Wrapify + Rideshare Drivers: The largest player in the rideshare advertising ecosystem

by Jenny Gensch

As 2020 is now well underway, we notice that increasingly more everyday people are signing up to work in the gig economy. Everything from food delivery with Postmates, alcohol delivery from Saucy, groceries from Amazon Fresh, and of course, rideshare driving from Lyft and Uber. 

At the same time in our ad-spend landscape, OOH (out-of-home) advertising is finding itself in a large resurgence – just ask Nielsen about how wrapped vehicles are the most noticeable moving OOH ads and look at the allocation of marketing spend of brands and their agencies in the recent months. 

Some drivers are finding ways to make this or a combination of these options their full-time jobs, and others whenever they decide to make time for it. Even with those part-time “gigsters”, they may even still have a regular workday commute as well. This means these people are amongst the most frequent drivers of anybody on the road.

Starting with professional vehicle wraps back in 2015, Wrapify has also launched its brand new product, The Static+ Rideshare Topper.  Wrapify’s rideshare offering has the largest geographic footprint, able to serve brands nationwide. 

Wrapify, providing OOH advertising for some of the world’s biggest brands like Pepsi, The MLB, AT&T, and General Mills, has been growing its robust network of certified drivers throughout the entire US since 2015. This network contains about 280,000 and counting heading into 2020. With up to 40% of them being rideshare drivers, brands are jumping at the opportunity to advertise on these cars and all cars through Wrapify to maximize their reach and spend for OOH advertising. 

What’s more, is that with Wrapify you get a precise measurement of impressions, digital attribution and multi-channel retargeting ads after devices nearby are exposed. Dead are the days of “estimated impressions” based on trends or historical data. This attribution allows brands to see where the actions or results of user activity another step past simply measuring an impression. 

Wrapify just took an OOH ad and made it digital, the ad that keeps on advertising and retargeting.

The “ridetop” or “rideshare topper” industry is exploding more than ever after continuous growth, with a reputation of billions of dollars in spending on taxi tops for instance. The spending on advertisements on these is even more in densely populated areas like New York City and San Francisco. Now, any brand can select any US market, and deploy their ads on top of cars easily through Wrapify.
