Digital signage is the new thing. It’s the marketing medium of the future. It’s a great way to get your brand and your message in the faces of your target audience in a new, creative, and innovative way. While digital signage sounds like an attractive component to any small business’s marketing strategy, it can also seem like a challenging task to overcome at first glance. Here’s how you can make digital signage work for you and your small business.
First things first. Before considering any form of marketing, determine your target market. No matter how much time and money you tank into a marketing strategy, it doesn’t do any good if you aren’t properly targeting your audience. Wait, back up. What’s a target audience? Let’s say you wanted to take advantage of all the great benefits that come with a cool digital sign or banner. Great. What’s your product or service? Who buys your product or service? Where does the climate or environment of your target audience look like?
What Does it Look Like?
Your product is a new skateboard with a jack for a smartphone or tablet. Your target audience is pre-teens, teenagers, or high school kids. So your digital sign should appear on buses, at the skate park, or near local hangouts or schools.
Your small business is a professional tax service, a house cleaning service, or a dog walking service. Your target audience is young to middle-aged adults who probably work full time. Therefore, your digital billboard or banner should be visible at commuting locations, near restaurants in the city during peak meal times, or banks.
