Small Business Saturday
News
Saturday 1st December marks a significant day for small business owners, with the non-profit organisation, Small Business Saturday, highlighting small business success and encouraging consumers to ‘shop local’.
While the campaign runs all year, the organisation encourages customers to go out and support their local independent businesses on December 1st, with many businesses taking part by hosting events and offering discounts. As a supporter of the campaign, Signs Express believes that small businesses should receive the same opportunities for growth as large corporations, and that great signage is one of the most valuable tools you can use. Why is good signage important for small businesses? Brand awareness A potential customer’s first impression of your business will likely be your exterior business signs. Nearly 60% of consumers say the absence of signs and/or poor signage, such as low quality or misspelt words, deters them from entering a store or business. Therefore, making sure your signage is of the highest quality and represents your brand well is essential for attracting new customers.

Interior signage that’s consistent with your brand such as wayfinding or point of sale signs will direct customers to the right area, making for a better customer and visitor experience. Interior signs can also inform customers of upcoming promotions or events, potentially gaining custom for you in the future. Cost-effective Premises signage for your business can be a one-off investment with minimal maintenance required when the most suitable materials are used. Once your signage is installed, it acts as a 24/7, all year-round advertising tool for your brand. A must for all premises based businesses is fascia signage and there are many options to choose from to keep your business front of mind to prospective customers. Competitive edge Researching the signage your competition uses can help you decide what you can do differently and make your business stand out from the crowd.
