Your target audience (age, earnings, consumer-type, etc.).
The tone to embrace (cheeky, chirpy as well as laddish; or something more significant, cerebral as well as innovative?).
Whether you’ll be marketing in daytime or during the night (this can determine your palette, where your major message is ideal positioned on a well lit board …).
Where you’ll place your board (to avoid accidents; to ensure it will not remain in straight, blinding sunshine for the majority of the mid-day, as well as consequently, ineffective).
With all this arranged, make certain to then:.
Use a large-sized typeface, so that your message can be checked out from afar (and so passers-by will not have to rummage in their bags for their glasses, and so on).

Stick to one message just: the promo of your latest Special Offer? A new product statement? Raising recognition that a particular writer remains in your store TODAY doing a book signing? A longer-term deal that will require resilient printed A-board advertising ‘with legs’ (reason the pun)?
Whatever your sidewalk display board’s purpose, don’t crowd it with greater than one promotion; rationale is to make it effortless for individuals to review, to promptly grasp. If they need to ‘function’, they’ll maintain walking. And you don’t want that.

Believe us; once potential consumers are in that A-frame of mind, folks, they’re as good as marketed.
