Everyday, as car owners, we traverse along the busy streets of Metro Manila with our choice of transportation. During our commute we see trains, taxis, buses, jeepneys, and even motorcycle delivery bikes take advantage of the real estate on their vehicles to promote products or services in the form of advertising. While these PUV’s (public utility vehicles) definitely spend a great deal amount of time on the road and provide visibility for the ads that they have, it doesn’t mean that our private vehicles shouldn’t be able to take advantage of the hours we spend everyday on the road. A new service called MyFreeGas is poised to fix that problem by offering us with exactly that – free Caltex gasoline in exchange for a bit of advertising space on your car. If it sounds like something you’re interested in, or you’re a company that wants to provide more visibility to their products or services as an advertiser, then you should definitely read on – we’ll walk you through it.
MyFreeGas is an advertising firm where both car owners and interested advertisers can sign up. Car owners will need to put in the details of their automobile and their most frequent routes, as well as monthly mileage and gas consumption. These are used to determine how much visibility the ads on your car will have. Advertisers who have signed up can then have their logos put on your car in the form of a 20×3.5” sticker on your rear windshield or bumper. The deal here is that your car must cover 300KM for the month that it had the sticker on. For your trouble, you get PHP 1,000 worth of Caltex gasoline provided by the advertiser. Supposedly, if the advertiser finds your ad space promising, they would want to continue the arrangement over more months – giving you more free gasoline in the process.
So if you’re interested in checking this out, you can go to their website and sign up. Alternatively, you can check out their Facebook page as well.
