Digital signage is a smart advertising investment for any "brick and mortar" organization. Other forms of advertising simply can’t come close in scope, efficacy or value.
LED Advertising Gets Results
For businesses, churches, and schools, LED signs are the most effective, least expensive form of advertising for small businesses, according to the Small Business Administration (SBA). A Watchfire LED sign gives you the ability to target a large, critical audience of potential customers already at your front door for far less than a traditional advertising campaign would cost.
Advertising value is traditionally measured in CPM or cost per thousand impressions. In a typical American town, an LED sign might cost as little as 74 cents per 1,000 impressions — compared to over 22 dollars for television and 13 dollars for radio. Many organizations find they can reduce their advertising budgets for other mediums by better utilizing their business sign. Adding an outdoor digital sign is like having your own media outlet right in front of your business.
So what does this mean for an organization considering an LED sign purchase?
Let’s imagine your business conservatively sees an increase in sales of just 5%. For many, a 5% increase in sales would allow them to pay for their entire sign purchase, including operating costs, in just a matter of months. Beyond that point, future revenue growth is money that can be reinvested in the business.
Simply put, an LED sign is the best way to reach potential customers when they are in a position to act on your message. Successful advertising strategy is about reaching the right people at the right time. With a digital sign in front of your business, passing traffic will see your ad many times, giving you multiple exposures, or "frequency", that can be difficult to achieve with more expensive advertising options.
