Best Form of Advertising is Word of Mouth?

Marketing is expensive and requires money to carry out. However, this is not the case with the owners of the local small businesses. They do not see the need for having expensive signs as a way to advertise their business. They firmly believe in word of mouth to give their companies the exposure it needs. Unfortunately, it is only their regular customers who will know about their products and services and no new client will ever know their existence. What I am trying to say here is that word of mouth is an inexpensive and also effective form of advertising, but it is also the slowest type of advertising. For this reason, Kachina Sign Center emphasizes the use of outdoor advertising mediums to complement the word of mouth kind of advertising.

Word of mouth works well for a small market, but that is not enough if you want your business to expand. You need to target the existing customers and potential customers who are passing by your location. If you solely depend on word of mouth, new customers will never know about your company, or it’s products and services. Signs identify your company, the place and what it offers. It makes it easier for both existing and potential customers to know what your products and services.

Irrespective of the number of years you have been in business or the number of customers you serve per day, proper signage can immensely improve the visibility of your business and attract more and more customers to your business. Your company might not realize returns to the investment of the signage immediately you install the signage, but after a while, you will realize that indeed it was the best decision. The reason why word of mouth tends to be effective is either the kind of service you offer is excellent, the products you offer are high quality or delicious in the case of food, and maybe you know how to treat your customers nicely. When combined with outdoor signs, you will not only be serving your daily customers, but you will be helping even those that did not know about your business in the first place. Proper signage complements word of mouth and makes it more useful.

If you were relying on word of mouth as your sole mode of advertising, you might be denying your business the chance to grow. The best way to ensure that your business gets the exposure it needs, you should consider investing in professional outdoor advertising and signage from Kachina Sign Center. An outdoor sign is an as expensive as you might think, in fact, it is a one-time investment that will attract customers from far and wide for years to come.
