Why Businesses Need Signage
People today spend so much time with their eyes glued to their screens that businesses can be forgiven for thinking they have to do everything digitally. Yet as important as digital marketing has become in the modern world of smartphones and the Internet, there’s still something to be said for the importance of physical signage.
Here are some of the most compelling reasons why your business needs good signage:
- Announcing your presence. Customers won’t patronize your business if they don’t know it’s there. Essentially, signage tells people where you are and what you can do for them. In many cases, it’s the first chance you have to make an impression on potential customers. Appealing, attractive signage can grab the attention of passers-by and get them thinking about what your business can do for them, even if they weren’t thinking about it before.
- Strengthening your brand. Your business works hard to create a brand that appeals to your customers, and good signage can help contribute to that in a big way. Carefully designed business signage can create a powerful impression in the minds of potential customers at a glance, providing a focal point that can tie all the elements of your brand together.
- Building trust. Your business must build trust among your customers, and signage can play an important role in doing that. When your business’ signage is well-maintained, bright and in line with your brand strategy, it helps signal to customers that your business is one that keeps its promises and pays close attention to detail. Even if your signage doesn’t state that outright, the implication is that a business with signage in good condition is much more trustworthy than a business that doesn’t put as much effort into its signage.
- Bringing in customers. The most basic form of marketing is simply letting your customers know you exist — signage can do that and more. Signage is a critical part of any marketing strategy because it works 24/7 to attract customers to your business. Even without the flash and interactivity of a digital marketing campaign, your business’ signage does a lot to attract new customers.
