Digital Signage â our journey (part 2): How we improved our content and engagement
In the previous article, we shared how we started our digital signage project and what challenges we faced along the way. In this article, we will focus on how we improved our content and engagement with our audience using digital signage.
One of the main goals of digital signage is to communicate effectively with your target audience. To achieve this, you need to create content that is relevant, informative, attractive and interactive. Here are some of the steps we took to improve our content and engagement:
We conducted a survey to understand the needs and preferences of our audience. We asked them what kind of information they wanted to see on the screens, how often they looked at them, what motivated them to interact with them, and what feedback they had for us.
We analyzed the data from the survey and identified the key themes and topics that our audience was interested in. We also learned about their preferred formats, styles, colors and fonts.
We created a content calendar and a content strategy based on the survey results. We planned what content to display on each screen, when to update it, how to measure its impact and how to optimize it.
We used a variety of content types and formats to keep our audience engaged. We used text, images, videos, animations, quizzes, polls, games and more. We also used dynamic content that changed according to the time of day, weather, location or user input.
We tested and evaluated our content regularly using analytics tools and feedback mechanisms. We tracked metrics such as views, clicks, interactions, dwell time, conversions and satisfaction. We also collected feedback from our audience using surveys, comments, ratings and reviews.
We iterated and improved our content based on the data and feedback we collected. We made changes to the content design, layout, frequency, duration and interactivity. We also added new features and functionalities to enhance the user experience.
By following these steps, we were able to improve our content and engagement with our audience using digital signage. We saw an increase in the number of people who looked at our screens, interacted with them and took action based on them. We also received positive feedback from our audience who appreciated the value and variety of our content.
In the next article, we will share how we scaled up our digital signage project and what benefits we gained from it. Stay tuned!

Scaling up a digital signage project can be challenging, especially if you have multiple screens across different locations and audiences. You need to manage the hardware, software, network, content and performance of your screens efficiently and effectively. Here are some of the steps we took to scale up our digital signage project:
We invested in reliable and robust hardware and software solutions that could support our growing number of screens and content. We chose devices that were easy to install, configure, update and troubleshoot. We also used cloud-based software that allowed us to manage our screens remotely and securely.
We established a clear and consistent network infrastructure that ensured the connectivity and bandwidth of our screens. We used wired or wireless connections depending on the availability and reliability of the network. We also used backup solutions in case of network failures or disruptions.
We created a centralized and standardized content management system that enabled us to create, edit, schedule and distribute content to our screens easily and quickly. We used templates, presets and rules to ensure the consistency and quality of our content. We also used automation and integration tools to streamline our content workflow and update our content dynamically.
We implemented a comprehensive and proactive performance monitoring system that helped us to measure and improve the effectiveness of our screens and content. We used dashboards, reports and alerts to track the status, health and performance of our screens. We also used analytics, feedback and testing tools to evaluate the impact and outcomes of our content.
We developed a scalable and flexible team structure that could handle the increasing complexity and diversity of our digital signage project. We assigned roles and responsibilities to each team member based on their skills and expertise. We also provided training, support and communication tools to ensure the collaboration and coordination of our team.
By following these steps, we were able to scale up our digital signage project successfully and efficiently. We saw an increase in the reach, coverage and visibility of our screens across different locations and audiences. We also gained several benefits from our digital signage project such as:
Increased brand awareness and recognition
Improved customer loyalty and retention
Enhanced customer experience and satisfaction
Boosted sales and revenue
Reduced costs and waste
Improved internal communication and productivity
