Driving to the store the other day I was cut off (badly) by a large, white pick-up truck.
- Annoying – Yes!

Lesson: Be sure that your fleet drivers are hyper aware of their role as Brand Ambassadors behind the wheel. They are more likely to be engaged and aware of their actions once they know that they are key to an important part of your marketing strategy. Your brand is precious. It can take years to build it up but only a few minutes to tear it down.
