Tuesday, April 19th, 2016
Curb Appeal Business

American Solar tinting offers our customers custom logos for their corporate businesses to help advertise their companies. We have worked alongside local offices and branches of Wells Fargo with their logos and films. (more…)

Attract Customers With A Beautified Storefront

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Aesthetically Pleasing StorefrontsAttracting new customers is always an uphill batter, and in today’s increasingly technologically driven world, it is becoming harder and harder to differentiate yourself. You don’t need to be told that people can buy almost anything online nowadays, from books to electronics, clothes, and even groceries. People don’t go shopping because it’s convenient. They don’t drive15-30 minutes to a store because it is quicker than going to Amazon.com. They don’t stand in the checkout line because it is easier than clicking that little “checkout” button online. People go shopping for the experience. And it all starts with the storefront.

Aesthetically Pleasing Storefronts Help Attract Customers

The aesthetics of your store – its curb appeal – is perhaps more important than ever before. You are no longer just competing with the other stores in your block or in your city. You are now competing with stores online, across the world. Yikes! This is why it is important to give current and potential customers the experience they are looking for. And it all starts with an aesthetically pleasing storefront. If your storefront doesn’t scream, “Hey, this is a great place to shop!” then you have already failed. According to studies, as much as 70% of first-time sales at restaurants, retail shops, lodging facilities, and attractions come from curb appeal.

Clean Up Your Storefront

You want to present a clean, fresh appearance for passersby. This means picking up litter, cleaning graffiti, and keeping your storefront in tip-top shape. And don’t forget to clean that glass. Smudge marks are an eyesore that screams, “We just don’t care enough!”

Rotate Your Window Display

Constantly update your window display to make sure it remains fresh. New items will not only help attract new customers, but will also help influence previous customers to come back and explore these new items.

Invest in Exterior Lighting

Exterior lighting is not just about visibility and safety. It is about aesthetic appeal as well. Lighting can help illuminate your business and attract new customers.

The Benefits of Curb Appeal and Custom Logo Graphics

Logo Graphics Curb Appeal

If you rely on foot traffic, poor curb appeal can hurt your business. With custom logo graphics, however, you can more easily attract new customers.

If you heavily rely on foot traffic, poor curb appeal can break your business.

The average attention span for humans reportedly dropped to eight seconds in 2013, so if you don’t have curb appeal, you aren’t going to attract any customers. With custom logo graphics and solid curb appeal, however, you can hold the attention of those passing by and get them into your store.

Improving Curb Appeal

As consumers, we have to make pretty quick decisions on whether or not we want to buy something. Normally, that comes down to the quality of the product and the trustworthiness of the business. If a company does not make any effort to look enticing or peak the interest of a potential customer, then most people will not provide you with your business. Worst of all, potential customers may walk by and not even realize your business exists! With a custom logo graphics, however, you can easily let the public know what you do and why they should pay you a visit! Even if you can’t convert them into a customer right then and there, you will at least leave a lasting impression for the next time they need a service your business provides. (more…)

Windows Curb Appeal

In order to boost curb appeal, window tints and window graphics can help turn a passerby into a customer.

If your business relies on foot traffic, how effective are your windows at highlighting why customers should pay attention to your store?

Custom Logo Graphics Drive Business

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015
Custom Logo Graphics

A custom logo graphic is exactly what it sounds like, a graphic placed in your store window that not only displays your logo, but often important information.

Remember the classic line from the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie Kindergarten Cop, “Who is your daddy and what does he do?” Well, customers tend to have a similar experience with your business every time they approach your front door. What is your business and what do you do? If these questions can’t be easily answered when looking at your storefront, then you have already failed. Not only does your storefront need to be aesthetically pleasing to help attract customers – as much as 70% of first-time sales come from curb appeal – but it also needs to better inform potential customers about your business. This is where Custom Logo Graphics can really help.

What Are Custom Logo Graphics?

A custom logo graphic is exactly what it sounds like, a graphic placed in your store window that not only displays your logo, but often important information such as store hours or your company tagline. These seemingly simple bits of information can be the difference between a new customer and a lost opportunity.

“Store window displays play important roles in influencing shoppers’ store entry decisions and their perceptions of brand/store image,” explain researchers Hyunjoo Oh and Jenny Petrie in their article “How do storefront window displays influence entering decisions of clothing stores?”

Does your storefront leave much to be desired?

Additional Benefits of Custom Logo Graphics

  1. Advertising: Your storefront – your curb appeal – should be treated like advertising, because that is what it is. Just like a television or print ad, your storefront should be viewed as a way to attract potential customers.
  2. Branding: Window graphics are just another way to build your brand.
  3. Provide Direction: Window graphics are a great way to provide direction in an aesthetically pleasing way. What are your hours? Where is parking located? Are you open? Push or pull?
  4. And More!

Curb Appeal with Window Graphics

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Curb Appeal Window GraphicsWhen driving through a city or town, chances are most store window fronts look effectively identical to the passerby.  Only the truly outstanding or outrageous storefronts get a second glance.  People are too busy to give an uninteresting sight a second look.  This is bad for businesses that rely on word-of-mouth to survive—a picture isn’t worth a thousand words if nobody sees it.  This is where window graphics come into play.  By investing in the art of catching the wandering eyes of passing people, known as “curb appeal,” a company can build more business for itself through an inviting façade that speaks volumes about the quality content inside.

How to Appeal

The sign to a store is absolutely everything when drawing in crowds from the street.  A standard sign is mediocre and doesn’t catch enough attention.  A sign with flair will make heads literally turn in surprise, and the passerby with think, “What an interesting store.  I should look into it.”  The payoff comes when the person remembers the interesting sign and looks up the store on the Internet—or better yet, takes a moment to stop inside and browse the wares.  The three major aspects of a store sign are visibility, upkeep, and information.  Someone should be able to see the sign while riding down the street or, better yet, from across the street.  A faded sign should be refurbished or replaced, as an unattractive sign will tell the viewer more about the store than the store itself might say.  The store’s name should be easy to see among the marquee, and store hours should stand out enough for someone giving a quick glance to know whether the establishment is open right at that moment or not.  All of this should be clear with a single look as someone walks or drives past.

It’s not Just About the Street

Parking areas are just as important as the signs themselves.  If possible, provide enough parking for your projected business model.  Make sure all parking areas are clear of debris and holes that can damage cars or feet.  Ideally, spaces should be marked with weatherproof paint.  If parking is communal, then point your customers to the nearest parking lot.  When your customers draw close to your door, you should consider their needs for the store entrance.  Mark the way the doors swing on both sides of the doorway and clearly point out handicap accessibility.  Importantly, make sure that any signs saying whether your store is currently open or not are turned on or turned to “Open”.  Turning a customer away at the last minute is painful when you worked so hard to draw that person’s attention.
