Your Autumn Paint PaletteAugust 20, 2014
In today’s business world, a strong social media following can play an influential role for projecting a desired public image to increase customer visits. But while many business owners place an emphasis in this particular aspect of promotion, they still postpone physical image maintenance. Popular social media sites offer restaurants a cost-efficient way to engage people on a daily basis by communicating daily promotions and even posting photos of tasty dishes. However, exterior paint is often the first “real world” impression of establishments and can be a powerful decision maker for people that are on the fence about visiting a business.
Up and Coming Businesses
Some places just have a certain inherent charm about them. Well, that and/or some very social media savvy individuals that are getting people in the door. Either way, they’re looking for the next way to “level up” their business and establish credibility. Because new businesses often take over older (sometimes much older) buildings, exterior makeovers are a great place for owners to start. Rather than upgrading kitchen appliances, or choosing expensive décor a quality exterior paint job helps send a very powerful message that the old vacant building has taken on new life. The added benefit is an opportunity for business owners to recognize if there is a particular area of the building that requires attention. In many cases, we find that it’s been years since the exterior has been painted.
Well established businesses my find themselves asking important exterior questions such as: is building in need of a boost, or just a change to liven things up? Although business “regulars” have formed a personal connection with the way an establishment currently stands, owners know that a new look equals new business. The reason for this is partially due to general curiosity, but mostly because a fresh coat of exterior paint subtly suggests that business is going well. In most cases, people that drive by routinely will take notice in the change of scenery and wonder what’s going on.
For business owners, there are a limited amount of days off. This is especially true regarding establishments that are open seven days a week. So it’s understandable that making alterations to the exterior can be an arduous task. For these reasons, working with a professional painting company tends to be the most popular choice for the fastest job completion and the most quality end result.
