5 Benefits of Digital Signage in Retail

July 13, 2022

When it comes to digital signage, the question shouldn’t be why, but why not invest? Gone are the days of solely using printed signage to communicate with your customers; digital signage offers a wide variety of advantages, especially in a retail space. You, your employees, and your customers will all benefit from this technological upgrade. 

From the display screen experts at Fortec US, here are five benefits to adding digital signage to your retail business:

Drive In Traffic

One of the most important benefits of digital signage is its ability to drive traffic into your retail space. The screen-obsessed world will be intrigued by your bold graphics and videos and be more likely to enter and stay in your store to shop. With the number of retail stores around, it’s important to find every way you can to pique the interest of potential shoppers to beat the competition, and digital signage is proven to do just that.  

Increase Sales

The goal of any retail store owner is to make sales. Well, digital signs can help do just that. Your screens can display information about sales, new items, directions, and so much more. Overall, digital signage helps improve the customer experience and better overall communication from the business to the customers, which will, in turn, increase your sales. 


With print signage, everything is set in stone once it’s printed. It takes materials, time, money, and effort to get new posters and paper to advertise your message. One of the best parts of digital screens is that they can be changed and customized however and whenever you like. You can update your screens to display whatever message you want, with fewer materials, time, and work than print signage.  

Repurpose Social Media Content

Social media is very influential to today’s audiences and their purchasing decisions. A business’s social media graphics can help build brand identity and recognition, leading to more new and returning customers. With digital signage, it’s easy to repurpose the content you have on your social media and get it directly in front of your customers. If you want to get even more creative, you can set up live posting updates, so when users post about your retail store online, it will be updated directly in-store to share with others.  

Internal Communications

Not only will your customers benefit from digital signage, but your staff will too. With digital screens, you can also communicate more effectively with your workers so they get the information you need them to know. Screens can also help with scheduling, payments, training, and more; the possibilities for using digital screens to improve the management and flow of your business are endless.
