Do your signs need an update? Is your fascia looking a little tatty or does your signage no longer reflect where you are as a business? There can be several different reasons for needing to update your current signs – so here are 5 ways to help you keep your signs looking fresh, to stay ahead of the competition.
Even the biggest corporations undergo regular rebranding, no matter how subtle. How you handle a rebrand can turn it into a useful marketing opportunity and allow you to create a cohesive look for your commercial premises that might even extend to your vehicle fleet.
Whether you keep it as subtle as an overhaul of your colours and fonts or go for a full-scale change of logo, a well-executed rebranding exercise can generate sales, increasing revenue to pay for the change of look.
The chances are that, since your signs were installed, the materials used have advanced significantly. Investing in premium quality signs is your ultimate marketing tool. If your signs can withstand extreme weather conditions and come up shining, then they’re worth the investment.
Coupled with a planned maintenance programme to keep your exterior signs in good condition, you’ll boost brand awareness and business reputation. When your signs look good, your premises are more attractive to your customers.
Expand your signage
Instead of replacing your existing signs, rejuvenate the look and feel of your premises by adding extra signs that benefit your customer. Additional wayfinding signs can direct customers to promos and retail opportunities that enhance the customer experience while boosting your revenues.
You could also consider adding point of sale signs and displays that direct customers to a time limited promotion or a new product you’re keen to bring to their attention. The sales you generate with additional signs can offset the costs of your investment.
An illuminated sign means that you can truly maximise your marketing appeal, 24/7. Energy efficient LEDs have made sign illumination a feasible choice for any business and there’s no doubt that well-constructed halo letters with a strong illumination effect will set you apart from the competition and give your signs an instant update.
A cost-effective trough light is a quick and easy way to add a different dynamic to an existing sign. From halo lighting to the use of large scale monument signs packed with LEDs, ask your sign designer for their expert advice and add the power of illumination for a quick facelift.
If you want to create a whole new signage suite, then you’ll want to rethink everything from the ground up. Working with a professional designer is the savvy way to focus your ideas and maximise your return on investment. After all, a set of new signs may not come cheap, but as your biggest marketing asset, they offer surprisingly good value for money.
