This week's survey 
(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  
 

  

Our last survey results...

What needs to be done to help educate the sign industry about the real cost of signage and what pricing is required to run and maintain a profitable business. I am not talking about the various estimating products, I am talking about business education.
 

  • I think we need to regulate the industry first with licensing that helps to educate the new arrival to the business and give them a good understanding or financial part of the business. the same as any other trades (electricians, plumbers, builders...). Also we should have an hourly rates for what we offering for designing and artworks plus hourly rate for installation. 

  • Bloody stupid question since anybody starting a business should know enough about business to understand the basics. If they fail, they can stuff up an industry and of course themselves and their customers. They can give an industry a bad name.

  • This education is needed for all types of business, not just signage. If someone buys a printer and a computer and sets up a business without having the financial nous to run it at a profit they will fall in the same heap as the fashion shop or the cafe down the road whose owner did not understand how to run a business. 

  • It's amazing how many bad business people survive in our industry because it is a growth industry. Can they survive the bad times when they come around? I doubt it unless they learn very quickly the ins and outs of running a business.

  • This question pertains to all businesses, not just our sector. What needs to be done, well the simple answer is that any individual that wants to go into business should learn about the business of running a business first and foremost, then he/she can learn the trade.

  • There are plenty of schools and other institutions these people can go to to learn about running a business. 

(As a publishing practice to protect ourselves from any potential liability, company and individual names that are referred to negatively in any of these comments are removed)

Best Shift Ever - Waitress Receives Life-Changing Tip
Smile!

A couple came upon a wishing well. The wife leaned over, made a wish and threw in a penny.
The husband
decided to make a wish, too but he leaned over too much, fell into the well, and drowned.
The wife was
stunned for a moment but then smiled, "It really works!"
