Cable TV Advertising; Mobile Detailing Customers

If you own a mobile detailing business or mobile car wash company you should have the local cable company as one of your clients. You may even find your self with some free publicity. Cable companies are great companies to secure fleet wash contracts with. They also have other things that can be advantageous to you such as:

Local News

Community Bulletin Boards

Very Targeted Audiences

Employees To Wash Cars For

Satellite Antennas To Wash

Large Customer Base

Fleets of Trucks

Local cable stations are always looking for news. They try to get a jump on the morning newspapers. You may as well be part of local news since you are definitely part of the community. If you know of an event you will be participating in, alert the cable company and allow them to interview you when they arrive. You can introduce them to the director or main organizer. They will also want to interview you because you have been helpful and because they have limited time and limited battery power in their portable equipment. They must get back to the editing room.

Each story will be between two to eight minute segments on the evening news. If the average story is five minutes and the local evening news is from eight to nine and from ten to eleven, then each one-hour show needs thirty minutes of airtime; that is six stories (five minutes each). The rest is commercials. Most local news reporters don't make much money. Instead they use their job as a steppingstone to make it as the next Dan Rather or Connie Chung. Lots of people want their job and they continually have to prove themselves. So be patient. Sometimes they are late and they frequently make mistakes. These reporters need to get the story straight the first time. It saves on editing time and they are always behind deadline and low on batteries.

Whenever you are interviewed, always try to be wearing a company shirt or flex for the camera (just kidding). However, it is very important to have the mobile detailing rig in the background. Think about how you can combine customer synergies with free publicity and advertising in your business.
