Why You Should Have a Touch Screen at your Exhibit

Whether you’re the owner of a museum or curate art, you’re probably on the hunt for ways to keep your exhibits interesting for your attendees. Whether that entails bright lights and sounds or a free incentive, nothing is really off the drawing board. However, one of the best features to include is a custom touch screen display — but why is that?

Fun

Can you recall the last time you thoroughly enjoyed an exhibit at a local museum or gallery? One of the best ways to keep your audience coming back for more is to incorporate an interactive element with your display. This will not only build word-of-mouth traffic (because who wouldn’t like to check out an interactive element?), but the screens can be repurposed with new digital content in the years to come!

Informative

Years ago, it was common for many exhibits to have tour guides — but that’s not something that you usually see nowadays. If you’re looking to give your guests a great experience, then an interactive touch screen display is the answer. Think about it like this: the screen can implement slides that will not only keep your audience informed, but it can even incorporate a section that will let them ask their own questions; the possibilities are endless!

Long Term

Unlike printing out signage for your exhibit, a custom touch screen from Apollo can be transformed over the years. It’s the same concept as pulling a window up on your desktop computer; the digital presentation can be changed over the years, which is perfect for the museum or curator that wants to bring something new to their audiences down the line.

The Best Ways to Clean a Touch Screen Display

Just like a smartphone, a touch screen display has the potential to get a series of fingerprints and smudges on it over time. This not only takes away from the display but will actually be slightly annoying for anyone who happens to encounter it. If you’re looking for ways to keep your touch screen display clean, then here are some tips:

Microfiber Cloth

Coming in a variety of shapes and sizes, a microfiber cleaning cloth will be the best way to keep your touch screen as clean as new! Unlike a traditional cloth or paper towel, a microfiber cloth will be able to remove smudges within a matter of seconds. This will help keep your unit in pristine condition and will be simple to do on a daily basis (if needed).

Alcohol Wipe

Since you’ll want to avoid using water or any cleaning solutions on your device, opting for an alcohol wipe will be the best solution. These sanitary wipes can be found in-store or online at many different retailers and will not only help give your unit a deep cleaning, but it will also prevent the buildup of germs and bacteria from spreading.

We do suggest that if you’re using one of these wipes (or something similar), to avoid drenching your unit, since that might lead to smudging, forcing you to clean it again.

Water

Another cleaning solution you can use is water — but use it very sparingly. Just by taking a microfiber cloth, put a small spritz of h20 on the cloth and wipe down the screen from top to bottom, repeating the process. This will not only help keep your unit clean, but it will also remove the smudges in the process.

Here’s Why Restaurants Need Digital Displays

You know the feeling well: you’re in town, walking around — when suddenly your stomach starts to rumble. Of course, there are a few different restaurants you can choose from, but none catch your eye. Restauranteers, if you’re looking to capture the attention of potential customers, then here’s why you’ll need to invest in a custom digital display:

Helps Standout

When it comes to marketing your business to locals roaming the street, they’re likely more inclined to step inside if something catches their eye — rather than a window display that’s cluttered, outdated or dreary. When you opt to include a custom digital display from Apollo, you can place a thin flat panel display, which can display photos of the specials you’re serving, exciting announcements, and even something for any upcoming holidays.

Increases Word-of-Mouth

One of the most valuable marketing tools any business can utilize is word-of-mouth marketing. Not only is this essential for audience growth and increased revenue, but it also helps boost foot traffic to new, substantial heights. If you take a glance at some of the trendiest spots in your town, what do they usually offer?

For some, it might be a photo op to entice customers to post on social media, while for others it could be a special in-store-only special. When you opt to bring in a custom digital display, you’ll be bringing that “wow factor” to your town, in addition to gaining the audience that you’re longing for.

Ways to Implement a Digital Display in 2019

At last, it has finally arrived: the new year — and what better way to step into 2019 than with a custom digital display! Of course, you might be under the impression that there are only a few uses for a custom screen, but in fact, there are many. If you’re looking to give your business an upgrade, then here are some suggestions on how to incorporate this feature:

Greeting Screen

Does your business have a lobby or waiting room? If so, then including a custom digital display will be an excellent way to advertise the latest news to your audience. Whether it’s a small screen by the receptionist’s desk or a panel that is mounted to the wall, this will be the perfect way to spread the word. Think about it like this: the retention rate, of a message, is much higher when it’s presented to an audience that is sitting in one place for a period of time.

Memo Center

Another great way to implement a digital screen into an environment is to create a memo center. Whether it be in the center of a retail setting or an office building, this will be the perfect way to keep your audience informed about local happenings/updates, without the struggle of sending out a newsletter or standard mail. Additionally, you can even incorporate an option that will let people add to the memo board, just in case there are any updates they may have on their end.

Interactive Displays Always Win — and Here’s Why

When you pick up your smartphone or tablet, what’s one of the most compelling features of each device? Of course, these are necessary means for communication — but the reason why you gravitate towards them is due to their touchscreen compatibility. This same concept applies with a custom interactive display from Apollo — but why are they so important? Let us take a closer look:

Hands-on Approach

When learning, what’s one method that will help you get a better sense of what you’re learning? For most, it might be using repetition as an exercise — but what about having a hands-on approach, instead? Believe it or not, you’ll grasp the entire concept of a message when you interact with it. This will be the most effective way to help your audience retain your message in a fun, interactive way.

Custom Message

Think of it like this: if an audience member is viewing your message at the palm of their hand, what’s one way you could make your message stand out? Simply customize it, thanks to an interactive display. Unlike traditional print media, an interactive unit will let you incorporate game-like features to make your message stand out among the rest. In fact, a custom interactive display will let you create the most perfect unit of your choice, without losing sight of your intended message.
