Myth About Signage
A common myth about signage is - “My customers already know where my business is located” 85% of a small business customers are located or work within 5 miles of the business. However, demographic studies show that 18 - 20% of the population is relocating annually. To maintain or grow a business it is necessary to advertise so that new prospects in your area know where to find you. A sign is an inexpensive way to accomplish this.
