You Need It.....Yesterday!

Every now and again, you stumble on something you need in a hurry.  Maybe something broke, maybe something needs to be updated, maybe it's a spruce up you'd like for your business or you just want to look better than the guy up the street.

Well, this morning this blogger took it upon himself to take a stroll through the vast warehouse of in stock items we have here at United Sign and that you can have in your hands and working for you as fast as we can ship it to ya!

Here's a quick gallery of a few things we have on hand, unfortunately.....I got caught roaming around taking pictures or I would have gotten one of each of the thousands of ready to roll products we offer.

They might not be top of mind things for most people, but for you they help your customers know how much you offer compared to what they might come in needing.  You can help people avoid areas with the pylons, let them know you can feed them and what payment methods you accept.  Simple, quick and affordable.

Here's a link to United Sign's Website.  Give it a click and let us help fill your needs to let everyone know what you are offering!  You can always call too!  1-800-821-6530

If you're looking for practical uses for this stuff, we're still pretty proud of this video from our marketing guys.   Have a look at "United Gas" if you have not seen it already.

Welcome to United Gas!

The daily grind of owning and operating a gas station, or any business for that matter often gets so hectic that you forget some of the essentials of business.   Essentials like letting people know that you offer way more than what they have things they want too!

Our crack team of media mavens has come up with this really great 3-D mock up of a fictional gas station called "United Gas".  Have a look at the 2 minute video and see if there is anything we can help you with by way of the common, everyday things you might not think about or have been putting off.

Sure, it's a tour of some pretty common things, but they are all essential to your bottom line and your small investment will help return profits just by utilizing the space you have around you already!

After you've had a look, click below and we'll help you get anything you need for your business!  We're here to be an elemental part of your success!

Promote Your Business With United Sign

We know a thing or two about building brands, building loyalty and building those things on a tight budget.

One thing is for sure, when it comes to building a brand or loyalty, top of mind awareness is paramount.  If you operate a gas station you want people to automatically think of you every time they need gas. If it's a restaurant, you hope to have people not even consider going somewhere else.  Maybe you are new on the scene and want to get the word out that you are in business!

Yes, great products, people and multiple offerings are all key, but, if you'd like to add a little icing on the cake, we've got a full line of promotional products that you can use to entice customers to check you out, assure them that you appreciate their business or give them something practical that can help in their day to day goings on.

Take a look at our promotional products page.  We offer a wide variety of items and some start at under a buck!  Products from pen sized personal hand sanitizers to personalized awards for great employees, or outstanding customers you'd like to leave a lasting impression on!

Tail End of Summer

We hate to say it, but we're well past the apex of Summer and it's now time to start thinking about fall.  Not that there is anything against Fall or Winter, but it's a good time to freshen up your look and keep a seasonal theme going be it in your place of business, maybe your school or even your city. We have all kinds of options to help you keep up to date!

One big way to make the most of the indoor months are trade shows!  You get to network with people looking for your goods and services and you want them to have a little take away item so they remember you.  A business card is important, but so is something that is useful, practical and easy on your budget!

Our promotional products page is a great place to do a little shopping for some personalized goodies from pens to personal health care items like germ prevention and we can even take a look at your need for some company Christmas items that will make a splash with your employees and customers.

Click on the United Sign logo below to go directly to the promotional items page and happy shopping.  We appreciate you taking a look!

The Weekend!!

The weekend is upon us and hopefully you're getting a chance to enjoy a little "R&R" with family and friends.

We enjoy the weekends too.  We're really lucky to live and work where we do.  We are really close to the shore of Lake Michigan and if you've never been here....we'd highly recommend a visit!

Enjoy all of our super clean beaches,  some of the best in the world actually.  There are great restaurants, friendly people and a tough as nails work ethic that resounds across the generations!  There are some pretty big events still to come this year.  The Unity Festival brings in the top names in Christian contemporary music artists and the Michigan Irish Music Festival is coming up in September.  Both of which we are very proud to work with.

We're proud to live in work in such a place, and no matter where you are, we hope you share the same pride in your community and do what you can to be a part of making it better!

Thank you from all of us at United Sign for your business!

You need a sign to attract some attention, point out goods and services, and you need it to be able to withstand the elements and stay looking good.  We offer a wide array of signs and they can fit any budget!  You might even be able to score a deal!

Take a look at the Wind Sign Curb Frame.  It's a real champ when it comes to grabbing some attention!  The frame itself goes together in about 10 minutes and the sides of the frame snap open and shut to hold your sign in place.  The signs can be customized, or we have a great selection of ready to roll signs for food, car washes, coffee and more!  Say you sell out of donuts in the morning?

The Power Grip Wall System

Happy Monday, if you are into that kind of thing.

We just had a discussion here about wall applications for signs and banners and things.  Fascinating way to start a Monday huh?

When you need to get a message across, or maybe affirm a brand, build a little team or school spirit, what do you use?

There are temporary banners, but those tend to get stolen and if you have something desirable on them like say a legendary school mascot or maybe a lifestyle product that people love, like say auto parts.  Guys like to hang auto parts banners in the garage and they don't mind running up your cost for promotion up to outfit the man cave.

You can always paint, but that gets expensive quick and has to be kept up or painted over every couple of years.

Have a look at the Power Grip Wall System.

What's great about this system?  Everything!  Easy to install, easy to change, affordable and you can have it in just about any size you can imagine.  It's great for hallways, building exteriors, stages....lot's of different things.

In this video, you'll see us installing the Power Grip Frame System at the beach hut on the shores of Lake Michigan at the Pere Marquette Beach.  Muskegon has a new campaign going on called Watch Us Go.  You'll see the sign go up, how easy it is and may find yourself drawn to visit this pristine beach.  We'd love to see you if you do come and hope your tell the tourism board that you saw the beach in our video.

Thanks for the quick read, we appreciate your time.

Hello There!

It's been a while!  Hope you are doing well and 2015 is shaping up to be a good year for you.  We here at United Sign?  Why yes, thank you!  We are doing just fine and enjoying a somewhat cool and comfortable Michigan Summer.

Pleasantries aside, we have a new blogger in place here at United Sign.  My name is Andy and I have a knack for just trying to talk to people and be relate-able.  I know that most people come to read a blog looking for ideas, creative ways to use products and let's be honest...reading a blog can be a perfect way to spend a few minutes of down time and hopefully you'll find some enjoyment in what's presented as well as some useful information and ideas to help you build brands, customer loyalty, revenue etc. and so forth.

We are working on adding all kind of cool things to our offerings here, including promotional products that you can use!  My background in business is developing loyalty by creating top of mind awareness.  There are a multitude of ways to do this, but the key to it, in my humble opinion?  No matter your product or want your customer to think that if they want an ice cream cone....there is only one place to go....YOURS.

Ah're worried about the reward system things out there.  They are effective, they develop a pattern for people and their frequency in your business.....but not everyone is some large nationwide chain that can do the points thing.  We get that.  A simple surprise once in a while is a welcome way to let your regular customers know you appreciate them.  Maybe something practical?  Like a customized key chain with a level in it?  Sure you wouldn't want to construct a rocket with it's measurements, but what mom couldn't use something like this when she's out getting back to school clothes for her kid, and to be honest...what kid should go without getting his inseam measured in the middle of a store in front of everyone?  (Yes, I am a product of the 70's)

The best part is....they are under a buck!  They also come in handy for construction sites, realtors, travelers and more!  Click on the image and see!  Take a look around the site as well and see if this or something else suits your fancy!

It's a simple, affordable way to develop and maintain a little loyalty and you are in their pocket, purse or on their key chain all the time!  Not to mention, the gratitude they feel when you say "Hey, Thanks for being a customer.  We appreciate you"

Until next time!  Thanks for reading!
