As digital signage becomes increasingly more sophisticated, many companies are starting to market their ads by employing smart and tactical methods. The above video shows a very smart marketing method in which to target potential consumers in a high traffic zone area. A company which desired to advertise a new hair product, decided to set up a digital signage screen at a busy subway station. The ad itself is extremely effective, yet simple. Every time a train zooms past the ad to arrive at its stop, a smiling model’s hair gets blown around the wind. Equipped with ultra sonic sensors, the screen is able to detect motion as a subway train zips by and approaches its stop. As shown in the video, the ad sparks a lot of interest and gives commuters a very lifelike experience that’s enjoyable to view. This just shows how effective marketing your ad with digital signage can be. The ad itself is extremely simple, there is barely any text and audio, yet it still manages to get its message across to its audience.

Your time is a valuable, so why waste your time standing in line. Whether it’s at a bank, the healthcare center, or DMV, many people are required to wait in a long line for often an undetermined amount of time. Digital signage is a great tool to use for providing a more efficient and productive queue management system. For instance, instead of having people sign their name on a notepad and wait in line, an effective queue management system would allow for people to use a touch screen monitor to sign up their name and information. The system can then transfer that data to a monitor in the waiting room. People sitting in the waiting room can view their name and the time necessary to wait. This is more reassuring than just signing your name on a piece of paper and then having to wait for an undetermined amount of time. People value their time and freedom, which is why digital signage is an extremely effective solution.
It’s also useful for displaying entertainment or product advertisements at a retail store. While people are waiting in line, they can view a product being advertised and essentially this can increase sales. In addition, the information on screen is a good method of distraction, making the wait time much more bearable. The queue management system is extremely useful for making the most out of an otherwise annoying process.
