Digital signs are quickly becoming the norm for advertising efficiently and effectively. The rapid growth in this advertising sector can be attributed to their ease of use, engaging and eye catching display, and the lower cost of the screens themselves, allowing businesses to digitally merchandise and reach a far greater number of potential and existing customers than ever before.
Targeting an audience has never been easier. Digital signs allow the change of content on a regular basis, with very little effort or cost. The messages can target a specific group at a certain time of day, allowing for the scheduling of content based on the audience at a specific time. Content can be adapted as necessary to ensure fresh information is available to the public and does not become stale.
Digital advertising is popping up everywhere, no just in businesses, but also inside public transportation. Signs in airports and subways reach a large number of people everyday, thus it is important to ensure that the message is eye catching and constantly changing to ensure fresh content. Using these signs is far more beneficial than paper advertising, and allows users to reach potential customers every day.
Processing and printing times for paper advertising can be time consuming and a constant cost. It can cause draining of an advertising budget before all information can be made available. With digital signs, there is little time needed to get a campaign to the public, and the cost is minimal compared to other methods. This is important no matter the size or budget of the business.
Some digital signs are owned by the business itself, and display an array of information pertaining just to that establishment. Software allows for easy creation of the messages, and is uploaded to the screen as necessary through the use of a USB flash, SD memory card, or on a CD. These are traditionally used as message boards within the business to keep customers up to date on current campaigns and to get important information out in a cost and time effective way.
Companies that purchase and install signs in many different locations rent time and space to advertisers wishing to use their signs. This is especially useful for businesses that do not have their own sign, or are not in a high enough traffic area to make purchasing their own digital sign practical.
Digital signs are versatile, and are used indoors and outdoors. They allow any business to reach their audience no matter where those potential customers are. With good content, eye catching colors and animations, and a regularly changing message, it is easy to engage customers and draw their eye to digital signs.
Digital signs are a versatile and cost effective way to catch the public’s attention, and reach a far greater audience than paper, radio and television advertising. Attracting and captivating potential customers is the purpose of any campaign, and digital merchandising is the easiest way to do so.
