Signs of an Evolving Brand

FASTSIGNS had a perception problem. Some prospects viewed the company as a sign shop that only sold a limited number of products to small businesses. The global company needed to evolve its brand to match its actual B2B-focused offering.

Moment of Clarity

The reality is that FASTSIGNS offers so much more than the name implies. Sure, the company produces signs. And fast. But it can also create any type of business communications imaginable. To change perception, we developed a new tagline — More than fast. More than signs. — that strategically positioned FASTSIGNS as so much more than a sign company.

“We found working with AvreaFoster to be a valuable experience. They asked the right questions and helped us evolve our brand positioning from selling a product (signs) to selling a service: smart thinking to help companies resolve their visual communications challenges using a broad array of signs and visual graphics. We’ve worked with them on several projects since the initial one, and appreciate their insight.”

Solution

With the new strategic positioning in place, we overhauled the FASTSIGNS brand and applied it to variety of deliverables. In-store signage. Brochures. Direct mail. Sales tools. Then we created a B2B-focused marketing campaign that included print, radio and national TV spots.

Results

One year after FASTSIGNS launched this newly evolved brand campaign, measured awareness and perception increased significantly. Same center sales doubled and web visits reached an all-time high — 3.3 million visits annually.
