Due to the extreme proliferation of ways to reach consumers, they finally have had enough and are fighting back. Now being exposed more than ever, constantly bombarded with more promises that aren’t kept, more value that can be delivered, feeling pressured to buying something unnecessary and literally being followed around the internet consumers have developed a rather hostile attitude toward marketing practices. Ads are described as intrusive and obnoxious and ad blocking options are at the top of everyone’s Google search. VPNs, browser add-ons, add-blocking programs and apps that will protect your phone – there are a lot of options to block your communication methods. That being said, the only good option to build a sustainable brand in 2019 is by fully endorsing honesty in marketing communications, creating a personal experience, and adding creativity and entertainment. Digital signage can help you reach those goals, let’s see why DS is what you need to build a sustainable brand.
DS can help you display better communication
Digital signage can significantly improve internal and external communication. Of course, any communication strategies are viable if employees are actually paying attention to them, that is why digital signage is a preferred method of communication with employees in more than half of offices in the US. Messaging on the screen is impossible to ignore, unlike e-mails, FB groups or Newsletters.
DS is the best way of communication in retail. There is no better way to grab one’s attention, to provide in-store communication, and navigation. Screens provide consumers with needed information in a non-intrusive, entertaining way. It is the best way to inform, engage and empower your customer base.
Integration of mobile and DOOH will help you to offer sustainable messaging to your customers through in-depth data analysis. This kind of communication is personalized and considered to be more memorable. QR codes, AR or Beacons will help you engage more of your on-to-go customer base on the spot and drive them to the POS.
