The way you are presenting your ideas and proposals has always been a key element in standing out in the market and winning more deals for your company. It is important to be very clear in communication in what you offer, but also be very detailed in your drawings so that your customer has a good visual idea of what to expect from you.
Are you ready to sell screens and dive into connecting screens over the internet, screen management, on-site setup, and technical support?
This doesn’t really sound like anything sign companies should be dealing with. However, we do see that digital is replacing traditional signage more and more. Should you just accept this or rather look for interesting ways to get into this playing field, too?

I also have a “slow business” time right now. So indeed… I’m pushing the “plain” work of getting my customer and target lists up-to-date. A good list is what seeding is for a farmer and apart from the email address, it has to contain all the basic “ingredients” such as first and last name of the owner, director and/or manager of the company, as well as country, city, phone number or even more detailed information.

I get nervous sometimes. Really nervous… Whenever I see a sign, artwork, (or any other object on a wall) that is not straight, it starts. I try to restrain myself and walk on. However, waiting rooms or airports are the worst. You are almost confined on your seat, forced to look at the endproduct of sloppiness. Like it’s looking at me… “yes I’m here. I’m crooked, fix me”.
