In addition to having an effective color scheme and easy-to-remember message and call to action, it is necessary to have a layout for your outdoor visual that grabs the attention of the person and gets your message across.
Directional cues on your ad go a long way toward affecting the outcome of the interaction between it and the potential customer.

The key is to experiment with a variety of designs and directional cues to find the ones that resonates the most with your target audience so that you can be part of the three percent rather than having your sign and business bypassed.
