How can you get the maximum number of eyes on your signs?
After advertising, signs are the main medium to bring eyes and views to your business. They attract attention and compel people to look at them. Signs are the first thing which customers look at and judge before entering your store. Ultimately, it is these signs which create the first impression on your clients. How effective your signs are at these functions all depends on you.
Sign maintenance is an important function for any retail and physical business. It can determine if your signs attract people or turn them away. It is all a matter of appearance. Signs represent your business; if they look bad, your business will look bad. Follow the maintenance tips below to keep your signs attractive.
This step should go without saying. Regular cleaning should be a routine part of maintaining the premises of your physical store. Your signs are primarily outside and exposed to natural elements all the time. Wind, dust, sunlight and rain can all make your signs look dirty. You should periodically have them cleaned to ensure that they do not fade or rust.
Renew Protective Coats
You should ideally have your signs built with protective coatings. If your signs don’t have them, you can get them applied. These protective coatings cover your signs in a layer of protection. They protect them from natural elements and bird droppings. They also make cleaning much easier.
These coatings need to be reapplied after some time since they are worn down by rain and sunlight. Coatings ensure your signs catch the right light and always look their best.
Invest in Shading
If your location receives a lot of sunlight and rainfall, then investing in shading might be a good idea. Shades protect not only your signs but also your business premises.
Sunlight and rainfall can add a lot to your overall maintenance costs. You will need regular painting and furnishing to prevent discoloration. Shades will also allow your signs to be seen in the rain.
If you notice any problems with your signs like cracks, rust, scrapes or missing letters, then deal with them immediately. There is nothing more off-putting than a broken sign or a sign that has clearly been neglected.
Not repairing your signs will put a bad impression on your customers and make your business look sloppy. The problem might also spread to the entire sign board and it might need a total replacement. A completely new sign will be more expensive than a simple repair job.
Check the Foundation
If your sign is a sign pole, then you will need to take care of the pole too. Always ensure that the foundation of your sign is solid and sturdy. There should be no cracks or splits at the base of the pole. You should also ensure water does not collect at the base since it can cause rusting. All these problems can cause your sign pole to fall down and need expensive repairs.
