Flipping Houses: Turning a Wreck into a Gem


About Me

Flipping Houses: Turning a Wreck into a Gem

Five years ago, I decided to start my own side business. Along with keeping my job as a construction worker, I decided to use my savings to purchase an older residence. The plan was to fix up the place and then sell it at a profit. It didn't take me long to figure out that while my side business would take up most of my free time, it would make me a lot of money. Today, I still flip three or four houses a year. My strategy developed through trial and error, and I've learned how to evaluate the potential of a property first, then buy second. I know what must be done in the way of exterior painting, making the place secure, and ultimately finding the right buyer. If you are thinking about trying this kind of sideline, read on. What I've learned will help you a lot.

Tips For Making Your Business Sign More Noticeable To Customers

Your business sign conveys one of the first impressions of your company to potential customers.  A strong sign can be an incredible draw to people passing by your facility, causing them to become curious about what types of products and services you offer.  However, merely erecting a sign outside of your building may not be potent enough to bring in the clientele that you are looking for.  Use these tips to learn more about what you can do to make your business sign more noticeable.

Hire A Commercial Sign Company

One of the best ways for you to increase the number of people who take notice of your business sign is to hire a commercial sign company.  Your current sign may be old and outdated, as well as faded from years of exposure to the ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun.  This can give it a dull appearance that blends into the landscape, hardly attracting much attention from potential customers.

Want a cool 3D sign?  A commercial sign company can help you with that.  Many of these businesses work with graphic artists, who can help you design a logo and sign that incorporates your company's colors in a new and refreshing way.  A professional sign conveys quality, and this may be just what you need to bring in the crowds.

Employ A Sign Waver

There's a reason why sign wavers are becoming more and more popular.  Sign wavers are paid individuals who hold a sign or banner and flash it through the air as they wave at those passing by.  Although motorists may get a laugh out of watching sign wavers dance a jig, the business owners who employ them are laughing all the way to the bank. 

To make your sign waver even more noticeable, adorn them in a colorful and fun outfit. The attention that sign wavers are able to drum up is quite considerable, and may be just the ticket to getting more people to notice your business.

Use A Flashing Sign

Incorporating flickering lights in your sign is another way to get your business noticed.  Flickering lights can flash off and on intermittently in their entirety, or, the single letters of your business name can turn off and on individually.  This is a welcome retreat from more staid signs and is a sure way to get your business noticed.

Your sign can be highly effective if you know what to do.  Use these tips as soon as possible so you can grow your business through a great sign.
