Being obsessed with finding a great deal seems to be the new trend when it comes to a customer’s point of view.
Be honest, if you were one of those Black Friday shoppers a couple months ago, you probably looked through the ads, for possibly hours, planning and mapping out which stores to hit for which items, based solely on the price, and nothing else. I would wager that things such as brand, store it came from, specifications, and quality, were low on the priority list, compared to price.
The digital signage world runs a little differently in that you don’t get a declared holiday full of advertisements to compare pricing and specifications for those that implement this solution for you.
