Reflect Shares Top Digital Signage Tips for Retailers
(DALLAS) March 15, 2011 –Reflect, a leading full-service provider of in-store digital media solutions, today released quick tips for retailers looking to implement in-store digital media or improve upon their current in-store digital media strategy. Reflect will be exhibiting at GlobalShop, the world’s largest annual event for retail design and shopper marketing, in Las Vegas, March 28-30 at booth #1257.
Strategic Alignment – Optimize marketing efforts by aligning in-store digital media, mobile and social media with consistent messaging and cross-promotion. For example, use digital signage to drive awareness for mobile apps and Facebook fan pages. Alignment will allow you to connect with shoppers pre-store, in-store and post-store.
Product Engagement – Researchers have found that when consumers touch an item for more than a few seconds, they are more willing to buy it. Encourage your shoppers’ natural inclination to purchase by installing engaging and interactive assisted shopping features, such as product information videos and side-by-side product comparisons, prompted by customers’ touchscreen activity and/or interaction with physical sensors, buttons and product lift triggers.
Content Management – Flexible, easy-to-use network platforms are as important as the content they are delivering. Choose a solutions provider whose distribution capabilities are so easy that one person can control thousands of displays at once – eliminating the labor constraints some in-store digital media networks may present.
Targeted Messaging – Today’s shoppers are not responsive to one-size-fits-all messaging. With the proper in-store digital media network, retailers and brands can put their consumer research to use and target shoppers with relevant, personalized messaging based on time of day, day of week, geographic location and in-store location.
Reflect recently launched Audience TouchPoint, a new solution that increases product engagement and interaction, as an addition to its market-leading ReflectView software suite. Audience TouchPoint supports assisted shopping features, such as product information videos and side-by-side product comparisons, triggered by customers’ physical product interaction and/or touchscreen activity.
The ReflectView platform, currently deployed by leading brands, such as Best Buy, Verizon Wireless, Target, GameStop and CBS Outdoor, provides retailers and brands with the ability to control and distribute content across enterprise-class, in-store digital media networks from a single location, leading to a deeper connection and increased interaction with customers. With the addition of Audience TouchPoint and two other recently launched solutions, HD MediaPoint and Mobile MessagePoint, to the current suite, retailers and brands can now manage all components of their in-store digital media with the ReflectView platform.
“As a trusted partner to some of the biggest names in retail, our in-store digital media technology is constantly evolving to fit the growing needs of our clients and to keep them as leaders in in-store innovation,” said Matt Schmitt, co-founder and president of Reflect. “At Reflect, we’re marking our 10th anniversary with a renewed focus on new product development. With the release of solutions like Audience TouchPoint, we’re looking to introduce retailers to fresh ideas that can provide their clients with informative, experiential shopping experiences.”
Throughout the duration of GlobalShop, Reflect will host demonstrations of its technology and be on hand to provide retailers with additional tips on in-store digital media.
