Stage One – Identify goals and conceptualize
The beginning steps involve understanding what the objective is, or what problem needs to be solved. Identifying your short and long-term goals is imperative, whether they be to improve product awareness, increase in-store foot traffic or boost sales without compromising the farm to do so. Therefore, your space needs improvement – let’s work on that.
If your project requires buy-in or approval from others, detailing out what you intend to do in a presentable format is paramount. Begin by identifying what would help gain interest from outside parties. You may create drawings or mock up a photo of the location, by adding screens to it to help stakeholders visualize.
Once the objectives have been identified, our dedicated team and yours can collectively gather brainstorming ideas to improve your space. Our team is well versed in the latest and greatest technologies for digital signage, but we don’t sell the latest thing, we work to identify the best options for your network.
We can quickly help you determine the components needed to execute upon your vision, whether that is as simple as a single screen to relax waiting patients, or as complex as a fully immersive and interactive video wall to thrill prospective TV buyers. By the end of Stage One, your goals should be clear, and a potential solution identified. This will enable testing and stakeholder review.
Stage Two – Installing the pilot for the digital signage project
