Don't overlook the importance of your business signage.
Business signage is often overlooked and mistaken as a detail rather than a necessity. Signage is the introduction of your business to the public. As demonstrated in the infographic above and according to the SBA, the all important first impression made by your signage can be the difference between a new customer or just a passerby.

"Passive Attention", is an instinctive behavior in humans that keeps us aware of everything happening around us. The movement and bright colors of advertising flags can capture the "passive attention" of passing traffic and increase the value and effectiveness of your business signage. Custom Feather Flags, Teardrop Flags, and Swooper Flags can increase location awareness with passing traffic without breaking the bank.
I have been trying to think of good ways to help the company I work for to get more business, and I didn't think about signs. It is true that most people wouldn't know our business without a sign. I didn't know that signs attracted a lot of new customers as well though. We will have to make sure that we get ourselves a great sign in front of our business! Thanks for all the information!
Thanks for the interesting read about business signage. It's so interesting that signs can actually attract 50% of new customers for start-up businesses. Definitely sounds like it could be beneficial to make sure that you have a good budget for these, especially if it can help out a business that much.
It's amazing that putting up a sign could increase sales by almost 7%! This seems like such an easy and simple way to help get the name of your company out there. A sign really wouldn't be that expensive most of the time as well, so it's an economical way to get people in the know about your business.
