You know the old saying, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” Building signs are your first impression to the world. They may be fixed objects and once installed, you may not give them a second thought, but building signs are what makes your business stand out from the crowd. Signdealz tell you how.
Why Building Signs Matter
Building signs are some of your hardest working employees. Most business owners don’t think of signs in this way, but it’s true. On the job 24/7, they act like your personal sales representative and speak volumes about your business. From increasing business credibility, branding your business, increasing sales, and making your business easy to locate, building signs are one of your best investments.
Increases Business Credibility
Professionally designed, built, and displayed building signs assure customers they are doing business with trustworthy people. Scams and identity theft are in the minds of today’s consumers – not just online, but in the world of brick and mortar businesses as well.
A professional appearance builds confidence in potential customers and puts them at ease. When your business has a credible and trustworthy appearance conveyed through signage, customers are more willing to trust you with their money and make more purchases.
Brands Your Business
By placing your company logo on your sign, potential customers are constantly exposed to it and remember it. Not only does your company logo ensure customers they are doing business with a trustworthy company, it keeps your business in the minds of future customers. Unique logos or a memorable slogan on your sign increases the chances that customers will remember your business when they need your service.
The Outdoor Advertising Association of America (1) proves with research that signage increases business by 15%. In another, more informal study performed by Burger King, they learned that outdoor business signs were the reason 35% of their customers ate in their restaurant. Major chains know the importance of outdoor business signs and companies like McDonald's spend an average of $40,000 per location on signs, often putting up the sign before construction even starts.
Makes Your Business Easy to Locate
When you're in business, you want to capture every sale. This is possible only if you make your business easy to find. If customers don’t know you exist, they can't do business with you. If customers want to shop in your store, but can't find it, they will do business elsewhere. Many sales are lost this way and costs you, the business owner, money.
