With Christmas around the corner, everyone is on the lookout for ways to decorate their homes and businesses. A little holiday spirit will take you a long way, especially since the Christmas season is when retail stores experience most business. Colorful lights and seasonal music will make your store stand out, increase foot traffic and boost customer satisfaction. So, if you are a business owner/manager, decorating your store is essential for attracting customers and ensuring maximum sales during Christmas.
During the Winters, days are short and nights are long, which means Christmas lights will be in use for more hours each day. For this reason, commercial Christmas lights are a good option to light up your business during the festive holiday season. LED Craft brings to you different types of Christmas lighting ideas to prepare your business in the spirit of Christmas.
1. String Lights
Miniature light bulbs are linked together and cased in a transparent PVC jacket that creates a string of lights. These could be LED lights or incandescent lighting, both of which are highly durable and ideal for outdoor Christmas décor. String lights can also be used for indoor decoration such as lighting staircases, and creating messages and designs with a range of colors and patterns.
2. LED Lighting
LED lighting can be used in the form of bulbs or in any other shape with large-scale lighting to create an attractive effect. An LED lights installation is energy efficient and can result in monetary savings as well as reduced carbon footprints. As an alternative to covering a structure with holiday lights, different colors of high quality lights can also be implemented to shine on trees, walls and buildings to completely envelope the area in color.
3. Digital Sign Board
Use your digital signage investment to display content in the spirit of Christmas. You can put up Christmas messages, Bible verses, holiday greetings and other festive greetings on your digital sign board to attract foot traffic and make your customers feel part of your Christmas celebrations.
4. Put up a tree
Christmas trees are the best way to keep the Christmas spirit alive. You could place small ones inside your store or a big one just outside to decorate the entrance of your store. Decorate the tree with fairy lights, mistletoe, stockings, Santa figures, ornaments, crafts, a tree topper and big presents kept beside it, to give a homely feeling in your small business environment.
5. Festive photo booth
An interesting idea is to create a bright backdrop with a wall of lights, and have a few props such as Xmas hats, Santa beard, a photo frame, and so on where customers can click festive pictures of them. Encourage customers to upload their pictures on social media as promotion for your business. Maybe you could give them a discount coupon for their next visit if they upload the pictures and tag your store.
6. Create a path
With Christmas lights, you can outline walkways or create a path anywhere by using stakes to attach the lights to the ground. This idea for outdoor Christmas lighting is ideal when you want to guide people around your property and keep them on the pathway without wandering off onto grassy and enclosed areas.
Christmas lighting for your business is an excellent way to drive more visitors to your store or shopping mall and motivate them to spend, thereby increasing your sales. Customers appreciate diverse, modern and eye-catching shopping spaces that offer a WOW factor and create an exciting vibe. Hence it is worth investing in elaborate and unique Christmas light displays if you want to make your business stand out during the biggest shopping season of the year!
