As Yarra Ranges is a popular tourist destination it's important for appropriate directional signage to be placed around the municipality. Businesses in Yarra Ranges can apply to have directional signs placed on roads throughout the area. Our Infrastructure Services team manage the installation of these signs in conjunction with VicRoads.
It is important to remember that your business will not necessarily flourish just on the back of a road sign. Also, the nature of your business and its location will determine the type of sign you are eligible for.
An integrated approach to your marketing is recommended, utilising a range of promotional tools best able to reach your target market, so a well constructed Marketing Plan is essential. Signage will be just one part of that plan. Remember, research shows that 82% of tourists already plan their trip before they leave home and that the purpose of the road sign is to assist them find their desired destination.
