons have a very low return rate. Consider that people aren’t necessarily expecting a coupon on a pedicab ride, so it has to feel valuable in order for them to keep and use it.

By participating in this, you are showing the community and public that you support a fun, useful, eco-friendly service. Even those who don’t ride see your mobile billboard, and most folk are smiling or interested when they see the pedicab; that is when you want them to make the association with your business – when they are intrigued or smiling. Corvallis Pedicab is often a hit wherever it goes, and is a much appreciated and utilized part of the community, receiving continual positive feedback on the OSU campus and throughout Corvallis. You can read testimonials of both passengers and advertising clients here.

Campus

The cost for the Campus Special is only $150 per day (6-8 hours).
Again, this is 4 kinds of marketing:

  • Mobile billboards on each available side of the pedicab
  • Coupons or handouts for passengers and others
  • Word of mouth during the ride
  • Rides courtesy of your business or organization

This particular marketing special is a continually proven success, delivering an average coupon return rate of 20-40%. It offers a unique, affordable alternative to traditional advertising avenues that many people don’t notice any longer. References are available from each business that has signed on thus far. You can sign up for as little or as many days as you prefer. Please call or email with any further questions.
