We practically waited almost 2months for our application for business & signboard license to be approved. We started out our business then with a registered company name while waiting for it. Been very lucky i would say to get it in 2months cause i have friends of other companies waited more than 4 months and have to follow up on it TO GET IT. Sometimes they get the " You want it now? I can get for you now, if you know what i mean?" kinda thing. I learn a lot on owning your own music school and running it, I have customer claimed that we are a scam and will leave with their money after collecting it simply because we haven't have our signboard up. I mean he is talking about his RM80/= , if i would scam i might consider 7 digits fee to really do it. LOL....
We spend 2months on students enrolling but most of them are friends and people that knew us. It was regular. The thing happen after we manage to put our flag up.
The MUSIC STAR ACADEMY signboard, we got a great deal. RM530 complete on installing, we got lucky enough to have a box ready and was given by our landlord.We only need to print the front and install it. A Steal i would say.
Before this, i never knew what a signboard may or may not do to a school. I don't see the help as it only serves a purpose of owning a company and do a little in promoting. After we put it up i was amazed by it's power. A 13' x 4' piece of printing that consist of a design with a company's name or logo on it, has the power to attract people.
I am amazed that my phone don't stop ringing and when i pickup , it's about a new student or a customer interested to buy 1 of my products. We now have BZ Sundays, and long weekdays of customer.
