Love it or hate it, social media in all its forms is here to stay. That means businesses of all kinds must have a carefully strategized social media presence.
However, how do you create an effective synergy between your social media accounts and your digital signage screens? And how can you even display Facebook or Twitter feeds on your TVs? Because there are countless benefits to displaying social media walls through digital signage, we have added Walls.io to our long list of free digital signage apps. Maximizing the marketing potential of social media content proves a unique challenge to most businesses. And this service lets you design great hybrid social media walls quickly and easily that then get displayed on your signage screens in just a few clicks.
Why display social media as digital signage content in the first place?
Firstly, not everyone has accounts with the myriad of social media platforms available to businesses. Secondly, the content you already posted, Tweeted or shared offers valuable insight into your business. From photos of new products, to customer testimonials and videos of events, your social media acts as a calling card for new customers. Why not leverage all that power of persuasion in an in-store and on-screen environment as well? Especially since you’ve already prepared and optimized all this promotional content, it makes business sense to use social media as digital signage content.
Furthermore, marketing experts argue that social media significantly increases a company’s revenue. When a new customer walks through the door, you have precious few seconds to make a favorable first impression. Therefore, all your carefully curated social media content could quickly contribute to creating a positive initial customer experience. Moreover, the old adage that seeing is believing can’t be more true when it comes to industries such as retail stores and restaurants. Once a shopper sees posts about how other people love you, or videos showcasing new products, you generate quick social proof. Social media as digital signage content advertises your promotions and also reassures customers they can expect a stellar experience.
Additionally, displaying social media as digital signage content encourages other customers to post their own comments or reactions. That means you can get positive testimonials and new content instantly. Of course, it’s also an easy way to get user-generated content that increases brand awareness.
