Metal beer signs. They are in bars everywhere. One would assume that they are actually a decent marketing tactic, given their prevalence. However, I have a hard time rationalizing the ROI myself. Have I ever bought a beer because I saw a sign up? I don’t think so. Have you?
The only thing I can figure is that it’s a good relationship building tactic for a brewery (or distributor) and the bar or restaurant receiving the free sign. And it obviously can’t harm your brand. Unless your metal sign is covered in STDs. Or explodes metal shards into someone’s face. Or causes the apocalypse. In these rare cases, a metal sign might hard your brand.
Regardless, there’s a pretty good possibility that we will need metal beer signs at some point. And with that in mind, we thought we’d start thinking about them. We’d like to start pretty basic before adding the razzle dazzle (lasers, smoke machines, 3D motorized pirates). So here’s a rectangular mockup of what a metal sign might look like.
This is a first pass, so we’d love any and all comments from you, our faithful reader. Thoughts?
