3 Benefits of Signage as Part of Your Marketing Strategy
Signage can be a very effective part of the marketing strategy, and a great tactic to implement to reach your goals. Besides driving traffic to your business, helping customers find your store, and allowing you to stand out at an event or industry trade show, there are many reasons why you should consider adding signage to your overall marketing strategy.
1. Exposure & Recognition
Maybe you’re sponsoring an upcoming event, or purchasing advertising space in a high-traffic area. Having quality signage with your logo and messaging on it is a great way to increase exposure and recognition of your brand, and helps to keep your business top of mind (not to mention, allowing the chance to relay a specific call-to-action).
Have you ever taken the time to consider your signage inside of your store? By being strategic with your interior signage, you can draw attention to something someone wouldn’t have otherwise considered purchasing, or help your customers to find the product they’re looking for that much faster, aiding in a great customer experience.
Perhaps customers are having troubles finding your business? A strong storefront presence can draw the attention of people passing by, and even some directional signage will ensure that customers can easily find you. Your storefront is also your chance to express your brand, give the public a reason to take notice, or educate them on what you offer.
2. Variety & Creativity
Signage comes in all sizes, shapes, colours, and materials. You can design a sign to have a sleek and modern shape, a combination of bright colours, a three-dimensional texture, and even incorporate reflective materials so it stands out at night. Signage can be completely customizable, and the KEEN team here at KEEN Creative and KEEN Print & Sign can help with design and recommendations on what type of sign will best suit the overall look and feel of your company.
Purchasing a sign is a one-time cost that can have a year-round impact. When you compare other forms of advertising like radio commercials or print ads, although effective, they come at a high price and are only in market for a limited period of time. With signage, you’re getting brand exposure for as long as you choose to keep the sign up; so you’re reaching your audience for a longer period of time, for an overall lower cost.
