Digital Signage: The Future of Retail – Vlog
Blog written by Esther Chew
The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technology in the retail industry by about six years. With vaccinations well underway across the region, consumer foot traffic into physical stores is on the rise as economies start to open. It is a time of resurgence in the brick-and-mortar environment and an excellent opportunity to reconnect with customers by reinventing the in-store experience.
Statistics show that eight out of ten shoppers entered a store because a digital sign caught their interest, and over 60% of consumers have noted that digital signage persuaded them to purchase advertised products in place of or in addition to their intended purchase.
Digital signage constructs a unique, “phygital” environment, meaning it brings the online experience into the physical store. Digital signage helps retailers to create a frictionless, personalised and interactive shopping experience by analysing critical customer data and displaying targeted messages. By adding well-placed displays across the store, retailers can add compelling content to their shoppers’ experience. Signage can include ads from vendors, branding campaigns, social media testimonials, and upsell opportunities.
