Different Types Of Signs Every Retailer Should Have


If you want your business to get noticed, you need to make use of signage. Quality signs are an easy and effective way to attract foot traffic to your business. You can also use signs to communicate with your customers. However, if you do it incorrectly, signs can cause confusion and overstimulation. Here are some types of signs you should never ignore when you have a retail business.

Outdoor signs

Outdoor signs are arguably the most important signs in physical retail because they get customers in the door. It is the largest hurdle to building a relationship with your potential customers. Exterior signs give the first impression to customers about your business. Signs do more than announcing who you are and they need to draw customers in and make your customers want to get something from you. There are different types of signage you can install outside your business to encourage passers-by to give it a chance and visit your store.

Information signs

Informational signs are also known as directional, departmental, wayfinding or organisational signs. These signs help customers to navigate your business premises more easily. Customers are likely to rely on the convenience of navigating around your business in future.

Persuasive signs

You can use persuasive signs in your shop to influence consumer behaviour by use of attractive imagery and convincing language. Persuasive signs can be used to advertise a particular promotion or product. The signs can improve interactivity with products that could have gone unnoticed.

Compliant signs

Compliant signage can be used to make customers feel welcomed. They offer accessibility by way of restrooms, parking, entrances, fitting rooms, cashier stations and elevators to make disabled people’s experience to be more enjoyable and comfortable. If your location has got accessible features but doesn’t use signs to make them known, you will be doing a serious disservice to your customers.
