Why Too Many Digital Signage Networks Fail — And What to Do About it

The difference between success and failure in nearly anything is measured in that small incremental increase on the margin. The marginal difference is what often separates the brilliant scholar and the talented athlete from the nobody.

Is there any thought leadership left?

When you’ve been in an industry for several years, you notice a growing trend: much of what is written is regurgitated.

Free ≠ Cheap: Overcoming the Psychology that Says Expensive = Quality

It’s reasonable to consider something of lower quality when it comes to us at a bargain. Discount and free items naturally make us feel the items themselves are of sub-par quality.

We’ve finally finished the complete revamp of the deploid.com domain to signage.biz. It’s been too long coming, but the day has finally arrived. Getting things right takes time.
