Exterior Signs: Get Your Message Out To The World

Your marketing influences people's purchasing decisions. With each event, promotion or sale comes an advertising tool, and whether you are a small business owner or a digital entrepreneur, customizing an exterior sign will help you talk directly with your audience. These versatile yet effective tools will help you reach your target audience in an unobtrusive way.

Outdoor signs are perfect for increasing your brand visibility - they help you build solid relationships with new and existing customers. From large scale retailers to one person businesses, exterior advertising materials are tried and true methods that not only communicate your message but build loyalty.

The Average American Spends 7 to 10 Seconds Viewing a Sign

The average an American spends in a car is 194 minutes each weekday. This means, that outdoor signage will help you get hundreds if not thousands of impressions every week.

56% of Americans talk about a funny billboard they saw. When it comes to marketing, provide your audience with a memorable impression. If your business type allows you to be funny, go for it, otherwise, evoke feelings consistent with your brand.

The number of seconds a traveler views a billboard is just 7 to 10 seconds. In other words, you need to communicate your message quickly and use colors and design effectively to attract the eye of your recipients.

The Role of Marketing Signs In Today's Society and Their Applications

Imagine you've been looking at ads on your laptop, smartphone, TV, and tablet. It's only 8:00 am and you take your car to go to work. Then you see an outdoor sign that tells you about the newest supermarket in town. Well, the print ad will definitely be the most memorable advertisement you have seen all morning, and if it is well designed it will leave a lasting impression.

With people becoming more and more skeptical of digital ads, print offers an alternative to connect with your target audience on their terms. That's one of the main reasons why these coveted tools are used by an increasing number of businesses across industries. Also, they're eye-catching, easy to see from a distance and incredibly inexpensive.

What about their applications? Take a look at some of their most common uses:

  • Promoting any kind of sale and happy hour
  • Advertising logos and company names
  • Boosting brand awareness
  • Building trust
  • Improving foot traffic
  • Announcing events
  • Informing your audience about your location
  • Showcasing a political belief
  • Stopping traffic with attractive marketing
  • Supporting a sports team
