“The Original Sign Waving Machine” to be Featured on ABC’s “Shark Tank”

Sacramento businessmen Scott Adams and Josh Faherty, co-inventors of Velocity Signs, “The Original Sign Waving Machine”, will be featured on the critically-acclaimed business-themed show, Shark Tank airing Thursday, April 10 at 8:00 p.m. PST on the ABC Television Network.

The Velocity Signs product is an innovative, battery-operated, robotic sign waving machine that provides businesses with the ability to market their products/services/events without the problematic issues that often arise with managing human sign holders. There are various customizable features available for this machine to ensure the highest possible exposure when placed in high traffic areas.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the Shark Tank show because we truly believe our product makes an immediate impact for local businesses by increasing sales and saving money,” said Scott Adams, founder & CEO of Velocity Signs. “That our product is now available worldwide allows local businesses to promote their brand in a creative way, stand out amongst the advertising clutter and simultaneously grow their business.

“The results have been great for our clients – we’ve seen business owners utilizing their additional revenue funds to hire employees, provide health benefits, give back to their local community, and some are taking a vacation with their family for the first time in years!”

Velocity Signs was selected from a pool of 30,000 applicants for the show’s current season. As a hit show on ABC, Shark Tank features “Sharks” (i.e. highly-successful businesspersons and company owners) who are searching to invest in “the next” best businesses and products that America has to offer. The Sharks featured in this episode are Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Robert Herjavec, and Kevin O’Leary.

Since its inception, Velocity Signs have been proven to increase sales for local businesses by an average of 15 percent ($90,000 for most businesses) and are proven to save over $25,000 per year when superseding the staffing of sign holders. Notable brands who’ve utilized this robotic technology include: Ford®, Chevy®, Nissan®, Verizon Wireless®, H&R Block®, Little Caesars®, Subway®, McDonald's®, Burger King®, Togo's®, Baskin Robbins®, Golden State Warriors (NBA), AM/PM®, Papa Murphy's Pizza®, Precision Tune®, Del Taco®, Domino's®, Great Clips®, Sport Clips®, Fantastic Sams®, and Anytime Fitness®.
