It appears that people often come up with simple yet creative ideas to stand out from the crowd. This is especially worth mentioning when it comes to business tactics. We guess that some shop owners can really make professional marketers jealous of their talent. The list below is the best proof!
1. The carrots
It appears that these bags contain carrots, but someone decided to be creative when labeling the product. As you can see, the label states something different, but it is also technically correct. We wish Christmas time were here now.
2. The instruction
As far as safety instructions go, this is probably the best one we have yet to see. One could never expect to see such a sign, even considering the type of place. We wonder if someone actually followed that instruction.
3. The nutritional facts
We all know the importance of knowing what we actually eat. Many people read the label carefully before buying or consuming something. This ice cream shop, however, chose a different approach.
4. The pizza ad
Ads are not something obsolete. Even though there are not that many print ads today, you could still see a lot of visualizations online. This pizza shop owner knows how important these ads are and created a superb one.
5. The sign
The business you own must be presented flawlessly. You can never be caught with something you claim to do for a living that is not working properly. In this case, the maintenance shop joked about their doorbell not working.
6. The coffee shop
Apart from the crazy name, this coffee shop has really good styling and color combination. But the best part of the image is the sign. This is the kind of thing to boost your mood and having a cup of coffee in the other hand helps, too.
7. The post
Most small businesses know how important their presence on social media is. One donut shop had a great strategy for advertising their business: posting cute pictures on their social media accounts. This pug is all the advertising we want to see.
8. The strategy
Selling a particular product is not easy. You think that being polite and knowing about the product would land you a deal every time, but we disagree. What you need is a clever strategy, and this label at a grocery store is a lesson in marketing.
9. The fan
We love puns and we share them every time we see them. in this case, one shop located in Istanbul installed a really cool fan-made from three skateboards. So, it is fair to say that this is one skateboard fan.
10. The cups
One of the things we always find hard to do is choose the correct size of our morning coffee cup. Sometimes, we feel we picked the right one but, in most cases, we think we should have gotten the bigger option. This chart makes life easy!
11. The wine stand
It seems that some people are really into making the kind of advertisement that would make everyone laugh. This was the desired effect here for sure and we are convinced that it worked like a charm! That is one funny wine section greeting.
12. The list
Some shop owners can really push it when they try to stand out from the rest. We believe that this shop became a favorite of everyone who happened to see this sign. It is witty and the attention to detail is amazing.
13. The avocado stand
Trying to sell fruit or vegetables is not rocket science but it is not easy. You need to draw customers’ attention and you need to be creative, too. In this case, the stand received a special sign featuring a scene from GoT that everyone probably liked. That egg sure looks like an avocado, too.
14. The kids’ corner
This image was taken at the section will all the kids’ books at a bookstore. Instead of praising every customer’s kid, there was a rather interesting message for everyone to see. In this case, we consider the sign a bit too much but we get the general idea and we admit it is funny.
15. The graffiti
16. The honest menu
As you can see here, one shop manager knew how most parents felt when their kids were not happy for some reason and refused to eat. This is one clever idea that solves more than a single problem and we are sure parents would love it!
17. The sign
Needless to say, tapping on the glass would surely not scare the ice cream but we all know what the sign is actually for. Some rude customers tap on the glass all the time to point out which flavor they want but that is not okay.
18. The cones
Talking about ice cream, you simply must admit that this is the best ice cream cone display you have ever seen. There are different types of cones, and one of them is not particularly suitable for putting ice cream in it.
19. The best employee
This is an example of how employees can demonstrate their sense of humor. The clients who saw this surely laughed! What you see here is the fake poster one employee created on his last workday.
20. The funny signs
Great advertising is often hilarious and we love to see such ideas. You can see how one tattoo shop decided to greet their clients every day. These funny signs are hilarious and we bet people smile when they see them.
21. The honest offer
Most marketers try to come up with irresistible products and offer for the clients to see. These offers are traps in disguise and it is rare to see a business offering products and services with no hidden conditions.
22. The clever message
Here is one really smart way for a business owner to make people think twice before insulting or abusing staff members. People often fail to realize how rude they actually are to the person in front of them.
22. The reality check
This coffee shop decided to give their clients something to think about while their wait for their cup of latte. The sign is full of sarcasm but it is funny because it’s true. How can you argue with that sign?
23. The mouse
One computer repair shop decided to advertise the business in an unusual way. They created this setup and showed they have a sense of humor. What a clever idea!
24. The setup
Here is another setup created by a person with a twisted sense of humor. This is the shelf in an art store and someone thought that such a setup would be a clever thing to do. It is funny and a bit weird, too.
25. The instructions
All objects that need to be handled with care should come with detailed instructions on how they should be used. This store decided to add an unusual instruction that all clients surely loved.
26. The label
Aussies are well-known for their specific sense of humor. Some would probably consider them to be too direct when they need to name this or that but we love the direct approach. The label you see is the best example.
27. The pun
Even a hardware store can show that everything is better with some sense of humor as part of the ingredients. This ladder received a funny addition to its description and we love it!
28. The receipt
Printing a receipt is a straightforward process but one donut shop decided to add a twist. As soon as one of the employees got the chance to add a personal touch, this happened. We guess that every customer laughed when they saw it.
29. The sign
Some signs are brilliant simply because they are right on point. In other cases, the signs show us a new way to look at something trivial. In this case, the coffee shop sign you see described the yawn as a scream for coffee but silent. We never looked at this the same way before and now we will always consider the yawn as described here.
30. The mug
Some marketers choose a rather interesting approach when they want to be a step ahead of the competition. The owner of this coffee shop decided to make some fun of a huge competitor – Starbucks. You can see they chose the funniest way to do it!
