Lots of exposure and awareness.The auto wraps tend to be colorful and eye-catching and attract lots of attention. Plus, it's a form of advertising with a captive audience,meaning people who are stuck in traffic and can't avoid seeing the wrapped car alongside them. This program will last for 3 months and the minimum period you can participate is 1 month. You will be compensated with a $400 (four hundred dollars per Week),which is essentially a "rental" payment for letting our company use the space.HEINEKEN shall provide Experts that would handle the advert placing on your car.You will receive an up front payment of $400 (four hundred dollars) inform of check for accepting to carry this advert on your car and other weekly payments will also come in the form of checks and delivered at your address weekly.

There were paid-to-drive options some years back - but Heineken never was a participant in these. They only use their own trucks - or employee vehicles - with their brand name. This policy is the same everywhere - from their headoffice in The Netherlands to any foreign office up to and including the USA.
