If your Ottawa storefront or business has had the same awning for some time, you may be wondering whether this is the year that you should update your commercial awning.
The following are a few benefits of updating your business awning:
Spruce up your storefront
Perhaps the awning you have on your building right now is looking a little old, tattered, and faded, which does not create the best first impression for your business. Updating your commercial awning is an easy and affordable way to give your building’s exterior a bit of a “facelift” and make it more welcoming for customers.
Add a larger shaded outdoor space
Especially if your business is a restaurant or café and you are using an awning to shade a patio, you may be considering updating your awning if you have increased your patio’s size. With the COVID-19 pandemic still a concern in Ottawa, many patrons may still be more comfortable with outdoor dining than indoor dining. As a result, many restaurant and café owners are enlarging their patios in order to be able to serve more customers. If this is the case with your business, then upgrading to a larger commercial awning may be of benefit to you.
Brand recognition with Awnings
Has your company rebranded recently? Perhaps you have a commercial awning that has your old logo still on it, or perhaps the colour or style of your awning doesn’t match with your company brand. Updating your awning to better reflect your company brand can help promote brand awareness amongst your target customers.
Attract more attention to your business
If would-be customers are passing by your building without giving it a second look, updating your awning can be a way to attract the attention that you are looking for. A bright new awning that helps your building to stand out from among the others in the area might inspire more people to stop and see what your business has to offer.
Commercial awnings can also double as signs and be printed with company logos as well as other information such as your phone number or your website address.
Better photos on Social Platforms
More than ever, we are living in a digital age, and good photos online matter. Whether you are posting photos of your business on your company website or looking to make your business more Instagram-worthy for your customers to take selfies in front of, updating your commercial awning will help.
