Engagement is one very important step in your customers journey, and it can lead to an increase in sales. High end digital signage can play a big part in driving this engagement.
What about providing interactive information on demand at kiosks, where customers can find out more product specifications and other details. This is a far more creative and engaging than reading a simple list of specs.
Digital signage can also be a fantastic way to increase social media interaction. Post a live feed of your Instagram account or other social media platforms. Let customers know about text-in or hashtag special sale campaigns by posting them on in-store displays. Or if you’re running an event share a live feed with the event hashtag so attendees can keep on top of the event.
