When it comes to starting a business, choosing the right location is essential, but it's also important to have clear, quality commercial signage on the property. Without it, customers and vendors can struggle to find your business and it can be harder for your company to achieve long-term success.
In today's Aegis blog post, we discuss four ways that having good, top-quality signage on your commercial property can help your new or existing business, and how Aegis can help protect these important investments.
1. Improves Visibility and Safety
One of the primary benefits to having large, clear signage on a business property is that it improves your company's overall visibility. A professional LED or monument sign can make it easier for customers, vendors, delivery drivers, and job applicants to find your business as they approach the property, and can help attract more attention to your company.
Having large signs or channel letters on a building can also improve safety since people can clearly see the business name or logo without having to slow down or circle past the business property to find it. When people can't see a business name or sign at night or during bad weather, it can lead to vehicle accidents, pedestrian injuries, or delivery delays.
2. Promotes Your Brand
Another important benefit to having good digital or static signs on your business property is that it can promote your brand in a bold and professional way. For example, a large LED digital sign can display sales or promotions, new products, upcoming events, or other important news.
Also, large signage that is visible from streets or busy freeways can serve as a billboard, attracting people who otherwise might not know the business is there and open. This is especially true for businesses that are new and haven't yet had the chance to build up their name and logo recognition.
3. Enhances Outside Appearance
Good business signage can make a great first impression on customers and visitors to a commercial property. Signage can also be designed to fit in with the aesthetic and layout of neighboring businesses to give a more cohesive look.
Corrugated plastic signs can topple over and blow away, and nylon banners can tear and look unappealing, but professionally installed digital signs, channel letters, or monument signs can enhance the appearance of a business and their outside property.
4. Build Community Support
Finally, large business signage such as digital signs or monument signs can build community support while also promoting the business. Companies can use their signs to post community updates, share celebratory news, or highlight an important cause or event.
For example, companies can use their digital signs to celebrate a local sports team win, or to promote an upcoming charity event. Encouraging up the local community can also strengthen the reputation of a business in their area, which can help build a loyal customer base.
