Fact #1:  76% of people said they have entered an organization they had never been to before because of the sign.

Fact #2: 75% of people say they have referred someone to an organization solely because of the sign.

Referrals are any organization’s most prized engagement. LED signs create a sense of uniqueness, reliability, and trustworthiness, making them the best possible marketing tool for assisting referrals.


Fact #3: 67% of people purchased a product or service because the sign caught their eye.

Most signs are “invisible” to the passer-by. This is because typical sign designs are so common, that audiences become desensitized to signs that in the past would have captured their attention.

Fact #4: 50% of people said that an old or poor sign deterred them from entering a business.

Signs are often considered a decoration, or ornament for a property. Of course, signs can serve this purpose, and do it well, but many underestimate the power of signs. Signs are one of the most important marketing tools for an organization. Be sure to regularly check your sign and upgrade when needed to avoid a decline in marketing effectiveness and loss of revenue.


Fact #5: 68% of people believe a sign reflects the quality of an organization’s product or service.

Fact #6: 60% of organizations that updated their signage saw a 10% increase in revenue.

If your sign is old, damaged, faded, or failing in some way, keep this in mind. It is virtually guaranteed that upgrading your signage will increase your marketing plan’s effectiveness.


Fact #7: 85% of your audience/customers/parishioners are within a 5-mile radius of your location.

The people you seek to serve most, are all within your reach. However, if you do not stand out, because of an outdated sign your organization will suffer losses as a result.
