First impressions matter, especially when it comes to your main business entrance which is one of the first things your clients and visitors see when they enter your business premises. As a business owner with a busy daily schedule, you might not have spent much time thinking about the outdoor physical aspects of your business such as the entranceway or even your business entrance door. With that in mind, it’s important to note that creating a welcoming business entrance should not be overlooked as it leaves a lasting first impression of your business.
Here are three ways to create an attractive business entrance that will make a good first impression on potential clients and customers.
Keep the area clear and clean
From the moment a potential client approaches your entryway and walks through the door their first opinion about your business is formed. Therefore, it is important to make sure your entryway always looks enticing by keeping the area clear and clean from any rubbish or obstacles. You can beautify your entrance by making sure your hedges are well-kept or even invest in potted plants.
Place Indoor and outdoor business signs
It’s important to determine whether clients and visitors can easily spot your business entrance from a distance. Before visitors enter your business premises, they need to be assured that they are in the right place. Placing not only indoor but also outdoor business signs that align with your branding will make your business recognisable to visitors.
Replace or install a new entrance door
Although many business owners might initially not consider this, installing or fitting a new entrance door or storefront will help upgrade your business entrance. When it comes to your business front door, it makes sense that you would want to make sure that you install a secure and stable door. However, it’s also important to consider that you’re not only looking for a door that’s secure but also for one that complements your style and business branding.
There are many options when it comes to choosing the right door for your business entrance. Every door has a different purpose. Therefore, you would not only have to consider the entrance door colour but also the material (such as steel, aluminium, or glass) and functionality.
For example, you could look into installing aluminium entrance doors with automatic sensors or push pad activation. Additionally, you could also consider sliding and folding doors, anti-finger trapping safety doors or even glass doors if you’re looking to add more light into your reception area. Essentially, the type of door you choose could change the look of your business entrance and contribute to making a good first impression.
