The Value of Signs
Signs are the oldest form of communication known to man, dating all the way back to the Cave Man. Signs are still the most cost effective form of advertising you can buy. This has been proven by study after study. Here’s how one study reported their findings:
|Television advertising:||30 second spot prime time $16.65 per 1000 impressions|
|Television advertising:||30 second spot late evening $10.60 per 1000 impressions|
|Magazine advertising:||1 page – 4 colour $ 7.90 per 1000 impressions|
|Daily news paper:||1/3 page black and white $ 7.75 per 1000 impressions|
|Radio:||30 second spot $ 4.10 per 1000 impressions|
|Off Premises signs:||I.E. billboards etc. $ 2.83 per 1000 impressions|
|On Premises signs:||at your location $ 1.40 per 1000 impressions|
What’s more is that if your sign is made well it should last you for years, where every other form of advertising is one-time only.
