Pros and Cons of Glass Doors for Your Business

When you are designing your store or office, you are facing a decision of how much glass to use. Glass doors and storefronts have become very popular in the past century. However, installing them has a few downsides. Before you take out your wallet and invest in a fully transparent store or office, read up on some important information.
Glass Doors Pros:
• You can place the best products on the storefront and attract the passing customers. Such a move can help them enter your store even if they weren’t planning to buy anything.
• You can hang advertising signs and banners inside the store to show discounts and promotions.
• You can use window decals to create a custom-designed banner or make holiday wishes depending on the season.
• You can save on energy bills during the cold season since the sunrays can heat up space.
• You can enjoy natural light to make the store’s ambience more inviting for the customers.
Glass doors are also easy to customize so you can stand out from the crowd without making large investments. They are also very easy to keep clean. All you have to do is hire a window cleaning company for regular maintenance.
Glass Doors Cons:
One of the biggest cons of installing a glass door is the same as its biggest pro. These doors offer too much visibility. Such openness may attract thieves, which can lead to damage and profit loss.
Glass doors must be installed properly in order to avoid gaps, squeaky operation, and shattering.
• Fingerprints on the doors need to be cleaned on a regular basis to keep the storefront attractive for the customers.
• If the store is located outside, strong winds and heavy snow may damage the doors.
• You have to invest in a high-quality glass in order to make sure it is hard to shatter.
Glass doors are a great way to boost profits but sometimes they can increase your expenses as well. Consider all the pros and cons to make the right choice.

3 Reasons Why People Don’t Enter Your Store

It takes a lot of time and effort to set up a store. After making a huge investment, many store owners are frustrated with the lack of customers. Are the marketing efforts failing? Did you miss your competitor’s tricks? What went wrong and when?
It may come as a surprise but many people pass by the store just because “it doesn’t look inviting”. What are these “uninviting” reasons why people don’t open the door to your shop? Let’s take a look.
1. Lack Of Information on the Door Or Shop Windows
The lack of information is the most widespread reason for passing by a store. Most people are uneasy about entering a shop, store, boutique or restaurant without knowing what to expect inside.
Most of the time, they are afraid that they can’t afford it. Accordingly, listing some prices, and offering discounts can attract a client. If you offer certain services, list them on the storefront. No one wants to waste time entering a store that doesn’t have what they need.
2. The Store Workers Don’t Appear Busy Or Not Are In Sight
While annoying store associates have become proverbial, not having someone to talk to is bad as well. If a customer doesn’t see a smiling face inside the store, he or she might not want to enter. Empty shops look closed so a client might not even try to open the door. Having a few associates looking busy and at least one free is a great way to attract a customer.
3. Streaky Glass And Dirty Entrance
The way your store looks from the outside is the key to customer attraction. If your windows are dirty, streaky, and muddy, people subconsciously make a decision to pass the store by. In the rainy months, it’s often tough to maintain the glass. However, leaving it dirty can damage your profits and reputation.
Hiring a window cleaning company for regular maintenance can solve the problem. Meanwhile, you may want to have an employee do some touch ups during the day.
Many store owners don’t realize how small details affect their business. Take a stroll down the street where your shop is located. Does it stand out from the others?
