Planning & Organizing Marquee Sign Promotions: Put Your Changeable Letters to Work!
Having a sign marquee and changeable letters is nice. Seeing them increase business is even nicer, and they do that when you put the marquee letters to work - motivating passing traffic to visit your business.
You should change your marquee sign at least weekly. Many users change their signs daily, even more than once a day. Theaters and music venue marquees are determined by performance schedules, but other businesses often overlook great opportunities for marquee sign advertising.
Here's a simple outline of how you might organize a plan that will generate ideas for best use of your changeable letters. It can be adapted to many business types.
Organizing & Building Your Marquee Sign Promotions Plan
1. Make it formal; use a loose leaf binder or spreadsheet to plan your marquee sign marketing.
2. Begin with an index of holidays and other special days that are opportunities for promoting your services or products:
- National and state holidays,
- Other special days (Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day, Black Friday, etc.)
- Community events (Back to school, Fall festival, Homecoming, etc.)
- Dates which take advantage of promotions your vendors offer
- Historically slow days or time periods for which you need more business
3. For each date, decide which products or services to promote and the message you'll put on the marquee. Keep it simple; a marquee sign full of changeable letters is not easy for a motorist to read.
Operating/Improving Your Marquee Sign Promotions Plan
1. In advance of each upcoming promotion, make sure you will have staffing, product inventory, and the changeable letters you'll need.
2. On the night before the promotion begins, put up the marquee letters, and double-check your spelling.
3. At the end of each promotion, record sales results and suggestions for improvements next time. As you improve each time, your plan becomes an increasingly valuable asset!
You don't need the whole year planned to start, but work far enough ahead that promotions are well planned. If promotions merit supplemental advertising in other media, plan those details, too.
Always make sure your sign lights properly, that letter track is intact, and that you have an adequate supply of nice-looking marquee letters. A poorly lit sign, dirty track, and broken and damaged changeable letters are negatives.
Changing marquee letters goes faster with organized changeable letter storage and a letter changer (if you have one that uses a suction cup) that has a new cup on it. Hardened old suction cups break letters and waste a lot of time.
