It is a little kept secret - the nicer your business looks on the outside, the more likely you are to draw customers through your doors. In fact, 95% of consumers agree: the appearance of a storefront affects their shopping decisions. Keeping your storefront appealing to shoppers is paramount to the survival of your business. You have a few options when it comes to sprucing up the curb appeal of your shop without breaking the bank, or packing and moving to a new location.
Ensure that you keep the outside of your business clean and tidy. With a few small changes, you can change the entire impression of your business, creating a cleaner, crisper feel to the exterior of your building in a matter of minutes.
- Clean up any stray litter that may have blown into your business grounds, or on the sidewalk outside of your doors.
- Regularly sweep any fallen leaves or twigs away from the door and off the walkways leading up to your building. Don't forget to look up; there may also be cobwebs to dispose of.
- Wash the windows. Nothing says neglect quite like a murky window; on the other hand, sparkling windows are fresh and welcoming.
- Add a few potted plants or flowers near the entrance. Do you already have potted flowers? Ensure they stay healthy with regular watering; depending on the type of plant, add plant food into the water or soil if necessary. Make sure to keep the plants free of litter and any dead growth.
If you want to dig a little deeper, you may want to have your ground professionally landscaped. A landscape designer will not only work with you to turn your dream grounds into a reality. They are trained to know what types of plants will work best with your soil and growing conditions. Their expertise will be invaluable in making your curb appeal outstanding.
Years of being exposed to pollution and dust will take a toll on the front facade of your business. You may want to consider having it professionally cleaned. A professional cleaner will not only raise the curb appeal of your business. You may be surprised how much newer your building looks after a good scouring. You may want to call a professional cleaning service if you have any of these issues:
- Stains on the front of your building
- Dirt or leaves embedded into any cracks or crevices
