Why Buy a Sign Franchise in 2016?

Is it worthwhile to open a sign franchise in an era that sociologists have dubbed “The Internet Age”? With so many virtual marketing assets available to business owners, it’s possible for some to overlook the value of signage in today’s market.

In today’s post, we review the value of signage from the end-users perspective, and explain why sign franchising is such an exciting opportunity.

Successful Companies Have Stellar Signage; Sign Franchises Bring Big Value to the End-User

Though shoddy signage doesn’t preclude a company’s success, it certainly isn’t optimal for driving sales.

Consumers respond well to physical signage. Advertising studies have shown that billboard campaigning is an effective way of converting customers, informing people of new promotions, reminding viewers to turn into specific programming, or displaying website contact information. 68% of survey respondents said that they frequently or sometimes make purchase decisions while driving, which makes A-frame, billboard, and banner signs very appealing to businesses.

From the end-user’s perspective, quality signage remains an essential part of any successful business. Even businesses burning through multi-million dollar internet marketing budgets understand how crucial physical signage is for branding and building trust with the consumer. Visit any enterprise-level business location and take a look at their sign to see for yourself. The British media research firm BrandScience analyzed over 600 case studies to gauge the impact of outdoor signage to determine that the return on investment (ROI) for each dollar spent was $2.80.

When you start a sign business, you can take confidence in the fact that quality signage is always in demand. Businesses are starting everyday, and existing companies always need to update their signage for seasonal events, promotions, or new product releases.

Of course, business owners aren’t your only revenue stream. People need signs for events big-and-small! Informational or directional signs for weddings, parties, and conferences are extremely popular.

With this kind of value for the end-user, it’s easy to see why starting a sign franchise makes sense!
