1. What Type of Digital Signage Best Suits Your Need?

Before investing in digital signage, you need to think long and hard about what you are trying to achieve. Do you want to inform a prospective customer about your company or are you trying to get them to take a specific action? Most digital signs are designed to provide consumers with information about a company and do not require them to take action.

If you are looking for a mix of interactive kiosk and digital signage, then a hybrid is probably your best option. While these hybrid displays may be a bit expensive, they are well worth the money considering the increased level of convenience they can offer the consumer.

2. The Amount of Space You Have Available

Considering the amount of space you have available for a new digital sign is also a good idea. These displays come in a number of shapes and sizes. Neglecting to take a few measurements of the space you have can lead to the wrong purchase being made.

Consulting with professionals in the digital signage industry is a great way to get some guidance when trying to make this difficult decision. These professionals can offer you advice on everything from how big your display needs to be to what type of content you should put on it.

3. Choosing the Path With the Highest Amount of Foot Traffic

Placing your digital signs in the right place is the best way to have maximum impact with your company’s message. Utilizing the high amount of traffic in places like the mall will allow you to get more attention and possibly more customers over time. Failing to place your signs in the right place will lead to a lot of money and time being wasted.

4. Content is King

Having engaging and informative content on your digital signs is key when trying to entice people who are passing by. When trying to develop content to put on your digital sign, you need to keep it short and sweet. You need to realize that the people who will be reading this content will generally be in a hurry.

This is why the content you put on the sign should be brief and powerful. Informing the person reading the sign about the benefits of your products and services is imperative. Providing information about these benefits can spark a person’s interest, which will lead to them taking the next step in the sales journey.

Investing in quality digital signs is something you should view as a priority. Attempting to cut corners on the quality of the signs you use to save a few dollars will usually lead to big problems in the long run.
