Back in the early 2000s, online marketers were quick to proclaim that the end times for physical signage were upon us.
But while online marketing avenues and pop-up ads have proliferated, the demand for physical business signs haven’t dropped.
In fact, business-to-business sales have shot up as emerging technologies make it easier for self-starters to launch their dream companies.
Late last year, research from the International Sign Association (ISA) assessed buyer trends and the impacts of various economic factors on four industry segments: wide-format printing, electric signs, digital signage, and architectural signs. Their results showed that markets for signs, graphics, and visual communications remained well above-trend in 2017. In 2016, global revenue for digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising surpassed $1.6-billion U.S. Moreover, they predicted growth well above historic patterns in 2018.
The truth is that the demand for signage will persist for as long as commerce exists, which is just one reasons why Signworld partners have the edge over other franchise owners.
But what gives Signworld business partners the edge?
A thriving industry does not guarantee success. Your business needs specific competitive advantages to leverage local opportunities. And that’s where we come in.
Signworld offers unique benefits for business owners, including:
- Unparalleled autonomy. Most people don’t believe their ears when they tell them that they enjoy all the benefits of membership in the Signworld business alliance with almost none of the restrictions normally imposed on franchise owners. Our whole motto is no rules, no royalties, which means you have the authority and funds to build whatever kind of sign business that works for you.
- Steadfast support. Joining the Signworld business alliance means getting responsive, ongoing support for all aspects of your business. We are standing by to assist you with mechanical, technical, and sales hiccups at any time. We guarantee next-day on-site service for any equipment issues that can’t be fixed over the phone, and can connect directly to your computer to fix problems and download solutions. Pose questions to the 300+ business owners in our alliance at any time using our Owners’ forum, or bring them with you to our annual 3-day conventions, packed full with helpful seminars and one-on-one time.
- Premium training and learning resources. Even if you only planned to be part of our business alliance for a short period, the access to information alone is well worth the price of admission. Think of how your sign business career could benefit from 7+ modules of pre-opening training; ongoing sales and marketing coaching; a massive digital archive of operational guides and reference material; and an annual convention with more seminar resources than any single person could attend.

- Money-making territory protections rules. We give every member of the Signworld business alliance a protected territory with up to 3,000 businesses to sell to.
