In the world of advertising and marketing, in regards to out of home communications, digital signage has become a key component of media that provides a perfect tool for businesses. However, in order for digital signage to become effective, the screen orientation must also be considered apart from all the other aspects.
As time goes by, technology continues to advance. With the advent of the digital age, more and more entities are turning to the Internet to transact business. With that being said, will it also be feasible to transfer to digital format in terms of marketing products and services? Studies have shown that about 80% of entities who have used digital signage marketing have experienced at least a 33% increase in sales compared to what they have earned using old fashioned or conventional marketing. There is no denying the fact that switching to digital signage is beneficial to any business, but to what extent?
