Number 5:Content is Still King: Long Live the King!

Digital signage can make a big impact, but it is also subject to the same filtering and ignoring that people use to tune out other media.

Failing to consider the screen content adequately, can result in a lack of stickability. This needs to be carefully considered to ensure that viewers not only notice a message, but actually digest and process the information.
