Color Art Integrated Interiors Digital Signage Content Proposal Tuesday, December 11, 2012

DIGITAL CONTENT STRATEGY ELEMENTS In order for the 5 digital signage screens to be used to effectively communicate messaging that is dynamic and fresh, the main components of the content strategy are outlined.

DIGITAL SIGNS Color Art currently has 5 different signage systems: 1. Tec Panel near Media Lounge 2. 3x3 square on Microtiles 3. 4x1 vertical on Microtiles 4. 1x3 horizontal on Microtiles 5. Warehouse Monitor

ELEMENTS BROKEN DOWN 1. The first step is creating 18 custom, corporate templates that can be used for each of the companies as well as the integrated company. Each company will need two formats: 16:9 and 4:3 ratios. 2. Once these custom templates are designed, a well-planned and balanced playlist is crucial in the overall effectiveness in reaching and engaging the viewers. The content relevancy, content flow and number of impressions during the viewer’s visit are important attributes that make a successful digital signage network. The content mix and content loop length are two key ingredients in constructing the playlist. 3. Content Mix: One of the goals of a good content mix is to capture the attention of the audience and to engage the viewers for the longest possible time. This will drive the ultimate playlist with loop length, target audience, etc. I have divided up the Content Mix into 5 categories: A. Corporate Branding (individual company info, news, showroom maps or facility photos, community programs, green initiatives, what's new? etc) B. Product Showcasing (which can include products from all companies)

C. Vertical Marketing (includes both experiential marketing pieces - where the sign can be used to provide market examples ie: a directory in a hospital - and actual vertical market pieces that enhance the products and services provided in healthcare, education, etc) D. Eye Candy (includes seasonal, holiday, sporting or current event samples ie: the 2012 election) E. Data driven elements (includes weather, rss and social media feeds, traffic, etc) *note, data driven elements may have additional fees costed to them based on the items selected.

4. Content Loop

The next step is setting up a playlist - my recommendation to start

would be a 6 minute loop and might look something like this:

1. Corporate brand – 15 sec. 2. Community involvement –30 sec. 3. Product – 15 sec. 4. Eye candy – 30 sec. 5. Vertical Marketing – 60 sec. 6. Product – 30 sec. 7. Corporate brand – 30 sec. 8. Eye candy – 15 sec. 9. Product – 30 sec. 10. Community involvement –15 sec. 11. Product – 15 sec. 12. Education – 30 sec. 13. Corporate brand – 15 sec. 14. Eye candy – 15 sec. 15. Product – 15 sec.

Once the 18 templates have been created, the next part of your

production budget will depend on how much you want to spend

and how much of the assets you currently have on hand. Custom production of content will depend on whether or not you desire a 15 second piece or a 60 second piece. Each of these elements will have to be priced on an as-needed basis. A Content Subscription is a good way to get generic content on a monthly basis based on the theme/content you prefer. Themes will be agreed upon while finalizing content marketing strategy.


1. CA Integrated brand – 15 sec.

2. Recent WINs from Color Art companies – 30 sec.
