So let’s consider a slightly unpleasant but plausible scenario. Your dreams have come to life and you have opened that cute little cafe you always dreamed of. However, the set up cost has exceeded your expectation and you now have to compromise on the marketing front.

Thankfully, there are a lot of cost-effective marketing solutions that you can use to promote your restaurant. Leading the charge is restaurant signs. 

Experts marketers agree to the fact that signage is one of the cheapest marketing tools when it comes to cost per impression. While some signage solutions such as monument signs or digital signs may require hefty upfront investments, there are also other signs that don’t require much money and are a great option to get things off the ground.

They are not only inexpensive, but also simple to use, and the content may be replaced as needed. A-frame signs are one of the oldest types of signage, and they’re still quite effective, especially when you can’t afford to invest in supporting signage at the point of sale. According to studies, strategically putting A-frame signage can increase sales by 8.3 percent, making them a very profitable investment in terms of ROI.
