Touchscreen monitors are also very versatile and can be used in practically any environment. By using interactive displays to trigger content, customers are more responsive and you have the opportunity to showcase your products through visual marketing strategies.
Digital signage alternatives
An alternative option to interactive digital signs that gives the customer the option to choose, you can dictate the nature of your content on a loop. However, rather than constantly playing the footage, you can still engage viewers by giving them a call to action such as “press here” on the display which then triggers your chosen content to play.
This is a simple yet effective tool as you are still interacting with the customer, but not constantly bombarding them with repetitive footage that plays on a loop. Giving viewers the choice to watch content and learn more about products makes them feel less subjected to marketing tactics and thus more likely to make a purchase.
The press here option has benefits for both you and the customer. You can control the content and the viewer has a choice whether to watch it or not. It is also a cost effective alternative than running several marketing campaigns in one go like you would have to do with the multiple choice strategy.
