Offer a call-to-action when it’s meaningful.
Once you convey the information or message you want, how about using a call-to-action?
It may not be possible on all your signs depending on the space available. But, if you can add a call-to-action on one of them, it can be a powerful way to help promote a product.

We do not suggest putting call-to-actions on all your signs. Here again, be selective and use call-to-actions appropriately where they make the most sense to promote a product.

Signs of different sizes have different objectives when it comes to promoting a product.
Large signs are made to attract the attention of passersby. Of course, since they are bigger, they are visible from far away.
Whereas, smaller signs can be positioned closer to the viewer because they are smaller.
Therefore, think about your space to determine where each size can be appropriately positioned to promote a product in the most optimal way possible.
Here again, take some time to think strategically where you need signs, their size, and content, and how you should diversify the tactical visual experience.
Try to consider your space as a whole composed of windows, doors, floors, ceilings, and walls.
Then, try to put yourself in your future clients’ shoes and imagine their track that will lead to your product.
Think in terms of customer experience, because, if you multiply appropriately visual signals, this is the most effective way to promote a product with your signs.
It’s time to take advantage of your space!
