With the start of a new year its natural to begin thinking of renewal and fresh starts, the same thinking can be applied when thinking about the state of your business particularly the signage you have chosen to advertise that business.
So why would you want to? Simple really, variety is engaging. It doesn’t matter what type of business you have or what type of customers you wish to attract adjusting your signage occasionally will draw their attention and if done right will intrigue them into seeing what else has changed with your business.
But be careful you don’t change your signage simply for the sake of changing it. Periodically or seasonally review the state of your business and how your current signage will support your plans for the coming quarter, year or business plan length. Consider your reasons for making a change and then refer to your current company goals, look at the products you wish to emphasis or any new services you’ve decided to employ and try to incorporate those plans into the new signage you want to get.
