Top 10 reasons why you should use digital signage

Posted: April 23, 2010 at 4:25 pm   /   by   /   comments (2)

This week, Advertise Me decided to put together our own TOP 10 reasons why you should use digital signage and here’s our list in no particular order:

  • The “wow” factor, if you want to stand out from your competitors, digital signage attracts attention and it’s definitely a way to attract customers into your store
  • Because the other guy down the road has it – this may sound childish but it’s human nature to feel as though you need it because someone else has it
  • For large shopping centres, digital signage is a revenue driving tool to generate money from advertisers. Digital signage can also used as a tool for notifying customers of information/sales/events to get more customers coming into the shopping centre
  • It helps engage the customers at the point of sale – sales have increased with this approach (you can easily find proof of this from case studies that can be found on the Internet)
  • Eliminates the cost and waiting time compared to printing. Content can be updated at any time and almost instantly
  • Digital Signage gives the user the ability to run campaigns at certain time blocks during the day, and switching over to show relevant information depending on the time of the day. That means you’re in control of what is displayed to your audience
  • Digital Signage can be used as a tool to interact with your customers. At times this can act as an extra sales person when all staff are busy – it definitely keeps customers entertained rather than waiting to be served.  Especially something for the blokes while they wait for their partners trying on countless clothes, it keeps everyone happy
  • It’s cool and makes the environment more “livelier”. If done correctly it creates a unique atmosphere
  • You will be able to display different types of content (advertisements, live TV, images, news, weather, basically whatever you want) on the same screen
  • It helps your marketing team effectively and efficiently communicate messages with your customers, clients and employees

Do you agree or disagree with some of these reasons? Let us know of any other reasons why you should use digital signage.

    I think quite a number of businesses like yourself who come from the traditional static signs are hesitant to use this technology because of the technical support required, however I would suggest you work with someone like Advertise Me who have been in the industry for a number of years and are able to provide a solution that requires very little technical support. Advertise Me is able to provide you with the complete package and not just supply you with hardware – they can support you both technically and strategically.

    I’ve got to agree with you on all the benefits of digital signage, but I am a little wary to jumping in due mainly to the continual technical support that I can forsee clients needing. I’m not arguing that they are not thte future, I’m just a little wary.
