Banners and Posters Keep Your Brand at Eye Level

We live in a world where there’s an advertisement on every corner. Billboards fill the air, taxis drive by sporting the name of hot night clubs to visit and marquees post clever comments to lure you inside the business. It’s important to get your name out there and your brand image directed to the right audience. In a fast paced world sometimes it’s best to put your company at eye level view.

 

Posters and banners are two forms of advertising that are hard to miss. They’re able to be placed at eye level and with a high resolution photo they can grab your attention from across the room.

How to Effectively Use Colors to Promote Your Brand

Color-Emotion Guide- Metropolitan Display

Glance around and more than likely your eyes will quickly land on a host of various colors. Color makes up our world, effects our mood and influences our decisions on everything from the food we eat to the products we buy to the clothes we wear.

 

What starts out as white light from a central source such as the sun then gets bounced off  and absorbed by different objects. Those that get reflected have different wavelengths which our eyes interpret as different colors. The longest of which being red, the shortest of which being violet. 

 

But what does this mean for your brand? 

 

Whether you’re in the middle of designing a new logo or brainstorming for your next wildly successful advertising campaign, knowing which colors to use, which to avoid, and which pairings will help you generate the highest return for your initial investment, is the best way to steer your creative team. 

 

Play your colors right and your company could very well end up with the next ‘Coca Cola Red’ or ‘Whole Foods Green’ and immortalize your brand with the hue of your choice!  

 

What Colors Are Really Saying

 

Offer red shopping carts to your retail customers!Aside from the primary emotion a color evokes, what other message are you potentially sending by using a particular color? Here’s a short overview of how three primary colors and the color psychology behind them:

 

Red

 

Red is a passionate, bold color which evokes subconscious thoughts associated with blood and love and has been a staple of global brands such as CNN, Target and Coca Cola. Its energetic undertones and ability to jump to the foreground are also perfect when you want to encourage customers to act quickly. We’re such big proponents of the hue, we even use it as as the foundation of our very own branding! 

 Antiques Economy Size Flutter Flag

Blue

 

According to one study, more than 57% of the men polled sited blue as their favorite color. Perhaps this is because it tends to denote authority and strength. If you want to impart characteristics such as trust, calmness, and wisdom, this is the hue for you. Perhaps you’re a consultant looking to build your presence, or a budding technology company attempting to get a foothold on your chosen market, blue may be just the reassurance your customers need to pick up the phone can call. 

 

Yellow

 

 

 Yellow is undoubtedly the joyful, cheery color of the bunch. It’s often associated with food and sunshine, ie: things that make us happy! It’s a clear standout in most advertisements, just be sure not to overuse it as it can also evoke a slight anxiety (think of warning signs which incorporate the hue). Wind Spinner Sidewalk Sign Frame

 

Signage: Many of our signage products can be custom printed to your specifications, and strong design elements such as color are easy to include. Custom-printed flutter flags, banners, and A-frame sign inserts are just a few of the display advertising products that can be customized. Our full color printed inserts for our Windmaster signs are another way to add a touch of color to your advertising lineup.

 

Metropolitan Display carries all the retail product displays you need to make your displays—and the color—pop! We hope you’ll bookmark our blog to stay on top of new products and display tips.

What Marketers Can Learn From Clear Channel’s Smart Billboards

Last Wednesday, Fast Company published an article which takes a closer look at Clear Channel Outdoor’s new smart billboards. Not only do these advertisements come with the same bright colors, hi-res photos and witty copy as their counterparts, they also interact with with NFC (Near Field Communication) and QR (Quick Response) codes which can communicate with the public’s smart phones.

 

The high-tech billboards, which first emerged in cities across Europe, have now broken into major U.S. and Canadian markets in 29 different cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and many other large metropolitan areas. But you don’t need to have a Disney or Google sized advertising budget to make your advertising campaigns effective. Here are a few fundamentals from this campaign you can put into practice for yourself when planning an outdoor advertising plan.

 

Eraseable Sidewalk A-Frame Sign

 

1. Immediately Engage your Customers

 

Whether you do this with your flawless, easily recognizable branding, brilliant copy or eye catching imagery, it’s important that passersby are instantly pulled in. Don’t have a QR code? No problem. Make your advertisement so compelling or funny that they stop to take a picture of it and share a laugh with their friends.

 

2. Placement Matters

 

Why spend your hard fought for marketing dollars on a billboard or marketing display that no one is going to see. When you can, look at the logistics of where your signage will be placed. Think of areas which have a lot of foot traffic. These street-level placements generally do well in places where there’s a constant barrage of people including shopping malls, hotels, and public transit stations.

 

3. Know Your Market

 

Just by having a firm grasp on the local demographic in your community, you can then parse out what individual market you want to penetrate. This will help ensure you are engaging the right kinds of groups who will be most interested in your product.

 

4. Drive Them to Your Website

 

Since most phones come enabled with 4G and 3G services, if you can catch their attention early on and make a case for why they need your product or service, you will have an easier time driving them back to your website, where, hopefully, they’ll be compelled to get more information, if not buy right then!

 

Again, while advertising dollars certainly matter, the goal is always to work smarter, not harder.

 

Metropolitan Display has everything you need to ensure your next campaign is a raging success. We hope you’ll like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and be sure to add us to your Google+ circles!

5 Apps Marketing and Advertising Professionals Should Get

While we tend to prefer the solid, tangible types of advertising you can hold in your hands (read: signage) we can’t deny that there are a lot of really great advertising tools out there that reside in the digital space. Like with most things nowadays, there are some really fantastic apps out there which can make an advertisers job so much easier.

 

We should mention that when we say ‘advertiser’ we are casting a wide net. As with most small businesses we are fully aware that shop owners often where multiple hats. Chef, barista, bookkeeper, saleswoman, and marketer all rolled into one.

 

Whether you use an iPhone, Android, tablet, or other device, these five apps are sure to help when planning your next marketing or advertising campaign– no matter the dollar amount.

 

1) Evernote

 

Especially for small business owners, your store, restaurant or coffee shop is your life! Be honest- how many nights a week have you laid awake thinking about your to-do list or next campaign idea? Or perhaps strokes of genius frequently come while you’re getting off the bus or out to dinner with your sweetie, what happens then? With Evernote, you can save yourself the pain of forgetting your next brilliant idea. You know, the one that’s going to ultimately make you independently wealthy. It’s made for on the go thoughts as they strike.

 

2) Trello

 

Trello is like to-do lists who’ve had a few espressos. It’s a collaboration tool in which each person on your team has their own individual “board”. There, tasks are listed by what each person has to do, tasks that are currently in progress, and completed tasks. Each team member can also assign tasks to one another and prioritize deadlines. Tracking your progress on a certain task is also a cinch with their built in checklists.

 

3) GoDocs

 

Have you ever taken a day off, perhaps to rest up from illness, only to have someone from the office call in a panic, asking you for a document they can’t find in their email? GoDocs will help put out any potential fires since it lets you sort and view your documents based on the latest version. It’s also a cinch to upload them from your mobile device. Think GoogleDocs with more bells and whistles.

 

4) Zerys

 

Sometimes to get people in your store, you have to find them where they are…mostly online. To do that, content marketing efforts such as blogging are king. But not everyone has time to sit down a write everyday, or even every week. Enter Zerys app. All you have to do is post a topic and suggested title to get a list of writers who might be interested in helping you write pieces of content for your blog. Once they send in a draft, you can request edits, reject all together, or post as-is. Not great at thinking of titles based? Don’t worry, there’s a function to help you with that too.

5) GoToMeeting

 

Who among us hasn’t taken a meeting on the go…or at least wished they could! GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar mobile app makes tele-meeting easy. You can see and hear the presenter’s all from your cell phone. Your schedule just got a lot more free– and full.

 

And with that, we have some signs to make. Do you have an app that helps make your advertising and marketing projects easier? Tell us about it!

 

We’re always available for consultations. Contact us at: 800.899.0015 anytime. You can also find us on Facebook and connect with us on LinkedIn and add us to your circles on Google+!
