What better way to celebrate the spring season than to do some cleaning? With the warm weather arriving, now is the perfect time to freshen not only your closet but also, your business’ look. Whether it is inside or outside there are so many ways to give your business a spring-cleaning.
Revamp To Revive
After the harsh winter your outdoor signage is beginning to look outdated, faded, cracked, peeled or dirty. Instead of giving off the impression of rundown or careless, new signage will imply, fresh, pristine, and inviting. Revamping the outside look of your business will help to revive your business. With new outdoor signage helping to draw customers inside, new secondary signage will help sell your product once your customers are inside. Point of purchase displays, banners, and event signs are great ways to highlight your latest promotions. Another impressive way to generate an influx of business without breaking the bank is with new posters and cutouts. To get the most out of your new advertisements, keep in mind placing the signs in optimal viewing places with great light. Phenomenal signage plus amazing products equal guaranteed success.
Elements of an Exceptional Sign
An exceptional sign is an important part of a prosperous business. It will increase your company’s visibility, answer customers’ questions and provide cohesiveness with a sense of identity. Incorporating the important elements of a sign will improve business and most importantly make you more money. To successfully create an exceptional sign you must keep in mind these four different elements:
Make sure your sign has a reason to exist and is not just taking up space. An exceptional sign only has one purpose: to deliver a message. This message can be anything meaningful but in some way it must inform, alert, or direct your customer.
Keeping the sign simple and direct will allow customers to easily understand an exceptional sign. A sign that reads, “50% Off All Items” immediately tells consumers that all goods in your store are half-priced. Another effective way of sending your message is adding imagery. A sign with a picture of a mouth-watering ice cream cone will signal to everyone that tasty frozen treats are available at your store.
An exceptional sign rapidly sends its message to customers. Humans lack patience; they don’t want to take time to study a sign with lots of words or pictures trying to figure out what is being said. Therefore, use just enough text and images to effectively communicate your message, in the shortest time possible.
People pass by hundreds of signs everyday but only exceptional signs will capture the attention of potential customers and cause them to stop and read your sign. It is important for your sign to stand out and make sure it is seen.
Did You Know?
Whether you’re opening a new business, or expanding a current one, it is important to be aware of the zoning ordinance that governs commercial signage. Compliance with these regulations will help ensure safety and appropriate aesthetics…and will ensure that the money you spend on your signs won’t be wasted in the case of violations that require the sign(s) to be taken down.
