In fact, The FedEx Office “What’s Your Sign?” survey found that almost 8 in 10 (76%) of American consumers enter a store they have never visited before based on its signs, and nearly 7 in 10 (68%) have purchased a product or service because a sign caught their eye.

So, making sure your signage leaves people with a positive impact is crucial in encouraging consumers to enter your business and make a purchase. Plus, their attention-grabbing effect will actively add to your sales. A win, win. Choose simple, bold messaging and branding for maximum impact. Take in your surroundings and ask yourself, how can your business stand out from others? Keep it fresh Maintaining a positive impression is so important as research by Signs Express has shown that 98%** of consumers are less likely to conduct business with an organisation if their signage is in disrepair. So, it’s essential to keep your signage in a good clean condition if you want to attract and retain customers. Make sure your signage reflects your current brand image for a consistent and identifiable look and feel to your premises. Be relevant Banners, posters and promotional window graphics can be used as cost-effective temporary displays.

It’s also a great way to revamp your premises without a costly refurbishment.

Illuminate Adding illumination to your signs can dramatically increase their impact. Use inside and outside your premises to attract attention. Read about some of the more popular lighting options for your signage in our blog on the benefits of illuminated signage. Interact with your audience Using signage with moving parts, textured or tactile finishes will increase customer engagement and interaction. Or, how about using digital signage as a captivating method of advertising your services with vivid displays to output dynamic, eye-catching content? Digital signage solutions offer exciting potential and can complement traditional signs and graphics, with the ability to easily offer time-sensitive and seasonal messages and provide immersive experiences to keep your customers engaged. For example, places of interest, such as museums, are opting for immersive touchscreen wayfinding maps, giving visitors information about the different areas of the site they can visit and a more memorable experience.
