How Jay Clarida uses SpellBrite to his Benefit
Jay Clarida had been running a successful barbershop in Elmhurst, Illinois when a patron and friend suggested Jay try a SpellBrite sign to promote his business. Initially reluctant to make the investment, Jay finally decided to give it a try. He was shocked by the results.
“Business was good so I didn’t think a SpellBrite sign would do much, but I gave it a try and got a sign that says JMCBARBERSHOP.COM. Am I glad I did! Customer traffic and sales increased almost immediately.” said Jay. In fact, a few months after adding the ultra-bright LED SpellBrite sign, Jay added a third barber to take advantage of the increased traffic. “The value of the sign really hit home when a new customer, who was drawn in by the sign, asked if we had just opened. We’ve been here for 7 years and he never noticed us! Now, my business is up over 40%.”
To continually attract attention, Jay has been alternating the animations of the neon-like sign from flashing to pulsing to static, but then he decided to step things up. With SpellBrite’s click-together design, Jay was able to change his one row sign of JMCBARBERSHOP.COM to a three row sign that says JMC (new row) BARBER (new row) SHOP. Now he pulses or flashes just the row BARBER. Immediately customers began asking Jay if he got a new sign, and new folks have been drawn in. Jay plans to use this configuration of the SpellBrite sign for a month or two and then change it again.
“I certainly didn’t expect it, but SpellBrite has been great for business. And every time I change the sign, everybody notices.” says Jay.
