If you own a brick and mortar business, it’s important to consider the curb appeal of your building. It can make a difference in more or less opportunity and sales.
Landscaping is something business owners often forget. It doesn’t matter if you rent or own your building. Future customers don’t know or care. They only know what they see and observe.
This is true of the hardscaping around your building too. Are shrubs and trees being pruned and cared for?
If you rent, it doesn’t matter if your landlord cares or not, it’s costing you business. It can cost you more business than the fees associated with keeping the outside of your building looking nice out of your own pocket.
Consider landscaping around your business an investment in the growth of your business.
Consider a little creativity around your business. Making your location a landmark which people remember can help improve business. Unique trees, potted plants and the color of your door or front facing building can also make a difference.
Take a moment to standouts your building and ask, would I shop here? Does this entrance impress me? Do I feel safe and comfortable? Is Your business clean?
Ask your customers or clients about their experience. Was it easy to find you? Are there any landmarks which they remember about your location?
Ask a lot of questions. Check out your competition and put together a landscaping plan which will help put your business on the map.
