Why Signs Are So Important For Businesses To Succeed

Signs Are Everywhere

Signs. They’re everywhere; on the sides of buildings, inside businesses and at public events. Signs are what get people talking about your promotion. Why? They often are a great representation of your company’s image and provide the necessary information to intrigue potential customers. Signs are the door to new opportunities and future relationships for your business.

Why Signs?

While many businesses rely on online advertising, it is important to remember that signs still have a way of catching attention, especially when they are displayed in high-traffic areas. Putting a physical sign in front of a person can help them focus on the given information and actually think about whether they need your business or not. Signs are one of the best things that can be used to promote the image of business and the value of your products. Department SignsA recent survey on signs by FedEx found that signage for your business is more important than you think. The study found:
  • 76% of American consumers have entered a store they had never visited before, based on its signs.
  • 68% of American consumers have actually purchased a product or service, because a sign caught their eye.

Design Tips: Making your Signs Pop!

Height is essential to the marketing aspect of your businesses sign. If you are planning on placing the sign on the side of a building next to the freeway, you want the lettering to be readable to those driving by. Your sign should be easy to see in reference to height. The shorter the message, the better. Chances are, if your intended customers are driving, they won’t have much time to read a message that’s over a couple sentences long. If you can take away any unnecessary information from your sign, this will help customers truly receive the message you are sending. You can also choose to use larger text size, which will decrease the amount of people having to squint in order to read your sign. A good rule of thumb is to make sure your message can be read in three seconds or less. Colors also play a key role when it comes to signs. You don’t want a banner that has too many colors because they may take away from the overall message. Also, using colors that are too similar to one another can decrease legibility. You want to go with colors that are high in contrast, such as a dark color text on a light background.
