From the best budget sign ideas to the best techniques in holiday marketing, we covered it all in a recent Twitter Chat.
Members of the Small Business Trends community discussed their thoughts on what goes into the best business signs and other visual marketing. FedEx sponsored the hour long exchange. You can follow them at @FedExOffice . Or you can view the entire hour long discussion on Twitter under the hashtag #SMBSignage.
Small Business Trends Founder, CEO and Publisher Anita Campbell was on hand to moderate as were other members of the Small Business Trends community.
Here are some of the highlights:

We also looked at whether there are some approaches to avoid when creating good business signage:
A2. Yes, don’t try to crowd every bit of information onto a sign, it makes them unreadable #SMBSignage

Are there ways of targeting your marketing for the holidays without going too far?

A3: Don’t overlook understated appeal of a simple symbol such as a decorated egg and words “Easter sale” #SMBSignage
